PATRICK DAVEY
Patrick Davey is a  jazz drummer who is much in demand.  The Guardian described his playing as 'beautifully judged' as part of Phronesis, whose 2010 album  ‘Alive’ was chosen as 'jazz album of the year' by Mojo and Jazzwise.   Patrick is also a swinger, playing regularly with The Puppini Sisters and not afraid to don a trilby and bash out the Gene Krupa beats for top swing band King Candy And The Sugar Push, who've played everywhere from Ronnie Scotts to The Royal Albert Hall.

DAVID CUESTA
David Cuesta creates the visual style for Tongue Fu with his team at CR&D.  At the gigs, he explores poetry through the moving image.  David, or Doctor Ocular as we like to call him, layers archival footage clips with slides and bespoke animations,  building up a rich, expressive and surprisingly serendipitous moving landscapes in time to the music & poetry.  Before setting up Creative Research and Development, he worked at studios in both Canada and the UK.  Projects have included work for Rich Mix, John Lewis, Sony Playstation, Vodafone, and Red Bull.
