" Shama and her band deliver more than just a show – the clarity of vocals and passion in their performance left both us and the audience wanting more. The stand out highlight of Bollywood Fever 2015 was having Shama and her band 'wow' those present, set against the perfect backdrop of Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf in the heartland of London's cultural district South Bank. Polite professionalism, whilst being able to perform to an expectant audience is a rare commodity in the entertainment industry, however Shama and her band achieve this in abundance. "

Mark Sarfo-Kantanka, Bollywood Fever Film Festival, May 2015

" Once again you guys were amazing at the KMK Mehfil Night on 25th April, one of the most popular event organised by Kutch Madhaapar Karyalaya. Everyone loved it! Lots of compliments from the audience. Very talented group of musicians & singers. Fantastic job of getting everyone singing along. Cannot thank you enough. What I like most about you Shama is that you are very easy to approach & you understand what we want and we cannot wait for you to perform again for us!! "

Shanta Siani, KMK Association London, April 2015

" Shama and her band were exceptional in making my wedding reception a night many of us will never forget.Being passionate about live music, I was adamant that the evening’s entertainment had to centre around a band and I was not left disappointed. The music was exceptional, diverse and energising which had everybody on their feet. Shama, Chirag and Nimesh were versatile singers who played to the crowd changing the tempo when required. Whether it was a Bollywood classic, a dance track or a Michael Jackson classic, they had everything in abundance.It was a joy to have had such talented singers and an outstanding band at my wedding reception. It is a night that my friends and family still talk about and want to re-live again simply because of the flawless entertainment present in Shama, Chirag, Nimesh and the band. Collectively they had such a unique offering and I have no hesitation in recommending them. "

Nilay Dassani, March 2015

" Shama is a versatile singer with an ability to sing all styles of Indian music. Shama and her band's music combines both traditional Indian melodies with modern production and are great for the dance floor as well as just to listen to . I congratulate them on their music. "
