Absolutely brilliant! Consummate musicians. Couldn't get a higher standard (and we have musicians in the family!!). Pleasant, easy going and just the right sort of vibe. They even helped our children prepare a song.....

We saw Honeysuckle Jazz play at the Moonshine Club. They are extremely accomplished musicians and they created a wonderful atmosphere for the evening. Can't recommend them highly enough!"
