"High Times is officially declaring Hookahville the coolest place on the planet."
"…unscripted, unchoreographed, unrehearsed spectacular display of non-corporate rock."
"Its sound is polished - the product of endless hours on stage and in the van. And it comes from a melting pot of influences as diverse as the nationalities were on Ellis Island."
"ekoostik hookah's songs offer a tight synchronicity bespeaking the solid musical prowess so often missing in the rash of self-described "jam" bands that seem to spring up almost daily. The sound is fluid and jazzy, but it rocks with cascading, virtuoso keyboards and powerhouse guitar work."
"hookah seems to be the jam band who's gained the most heartfelt prominence over the last year or so. Sure, every 365-er band worth their salt has their own festival now, but the biannual Hookaville should soon be overtaking the behemoth extravaganzas of Phish. Get in on the hookah phenomenon on the ground floor while the getting's still good."
"....ekoostik hookah is not only one of the most prolific jam bands, but is one of the best."
