"Alli has a wonderful voice, great songwriting ability and she’s a warm, charismatic person. Her band kicks some serious butt too. The chemistry between all members is very natural. To say they have a following in Northern California is an understatement. They are LOVED. I’ve been in radio for over 30 years and I’ve worked with a lot of bands and seen a lot of great shows, but I can unequivocally say that Alli and the MBC have what I like to call “presence.” There is a very positive vibe at their shows and you can feel it. They are like a rolling, gentle wave that flows over you on a warm, sunny beach."
Rick Anderson, General Manager KZFR 90.1 FM
"Alli's heartfelt songwriting performed in her passionate, smooth yet powerful vocal style is inspiring and refreshing. The songs range from funky to folky with pop and jam band aesthetics rolled into one. A Musical Brewing Company performance takes listeners on a journey through life's celebrations, struggles, hopes and dreams—musically depicted by this Northern California rock ensemble. I have watched the band grow their fan-base by consistently delivering passionate, solid shows that inspire audiences turning them into friends and fans for life. I recommend Alli Battaglia and the Musical Brewing Company for any venue and event that enjoys solid rocking with a Gaia (Goddess) flare."

"Battaglia's new EP, Water Drop Flame, dropped in March and holds true to her jam-rock fusion styling. The Chico native - who performs with a rollicking six-piece and sounds kinda like Dave Matthews Band - is a NorCal staple of fusion rock done right. Which ain't easy, because any time the term "fusion" enters the equation, you're bound to fail. Alli fails not."

"Alli Battaglia & The Musical Brewing Co. have been around the block. Six pieces strong, Alli and the gang invoke a wide variety of pop-rock influences to bolster their infectious stylings. With a strong following here in Chico, Saturday's performance promises what fans have come to expect from The Musical Brewing Company: A damn fine show."
"I have worked with Alli for many years in many scenarios and arenas. She has always handled business impressively and respectfully to all involved and, as an artist, I cherish my invitations to her events. I have worked with Alli and her team as a promoter having them on our events and, as always, they never fail to impress or inspire me musically, as well as with their professionalism. The MBC has performed at many of our events and will continue to in the future as long as I have a say in the matter. I would recommend a showcase featuring them to anyone trying to keep bringing real music from real artists to the public."
Hap Hathaway - Family Business Music
"Listening to live music is always amazing, but when you have a group of people who seem to fit together with just the right amount of friction, then you know that you are in the presence of a unique band. That eerie magic that accompanies creative work was in the room from the second that Alli took to the stage. The room was a changed space, a better world under the spell of the Musical Brewing Company."

"Long-time Chico troubadour Alli Battaglia has taken her show on the road as of late. In the wake of the release of her EP Water Drop Flame earlier this year, she has been touring around the state and been playing with a new star-studded live band… With the new powerhouse Musical Brewing Co. in place, the funk and folk combine for a very chill-yet-danceable Chico-style groove that is not unlike that of one of Battaglia's noted influences, the Dave Matthews Band."
