Royal Academy of Dance Summer Party – Sarah-Jane Lewis Lead Events Officer “.. Our staff loved the music and didn’t want it to end, …It really made our evening special ..we very much hope we can work with you again in the future.”
David Field, PRIMA Design Exhibition ” The Allstars touch all the nerve endings, stirring and feeding our emotions. From firing the intense and elated feelings of happiness to evoking the warm tears from remembering lost love, the Allstars playing ‘Gypsy’ let you know you are alive. The music hits you in way some poetry can but stays with you mainly because it inspires the heart. Divine stuff !“.
Pete Watson, Ealing Jazz Festival “One of the highlights of this years Ealing Jazz Festival”
Kath Serkis, Organiser of Bastille Day Festival, Borough Market “ The Allstars really made our Bastille Day celebrations go with a swing! They provided just the right touch of authenticity with their bal musette and Gypsy Swing numbers, and their musicianship was incredible. “

“Singers and Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime.
Every day, they face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again.
Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream.
With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment.
With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life – the car, the family, the house, the nest egg.
Because musicians and singers are willing to give their entire lives to a moment – to that melody, that lyric, that chord, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul.
Singers and Musicians are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart.
In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.”
- David Ackert, LA Times
