"People of all ages, all races and ethnic backgrounds, families and singles, all grouped together to take in the Reggae sounds of Sundance and Pathwa...people seemed to really enjoy themselves. The music was great and we both agree we'd see them again...So, if you ever have the chance to catch the bands Sundance or Pathwa, do so, you won't regret it."

“Sundance(EP) ELFKING Music ...This vynyl debut by Seattle reggae band Sundance is a good introduction to what the group does best-politically relevant reggae interlaced with Carribean and African drumming patterns...”
The Rocket, Seattle Wa.
“Sundance has been around for a while. Deservedly. At the moment they are the Pacific Northwest's only reggae band. Beyond that, they do a consistently solid performance...Their selection is excellent. you can safely assume you'll be hearing covers of the best genres, as well as their fine originals. One has to wonder what's it's like touring Montana as a reggae band...Tolerence of diversity isn't always the first thing that comes to mind when envisioning a cowboy hat meeting a head full of dreadlocks....”
The Rocket, Seattle Wa.
“Steel pulse's music is also an evolutionary step in that they break the rule that the only good reggae is jamaican reggae. Sundance, the local band which opened the show, also breaks that rule, and with a vengence. One of the great strengths of Steel Pulse is that they are good song writers and Sundance has that going for them too. Their song "Public Servant" as well as several others are first rate. And Sundance too, has a "Rockers" sound. Simply put, Sundance is a solid band, they should have a record contract, and they should be heard. Jamaican, Briton, or Seattleite, the message of the music is universal and played well, so is it's visceral appeal.”
The Seattle Times.
“Sundance has matured nicely over the past few years and now puts out a clean, tight sound and convincing stage show. They play an African-oriented reggae which they intersperse with occasional latin outbursts...Their arrangements are involved, their vocal harmonies sweet and precise and their lyrics well meaning.”
The Seattle Times
“...with backing from the new record label Rasta Zone, Maui reggae artist Sundance has been able to record his most polished album to date. Recorded at the Lahaina Sound Studio, Reggae Feva' features a collection of original songs played by Maui musicians from a number of popular bands...Besides offering some lively reggae, Sundance includes African influences on Ablade(the Kings and Queens are Coming) and calypso on"Trinidad".”
The Maui News
“...Sundance opened with "Get Up, Stand Up" and by the end of the first verse most of the audience had done just that...Sundance was hot and by the time they were done so was the crowd. The place was a steambath...”

“...Having recently paid a visit to Seattle, his old stomping grounds, here is a brief overview of a very interesting man who returns home to us from time to time...”
the Archives Magazine, Seattle, Wa.
“...Sundance was kind enough to provide me with a sampling of some of ElfKing Lore albums and cassetts. They were absolutely fantastic. I hope he isn't planning on getting them back!”
The Maui Bulletin
“...After the interview and another hour, they were really cooking...the crowd went nuts...”
