Matt played at our son's 21st. He is a fantastic musician and so nice to deal with. He and his colleagues turned up in good time, dressed beautifully in black tie, judged the mood perfectly and fitted in so well with the situation. Matt is a delight to deal with and we would definitely recommend him and use him again.

Matt and Nigel played at our cigar and rum tasting during the Rye Jazz Festival last year. Amazing!! Their music filled the outdoor space and added perfectly to the atmosphere of relaxed, Latin fun that we hoped for. Matt played my favourite "Girl from Ipanema"...which can be so cheesy, but he played with sensitivity and depth of feeling. A real goosebump moment! I cannot recommend these musicians highly enough.
