The Pigeon Detectives were amazing! I've been dying to see them for months, but none of my mates would come & see them cause they hadn't heard of them (sad losers!) Can't believe how much energy the lead singer had, to say it was 1.30pm he rocked it like they were headlining at night!*THE NEXT BIG THING*

Debbie Slater

Hi,This has been the 4th time I've seen the Pigeons and they never fail to impress. I went with my sister who had not heard of them before, she left saying they were her highlight. With excellent energy and an even better set list they can only expect to grow. Can't wait to see their home town gig next week.

Daniel Slepertas
Just got back from the Big Weekend. The Detectives were awesome, definitely thought they should have been further up the set list for the INMWT Stage! 10/10. Awesome band.
