American reviewer Scott Yanow wrote

“The Pasadena Roof Orchestra presents a fun concert, with the emphasis on hot dance tunes of the era. The authentic sound of the band, the superior repertoire, and some inspired humour make this a fun show.”

“There would be dancing to a very high standard to the 20’s and 30’s sound of the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, until a Scott Fitzgerald dawn touched the windows”

Angela Hurth , my perfect day, The Times.

“We were delighted with the Orchestra’s performance, guests enjoyed the evening, especially the music, which created a lively ambience and a perfect atmosphere to celebrate such a great film”

The English patient charity gala dinner

“Obviously the music was the centre of the night’s activities and so many people have spoken to me both on the night and since, to say how much they enjoyed the performance of the orchestra. Indeed the evidence was there for all to see because the floor was full throughout the time you were playing”

Jeffrey Rose, Chairman on the RAC Centenary Balls

“We were so grateful to the orchestra for playing so wonderfully at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Ball. We had so many comments from the guests saying how much they enjoyed the music. The floor was crammed which was all we could have asked for”

Sally Renny, Trust Events Manager

“The party seemed to be a huge success, and I think your music was one of the main reasons for this.”

Lady Elizabeth Anson Party Planners

“One of the best bands in the world for dancing”

Harpers and Queen

“Everyone was thrilled with your performance and I myself thoroughly enjoyed the professionalism and musicianship you all exuded!”

Mike Batt

“This soothing musical massage sends you back to a time when the world was a simpler and gentler place. The charm of the musical offerings is matched by the sophisticated musical artistry of the instrumentalists, all of whom make masterful playing look easy. On top of that, keeping everything running smoothly, and providing pleasant, easy vocals, Duncan Galloway is a perfect host. It’s important for musical heritage that we keep alive the easy-going melodies of the inter-war years and the Pasadena Roof Orchestra do it so well, they deserve to be in business for at least another forty-odd years. A delightful show – highly recommended.”
