"Coopers Creek vineyard in West Auckland holds jazz Sundays every year from January through to Easter weekend. This involves opening our Cellar Door Garden area to the public, and providing free Music/Jazz. It is extremely popular, and most Sundays we host approximately 150-200 people at our venue.
June Hayes has been part of our line up of performers for several years, and consistently draws a good crowd. June's style really suits our event, and she is very popular, as is evident when we see people up dancing to her lovely summer sounds.
We will most definitely be asking June to come back for our next Summer Jazz Series.
Kitty Richardson, Coopers Creek vineyard
"June was one of our vocal soloists in the NZ Pops Orchestra's Spring Pops concert on 7 September 2014 in the Auckland Town Hall. Her voice is very well suited to Pop, contemporary and jazz music, and the audience loved her singing. Her performance of Leonard Cohen's Halleluja was one of the highlights of our concert. I also congratulate June on her album Journey for the return home . I love the songs and I share June's environmental concerns".

"We recently engaged June Hayes and her group to play at my "big" birthday party at home. This is the second time she has successfully entertained my guests over the years I've known her. During this association, I've travelled to various public venues to hear her sing and have always enjoyed her music, happy disposition, and ability to relate to her audience. Invariably, her choice of songs is totally "in-tune" with each audience and setting. In addition, I've found her to be punctual, reliable, good humored and to display all the characteristics of a truly professional vocalist. As well as a wonderful voice, June has an engaging personality and a deep, practical, concern for her fellow human beings".
"I can happily comment from feedback (I sadly was at another event) that you and your band were truly excellent, professional, a really strong and enjoyable performance that the audience loved and which generated great post-event feedback.

"The June Hayes Band performed at a function we held at our home 10 years ago. When we started to plan for another function this year, June was our first choice. We knew that we wouldn't be disappointed, and we certainly were not. The music was sensational. We have had so many positive comments from our guests. The quality of the performance from all the group was excellent, highlighted by June's beautiful voice. Having live music provides an ambient atmosphere that cannot be achieved otherwise, but the style is not so intrusive that you can't hold a comfortable conversation. We absolutely loved having June and the group at our place again…maybe we won't wait 10 years for the next time".
