"There is no shortage of quality country/rockabilly bands roaming the DFW music landscape these days...However, few of those bands are gaining as much attention as The Marfalites are right now. Their music is a fresh take on a classic country sound. It’s got all the deep toe-tapping rhythm of Cash-era country music and the attitude of modern rockabilly. And people are starting to take notice."

“The Marfalites are a classic example of a Texas alt-country cow-punk band, with songs that split the difference between rockabilly, classic country and Americana, and covers ranging from Waylon Jennings to Social Distortion. The band won the People's Choice award at last weekend's Indie Fest in Grand Prairie.”

“Chevrolet's Battle of the Dad Bands will let (five) dad bands crank it up to 11 and battle it out for the top title Saturday in front of a massive crowd at the Chevrolet Truck Row Stage at the Texas State Fair. Check out chevydadbands.com for your favorite band, be it an alternative duo, blues soloist, rock, electronic or country band. The winner gets invited to attend a taping of the Texas Music Scene and an opportunity to record a song for the show's broadcast. Who'll end up the coolest dad band on the block? Will it be Dallas' own Marfalites?”

“THE MARFALITES win the People's Choice Award at the 2010 Fall Indie Fest in the country music category.”

“DALLAS, Oct.4-PRNewswire- From grunge, heavy metal, Texas twang, smooth R&B, pure country,...Lone Star State dads know how to rock out. Judges have narrowed the field to five bands eligible to battle for the title of "The Best Dad Band in Texas." "The finalists' concert... promises to be a ...highly entertaining show," says Chevrolet regional communications manager Craig Eppling. "we're eager... to have them on the stage demonstrating that Texas dads can absolutely bring it on a musical stage." The lineup of finalists includes: * Bad Rodeo, Driver, The Krayolas, Ganda, and THE MARFALITES. The five finalist bands will play the Chevrolet Truck Row Stage at the State Fair of Texas beginning at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16. They will be judged based on music quality, stage presence, and crowd engagement. Judges include 99.5 The Wolf on-air personality Ryan Fox, State Fair of Texas director of food service Carey Risinger, and Jerry's Chevrolet general manager Andrew Anderson. ”

"Saw the Marfalites a few weeks ago at this spot and I was blown away--the griminess of the band's alt-country sound, the grit behind Noah Caveny's vocals, the swagger of the band's stage presence. Real impressive stuff, folks. "

“Seriously, though: The Marfalites are our new favorite local band...how come no one told us about The Marfalites? Easily belongs on the top 5 list of local country bands. And we have TONS." ”

"I've been to New York, Nashville, and LA...and I've never heard anything like this. It is wonderful! Original, powerful, and unique."
