"Saw the fabulous duo "The Awesome" last night at a house concert in Cape Paterson.

The duo consists of Milena Cifali, a highly trained classical and jazz guitarist,

very ably supported by the empathetic Jim Horvath on upright bass.

Catch up with them if you can. Well worth it."

Geoff Kluke one of Australia's

leading jazz bassists and jazz lecturer at VCA Melbourne.

It was amazing to see The Awesome in action! Of all the acts that we 

saw at Merimbula Jazz Festival Milena radiates joy

when she sings so beautiful to watch

and more beautiful to listen to." Melitta Symmonds 

"1700 audience loved them! Awesome!'

Joe Nixon, music director Alice Springs Beanie Festival

The Awesome's music exudes happiness and Milena is a talented and

versatile guitarist!' Paul Baker, Australia's most recorded session guitarist

Not much else I can say, their name speaks for itself"

I would have no hesitations recommending

them for any functions.' Nikki, functions manager, Ulladulla Ex Servos Club
