“The music was sensational & the connection & rapport you built with the audience was just amazing, so much fun! You got the whole bar rocking, laughing & singing along - even me, & I never, ever sing in public!! Speaking for myself, I can honestly say that was the best night out I've had for ages - & I go out a LOT!”
