Demolition String Band

"While Elena Skye and Boo Reiner's did start out playing bluegrass, the cover of the group's second album alone tells you they drifted away -- into a blend of bluegrass, real and alt country, country rock, and rock and roll that they call "hardcorn grindgrass fullbarn stompdown twangadelix." Reiners has always been a stupendous guitarist, showcased here on his original instrumental Boonanza and the multiple overdubs of Wisteria but Skye, who wrote or co-wrote ten of the thirteen tracks, sings eleven of them (Reiners gets her Thinkin' Bout Drinkin') and plays mandolin, has really blossomed in all three roles, positively radiating confidence and maturity on an album that pulses with energy.....From Who Taught You to Drinkin Whisky there's nothing even close to a dud track." JOHN CONQUEST, THIRD COAST MUSIC "Hailing from New Jersey, Demolition String Band infuse their fourth record with enough spirit, swagger and country swing to make you swear they’ve lived a thousand lifetimes in the heart of the Bible Belt. The band’s exuberance and style is personified by vocalist Elena Skye, whose sound resembles folk rock empresses of the late ‘60s. Her bandmates weave the soul of the ‘60s into their country/bluegrass hybrid. When at their best, the group seems to add something new to the stylistic world they inhabit (tracks like “Wisteria,” “Baby Come Home” and the instrumental “Boonanza")." POP MATTERS "Vocalist-songwriter Elena Skye delivers a haunting bluegrass ballad" MORE MAGAZINE, Playlist Of The Month "Though not a string band in the true sense, the Demolition String Band is a totally righteous country-rock outfit that’s a well-measured balance between melody and muscle. Together, Elena Skye’s big voice and Boo Reiner’s efficient but studly guitar-playing packed enough octane to juice an 18-wheeler. Pretty damned McCoy for a buncha Yanks." ORLANDO WEEKLY "The Demolition String Band will slay you when they open for Southern Culture On The Skids at The Bottletree" - BIRMINGHAM WEEKLY
