Corporate Events

In a world where it is becoming increasingly difficult to present events which are both stimulating and different, many of Perth’s top companies are using the services of one entertainer to bring something fresh to their corporate functions.

James Wilson is a professional musician with over 20 years’ experience in the Australian Music Industry. He has toured extensively throughout Australia and South East Asia and over this time James has performed for a long list of corporate clients, many of which have continued to use his services over many years.

Testimonials

Cheryl Bresland – Gurus Entertainment & Management

James Wilson has performed at many corporate events for me over the last 6 years and without any hesitation, we very proudly present him to our clients of distinction.   From casual lunches, to official ceremonies, and stylish dinner events, James works his Denims and Tuxedo equally as gracefully to suit the occasion.  Simply put, he is a wonder talent, a highly professional operator, and a gentleman.

His unique skillset ranks him in a class of his own as he is both a soloist and a band.  His extensive repertoire is matched by his extensive instrumental lineup – all of which are played at the same time and cause jaw-dropping awe in those that witness it.  With that much talent going on, he could be forgiven if his vocals warbled, but Mr Smooth has all the bases covered and he’s just as comfortable belting out an Australian Rock Anthem as he is with a tender ballad of heartbreaking proportions.

Bands should fear him, because if the world had a dozen more like him, there’d be 1650 muso’s out of regular work.  As it is, Perth has him – and we are grateful for that luck.  If in doubt, try him – then you’ll know what you would have missed out on.

Highly Recommended!

His diversity of style to capture the crowd and entertain with his unique musical ability is second to none.  Whether it is for an intimate corporate dinner or a major awards night with hundreds of people or a celebration party, James’ unique talents are enjoyed by all.  James Wilson’s voice is amazing and his ability to play multiple instruments at once is incredible.  We will definitely have James back!

James was incredible, I had so many compliments about his music, and so many people asking me who he was so they could book him for their club/personal events.

He was a great fit for the evening, and even managed to have a lot of people up and dancing at the end of the night too.

! would love to have him back again next year.

Tara Gindein – FMG Legends Dinner – 2014

James was fantastic, we were extremely happy with him in every aspect.  He was professional, presented/dressed perfectly for the event, his music was impressive both in terms of talent/skills and his selection of music (through reading the crowd and ambience).  He even had people up and dancing at the end of the night which, for us, was an added bonus as we hadn’t really planned for that but had hoped it would happen.

I’m looking forward to hearing his music again this Friday night.

Please pass my thanks onto James, he was awesome on stage and great to work with. Very professional and flexible!

I’ve passed on your details to one of our clients who is interested in booking him and also had many more say how great he was.

I’m pleased to report that James was a highlight of the event: extremely professional, personable and with an excellent song selection and performance pitched at exactly the right level for the occasion. I was very pleased with his performance and effect on the event.

I had SO MUCH great feedback about James. I was so pleased with his performance and he will definitely be our regular (and probably be asked to play at my wedding when that comes around haha).

Very happy with the night.

Kelvin Murphy – West Coast Pistol & Revolver Club – 2015

Hi, thanks for the opportunity to leave some feedback, regarding James.

James arrived well before time and quickly and discreetly set himself up while the awards presentation was in full swing.

Right on cue he began playing and a lot of the guests were amazed that a live act had suddenly appeared out of nowhere.

His musical ability is incredible and the songs he chose to play for us were just perfect for our age group.

Everyone at the event has raved about James and all really enjoyed his showmanship as well as his choice of music.

My only regret is, his grand finale was “ In the air tonight “ by Phil Collins, complete with a three minute Didgeridoo solo to top it off and I somehow missed it, I’ve seen the photos of the entire crowd dancing, but no me.

Oh well I’ll just have to book him again.

James was brilliant on the night he performed for us in Solomon, We will be definitely looking forward to using him again in the future,

He seems to be a big hit with the FMG management here on site so that’s a big help! :-)

David Duignam – Morris Corp (Kangi Village – FMG) 2015

Thank you for referring James Wilson for our Afternoon Tea for HeartKids event on Saturday.

