Lush Life Quartet...

It is always good to hear real musicianship at  showcases and jazz quartet Lush Life provided some quality sounds and a pleasant way with which to get the second half of the show underway. Available as a piano and sax duo, in just a few numbers here they showed their creative flexibility and collective talents, throwing in some Latin jazz along the way.


The Stage reviews - 4 December 2003

Our wedding was on 27/7/08 at the Elfordleigh hotel in Plympton. We just wanted to say a big thank you to Lush Life for playing at our wedding breakfast. Everyone said how good they were and the music fitted in excellently with the atmosphere of the occasion.


Thanks very much, love Sandra & Ian Gilbert.

On the Sunday we were treated to the laid back jazz sounds of Lush Life and this time I did get a chance to have a chat with them and I told them that they provided exactly what we had wanted, which was a lazy Summer Sunday afternoon atmosphere. And how flexible! When we moved from the lawn into the marquee for lunch, the guys grabbed their stuff and moved closer so we could all still hear them! Everyone was blown away and the fact that the music was live again on the Sunday really made the event special.

"I just wanted to say a big 'thank you' to you and your band for playing at our wedding reception last month. The evening was really lively and the music was exactly what was needed, just perfect. Everyone has said how good they thought you guys were and how much they enjoyed it. Especially my friend Adam, the guy who asked you to do Spain. He was really pleased as he and his wife had that in the service of their wedding."

"Dear Neil (and Members of Lush LIfe)


Thanks so much for doing such a great job playing at our wedding recently. We really appreciate you all working so hard and many people have said how good you were."

"Hi Neil,

We just wanted to say thank you for playing at our wedding.  It sounded great and we had lots of nice comments about the music. We do hope that we will be able to hear the band again sometime."


Best wishes,

Claire and Mark Whitefield

"Dear Neil,

Thank you so much for all your efforts both in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. The music was just brilliant and so many people mentioned you all afterwards Our guests were brilliantly entertained by you and you really set the tone for the day. Sad it is all over. Thanks again to you all."

"Careful thought was taken in finding the right band and genre of music that would compliment our formal charity dinner held at Britannia Royal Naval College in October 2013.  Neil Maya and 'Lush Life' provided a superb tailored set of soft jazz and virtuoso performances which delighted the guests. 'Lush Life' delivered. A rich performance, utilising the natural acoustic qualities of the quarterdeck for the reception was followed, after dinner, with a cosy intimate set in the Senior Gunroom bar. 'Lush Life' delivered. They were simply outstanding, producing exactly what was required to make this special event so memorable. I can not recommend them highly enough"

"Thanks SO much for last night. The part was everything we wanted and more. We had a great great laugh and the vibe was fantastic.  Sarah loved it all.  I think the things that made it were the people -of course- and the music. You got it spot on with how to play it and loads of people said how much they enjoyed Lush Life.  Hannah liked it a lot too. The sound was great and just what we hoped for.

See you soon"

Hi Neil,


Many thanks for some great playing at my dad's birthday on saturday evening, it was a total suprise for him and he loved it, as did the rest of us there. It made the evening very special, please pass my thanks to your guitarist as well (after all that wine and ale I've forgotten his name!).
