Here's a sample review of one of our performances. This one was published in the Theatre Arts Review section of the Surrey Advertiser in its 25th March issue about our gig at the Cranleigh Arts Centre the previous weekend.

Tamla Tigers pack a punch!

A touch of motor city, USA, arrived downtown Cranleigh on Saturday night when the home-grown Tamla Tigers arrived at the village's Art Centre with their soul review.

The eight-piece outfit pack in the audiences when they play pubs in the area and it was easy to see why.

Sarah packed a punch as the band tore their way through some of the choicest cuts to emerge from Detroit, Atlanta and Memphis - and places further afield.

Rescue Me, Midnight Hour, Respect, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, I Just Want To Make Love To You, My Guy, a glorious Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher and Mustang Sally were all there, as well as a couple of Beatles numbers - Come Together and Let It Be.

They encored with Robert Palmer's Addicted To Love which for me didn't really work. But that's just a minor quibble, as this was a night to soak up loads of familiar sounds, excellently played, and move to the rhythms. And all the profits from the gig went to Cancer Research, too.
