“ Let it be forever known and forever remembered: That on this twenty second day of October in the year of our Lord Nineteen Hundred and Ninety Six, that I lay my Hand and Seal…. To attest to the commission of my Loyal Honorary Conch Citizen C.W. Colt, that he shall vocalize contempt to the Czaars of Congress of the North Regions in the land of Washington. He shall present himself acting by my command as: The Conch Republic’s Royal Minstrel:”
King Mel Fisher / Key West
-----------------------------
“There is no doubt he knows what to do with a banjo or guitar in his hand, flashing streaks of brilliance at times…”
Bill Jackson / Tribune Staff Writer
----------------------------
“C.W. Colt is a star. I can’t say when, but I know it will happen. Talent like his can’t stay hidden. C.W. has a vocal thing that is so sexy and exciting. I've seen people shiver when he does it…”
Valerie Ridenour / Key West The Newspaper
--------------------------
“When Sir William Colt and the Conch Republic Royal Minstrels” took the stage… it became apparent from the get-go that not only had the crowd come specifically to watch them play, but that they went away impressed with what they had seen.”
Terry Schmida / Citizen Staff Writer
-----------------------------

“His (musical) style is a wonderful blend of Island spirit and country sensibility.”
Key West / The Newspaper

-----------------------------
“Most of C.W. Colt’s songs incorporate the local environment, tell a story much like a ballad, and utilize humor to communicate a philosophical message.”
Tom & Chaz Promotions / Key Largo
-----------------------------
“The crowd picked up again when he reappeared on stage for the finale. There was little doubt among the crowd that the young man was on his way up…”
The Greeley Tribune
----------------------------
“Watching Singer / Songwriter C.W. Colt perform solo… was an experience akin to savoring a glass of vintage port. Buy C.W.’s new CD when it becomes available. You won’t regret it. But, better than that, go and see him perform…”
Dennis Maloney / Key West Morning Star
