“A worldly flair is injected into all of these good time dance songs, but never at the expense of their American rock roots, with front man Alex Mitnick’s hearty voice being the spoon that stirs this yummy gumbo.” – O ut With The Kids
“Feel-good, hand-clapping, toe-tapping music crafted with appealing multicultural rhythms and lyrics drawing inspiration from the natural world.” – Parents’ Choice Foundation
“A colorful blend of musical styles and clever lyrics for the whole family. Musical depth combined with witty lyrics that talk directly to kids. It’s an all-ages fun time!”
– Kathy O’Connell, host of WXPN-FM’s Kids Corner
