“There was not a moment when the dance floor was not packed, even long after the beer was gone. Yes, you guys rock” — Rod De Witt, Andersen Valley Brewing Company

“The Mad Maggies...hit it home...leaving the audience begging for an encore.”Golden Gate [X]Press

“The Best Band Ever” ­— Howard Dillon, Bolinas Hearsay News

“One listen to La Pachulera, from the band's self-produced CD “Crazed and Enthused,” is all you need to know just how eclectic this band can be. The song kicks off with a syncopated Tex-Mex rhythm exploding into a rollicking Eastern European dance groove before settling back into that laid-back South-of-the-border feel – like klezmer musicians stranded at a well-lubricated Tijuana wedding party.”
— Greg Cahill, for The Argus Courier
“We LOVE the Mad Maggies! ... You have got to experience this band…” — Cadenza Music, St. Paul, MN

“I absolutely LOVE your music! Maggie’s voice is so of  another era... Don't you just want to rub it all over your face?” — L. Baker-Ronco
