From Doc Watson:
“I’ve listened to the music the Lazybirds play and I think it is a good variety of blues, jazz and that good old ragtime sound and you will hear the flavor of that in anything they play. If you want some good music, have these boys come out and play for you. I guarantee you will enjoy what they do.”
From Sandy Semeonoff, Celtic Music Radio (UK); February 2011:
“Terrific! Just unpretentious good time music. Fabulous taste in material and honest singing and playing that is tight and tasty without being at all technoflash. The sort of group you want to join!…or at the very least see live”
From Ketch Secor, Old Crow Medicine Show; Nashville, Tennessee; September 5th, 2010:
“From our earliest days bumming around Boone, the Old Crow boys knew it was the Lazybirds who were the best musicians on the scene. Why after all it was the Lazybirds who played those infectious country blues and that feverish hillbilly swing which got all the girls going down on King Street. Back then the ‘Birds played the downbeat for every picking party in town; we listened on in awe to their incredible syncopation, ears pricked to hear the deep body of songs they played, all of us Old Crow boys new in town and hearing for the first time in a long time that familiar tongue of musical kin. It was the Lazybirds–Mitch and Jamey, Jay and Andy– who welcomed us in and got us our first gigs in the High Country; who taught us dozens of songs, and how to play ‘em with finesse because if Old Crow was down home, Lazybirds were uptown.
