"I watched the demo video and have to tell you that its RARE a Skynyrd Tribute band actually captures that "space" between notes, so when I say "clean" its probably the highest form of compliment I can give you. Can see that you guys concentrate on the music, as it should be, and "spaces" are awesome!!!! To many "tribute" bands sonically just don't cut it - you guys do! Congrats!"
 
 Sun Media's Stephen Uhler - re SabStock show:  " You guys were amazing, especially to an older fellow like me who knows who Skynyrd is beyond the tunes... ;) "

 Craig Jefferson - PUB Promotions:   "These guys (and gals) are the REAL deal! Great stage show, always professional. Lynyrd Skynyrd at it's best! Saturday Night Special bring it!"

 Dan Dubé - Continental Entertainment: "One of the better bands I've seen from Northern Ontario....Great front man, back up singers and musicians....what else can I say."

 Bill Davidson - Fan: "Having seen Lynyrd Skynyrd 6 times since 1991. Saturday Night Special host's a "rolicking" good time....the perfect blend of "in your face guitars and vocals' mixed with that sweet, Southern Rock boogie rhythm section. As close to the the real thing as you will ever find!"
