what they're sayin'.......

"The well-established RubberSideDown anchored the night with a Gibson-wielding classic rock-infused style that is suited to Betty's intimate environment but would fill every inch of an arena.."
-- SF Weekly

"Pure classic rock - top shelf - served straight up, no chaser"
-- Drum Magazine

"Not many bands can make Velvet Revolver look like a 'Chenille
Popgun,' but RubberSideDown offers a bit more bang for your buck.
.....crashing cymbals and thunderous bass lines, ZeroFighter takes us
back to the rock future. In a music market saturated with indie this,
pop that, RubberSideDown strives to be different and gets back to the
sort of rock seduction that makes Van Halen, AC/DC and Aerosmith
so appealing. Truthfully, this glam/rock sound is hard to come by."
-- The Owl Mag

"OK, these guys are about 10 minutes from hitting it really big. Their sound is sophisticated and smooth with touches of sarcasm. Musically rooted in classic rock with finishing touches in ultra-modern song writing and polished production. Hey, it works."
-- Victoria Joyce, Sugarbuzz Magazine

"RubberSideDown, an upwardly mobile San Francisco band that
sounds ready for arenas."
-- San Jose Mercury News

"With melodic, guitar-driven songs and insightful lyrics tinged with
pain.... sensual bass lines, penetrating guitars..."
-- Metro Active

"....alt songs flavored with early Brit punk, psychedelic kicks, grinding
grooves, and yes, scorching guitar....This is a smart, cohesive,
professional rock band. .... It's a rock radio-ready voice with an alluring
rough edge.....

"There's something to be said for the Real Deal.....From the first blam
of the guitars, and the hit of the drums on the opening song,
'Black Mountain Road', this band got my attention......
(lead singer and rhythm guitar player Kevin) Casey possesses that
rare blend......that spells rock star. So I stuck around. And the songs
pulled me in...."
