A band so tightly knitted together with faultless musicians and stunning vocals made for an album quality performance packed full of all the big hits from the movie and some other soul songs thrown in too. Exactly what you’d expect from a band like them. A full dance floor and a rapturous reaction from the guests; “That was pure soul, just fantastic”. Very appreciative on and off stage of all the support and everything the venue/warner have provided them. A top-class performance. Please pass on our HUGE thanks to everyone involved. I’ve worked with some of the best acts in the business from Katherine Jenkins and Madness to Status Quo and McFly but I’ve never been so personally entertained or had so many fabulous comments from festival goers as I experienced with The Stars From The Commitments. The energy, fun and musical skills displayed by The Stars From The Commitments were second to none. You have to see these guys live!'
