"Ear Buzz Album Review"

...This entire album is a virtual journey to a time when music was created to enrich the listener. Their overwhelming positivity is wholly matched by the musicianship, as the music is as clear as the message: Set your troubles aside and dance, its time to get down. MM - Ear Buzz

"Editor's Pick on CD Baby"

A stellar effort. After years as a support act, Greg & Rhonda finally get the chance to show what they can do. A welcome effort from veterans of the Indy music scene. Can't wait for the sophomore release! Go get 'em. 4 Stars

"Live Show Review from Richard Propes"

Independent Critique
Have you ever had the experience of discovering a band that just truly resonated with your soul? You listen to their songs, absorb their lyrics and watch them live and find every cell of your being experiencing joy? The acoustic duo of "Rhonda and Greg" is such a band. Combining funky and soulful music with inspiring and lively melodies, the duo of Rhonda and Greg Baker somehow manage to blend entertainment with inspiration and flat-out rock solid grooves. The greatest thing about "Rhonda and Greg," though, is that what you see on stage and hear in their music is truly a reflection of their artistic vision and integrity. While some artists will record a feel good, heart-tugging song because it sells, with "Rhonda and Greg" their songs reflect who they really are as evidenced by a true dedication to using their gifts to improve the world and support a variety of social causes. There are bands that somehow manage to always leave a smile on your face. For me, the acoustic duo of "Rhonda an Greg" is a band that makes me laugh, cry, think, feel, celebrate, reach out and just plain smile.
