“Brilliant performance! Congrats Guy and Mark and thanks for bringing such great music to town! “ – Damian Wright/Bandaluzia – July 2022, The Base, Newcastle,)

If we travelled far enough, there are probably other guitarists as excellent as you two are, though even on an international scale they must be quite rare. But is there anywhere such a duo? two guitarists with so much mutual understanding? And where could one hear anything tighter than the unis verses in the Chick Corea works?” – Gosford Regional Art Gallery, 8 October 2022, Joe Wolf, University of NSW

“Guy Strazz is amongst the most lyrical players in the land” – Sydney Morning Herald

“Mark Johns is a formidable player” – What’s On (UK)
