‘You proved yourself a really assured ensemble player and soloist … altogether an assured performance. You show real musical understanding’ Charles Wiffen (Bath Spa University)

“Ian's brush work is just incredible and his well thought out and dynamic solos are equally a joy to watch. Super reliable and easy to work with - I miss our phat ‘n’ funky jams!” Katie Marie, (Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter)

“I needed a drummer for a web-based video project and was lucky enough to have Ian Evans recommended to me. Not only is he a brilliantly talented musician, but he has proved to be completely reliable and dependable. I needed a large amount of background material in the form of text and music scores and he has been extremely helpful and prompt in supplying it” Dr Simon Foxall (Managing Director, Focus on Sound Ltd)

‘I have always found Ian to be an excellent choice for a percussionist be it for classical concerts or Musical Theatre work. Apart from being highly capable in his playing, his attitude and reliability makes him an obvious 1st choice’ Martin Emslie (Omega and Alpha)

'What do you look for in a drummer? Great sense of time? Tasteful playing? Ability to work in any style? Able to work with a click track, yet not sound like a machine? Ian is one of the most professional musicians I've worked with in over 35 years in the music industry, rock solid and reliable, he is my drummer of choice in any playing situation. Did I mention he reads music fluently? An unusual talent in a drummer he's also one of the nicest guys you'll work with. Looking for a great drummer? Look no further.' Joe Moretti (Ultimate Santana, Bridgwater Pantomime Society)

‘Ian Evans is a fantastic drummer and a very professional musician. I had the pleasure of playing with him in my Cuban latin music Project band "La Cubana". He has an amazing taste of mixing different sounds and rhythms. Looking forward for our next gig!’ Milly Riquelme (La Cubana)
