"Another RoadSide Attraction brings a cabaret presence to the stage along with a fully acoustic potluck of instruments...the music is as distinctive and colorful as its look—beautiful, bizarre, sometimes eerie, and always fun."
“Best band I seen all weekend in Knoxville, TN! And that's saying something when there's a huge music festival going on at the same time! Hope you had a nice time and will come back to our city again real soon!"”
"The band mixes the sound of an offbeat cabaret with maybe a circus midway, even as some of the unusual instruments recall familiar sounds from old-time and traditional music...Then there are the homemade instruments, often pieced together from shopping expeditions and serendipitous discoveries."
"Ah, but what about the music? It's weird, it's hypnotic, it's occasionally beautiful and sometimes even frightening." --Bill DeYoung, Connect Savannah (Feb. 2012)
“Another RoadSide Attraction hails from Roanoke, Virginia, but they could have just as easily stepped out of Coney Island in the mid-1950s, or a forgotten diner along Route 66, or any number of dusty midwestern traveling carnivals. They evoke boardwalks, midways, sideshows, World Fairs, and all the best elements of true Americana. It is scientifically impossible to go wrong with any band that features both a kazoo AND a ukulele, and if you're able to watch them without cracking a smile and tapping a toe, then you should probably consider checking your pulse. ”
"Passing through the throngs, on the opposite side of the street, there appeared an apparition of sorts: Another Roadside Attraction. This reminded us of course of simpler times when the righteous people traveled along the trails of the Wild West and took refuge in dusty street road shoot-em-up saloons and brothels. Thank goodness for whisky, women, and all sorts of odds-and-ends you could put strings on and call them instruments. It gets lonely praying in the desert after 40 days without a band of angel-faced singing hoodlums to cheer you up."
“…Another RoadSide Attraction instead take you back to when musicians performed their witty ditties and jingly-jangle tunes anywhere such a band of gypsies could pull over in a caravan and steal the public’s attention. True to their name, Another RoadSide Attraction create this carnival atmosphere. Their arsenal of instruments last night were guitar, guitarron, ukulele, kazoo, fiddle, mouth trumpet, something called “the clockworks,” and other analog devices that usually would fall under some patch on a synthesizer ever since the invention of electronic instruments.”
“Another Roadside Attraction, "Vultures, Loons & Graveyard Tunes" (self-release) Review: "With creepy-cool melodies fueled by such instruments as violin, cello, resonator ukelele and guitarron, Roanoke's Another Roadside Attraction sets up good ground for the lyrics of husband/wife team Jordan Rivers and Lucy de los Rios. Production from Charles Reynolds completes the spooky vibe.”
