'I’ve seen Pauline and the Imaginary Friends perform several times now and their show is always full of energy and fun. Pauline has great vocals with a quirky style that is engaging and entertaining, and her adaptations of the songs are unique and interesting.’ Shelle Luscombe, event host
'We thoroughly enjoyed your music. You are all exceptionally talented and played such a broad range of songs – something for everyone. We look forward to hearing you perform again. Thank you for a GREAT night at the Kingston Arts Launch Party.' Aine Lark (Kingston Arts Launch Party)
'Pauline and The Imaginary Friends played on stage at our Teddington Christmas Lights Up event and were fantastic. I booked them very last minute as the event was initially cancelled due to lack of funds which were then raised by local residents. They were exceptionally professional and did the perfect set to entertain people of all ages. The combination of Pauline’s fabulous voice and the music accompaniment from Gareth and Matt is the perfect recipe for any event. We loved their energy and how they got the crowd dancing.' Lisa Wyborn (Teddington Christmas Lights Up)
