The Plough, Farnham, 2nd June 2017
This is the first review I have ever written but I was so impressed by the atmosphere this talented band created, I feel compelled to write. The whole clientele of the Plough in Farnham were brought to their feet either to watch or to dance and the place simply buzzed with excitement. Sissy, the lead vocalist, was absolutely on form and rocked the place to its foundations. Brilliant night, fab musicians and above all great entertainment, more like a concert than a pub band. Well done to all and thanks to The Plough for bringing this fantastic live act to Farnham. I love the way this amazing band keep close to their fans by continuing to play the pub circuit as well as the larger venues, keep it up! A.N.
• We weren’t sure what we wanted music-wise – we left the whole night under Natalie’s supervision – and my goodness did she deliver – all the band were great – especially playing the old 70s numbers with a modern twist – got my daughters and my mother up dancing together – a night we will never forget – they are already booked in to do our next family event! Suzy & Ray,
• I just want to say how amazing the bands were and that I truly can’t say thank you enough! Brilliant night and selection of music! Thank you once again – what a band! Would definitely recommend them to anyone! Richard,
