Testimonials

January 10, 2007
“Forever and a Day……..Released in December, the disc is a polished showcase for the group's cosmopolitan, Mediterranean sound. It's anchored by Spoto's lively, lilting and sometimes poignant melodies and accented by soaring and saucy bow work by violinist Etelka Nyilasi.”
Elizabeth Yates – Entertainment Reporter, The Expositor, Brantford, On.

January 19, 2007
“In Forever And A Day, The Acoustics take you somewhere else -- the Mediterranean, an outdoor cafe, an old town square, the sound track of a European movie. The Hamilton band, together since the late '90s, rubs circles onto the glass of its distinctive instrumental sound, continuing to perfect it and give it clarity. You can hear different flavours -- Gypsy Kings and world/roots -- but the dynamic of the players, especially Alfonso Spoto on accordion, Etelka Nyilasi on violin and Enzo Spoto on guitar, is all their own. I especially liked Cuban Nights, Lost In A Dream and Urban Gypsy.”
Jeff Mahoney – Entertainment Reporter, The Spectator, Hamilton, On.

The Acoustics, for their CD Forever and a Day, came in 2nd place for World Album of the year at the 2009 JPF Music Awards. In Nashville TN. Aug. 29, 2009.
