“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.”
