"Really enjoyed the gig. Gigi and The Drifts are consummate professionals who delivered a great show. The singer is an enigmatic performer with a soaring vocal range; comfortable with an eclectic repertoire of classic jazz and blues covers, as well as some smooth self-penned numbers. She is ably backed up by her seemingly telepathic band with effortless bass meshing perfectly with the accomplished meanderings of the pianist. They got a great reception from an enthusiastic crowd and will surely go on to bigger and better things."

"I've seen Gigi and The Drifts performing on several occasions and every single time the performances were of an exceptional high standard. The music delivery was always fantastic with exceptional vocal performances and an amazing musicianship. Tiago. I thought the musicians were fantastic and the singer has a stunning voice and great stage presence. The song selection was great also, as they played a real mix of older classics and newer contemporary tracks."
Aamir - Corporate - London
"I recently saw Gigi and the Drifts play ... The band were great. They played a varied set with some original songs and some covers. My favourite was their version of 'No Diggity' which sounded great slowed down and with the lead vocalist's soulful voice! The band played well to the audience and were good fun to watch. The singer's voice was incredible, very powerful and controlled! Overall they were a great band to go and watch for an evening. "
