"Becky and the Swingin' Bards are one of the very favorites at Main Streets Market & Cafe. People always smile when they know they will be playing!"
-- Ellen Schmidt
"Another epic night. Newbies are amazed that they get to hear this level of musical talent in a small town café. I was so tired going in, but you were the musical wind beneath my wings."
-- Dawna Provost
"This band gets an A+ in all categories: excellent musicianship, tight harmonies, classic song selection, and an easy, natural rapport with the audience. Becky is a great singer & front-person... a Master of Ceremony leading the band and getting the crowd involved. Regardless of the venue, an infectious good time is had by all, and as is always evident from the sea of familiar faces, this 6-piece outfit outfit keeps bringing 'em back, show after show!"
-- Jon Rowland
"Their music is phenomenal"
-- Stephen Bernardi
"Behold she doth teach the torches to burn bright, for her beauty hangs upon the cheek of night like a rich jewel in an ethiope's ear.......no scratch that....they may have read the bard. Let's try: What a great party band. Fun songs, each with the requisite dose of blues and soul, delivered by a foxy female singer who knows how to keep a crowd entertained, backed by a swinging rhythm section, and two really fine soloists on piano and guitar. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes."
-- Hatrack Gallagher
"The soulful passion and seasoned musicianship grabs you from their first note. Becky and The Swinging Bards are tight and right. Becky leads her band of consummate professionals with her pure voice that ranges from heartfelt ballads to sexy, gutty blues and rock classics. She owns every song she sings. She channels Aretha, Bonnie Raitt and Patti Page!! Her "Bards" ROCK with licks and leads that will blow your mind. You gotta see them. Be ready to smile, dance and be led on a wonderful journey through music's greatest moments."
--John Pagliassotti, Drummer for Becky a lifetime ago
