The Atomic Sherpas / Press

“The Atomic Sherpas Perhaps more so than just about anybody, the Sherpas bring it. Starting in 2008, they came, they saw, the rocked our festival to its core.”

"We had a Cafe NELA staff meeting. Atomic Sherpas was hands down the most favorite band to have played there to date."

Nubs Grumacher, Cafe NELA Sound Team - Cafe NELA

"The Atomic Sherpas bludgeon your cootie parts with funk from the free form fun-zone"

“The Atomic Sherpas are one of the most amazing bands you will see on the L.A. music scene." ”

"What an innovative band this is! No, they're not a rock band and they're not a jazz band, but something in-between with lots of soul and sweat. Imagine if Miles Davis' Bitches Grew merged with some early Funkadelic/Parliment along with some Zeppelin-ized craziness. You can boogie your ass off or just sit back and let them blow it off for you. The Atomic Sherpas are one of the most amazing bands you will see on the L.A. scene."

"HE ATOMIC SHERPAS are far and away one of the most unique & talented bands ever to grace the Hip Kitty stage"

"Front Man Vince Meghrouni's (Mike Watt, The BellRays, Fatso Jetson) ensemble of talented jazz, fusion, psychedelic and blues aficianados of the L.A. area take three parts of American jazz and delta blues heritage and spike it with prodigious puddles of the avant-garde and psychedelic soul of post sixties hippie heritage giving noble acknowledgements and drawing comparisons to acts none other than Zappa, Mountain, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Brand X, Edgar Winters' White Trash and Sun Ra."

"They came, they saw, they rocked our festival to it's core."

"Interstellar Mojo Overdrive (the title is a take off of sorts of The Pink Floyd’s Interstellar Overdrive from their debut album) is a sexy as hell boogie-woogie track that will get you dancing no matter how drunk or stoned you are already. GodHead to the 9th degree, I say!"


"The band features the absolutely incredible talents of Vince Meghrouni on sax, flute, harmonica and vocals along with his “all star” band that will leave one’s mouth absolutely agape in wonderment."

"Arguably the most high energy act in the history of Carter Ranch, their voracious explosions of sound couple only with the true mastery of the musical genius and mainlined vein of musical heritage that the band taps."

"The Atomic Sherpas are awesome mofos who can play anything"

Falling James - L.A. Weekly

"A real band's band, these guys will make any concert or festival legitimate just by setting foot on stage."

"I don't know if you call it jazz, or call it blues, but it sounds like punk rock to me"

Jack Brewer - Words from the world's greatest living poets

““#4 on KPFK 90.7 Barry Smolin’s “The Music Never Stops” “Ten Best Albums of 2009””

"... A hard-groovin' live fusion of blues, funk, jazz and rock that never lets up."
