"Solid Songwriting and Phenomenal Guitar work. Blackstone brings back the Power Trio"
"Cast The First Stone, Blackstone's break out CD is a masterpiece "
"Jerry combines the soul of the sixties with the angst of the 21st century that results in a powerful entree into today's music scene."
“Unsurprisingly, the left-handed, Stratocaster wielding, guitar playing of Jroc draws obvious comparisons with the late, great Jimi Hendrix! Indeed for much of this album, Jroc sounds as if he is the lovechild of Jimi Hendrix and Barry White! ~”
“Blackstone's debut album Cast The First Stone is a fantastic blend of blues and hard rock. Their unique sound, fused with Jroc's vocals can only be described as refreshing and unique.”
“A band of awesome musicians with great chops, great songs and the energy and machismo to be the ones to bring back the Experience if ever it could happen again. Hail to Blackstone and the experience.”
"One of cleveland's premier hardrock bands..these guys seriously kick ass!"
"Fans of the Hard Rock/Blues genre will no doubt enjoy JRoc's fluid Strat guitar stylings in the tradition of Jimi Hendrix and Robin Trower. His latest single, "Web of Lies" is a prime example of his extraordinary guitar skills and Hendrix-inspired vocals infused with a strong dose of his own musical personality."
"I have been in music for the better part of my entire life. I just recently worked with a long time friend of mine JRock and his band Blackstone in Cleveland Ohio. The band was not only well rehearsed but totally professional on every level. As an engineer and producer this is rare to find these days and they made my life very easy for these sessions. Thank you Blackstone and the end product is all the proof you need."
