Yvonne, Barry, Trish & Joy: “Very enjoyable – good variety of music – do come again.”
Malcolm, Maureen & Veronica: “An excellent band & evening.  Good variety of music from real trad to Bill Haley.  Seven superb musicians giving very lively renditions.”
Nick & Heather Anderson: “Great exponents and a faultless rendition of early New Orleans jazz.”
Roger & Lesley: “A welcome return for this popular band.  Although there were some different faces, the music was of the same high quality.  A great evening’s entertainment.”
David & Bridget; A great bunch of musicians made this evening exciting.  We really liked the seating arrangement for the band – it was good to see the pianist rather than being tucked away in the corner.”
