Absolutely fantastic. I had Giulia plus drummer and everyone said how fantastic they were. Giulia has great rapport with the audience and has a strong image. All very professional, plenty of variety in the music played and Giulia's voice has a great range and quality. I couldn't be more pleased.

"This is the second year Jose and Giulia have been booked at Lowlands Club. The 'Smooth Summer Sounds lunch-time concert we had at the club in June 2019 was a sell-out. In fact Jose & Giulia were such a hit we booked them again for August 2019. They are both such accomplished and versatile musicians and we have had so many positive comments we will book them again for Summer 2020. I have no hesitation in recommending them as we all had a thoroughly enjoyable time listening to them both play and Giulia sing."

"We have booked Giulia and Jose for our Annual Garden Party and couldn't be happier with them! We could see how great she was on the videos, but she was even better live. Giulia is an amazing singer, with an amazing voice and varied repertoire. They really made the party and all our customers were absolutely in love with her and her voice. We are already planning on getting them back for more events and can't wait to hear them again. Thank you Giulia and Jose for your rapid response, professionalism and commitment with our event, making it such a success!"
