“I can't remember a better debut gig from a new band that was so exciting than tonight's Darlington RnB Club gig with Big Wolf Band” Mike Prendergast - Gasto Promotions
“Played a blinding set. With a mix of self-penned blues and rock and a few classic covers, they wowed the audience with seamless guitar solos, funky takes and catchy blues shuffles. A fantastic band live, so well worth seeking them out if they are in your area. They will certainly be invited back to The Big House Blues Bar later this”
Rosy Greer - Lancashire Blues Archive and Independent Reviewer
“Such a tight band with a wonderful groove to their playing. If any of you get a chance to see this awesome band live, please don’t hesitate and treat yourself to a copy of their superb album. You will not be disappointed” steviejblues.co.uk
