RTE broadcasting personality Ryan Tubridy has occasionally been in the audience on a Monday night. After his first visit, he wrote in his Sunday World column "Why doesn't Dublin have anything like this? An unfortgetable night out with one of the best sounding bands I have ever heard ". Below are some of the things other people are saying about us:
"Went to three straight Monday nights at Busker Brownes this July. Wonderful. My best experience in Galway. I look forward to next July and three more Monday nights at Buskers. The band is tight and swings. Vocals are wonderful. Selection of tunes is terrific." Rick W.
"HOW DO YOU DO i just want to thank you. the band members .the vocalists the entire organisation for all those most enjoyable monday nights music its just fantastic .if gives a person a great boost on monday as we face into a new week ... we may be broke but we are rich in great music and your members do it all free of charge .its a great happy band and last mondays nights drum solo wow .the numbers played to total perfection and your customers all of them realy enjoy .thank you" Peter W.
"... Everyone I talked to commented on the band. I remember being impressed on the day but I didn't appreciate it fully because there was so much going on. When we watched our wedding video back yesterday, we couldn't believe how good it sounded. The hairs were standing on the back of our necks ..." Valerie B.
"I heard your band in a Busker Browns last Monday. You guys are awesome! Better than the bands we dance to at home." Kirsten.
"The big band was the perfect touch. You looked and sounded amazing." Johnathan N.

The legendry Sonny Knowles came to BarCuba to watch the band on his birthday,but he was in for a surprise because Mischa Langemeijer had called in sick and Sonny was persuaded to sit in at second alto. He had the time of his life and the crowd loved him. He was playing with a borrowed sax and borrowed glasses and afterwards said" that is the best birthday present I have ever had and the best band I have ever played with".
Thanks for sitting in Sonny and you can come back anytime.
