Buffalo News (Ingrid Michaelson concert review)
'Funk-rock band grooves with hints of soul and jazz,
influenced by groups like Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and the
Robert Glasper Experiment.' -
Cory Perla, The
'His use of digital blips and beats as flourishes sound
something like Elvis Costello singing with the Postal Service.'
'Rob Falgiano took to the stage first. In a way, he was both

influences that conjure up a likable & sometimes funky sound.
His work vaguely resembles that of John Mayer’s earlier soft pop

alone, Neil Finn-like on the opener and sporting a mellow-soul
falsetto.' - Muse's Mus
