"What a cracking night of Northern Soul we had yesterday. Sarah's dazzling voice and stage presence, and a top-class band doing full justice to 30+ soul classics and a bit of bonus ska as well! Virtuoso horn trio, tight rhythm section, crisp Fred Perrys! One of the best nights we've had here at the town hall, come back soon!!! ... The band were even tighter than last year. Sarah on fire and an audience totally up for it.
