nobody has mentioned these guys yet, we thought they did a sterling job in a very difficult slot, they connected with and engaged the audience and their music was perfect for that lunchtime chilling out feeling, they had G and I laughing and almost crying.
 i'd like to hear more of them.  

it'll be fine.......

Agree - thought they engaged well with plenty of humour and good songs. Will also investigate more

Gosh yes - we loved them! If they ever come to Cardiff I'd definitely go and see them again.

Yes, funny and good.  Not sure I'd buy a CD, but thought they did a good job in that slot, and I could happily have had longer of them and a bit less of the next act.

They were very enjoyable.  We saw them later at the Radio Oxford stand where they entertained a large crowd with great good humour.

The Four of Us are a good band - they come over as very nice chaps.
I saw them in Bath on the WinTour and felt that there was rather too much chat and introduction inbetween the fine songs.
(Mind you in Bath I was excitedly anticipating Saving Grace, so that might have contributed to my impatience!)

Loved these guys, actually thought the chat to playing ratio was spot on and the solution was for them to have had a longer slot...

Oh well maybe next time.

Very enjoyable. Seemed nice chaps. I found the comments about The Troubles particularly poignant, and relevant now.
