“…like Leunig with a ukulele”  http://reneesearles.com

Tyrone rocks the ukelele; he sure knows his material and has masterful comedic timing. nothingeverhappensinbrisbane

“Few ukulele duos are as personable and quirky as Brisbane, Australia’s Tyrone and Lesley” Ukulelemag

…the two were just pure magic together… it would be a sin to miss it. thecreativeissue

…their set exuded optimism… warm our hearts and make our stomachs ache with laughter…a gentle and loveable hour of amusing music… I’m excited to see where this charming pair goes next… downstagediscernments           

A unique and adorable production theupsidenews

this show carries a charm that has you humming the tunes all the way home. Stage Whispers

“Tyrone and Lesley are a uniquely Australian duo – a little bit Lano and Woodley, a little bit Kransky Sisters, a little bit Franciscus Henri … Their jaunty, whimsical repertoire often invites you to up gentler, sepia times you weren’t alive for, encapsulating the highs and lows of human existence.” Cecile Blackmore,Creativedrinks.com

“their lyrical act is a heart-warming series of musical vignettes.” Ralph Shaw

‘…Ukulele Heart is full of inspired silliness…Whether you’re eight or 80, Ukulele Heart will make you smile.’ Kamuke Ukulele Magazine Issue 4 Sept 2012

Gentlemen Songsters is like the big brother to Ukulele Heart… More mature in its tone… ‘All Dressed Up’ can be seen as an analogy for the entire record – inspired by tunes from the 1930’s, it’s a swinging dance anthem that evokes images of Tyrone and Lesley in tuxedos, drinking martinis, and staying up way past their bedtime. Kamuke Magazine Issue 7, May 2014

“…Tyrone, and his beautiful, psychologically rich show Bear with Me.” Sally Chance http://ootb127.blogspot.com.au/

…sweetly hilarious songs… http://theukuleleentertainer.blogspot.com.au/

…consummately performed… a wealth of riches hidden in this theatrical mountain… a kind of magic ticket to another world: imaginative, fun and visually striking. Nigel Pearn, Review of Ukulele Mekulele, Lowdown Magazine 2005

“Bear with me was one of the best, most well thought out shows I have ever attended. Absolutely brilliant!” Patron comments, ‘Bear with Me’, Out of the Box, June 2012 QPAC

Tyrone…from Brisbane made a strong impression with his unique brand of performance art. He did four or five songs on his uke whilst showing slides of dog shows and Aussie suburbia from the 1960s! It was as strange as it sounds, but in a funny way it worked. Onya, Tyrone! Ukulele Guild of Hawaii

…a fascinating performance from the Brisbane artist, combining songs, slideshow, comedy and, of course, uke. http://bettypaginated.blogspot.com.au/2006/09/review-ukulele-land-iii-saturday-sept.html
