"Cole Quest and the City Pickers spread the good word of Bluegrass through clever original songs and a vast library of classics. Their unbridled energy, tight harmonies and instrumental virtuosity will turn you into a believer in the good book of acoustic roots music." - Steve Danielsson (Feast Of Music)
"Like a young romantic interlude, it's hot, it's tight, it's exciting and it leaves the crowd wanting more! They're like your very first dalliance in the musical arena of love! They'll leave you breathless and confused but satiated and spent!" - Michael Weinstein
