Tommy Picket, Charlie Farley's "Alex and Malcolm are a breath of fresh air in any room. They play a scintillating mixture of songs you know, songs you'd forgotten you knew and songs you'll rush to look up when you get home. Alex's singing is steeped in sultry jazz tradition and delivered with a gutsiness that demands attention and delivers goosebumps to the listener. Malcolm is a musician's musician. Always professional, well-organised and well presented, but with a pinch of 'lovable lout' thrown in. He never fails to deliver the perfect accompaniment, both vocally and instrumentally. Any venue, large or small would be well-advised to hire this excellent duo.
Chelsea McGregor-Dunn "Just want to send a BIG thank you for entertaining our guests on our memorable evening!
