National Hotel Sound System / Press

“Music of NATIONAL HOTEL SOUND SYSTEM can now be heard and requested on South Africa's All -purpose music channel EuroTrashMusic FM. www.etm.fm”

“This band checks their fans in as travelers, as if they have stopped in from a long journey...When talking with this band, it's easy to see that they are deep and not just deep from the wild jungles of Louisville. While their philosophies might be complex and out of reach for some people, their music is not. Their sound reaches all walks of life and conjures deep, personal inner visions. on a lighter note: It's also good music for a good time. It's possible to envision National Hotel (Sound System) playing in an ominous mountain lodge, complete with flowered burgundy rugs, solid wood bars, heavy liquor, a smog line of cigar smoke, and a mix of bourgeoisie and extraterrestrials lounging around in velvet smoking jackets. It is that type of audience for which National Hotel Sound System are more than happy to play...Their main objective is musical celebration through freedom, discovery and service.”

"National Hotel (Sound System) emerges from the Highlands of Louisville, KY as a group of pioneers dedicated to the art of making deep, rich, illustrious musical textures. Heavily guided by tribal drumbeats, heavy rock, jazz, dub, electronic and classical music, National Hotel is the sountrack of your life".

"Members of National Hotel Sound System come wandering through the bar (Lisa's Oak Street Lounge-Louisville, KY) wearing masks...Between songs, the drummer makes strange comments and throws out non-sequitors. "We're going to play a slow love song," he says as the band launches into a driving rhythm...Around 2:00 AM, the band tries to close its set, but two women who have been dancing the entire time wail for them to continue...The band obliges and plays on.
