A fantastic show! I loved every single minute that I went back to watch it a second time! Everyone gave it their all on stage: the vocals were amazing, the choreo was great and the commitment to each character was thoroughly entertaining. Stunning job guys! You’re all stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My friend and I literally tripped over this show and were totally bowled over by the amazing vocals, interesting storyline and the fantastic energy of the group. A must watch ! Funny and engaging. Vocals to die for, watch out Adele ! Loved it . A Big Thanks to the lovely young lady who invited us and then led the way to the venue.

What a show!! The plot takes you on a (glitteringly murderous) tour through the musical numbers near-seamlessly, with everyone getting their time to shine. Incredible vocals that practically vibrate the furniture, passionate performances and some very inventive reworkings of the lyrics to Chicago make for a wonderful evening of entertainment!

Fantastic show a tongue in cheek murder mystery with over the top acting and a superior a Capella set of songs. Good for anyone with a love of a Capella and musicals. Well worth a visit.

Steelworks’ Vocal Vengeance show is fun.

Good pace all the way through with great, tight harmony and choreography.

Tongue in cheek with over the top characters and an unusual, original plot, the deadpan, sardonic detective is the perfect foil to the rest of the flamboyant cast. Great solos, an excellent duet and all round high standard with interesting songs, especially the lacrimosa, which was beautiful.

Very entertaining, recommended.

Really enjoyed the show. Lovely group harmonies, solo and duo performances , and the group can act.

It takes a brave and talented A Capella group to write a story line and add acting and choreography.rather than simply running through a catalogue of songs. Steelworks pulls it off . The songs are well chosen to follow the story line, impressively sung, and the singers ham up their characters to great effect. Great fun. Recommended.

Fabulous show from a group of very talented young people. Amazing vocals. The story line/plot was complimented by the choreography and also had plenty of humour injected into it. I'd definitely go see them again.
