"You were great, a big part of making our day so fabulous & memorable; the music was just right ... Lots of people commented on how great the band and music was ... "
"We thought long and hard about how we could make our ceremony just that little bit different and special. We were looking for quality and taste rather than something gimmicky! Avelia and Jill exceeded our expectations and provided music that wowed everyone, especially us. [The music] during the ceremony was particularly poignant and emotional. A sincere thank you."
Press Quotes (as a trumpet soloist)
Trumpeter Avelia Moisey and pianist Alvin Moisey gave the British premiere of Ian Hughes' Sonata for Trumpet. The piece opened with driving motion that got its energy from the angular sixteenth-note runs encompassing the entire range of the instrument. ... The flowing, haunting sounds of the second movement evoked the contemplative mood of a quieter time. Sensitively performed by both players, the lingering quality of the atmosphere came off very well. Fanfare-like double-tongued bursts opened the third movement. Wide intervals and an assortment of tough sixteenth-note runs created a relentless feeling. Their negotiation of these runs and leaps was impressive. ... Moisey's full, resonant sound was a joy for all in attendance. Alvin Moisey is to be commended for his fine performance as well.

Press Quotes (as a writer/performer) for "Ifs, Buts & Babies"
A beautiful, funny and poignant show with lots of laughs and real heart. Great songs too.
Neil Foster, BBC Radio York
A great mix of comedy, interspersed with cleverly written songs and fun dance routines, but with just the right amount of pathos ... The predominantly female audience laughed and chuckled as they recognised only too well the different scenarios, advice and frustrations of being a parent ... also very accessible to men.
Yvonne Delahaye, UK Theatre Network
The notion of the perfect mother is about to be dispelled in a series of humorous sketches
I laughed out loud ... Keep an eye out for it at a theatre near you.
