“: "A swinging duo with a vast repertoire of standards of the Great American Songbook and beyond, and Diane's clever songwriting is highly entertaining. Great fun."”

Judy Carmichael Jazz Pianist, vocalist and Radio Host

“Diane has innovative ideas on audience participation and always provides a welcoming atmosphere. She endeavours to include as many of the audience as possible playing their favourite songs. the act is so varied so the audiences will never get bored. As a fellow entertainer I have thoroughly enjoyed and been impressed by their performance and by the range of repertoire. diane has frequently invited me to perform and I have joined in on various ensembles along with her husband Bob who is an excellent bass guitarist.”

“Diane Fast and Bob Neale visited in Finland on spring 2013. We had a privilege to work with these great musicians and excellent artists with amazing talent. Together we did one workshop, which goal was to share what is like to be professional musician, how to perform and contact with audience and Diane and Bob did that and they really entertained us. We also had a suberb jam session. After workshop Diane and Bob had a gig at Jyväskylä´s most well-known music bar, Poppari. Their song choices, fluent way to communicate true music, interaction with audience and amazing musicality really was something special. We also enjoyed the fun part of the show, which were all those games and riddles which they did while playing music."”

Ms. Tiina Mustonen principal of Keski-Suomen Popjazz-institute, Finland

“Thanks to Diane and Bob for a great gig! The ones that were there talked about it the next day and were amazed about their talent, presence and wide repertoire, and the ones that were not there were sorry about it. They have to come back!”

“I had the opportunity to work with Diane and Bob for years. They are so talented and easy going. I was able to bring in some very rough recordings, they were able to not only transpose the into my key, but write out parts for different instruments on the fly. They are both wonderfully upbeat and gifted, a true joy to work with. I hope to work with them more in the future. They are like family.”

“Diane Fast - what an entertainer!!! - the whole room was buzzing all evening. I'm looking forward to attending her headline show which will be even better if she brings Bob along. His playing was impeccable.”

“Diane Fast and Bob Neale are a dynamic and versatile duo. They truly love their audience and are there for them in every way that they can be. They are engaging and welcoming and draw listeners into their colorful musical world.”

Stephanie Anne Johnson singer, songwriter, guitarist Los Angeles, California

“I hold Diane’s voice right alongside the likes of Diana Krall, Ann Wilson or Sade. She takes her listeners on a journey across time and genre into an intimate universe where sentiment and comedy live in harmony and audience members become close friends who laugh and sing together. It’s really quite magical. And Bob’s rhythmic and harmonic support is the perfect complement to Diane’s piano and vocal stylings. His brilliant sense of comic timing and appreciable love of the music and Diane make him welcome in the spotlight they share. Diane and Bob are the best kind of music lovers! Sharing their sparkling rapport and repertoire with appreciative audiences, they simply shine.”