James was amazing and we cannot recommend him enough!  I would book James to come and sing in my back yard just for me!  He has inspired my children and so many others.  Simply incredible and so very talented.  And such a very nice guy.

Shelley Ure – Heartkids 2015

I just wanted to say thank you for again providing such a great performer over the weekend. James Wilson was very well received and easy to work with. The crowd and staff loved his enthusiasm and obvious talent.

Thanks again for another great event and I look forward to many more!

Alex Badenoch – Activelife Coach/Events Team (Barrow Island Gorgon Project) 2015

James was absolutely fantastic.

Couldn’t be happier. He is an amazing performer and a great person to deal with.

We had power issues throughout the night with the generator running out of fuel, so James was the first person to assist me, by coming up with an alternative power solution for both his PA and our main PA system – without him we would have been lost!

I had SO many people asking about James and how to book him etc, so I’m sure he will get quite a bit of business out of this gig!

Thanks again Tiffany, really happy, and will definitely be booking him again.

Thank you, Thank you & Thank you! For all your handwork in the lead up to the event on Saturday night, everything was wonderful and James was absolutely incredible so a huge thank you to him also. Could not of asked for anything better have had some great feedback and everyone loved his performances.

Once again a huge thank you to both of you :)

Stephanie Germano (i Katcher Events – BHP Xmas Party) 2014

 

James was incredible at our CEO Dinner. He is a consummate professional and such an easy person to work with. It’s rare to have so many of our guests comment on the quality of the background music, which is a testament to James’ ability.

I would gladly book James for further events.

Pippa Tearne ( Master Builders Association CEO Dinner)  2014

 

From my point of view everything went really well. It was great to work with someone professional like James who required very little assistance from our team as we were all very busy by the time we got to the venue!! He was set up and ready to go before we had even arrived J

James’ performing was really well suited to the event – he played great songs at a volume that added to the atmosphere without overwhelming conversation at the tables.

Many thanks again

Tara Davy (UWA Awards Function) 2014

 

He was brilliant thanks Nadesh!  Our only complaint is that he didn’t play long enough ha ha

Carmen.L.Sierke (BHP Billiton) 2014

 

James Wilson was absolutley wonderful…what a talent!  My client was very impressed and so were the crowd, James was the perfect choice for our event.

Thanks for following up Nadesh, I will certainly keep James and Champion Music in mind for future events

Tanya Bonivento (Manhattan Events) 2014

 

Just wanted to pass on a HUGE thank you,

James – you were absolutely outstanding last night, I have already received an email from my client saying that she was so impressed with your performance, as was her MD and other business colleagues. They would love to have you back for other events.

Thanks again, you were a breeze to work with, and you sounded sensational. I will not hesitate to recommend you to other clients.

 Elle Mazza  (Corporate Theatre Productions – Bankwest Function)  2013

 

Yes, James was great, no complaints whatsoever, he was pretty awesome.

He was such a lovely man to talk to & played so well, music / variety couldn’t be better!

I can’t wait till our next event cause I would love to hear more of him.

Natasha Chalmers  (Franklins Offshore Australia Pty Ltd)    2012

 

Everything was fantastic!

Thank you so much for all of your help, it was so easy to work with you

Ann-Maree Barbaro  (Ronald McDonald House Charities) 2012

 

James Wilson was a lovely man and a wonderfully gifted performer – people were blown away when he did songs with the didgeridoo especially. He had everyone in awe of his talent. I have had over six employees ask who he was yesterday and that he would be good at their wedding.

Please pass on our thanks and praise to James greatly deserved. He is reasonably priced so affordable and so, so, talented! Thank you and Thank him very much!

Danae Watkins  (Cardio Vascular Services) 2012

 

Client has responded to say they were happy with James Wilson performance.

They even requested he ‘crank up the dance/party’ tunes much earlier into the evening than usual as some guests wanted to the dancefloor from go, and he happily obliged.

Great work from him as usual.
