About The Event
"Songwriting is the key to this gem of a record. Sam has an innate skill to infuse jazz and blues on top a bed of roots rock. Think early Steve Winwood. The arrangements are tight. The vocals are clean(especially the backgrounds) and the lyrics are meaningful. Signature track is “Down to You” which features a killer trumpet solo by Eric Benny Bloom."
– DERRICK FREEMAN, WWOZ HOSTS' FAVORITE RECORDINGS 2017
"Their first release is a five-track jubilee of infectious songs and note-worthy musical performances."
– PHILLIP SMITH, PHILLY CHEEZE'S
ROCKIN' BLUES REVIEWS
"Price and crew share the love and positive vibes in music that’s slinky and funky with a groove you can move to. The group’s self-title debut CD percolates with juicy Hammond B3 riffs, big chunky bass lines (courtesy of Price himself), skiffling drums and soulful vocals. Put on your party shoes and prepare to dance..." – KATI SCHARDL
"So from the heart, it hurts." – ROCKIN' JAKE
