‘A wonderful musical treat which is not just for the nostalgic. I noticed many younger faces amongst the 500 plus audience, who came to enjoy the timeless quality of the music and musicianship. Tony is more than a fine singer with the utmost respect for a lyric, he also plays a mean trumpet and injects just the right amount of humour and interesting facts and anecdotes to the show’. Chris Hare, Encore Magazine
‘…simply one of the best shows I’ve had the pleasure of booking for our Midweek Matinee series. It’s a sure-fire sell-out, and the blend of top class music with anecdotes and humour makes this one of the best touring shows for this style of presentation’. Manager, Broadway Theatre, Catford
‘Thanks for a wonderful show. As always, the audience really appreciated the quality of the music, the humour and the production. See you for a return date very soon’ – Ginny Williams Theatre Manager, Wyllyotts
