Testimonials

We can easily say that Paul Robert Burton and his band were the standout act at this years Kiama Jazz & Blues Festival. Where ever he played and in whatever venue (caf, outdoor concert, club) or line up (from solo to full on band) the crowds were huge, bopping and excited. Venues were full to capacity and then some! During a sidewalk caf appearance, the crowds spilled onto the street & stopped traffic! Apart from his musical gifts, Paul was appreciated by festival management as a source of information regarding other artists, and brought great energy, inspiration and spirit to our Festival. People raved for weeks afterwards, and purchased Pauls CDs aplenty, and we have had considerable requests since the festival as to where & when Paul might play again.
