Sharon and George performed a wonderful set at Bull Rodizio Bar on Friday 20th July 2018. It was a really lovely atmosphere and our customers enjoyed a fab evening of Jazz with George on the piano and Sharon’s amazing vocals. Bravo! Tracey Wilsmore - Bull Rodizio

Sharon sang at our wedding and we were very happy that we found her, as her voice is strong and powerful, she sounds amazing and is very professional and approachable. Pleasure to deal with and to listen to! Our guests were wonderfully entertained and were very complimentary about the singer and the band.
