"[David Rood] plays a smoky, evil trumpet with the soul of a harlot."
"He has been a guest performer with Three Weird sisters many times, adding brassy werewolf howls during performances of Cat Faber's Least of My Kind... He also adds sublime and sweet melody to Brenda Sutton's Pole Star."
~ Dr. Mary Crowell
"After Hours was a huge crowd pleaser during the reception - thank you for your commitment of time and talent"

"And, I might add, you are the only band to move me to dance. Ever. In all my 47 years."
~ Peter Alway on Play It With Moxie!, January 2008
