"A rousing, blow-the-roof-off-the-sucka, 15-member ensemble that has to be seen and heard to be believed…" – RG Magazine

"The best bands, like this one, know they have a job to do. If you have an arse at all, they are here to kick it for you...Van Zandt’s lifetime love affair with rock n’ roll, in all its myriad forms, shines through in every note played and sung tonight. A great show." – Hot Press

“It is joyful, infectious and life-affirming. The kind of show you can enjoy without knowing any of the music. If you get the chance to see this configuration of The Disciples of Soul, we urge you to see it.” - Planet Slop
