What people are saying

    Would be great to hear what others thought. My friends and I bought tickets many months ago - had seats 5 rows from the front. Fantastic concert but appalling sound. We could see the obviously virtuoso pianist's fingers flying over the keyboard, but mostly heard nothing at all - unless it was purely a piano accompaniment. As soon as the rest of the band came in - all piano sound stopped. Sound appeared unbalanced and very loud - with no melody at times. We paid a lot of perfectly good money, so should have had a perfectly good sound. So disappointing for what was obviously a stunning show. Simply not a good enough sound for us. Shame. Did we hear something different at the front to what everyone else did maybe?

    I treated myself, wife and two international family guests to the Melbourne show at the Palais Theatre and was blown away how powerfully professional the whole team is. The best concert Ive ever had the privillage of seeing. Cant get enough of their Facebook clips. The amount of seemingly endless talented singers and musicians and constant newer and more brilliantly aranged Jazz numbers of such well known songs is more than refreashing.

    I have to agree that this years sound engineering was poor & didn't do justice to a great show from the PMJ team. I had the very front row this year in Wellington's Opera House and the sound levels for the centre mic in front of the drummer that the vocalists used was down on levels , as was Cloe's mic - couldn't hear the sax alot of the time .Last year I had the second to front row - almost the same position, same venue & the sound quality was great. Still loved the show & will go back again !!!

    Sound as well for me ... we were in the next level up .... and the sound was bad for the higher level vocals.... it was however still a fantastic gig
  • Sarah - 2 years ago

    It's the acoustics at the Town Hall. Always been bad!
    The show was fun ,night energy and brilliant .
  • Dave McCarthy - 2 years ago

    We were at the Auckland gig. The piano - the KEY instrument - was absent from the mix. His virtuoso rag-time playing so important but inaudible.

    The bass was there in frequency but not in clarity. Sadly, the sound man seemed to be out of his element with this genre. It felt like a waste of money as I had come to hear the brilliance of Scott Bradley's playing and arrangements.
