“Everyone that I talked with on Tuesday night at Ashkenaz said the same thing, "Blue Box Bayou is my favorite band". Of course we were in the heat of their irresistibly joyous energy, it wasn't possible to think of any other band at that moment. With Peter Grimaldi's accordion and singing and his brother Frank on guitar and accompanying Peter on vocals, I got to that same place as the last time they were here in Berkeley, going all out dancing and calling out to Jesus. There is something about Peter's playing that gets you in your core and makes you feel good. I really like Peter's presence on stage, he stands there and plays his heart and doesn't hold back. We don't get to see them very often, they are a bit of a secret known to those who are experienced, but since the last time they were in town I have been keeping my eyes open to catch that feeling again.”
