“A joyful trip down memory lane”

Mark Taylor, Record Collector Giants of Rock review 2022

Always a challenge to replace their late lead singer Paul Young (also Mike and the Mechanics), who tragically died in 2000, they have finally found the perfect voice in Barry James Thomas, and now press on to a new era with a show which brings together the great hits of the past with the matured and excellent musicianship of the present. 

Sad Café fans have warmly and enthusiastically embraced the new line up as the shows continue to bring new and existing fans together to share their love for this incredible band and their music.
