 “Graham is a combination of Eric Clapton, Edie Van Halen and Hendrix.  I love the way Graham plays, especially when he lets go and opens up.”SIXTO (SUGARMAN) RODRIGUEZ

 “Graham Gillot leads the pack of a new-wave of young session guitarists – this time out of the Cape. As a fine exponent of his instrument, Graham is able to match whatever requirement is made of him - in the highly-demanding, stressful conditions of contemporary recording studio schedules. Across all musical genres – from Latin and Flamenco through to scorching rock – Graham rises to the occasion – delivering fine, accurate and passionate guitar wizardry. Indeed – a guitar for all seasons.” PATRIC VAN BLERK – CAPE TOWN SOUND

 ‘’I was invited to attend the Rodriquez show in Cape Town where Acoustica was the opening act for the evening.  The musical genius on stage was brilliantly portrayed by all 4 of the band members of Acoustica, especially Graham.  No fancy effects or displays just good all-round acoustic style music.’’ STEFAN ESTERHUIZEN – ENTERTAINMENT CO-ORDINATOR Golden Valley Casino - Sun International

 “I was very impressed with his guitar playing and his skills at improvising.  Graham is a real ‘virtuoso’ guitarist. “ DAVID DINNELL – LEAD GUITARIST OF THE TOP LONDON ‘ROLLING STONES TRIBUTE BAND’
