Former backing and guest musicians:
"Being with the Park-O-Lators and their wonderful 'original blend' music of Roots Americana is a reat treat for me, unlike anything else I have done before. It is fresh, rhythmically and lyrically and has a basic integrity that creates an enjoyable and danceable sound."
