“The hard-rocking quartet’s got the songcraft and guitar chops down while telling mini-tales in every song. Spin the track “The Ballad of William and Maxine” for a taste. It’s a classic line-up of two guitars, bass, drums and vocalist that cranks out one rocker after another, colored with blues and Americana, but always with punch-in-the-gut dual guitars. The Indianapolis gents are essentially out to fire up gin joints and outdoor summertime gatherings. That’s about all there is to it. RIYL: Smithereens and the harder side of Drivin 'n’ Cryin”
“‘Four Guys, No Gimmicks, Just Rock’ is the motto of ‘The Last Good Year.’ They jump started our morning with some electric rock n’ roll. Catch them performing in concert with The J.O.B. Band Wednesday, August 15th @ 9pm at The Camel on W. Broad St.”

“I love the opening line to their bio. “Four guys, no gimmicks, just rock.” Rockin’ is what it’s all about right? Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana this band does just that. They rock! And they do so in a manner heavily influenced by the classic rock bands of the 1970s”
“Following the July 31 release of their newest single “Steady Road,” Indianapolis-based rock band The Last Good Year will kick off their latest U.S. run “The Steady Road Tour” August 8 in Louisville, KY. “Steady Road” is available for download now through TheLastGoodYear.com, iTunes, Google, Spotify, CD Baby and more. ”

"I have to say that the first time I heard The Last Good Year I was blown away! Huge fan of their stylings and song writing, not to mention their chops. Singer's got some pipes as well, which in my book is always a plus. Great band and great group of guys."
"The songs are well written with great lryics and the band rocks live. Great group of guys and down for the cause. These guys are up and coming for sure."
"The Last Good Year is one of the best new acts, that will probably out last most of the rest of bands... I, personally, like what they do and the way they do it. If you're not a fan, it's because you've never seen them. As far as new bands go, I highly recommend them!!!"
"The Last Good Year's execution of their swaggering rock and roll in the live setting belies how long they've actually been doing it together."
"Joe Doyel is likely the best "unsigned' rock vocalist I've heard in a very long time. The kid has the pipes and the band can flat out play. The Last Good Year are climbing their way to success the old fashioned way - by being a real rock band - writing, recording, and touring the country."
“It’s definitely an audience-friendly feel, the sort of arena rock that defined several generations of concertgoers…”
“This album is a mix of incredible instrumental work, polished vocals, and pure genius from the production…”
"Our fans love them, I think those damn guys have stolen some of our fans, as a matter of fact. They're that good."
