Here are some of the comments we have received recently:




Thank you for the wonderful concert at our church on Sat 21st October. We all enjoyed it so much and several people asked   if the choir could sing for us again!    The choice of songs was varied and very well performed and the introductions and stories by the compere were so amusing it kept us all very well entertained and we didn't want it to end.  It was probably the best concert we've had in our church

Margaret Foster, Verger of St Michael's Church, Alvaston, Derby.  2nd November 2017


Must keep an eye on your Web Site. I need to know when I can see you all
again - you were fantastic.

We must have you back here again soon, perhaps on your own (YY) next
time. How do you all 'do it'

What an accomplished group of singers

Audience members and the organiser of  joint concert with Somercotes Choral Society, April 25th,2017


You were great and made everyone smile.

Organiser of he Selston Music Festival. November 2016


Loved you Yesteryear. Really brilliant

Audience member at Selston Music Festival November 2016


You are totally happy with any style. You have lovely controlled singing with a most effective blend of voices.

Caroline Clemmow, Adjudicator at Selston music festival 28th November 2016.


Yesteryear are a wonderful choir...it was a privilege to sing with you all. You far exceeded my expectations which were already high. Those unable to attend missed a treat.

Malcolm Scott-Hill of Pye Hill MVC – joint concert in Ripley 15th Oct 2016


Everyone had a wonderful night & you were fantastic, a real inspiration. Thank you  

Comment from Tiff Wonham after joint concert with Rockapellas. May 2016


This thoroughly entertaining performance showed off the deep talent of the YesterYear singers. It  had humour, lightness and quality throughout. We totally understand why Gareth Malone chose to include you in his television series.

Comments from audience members at the Matlock United Reformed Church show, April 2016


Brilliantly original and thoroughly entertaining...so refreshing. Run to You was awesome , it made me cry.

Comments from audience members at the Grand Central Chorus 25th Anniversary show, April 2016


I was at the concert in East Leake and thought the choir was absolutely amazing, with such a great sound and a very varied programme that would suit most tastes in music.

Carolyn from East Leake after seeing YY at the charity raising concert - February 2016


My colleagues' reservations about a capella were blown away and you were acclaimed as our "best ever" entertainers.

Trevor Lewis – Organiser of Erewash Valley Woodturners Association Christmas Social – 2015


It was a brilliant 15 mins of fame (About the Naked Choir) . You are the ultimate Silver Foxes... a real tonic and a wonderful advert for choral singing.  Wishing you all the best in the future.

Royal Voluntary Service


People, you don't know what you are missing if you haven't heard these talented guys.

Wendy Frearson


Everyone who attended enjoyed every minute and thought the concert was wonderful .

Lynn Wilcockson - St Lukes Church


You know how much I have enjoyed working with you, its been a blast and we will miss you .

Gareth Malone - after YY left the Naked Choir


You are the absolute business as far as singing camaraderie goes .  Holly Marland


Thank you for making our evening so special Hullland & District WI - at 100 year Celebrations


Loved the last show wishing you all the best for the next one Jennifer Hunting - after Naked Choir Round 1


In my opinion, YesterYear are one of the most entertaining choirs in the Midlands. Les Dorey of Alfreton MVC at his wifes birthday celebrations in 2015


I have seen YesterYear 3 times this year and they just keep getting better and better they were marvellous. Pat Simpson (organiser) at Cancer Research concert in Ashbourne October 2014


YesterYear are not only very good singers they are ENTERTAINERS. MC introducing YY on Llandudno show


We saw you on the Saturday show and singing around town . You were so engaging and entertaining. A Sunday morning audience member Llandudno.


I guess that you guys must have been together for a long time because you played off each other so well. You cannot choreograph that kind of mateyness. It was brilliant to watch! Audience member who saw us in the barbershop class


You boys should get yourself into The Llangollen Eisteddfod ...you would do really well. A member of the winning Male Voice Choir


You were absolutely fantastic - I truly cannot thank you enough for supporting us and for the beautiful music before dinner. People wanted you to stay all evening to sing which is a nice compliment! The total raised was 4000 and we couldn't have done it without you! I will happily recommend you to anyone, and would also be delighted to work with you again in the future.

You were fantastic - an AWESOME performance, in the bride's terms!!  So many people asked how we had found you - you made the evening for us, and it was certainly an occasion to remember. Many, many thanks - I am now thinking of events where I can invite you back to!! Please pass on thanks to all the guys - your fan club has increased by at least 90!!!! Yvonne Bower


I would like to express my sincere thanks for the splendid evening's entertainment you provided for us...You all put such a lot of effort and energy into the evening which helped make it such a successful event. Everyone we spoke to said how much they had enjoyed the singing and the old- fashioned humour of your compere. It was a truly memorable evening. Jan Gaskell, Chair - Charnwood Branch of Cancer Research UK

Seeing YesterYear live was possibly the highlight of my whole year Katherine Cory on Twitter - after our appearance at Pennyfest3 at the Silk Mill Museum on Sunday 11th December 2011


I thoroughly enjoyed YesterYear's performance at The Belfry when you entertained the Long Eaton Twinning Association and their French and German guests. I am sure the club I belong to in Attenborough would love to hear you. Norma Carless


We do not often have the good fortune to be entertained by such a class act as YesterYear and I would regard a concert by you as a special occasion. Chilwell Ladies Club


Thanks very, very much for coming to entertain us on Saturday . Everyone really enjoyed it and I have received many compliments on your behalf. We hope to have you back again sometime soon.

YesterYear thank-you for performing free of charge at last night Valentine's meal for our diners. We had some excellent feedback and we were 'over the moon' with your performance. People said, 'You had made the night that extra bit special' and that your choice of songs was most appropriate. Manager Marquis of Ormonde Codnor
