What they say about us

picture of an owlBelow are genuinely unsolicited genuine comments from audience survivors of our gigs, honest.

If you would like your comment to be included, please send it in via our CONTACT page.

We will publish all comments received unless they contain language that you wouldn't want your grandchildren to adopt. Comments which are clearly promoting commercial enterprises or seeking soul mates, including casual encounters, may be subject to negotiable but significant fees before being posted. Our policy on proposals of marriage, and our nascent escort agency, are still being out-sourced by tender.

Tim Porter, co-ordinator Cotswolds Distillery Festival:

"Your performances went down really well. Much appreciated, especially by Dan Szor the American owner (and big music fan) of the Distillery. Hope you had a good  time at The Fleece, and managed to get back home with most of the choir. (Ed. We did and we did.)

Please thank everybody individually from me and the Distillery team.”

Lady after our Tetbury Goods Shed gig:

(Lady on leaving.) "Thank you, that was brilliant."
(Us) "You can buy a CD if you wish."
( Lady ) "I don't want a CD, I want to take all you lot home."

A friend of Angus V. writes of our Hullavington gig:

"Brilliant, well done.      
That was the most entertaining/humorous/unique experience we can recall.    
If any ‘night out’ in 2019 ‘tops’ that, it will have to be extraordinary.      
We would appreciate a list of your performances for the rest of the year. We promise not to become ‘groupies’ but we would certainly like to see/experience another occasion.
We hope you enjoyed your visit to The Hullavington Arms, you certainly deserved to unwind.
I have a bet that says the CD will be out of the wrapper and being played before AM becomes PM today.
Can you please advise how we start a claim for damages. Our hands are sore and our voices are rough - there must be a claim to be made under some health and safety legislation.
Thanks again, we hope AK 47 goes from strength to strength in the decades ahead. Must go, I’m off to my ‘shed’. "

A friend of Neil M. who sings with him in the Georgian Bristol Choir is reported by him to have said of the same gig:

....that she spent the whole time either laughing or crying. I think she was laughing at the jokes and crying at the exquisite harmonies but I may have got that the wrong way round.

Comments from our Ashton Keynes village hall floor fund raiser:

Dorothy (whose birthday it was so we sang HB2U) said it was her best birthday ever!

Another lady said we'd improved so much since she last heard us that it was outstanding, really super harmonies and great mixture of music.

A third said we were the best she had ever heard and great entertainment!

From the chap who bought us a barrel of beer in Pewsey where we were raising money for Prospect Hospice:

"I'm pleasantly surprised at how good you are ... honestly ... really surprised!"
