Airport, 9:45 pm, O’Brien’s -- Dude, Craig Small knows how to write a bridge. And he knows how to rock said bridge on the stage. Airport’s a bar band Beach Boys, a college rock Steely Dan, the Band with polish. Bonus: the debut of Jim Gilbert on bass. - Boston Herald


A dozen friends insisted Airport would advance to the finals...They lost out because of pretty melodies, honeyed choruses­ and... [they] have the potential to go national. - Boston Herald


“Long Time,” Airport — A sugared, sublime ditty about road rage and murder. And this six-piece has a dozen as gratifying and grim as “Long Time.” - Guestlisted with Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald


...the smooth Tom Petty-ish rock know-how of the un-Googlable Airport. - Vanyaland


AIRPORT – Go Up
Masterminded by ex-Waltham guitarist, Craig Small, this CD opens with a punch with title track, “Go-Up,” a ballad with a 70’s spaghetti western feel featuring great harmonies and a bouncy train beat rhythm. “Hate Everything” with its intertwining linear melodies, sports a major Beatles vibe. I could totally imagine Sir Paul McCartney singing “Automatically Everything” as well. “Knot Again” has a spacey funk rock vibe that reminded me of other UK band, Space Hog’s tune “In the Meantime” and 80’s new wave artist Joe Jackson’s song “Is She Really Going Out with Him?” It’s a cool combo and a sound that really works. Put Airport on your list of up and coming Boston bands to check out. - Spare Change


Ever since I heard Go Up, Airport’s glorious take on the sounds of ’70s radio, I’ve been meaning go to one of the band’s shows. I won’t say who’s fault it is,* but I hadn’t been able to make it happen. That all changed Sunday night at Radio. I finally got to catch a set from the sonic sons of Jackson Browne, Tom Petty and Joe Jackson. It was worth the wait. - Daykamp Music

Bio

Raised on K-tel, AM/FM radio, Hee Haw, Crowded House. Sometimes-rock/sometimes-Americana/always-melodic. Five guys neck-deep in the Boston and beyond scene (Waltham, Boone, Electric City, Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents), playing big twang, singable, sweet, hooky, jangly, old school 70's-inspired rock. Chiming chords billowing in the breeze of sugary melodies and stacked harmonies. Songs about longing, love, sadness, nothingness, conflict, and happiness. It's pure AM gold.
