Testimonials and reviews

"First time I've seen these guys at a proper show - absolutely brilliant and the lead guitarist has that sound spot on!"
Vice Chairman - Friends of The Shadows Guitar Club - August 2013

"Hi, just to say again a really big thank you for such a terrific peformance by the band on Saturday evening. Everyone I have spoken with said what a great night it was, and the choice of songs and lighting throughout were fantastic - please send my appreciation to Dick, he did a great job with the lighting. I know that everyone who attended really enjoyed themselves and I hope that everyone in the band, and your guests, did too. Please also give Julian a personal word of thanks from me - I know a successful evening by any band is a collective thing but he went out of his way to be helpful and to make the entire performance the success it was - his own enthusiasm and performance as Cliff was exceptional."
Pitsea Mount Community Association - Chairmans Comment - September 2013

"The Rich Clifford night was so much fun. The band managed a fine line between lots of fun, the Shadow's walk and great musicianship. Waldegraves was packed with a sell out of two hundred and fifty tickets. The evening started with a bang, actually a siren, to introduce the band. Many well known faces danced away to well remembered numbers from the past, some dressed in Cliff Richard fan T shirts!"
Review by Mersea Life (Magazine - April 2012, Pg 44)

"Just to say thank you for a brilliant night. It went very, very well and I have had nothing but good comments. Thanks to Rich Clifford and the Young Once for a great show and Julian for helping with the presentation."
Chairman - ECKO Club Presentastion Night - November 2013
