8 out of 10 stars...this heavyweight blues-rock  (mix the Black Crowes, early Zep and the Allmans in a pot and reduce) is far from being a mess!”

— Classic Rock Magazine

Tony Bellantoni, like Jack White of the White Stripes/Raconteurs, excels in his 'guitarist as producer' role. Nice to know someone can still 'do it' like Jimmy Page used to. Looking for goose bumps? Play this loud!”

Vintage vibe, modern themes...'Talk Us Off the Ledge', delivers infectious songs and greasy riffs!" ”

— Trend Music

The Swag Hooks, a most blues worthy band from the New York/Connecticut area mix influences such as The Black Crowes, Led Zeppelin, Lenny Kravitz, Grand Funk and down and dirty Delta blues to come up with a satisfying release that's sure to satisfy not only fans of blues rock but of organic 70's styled hard rock as well. This band certainly knows how to 'groove' convincingly!!" ”
