Lights, December 2020
“Mr Goodhand leads the cast and band with energy, clarity, and aplomb. Under his leadership, all the subtleties of the score are fully realized, and the audience is able to enjoy an effortless ride.”
Ron Melrose, Music Supervisor, Jersey Boys
"All credit too to Francis Goodhand’s musical direction. Familiar though the music is, it feels as though we’re hearing it for the very first time."
The Stage, Cats, Kilworth House Theatre
"All credit to the arranger Francis Goodhand… for drawing such a hearty noise from a skeletal band that, I am told, is actually located three floors upstairs in the wardrobe department."
