" Aydenne Simone is generous with her musicians, giving them ample solo space and indeed, her own performance at this Sarah Vaughan gig was more like a soloist in a quintet than a singer with a backing band, and the songs were like blowing sessions. Her group is a tight, expert unit capable of delivering jazz on many levels. Last night they delighted a packed house with a gutsy performance of vocal classics which could scarcely have been improved."
Soho Jazz Festival 2017
"Aydenne's voice is so strong and she is so energetic that we all forgot about rain and felt ourselves like superwomen filled with her energy. Aydenne, thank you"
"Aydenne is a superstar, our place is always jamming when Aydenne is performing"
“She is one of the few singers around today who is not a copy of someone else”.
Keith Ingham (Grammy nominee)
" Not only did Aydenne Simone bring to Peggy’s a fine, high quality ensemble of musicians, not only did she put together a repertoire of soul jazz classics, she also brought to Peggy’s our first full audience standing ovation. Aydenne Simone brought the house down at Peggy’s Skylight, her performance was electric, fantastic and unforgettable.!"

"This is Terry, the drummer from the Unity Stompers. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your performance at East Dene on Sunday. Your spirit definitely brought out the best in me and you took the band to a whole new level! I came home buzzing and can safely say it was the best, most rewarding gig I have ever performed in 40 years of playing! I do hope we can team up again very soon for some great music. Well done Aydenne, you are fantastic! All the Best,
"Oh oh oh ! The Queen of Jazz - Aydenne Simone and trumpeter supreme- Andy Davies absolutely smashed it tonight ! With uber pianist Liam Stevens, demon bass p...layer Tom Dring and jump in' Joe Dessauer on drums the Jazz Room was on fire !The ghosts of Sarah Vaughan and Miles Davis danced and at the end there was an unprecedented 100 % standing ovation. "Awesome" just doesn't do it! This is the real thing."
