The Swingin' Swamis / Press

“The last time I saw the Swingin' Swamis, they were performing at a Democratic election event attended by Barbara Mikulski, Martin O' Malley and other politicos in Dorchester County, where there may be more one-armed oystermen than registered Democrats. Democratic gatherings on the shore can be somber affairs, but the Baltimore-based combo, known as one of this area's premier party bands, injected enough levity into the proceedings to make it truly fun. That party vibe permeates this disc, from it's Perez Prado opener ("Sway") to the closing Wilson Pickett tune ("Mustang Sally"). Such tunes make a great calling card for the band, but it's the handful of original tunes, especially "No Foolin' Around" and "Premonition," that warrant closer attention. In fact, they suggest that the time has come for an entire CD of Swamis' songs.”

Baltimore Magazine

“The Baltimore sextet unveils Sookie Sookie, its third CD of eclectic classics and originals, this week. Ranging from mellow lounge standards to Isley Brothers funk and originals penned by founding keyboardist/guitarist Snackie Hillman, Sookie displays the Swamis’ talent for seamlessly mixing genres.”
