Just wanted to say what a fantastic show at Hartlepool Town Hall -
Unbelievable playing last night -
Once again you showed why you are the number 1 Tribute. Your Animals show was some of the finest musicianship I've heard ever. Attention to detail was astounding and I was close enough to now happily play the chords to Dogs AT LAST! Cheers! Kenny Dalton
I am currently working on Tyneside and several of us attended your South Shields show last week. I had heard great things about you guys but honestly -
I have to say after seeing your Customs House show what a fantastic night was had by all -
Hi Shine On -
WOW!! I CAN FIND NO OTHER WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE SHOW I'VE JUST WITNESSED AT THE CUSTOMS HOUSE. INCREDIBLE PLAYING AND SUPERB VALUE FOR MONEY. 3 HOURS ONSTAGE -
Words fail me/us to accurately describe your performance last night; incredible does not do it justice. We are all coming up to the Customs House on March 9th. Hats off to you all. Daniel & Barbara Becker
PIGS! Supeeeeerbbbbbbb! Cant wait to hear the rest of the Animals album, my personal favourite and often overlooked! Only Shine On could pull it off and you certainly did that last night. See you in Redcar in May! K Dowding
I have seen the band on 3 occasions now but last night was the best so far. As a guitar player of many years I really appreciate the work that Ted and Fletch put in during the gig -
You guys outdid yourselves last night -
After witnessing yet another new Floyd "tribute" recently, I felt I should write and say exactly how much Shine On mean to all us true Floyd fans; you are the only Tribute who actually seem to have a clue as to what Pink Floyd were about -
Your 3 Tuns show was a spectacular feat -
Cant wait for your Redcar Bowl Show in May -
Thank you for making 2006 so very special for all PF fans. More!!! Fiona & Ian McKay
I was not a huge Pink Floyd fan when I saw you guys at Helmsly this year -
Cant believe how well you guys played as a 5 piece on Friday -
There is only 1 Pink Floyd and after the death of Syd Barrett recently, we will never see them again. There are many "tributes" to Pink Floyd -
Wanted to write and congratulate you guys on an outstanding live show at Redcar Bowl in November (2006). Having experienced the band on several occasions now I can say hand on heart this was your best show yet. We CANNOT WAIT for the Customs House in March as we have already secured tickets well in advance. More! More! More and More! Eddie Statten
Having worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years I wanted to thank the members of Shine on for making an old hippy very happy. Your Best of 2005 DVD is an astonishing record of your tribute to my favourite band of all time. John Constantine
Once again you lads and lasses left us spellbound at Helmsley. After your first show in 2004 we vowed to see you again and you did not disappoint when we did so! I dont know how you manage to achieve what you do -
Just downloaded all of your videos from Google -
We have made it our business to see 4 or 5 PF tribs, yourselves included, in 2006. Having seen the real thing on several occasions we are now in a position to share our thoughts. Best Band ever: Pink Floyd. Second best band ever: Shine On. Jimmy Harrison Geoffrey Cardew & Alistair Brooks combined age 146!
The most exciting night out we've had in years -
Saw you guys at Middlesbrough Theatre, am coming to Dolphin Centre as well. Incredible show -
Saw you guys at the Office -
Kev & Shauna Cassidy
Met up with you at the Office and am coming to Darlington and Hartlepool. I agree with the general consensus -
MY FAVE AT THE OFFICE WAS SORROW A VERY OVERLOOKED TRACK. THE BASS AND SYNTH PLAYED VERY WELL TOGETHER AND IT HAD MORE BOTTOM END THAN THAT FERGY WIFEY.
We think you guys rock! Have seen you 3 times so far -
Karen Black & Vanessa Stobart
JUST WANTED TO SAY YOU GUYS ARE FAR AND AWAY THE BEST FLOYD TRIBUTE I HAVE HEARD
Just wanted to say that was the most polished performance by a Band Ive seen in a long time. Great venue as well!!
Thankyou to Shine on for a great gig at the Three Tuns last week. I was at the gig and I can honestly say I was blown away. You guys are amazing; the work you have put in is plainly obvious to me ( and everyone else ).
