“East to West takes an old classic house of music with chipped white paint, broken windows, porch falling apart and remodel it into something beautiful . . . What’s important is that the Bottlecap Boys take well worn grooves then rework, polish and innovate the sounds to make something new and fresh . . . The Bottlecap Boys lack nothing in the standard elements but instead bring inventive songwriting and lyrics to the table as well.”
“The crowd cheered them on with boot-stomping and clapping. The Bottlecap Boys fill venues with energy, which you can feel in their album.”
“this rollicking exuberance is actually being fueled by some fairly virtuosic musicianship: the intricate harmonies in "The Dream," the frequent upright bass, the caesuras, the changes in tempo. "Try to Try" has some fancy footwork in the chorus, the likes of which I've only heard in light opera. Fingers and picks fly. This isn't just another whiskey-addled, old-timey band with pawnshop instruments; these are serious musicians playing fun music. . . The up-and-coming Pacific Northwest band will be one to watch for . . .”
". . . a lively set which lived up to their boot-stomping reputation. The band members bill themselves as “pure, insatiable energy guaranteed to lift your spirits,” and they delivered."
