“Yogoman Burning Band is one of the best and most consistent bands in Bellingham right now. Their music has an irresistible vibe that gets just about anyone in the audience on their feet dancing. It’s a bit of reggae, a bit of soul and a lot of attitude; a mix of catchy bass lines, vibrant brass and a groove held up by Yogoman himself...”
"With an energy and style that reminded me of Gogol Bordello, this Bellingham, Washington band fuses funk, soul, reggae, dancehall, some jazz and blues and a touch of roots rock in a universal swirl of sound. If you had a pulse then your feet were moving, your butt was shaking and your hands were flailing in ecclesiastic spirals along with the mad uproar surrounding you. Their page contains an apt one-liner, reading: “Let’s get ridiculous.” As the horns bellowed, the drummer let loose manic howls, and the bassist laid down one funky line after another, I realized that this saying was spot on, and that I was watching one of the best live acts in the Pacific Northwest."

“YBB has a sound that weaves together the sun-shiny rays of summertime outdoor party music with old school horn arrangements and band member shout outs.
“...It's ALWAYS a good idea to spin a Yogoman track. Positive lyrics, infectious melodies, stellar musicianship...just great, great songs. They've gone from being unknown to KHUM listeners to being possibly the most requested band during my shift.
"...one of the great dance bands you've never heard of...Yogoman is an absolute knockout. Imagine Yogi Bear and Yogi Berra on the dance floor. On fire."

“You'll want to sing, you'll want to dance, you'll leave the CD in the car stereo, remembering when listening to reggae felt novel and soul music tapped into something special.”
