What the organisers said :

"Thank you all so much for a splendid evening !!!! A zany show full of fun ... everybody is asking how you keep going for the whole performance and can still smile at the end... your energy is unbounding." Ian Smith (Organiser, All Soul's Church, Folkestone, Oct 2022)

"...a great show. It was a highlight of mine for the year..." Richie Cawley (Manager, Penzance Acorn Theatre, Oct 2018)

"really funny, fast and happy... lots of fun..." Ann Harding, (Arts co-ordinator, Victoria Hall, Settle, Oct 2018)
"I love your band. Great fun!" Rick Wakeman (Water Rats Ball, Grosvenor House, London, Nov 2014)
"a fireworks first-class musical comedy show. A little reminiscent of Monty Python. An unforgettable evening. They'll be welcomed back!" C Gugger (Director, New Generation Theatre, Hamburg, Jan 2014)
"The LPSO are an unsurpassed show-band with different genres of music and a totally crazy delivery on stage - the smiles in the audience are held firmly during the entire concert - and the laughter never ends!" Jørgen Christensen (Director, Slangerup Jazz Festival, Denmark, Aug 2013)
"An amazing show ... outrageous antics on stage, silly costumes, musical versatility and ability to read the audience. A night of fun, frivolity, energy and hilarity together with amazing musical dexterity." H Fletcher (Organiser, Mylor Bridge Hall, Nov 2011)
"Zany madcappery with faultless musicianship" Ian McGlynn (Artistic Director, Rondo Theatre, Bath, March 2009)

What the journalists wrote :

"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)
"Laughing and laughing tears." S Torsteinsdottir (Odda Blues Festival, Norway, Sept 2012)
