I think Sarah is one of Australia's premier talents . . . her talent is immense and she is also one of the most professional people I have ever come across."

JOHN FOREMAN (Music Director, Good Morning Australia & Australian Idol)
Thank you for your performances during our AFL Official Match Day Functions at the MCG. Your music always provides a lovely atmosphere during the events and many of our guests make comments on how fantastic your voice is! Your style and song choice fits in perfectly with the ambience of the evenings and contributes to the success of each night. The way you went from a jazz classic and then got them up dancing with the pop stuff. Great! Thank you once again."

Beatle George Harrison, in Melbourne for the 1999 Formula 1 Grand Prix, thanked Sarah and her band when they performed his song "Something". He was seen to be teetering back in his chair, watching Sarah as she performed the song. He was dining with motorcycle champion and good friend Barry Sheen. During the band break Harrison chatted to Sarah and the band with great enthusiam, during which he asked if they'd be back doing the same gig at the end of Grand Prix day. Sarah recalls the interaction with great fondness and excitement, and considers it to be a career highlight!

Are you guys on again tomorrow night? Barry and I will come back with others."

Sarah Maclaine brings classic jazz into the modern world with her beautiful voice. She has the expression of a singer from the past but adds her "today" twist. She is a reminder of the good ole days, with an outstanding presence of being in the now. You only need to see her once to be hooked."

Sarah was recently asked by Liberty Devitto (Billy Joel's drummer of 32 years) to record one of his songs.

In 2004 Singer Simon LeBon brought his band Duran Duran in to see Sarah after their Melbourne concert. Upon strolling into The Deco Bar at Melbourne's Grand Hyatt Hotel, he introduced himself and went to get the rest of the band. They were still seated in front of Sarah and her pianist Steve Paix four hours later, requesting song after song.
