From Our Girl in China - Zoe Gilby Reports from Fengqingju International Jazz Festival..

"We did the first gig and it went really well. The audience was around three thousand Chinese!! The stage setup was like something from Glastonbury festival main stage. Filmed with top of the range camera equipment that was projected directly onto an enormous screen backdrop. They played some of my youtube videos on the screen before we went on and the play-on music was like something from the X Factor final. Although obviously not a "jazz crowd" I've never experienced such an enthusiastic audience before. Cheering and waving as soon as we got on stage. They treat you like you're really famous. When I introduced the guys they all cheered wildly but they went totally crazy when I introduced Andy as my husband, they seem to really like that. I moved around the stage a bit and anytime I went up to the edge that whole section of the audience went nuts! Cheering, waving and blowing kisses. After the set we were bombarded with autograph signing and posed pictures, even from the security staff. It was surreal but fantastic. We've had a taste of how the other half live!!"
