"Jack Neely Says"

The name is a coy understatement. These aren't your mother's humans.
These particular nine humans wear shiny bathrobes and play ukulele,
trombone, flute, mandolin and vibraphone. Sometimes clarinet, kettle
drum, or didgeridoo. And what they play is a sort of jazz funk to some
interesting songs, or recitations, from poetry or American history,
done mostly by frontman Phil Pollard, who stands and plays the
vibraphone as he recites letters and speeches by Lincoln (including the
only danceable version of the Gettysburg Address we've heard lately),
with bits of Blake or Plath thrown in for variety. - MetroPulse, Knoxville

"Amanda Mohney Says"

Better than a slip-n-slide

Knoxville is chockablock with musicians — and talented ones, at that — but is anyone serving up greater doses of pure joy than Phil Pollard?

Dare you to argue otherwise. (All reports from Bonnaroo 2006 attendees testify that the Band of Humans had the crowd won over in mere moments. They broke a sweat, of course, but not because they had to. That’s just how the BOH kicks it.) - Halls Shopper, TN
