“Catherine Capozzi has long been recognized as a guitar goddess on the Boston music scene. From her days with prog rockers All The Queen’s Men to her highly regarded Axemunkee instrumental work to her recent foray into the campy Sci Fi comic book themed Darling Pet Munkee, Capozzi has been a queen of the six string.”

“Gotta love a jungle beat paired with a distorted swinging guitar. Or a gypsy flamenco notefest leading into a killer lead. No joke. Catherine Capozzi and her band Axemonkee take guitar to new genre-bending places. Boston-based Axemonkee hit the scene in 2007 and is an instrumental explosion of guitaralicious surprises. Capozzi’s tasty playing really shines.”

“Yet, here comes along a lady who can strum the electric musical sword better than damn near anyone I’ve ever heard. I’ve never felt more like a sexist prick than I did before listening to Catherin Capozzi rip my rock and roll loving heart apart in her amazing instrumental group Axemunkee, and lead for the brilliant trio Darling Pet Munkee.”

“Most instrumental music has been difficult for audiences to wrap their brain around and few people have had real success (Satriani; Vai; ?), but Capozzi manages to keep things more than just interesting on SideWalk Mary. Favorite cuts include "Acid Django", "BlasFamous", and "Dali's Dark Dream".”

"It’s that rare kinda mind-melt that can be many things to many people. It’s psychedelic, dark, jaunty, spiritual, playful, sinister, even world-beatish, and sometimes all in the same friggin’ song.."
