"Jimmy Kennedy Press"

"Watching charismatic frontman Kennedy work a crowd is like watching the General Lee take off on another of those crazy aerial stunts. He always lands shiny side up and burnin' rubber for all he's worth.

The band shows an impressive dynamic and, in concert, they display an uninhibited energy, thanks in large part to the magnetic stage presence of singer/harmonica-ist Jimmy Kennedy.”
-CityBeat – (Cincinnati, OH)

…Kennedy…with that rustic howl… is all frantic emotional fire and drama. On stage I couldn't take my eyes off of him." - Windy City Times – (Chicago, IL)

"If you haven't seen 'em yet you owe it to yourself to see them before they become untouchable icons on a national level." -Flush Magazine
