    I've worked as soundman at three gigs with Stevie Watts and The Jo Harman Company. Not only is he always totally at one with the most subtle performance, but there are also moments when Stevie's playing suddenly goes into some kind of astonishing musical stratosphere and I am so gobsmacked by what I'm hearing that I just stop tweaking the desk and go along for the ride, knowing the whole performance is in safe hands. This musician is quite simply at the top of his game. Period.

    I consider myself to be very lucky in having Steve as a personal friend. He is a top class muso and I've seen him play in many bands over the years including Boot led Zep, The Motones, The Jo Harman Band, Ruby and the Revelators, The Ben Poole Band, Mary Coughlan and his own Massive Organ Trio. If you need a keys player you can see from the above list how wide his musical genres stretch and I personally guarantee you'll not be disappointed! Get to see him perform if you can and you'll see what I mean! Great website Steve - no slacking now!! Love ya - S xx
