“After listening to the first song (on their CD), I was hooked,” writes Matt Zeltzer of THE SPARTAN. “Each song kept the same basic principles that seem to define the Feisty Piranhas: simple yet bold clarinet and sax lines, solid rhythm guitar, electrifying lead guitar, and an amazing amount of layers in the sound (four out of five stars).” “They bring so much energy!,” writes the VENTURA COUNTY STAR. Their previous CD, SHOCKED, received three Grammy entry Nominations with recently-released CD THE END expected to garner Grammy interest this year.
