Review

'They sound not unlike a full-blown rock band yet they are a duo! …the dance floor is full, there are arms in the air, dancing on the bar, singing along, smiles all around, it's a lot of fun and yes, a thoroughly good time was had by all..'

You'd think it would be quiet at this time of year, but no, it was a great night!

Review

They stroll out on stage plug in and start, kicking straight into their set with a good clean sound which gets to you immediately.

Then you are in for a surprise.

Once in a while you stumble across a voice that grabs you and refuses to let you go, the singer has such a voice, powerful, confident, relaxed, she handles soul, rock and pop equally well. You know all the songs but they’re delivered with a slick rocking original sound.

The second set sees the crowd dancing, getting into the spirit of things and yelling for more. Twenty minutes later the crowd is starting to go home and you can still hear the songs being sung outside.
