"Good News! We have been playing your new Album on WOMR 92.1 fm and WFMR 91.3 fm on not only my Blues show but on several other shows and the response has been terrific. The Chuck Berry song “Back to Memphis ” that you cover is updated perfectly with the horns and guitar and your spot on vocals. The same applies to the Lloyd Price piece “Questions” with the great drivin’ horn arrangement. Chuck Willis’s “Take It Like A Man” takes you back to the swingin’ glory days of the Savoy Ballroom. My personal fav is “Snatchin’ It Back”. It has that new soul revival sound that we all love. Take this as a compliment; it also sounds very Curtis Delgado like. “ON THE RIGHT TRACK” is a killer new album that is proof positive of our current Blues revival, nice going!" - T Gandolfo, WOMR/WFMR Cape Cod Community Radio

"Just love your new CD "on the right track"...I do dance aerobics to it every day!" - Lillian

"You guys were great!" - Ron & Lucille (2011 WaterFire)

"It's rare to find such a hoppin' sound these days, Mr. Ceresi. Glad you're out there doing what you do!" - Melissa (2011 WaterFire)

"Another great A+++ show with a band that holds the bar high musically and the performance / entertainment expectation for the audience as #1. A great song list with tempos that do not drive the audience off the floor. Take care and see you soon for more Ceresi Magic..." - Frank (re: WaterFire 2011)

"Yes, it was wonderful. Thank you so much Roger, for coming out again and joining us. It’s always a pleasure to have you in the Ballroom." - Kanoko (re: WaterFire 2011)

"Dear Roger Ceresi and his amazing All Stars, A million thank-you's for your outstanding performance this past Saturday May 28th, 2011. You put on an amazing show that kept the entire crowd dancing and smiling. So from all of us at WaterFire and everyone in attendance. Thank you, and we look forward to working with you for an 8th straight year." Gary, WaterFire Providence

"Got your new CD and it’s really sensational, much to my taste with lots of R&B flavor. By the way, you sound a lot like Curtis D. on “Snatchin’ It Back”, nice going." - T. Gandolfo re: "On the Right Track"

"Dear Mr. Ceresi, Had a blast listening to you & the band Saturday night. Incredible energy! I was the one extending my tripod up to the performers. I've posted some extracted frames from the videos I shot Saturday night and placed them here http://gallery.me.com/imagesdv#100414&bgcolor=black&view=grid. The first 15 were shot from 100 feet away (again, these are video frames, 30 every second, not still pictures). The rest were near the stage or dance floor........ Thanks, and again I thought the band was super!" - Wayne, re: Waterfire on 9/17/10

"Hey guys! Thank you SOOO much for a top notch evening Saturday! As always, the band was on fire! The benefit raised approx $6500 I believe (waiting on final figures still...). For sure, that was in large part due to the All Starz headlining the event!!! You guys are the best!!!" - Stacy re: 2010 Benefit for Mt. Hope Learning Center

"Hi Roger, I am a Blues DJ on WOMR 92.1 FM Cape Cod’s Community Radio Station. I also am on the Program Committee and serve on the Board of Directors. I’m our Blues coordinator and produce our Music Benefit Events. Caught you at the North River Blues fest and you guys were terrific." - T. Gandolfo

"Definitely # 7. They know a great band when they see and hear it. Keep it going.... by #10 we will submit a request to rename the event to RogerFire and the Boyzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!" - Frank (re: 2010 Waterfire)

"Hi Roger, I was at Duffy's on Sunday, dancing to the most wonderful music loved it. But what I loved just as much, is the fact that you mentioned our service people a few times, reminding everyone that we had a great time because our military people are protecting us. Just want to say "Thanks" and keep right on reminding people that freedom is not free. I really appreciate what you do-musically and in other ways, too! Thanks." - Pat

"Roger, I want to thank you so much for making our evening so special with great music and the special anniversary announcement!!

I look forward to catching you again when the opportunity arises." - Shirley

"Roger, None-the-less it was fabulous to see, hear and dance to the driving force you and your talented musicians comprise.

You've got it down so keep on doing it and we will all see you again..." - Frank

"Hey Roger, You guys where great last night, everybody enjoyed you! So, take it easy out there. Later.." - Jim (Deejay from West Hartford Swing)

"It was absolutely great to see and hear you yesterday. It just makes me miss hearing you that much more. I still love to hear you voice and you can still work a crowd better than anyone I've seen.
