"These professional young musicians came on cold to an early evening audience and were simply sensational. The band manage great freshness yet maintain an authentic accurate sound. Full Marks."

The Stage

"Back by popular demand for an incredible fourth year at Montreux, their explosive live shows have become legendary."

Montreux Jazz Festival

"I wanted to take a few minutes to write a note of personal thanks for the amazing contribution you made to the Children In Need event on Friday. I was extraordinarily impressed not just by the professionalism which you exuded on the night, but also by the willingness to work within the often very strange demands of television. I'm not sure if you have had the chance to see the result on television, but you looked and sounded great."

Executive Editor, BBC East

"The band entertained 200 delegates from all over the world at the Welcome Party that kicked off the Variety Children's Charity Annual 5-day International Convention held in May at The Royal Lancaster Hotel, London. As usual, the band was fantastic and provided the Convention with a sensational opening."

Tony Hatch – songwriting legend and Variety Club member

"The show has the most important ingredients: It is musically brilliant, it is great to listen to, songwriting is exceptional, and the arrangements of the covers are superb. The band really are a band of very talented musicians."

BBC Radio 2 website - Albums of the year
