"Bits of acoustic folk, ersatz California country pop, New Orleans swamp rock, Celtic airs and raucous pub rock float up to the surface of this stew, truly an amalgam of alien parts. For all that, an infectious good humour and energetic teamwork lend this record, GUMBO DREAMS, genuine appeal." - Greg Quill, Toronto Star

"Steve Goldberger's subversive THE NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE RHYTHM PROJECT ... the sounds on this disc are beautiful free flowing instrumental illustrations of life in tourist heaven...A sort of mash up of folk, soft rock and jazz combined in the aesthetic of a jam band... get your hands on this disc and wrap your head around the sounds." - Pulse Niagara

"... We had a great time last nite. I never stay for 3 sets as most times I'm bored with the material, but your original tunes were fun and funky and put a grin on my face. You guys set up such a fat groove last nite, I can't remember when I've heard a live band lay it down so tight. Good acoustics and overal balance last nite. Bass sounded solid and not boomy.. Good time for sure." - George Richardson - Toronto

"... I' just wanted to let you know that his new album is out and it rocks! It's called Gumbo Dreams and sounds just like its name A great cocktail of original songs with original sounds." " -Herve Oudet, "Americana in Paris" Radio Show, Paris, France

"...His voice and the music is as comfortable as a pair of good, broken-in Levis and he and his band, the Fringe Locals, are obviously having a GREAT time making their music .... " -C.L. in Atlanta

"...the nerve to be different..." - Don Campau - KKUP 91.5FM, Cupertino California
