The fine folks over at The Deli NYC had some nice things to say about the band.  Here’s a sample:

Nees and Vos is one of those bands you listen to and wonder why they’re not the biggest thing around. Complete with Andrew Neesley’s trumpets, groove-shaking drums and even a backing gospel choir, this band swoops in and takes care of all your soul food needs.

Head on over to their blog to read the whole thing.

Here’s the Gramercy Theatre recap of our show on 12/9/11. What an amazing time we just had. I’m just about to pass out over all the work that went into this show. I have no idea where to begin… So I’ll just highlight some of my favorite moments.

First off–THE SHOW SOLD OUT! How awesome is that? At Gramercy Theatre! We hit at 8pm while the headliner, The Dirty Pearls, didn’t hit until 11pm. But that didn’t matter!

We got there for the sound check earlier that evening.  The front of house sound guy looked at our stage plot and asked me if I was joking.  I told him “Nah, we really have 18 people playing in the band,” with dead pan expression on my face no less. Thankfully, the staff was very accommodating and hooked us up with everything we needed.  Mics, equipment etc.  The guys from the band playing after us also helped us out by lending us a few pieces of their gear.  Thanks Brothers!

We hit the ground running with our ol’ standard Pretty Girl.  The crowd instantly lit up. Vos gave it his usual gusto along with powerful solos from Dave Richards on the tenor sax.

Next we did our rendition Gnarls Barkley’s Who’s Gonna Save My Soul. Man did the horn section shine on this tune.  We had seven horns on this show, hailing from far and wide. Frank Cohen on bass bone and Philip Dizack deserve a shout out on this tune.  Frank’s deep bass bone tone and Philip’s stylized trumpet playing lay a perfect foundation for Chris’ gut-wrenching singing.  Then Chris gave way to our three killin’ background singers, Tania Jones, Mel Flannery, and Amanda Brecker.  Those three girls can sing!

Angel came next. This is always one of my favorite tunes to rock out. Norman as usual killed it. I can say no more!

We then brought the temperature up even another notch and kicked off Shine Through, from our upcoming new album. Chris and I actually haven’t settled on a name for this tune yet, but we’re tentatively calling it Shine Though.  It begins with Normanblasting away on a big beat drum pattern that can only get your blood rushing. Jayme, on bass, lays down so many tasty licks.  We also heard from Greg Chen on piano as well as the rest of the horns and percussion.  In fact, everybody got a taste on this tune. Mike Gorham on trumpet, Philip Dizack on trumpet, Dave Richards on tenor sax, Ben Dobay on alto sax, Natalie Cressman on trombone, Frank Cohen on trombone, Mark McGinnis on tuba, Dave Whitman on percussion and Jake Goldbas on percussion; they all played a killin’ solo!

This all lead up to Matt Beck ripping it up on the slide guitar solo.  Can’t say enough about this dude.  Chances are if you’ve listened to the radio in the last ten years, you’ve heard this guy play the guitar!

To end our set, we turned to the first single from our upcoming album, Burn Me Down.  By the way, Burn Me Down has just eclipsed 10,000 plays on YouTube! Awesome! Can’t say enough about the band on this one. They brought the music to a new level. I should have just expected as such with all the wonderful talent assembled on one stage… I can’t wait to share this tune with more people live.

We ended the night listening to the following bands and enjoying a great hang. Thank you all you great people that came and gave your support. I can’t wait until the next time! Thanks you Brothers, Sex Slaves and The Dirty Pearls!
