“ A five -piece groove machine ” “ As a live act, these guys are a must see ” “Oxo Cubans play cabaret from the asylum.....the most serious fun you’re likely to experience in a night-club all year” “They shun the convention of girl leaves boy and boy writes song”

Tightly arranged Slightly deranged

Watch your grandparents’ grins grow as they cajole chuckles from the cheeks of children and make musical grooves for smooth movers while busking in bus stops with baby boomers.
