"Onstage he is intense, prowling, ebullient; he referred to himself in an interview with NPR as “a human acoustic D.J.,” and he functions as convener and ringleader as much as singer.

The ensemble’s repertoire pulls from early jazz and classic funk, as well as more contemporary sounds.” - The New York Times LESS
