QUOTES

They Said What?
"The Strange Tones are a fine funky band that plays rockin' roots music with the fervor of true believers. Their sound is stripped of gratuitous flash because these guys know Jimmy Reed's secret, that one note is better than a hundred, especially if it's the perfect one".
John Foyston, THE OREGONIAN
The Strange Tones turn in a rip roaring, label defying bunch of great tunes”
