"The Boys From Burnley show is a real breath of fresh air on the traditional After Dinner circuit and provides great entertainment in any Sporting environment. Steve Kindon is now a lot easier to catch now than he was in the mid 1970's!"
NOBBY STILES MBE
"I can't remember the last time I've laughed as much when sat on the top table. The two lads from Burnley have come up with a new concept that the Dinner circuit has been waiting for for many years."
"This is a brilliant idea for any organisation looking to 'freshen-up' their annual Sportsman's Dinner"
WILLIE JOHN MCBRIDE
"Neither of them could play football so it must be nice to discover, in your 50's, something that you're good at."
"As a big Burnley fan I've watched both of them play, so it's great to see them turn their hand to a totally original interpretation of an After Dinner performance"
"We had our highest bar takings in years. The Burnley Boys put on a great show."
THE MANAGER - THE ROXBOROUGH HOTEL - EDINBURGH
"I've had so many calls asking 'When are they back again' they really won the audience over. I thought I'd seen everything but this concept is a great change from a traditional Sportsman's Dinner."

"The room was still packed for two hours after the Burnley lads were on their way home. I've no idea how we can follow that next year."
TOM JOHNSON - THE GROSVENOR HOUSE HOTEL LONDON
"Our main Sponsors and top table guests all rang the next day to say how much they had enjoyed the company of the Burnley Boys. Not only are they great entertainers but they understand the importance of mixing with our special guests."
