"These guys are really skilled at what they do. They actually play accompaniment to the poetry, even though they have never heard the poetry before. The accompaniment is appropriate to the mood, style, and rhythm of the poetry, almost flawlessly."

"“Magicians! Wizards! The Jeff Robinson Trio is the best poetry band in the country,” says Marc Smith, originator of the first Poetry Slam."

““The Jeff Robinson Trio is one of the most innovative and revolutionary bands of today that mixes the old with a new kind of flavor.””

““Whether they’re the fierce undercurrent of a poet’s musings or simply jammin’ on their own, the Jeff Robinson Trio exhibit a power and confidence that flirts with perfection.””

"The Lizard Lounge may be below street level, but battling head-to-head with words isn't an underground movement anymore. Whether you call it performance poetry, slam or spoken word, this literary art is definitely necessary."

"Jeff Robinson, Minister of Love in the Jeff Robinson Trio and host of the PoetryJam every Sunday at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge (1667 Mass. Ave.), has the room, and room in his heart, for all."
