The Scotsman Review

"An evening of Cole Porter music starring Andrew D Brewis and a keyboard and some rather good lighting.


A delicious melange of music one knew and some one did not know. Mr Brewis wowed his audience and fully justifies the comment: "You're the top" because this guy is tops when it comes to honouring the memory of a great composer and adding his own special magic. 


What a great treat it was to be there at this performance of Cole Porter music. The fact that Brewis not only interpreted the words to perfection and also played a mean keyboard, added to the enjoyment. Cole Porter would have been rather pleased with your performance. In his own words? "It was delightful, delicious and delirious..."


As they say in Scotland:" Ye canny beat live entertainment!". This would be rather hard to actually beat!"
