"da boi" derinho / Press

“(da boi's) cover of "In The Summertime" is brilliant! I enjoy listening to it! If I had to choose between (his) cover and the original, I'd choose (da boi's) cover!!! Yeah, the sound of summer! I also appreciate that (he) recorded it (his) way, it's absolutely perfect!”

Marek Starx - The Slovakian Music And Beer Review

“'In The Summertime!!!! Is it Ray? Is it Marc? No, it's da boi doin' a gem fresh masterpiece for summer. Amazing vocals and percussion - 1970! Trex & Mungo, oh yes I' will go out and see what I find... tell you if I come back alone (but dancin')”

Fernando "El Fer" Garcin - La Paella Valenciana

“Mungo d, frolicking in the summer sun and fun...courtesy of this 60's classic. In the Summertime reminds me of beach week up and down the Pinellas shoreline...St. Pete, Treasure Island, Madeira, Redington, Indian Rocks, Sand Key, and Clearwater...listened to this one in an ice cold room overlooking each beach….”

Mike Baluja - La Gaceta

“Da Boi and da familia bringing nothin' but the best to the table when they're doin' the blues. Excellent chops by special guest, Bobby Gilbert, help to solidify yet another mastered genre by this talented producer and his nomadic troupe.”

Mike Baluja - La Gaceta

"Mother Earth"..a staggering guitar intro into a bluesy swagger of excellent musical magic. Once more da boi at the helm with gritty no nonsense blues vocals. This IS blues...This IS brilliant. .well done team da boi.

Steve Inglis - The Highland Music and Golf Review

“Please come home for Christmas... I'm not having the blues while i listen. This lovely creation makes me happily sway to the groove. The Christmas song genre is probably the most finicky one ever. You managed to record a version that lets me listen to the very end. Typically i quit Christmas songs after five seconds playtime… Great one again, Derek and Throdgie!”

Klaus Kappes - The Duckledorffer

“I HATE CHRISTMAS SONGS.. BUT .... you have cracked my grinch with (Please Come Home For Christmas).... avoiding the cloying sentimentality of this holiday, you've managed to deliver an honestly direct and heartfelt wish wrapped in a groove that is a fitting ribbon and bow to a sentiment expressed simply, beautifully, in a way that destroyed my grinch. Yay!”

David Namerow - American Conga Player Magazine

“...I was hesitant to listen because I never liked ("Closing Time")... AND NOW I DO! (da boi) really made it happen here. Repeat play!”

Tom "El Maestro" Hedrick - The Minnesota Fish & Game & Music Monthly

“When contemplating the absolute perfect way to begin this Sunday morning, the answer came to me in an instant...with "da boi" derinho's brand new track..."CLOSING TIME (ICCP Take #10)." For me, this one takes home the award for "Most Beautiful of all 'da boi' project related tracks" (be it solo or collective)! The vocals are extraordinary...so touching and heartfelt that one would think the lyrics were delivered by da boi's own pen. This is one of my favorite covers of a song...ever...and that is saying a lot (since the original version always left me somewhat unimpressed)...”

Liz Bodwell - The Lizabeth Vessel Landing Review

"CLOSING TIME"....This is a fresh look at an oldie but goodie. The lyric package is cleanly delivered up front with enough delicious grooves bedding it to enhance the poignant enigma of this wonderful song. This is a re-visit that honors, grabs afresh and holds tight...

David Namerow - Conga Player Magazine

"Closing Time" another brilliant song from (da boi)... One which has a particular potency today, as we reflect on - and feel the effects of - a heavy Saturday night!

The Dope Brothers - High Times Magazine

“Mainstreet... is a beautifully rendered cover.(da boi is) a truly gifted performer and this is but one of the many jewels in (his) treasure chest of sonic jewels...”

Salariatus - The Texas Tornado And Classical Music Report

“Nice job on Mainstreet, D… it's amazing how well that song captures the feeling of hanging out in those pool halls, pubs, and game rooms of our youth. I sure logged in some hours shooting pool, playing foosball, and tilting pinball machines back then...”

Mike Baluja - La Gaceta

“Stuck in the Middle . . . more freakin' da boi brilliance. I don't know what it is, but I always love (his) covers better than the originals. Even if I absolutely love the originals. Cortez is one of my favorite songs ever, but damn, if I don't like (da boi's) a little bit better. Frick!”

Terry Thomas - The Spent Fixer

“And (da boi) even sounds like that Great Scotsman. I LOVE this. What an excellent choice. Great arrangement... Its as good as the original...especially with the brilliant part refrain ( please...please) Love it Sir. Could be the national anthem of ReverbNation. "Clowns to the left of me....Jokers to the right"....heheheheh.”

Steve Inglis - The Highland Golf Digest And Review

“Umm, can you give me a little push, I'm stuck!!! I'm off my chair and I'm fallin down the stairs..L O V E... T H I S... S O N G... PLEASE!!!!!! WOW!! I love your voice for sure..If I have to be stuck I'm glad I'm in the middle. WHAT? lol...xxxx ♥”

Maryann - New Jersy Hottie Magazine

“Great choices on what material to cover, as always, "db" d...this song stores a lot of good memories for me, brother...takes me back to my high school days, my Gremlin with Levi seats, and my floor mount 8 Track. Your coverage is exceptional, as we've all come to expect. Props to the players behind the scenes, and to the most adventurous producer/artist on Reverbnation.”

Mike Baluja - La Gaceta

“Once again (da boi has) turned a so-so song and turned it into magic. I kind of liked "Stuck in the Middlee..." but it was never anything special. Well, (da boi) made it something very special. (da boi has) a magic touch! I really do love all (his) music. It's got that certain something that catches you and won't let go….”

Salariatus - The Houston Pie Thrower

"da boi" launches his solo career with"Stuck in the Middle"& it's gotta be a huge hit with Flobeheads world wide.... no-one else on the planet can re-imagine & own a song the way D does, & he proves it time after time...

Peter Kenyon - The Ilkeston Town Gazette

“Hey this must be where all the Floobies and Flobeheads meet when they are not saving Z-Lab from utter chaos , great to be here !!!!! Great music...”
