" I became an instant fan, I have always loved southern rock...The Allman Bros, Skynyrd, ZZ Top, the list is endless and the guys from Southern Fried play them all, and they play them well. Upon hearing the band for the first time, they took to the stage and I can honestly say it was incredible. If you love Southern Rock, or Classic rock for that matter...experience Southern Fried." - Scott Penfold, Y108 Hamilton.

" Southern Fried is a band that doesn't make you choose between The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd " - Flairboy, Q107 FM Toronto

" I saw these guys share the stage with the Georgia Satellites a couple years back, and to be quite honest...they absolutely stole the show!!" - J. Michaels, Toronto
