“Review of our performance at Daryl's (as in Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates) House, November, 2017 by Wayne J. Keeley & Stephanie C. Lyons-Keely of Pillow Talk blog. "a six-person group of consummate musicians and vocalists who can play everything including jazz, swing, the blues, and even country and pop. The band has been around since 1975 and is still going strong. That is worth repeating even though you are not supposed to appear redundant in a review: the band has been around since 1975 and is still going strong. The band's founder, principal songwriter and arranger, vocalist, and keyboardist Cynthia Lyon, has more energy than that drum-playing rabbit you see on television all the time. The rest of the band members also possess some nice pedigrees. On tenor and also tax and flute is Collin Tilton who played on Van Morrison's iconic Moondance album. Just hearing Collin play his flute solo from Moondance was worth the price of admission."” - Wayne J. Keeley & Stephanie C. Lyons-Keeley
“ Eight to the Bar really brings it in [their]12th album…worth owning for the first three tracks alone.. the high-energy group is known for its swing, boogie-woogie.. but there’s even country themes in the new CD’s “Rock Me” (written by lead singer Brinna Jones), “Schoolhouse Rock”-echoes in “The Law of Attraction” (written by [Mike] Corsini) and a fun doo-wop number in “Never Let You Go”. The first three songs are ETTB at its swingin’ best: “That’s Neat, That’s Nice” (written by Terry Adams of NRBQ), “That Man” (a splendid David Schreurs tune recorded previously by European singer Caro Emerald) and “Baby, Why Can’t You Come on Home?” (written by Tilton and Lyon). The title cut is the last on the album, a 1 minute, 31 second ditty referencing the group’s amazing longevity (“bringin’ our swing to your green”).” - Joe Amarante
