"Mosquito Cabaret's name alone evokes an appropriately wild and dreamlike image that sums up their sound and performances: a buzzing, barefooted hodgepodge of gyspy jazz and theatrical punk. Not to be missed!"
- Sarah Serrano, O'Connor Brewing Co.
"...from gypsy-jazz, Polish polka, Irish-themed punk, and folk into one spectacular, blissful swinging bar party"
- Jeff Maisey, Veer Magazine
"...always worth pausing to appreciate a timeless and lament filled piece of folk music"
"...of immense delight in which to lose any sense of self-consciousness and just dance because there is no other option"
