From New York to entertaining the Prime Minister - from radio interviews to Pershore - how lucky were we!! Fabulous evening last night with the wonderful Kim Cypher and her band. She sparkled in her dress and gave a sparkling performance too and included audience participation as well.
You cannot fault the quality of the musicianship and presentation and we were pleased to offer Kim the jazz club as a platform to expand the venues of her tour and also our audience a night of music covering different styles and genres. You all know by now that we like to mix and match and do not offer just one genre of jazz to our audience - jazz is all styles and we have over the years offered quality music and entertainment.
Thanks to Kim and your handsome guys for a quality show and we wish you every success for the future - keep following your dreams - Margaret Smith
Response: Thank you Maggie & Graham for inviting us along. It was a fabulous night. We look forward to Pershore Jazz Festival next year xx
Dear Kim and friends, many thanks for making such a special occasion of my 70th birthday lunch, you could not have done more. Everyone kept telling me how good you were, I know, that's why I booked you. So pleased I picked up the flyer at the celebration where I first saw you. I could become a groupie or am I showing my age? All the best for the future, hopefully the world will pick up on your talents even faster. Love Pam
Response: Aw, thank you Pam. You are so welcome. It was a lovely birthday celebration and you deserved it! xx
Kim lit up the room of course and sang like an Angel.
Response: Thank you Francis. It was a pleasure performing with your band Nica's Dream x
Saxophonist and singer Kim Cypher breaks through onto the national stage with this beguiling and accessible collection of originals and classics, performed with great verve and style.
Response: Thank you Mark and London Jazz News. I'm thrilled you enjoyed my album x

Response: Thank you Richard & Doug. It was an absolute pleasure performing my London debut gig via Richard Douglas Productions x
Just wanted to thank you for your contribution to the Foyer Programme at this year's festival.
We plan this part of the festival programme to represent the best of Bristol and the South West region's talent, and we certainly met that goal with your band's introduction to the Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival.
Leading your band as both vocalist and saxophonist was exciting to watch and immediately won applause of the large audience. Your energy as both a musician and performer does more than justice to the standards you offer, and the songs that you have composed fit beautifully with the arrangements that you have given to those standards.
I wish you well with your touring plan and congratulate a talent that has come to the profession later than usual. Perhaps that is why you have so much to offer.

Response: Thank you very much Colin. It was amazing to be part of such a fantastic festival that celebrates such a diverse range of talent. Well done to you, Denny Ilett, Katya Gorrie and all the team for such a great festival. Here's to the 2018 festival!
A great performance from Kim Cypher and Lee Jones at the Roses, Tewkesbury in the Sunday lunchtime jazz slot! Kim combines a very fluent tenor, alto and soprano sax style with a lovely voice, and her guitarist, Lee Jones was excellent. From 'Summertime' to 'Careless Whisper' it was a well chosen set, and top quality all the way.
Response: Thank you so much Keith for the lovely review and thank you fro coming along to support the event. It was a really lovely gig and we really enjoyed it x
Dear Kim and Mike,
OMG!!! We just have to tell you what a magnificent evening we had for our wedding, when you told us not to worry about how it would go we didn't realise just how little we would have to worry. Our guests have not stopped telling us what a great evening it was and how brilliant you and your band were and we have to agree, our first dance was much better than we ever thought it would be and the way you involved our children and made them feel so special was pure magic. We have made a special effort to thank Jane and John for introducing you to us and whenever we can we will try to see you perform. I didn't get a chance to thank you all on the evening before you left so on behalf of Jo and myself thank you all, you did a magnificent and very memorable job and your performance will be talked about for a very long time to come.
Thank you all once again for making our wedding perfect, well done.
Yours, most sincerely
Will and Jo.
Response: Thank you Will & Jo, it was our pleasure xx

Response: Thank you for this great review on Twitter
Dear Kim & Mike and your lovely boys, Jeremy and I just wanted to say thank you so much for the fabulous performance you gave at our wedding last weekend. Of course I knew you would be brilliant having heard you all play before but the attention to detail you gave at our New York themed party blew us away. From the opening song Empire State of Mind you played as our guests took their seats to all the boys wearing their New York ties from your trip there this year - so thoughtful, thank you. You absolutely made our afternoon event - it wouldn't have been the same without you. I cannot recommend you highly enough for any function. I am so glad we met. You are warm, fun, extremely talented and lovely people. Thank you xxx
Response: It was our pleasure. You are both so LOVELY, we wanted to make your wedding extra special. Look forward to seeing you again soon xx
