“Maria O’Flaherty & Ben Fernandez Quartet have been one of the most popular “core” bands at Coopers Creek Vineyard’s annual Summer Sunday Jazz festivals. Now into their 2nd decade of performing there, the lively musicality of the band, featuring Maria’s strong vocal lead along with good song selection, has ensured a loyal following of music and wine lovers.”
John Palmer, Cellar Door Manager at Coopers Creek Vineyard
“Over the last few years I have had the privilege of being able to “book ” Maria to sing at the Auckland Jazz and Blues Club,and for private functions.
Each time she has been very professional by arriving on time, always looks stunning,and presents a programme of very suitable material for that particular audience.
I have found Maria is easy to deal with concerning her fee for a solo performance (or with a band ) by returning any calls or emails straight away.
As a musician myself I have worked with Maria who is a delight to play for, and would not hesitate in recommending her as a singer entertainer.”
Mike Walker, President Auckland Jazz and Blues Club
“Our event was a roaring success …. we all really enjoyed the Maria O’Flaherty Quartet. We will definitely consider hiring them again and recommend them to our friends…. they went beyond our expectations!
Pete McGregor, PME Entertainment Agents, 20 December 2015
“Myself and my wife Karis have worked with Maria O’Flaherty over the years on a number of occasions, each without fault.
Maria’s professional yet approachable and personable approach makes our
entertainment for every event top class, and last but not least, stress
Maria’s contact base in the industry ensures we always have musicians
that are of the standard we expect – we trust Maria’s band for the
evening will be brilliant without the hassle of having to audition
before the event.”
David and Karis Thompson, The Wine Box, Albany, Auckland
