“The band’s willingness to take risks sonically and theatrically made it an exciting local act to follow. … ‘They’re becoming their own influence. I love bands that begin influencing themselves. They aren’t afraid to get up and be themselves. If you look back at the things that moved us over the years, it’s bands like that.’ says Grammy-winning producer Bruce Irvine”
- Courtney Devores – Charlotte Observer

The band’s electric sound hits you hard and up front without any of the flash … Singer Deirdre Kroener has some of the best rock vocals in town …

their fan base will build quickly.”
- Jeff Hahne – Music Editor, Creative Loafing

“Grown Up Avenger Stuff’s a definite “who to see” on the
