“…The musical score was a highlight of the entire show, perfectly crafted by composer and musical director Sarah Llewellyn to suit each individual act.”
“The band, saucily clad in suspenders and bustiers (the females I hasten to add!) really add to the live and spontaneous enjoyment factor – superb music with a hint of burlesque!”
"Brilliant music performed by the comical and very talented house band kept the up-tempo pace of the show running throughout. Everything combined beautifully to provide one of the most entertaining family shows I have seen in years"
The stunning band was recorded by James Towler in Steve Winwood's Studio.
