Peter Duncan - Events Producer
Having worked in the Entertainment industry for the last 28 years and have been at Channel 9 for 20 of those years, working with all the other TV networks, Film, Commercial production and Theatre, in particular Events.
I met and worked with Anthony Parisella at a Lillian Frank fundraiser at the Grand Hyatt some years ago. As a producer, I needed the band to work within tight time frames and as always ‘entertain’ the guest’s with a music repertoire that suited the ‘theme’ of the night, this Anthony did with aplomb!!!!!! I have since worked with him on numerous occasions without regret
Safe to say, anything you require he fits within parameters, costs, logistics, running sheet time frames and is Sooooo!!! Easy to communicate with. His band’s musical expertise is second to none, with all band members giving their 100% at all times, entertaining and colourful. This can always be complimented by additional costumes to suit the Theme with choreographed dance support.
I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Thanks Anthony for your extra hard work "and all those meetings" in helping us pull together the Brazilian floorshow entertainmemnt for our Night in Rio ball. Your solo performance and work with the Brazilian dancers created the perfect look & sound for our specialty Dinner Show and then the Anthony Parisella & The Wiseguys pepped up the pace brilliantly and filled the dance floor with would be Rio revellers. We were thrilled with the perfect mix of Latin & Top 40 that you offered, and we look forward to working with you all again.
All the best Anthony,

I had great success with the band Anthony & the Wise Guys. They are just fantastic and well worth exploring if you are looking for a five to seven-piece band. They can pretty much do anything you want and they are highly entertaining. So, if you are interested jump onto their website (www.anthonyswiseguys.com) and get the details. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Margherita DiBari - Wedding
When organsing our wedding, the music aspect was important for both my husband and I. Having a musical background myself I knew I wanted a band to give the day the most impact. I went along to watch the Wise Guys and they were fantastic. All accomplished muscisians, they really knew how to make great music.
We were able to choose what piece band we wanted and whether we wanted them to MC. We were so impressed we chose to have a 6 piece band with Anthony as the MC.
Everybody at the wedding commented how much they enjoyed the band and how well the MC did, lots of laughs and everyone got up and boogied. I highly reccommend the Wise Guys and they will ensure that evryone has a great night, including the bride and groom!!!!
Thanks Wise Guys

Anthony your performance at the II World Song Festival-Pueto Rico, was energetic and the song was really
groovy and funky. You're a great performer and you had the ten thousand strong audience up off their seats.
We look forward to another great performance in the III World Song Festival soon to be announced.
Keep up the good work.

We had the pleasure of having Anthony perform here for a Latin show case with other singers using a live band who tour with some of the worlds biggest latin artists. He is a great performer, showman and very professional to work with.
HANGING ROCK WINERY FESTIVAL
I'd like to personally thank Anthony & The WiseGuys for an outstanding performance at our annual Hanging Rock Winery Festival. Anthony's Wise Guys played for us on 2 full days, and all the while kept the audience thoroughly entertained. Whilst everyone was enjoying the music, he also took the initiative to promote the wine and other goods sold on the day.
Our guests could not help themselves but to get up and dance. They were thoroughly engaged, asking for requests and wanting more. We received great feedback from the guests and retailers and stated that they were extremely impressed with the band.
Thanks to Anthony and his band of WiseGuys for an outstanding 2 days, we really appreciate your dedication and professionalism.

JOHNSTON STREET FESTIVAL
I am writing to thank you for your involvement with the Johnston St Spanish Festival last weekend.
Your role, as a musician and performer, was central to the success of the weekend. After all, what is a fiesta without any entertainment?
The crowd really came alive during your two performances. Latin music is developing a very strong following here in Melbourne, and given the crowds reaction to your songs, its clear your band is encouraging our community's Latin obsession.
You certainly helped to teach Melbournians how to have a good time.
Johnston St Hispanic Fiesta 2007
Simonds Homes hired Anthony & the Wise Guys for our annual Christmas party at the Grand Hyatt, Melbourne.
The band were extremely entertaining, playing a variety of music genres from jazz to pop to latin.
The front man, Anthony Parisella, kept the audience dancing and applauding. The Wise Guys are extremely organised, professional and well presented. I would not hesitate to recommend and book them again.
Thanks for a great night,
Simonds Homes | Special Projects Manager
