"I’m privileged to have worked with Jon on tour in 2016. His skill on the bass and his vocal talent are exemplary and his work ethic is incredible. He’s earned my respect both as a musician and a person."
Eddie Allen, Guitarist - Marty Wilde and The Wildcats. Ex Editor Guitarist Magazine.
"Apart from being a genuinely lovely guy he is also a top bass man. He plays solid bass lines and always plays the right thing to any tune he’s playing on. Check out the JENNER, MELLOR rhythm section on the last OUCH album MEDWAY DOG..".
Clive Jenner, drummer - Groove Armada, Lenny Kravitz, The Proclaimmers, The Freestylers
"First and foremost Jon is an excellent bass player with a superb knack for writing lyrical, melodic bass lines for original material. Think of him as a slightly over-exited funky McCartney without a plektrum who doesn’t fear venturing above the 7th fret. If you’re playing covers, Jon is not only a quick learner – but more importantly when the parts have entered his mind they stay there and will be delivered consistently at any time under any circumstance. Jon is also an accomplished backing vocalist with a very good ear for hearing (and hitting!) even the most spurious notes in complex arrangements – live as well as in the studio. "
Preben Raunsbjerg, Producer and guiatrist - James Burton's band
"I can honestly say that I have never met anyone so dedicated and passionate about music. His bass playing and harmonies are second to none in all the different styles of music that we covered including pop,reggae,ska and rock and he is also the most honest and hardworking bloke I have ever worked with.”
Kevin Taylor, Ouch!
"I have worked with Jon for 5 years as a highly driven & motivated bass player and band leader. He is a top-notch session musician, always musically prepared and very technically apt. He has a great feel for many genres of music.”
Mandy Meadows, TMM
"Jon was a dependable member of the band, a quick learner of new songs and had a great feel for the music (jazz/funk/soul so quite often very bass driven). He contributed many creative ideas and is a good song writer."
Saeed Shah, Freefall
