It's never too soon to break out the Clash, never too late to submerge in the Beatles. And in between, float on Air, glide with Hardy and strut the Strokes! Covers and compositions blend into a true rock music awakening, a live show for curious kids and nostalgic parents sure to have you all singing, dancing, even screaming... from ages five and up!

It would have been really good fun but just as the kids were getting into it they announced the last song (after 25 minutes) and at 11.00 it was all over. I don't understand why as it is advertised as 50 minutes so feel a bit cheated as it wasn't cheap and was a birthday treat for my daughter.

We took our 11yr old and 7yr old yesterday and they thoroughly enjoyed it! The band were amazing and there engagement with the crowd made for an electric atmosphere. My (music snob) other half thought the band were absolutely brilliant and we were both completely astonished when my 11yr old (who never dances) danced throughout the whole show!

Great gig! Musicians were really engaging and there was an excellent selection of music. From The Clash to Hot Chip to France Gall. Our 5 year old and 8 year old were up dancing right from the start. Great start to the day!

I saw the show today with my 5 and 8 year old. It was great, they loved their first proper gig, especially the Hot Chip song. Good for grown ups too. They want to go again!

This French 4-piece band give youngsters a great taste of a real rock show, with a mix of older and more modern European music.
The adults joined in toe-tapping with Trio's 'Da Da Da' and 'Should I stay or should I go' by The Clash so there was something for everyone.

Edinburgh Festival For Kids (3/5 stars) 98 days ago

Comete has energy, enthusiasm and loud music in abundance. For me it lacked enough covers for the children (or myself!) to really get involved and sing along – but the extremely talented musicians on stage did their best – teaching us lyrics and encouraging clapping, dancing and jumping along whilst they entertained us. For any budding musicians out there, this production is all the inspiration they need !
