Looking for an awesome band for your party? Look no further. Giulia and The Lizards were such a great find for my birthday bash. They have a great sound - Giulia has a fantastic voice - play great tunes and the right stage presence to encourage your guests to get up and dance - which they did all evening. On top of that, they were so accommodating and just lovely people to work with! Even weeks later, people keep telling me how awesome the band was and where did I find them?! I wholeheartedly recommend them.
Thanks so much , Jose for arranging the shows with Giulia and the Lizards Trio. Giulia's voice is amazing and the band is superb too, so we are really happy to have you here performing bi-weekly. Giulia and the Lizards Trio are great at performing hits from all eras , ranging from classic rock and roll, Motown, Soul, to 80's pop, 90's R & B, Latin, Funk, Disco, Reggae and current pop and mainstream hits. Their performances are truly engaging, full of floor fillers and sing-along songs. I hire Giulia and the Lizards Trio, a few times per month , here at our night club and they are simply fantastic!, so I would happily recommend the band for any events or celebrations with no hesitation.

Giulia and Jose are fantastic at bringing the crowd together here at Lockes. Being a very new bar we were excited to launch our first live music evening and they have assisted us perfectly in showcasing our venue to our guests! We are delighted to have them as part of our live music repertoire for our bar.”"
This is the second year Jose and Giulia have been booked at Lowlands Club. The 'Smooth Summer Sounds lunch-time concert we had at the club in June 2019 was a sell-out. In fact Jose & Giulia were such a hit we booked them again for August 2019. They are both such accomplished and versatile musicians and we have had so many positive comments we will book them again for Summer 2020. I have no hesitation in recommending them as we all had a thoroughly enjoyable time listening to them both play and Giulia sing.

We hired the band for a wedding celebration in our garden. Jose made the booking process very easy and he was very careful to make sure we had the right kind of mix of instruments and singer to suit us. He sent a long and varied list of song choices. Requests were also encouraged. On the day the band were professional in every way from setting up to performing a whole beautiful range of songs. There was something to suit everyone. This band had just the right mix for us of jazzy, cool music while our guests wanted to eat and talk, but could turn up the volume and liven up the beat at just the right time for some dancing. Plus the band were such lovely guys - friendly and warm and had a great rapport with our guests. We have had great feedback from our guests about how great the band were. I can thoroughly recommend booking this band
