Giulia and the Lizards' Reviews

Absolutely fantastic! I booked Giulia and the Lizards as a duo to play at my 60th birthday party and I couldn't have asked for better. Everyone had a great time dancing the evening away and so many people asked where I found such a brilliant band! Jose was really helpful throughout the whole run up to the party and keen to make sure they got the music right for me, which they did. The only - unavoidable - disappointment was that Giulia herself was ill and unable to be there - but Jose arranged a couple of brilliant musicians as substitutes who did a fantastic job- and I ended up with a trio! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and am just looking for an excuse to book them again - and a chance to hear Giulia's amazing voice.

Giulia and the band were amazing! Had everyone up and dancing for 2 hours with only a short break. We had lots of positive feedback - lots of people said they were the best band they had ever seen at an event. Great music and singing that made our party a great success - thank you so much!

Giulia and the lizards were fantastic - we and our wedding guests really enjoyed them, they have an amazing range of music. Our only regret was that our venue had a live music curfew so we couldn't have them for longer! Thanks and hope to see you again some time!

We booked guilia and the lizards for our festive cocktail house party and we had the best night ever! We worked with the band before the event to discuss timings, prices and set lists and worked out an amazing song list and logistics for the night! I can’t tell how how helpful the band were. When you’re having an event you want everything to run smoothly and I always felt so reassured by the band. They set up in our flat and made sure to check on volume, for the neighbours. The vibe they created was absolutely immense! People were dancing and losing themselves in the music, and the chants for ONE MORE SONG spoke for themselves! It was such a blast. The band are so easy to work with and prices were so reasonable. These are great great musicians who will take your party to the next level. Would totally recommend Gill and Tom x x

Jose was an absolute pleasure to deal with and the band performed fantastically. Everybody at our event said how impressed they were with the professionalism of the band, many saying the band was the high-light of the evening and would book the band themselves for weddings, etc! We asked the band to play a few requests and picked a range of songs from their current repertoire, which was a great mix of songs for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for being sensitive to the occasion - it was a charity event commemorating what would have been my late Father's birthday - and this was something very much considered. The band are extremely dynamic and although the listed singer could not attend the date of our event, singer Guilia is incredible and we couldn't have been happier! We'd love to invite the band back to any future celebrations with hold. 100% recommend these fantastic musicians for any occasion. HUGE THANKS and all the best, Nicola & Family
