The children at Gymea Community Preschool have just been treated to the most wonderful adventure, sailing across the seas through song, dance and story telling. Captain Bandanna and Splash thoroughly captivated our children and when we asked them what they liked about the show their answers centred around the catchy, easily remembered songs, the accompanying movement and dance, and using their imagination to be animals, or pretending they were on a boat or just to believe in mermaids! Thankyou for your wonderful brand of entertainment and for all the work you do behind the scenes to make your show so enjoyable. The children haven’t stopped listening to and singing with your CD in the weeks after the show.

Thanks for a great performance.  Hornsby & Pennant Hills libraries were incredibly impressed with the energetic and professional show.  The kids loved every minute of it.  I would definitely recommend the show to anyone wanting to entertain a group of young kids.  The girls in the performance had the kids in the palms of their hands and they were exhausted by the end of the show.  The singing, dancing and storytelling kept them enthralled.

Captain Bandanna performed two shows daily at Bonnyrigg Plaza during the 2010 January School Holidays. We certainly would not hesitate in having them return to the Plaza in the future! The Captain Bandanna show was interactive, educational, and thought provoking for all children involved. The team was extremely professional and efficient when setting up and delivered the show with the upmost enthusiasm! The children also responded really well to the roaming Wave character, he was a definitely worthwhile addition to the show!

We organised a staff children's christmas party for around 140 kids, we asked Captain Bandanna if they would adjust their performance to add in more christmas elements. Before the day I explained that they would be on just before santa turned up to hand out the presents. Captain Bandanna and Co changed their routine and made it a routine about trying to find Santa which fit in really well with our plans for the day. It was perfect. They sang some songs and danced about finding santa and just as they finished off a song and got all the kids to yell out for santa, he arrived. The performance from Captain Bandanna and Co was excellent. They had the whole crowd of kids and parents bobbing their heads and dancing to their music. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for children's entertainment. I have had many many comments on how fantastic the group was from parents who have been to the Wiggles and Hi Five and the parents said that Captain Bandanna and Co had the kids more entertained and involved. The performers were also very friendly and professional. We will definitely be looking into booking them for future children's parties.

Dear Captain Bandanna and Splash the Mermaid,

Thank you so much for your wonderful performance at the National Maritime Museum of Pirate Island Musical Adventure. We were very keen to finish our Under 5s Mini Mariners program for the year with a fun and captivating performance and you lived up to all of our expectations. It was wonderful to have such a large attendance (there were 185 in total) and to see all of the children and families joining in - singing and dancing for the entirety of the 45 minute performance. We have received only extremely positive feedback from everyone who attended and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Firstly I would like to say thank for the wonderful shows you recently performed at Rockdale Plaza.  . 

Your shows were positively engaging, educational and vibrant.  What captured me mostly, and I believe by many of our customers, was the beautiful music and the journey of discovery and imagination. We received wonderful and positive feedback from many happy children and their parents.  My children have been extremely delighted by your music and happily sing-a-long, as they have quickly picked up the lyrics to your fabulous music. There isn’t anything else like “Rumble in the Jungle”.....

As both a happy marketing manager and parent – thank you so much for bringing back the colours of imagination, into children’s entertainment.

I would not hesitate in recommending your shows to other centres and I look forward to working with again someday.

Ahoy & best wishes,

A couple of weeks ago I took my kids (2 ½ and 5) to the entrance. We were entertained by Captain Bandanna and Splash. The kids enjoyed it. At the end of the show, they said that CD’s were for sale. I did not buy one as i thought the kids enjoyed it but were not really taken by it. Since that time I have heard nothing but little song snippets from that show. “one side the other side”, “I am a cowboy” and “Africa”. My husband was not with us at the time and has been asking me where these songs are coming from. It was to my delight that I have since found the website and yes I have just purchased the CD.

Thankyou for having such an impact on my kids and bringing such long lasting enjoyment to them.




Client: Randwick Playgroup

Date: May 2008

Randwick Playgroup hired Captain Bandanna & Co to provide entertainment for their May event. They certainly made a “splash” with their performance, capturing the kids’ attention from start to finish. Their characters & songs were appealing to playgroupers and carers alike, both enjoying the direct interaction the show offered.

The event was a success as there was positive feedback on the day and weeks after the performance. Having seen many kids shows over the past 4 years it is certainly one of the best ones we’ve seen as It’s rare to see kids in that age bracket  mesmerised throughout the entire performance.

Also impressive was the girls’ professionalism in choosing the best area to hold the show, promptly setting up, and incorporating striking and varied props. It reflects an eagerness to give value-plus to the audience. We look forward to having them back at Randwick Playgroup. Thanks again Captain Bandanna.

