“Your concert for this year’s Thaxted Festival was a great success. It came across clearly that you all very much enjoyed performing and the audience felt they were joining in the fun. The programme was very varied, both classics and jazz, in your skillful arrangements. We also admired the variety of timbres and dynamics which you produced as you deployed your extensive repertoire of mutes – not to mention the pink trombones! Well done!” – Gareth Stainer, Artistic Director: Thaxted Festival

Greatly enjoyed your concert last night at St James’ Daisy Hill – a wide range of music beautifully played. I was particularly impressed by the arrangements written by members of the quartet. Very many thanks for an inspiring evening. – Phillip Heathcote, Audience Member
