What the press is saying about The Dead Kenny Gs…

“Describing themselves as ‘punk jazz,’ the group embraces elements of jazz, metal and Afro-beat with a giddy abandon.” – Los Angeles Times

“Given its play-on-words moniker that simultaneously drives a sock down the mouth of smooth-jazz king Kenny G and recalls the early ’80s hardcore-punk band The Dead Kennedys, the powerhouse trio taps into a sound that fuses jazz and punk.  It’s a crazy mix played intensely by a group that has the skill and knowledge to pull it off.” – Alarm Magazine

“Dead Kenny Gs is a definitive statement of purpose: a resolute denunciation of all-things artificial. Skerik and his compatriots use their un-compromised art to draw an aesthetic line in the sand, they have fun at the expense of crass commercialization that contaminates our art, our food, and what passes for our political discourse. It’s fun, fearless, and, if you are the ass-shaking type, you can get down accordingly.” – Popmatters

“True to their name, the Dead Kenny Gs play decidedly unsmooth jazz that pokes, prods, and challenges.” – Utne Reader

“Bursts of thrashing metal alternate with cool sax-and-vibes segments, whetting one’s appetite for the tablas-fueled Indian jam ahead.” – Relix
