“Jens Kruger very evidently sees no limits to what can be produced on the native American five-string banjo. He’s as much of a pioneer to today’s banjo fans as Earl Scruggs was 60-some years ago.”
“They defy description, categorization and convention. In a world of bands that are sounding sound more and more frighteningly alike, they stand alone, fearlessly exploring new musical waters with a level of excitement, energy and creativity, the likes of which the genre hasn’t seen before. Uwe, Jens and Joel, the always jaw-dropping Kruger Brothers, will be ganging around the microphones … doing what they do best … just being themselves.”
“Bluegrass Meets the Maestro' a four star evening...I found myself literally overwhelmed by the Kruger Brothers' talent...”
“...Maestro Wada pulled off of an unusual coupling of style to the delight of his audience. "Bluegrass Meets the Maestro" paired the CSO (Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Punta Gorda, FL) with the Kruger Brothers, a group the maestro hand selected after hearing them perform. The program had audience members on their feet, begging for more.”
“...Jens, his banjo nearly exploding as the rhythm practically overwhelmed the room ...is an amazingly talented composer. His brother, Uwe, makes a guitar sing like there's no tomorrow...You would swear Uwe's guitar said, "My turn!" Joel Landsberg, the quiet one of the three, plays a mean bass guitar, and Josh Day added percussion to the mix...”
"Jens Kruger has established himself as one of the world's most musically sophisticated and technically accomplished five-string banjo players."
"I haven't heard a set of music in many a day that I enjoyed more than I did the Kruger Brothers."
"We can always count on the Kruger Brothers to provide us with an excellent performance every time they take the stage."
“'Think about it,' Maestro Xiao-Lu(Bangor Symphony Orchestra). "The whole world would be better, more loving, if we had more Kruger Brothers. ' It's hard to argue with that.'”
"I used to think the banjo was somewhat limited to certain styles, until I heard Jens Kruger. I love Jens' playing....Jens has played some of the most beautiful and expressive banjo I've ever heard." Ron Black, member of Grammy-winning Alison Krauss and Union Station
“Every once and a while, a banjo player comes along who challenges the boundaries of what you believe the instrument is capable of. Jens Kruger is just such a player”
“The Krugers are nothing short of magnificent, the classiest of acts as can be found on today's bluegrass and acoustic scene. Their music defies description.”
“...a virtual smorgasbord of musical styles, artistic, technique and down-home fun was delivered by the returning Kruger Brothers...”
“...Along with their exquisite musicianship and uplifting energy, the trio brings something unusual to the bluegrass genre...”
