LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION:
Ayal Elbaz and his Duo - The Duo (2of a kind) have been playing in my restaurant 'Starka' twice a week for over 2 and a half years.
Ayal is a very friendly man who loves playing the guitar, singing, talking with people and entertaining the audience. He is the head of The Duo (2of a kind) - always on time and when on vacation he arranges a replacement and thus everything always goes smooth and easy going. You can always count on them - this is important when people make bookings just to listen to The Duo.
They play and sing with a lot of enthusiasm and I've never kn ... own The Duo to refuse an encore when asked.
They make people relax, sing with them and even dance. Ayal has a nice approach to life - romantic and full of passion/music. He collects vinyl records and adores women :-)
He is like Rodrigues, Sugar Man, I met him on Plac Wolnica in Cracow playing with his band on the street and that is how our friendship had begun.
I truly recommend The Duo, it is always great fun with them!

LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION:
Mr. Ayal Elbaz - and his duo act The Duo ('2of a kind') have been performing in our pub every week for over a year and a half. At this time Ayal became known as an excellent guitarist and a great performer while the female vocalist was always emotionally moving and professional.
In my opinion Mr. Ayal Elbaz is one of the most gifted guitar player with whom we had the pleasure to collaborate.
All performances were marked by professionalism and excellent and personal rapport with the audience.
Our entire co-operation proceeded without any reservations in a friendly and conflict-free atmosphere. I would certainly recommend The Duo and guarantee the success of any collaboration with them.
