I would like to thank yourself and the entire Show Support crew for your support over the course of this year and beyond.
The last 3 months in particular have been extremely busy for us with many successful shows. From live TV, Vivid, indoor, outdoor, early starts, overnighters, large or small shows and many late finishes, your crew have been a valuable part of our delivery and too often unrecognised for your hard work. Rain, hail or shine your crew have consistently been on time, dependable and hard working.
I also feel our team and yours, have developed are great working rapport and familiarity both with our equipment and with each other personally, with some good banter and laughs along the way.
Our Operations Coordinator Alex, has also welcomed your fast and helpful responses to our ever changing bookings.
Thank you again and we look forward to continuing this relationship.
Technical Operations Manager
It is refreshing to deal with a crewing company whose guys turn up on time, are keen, with a good attitude and clearly have a lot of experience.
It has been a pleasure to deal with your company as well.
As we know, communication is the key!
We will be back next year, and will definitely use your company again.
"The Pink Floyd Experience"
Our client was really impressed with the high quality crew Show Support provided for the Georgy Girl bump in to the State Theatre at the end of March.
Another Show Support convert!
Brendan James - Linehaul Supervisor
One of your guys from the bump out at the Domain needs to be congratulated on his tenacity and constant hard work on a very ugly job.
Ugly Job: Under the stage Hauling the Coda multi core cables back through the pipe from FOH. The cables became jammed in the pipe due to someone not watching from FOH.
He did not give up. It was not his fault, he needs to be commended for keeping his cool. Well done Show Support!

The P.A. People
The guys onsite were incredible and knew exactly what they were doing.
They were a HUGE help to us on the day so please can you pass on a massive thank you from everyone at LOUD.
We really appreciated it.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for all your hard work on the Les Miserables load out.
Overnight shifts are not ideal but due to everyone's commitment we got out on time without a hitch.
Thanks again and look forward to working with you again on the next one.
System Sound Pty Ltd
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for your assistance with various projects over the last 6 months but most particularly with our execution of Coca Colas sponsorship of Goodlife. This was a mammoth task for us with the event occurring simultaneously in multiple States and we couldn't have done it without your help.
The staff you provide are consistently on time, qualified, helpful, courteous and do what it takes to get the job done without issue. In particular I would like to thank Jasper who went over and above on the day to ensure that things ran smoothly. I look forward to working with you and your staff in the future.
Ryan Griffin, Activation Manager
We very happily use the services of Show Support when extra crew are required, and especially value being able to contact them at short notice when events change or appear from nowhere.
Their client support and online booking system is excellent and really makes our lives easier. Thanks Show Support.

Illawarra Production Services
Once again, thank you so much for the provision of quality crew around the country - Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth - to assist us with delivering 22 performances of Barbie LIVE The Musical to more than 26,500 patrons!
We will not hesitate in recommending Show Support to other touring companies, and also using your services again in the future.
Just wanted to supply feedback on the terrific crew we were supplied with last Friday for our Peppa Pig tour in Penrith.
At what is undoubtedly one of the most difficult venues in NSW to work in for a number of reasons, our touring crew found themselves up against the clock with the local venue technicians, venue facilities and time, and were absolutely thrilled with the professional assistance received from the four Show Support crew we had booked in.
To quote the show report that we received from the Stage Manager (cc'd);
"Show Support crew that were hired in were FANTASTIC!!! Exceeded expectations. Incredibly helpful and immediately sensed situation and did everything to not only help us in getting show up, but tactfully providing moral support. Touring crew have thanked Show Support crew personally in our own way, but highly recommend some kind of official thankyou from LLT to go to Show Support management. These guys saved our bacon (literally!). Cannot speak highly enough of them!"
As usual, we are 100% happy with the crewing and support received from Show Support, and will continue utilising your services into the future.

Show Support, I write to you and your crew.
I set a task as big as any gig, move and reset of my business in another space.
Wouldn't wish it on anybody. But I would wish them to have the help and enthusiasm your crew gave to The Look.
It was hard and a gruelling slog, done with great spirit.
Thanks to all, and Ben drives a nice ship.

