Glastonbury Success

No wonder Ed Balls, the former Labour Party Shadow Chancellor turned everyone’s favourite ‘Strictly’ comedy Fred Astaire, called the Queensbury band his ‘set of the festival’ for their ‘musical brilliance, passion and delight to be invited’ in his 'experience' article in The Guardian newspaper.
