    Superb from Allan, 13/05/13
    Nigel completely at home with classical ,jazz, and a brilliant showman backed by three great musicians. Did not need banks of amplifiers to deliver great music for the whole concert

    Superb Evening from Anne & Brian Davey, 08/05/13
    First class musicians, wonderful combination of music. The rapport between Nigel and the other musicians was extremely entertaining. What marvelous talent! We didnt want the evening to end and would certainly attend more of Nigels concerts. Previously we have only been to Nigels classical concerts and thoroughly enjoyed them, but this was an unusual programme, in a relaxed atmosphere, with an enthusiatic audience - brilliant!!!

    Unforgetable performance from Andrew & Linda Crossland, 08/05/13
    He makes his fiddle sing. The Fats Waller numbers were astonishing and his band were brilliant. We could have heard more of them in solo.
