"Classic FM Review"

"When you hear 56 Men, you know you're being rocked! Guitar-driven power pop at its finest, especially live! These guys are well-seasoned performers with top-notch songwriting. This record needs to be heard."

- Gene Godfrey: Host/Producer of Classic FM, the album friendly intimacy of progressive FM radio. - Gene Godfrey


"56 Men Debut with a Winner"

"When I first met Jon and Joe of 56 Men, they played me some of their tunes, and I was really impressed with the quality of the songs.

If you're going to make a great record, you have to have great songs and these two delivered the goods.

Jon's got a great guitar style and Joe has this big voice that connects with the listener the moment you hear it."

- Stephen Butler - Stephen Butler, Smash Palace
