Comments by Glenys Marcus- Radio Presenter- February 2017

Hi Patsy & David
I am getting a good response to your music on my Internet Radio Program – particularly from the American listeners.
One listener in particular asks me to play something of yours as often as I can.
Her name is Rosie and I was wondering if you are recording liners sometime, if you could record one for me to play before your music to say the song is especially for Rosie listening on Good Time Oldies.
If not then no worries – I will keep on playing you whenever I can.
Best of luck with the music

Kylie Adams Collier (Radio Presenter) review of Kangaroo Rodeo on 28th November 2016

Kangaroo Rodeo is a song that immediately  puts a smile on your  face and gets  you dancing. A good fun song that  is catchy, fun  and great to sing along to.  I love the film clip with its  beaten up ute, outback pub and dinky di characters and I love the whole adventurous  story  that went behind it. The Long and the Short  of it go from strength to strength  with their  single releases.  They are a polished act and best of all, they're  great people. Terrific song. 10 out of 10.

Patsy and Dave we are priviledged to have hosted such a magical act as yourselves feel free to visit us anytime that you please and please come back to many festivals in the future, you are 2 of the finest musicians that I have seen in my 40 years in the industry and no one can ever take away from you that you "ATTENDED AND SURVIVED THE FIRST DUBBO EASTER COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL"

Mal Norton, President of the Dubbo Country Music Association, 5 April 2015


What a great band, so much talent between Dave and Patsy, fantastic musical duo.

You were the best band we have seen in Tamworth this year (2014), and my favourite

song is one that you wrote entitled "Robyn". Great Lyrics and rythum, I hope that

song is being played on the radio so more people can hear it, if not it should be, simply beautiful.

Keep entertaining together as you are an extraordinary powerful couple. Best wishes to you-

The Long and Short of It. Put them on your must see list or your missing out on something special.

Rennies at Acheron

Dear Patsy and David,

You were just great!
Patsy and David played at a 60th birthday at my restaurant/gallery Rennies at Acheron a couple of Saturday nights ago. If you ever thought that a 60th would be a quiet affair ... think again as the guests danced the night away into the wee hours of the morning.
