“When you're a five-piece band made up of five different songwriters, a boatload of different styles are going to creep into your sound. It's that kind of sonic diversity that gives a band broad appeal across a wide swath of music fans. And it's that kind of broad appeal that earns votes from a bunch of different people in a contest like Bend's Last Band Standing, the multiweek, multigenre battle of the bands that Broken Down Guitars won in 2012.”

“Over the past few years, Broken Down Guitars has become one of Central Oregon's most in-demand bands because what they do well is make music music that makes people feel good. Where other bands zoom in a particular music niche genre or chase trends to their detriment, the three men and two women in Broken Down Guitars focus on making solid, straightforward classic rock for the modern age. Boogie-down blues, time-tested roots-rock, booming vocals straight out of the gospel tradition - it's all here, and packaged seamlessly for maximum good times.”

“...a band that expresses itself with a variety of vocals, violin and a sultry style of rock-and-roll...Listen to BDG and it is clear they are a multi-faceted group of skilled musicians.”
