"One band that is really coming into its own right now is the Defibrillators. The Defibrillators mix folk and blues riffs with clever lyrics to excellent effect. Although the band certainly distinguishes itself musically, what really sets them apart is their sense of humor and their willingness to laugh at themselves." Rich Hughes, Inside Connection
"...the funniest and well executed comedic compilation in a very long while. The Defibrillators are sure to warm your heart and loosen you up a bit." .... Good Times, Feb. 2003

CD Review

“The funniest comedic compilation in quite some time.” 

TV Performance

"The Defibrillators will have you reeling with their humorous take on the trials and tribulations of the baby boomer generation, proving that middle aged men cannot only rock, but be sexy too!"

Performance Review
The Night Guide

“The Defibrillators are a top notch band.  I was impressed with their professionalism, their showmanship, and they are entertaining as hell.” 

Performance Review
Aural Fix Magazine

“It's amazing how these guys can be so politically correct and politically incorrect at the same time.  Make way for some rip-roarin', soul shaking, make you wiggle blues!"

“They’re active, insightful and wry; they break conventions without
shattering their values. And their lyrics present a social perspective you’re unlikely to hear in any other blues ballads.”
Ron Roel – Newsday

CD Review in Newsday
“With tongue pressed firmly in cheek, they are good for more than a few good-natured laughs and some touching moments as well.”
Rick Green - Newsday

IMAC Review

“This group of aging musicians has never ceased to put on a show that has the audience screaming for more.”

Performance Review
Long Island Entertainment
“The Defibrillators are as much an experience as they are a band. Their songs are solid and their execution is flawless. But it's their presentation that takes this band over the edge into a realm of
Long Island legends." 
- Rich L’Hommedieu

"Musically and lyrically, one of the best live bands I've ever heard. The whole bar was into it laughing and enjoying the tunes. The one thing they proved that night was that age means only more experience."
...Greg Wilson, Inside Connection

"To round out the evening the headlining act was another Long Island staple, the one and only, The Defibrillators. This group of aging musicians has never ceased to put on a show that has the audience screaming for more. Lead singer, Sonny Meadows, in his red jacket and cane, leads the audience down a road that tells the story of aging and falling apart that I defy you not to smile and enjoy. I do have to make it a point to ask Bob Westcott where he got those shades from! The Defibrillators are as much an experience as they are a band. Their songs are solid and their execution is flawless. But it's their presentation that takes this band over the edge into a realm of Long Island legends."
