Press & Testimonials

“Thank you so much for your astounding playing on the Chicago film project.  The director was blown away... and the Henry VIII stuff for Channel 4 was wonderful too” Phil Sheppard

cellist & composer, 2009

It was so nice having such a lovely bassist come in.  In the past professionals have tried to change everything - I felt much more comfortable with you behind me!”

Phil Donnelly - aged 17

English Schools Symphony Orchestra 2008

“Backed by British expert Jonny Gee on double bass … they made some wonderful music.  Brilliancies came and went so fast that there was hardly any time to applaud until the end.”

Jack Massarik, Evening Standard

Lollo Meier concert 2004

“[In] Summerhayes' comic theatrical Mosquito Splat, bassist Jonny Gee is amusingly distracted by a nuisance insect before it meets its death on his instrument ...rendered with unbuttoned passion and brilliance.”

The Strad Magazine

Purcell Room concert 2000

“The five performers seemed to bring out not only their own personalities, but the personalities of their instruments, such as Jonny Gee the bassist following an imaginary mosquito around the stage.”


Salisbury Festival 2002

“One minute we were soaring … near ecstatic playing, the next toe-tapping was replaced with hand-on-heart mournfulness as bassist Jonny Gee dipped the pace to accommodate something haunting.  The shining eyes and smiles all around said it all."
