Reviews

From customers:

The M, 1 year ago

Matt Wallis, accompanying himself on guitar and keyboards. Material from Ricky Nelson, Elvis, Buddy Holly and Status Quo are sure fire winners in club land, and Wallis has an outstanding voice, big and strong, which suits such songs perfectly. The Stage Magazine
