Reviews from previous cabarets:
☆☆☆☆ "Her tone perfectly suits the jazz rhythms as she jumps easily from soft dulcet tones to a powerhouse belt, and she even adds a bit of scatting in for good measure. Like honey, her smooth sound doesn’t need too much vocal gymnastics to sound incredible" - North West End
"The songs are powerfully sung. All in all though it’s a very enjoyable evening with only a couple of slightly rough edges that rather fitted" - Canal St Media
"It’s funny, in-your-face and very relatable" - She-Wolf
