Festival testimonials:

A great bunch of guys and a pleasure to work with. Easy set up and a professional approach.  They had the crowd bouncing from the first song and kept them superbly entertained right through to the finale of their sublime reworking of Umbrella.  Quite different to anything else out there at the moment and all the better for it.
Graham Firth, Bearded Theory South

The Farleys are slick, professional, well mannered musicians who know how to put on a damn good show. The most entertaining thing since the invention of the computer game!
James Dorset, Guilfest (Acoustic Stage)

This band is on fire at the moment & fill every venue that they play.  They’ve performed for me twice & have sold out of CDs on both occasions. They bring a smile to everyone’s faces & are the top ‘feel good’ Party Band in this area.
Trevor Rapson, Capel Festival
