"Dear Peter and Susie, 
So many thanks for all your work and in helping make the Mad Hatters Ball a wonderful success. Matt Hetherington and Beyond Belief were sensational. It has been a pleasure being involved with such a professional group of people and I hope we can work together again next year." 
Yours sincerely,

Re: Matt Hetherington
"Dear Matt, Thanks for agreeing to play at the Rabobank Conference on Saturday 15th February. The night was an enormous success for the bank, and for me as producer of the event. And one of the main reasons the evening was such a success was the fantastic show that you and your band gave us. Your choice of material was perfect for the evening, the quality of the band and the vocals was excellent and the entertainment factor was sensational. Thank you for putting on a knock-out, energetic and dynamic show. The audience loved it. The other thing I wanted to say was that it was a pleasure to deal with you and the band. You were all extremely pleasant and professional and I really appreciated that. At the end of the evening at least 10 women asked to be introduced to you. The worrying thing is that one of them was my wife! With thanks." 
Ken Moffat

A Q & A with Matt Hetherington

Today we chat with Matt Hetherington star of the Australian Theatre and Live Music Stage. Matt is widely regarded as the best live performer in the country.

Q Why live entertainment?

A I grew up in a live music environment. My dad is a jazz musician and I spent a greater portion of my early years touring the country watching his shows.

Q First gig?

A I began as a drummer and spent the first few years of my live music career at the back of the band. I came out front for a couple of songs and never went back!!!!

Q Matt Hetherington & Beyond Belief beginnings

A We started at the Armadale Hotel in Melbourne and went on to have legendary residencies at the Grainstore in the city and Frostbites in Chapel St. Swinging on a rope from the ceiling and theme nights as the Village People were common occurrences. It always has to be fun.

Q Career highlight?

A When we opened Happy Days the arena musical I got to sing in front of 35,000 at Sydney’s Superdome. Surrounded by 45 dancers and a 15 piece band, that was a huge experience.

Singing with mate Hugh Jackman will always be a highlight. He has such amazing stage presence.

Q Influences?

A I grew up fascinated by Sammy Davis Jnr. Versatility is one my great strengths and I do everything I can to make sure everyone seeing the show has a great night.

Q You always look like you are having the time of your life. How do you manage to have so much energy?

A I love performing in front of a live audience. My years as a theatre performer have taught me that you have to pour your heart and soul into the performance. The idea of making an audience member forget their troubles and be taken in by my performance is what drives me.
