“““Tequila Mockingbird Luck And Trouble The album takes the listener through several different types of rock, all done impeccably. The opening track "Blue" recalls the jam band feel of Santana with bluesy guitar riffs. But that vibe ends when the song ends—this album has far more than blues. The heavy "Actual Size" uses grunge-y guitar chords and deep, grumbling vocals from the frontwoman. The album takes a turn to country on "Luck And Trouble," which incorporates skillful slide guitar. Giving the record even more diversity, songs like "La Carta" and "Wrong?" sound like old ska-punk bands like Save Ferris or Bif Naked with horns, guitar distortion, and an upbeat tempo. Luck And Trouble gives the listener an album that showcases a variety of genres. Crossing into several musical styles in the same album is a nice break from bands whose albums consist of slight variations on the same song. Grade: A”””

““Luck and Trouble is the strongest testament yet of this longtime Denver band’s ability to shake loose the branches of more sedentary, laid-back alternative roots-rock. Give Wendy Clark some serious credit here, she stands toe-to-toe with Chrissie Hynde in the ‘chicks that rock’ department.” - Chris K., The Colorado Sound (Jan 15, 2010)”

“In addition to your votes, we've included a Top 10 list of our own. While we didn't see eye to eye on everything, it looks like when it comes to FBR, Flobots, Tequila Mockingbird and Paper Bird, great minds think alike. One thing I think we can all agree on, as noted by voter Paula Boddicker: "We are so lucky to have so many great local bands!" Additional Facts Our picks 4. Tequilla Mockingbird - "Luck and Trouble" ”

“The five-piece, fronted by singer Wendy Clark, mixes it up throughout the record, from the driving opener "Blue" and the alt-country of the title track to the bouncy ska of "La Carta" and a few straightforward rockers like the chugging "Actual Size." Since the band's lineup hasn't changed in eight years, it's damn impressive that its members are still getting into trouble together.”
