Wizard and Oz feedback includes;-
“their individual solos on guitar and piano were often breathtaking and I thoroughly recommend their act, which could be performed and appreciated at any Jazz festival, Modern, Contemporary or Traditional SOUTHERN JAZZ – ADELAIDE
“Andrew’s piano prowess takes a back seat to no one. David is one of the most versatile singers in the business, amazing! ST JOHN JAZZ & BLUES FESTIVAL, NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA
“Piano virtuosity – stunning vocals – a great nights entertainment not to be missed” GILLIAN & DAVID HELFGOTT
“A dynamic duo with a repertoire second to none. Wizard & Oz brought the 2006 Paynesville Jazz Festival to a halt with thunderous applause and patrons screaming for more. Andrew and David stand alone as Australia’s foremost duo” PAYNESVILLE JAZZ FESTIVAL
“…had the audience captivated by brilliant piano and guitar playing, along with relaxed solo and duo singing. I love Dave’s gravely voice, and the obvious communication and musical feeling between these two. And I think we were all blown away by the ultra fast trills and glissandos on piano” HAMILTON JAZZ SOCIETY, NZ
“Wizard & Oz Rocked…Passion and complete commitment flowed from the stage throughout every song…” MANAWATU STANDARD PALMERSTON NORTH GLOBE THEATRE PERFORMANCE REVIEW
“…enthralled audience to an evening of sheer enjoyment of musicality. Their brilliant musicianship took us on a roller coaster ride through an eclectic mix of genres…” ROYAL WANGANUI OPERA HOUSE REVIEW
