"You guys sounded great!"
"Went over to Davis and listened to The Hey-Now's Saturday evening (at The Dock Store). The band was celebrating 5 yrs under the name and they were great, as usual. Lee, Andrew, and Bruce are always entertaining. What a nice time."
"Good show, gang! Enjoyed it immensely. I love your approach to covers. Mostly stuff people know, but nothing that's been over-covered. Really enjoyable!"
"Went out to Winter's last night to check out the Hey-Now's. They did a great job! They even did a few Christmas tunes. It was fun to see Sam and Lori Hawk. Got to meet Lori's parents, and got caught up with Kevin Twitchell as well. A really nice evening."
"Went to Sudwerk, in Davis, tonight. Had a cold beer, enjoyed a beautiful evening, and got to see and hear the Hey-Nows!; excellent playing-nice harmonies, as always...Nice way to start the weekend."
"Rocked out to The Hey-Nows tonight! It was one of their best shows yet, jammin' with lots of their old songs and new songs (and a few covers) to a large, very enthusiastic crowd. The evening was bittersweet, however, because it was Roger L. Trott's last gig with the Hey-Nows before he and Lisa Rea move out-of-state. I'll continue to follow the Hey Nows, but we'll all miss Roger's contributions to the Hey Nows sound!"
"A delightful evening as always!! Thanks for the rockin' music, Hey-Nows!"
"Great show last night in Winters listening to The Hey-Nows! What a great little town. What a great rock band."
"Thanks for a great night of music!"
"They played in Rootstock's front room. The chairs were gone in 5 minutes. Awesome show!"
"Admire and envy your musical skills. Keep it up, and well done!"
"The band sounded great! An excellent time for all..."
"Great evening with The Hey-Nows!"
"Thanks to everyone who packed the house at RootStock on Friday evening for The Hey-Nows! We enjoyed an incredible show of great music, terrific vocal harmonies, & fine local wines."
"Great time at Root Stock. The Hey-Nows rocked! Great to see other musicians there enjoying their music including members of Odd Man Out."
"So much fun tonight seeing The Hey-Nows! playing at Root Stock in Winters! They sounded great, and played lots of my favorites!"
"Beautiful night in Downtown Woodland. Went down to Steve's Place to catch a nice, tight set by the Hey-Nows! Nice pacing, good song selection, solid musicianship. Could have done without the blood-spitting and gratuitous biting off of the bat's head but otherwise a fine show."
"Went to the Hey Nows concert in Woodland! They had the full band tonight -- drums, bass, and three guitars, and they sounded awesome! The usual fun mix of covers and originals, with some new stuff, too. Tonight was special because it was the first time anybody ever dedicated a song to me (and Lisa), and it happened to be my favorite America tune, "Sister Golden Hair." Grinnin' ear to ear all evening! Thanks Roger and Lee!"
"What a delightful evening hanging out in Winters, listening to the Hey-Nows! in front of Root Stock! Perfect weather, a cool breeze, and sipping a nice Merlot. Always enjoy listening to the Hey-Hows!, with their eclectic mix of originals and covers and three-part harmonies!"
"Had a fun evening listening to and singing along with The Hey-Nows[!] at the Winters Street Fair tonight! They sounded great, as usual, and the weather cooperated perfectly!"
"Had a wonderful evening last night seeing The Hey-Nows! at Rootstock in Winters! I have seen The Hey-Nows! so many times that I know most of their original songs by now, but I enjoy their fun covers, too! Favorite covers from last night were "Solitary Man," "Stuck In The Middle With You," "Hide Your Love Away," and "Amy," but I also enjoyed the World Premiere of several of their new original songs! Looking forward to getting to know those, too."
"A warm turn out for Woodland's Tunes for Trees. Many socialized while eating a dinner provided by the Kiwanis while others sat right in front of the Gibson House and listened to the music of The Hey-Nows! and the Red Rose Ranch Band. One man was seen painting The Hey-Nows! and Gibson House during the performance. The Hey-Nows! are an acoustic-electric band that merges a power pop attitude with an Americana sensibility. During their performance Saturday, they performed multiple covers, including a Neil Young song and another titled 'Environmental Blues.' Formed by singer-songwriters Lee Milhous (6 and 12 string guitar) and Roger Trott (guitar and mandolin), The Hey-Nows! feature Nicolo Scozzari (lap-steel, electric guitar, and dobro), Andrew Sisco (upright-bass), and Andrew Curteman (drums/percussion). The concert and silent auction benefited the Woodland Tree Foundation, a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that plants and cares for trees in the Woodland area."
"Red Rose Ranch Band headlines the benefit concert for the Woodland Tree Foundation. The family event also features music by the Hey Nows! and a silent auction. ... The Hey-Nows! are an acoustic-electric band that merges a power pop attitude with an Americana sensibility to create engaging music for listeners of all ages. With a combination of originals and cover tunes, they mix obscure gems by Big Star, the Old ’97s, and The Band with well-known classics by Joe Jackson, Tom Petty and the Beatles. Formed by singer-songwriters Lee Milhous (six- and 12-string guitar) and Roger Trott (guitar and mandolin), The Hey-Nows! feature Nicolo Scozzari (lap-steel, electric guitar and dobro), Andrew Sisco (upright bass) and Andrew Curteman (drums/percussion)."
"The Hey-Nows! return this summer with their easy-to-listen-to mix of acoustic pop and Americana music. Enjoy another beautiful summer evening under the trees and stars, enjoying dinner and this delightful duo."
"I've had the privilege of seeing The Hey-Nows! multiple times and their music is so refreshing. If you haven't heard them yet I recommend that you do."
"Despite the exclamation point in its name, the Hey-Nows! tread softly, and the band doesn't make a puzzle of itself. Its 1960s-era pop-art logo distinctly resembles the branding for the iconic Beatles film A Hard Day's Night, and, naturally, the Fab Four is listed among its influences. Others include the Byrds, Elliott Smith, Whiskeytown and Crowded House, the musical proclivities of whom have been incorporated into the Hey-Nows! like ingredients in a pie. The Yolo County-based band is led by veteran musicians Lee Milhous and Roger Trott, who, after all these years, still demonstrate reverence for the greats in pop that came before them."
"The Hey-Nows were awesome last night at Rootstock in Winters. Their harmonies, reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel, and solid rhythm section, are precise but still soulful. Their originals range from edgy to sublime, but all are intelligently written, and there is a gentleness that threads its way through even the edgy stuff. These guys have been playing in the Woodland/Davis/Winters areas. Don't miss them when they come to your town."
“The Hey-Nows! are born...”

"Saw The Hey-Nows! at Luna's the other day. Other bands I could not remember, but it could because The Hey-Nows! play great acoustic pop. Definitely have a mid-90's vibe about them, and it's fun to listen to :)"

"The Hey-Nows! Show Redeemed Venue - Last week I attended the performance of my friends Larry & Roger of the The Hey-Nows! at Shenanigans. It ended up being a rather decent night. SOUND: Let's just say that in terms of music performance and appreciation, this was a far far better night in which the quiet acoustic sets by all the participants could be truly appreciated. The sound system was more than adequate to be meet the needs of the performers and enhanced the acoustics of the guitars. LIGHTING: Not crazy about the lighting scheme. I found it way too dark for The Hey-Nows!, and it took the wife of the 2nd performer to complain to the systems-staff to get some lighting on the stage. LOWDOWN: Overall, a vast improvement of my prior two times here for shows and so I feel compelled to bump up the rating.
