" Back by popular demand for an incredible fourth year at Montreux, their explosive live shows have become legendary. "

Montreux Jazz Festival

" I wanted to take a few minutes to write a note of personal thanks for the amazing contribution you made to the Children In Need event on Friday. I was extraordinarily impressed not just by the professionalism which you exuded on the night, but also by the willingness to work within the often very strange demands of television. I'm not sure if you have had the chance to see the result on television, but you looked and sounded great. "

Executive Editor, BBC East
