"It is rare that I have seen anyone perform on stage with the heart and passion that Lavonne does. Whether she has her feet on the ground or she's standing on the bar she will deliver an absolutely fabulous performance."
- from Jen Allen for this podcast/blog
"This band has become a monstrous rock and roll force in Iowa, bringing their ferocious style of blues-inflected rockabilly to parties and clubs all over the state. The band is fronted by the punk-as-fuck Wanda Jackson-esque local singer Lavonne McRoberts and she’s backed by a crack band that lays it down correct."
- from Nate Logsdon for Mumford's website
