audience reviews

Martin Laurance
Absolutely fantastic! I had only heard a small amount about Mark but this hits the spot perfectly. I always used to wonder what Orbitals early stuff would have sounded like, played by an orchestra like this with guitars and synths. This performance is a perfect way of mixing up everything thats good and classy about music in a global fashion. Mark Ronson is a genius with an imaginative ear for the possible!

Dilly Cooke
Mark Ronson is God in disguise. The show was absolutely fantastic with great guests and the most amazing musical background(bbc orchestra). When are you going to release this on DVD to buy. Major highlights were Alex Grenwald because he is so cool and a dream to look at, Marvellous Merriweather, The Charlatans, Candi singing Sunny (when is that going to be released?) and Charlie Waller singing his version of back to black, ACE. Who needs Amy and Lily, their loss. Well done Mr Ronson you've proved yet again that your the best producer/mixer in the world. Love Ya!!!!!! Dilly.
