“Then Scafone’s on stage, twisting, gyrating and owning every inch like some sort of possessed, evangelical-satanic dervish.  It’s at once nostalgic performance art, killer show band and rock ‘n’ roll wonder.”

“On a 100 degree Sunday afternoon ... Her raven hair was set off by a bosom glistening with sweat like a gypsy woman ragged on crank, and when she kicked off her number, “Save My Soul,” I must report that despite the pervasive swelter, goosebumps raised on both my arms and a chill shot up and down my spine.

... Rio Scafone is a firebrand, a hell-spitting minx whose core, however, is hope and salvation.  And, frankly, enough earthly sex appeal to move tectonic plates.  Whipping an audience into a frenzy worthy of a revival tent is akin to water rolling off a duck’s back for Rio and company.”

“Rio was so captivating that it didn’t matter if you were male or female, your eyes didn’t want to leave her for a second.  I was completely locked in on her.  Watching the band felt like an honor; like we should be thanking them.  I was convinced I was witnessing a legend being born, seeing next generation icons.”

“Some artists don’t have that camaraderie after decades in the business, but Rio and the Rockabilly Revival have more than that: undeniable musicianship, perfect harmonies and contagious energy ... Just ask the three folks in the back who were so mover by the music, they caught the ‘Spirit.’”
