Jane Stebbins owns her half of the stage at the Little Five Points Corner Tavern, confidently belting out a medley of deeply personal and comically irreverent songs. She harmoniously narrates the tight, warm rhythm of Scott’s guitars with soul and camp. Between songs, Jane tells stories and jokes around. Think power-folk with a touch of humorous geek-love.

~Robert Bexley, Staff Writer, The Docket - The Docket, April 2009


The Jane & Scott Show are like repeated viewings of the Godfather or the Wizard of Oz, each time it gets a little bit better and the songs become old friends. J & S played a healthy 9-song set, joking around as usual between each song. Scott’s blues solos continue to become more soulful and sophisticated as he really reaches down and licks out honest rhythms and hooks. Jane’s vocals were clean and hearty, expressing her enthusiasm and fun.
Folks, if you haven’t seen the Jane & Scott Show, you are truly missing out. Come out and support your fellow student and have a good time. - The Docket, March 2010


The alt-folk band, which performs as a duo or three piece, and includes the aforementioned Scott on guitar and “featured drummer” Govind Dixit. On November 10, 2009, the band ran through a set of ten humor-charged, rocking originals, including songs from its album Expectations for an enthusiastic crowd at the 10 High Club in Virginia-Highlands.
On stage, Jane served as the de facto leader of the group between songs, telling jokes, offering anecdotes about her songwriting inspirations, and generally keeping the crowd entertained. She also wrote several of the songs performed that night. Her voice worked well with the instrumentation and rose at times along Scott's to create beautiful harmonies. Scott was generally restrained on guitar, playing rhythms that intertwined with Jane’s bass lines but he was not afraid, as illustrated by the rocking “Expectations,” to let loose and show off his chops with an impressive solo.
“Expectations” was followed up with “Nerd Song,” an upbeat tune with quirky lyrics about computers and Dungeons and Dragons guaranteed to make anyone tap their foot or even show off their dance moves. The group moved through the remainder of the songs at a well-measured pace, giving the songs time to breath and showing the individuality that each track carries. Humor and warmth can be found in the lyrics, and many of the songs aptly sum up the ecstasy and frustration that sometimes come with juggling school, relationships, and life in general. The show closed with a mellower song, “Southern Exposure.” The slower tempo eased the crowd down from the frenetic pace of some of the earlier songs and served as a great set-closer. - The Docket, January 2010
