"...The new album, Counting Alligators, is five original songs, five traditional tunes and one bouncing and rollicking version of Billy Briggs' "Chew Tobacco Rag."My latest theme song is "Satisfied,"……"Harlem" has a horn arrangement that makes you feel like you're sitting in the Cotton Club…..
"Their sound was very much from the "old days", with deep roots tunes, and a distinct feeling of flapper girls and art deco, prohibition and Model T's. The depression era songs and American folk songs were a great and honest refresher..."
"...a taste of Southern folk and blues, spinning both country and jazz into a musical depiction of America's Southern roots."
"A delightful group with a rock solid sexy old time vaudville hill-billy groove"
"In a pinch, Pines and his pair of cohorts might be described as a group that makes the type of American roots music that sounds good coming out of a busted AM radio speaker."
