"easily one of the best groups I've ever seen in over two decades in NYC - really amazing."
- Jacob Sacks
There is nothing careful about how this band plays. In fact, they seem to have thrown caution to the wind as they embark on their daring artistic journeys. There is no facade, no pretension, here, just the fierce drive to break through into the deep interior of music that somehow unites us all. VAX is inspiring.
- Cisco Bradley, Jazz Right Now
"Unique, engaging, and often very funny, Vax is a satisfying concert experience, musically deep while being entertaining."
"Part jazz, part free-improv, part performance art, part circus sideshow, VAX is one of those musical acts that simply has to be seen and experienced live to fully appreciate its theatrical quality."
"I was expecting a good set, but what ensued was way beyond good.
There were no scores. They had worked at this piece in over twenty four hours of rehearsal. They weren't paying each other with money, rather commitment and time. They had found a common goal among them, and decided to pursue it. They were a group. They were a thing.
It was an example of the highest potential of the great musicians of this city (NYC). People need to experience it."
