“Suzy Stidham you are AWESOME, Mr Bell 10 hrs · Unlike · 2 Art Bell Hey Suzy Stidham, You are too kind ma'am, but your words do make me smile. It is my privilege to sit in with musicians of this quality in a place like Stooges. There's plenty of room and the mirrors look great in the shoots. And thank you for all your hard work and efforts Suzy. The musicians know who is putting in the time. Respect, /art 9 hrs · Like · 1 Suzy Stidham Thank you Art. Missed you Wednesday. It was another awesome evening, with some interesting quirks, lol. And I hate that you missed what I did for Ms Mel's birthday 9 hrs · Unlike · 1 Art Bell Hey Suzy Stidham, I was so sorry to have to miss Wednesday this past week. Several people have told me about the goings on. It sounds like it was a lot of fun. Respect, /art”

“Maurice Brines Heya Art Bell.....WOW ! Beautiful video....Marty, Keith, Rob, Mike, and you did a great job and I thank you....it wuz soooo sweet to have these musicians to perform with.....three of the guys had never heard "Where Are You" before and they absolutely have the born instinct to compliment the groove and lay down what's in their hearts on my toon. Thank you sir for doing this for all of us...I absolutely can relate to the time, effort, and dedication you have for music and the musicians that perform. Suzy and Stooges, I truly appreciate the opportunity and your invitation to perform mates !”

“Art I have always been a fan of your work. Being your friend is just icing on the cake. James "Jerry" Thomas”

“Keli L Hawthorne Hi Art Bell. You definitely are doing many things right! The videos are awesome and it is beyond most generous of you to do these for the band! Thank you SO much! Yes, I think they were spectacular, but again, I may be just a bit biased. Best wishes to you and yours as well!”

“Mari Jensen Being a sound person as well as a vocalist/percussionist, as I always do whenever I see someone doing a cover of a great tune, I don't watch the players for the first time. Instead I do this: l-i-s-t-e-n to the tune, then I go back and see the artists. I'm just loving how I can hear the snare & high-hat, no overpowering bass drum. Bass guitar is so well blended too, it's hugging the drums as it should, and the guitar volume is spot on! The vocals are good although if it was me, I'd give it just a tad more volume when needed. Great job on this tune kids. Posolutely absotively dig it”

“LEGZ! Had my headphones on loud! wow,hits you right in the gut. Brilliant guitar work, compliments to the bass player (MAJESTIC) blew me away. Very good mixing and arrangements. Guitars are very elegant and ole style strumming/picking. Short and melodic guitar solos. BRILLIANT, pleasantly surprised.”

“For this reviewer, the vocals and guitar work of Charlotte based musician Art Bell channels effectively the best aspects of the work of singer-songwriter J.J. Cale. J.J. Cale, composer of "After Midnight and Cocaine", has been one of Eric Clapton's greatest influences. There is a smoky, subtle quality to Bell's vocals that recall Cale and a guitar style that echoes some of the best work of Clapton, SRV and Hendrix. Of the 15 tracks on Bell's "Roof Top Parker", 9 were written or co-written by Art Bell. Bell's songs are well crafted and well played. Even more impressive is the fact that with the exception of Bob Enos on drums, all of the instruments featured on "Roof Top Parker" are played by Art Bell. The lyrics of the songs are witty, especially on ""Facebook Fix", which states "It doesn'ft cost me a bit, won''t you give me a click" and effectively serve the theme and thrust of Bell''s songs.”

“Grande Art Bell !!!! Seus Portugues é perfeito, estou muito feliz pela publicação, ... Isso é incrivel, amei!!!!! Obrigado pelo carinho da nossa amizade..Grande Paixão- Música”

“The blues genre and form is omnipresent, and like a womb it has nurtured and given birth to distinct genres and subgenres—urban styles, delta blues, Chicago blues and boogie-woogie, to name a few. Many musicians are known to play a form, or a subgenre, that has spawned from the blues, but very rarely do you stumble across a true blues musician, like Art Bell, who embodies the genre and form of the blues in its entirety. Nicole Pietrantonio - Corset”

“Ta musique a un petit coté french ! dans la profondeur ! avec note! oriantal ! on parlera plus tard ART avec plaisir ! !musique et plus si tu veux ? je sors la ! a +! ”

“You are amazing... loved the guitar harmonies. I enjoy just about anything with a latin flavor and this was enjoyable. Not an easy feat track by track so I'm appreciative of your efforts and willingness to share your gifted accomplishments! PS: Why are you here and not in L.A., NY or Nashville?!?!?! ;-) ”

Jim Stanton - facebook

“TOTALLY AWESOME DUDE! Not an easy one to cover, in an authentic way like this. WOW!!! You are my hero (all over again)!!!”

Jody Page (speaking of White Wedding) - facebook

“Nice work Art! Tasty licks with finese on the guitar. I'd remix a bit with the piano accompaniment a tad underneath your work on the guitar. I don't know why but I'm hearing vibes in the background carrying the song bed a bit more. Again, nice job. Thanks for sharing! ”
