"A good natured riot this way comes from Greensboro, N.C.....armed with Fender Telecasters, the Grand Ole Uproar hearken to the wilder days and ways of Waylon Jennings and his fellow band of renegades. Songs including “One Horse Blues” and “Clumsy Tongue” bespeak a raucous band with considerable musical chops. Splices of steel guitar coincide with Fenders and fun for a sound that rocks the country as in days of old renewed. Grand Ole Uproar  … indeed."                                                                  -- Tom Netherland, Herald Courier  

"The Grand Ole Uproar’s new album, Good Long Spell, “explores the ingredients of rock ‘n’ roll from zydeco and the music of Louisiana, to blues flavored with early electric Dylan and country influenced by the Texas Tornado Doug Sahm” -- Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress

"Greensboro’s The Grand Ole Uproar recalls The Grateful Dead at its most concise (particularly the band’s 1970 one-two peak of Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty), pairing deliberately loose folk with Texas twang and electric textures. (Think: “Uncle John’s Band” in double-time.)"                                              -                                            - Patrick Wall, Free Times, Columbia, SC  

"...a band practically born from the Rolling Stones' 'Country Honk'...”                                                               --Ryan Snyder, Yes Weekly, Greensboro, NC 

"Back in the mid-90’s The Black Crowes were mixing up Lowell George and Levon Helm with early 70’s rock bands and Sly Stone. The Grand Ole Uproar take it further, lending their country carnival sound a back porch feel and mellow-down-easy carefree vibe."                                                                                                                    --Brian Tucker, Star News Online, Wilmington, NC

"Greensboro, N.C.'s Grand Ole Uproar might just be the peanut-butter-cups of music. They've taken two musical styles that would seem to have little in common, country and jam, and combined them with passion, skill and humor."                                                                      --Vincent Harris, Spartanburg Herald-Journal


“It’s a hive of rare hornets. It’s a troupe of wildmen wailing for warm weather, understanding, and justice. Mournful and sublime, sublime and mournful. ”                --George Singleton, author of Half-Mammals of Dixie and Why Dogs Chase Cars


“The Grand Ole Uproar will be burning up the highway soon just like Waylon and Willie did.”                           --Bruce Piephoff, Greensboro, NC
