"I like this guy. He's got a nice sound to him....a nice style. Whether you would call it Jazz or not-who cares. It sounds good! I don't think I've seen anything like this before-playing steel drums and singing at the same time. I like the originality!" Shirlitta Colon Music Director, WJFK AM/FM
“I had the pleasure of meeting Gregory Boyd, while taking part in TV2's All Stars show, which successfully ran for several months on Danish Television. I must say that it only took a very short time before I noticed that Gregory possessed many,”

"I love this guy! Okay, where do I begin? He's playing steel drum and singing-how many times do you see that? It is very innovative. His improvisation is really great! I love what he is doing! Singing with his instrument-I've never seen anyone do that. It's a whole new twist!"
"My word would be "originality." I thought he was also very original also as a lyricist. Those lyrics are very interesting. The way he was able to scat and play the pans simultaneously is incredible! And I like the quality of his voice. He has a very, very interesting vocal quality."
