“How do you possibly spice up the acoustic musical gumbo cooked up by Jerry Garcia over his 50 years of pickin’? You need more than great players, you need highly creative, innovative, spice masters to make it hot and fresh and imminently danceable. You need Painted Mandolin!”
Tom Miller, Concert Coordinator, Don Quixote’s International Music Hall, Felton, California.
"Painted Mandolin has hit on an amazing combination of symbiosis playing old Jerry Garcia tunes, traditionals, and the good ol' Grateful Dead. They get their audiences up and moving!" Jay Saber, The Wheel Company
"Joe Craven brought me to tears during a most heartfelt fiddle solo in Peggy-O. I had to put down my camera, I couldn't see through the viewfinder with tears welling up like that. And that, my friend, is why I go see live music." Mike Pegram, Photographer
