The Balloon Animals

The Balloon Animals were THE event on Friday night. With the songs they played they got even the older ones, with the way they played they got the younger ones, and with their looks the rest. Literally everyone asked me how I found them.

The Balloon Animals

I wanted to say how much Jo, I and I believe the rest of the party enjoyed your show last night. It was superb and you demonstrated so well your love for the music and to make it such a great evening for us.

Truly my thanks to you, Steve, Pembroke and Sam - such a nice bunch of lads.

The Balloon Animals

Thanks so much! You had the crowd in the palm of your hand. You have had so many compliments, all the guests we're talking about the music the next day. Good luck, I hope we see you playing again soon

The Balloon Animals

Over the two nights we worked with Cosmic Balloon they became part of the Tullamore D.E.W. family. I was incredibly impressed by their professionalism, flexibility, musicianship and their passion for what they do. They delivered two barn storming performances, stayed on longer than they should and even learned a new tune for us, which was outstanding. I would work with them again tomorrow and recommend them to anyone looking for an accomplished band who will rock the house.

The Balloon Animals

The Balloon Animals were amazing! They played mostly covers and often sounded better than the original! Fantastic singing and playing, a really tight group of excellent musicians who really seem to enjoy playing together. Everyone was dancing and woo-ing - couldn't have been better. Thanks guys!

The Balloon Animals

I was very privileged to see The Balloon Animals headline the Camden Town Brewery 'Tank Party', having recently discovered Pembroke Tenneson recently in my home town. They went down A STORM...!! This band seriously ooze talent and good times... Their covers were incredible - lively and powerful with their own twist. The whole crowd were completely enraptured - EVERYONE was singing and smiling...! Simply awesome. A real joy. :) Thanks for a great evening. Looking forward to MORE...!!
