Forming part of the Bury Festival this new, re-formed or maybe even re-incarnated group of the 80s certainly provided a most stunning performance. Their style of swing and original songs came across in a most casual and definitely laid-back manner.

It was impossible not to tap your feet or even more as they went through so many well-known numbers including Boogie Nights, Sh Boom, Your Feet's Too Big, Sweet Talkin' Guy, Blue Skies, Sunny Side of the Street, just for starters. Even if you heard them first time round before they disbanded in 1987 it's definitely worth hearing them again today.

Their style is that of barbershop harmony but with both sexes involved in the singing. So they all have individual styles, huge talent yet fused together perfectly. You will go home singing and perhaps even dancing to their music.
