“A spellbinding performance from start to finish”

Daily Record, Scotland

“They had the sold-out crowd dancing feverishly in the aisles… Earned a thundering roar of patrons demanding an encore.”

Press & Journal

“With great harmonies, booming bass, blissful horns and some superb dance routines this is a show that delivers music and memories in equal measure. ”

“The choreography and costume changes were immaculate and more than a few hearts fell in love with the lovely solo singer…”

“All of the singers and the band were of the highest calibre – each could have carried the show on their own.”

Hampshire Chronicle
