“Stoke singer Pete Shirley has just released his debut album Sunset Katy and other stories. The old-style folk singer had put together a collection of 14 songs and the album is available through his site. The album features Alan Whitmore, Esther Brennan, Ciaran Algar, Adrian Crosbie, Dan Hulme and Purcy Flaherty. Pete Shirley is well worth a mention. He has been well received at the Newhampton Folk Club He opened with Working Day a traditional ballad of every day life which was accented really nicely with his precise guitar playing. Shirley followed this with a softer song Sunset Katie in which he displayed an endearing, old fashioned quality to his voice which was nicely accented by his gentle picking on his guitar. Rather appropriately for Remembrance weekend his next offering was Another Man's Sky which was a song about war and he cleverly fused it with the old spiritual Down by the Riverside (Study War No More).”

“Voulez Vous – Mad About ABBA Tour. “What a show, the audience loved it, our team loved it and they will be coming back!””

Glyn Jackson (Centre Manager) - Drayton Festival Centre

“Voulez Vous – 40 Years of Waterloo Anniversary Tour. . Just a note to say that last night’s show at Horsham was a knock-out. ABBA-solutely fabulous and all the audience thought so too. We were excited all the time, singing, clapping and waving arms. During the second half the only person sitting down, that I could see, was an old lady with very weak legs who was crying because she was excited but couldn’t join in as she wanted. Well done for giving a cuddle to the young lady with disabilities. That made her evening even more special. It was nice to able to talk to you afterwards. I think more performers should try to meet their audience. See you again soon, I hope. Thank you for the music! David”

“Hello, a big thank you to all the band for an amazing evening in, Hunstanton! You are very professional and good at what you do to give us ABBA fans a good night out!

“Manhattan Stroll now available to download in Poland!! Check it out!!”

“Listening to the beautiful lyrics and awesome vocals in the exciting new album 'Manhattan Stroll' by Alan Whitmore made me imagine I was really there! Fresh coffee, New York City, world cultures, walking alongside the yellow taxis and feeling the atmosphere. Enjoying the nice stroll, lots off different and interesting styles on this album all with nice pop melodies ad unusual production, like it :-) Beautiful vocal harmonies, Alan has produced some outstandingly good songs, vocals and arrangements. I thoroughly enjoyed listening. Superb stuff! The title track Manhattan Stroll is a lovely, bouncy piece that greets the listener with a warm invitation to explore your musical world. Great lyrics and full, well-crafted songwriting supported by well-executed performance and strong production! This is a really strong package of eclectic, hook-driven poptastic tunes..very tasty indeed! ”

“So, anyway, the guy said to me... erm "You absolute keyboard wizard you!" as he passed at the top of a high staircase at the end of the gig while I was struggling to carry the heaviest piano case in world history and to top it off the bulb at the top of the staircase had blown. "I said thanks to my latest fan as he walked away and left me there in the dark!" ”
