Talia was booked to perform at a Christmas party for 100 older people. She is an excellent entertainer. Her voice is fantastic. She was very flexible, altering her song choices to fit in with the audience. We received lots of positive feedback from the audience. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I first saw DSBB at the Old Queen's Head last year. They were amazing! Not a hip was left unshook. We danced all evening and I have made a point to see them at every opportunity since.

Great night at The Water Rats – the band was amazing and lots of fun; so full of energy, the audience couldn't wait to get up and dance. Playing a good mix of classics and well known songs, as well as contemporary sounds, Duke Street is the must see band for anyone who appreciates good jazz. Great cover of Snarky Puppy by the way guys.
