“Brassy, splashy Stevie DuPree & The Delta Flyers are a Texas band with a vibrant Louisiana sound. DuPree’s strident, rough-around-the-edges tenor has a John Fogarty quality, and he’s backed by solid musicians, including a hellacious horn section that polishes here and there to a luster. His pen creates equally raw vignettes with dusty characters, slightly tarnished but likeable.”

“Ok, we're just gonna say it - this is a fabulous CD!
All of the original songs on this recording really rock the house. The music is high spirited, fun and full of energy! Guest artists include Marcia Ball, Kaz Kazanoff, and The Texas Horns. The tracks are all superbly arranged and performed. If anyone thinks that the Blues is about feelin' bad, then they haven't scratched the surface of this true American art form. One listen to this CD is likely to make anyone feel good. So sit back, push play, and enjoy! Highly recommended.”
Barrelhouse Blues Review
“Flavored by a hefty dose of blues/roots by way of Texas/Nawlins, this is a party rock rocket that hits the targets when it drops it’s missiles. Not reverentially retro or cool in conformity with what tastemakers think is cool right now, these guys play up a storm and simply deliver the goods, like a runaway freight train. Hot stuff that’s first class all the way.”
