*  “This is a band that understands what a party is and how to play for one in which people dance their socks off.”  - Ari Davidow, klezmershack.com
 
 
* “[they] breathe new life into traditional, old-country klezmer!” - Dr. Hankus Netsky, National Yiddish Book Center; Founder/Director: Klezmer Conservatory Band.
 
* “Right from the opening tune [they] play...klez with a bounce, lively and danceable.  Even the doynas are peppy.  Nicely variegated instrumentation and a whole program of...tasty tunes well played.”
 - George Robinson, the Jewish Week, New York City. (4.5 of 5 stars)
 
*  “...plenty of nice surprises throughout the disc...the originals fit seamlessly into the overall context of the album...clarinet playing keeps a healthy balance between straight and jagged rhythm, with lots of warmth and feeling.  The melodica pieces and the tsimbl suite enrich the overall texture of the album.”  - Yankl Falk, KBOO FM radio and clarinetist/vocalist of di naye kapelye
