"Devon Currer has been my go-to guy when I've needed a solid, reliable anchor to proceedings. From presenting the finals of the Rolling Stone Rockstarter search in Cape Town to hosting the Rolling Stone stage at Up the Creek 2013, he's proved to be an effective addition to my production teams, presenting tone-appropriate, friendly and engaging links to the day or evening's entertainment. Even on camera, for Up the Creek's “Backstage TV” segments, Devon proved to be an easy-to-produce face-man, with an ability to improvise in tough conditions. I don't say this about many people, but he's almost as good as I am."

“'Classy' Devon Currer helped create the legend around the Armoury Fight Night. Our Ring Announcer since Day One, he’s a keen member of the boxing club and can be seen training most days. He has a complete passion for the sport, walks the talk and, suited and booted, is a consummate pro.”
