"Shirty brilliantly played for and facilitated hands-on sessions with a huge variety of visitors for the Museum of Science and Industry's Light Fantastic event. Everyone loved him and his fantastic kit - from teens to grandparents to young families. We had reams of excellent feedback mentioning him and saw fascination on every face! For our Friday night event, he was a total hit with the audience of on-trend young professionals. Throughout the event, he was professional, helpful and engaging"

"The laser drum kit workshop was simply amazing! Nothing like I have ever seen before, and as a producer stepping away from using my keyboard and computer and actually using my hands and legs to trigger different sound was a great experience. It felt better then just clicking in or recording in sound through a keyboard. I definitely would recommend anyone to try this out, it's a whole new experience."

Laser Drums was so popular at our event, we brought it back later in the year! All of our audiences, young and old, were queuing to have a play and experience something like never before. Shirty is confident and with such detailed knowledge of his kit, it made booking something that involved lasers very simple.

"Having seen his laser drum at the Science Museum earlier this year, I was impressed by its adaptability to be an impressive musical instrument in these two somewhat different settings. It was very energising to see something different and engaging. Seeing him enjoy himself whilst producing music was refreshing and a break from the 'moody cool' musician look. It was innovative and creative, inviting us to question how music is played and received."

"Shirty's performance was one of the most original, exciting performances I've seen in London or elsewhere. The room was packed with people dancing and cheering at the laser drum kit. Looking forward to seeing what he comes up with next."
