“This was a show packed full of energy and passion, the set list was out of this world, on stage banter was hilarious. It was brilliant.” Beat Magazine
“Musically this show couldn’t be faulted. The band transformed relatively simple pieces of blues, pop and rock and roll into musical showcases. I wondered if the Sun singers back then had musicians of this calibre.” TheClothesline.com.au
