TAKE A LITTLE TRIP BACK.
"The Musical Box recreated, very accurately I must say, what Genesis was doing. I saw them in Bristol with my children so they could see what their father did back then" - Peter Gabriel
"I cannot imagine that you could have a better tribute for any act. They not only manage to sound, but look virtualy identical. It seems as though nothing is too difficult for them" - Steve Hackett
"It was better than the real thing actually. It was great, that was fantastic." - Mike Rutherford
"The guy who does Peter Gabriel is brilliant" - Tony Banks
"They're not a tribute band, they have taken a period and are faithfully reproducing it in the same way that someone would do a theatrical production" - Phil Collins
