"exzellente Musiker und präsentieren eine lebendige, passionierte, meisterhaft gespielte und amüsante Show, die keine Sekunde langweilig wird. Wundervolle Musik, Komödie, Parodie, Slapstick und schwarzer Humor treffen hier aufeinander…  was für eine Mischung! Verspielt, lebendig und fröhlich, voll Spaß und Freude, herrlich parodistisch und politisch inkorrekt, dazu eine wunderbar eingängige und mitreißende Musik… Sollte jemand vergessen haben, wie man lacht und sein Leben genießt, sollte er diese Show besuchen. Es hilft!" ------ ("excellent musicians, presenting a passionate, masterful and funny show that never gets boring. Wonderful music and comedy meets slapstick, parody and black humour … what a mixture! Playful, lively and lighthearted, full of fun and joy, a great parodistic and heartwarming political incorrectness and a wonderful moving and stirring music … If anybody should have forgotten how to laugh and enjoy his life, he should come to this show – it helps!") A. Falk, (New Generation Theater, Hamburg, Feb 2018)

"a riot of colour, with innumerable changes of ridiculous sub-clown costumes throughout ... and the array of instruments is colossal ... but what impresses most is the sheer energy, skill and versatility of the musicianship – driving the show along to its faster and faster, and dafter and dafter climax. Lots of fun." John Christopher Wood (Rondo Theatre, Bath Comedy Festival, April 2017)

"What was impressive was the sheer variety of what was on offer. We enjoyed a constant battery of humour ... the band’s exceptional musical skills .... a tremendous diversity of music. The long standing ovation at the end of the concert was testament to the fact that the large audience had experienced an evening of pure enjoyment" Robin Curtis (Holy Trinity Church, Broadstairs, Feb 2017)
