DAVE DAVIES legendary lead guitarist and founding member of The KINKS; "I love the gritty guitar sound of the band".
IMAN LABABEDI EDITOR-IN-CHIEF AT ROCK NYC LIVE show review of The Straightjackets opening up for Tommy James & The Shodells at the Ridgefield Playhouse 4/13; "the evening was a thrill of 60s rock and roll, opening with a terrific cover band called The Straightjackets. The gift the Straightjackets have, with just bass, drums, and one guitar, is just how capable they are of playing everything from “I Can’t Explain” to “Theme From The Monkees” to “Joy To The World”. What the Straightjackets do is skillfully underplaying: they let these great songs do the work for them and everyone comes out sounding better for it. I was so impressed I turned to Sohojohnny and recommended he sign them for his annual Stamford disco and rock show in August".

The Straightjackets are an authentic rock solid cover band.
I was pleasantly surprised not to hear a single song that sucked. Excellent musicianship and outstanding song choices. I look forward to seeing you again!
