“I had only dropped into the RSL for a meal whilst away from my home in the Blue mountains. Don’t know anybody here – sat down to listen to Jane after eating and thought I’d only stay for a few songs – then I couldn’t leave. Your original songs are moving, honest and heart wrenching at times. Your choice of covers took me right back and you nailed them beautifully. Thanks for digging me out of my potential misery hole tonight.“
“Jane was fabulous ❤️ Chilled, great song choices and a lovely happy woman.“
