“Love this band! Good work, keep it up.”
-Lynval Golding –The Specials

“I have been a huge fan of Ska and 2tone for 35 years. I have seen hundreds of bands but never have I seen a band that had me gob-smacked the way you did. The entire performance from start to finish was amazingly faultless. Not only that but the choice of songs and the style in which you delivered the entire show was first class. Thank you for showing the people of today what Ska is really like.”
-George Wilson –Butlins Madness Weekender

“We enjoyed every second that you played and our guests have not stopped talking about, ‘The amazing band at Noel and Jade’s wedding!’… Our friends have asked for your contact details as a reference for future parties! We were totally blown away by the sets that you played for us and will forever be thankful for the truly amazing entertainment you allowed us all to experience. We have never danced so much in our lives! From the very bottom of our hearts, thank you!”
-Jade, Noel and our very appreciative wedding guests
