“Little Mike And The Tornadoes – All The Right Moves | Album Review: "Make no mistake about it: This is old-school blues delivered the right way by folks who feel it down to the core. Highly recommended."”

“Right from the start, Hot Shot comes at you with energy, pumping out one driving song after another. This is one good-time band. I have a hunch they are really in their element when performing live. Except for one lone song, this is a collection of original songs written by Little Mike. His harmonica playing is rowdy and agressive, and as good as any I've heard. The band, which is based in New York City, is tight and well balanced. Guitar is ever present, but not a dominating force on the CD. There are areas where it does come through nicely. All in all, this is a team effort. The lyrics are often witty and whimsical, as in I Found Out, a story of not so true love, and Mother-In-Law Blues, a song son-in-law's everywhere will relate to. While the lyrics to the latter are fun and casual, the music definitely is not. This song is founded on very strong straight ahead blues, including some nice lead work on guitar, followed by a little piano by Little Mike. ”
