The Buzz

“… a band that rides in the pocket alongside such new-jack acidjazzers as Karl Denson, Galactic and their brassy brethren. But the roots of the Boston Horns go back to the soul-jazz of the late '60s and the proto-funk of the Crusaders, Tower of Power and Melvin Sparks, whose exquisitely greasy lines grace some of `East Coast Funk.’” - Boston Herald

“...Boston Horns lay down a classic sound that is the pillar of all things good and groovy in today's onslaught of fusion.” - Jambase

“From jazz to funk and well beyond, the Boston Horns have it goin' on!” - All About Jazz

“… from the early days with The Blues Meanies, which had them backing the Del Fuegos, among others, to the years as the conceptually outrageous Heavy Metal Horns, which put them on the road with then-chart toppers Extreme, to their work over the past ten years as the Boston Horns — a busy decade which finds the Horns comfortable and confident, opening for monster funk acts like Tower of Power and bringing the band, and its powerhouse sound, to a headlining tour in Japan.” -North Shore Art Throb
