    "We were in Blackpool 17th July 2013, and went to see what we thought what was a band that were impersonators like they have abroad, and have to say how impressed we were when we saw and heard yourselves....really had a good night music wise at the North Pier and thought that your music was fantastic....thanks for all the memories from the 60' really was great night."

    "Excellent couple of sets from you at Seagulls in Brean. You made the wife's weekend for her, first time we have seen you and hopefully will not be the last. "

    "We were at a superb 'Sixties Special' on Valentines Night at Timperley Conservative Club. We'd seen The Kasuals before at the Hilton Hotel, Blackpool.
    The Kasuals are a really impressive band - talented musicians, smart in their shiny suits and ever ready to engage in friendly 'banter' with the audience.
    It's easy to see why they're developing a reputation for quality entertainment as they bring back happy memories of the Sixties, a golden age in UK music.
    Thanks for coming to Timperley last Thursday - lots of people are looking forward to your next visit!"

    "Saw you on Friday night at the Savoy Hotel 60s weekend, for my money you were the best band of the weekend by a country mile. Great sound, smart and very PRO!!!
    Will be watching you again next year at Whitby, let’s hope the rest of the bands take a leaf out of your book.

    Love Paula x"

    "Great band I play their music regularly on my show on BBC Radio Lancashire. They look the part, sound great and if you book them or see them you will have a great night."

    "Myself and the rest of our guests thought you were an excellent choice for our Owners Club party up here in Edinburgh. The music you played was just as we had hoped, you even played some requests that were shouted out. Well done to your bass player for going on to lead guitar and playing the Shadows request that you got. We surely hope you're booked back for next year’s party."

    "Spoke to you at Alverston Hall at Christmas. Thought the band looked and sounded fabulous. Thanks for a wonderful night."

    "Watched the Kasuals at Butlins, Bognor Regis a few months ago, really really good band with plenty of wonderful songs. They played to a full house on centre stage doing the middle spot in between Bev Bevans the Move and Dozy Beaky Mick and Titch.

    This band definitely held their own and should be worthy regulars on the Butlins 60s scene, come on Butlins book this band more often.

    Hope to see you on the circuit soon,

    Sandy xx"
