Even with 34 trophies to give away, there was still ample time to showcase local Australian entertainers!
The night opened with Sydney based singer-songwriter Jade Steg serenading guests upon arrival with classical melodies on the grand piano. As guests took their seats, Abi Morgan took to the stage to kick of the show with her cover of Katy Perry's hit song 'Firework'. As the waitstaff were serving up dinner, MiSa Jazz were serving up an exquisite showcase of jazz soundscapes on the guitar. While guests devoured dessert, local artist Grace Fuller took to the stage, showcasing her talent on the guitar and vocals. To close the show, 3 Way Split, a three-piece cover band, got guests up out of their chairs with renditions of both new chart-topping hits and classic well-known favourites.
Back for a second year in a row, Master of Ceremonies Nathan Cassar made a triumphant return to the Event Awards stage, re-connecting with the audience for a personalised MC experience that made the 2023 Awards truly memorable.