As a musician myself, I pride myself that I understand the conditions of playing live and you guys really did a superb job.
Let me tell you that this Band are far and away the best Floyd outfit I have seen. I have now been to 4 gigs and am planning to attend EVERY gig they do this year.
Just wanted to say we thought your gig at darlington was MEGA!!! The other Floyd tribs may as well give up now. "Theres no sensation to compare with this..."
The friends I originally heard from about you guys, I believed were exaggerating. Now I think they didnt go far enough! Dark Side was spectacular to say the least but my favourite of the night has to be Sorrow, or High Hopes. Or Wish you were here. Or On the turning away. Or Mother. OK, I love them all!
Dave & Yvonne Shields
To me -
Made it to the Dolphin Centre and was absolutely blown away... you guys are without doubt the dogs bollocks!!! I was going to get my Aussie Floyd tickets for April but instead I bought 6 tickets for your City Hall show!!! Ive seen them twice and they are OK -
Gig was INCREDIBLE -
F*CK ME! I SAW PINK FLOYD IN HARTLEPOOL ON FRIDAY DOING A TRIBUTE TO SHINE ON. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE!!!
way to go Shine on you guys really showed how it should be done at Hartlepool the other night. Incredible stage show but wow the music was unbelievable -
It's no wonder you guys have the reputation you have -
We are now great fans of Shine On, having heard some wonderful things before experiencing you for ourselves. We only have one complaint: how come we didn't find you earlier?
Jim & Elaine Barber
SHINE ON -
Jan & Peter Hathaway
Thank you for a fantastic performance which I had the pleasure to watch in Hartlepool on 11 March. You were the "Pink Floyd" great likeness and sound. I could close my eyes and be at a real floyd gig. Great.
I have to say we agree completely with the other sentiments about the Town Hall gig... I saw Aussie floyd show in that very same venue a few years back and it pales by comparison to what we saw on Friday night. Your show is by far the best we have seen... the lasers and lights looked superb but even THEY paled next to the music which was soooooo good.
Philip & Karen White
The advance rumours were, for once, under stated -
Saw you all play at City Hall last Friday. One of the best gigs I've ever seen -
Excellent gig in Barrow last night, even though I was on First Aid duty and not supposed to be watching the show. Tommy (name with held on request)
Thank you so very much for last evening at the Town Hall Theatre -
hi there i just wondered if u had any plans to return to newcastle city hall soon i seen u the last time u where there and i must say u were better than australian pink floyd and off the wall im checking your web site all the time for new dates Nikki Roche
Wow!! Hello all just seen you for the second time at the Office south shields and again i was blown away .One of the hardest things i have ever done was to leave hyde park during live 8 BEFORE pink floyd took to the stage because the show over ran and my coach was gonna leave without me (ah regrets) but you made up for it on thursday night.Even better that you are all local people as well a real incentive for the younger and less experienced bands to go the extra mile (or three).Keep up the good work Graham Hartley
Just wanted to drop you a line thanking you so much for another stunning performance at Hartlepool.As a music lover and PF fan of 20 years+ I appreciate the devotion you guys put into your music. Absolutely awesome – I admire the way you won’t settle for second best. You recreate perfectly the spine tingling bars of which there are many. Peter Dixon
Having just returned home from your Cumby gig -
Unelievable night in Darlo last week -
I had heard all the reports but decided I had to see for myself. I should have listened. I thought my mates were being carried away by the booze and turkish woodbines. Actually I was sober through out and I am so glad -
Cant sing your praises high enough after last nights show at the (Hartlepool) Town Hall Theatre. I saw you at Helmsley but was absolutely stunned by this last show -
Just need to thank you guys for the very special show at Durham 3 days ago -
Wondrous display of all things Floyd tonight -
Just wanted to contact you and say how much we enjoyed your (Hull) City Hall show tonight. The sound was the best concert sound we have heard for years -
I missed your first appearance at helmsley due to alcohol but was determined to have something to remember this time around -
Hi Shine On! We have just been watching your videos on Google -
The Diamonds were beyond reproach in their performance of GREAT GIG IN THE SKY. However much you pay those girls its not enough. Dan Webster
Cant wait for you guys to come back to the City Hall -