Thanks for the fantastic team you organised for us last week to help lay out the ground cloth projection screen at the opening of the new AAMI Park in Melbourne. The guys we worked with had the required can do attitude and stepped up to the team work aspect of the job with ease. They were all easy to speak with, they understood all instructions and ask questions where required. They quickly gained an understanding of the total task and their individual roles.
We have worked with many other crew support companies (including others in Melbourne) and your crew were by far the best we have ever in counted. I will recommend you and your Show Support crew highly and we look forward to using you again.

Show Support has been a key partner in helping Dimension 5 grow our business in a very competitive industry. We have used Show Support in every major Australian city, and the standard of the crew supplied to us has always been high. When we have needed crew at the last minute, the Show Support office has bent over backwards for us, and they have always come through, at all times of the day and night. It gives us a lot of confidence to know that we have a reliable source of quality technical crew, and we look forward to working with Show Support to further expand our operations in the future.

Just a quick email to say, you were absolutely right and I was a fool to use XXXXX.
They were truly awful. Completely unmotivated and a very scruffy bunch at best.
I will most definitely be using you in the future wherever I go! I guess I can officially say that I have lived and learnt...the hard way.
Please pass on my thanks to all your crew who worked on the Ross Noble Tour in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. They were fantastic.
Thanks for the heads up, next time I'll listen a little closer.
The guys at Show Support are amazing.
Their staff are a pleasure to deal with and contactable around the clock. The crew are hardworking and always on time. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Show Support!
Show Support have always been our crewing company of choice. Prompt service, great crew, and a "nothing too difficult" attitude gives us great peace of mind when it comes to labour on Rizer gigs!
I would really like to thank you for the service that you extended to Alex at the Sheraton last weekend. I understand he gave you a bit of a run around and whilst he was also on the receiving end of this (from the hotel), your ability to adjust and be flexible was really appreciated. Additionally, the guys you sent down to us were very professional and it was a pleasure to deal with them.
I look forward to working with you and forming a close relationship with your organisation.
Please feel free to contact me should I be in a position to be of assistance to you or your organisation.
I have to write and say thanks for the crew which you supplied at short notice in Brisbane last week. I contacted the office at around 9.00pm on Tuesday night requiring crew for an 08.00am start on Wednesday morning and despite the short notice the 3 crew turned up on time, in uniform, with tools and a great attitude. To make sure that everything got off to a good start your crew chief Steven Voight also came to site and worked for free for around an hour before heading off to check on another job.
The call involved setting up display stands and Brisbane was the last stop on a national tour so I had a lot of chances to learn how to setup the displays quickly and efficiently. I couldn't believe my eyes when the show support crew setup the stands at least three times quicker than I had been able to do in other states.
The crew had obviously been thinking about how to make my life even easier for bump out as they arrived armed with their own ladder, packing tape, industrial cling wrap and 3 dollies. Needless to say this was above and beyond the call of duty but when I expressed my thanks I was told "that's what Show Support do, we are here to help".
Please pass my thanks on to Buddy, Steve, Mick, Steve and Babs, they made Kojo look great in front of our client and I look forward to working with Show Support again soon.
Luke Hutchins, Technical Director
I highly recommend Show Support crew to any one who is after a hard working crewing agency that provides the exact crew for every type of job. They present well, work well as part of our team and are on time for each call. The crew are always friendly and out going and ready to assist where ever possible.
We have had a long standing relationship with Dave and his crew and will continue to do so.
Daniel Monro, Production Manager
Lots of Watts
Just wanted to say a big thank you to your guys for all their hard work on this years Australia Day job out at Cockle Bay. It was challenging job, as it was always going to be, however the boys did not whinge, they just stepped it up a couple of gears and got the job done. It is for this reason that I chose Show Support and I am pleased that you delivered.
Please pass on my thanks to everyone!
Addam Crawford, TECHNICK
I would like to pass on my thanks to all of the crew who worked on the BP DARC Conference on Hamilton Island. They were all fantastic! Their enthusiasm and willingness to help made our job so much easier for the week. Very much appreciated.
Your guys are always great and the overall service of Show Support is spot on every time. I recommend you to everyone!
