Hi Folks, Big thanks once again for a great debut performance for + Brass, as you will have seen the customer was very happy :) They have also sent through some of the photos the photographer took - I’ve included a couple here. Might be able to use on website if I can get permission. Hope you’re all enjoying the continental heat :) Cheers Carl

I have had the pleasure of performing with Ashley in a number of different genres. He is a very flexible musician who can adapt to different styles very easily and whether it be performing, writing or directing he is at the top of his game. I wholeheartedly recommend Ashley for any musical projects. Oh, and he’s a really nice chap with it too !

Ashley plays trumpet and flugelhorn in my band Positive Brassitude, where his versatility and musicianship are much appreciated. He is a great player, extremely professional, and would not hesitate to recommend him for any type of brass project or performance.
