I must confess you, your band is the best oldtime jazzband, which I've ever heard in my life. You do a real music with heart. Each of you had me deep impressed.
(Dai Kimoto, CH, 2010)

The music the Bohém played in Davos was excellent. Tineke and I found the last evening in Steigenberg the best performance.
(Willem Peul, NL, 2010)

I want to tell you that I appreciated very much your band which is a perfect balance of traditional jazz, entertainment and music from your country with plenty of humour. And this combination by excellent musicians.
(Michel Bastide, F, 2010)

A tight-knit, disciplined, and intensely swinging ensemble. [...] The arrangements by Ittzés are both stylistically true and brilliantly inventive.
(CBMR Digest, Chicago, USA)

Temperament, Komik und Show zogen sich als verträgliche Einheit wie ein roter Faden durch den spektakulären Auftritt.
(Die Union, Deutschland)

Die Ungarn zeigten eine unbändige Spielfreunde, gepaart mit viel Humor und zurückhaltenden Show-Einlagen.
(Harz Kurier, Deutschland)

Mit ihrem temperamentvollen, mitreissenden Ragtime spielte sich die ungarische Bohém Ragtime Jazzband in die Herzen der Zuhörer und hinterliess einen glänzenden Eindruck. [...] Sie sind eine perfekt aufeinander abgestimmte Band, in der jeder sein Instrument virtuos beherrscht. Und das zeigte sich nicht nur imgemeinsamen harmonischen Zusammenspiel, sondern auch in den zahlreichen wunderschönen Soli.
(Kölner Rundschau, Deutschland)
