“It’s the effortless lyrical and musical wit that keeps the band from becoming just a novelty act. Filled with plucky narrative songwriting and heartbreaking characters, the band’s period-style originals are both authentic and fresh.”- Emma Downs, The Journal Gazette
“Lead singer Lyndsy Rae Patterson is a spitfire, a ball of energy endlessly prancing and kickstepping across the stage in a crazed fusion of jazz moll and rag doll puppet with half her strings cut off.” – Paul F. P. Pogue, Nuvo.
“The for-real gorgeous experience is listening to Patterson take Helms’ witty lyrics and infuse them with a beauty that is one part Billie Holiday, one part Ella Fitzgerald and all parts heart and soul.” – Deborah Kennedy, Whatzup
“These youngish bucks (and doe) provide fine entertainment for you eyes and ears.” – Andy Bean, of the Two Man Gentlemen Band
“On their second short player The End Times Spams Band show that they can hold their own with any other band out there playing pre-big band jazz. These five folks know from “hot” with their early blues-influenced take on hot jazz.” – Sepiachord
“The kazoo growls and the banjo punches and the head spins, grinning all the while. 2 is one of the more consistently satisfying discs I’ve listened to in quite a while.” Mark Turney, Whatzup
