Covid …

You might remember us from Camille’s party in 2019? That night was one of the best of our lives and you called the dances so well – we’d very much like to recreate it for our wedding reception, with a little less bush and a little more wedding 🙂 Fingers crossed restrictions get rolled back!  Cecily 14th March 2021

School Fundraiser

We reached out to Tim and Maggie to be the live entertainment for our School Bonanza and can not rate them highly enough! Extremely professional, friendly, great with the kids and very flexible when our run sheet went a bit off schedule! You can tell they love what they do.
Their music and energy added a fantastic atmosphere to the day and we received so many positive comments about how great the music was – the dancefloor was full for the whole event!
We are already arranging for them to come back for our Welcome BBQ in 2020 and looking forward to another great school event! Kelly Malloy St Francis Xavier School Bonanza Aug 2019

Corporate / Conference

 Badminton Australia booked “Bushland Boogie” to play at the Star Casino, for a Gala Dinner for 850 people, from 27 countries, for the prestigious Sudirman Cup – The World Mixed Badminton Team Championships event held every 2 years.  The band was outstanding. Their versatility, cooperation and contribution to the evening resulted in many comments as ‘best ever’ dinner. I can’t recommend them more highly for their unique Australian style music presentation and overall music versatility. We loved them!!!  John Purnell Badminton Australia May 2017

We booked Bushland Boogie Bush Band for a corporate client – they played a diverse range of music throughout the night – specifically for the client and their international guests. It was very well received, and they looked great in their authentic outfits, and sounded even better! A delight to work with, and we look forward to booking them again in the future.  Marg Booth Managing Director Great Expectation Speakers and Trainers Oct 2018

Everyone had a great night, and you were a pleasure to work with!

I was wondering if you could pass on my thanks to Bushland Boogie for their performance at the Queensland Training Awards at BCEC on Friday night!  They were just wonderful and really suited the evening. Such a pleasure to deal with too – absolutely lovely people. Thank you again. Cheers Lauren

Dear Maggie, Thank you to Bushland Boogie Bush Band for performing at our Biloela campsite during Cycle Queensland this year.  The riders had a wonderful time “dancing the square” so to speak and the vollies seemed to have a great time too (me included). Again, on behalf of Bicycle Queensland, thank you. Jackie Franklin – Bicycle Queensland

Our staff had a fantastic evening and you and Tim did an amazing job with calling, playing and singing! I’ve got itchy feet for another dance night!   Maureen – Inclusion Plus 08 /16

I would truly like to thank Bushland Boogie Bush Band for opening our Beautiful Bloomin Blackbutt Festival. What a great night!  Maggie was a great motivator and was even able to get those people Bush Dancing that I did not think possible.  I have no hesitation in recommending Bushland Boogie and hope to have them back soon. A Band not to miss.    Willo Riley  6th Sept 2015

50th Birthday

Community Living

I would like to thank you all for singing and dancing the night away with us last Friday night. We were a bit nervous about letting a strange band party with us at first, but when you arrived you felt like part of the family! Thank you for your kind and friendly manner, and for having such a great sense of humour! We honestly could not have planned a better night, or picked a better mix of songs to dance to. We have a community of people with varying interests and capacities, however the way you celebrated with us was accessible for all. Remember I had to ask you to stop playing background music while you packed up so people would stop dancing and go home!

Our community is still buzzing with enthusiasm days later, and we hope to see you again in the future. Best Wishes!  Katie Biggs Social Worker 24th June 2015

Over 50’s Resorts and Retirement Villages

Hi Maggie, Tim and Bob, Thanks again for your fabulous music and calling at my sister, Cathy’s birthday in Logan Village. We had a fabulous time dancing to your brilliant music – music that you just couldn’t not dance to! I am so delighted to know that you are spreading the joy of folk dance especially to young people. The way you included our kids was just delightful. cheers, Sheree  July 2017

Thanks for helping make my  birthday party a huge success! The way you involved all the party goers whether they were 3 or 70 was wonderful. We  would recommend you to anyone who just wants to have fun!                                Bless you,  Darryl Jacobsen 28/10/13

Church Bush Dances

Chancellor Park Community Church absolutely loved having the Bushland Boogie Band at their Bush Dance. The Band had us up and dancing from the very start till the very end. It was wonderful to see old and young having such a great time together. Thanks so much to the wonderful band. They are so talented and such lovely people. Look forward to hosting another Bush Dance in the future. Can’t wait.  Linda Cornell Sept 2014

Fantastic!  A+!  We had so many comments on your great band and how everyone could be a part of the dance from toddlers to seniors and the volume was perfect. Please book us in for next year on the Sunday the 12th October 2014. Kind regards  Jenny Bradford  United Church Conference Bush Dance 22nd Oct 2013

 You were fantastic!  Everyone’s raving about you!  Most people hadn’t been to a Bush Dance before, and you made it easy.      Lea Fitzpatrick   Trinity Lutheran College June 2017

Bushland Boogie played at our Bush Dance last Friday night and our team were overjoyed at the ease with which our community engaged with each other, all because of the encouragement and great musicality of Maggie, Tim and Bob. The event was a huge success and I attribute this to the warmth that came from having a great live Band.  Without hesitation, I would recommend Bushland Boogie to anyone and we have already decided to invite them back next year! Thank you Bushland Boogie for making it a stress-free event!   Cath K Coolum Beach Christian College   23rd Sept 2013

Wedding Bush Dances

Hi Maggie

Sorry it’s taken so long, but just wanted to say what a brilliant job you did at our wedding on March 23rd! Thank you so much! I was absolutely exhausted by the end of it so I probably wasn’t able to express our thanks properly but we really enjoyed it – as indeed did everyone! So many people commented on what a fantastic evening it was and how brilliant the band were. Many thanks for keeping us all up and dancing despite the heat and exhaustion! You did an amazing job!     All the very best ,

                                                          Vicky and Paul x  14th April 2013

Dear Maggie In the words of ABBA: “thank you for the music”. You three are superb. I’ve had so many positive comments (a number of singles commented that when they get married, they are going to hire you guys!), and I’ll certainly be singing your praises.
 I loved the atmosphere at the reception that Bushland Boogie created. The dancing was exactly what we were after, and Geoff and I had an absolute blast. What a great way to see almost all of our guests on the night: on the dancefloor!

 Thank you so much again, and I do indeed hope our paths will cross again.
  Kellie Wilson Sept 2011