A truly interactive show where the children and staff were involved from the first minute. Lots of catchy new songs with actions. It is now three weeks since Captain Bandanna and Splash visited our Preschool and everyday we still hear someone "making a wish", "rumbling in the jungle" or requesting the CD to be played. A very professional performance by two creative people who obviously love working with children and provided a wonderful value for money show

Client: Freehills Law Firm 'Kids At Work' Day Christmas Party

Date:  21 December 2007

Freehills used Captain Bandanna for our annual “Kids at Work Day” prior to Christmas.  Not only do they have a great website but they were really professional right from the word go.  From calling me straight back when I made an enquiry as to availability to keeping in touch before they were due to come in.  On the day the kids had a ball.  The Bandanna team set up really quickly, and entertained the kids really well.  There’s plenty of colour and they kept the kids really engaged by singing lots of different songs. The kids were glued, and there was plenty of audience participation to keep them interested.  I would definitely recommend the Captain Bandanna team to others.

Client: Starlight Express Room - Sydney Children's Hospital

Captain Bandanna and her mermaid friend Splash landed at the Randwick Starlight Express Room, at the Sydney Children's Hospital and took the children on an adventurous journey to a world of imagination! Not only did they sing their catchy songs but they danced, told stories and interacted brilliantly with all the children in the room. There were plenty of opportunities for the children to get involved in the show, from shaking pom poms, rowing imaginary boats, singing, to making wishes of their own! The children were definitely drawn into the show, as they were all up dancing and joining along the whole way through! The set and costumes were colourful and fun and the show flowed nicely, which kept the kids captivated throughout. As a Captain Starlight, for the Starlight Children's Foundation, we interact with children on a daily basis and often have to come up with new fun and exciting activities for the kids to do, especially the long term patients. Captain Bandanna certainly provided a fun-filled morning, full of adventure and surprise, which lifted the spirits of all involved. Thank you Captain Bandanna and we hope to see you again soon.

Yours Truely

Captain Bandanna presented a kaleidoscope of bright, fun filled entertainment, that had “big kids” and little kids dancing and singing through a wondrous adventure as they travelled the world. The children were totally captivated by Captain Bandanna’s inexhaustible energy, exuberance, enthusiasm and imagination.


The best testament to a great time had, is in the observation of former audience members arriving early for the next scheduled presentation to nab a good place for a repeat performance.


Captain Bandanna’s professionalism and pride in their work, is reflected in every aspect of their presentation.

The girls were immensely energetic, professional and talented and they engaged beautifully with the large audience. As the venue was a library it was pleasing to note the inclusion of an original felt board story, which had the children riveted.
There was much positive feedback from parents and carers and I'd have no hesitation in inviting Captain Bandanna and Splash back to Waverley Library for a repeat performance.

Captain Bandanna & Co were fantastic. They cleverly mix fun and education in one highly energetic stimulating show. Their catchy songs had all of the children(and some adults) up dancing and singing and the interaction with the children had them involved throughout the entire performance. They're enthusiasm and professionalism were exceptional and we look forward to having them back at AMF Randwick Bowl.

Client: Moriah Randwick Preschool

Thank you Captain Bandanna and Co for visiting our Moriah Randwick Preschool! The children and staff were so engaged with your educational music. You had clear and appropriate instructions for the children to follow and the music is so catchy that we could all sing to your songs and dance to the music. Your music covers so many areas of the children interests, starting with emotions all the way to fun, excitement and imagination.

Your unique felt board story time was appropriate for the ages of our children. They were so excited to participate in the actions and the words and the children are still talking about the character Wobbles The Witch from the story!

The energy of the performers and your gentle manor with the children will take you a long way.

We love listening to your CD and we cant wait to have you visit our Preschool again

Thank you for giving us such an entertaining memorable show.

Dear Captain Bandanna   I have a 4 year old daughter Noa, who usually finds dancing and running really hard work.  But she recieved your CD as a gift and I tell you we are trying to get her to have her afternoon nap and all she says is no way I am dancing to Captain Bandanna.  ps she gets the whole family dancing.   Love Joanne 


"Captain Bandanna & Co performed at my daughter Arin and her friend Ariel's 4th birthday party recently.  The Captain & Splash are brilliant entertainers!  Arin can be quite shy in a party situation and Ariel had never seen Captain Bandanna perform before.    In no time at all they had engaged both Arin & Ariel and had captured the attention of all their friends, not to mention the parents!  The music, the visuals and the props are all fabulous and the interaction with the children continues throughout the show.  The birthday children felt really special and the entire show was pitched at just the right level.

Captain Bandanna & Co are true professionals.  They were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.  They made every effort to accommodate our needs and made sure that Arin and Ariel had the best party ever.  They are still talking about it!"


I would like to join Kim and say how much Ariel had enjoyed his party. I was a bit nervous since last year the entertainment we had planned was not so successful, but this year it was beyond anything we could have expected. A lot of the parents came to me after the party and told me they bought the CD and that their kids love it and that they repeatedly listen to it at home. For me that is the best testimonial of the perfect birthday party. Thank you very much!


Dear Sharon,

We wanted to write you a note to let you know how thrilled we were to have Capt Bandana and Co. perform at Sacha’s Birthday party. Your enthusiasm and passion for the children and the music is unsurpassable! The children were up and dancing straight away and loved every minute of it. You have a very special rapport that holds their attention and would be great with any age. Sacha loves the songs and the Capt. Bandana CD has not left the player in weeks! I will be telling everyone I know about the wonderful the Capt Bandanna!

Thanks again
