“One of the 5 best things we saw at ShamrockFest… they certainly had the crowd dancing from the get go.”
– Kim Allegrezza, AXS (Mar 14, 2017)

“They present their version of intensified, fast folk … While many bands in this sector are simply muckers who specialize in Irish music, The Muckers belong to the other category: they play well-known songs in some unknown way. And who knows what is in The future follows, after all, “The Muckers” is a debut. In summary and for those who do not want to read between the lines – buy the thing!” (translated from German)
– Carsten, Celtic Rock Radio (Feb 10, 2017)

“In short (and aren’t all my reviews) a strong debut. Highlights include a great cover of Jackdaw’s Molly (fiddler Jeff Shaw is a transplanted Buffalo bhoy) and New York Girls. Eddie Conners is another standout and soon to be classic.”
– Mustard Finnegan, Shite’n’Onions (Dec 18, 2016)

“Sometimes a band comes along that you listen to it and you go ‘that is fantastic.’ That happens to be the case for the only Irish rock band in Atlanta… It’s the band called The Muckers.”
– Cabrina, Irish Power Hour (Oct 30, 2016)

“Their rendition of “Molly” is simply perfect and “Eddie Connors” is a kicks-ass number, one of the most “punk” moments on the CD. … The Muckers self-titled album is more than a St. Patrick’s Day CD.”
