...the Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band is a trio just bursting with riches. Michael Doucet's keening, heartbroken songs and bluesy, glissando-strewn fiddling, Marc Savoy's springy accordion playing and Ann Savoy's been-through-the-mill singing and determined guitar rhythms were all so authentic you could almost smell the chicken cooking". --The Glasgow Herald

Catching this expert, unpretentious trio is about the closest most of us will ever get to hearing an authentic Cajun bash on a screened-in bayou porch. The Savoy Doucet Cajun Band scrapes, strums, and wails its way through genre chestnuts and in-the-traditional originals with an uncommonly warm, congenial virtuosity. --Chicago Tribune

Savoy Doucet Cajun Band moves back several decades to the sources of today's styles. Many of the songs might have disappeared completely if they had not been revived by these dedicated musicians. Their acoustic trio has a diverse, fresh, and lively sound, with spirited solos and intuitive interplay. -- Atlantic Monthly
