"Cosmic Carnival 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."

"Over the two nights we worked with Cosmic Carnival 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 barnstorming 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."

"I was very privileged to see Cosmic Carnival 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!!"
