SIMON GOODALL AND BOURNE AGAIN SHADOWS 2016
"An outstanding performance and the true emulation of the original act.’
David & Chrissie, Wargrave
"Outstanding performers ……. a joy to watch!"
Pauline & Bill, Shiplake
"Highly recommended to not just fans of Cliff and The Shadows……… thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining"
Roy & Glynis, Emmer Green
"……. a tremendous evening. Not only are they excellent musicians but they add such excitement to the performance. …….; music just as I remember it, only better."
Sue & Nick, Shiplake
"The music you created sounded incredibly authentic and brought back many memories of the early sixties."
Martin & Anita, Charvil
"First class, feels like you are in a room with the Shadows"
Ruth & Tom, South Oxfordshire
"Simon’s the first person I’ve heard who I think actually sounds like me. It’s uncanny! When my manager played me the songs from Simon’s tribute album, I could have sworn Simon had sampled my vocals – you’ve done such a fantastic double……… Simon is without doubt the best "Cliff Soundalike" in the business."
Sir Cliff Richard
"There are several Shadows tributes out there, and one or two of them are pretty good - but I've never heard a band that completely nails the whole sound with vocals too . . . until now. I have to say that this blew me away. The emulation of the Shadows sound is spot on, and the 'Cliff' vocals are uncanny. I feel qualified to make that statement having worked with Cliff throughout the 90s as part of his band. This is as close as it gets!"
Pete Lincoln – Cliff Richard Band, Shakin Stevens, Sailor, The Sweet
"I really thought I was listening to a recording of Cliff and the guys! How good is that?"
Bob Henrit – Adam Faith, Argent, Don McLean, The Kinks
"Chris & the chaps have done a super job of recreating 'that' sound - all very fine & groovy, lads!"
Dave Mattacks, formerly Fairport Convention, The Albion Band, Steeleye Span, Mary Chapin Carpenter
"The band recreates the classic Shadows sound with uncanny accuracy and authority. The distinctive rich, 'liquid' guitar tones and precise drum work display an impressive authenticity. The vocals, too, are of Cliff-tastic quality! At times, one could almost be listening to alternative 'takes' of the original recordings..."
Mark Hankins, formerly of The New Seekers and The Heroes
"This band’s tribute to the Shadows is not only faithful, but immaculate. Close your eyes and it could be 1960. It's the real deal, and shouldn't be missed"
Mike Hurst – The Springfields, Record Producer for Cat Stevens,
The Move, Showaddywaddy, Manfred Mann and PP Arnold
"The band performs with an authentic tight sound played with fantastic attention to detail, skill and fun. And with Simon's amazingly realistic Cliff vocals, there's surely no better tribute.”
Paul Amos – guitarist, singer, songwriter, Sussex
"A very credible Shads tribute. These guys have obviously listened to the records and copied the originals recordings very well to produce a very authentic sound. Any Shads fan, which I am, will love these guys. And as for the Cliff soundalike, if I heard your guy singing an unknown song on the radio I’d think it was a new Cliff single."
Peter Phipps - formerly of The Batchelors and The UK Beach Boys
"I was completely gobsmacked with the show. First class musicians playing all my favourite Shadows tracks and one or two that I hadn't been aware of previously. As my old friend Pete Lincoln said the band completely nailed the Shadows sound and the professionalism of the whole show was a joy.’"
Ric Lee, Ten Years After and Woodstock veteran!
"Just listened to Simon Goodall and The Bourne Again Shadows. Excellent - sounds uncannily like Cliff and nice playing from the band too. Well worth a listen."
Clem Cattini - Johnny Kidd and The Pirates, The Tornados, Top of The Pops Orchestra and Cliff Richard
"The Mill at Sonning Theatre books about 30 concerts a year mainly on Sunday evenings. We have groups such as 'The Glenn Miller Orchestra; 'Searchers'; 'The Real Thing' & 'The Bourne Again Shadows' which has sold out twice for us here at The Mill two months before the booked date! This year due to demand I have booked the group twice. A very professional show which makes for a memorable evening which keeps the customers returning."
David Vass - General Manager, The Mill at Sonning
"Our audience loved the 'Simon Goodall and The Bourne Again Shadows' gig! The atmosphere on the evening was terrific and we had lots of positive feedback from those who attended including one customer who emailed afterwards to thank me for booking them saying that she, "thoroughly enjoyed the music, the performance and their enthusiasm"."
Emma Bangham - Programme Manger, Number 8 Theatre, Pershore
"The die-hard Cliff fans in the audience were in raptures…..and the sound of The Bourne Again Shadows was incredible….. the nuances of the original tracks were all there."
Brian Clements - former keyboardist from Revelation (Midlands function band in the 70s)
