REVIEWS

Mill River Band: Deep Musicians with a Cool Sound

"The thing about the Mill River group that you may not even notice as your toe is tapping rhythmically and youíre suddenly feeling a whole lot better than you have in a while, is the ease and expertise of their manner. These are deep and long-time musicians who can adjust the balance with a silent nod in the middle of a piece, who ebb and flow with leads and backups and who add grace notes and flourishes that make their music, well, delightful." 
Dan England, FAIRFIELD MINUTEMAN,  1/15/2005


Homey Band of Locals

"Discriminating music fans eager to experience a unique blend of acoustic rock, country blues and western swing...  This eclectic group, performing on guitar, fiddle, mandolin and percussion and singing three-part harmony, has been known to expand its sixty-song repertoire and cater to patrons with an appetite for the Grateful Dead or the Beatles." 
Roseann Spengler, WESTPORT MAGAZINE / MOFFLY PUBLICATIONS, 1/5/2005

 

Making the Band:  Mill River Residents Show Itís Never Too Late 

"Sixty songs currently exist in the bandís repertoire, and the group continues to explore new arrangements and sounds such as country swing or blues or classic numbers, the Beatles, Hank Williams, or the Grateful Dead. Thereís even some good old Americana music. 
Michele Herrmann, FAIRFIELD CITIZEN-NEWS, 10/20/2004
