Krypton 88 / Press

“On Sunday, Day 2 of Bop Fest 5 reintroduced Jenna Weintraub to the world. She's been singing with Krypton 88 for a while now, with her irresistible coquettish charm and reserve. Not this time. Weintraub has arrived as the balls-to-the-wall belter I just knew was hiding in there, clawing at the walls to get out. She and the band rocked the outdoor stage in the Village Gate courtyard and would've brought the house down had she been indoors. Viva la Weintraub!”

“Slipped over to Abilene to catch Krypton 88's second set full of croonin', swoonin', and twang. While guitarist Jim Via picks casual and cool, vocalist Jenna Weintraub works it like she owns it, and drives it like it's a rental. She will take you for a ride. Hold on to something, or someone.”

“Moving and shaking in the rockabilly tradition, our area's own hip cats, Krypton 88 show how it's done on their recent self-titled release. The foursome's rootsy approach to these originals and covers is full-throttle, played with energy to burn. Krypton 88's sound both appreciates the past, while embracing the modern. Check out their cool versions of "Rip It Up" and "Train Kept A Rollin"...”

“It was over to Monty's Krown after that to dig Jenna Weintraub warble sweet ‘n' nasty. She's a little meaner than Marti Brom, a little sweeter than Wanda Jackson, but doesn't put on airs in either direction. She just tips her head back and lets it fly. It was red hot, Dixie fried, and blue with an electric bass-ified Krypton 88 providing the soundtrack to a whole lot of alcohol-fueled dancing, and making out in dark corners.”
