"Jason Vivone & the Billy Bats are not only one of the hottest blues bands in Kansas City, but maybe the entire country."
SHEA O'CONNOR, ST. JOSEPH NEWS-PRESS (Jun 09, 2011)
"Jason Vivone and the Billy Bats are a band bursting with attention-demanding power. Expert use of searing slide, interesting instruments, world-class original music, and head turning vocals makes the Billy Bats a must-see. Sporting no small dose of showmanship, Jason often jumps into the audience to glad-hand while ripping through solos with pinpoint precision -- to the elation of the people at large. Professional and crowd-pleasing, Jason and his dexterous band have everything it takes to win hearts and minds, something they certainly have no trouble doing on every stage."
