3rd August 2014,  Rock and Bike Festival 2014

Just wanted to say how great your were, and I would honestly say that after watching all the bands that weekend, you were def the best.  No other bands had a standing ovation like yours.  I would happily come and see you again if you were a little nearer to Lincoln Did think of going to the one in Sept at Carrsington just to see you, but note it has been cancelled.  Anyway well done you was the best, and hope to see you next year at Rock and Bike if not before.  We camped next to you, when you ran over the mobile phone, hope it\'s still working!

11th July 2014 – The Greyhound Beeston

What a difference a couple of years can make. I last saw these guys around 2 year ago (slightly different line-up I think too) and they were your typical rock covers band like so many we see these days but what a change now. The raw power, presence and passion of Tick Tick Boom shows just how covers should be played.

An absolute crackin’ night had by everyone at The Greyhound. In fact the crowd kept them playing ’til well after midnight before they could finally get off stage and relax with a well earned beer.
This is definitely a band to watch out for in the future as I can see them going down a storm at any bike or rock bar, never mind a few festivals I can think of.
Excellent night boys, hope to see you back again soon

5th July 2014 – The Old Royal Oak, Burton

Brilliant performance from Tick Tick Boom. Pulled out some crackin song covers from AC/DC, GARY MOORE, IRON MAIDEN, METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST, OZZY OSBOURNE AN MANY MORE. Also played a new song they had only rehearsed once and absolutely smashed it. Great vocalist, two brilliant lead guitarists, great bass guitarist and crackin’ drummer. DEFO A MUST SEE BAND!  Jason Darocket Bateman

Brilliant night , last night at the Steamboat! Thanks, chaps!. Debbie Blake…

Had a really good evening at The Steamboat at Trent Lock, listening to a band called, Tick Tick Boom who played loads of rock classics! put my foot in it when I got there though – asked my friend where she’d been as she’d got mud spattered all over her black jeans. Turns out she hadn’t been anywhere and thats how ther’re supposed to look!! Sorry, I’m not very up-with-it when it comes to fashion – just ask my kids! lol, Gillian O’Hara….

8th September 2012 – The Kings Head, Hilton

Tick Tick Boom – Proper pub rock, the way it should be done – four on the floor and full bore – Dave Mason, Landlord, The Kings Head…

I decided to celebrate my birthday in a local pub where Tick Tick Boom were playing as I like a bit of live music. I had not listened to them before, but I like to follow my instincts and their posters looked very slick. I was pleased my instincts did not let me down, my birthday went with a BANG!, with everyone enjoying the band performing excellent covers of past and present rock to an extremely high standard. I would highly recommend anyone hiring Tick Tick Boom, a very professional outfit and lovely boys too! as they didn’t mind my manic dancing – Trudy Fowler…

30th October 2011 – The Railway Tavern, Hatton

What an amazing show you guys put on last night at the Railway in Hatton. So much energy and musical talent on show, along with a great mix of modern, retro and classic rock hits. The vocals were great from all the singers and the whole place could tell how much you guys enjoy what you’re doing – you’ve now got to be the best rock band on the circuit……Spot On Lads.

Had a fantastic night at your gig at The Wyggy on 15th Jan – from the way nearly everyone was up dancing and singing I think you could safely call it a success!! I loved every track, from the older classics to the new rock and will definitely be coming along to more gigs :) Ness.
