Here's what they say about The King Bees

Kenneth Johnson, The Charlotte Observer:

"The band is led by the sassy Penny Zamagni on bass and vocals; she can belt it out with the best of them. She's backed by a superb band highlighted by the burning riffing of guitarist Rob Baskerville."

Gary Erwin, Promotor, Producer, Musician, DJ-BLUES IN THE NIGHT, Charleston, SC:

Re: POLLENATIN' - "...a party in a box...a dozen rockin' gems... they have lovingly embraced the blues in all its traditional power and creative potential... ferocious guitar...a trailerload of hot licks and vintage tone...passionate but daredevilish fretwork will surely move Baskerville further into the ranks of blues guitar heroism."

Norman Darwin, in England's Blues and Rhythm:

Re: BOOGIE BUZZ - "Excellent...Queen Bee Zamagni has a strong, slinky, swinging voice used to good effect on every number...Fine straight blues all the way...tasty."

J. James, Greenline:

"Blues purists with impeccable taste and chops to match."

France's Soulbag:

Re: BOOGIE BUZZ - "Three stars."

Diedre Coakly, The Gadsden (Ala.) Times:

"...could have a roomful of librarians stomping and screaming."

Gary Erwin, Low Country Blues Society Newsletter, Charleston SC:

"The King Bees burned for almost two hours. Rob Baskerville was in especially inspired form, blasting Fender salvoes into the crowd. Queen Bee Zamagni sang her heart out from behind the bass, and visiting harp icon, Billy Branch sat in-- all turning the house upside down."

Martin Fullington, Out and About, Asheville, NC:

"Zamagni is a first class blues singer, one of the best I've heard...She is a singing/ song writing/playing componant any blues band would kill to have on board."

Alan Mouer, Charlotte's Best:

"...has its place with the Fabulous Thunderbird's first album...Both Clapton's FROM THE CRADLE and The King Bees' BOOGIE BUZZ are rich with that unmistakable authentic blues magic."

Loafer, Johnson City, TN:

"...stinging. Top of the line blues...Baskerville blisters the fretboard...his guitar work raises the roof and shakes the foundation."
