"Would highly recommend Mahalia for any function! We booked her and the band for our winery wedding in December 2019. Mahalia was really great to deal with leading up to the wedding and was fantastic on the night. We left the playlist up to her and the band which work great as they were able to play songs to suit the vibes throughout the night. Mahalia interacted really well with our guests and made sure there were plenty of people dancing all night. It was also very special to hear our first dance song sung live. Very happy with the service! - Stewart & Abby, Beach Road Wines

"I will start this review by mentioning how amazing Mahalia is. She is super professional yet easy to talk to, relatable, friendly, kind and caring. As my husband and I are religious we wanted a Christian song to be sung during the ceremony. Mahalia catered to this request without question and on the day, it sounded beautiful. My only regret is that I didnt have her play at our reception. Our wedding ceremony wouldn't have been the same without her and she is worth every penny and then some." - Ashlea & Jacob, West Lakes Golf Club

"Delightful, talented, soulful, professional and a beautiful person. Mahalia and her guitarist were the perfect blend of everything we had hoped for. Mahalia's communication from day one gave us comfort in knowing everything was taken care of." - Martina & Eric, Mount Lofty House

"One of the best parts of our entire wedding was the music thanks to Mahalia" - Cian & Dan, Port Willunga Beach
