"Lauded by many in the DC music community as a solid band with unlimited potential, they reminded listeners of their musical prowess on stage and funky personas that come through in their music."
"It is high time we do something on Once Okay Twice. The band has been putting out EPs like no one’s business, playing literally every venue you’ve heard of in DC (even some you probably have not heard of), opening for acts as varied as Ziggy Marley and 311 and Junior League and in general being very, very busy spreading their indie poprollicking sound around."
"When asked to describe the Once Okay Twice’s music in one word, members of the band give a variety of answers from “svelte” to “democratic” to “ours.” It isn’t surprising that they all have different responses, since they have quite different musical tastes, ranging from Karen Carpenter to the Spinners, Tears for Fears, Hall and Oates, the Bee Gees, and more. But all of their musical interests come together nicely to create an indie-rock band with a hint of soul."
"We're only going to tell you once. OK, maybe more than once. ONCE, OKAY TWICE is a band to watch. Actually, a band to listen to, loudly and often."
"Once Okay Twice knows how to connect with the audience through catchy lyrics that you can sing along to, and energetic, simple rhythms that get you up off your ass and bouncing along with the crowd."
"Once Okay Twice’s music blends smooth melodies with funky rhythms and simple lyrics to produce what is certainly a blessing to music fans tired of listening to the mixed bag of cover bands that travel the summertime circuit. Add to that, the group’s infectious energy and we’re-ready-to-play-any-ti..me-any-place attitude, and you’ve got yourself a worthwhile show."
"To know them, is to love them. The sweethearts of the DC music scene ... with their inspired blend of rock, pop, and chamber [Once Okay Twice] offer listeners dance worthy beats, flying chord combinations, and lyrics that encourage you to sing along as if they were your own songs. Add to that the band members’ refreshing and often unconventional styles with an intent love of life, and there you have Once Okay Twice."
