Testimonials from venue management for our long running performance residencies.

Absolute excellent live music month by month. Performances and promotion have been top-notch. Always great feedback from members and guests � who�ve had a great time. We�ve had some of the best stomping dancefloors we�ve witnessed at our club.

Kate Bispham � Corporate Events Manager, Chinawhite (Piccadilly Circus)

Live Music at its best, we�ve had everyone from Elvis Costello to David Gray perform here, your shows have been some of the best we�ve had. Lots of fabulous songs, many of my favourites � especially the funky, rock n roll classics � love the Beatles and James Brown tracks best. People grooving non-stop � really can�t ask for more! It�s been an amazing two years of shows for every kind of event imaginable. Keep up the good work.

Nova Buchan � Events Manager, Cobden Club (Notting Hill)

You packed out the restaurant, we managed to fit everybody in there in the end, wasn�t easy. Excellent performance, you had everyone singing and dancing, including me. Sorry we had to stop, were running way over our licence closing time. Couldn�t stop the party in full flow. All the musicians were professional and fun to work with � our staff loved it. Think it�s now the talk of Mayfair, had a lot of interest from our restaurants in the area. Let�s do it again.

Jason, General Manager, Francos (Mayfair)

Well done for your sell-out concert. The ground floor and balcony were pretty full of happy faces. Great show, very fun and up-tempo � the way we like it. One of the best bands we�ve had here for engaging the crowd with a good ol�party vibe. Great choice of tunes, think you managed to cover every genre possible.

Brian Bradley � General Manager, Pigalle (Piccadilly Circus)

Thank you for high-spirited and rocking energy on stage. You and your band�s playing at our staff party was a show-stopper. What a night, lots of super feedback from all our staff. Your residency at the Met bar has been a real success, good crowds and great music.
