“They kept a mixed age, international audience thoroughly entertained during both one-hour sets”Michael Brooks - International Corprate Event, Tanners London
“5/5. They were four very charming and personable young men, who we had some dealings with before the event, in terms of set up and tech stuff. On the day they arrived and quietly set up, with no demands and were very grateful to us for all the support they needed. They played really well and everyone on the night had a great time! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. They were a pleasure to have at what was a very special evening for us, celebrating the Haslemere Thespians 80th year.”Jenny Manville - Private Party, The Haslemere Hall, Haslemere
“The Thamesmen at Writtle University College tonight were awesome! Their set was fantastic and really well produced which was great to hear - hopefully they'll return at some point!”Eilisch Hopkins - Freshers Night, Writtle University College, Chelmsford
