The standard of all of these guys is incredible and I'm really really proud to have been asked to do this gig. Learning 12 tracks in a couple of days and performing it live was a great buzz and I'm glad I didn't let anyone (or myself) down!"

He’s also a good lad to have on board. What more can I say?!" Martin O’Shea – manager, Atomic Kitten.
..A FEW HIGHLIGHTS?
"Obviously all gigs vary and most have been memorable for many different reasons - the endless happy Fridays of Crunch in Birmingham, playing week in week out with the cream of the worlds djs at Republica with Scott Bond, the thousands of miles I've travelled, the thousands of people I have met - it's been amazing so far - I look forward to what the future brings!" a few of ian's biggest highlights include:
WE LOVE & SPACE CLOSING FIESTA - SEPTEMBER 27TH 2009 - After what is possibly the best series of performances in Ian's career so far, the concluding gig at the We Love Sundays and Space Closing Fiesta didn't disappoint. Alfredo and Ian.C once again rocked the Sunset Terrace of Space and the first minute of the video below shows just what a season it was.
