“It’s not every day that you’re completely blown away by a band. However, at their CMJ Festival showcase at Sullivan Hall, Toughcats managed to put the entire room in awe.” (Elise Yablon, NYC Examiner)
“They are one of the most creative and inventive bands going today. They manage to be artsy, melodic, down-to-earth, accessible, and a hell of a lot of fun all at the same time.” (Sam Pfeifle, Portland Phoenix)
“Toughcats have just as much Tom Waits as twang in their sound. Their album ‘Piñata’ combines old-timey picking with a rock edge, all buoyed by a sense of humor, some wicked vocal harmonies and a whole lot of energy.” (Emily Burnham, The Bangor Daily News)
