“Neighbors strike a chord with their labor of love” FOX 9 NEWS
“Joe kicked off the set with a version of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride and Joy.” Guitar masters like Vaughan have the uncanny ability to play rhythm and lead at the same time. That’s tough enough to do on an electric guitar, but Joe pulled off a more than credible rendition with his acoustic." -TheMinnyApple.com
"A likeness to Bon Jovi and Stevie Ray Vaughan with a
throw of Jazz, beautiful guitar work with impressive vocals."
-Crimson Clear Productions

"Check out Joey's hot electric guitar licks on "I Can Tell" and "Mess Around." It's a sure bet that Joey Flip is sure to be heard for years to come."
