"Special kudos to the onstage band, especially guitar artist Joel Hoekstra."
-David Edward Hughes, talkinbroadway.com
"The singers are backed by a scalding hot band, so scalding that the audience remained
standing until the musicians the last note of exit music. In nearly 30 years of covering
Valley theater, that's the first time this critic has seen that happen."
-Kyle Lawson, The Arizona Republic
"This is not your prototypical backup band. Guitarist, Joel Hoekstra has the chops to cover any style."
