"April’s Empire...roars with an untouchable fierceness, then pauses to
bask in the sweetness of life. It’s playful, it’s soulful, and it’s
worth every minute." Annie Weisner, www.smilepolitely.com
"When I looked around,
I noticed that all conversation in the bar had stopped as all eyes were on the stage.
" Meric Ackerman, St. Louis Nightlife Examiner
"In the course of
an evening, you’ll hear airy wisps of ’60s Pop sweetness, Tin Pan Alley
ham, Blues swagger, Jazz and Ragtime swing, Gospel reverence, Motown Soul and Classical
precision, played with technical precision and jammy abandon." Brian
Baker, City Beat
