One reviewer said;
“ if you came to this concert looking for full-bloodied rock ‘n’ roll, then the first 45 minutes were the highlight of the evening when Liverpool’s Mike Byrne & the Sunrockers stormed their way through a superb set. With the bass player frenetically slapping the double bass, Jimmy the drummer beating out ‘Peggy Sue’ on an old drum case and Mike Byrne leading the band from the front as well as excelling on the piano. This was the closest the evening got to recreating the spirit of the 50’s”
In 2010 Mike performed a Jerry lee Lewis set with James Burton, Elvis’s guitarist. James said to Mike; “If Jerry Lee could sing as well as you he would have made more money”
