Reviews

Well, what can we say… what a night!. The intimate evening with Dylan and Jo and The Lounge in Howick was amazing. We were treated to a feast of jazz, blues and soul. Dylan's guitar skill are truly mind boggling and Jo's gorgeous voice you could never get tired of. The customers raved about the night and we would love to invite them back.

Jo & Dylan played at our wedding reception in 2021. They were really easy to book and communicate with in preparation for the event. They also worked seamlessly with our audio company around the set up. Their music was absolutely perfect for our wedding. Jo’s vocals take you to another dimension - she is a phenomenal voice that we were spoilt to have as background to our chatter and party. Dylan’s guitar works out as a perfect accompaniment to Jo, skilfully and again seamlessly delivered. I couldn’t have wished for more. And I highly recommend this high quality duo for your event. Absolutely outstanding performance.

Jo and Dylan performed at Matakana Estate at one of our Cellar Door Live Sessions, entertaining our guests with a mixture of blues, soul and jazz songs. They are professional and sound amazing! I would definitely recommend them and our guests only had good things to say about them. It was a pleasure to have Jo and Dylan perform for us.

Jo and Dylan were absolutely brilliant and created the perfect Wednesday night Jazzy atmosphere at our little wine bar. All the locals enjoyed it very much!

Dylan Kay and Jo Kelsey's Blues Jazz Soul gig was a sheer delight and a real musical treat. Dylan on guitar and Jo's vocals delivered a totally blissful interlude of old favourites and fresh interpretations, a perfect combo!
