"Grifters & Shills singer/songwriters John and Rebecca Stoll have a way of pulling you in like a slow moving stream and moving you on to the wellspring of music --that original and bountiful source of something you thought you already knew. I don’t think I’ve ever heard people at a show asking when the short break would be over so they could get more of what Grifters & Shills can offer up. We have a lot of musicians from all over the US make their impressions here, but on this particular night we couldn’t wait to see what else was in store. And the duo did not miss the opportunity to take us over the top to the very end of the show. There’ve been duos that can put out a full sound, and some that just give it to you straight up, but even if you didn’t close your eyes, you would swear there were more band mates on that stage. And maybe there were…the souls of the great roots musicians did seem to be channeling through. " -- Janelle Hoffmann, Riverfront Cultural Society
