"There is no better five-part vocal harmony group around today"
— Haven James, the Woodstock Times

"... a total turn-on, not to be missed"
— Kitty Montgomery, the Kingston Freeman
 
"A great f--king band"
— Chrissie Hynde, The Pretenders

 
The fusions of rhythm-riding sweet voices uplifts to the joy point of great world-beat groups like Ladysmith Black Mombazo or Paul Winter`s Slavic imports, the Dmitri Mekropolis Singers"
— Cat Ballou, the Woodstock Times

"...flawless and fun. Each member of the band... takes the lead in a different song, each just as enjoyable as the next. With nothing but voices and finger snaps, the cover tunes they present will bring back memories of summer days and leisurely get-togethers with your nearest and dearest."
— Sharon Nichols, the Woodstock Times
