I caught up with Stevie and his Quartet at the Queenstown Jazz festival. Awesome set. Four of the most talented musicians I have ever seen in the South Island. I was also recently at a friends wedding where Stevie played a solo set.He is not only a master on sax but also amazing on electric guitar playing pop and rock classics that had every one on the floor.

Just caught Stevie playing in the Atrium at the Otago Museum. What a wonderful way to spend a sunday afternoon listening to some exceptional sax coupled with a very smooth voice and engaging personality. You would be a fool not to book this Irish crooner. Fantastic!!!
