Spadaro Keeps it Honest and Strong 
-Rege Behe - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review 

“Spadaro plays clean, lyrical leads on guitar that are reminiscent of the style of the late Jerry Garcia in their economy and fluidity.”

"The thing that I love about Patti's songs is that she is completely real in them," Jim Donovan (Rusted Root) says. "This authenticity and transparency made it easy for me to be a part of her recording. In addition to an honest and strong voice, her lead guitar playing is nothing short of remarkable."

"One of the things I love about music is it gets me centered," Spadaro says. "You hear athletes talking about being in the zone, being in the present moment, and I get that out of music. What's really cool is having a band where everybody is in the same place and the energy is flowing, everybody is syncronized with each other and creating in the moment."

Guitar Heroine
-Scott Mervis - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Patti Spadaro is the rare lead guitar playing frontwoman on the local scene, working in a bluesy jam-rock style somewhere between Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughn and the Grateful Dead.”

Asked about new influences on "Bringing Me Back" Ms. Spadaro pointed to Derek Trucks, John Mayer and Trey Anastasio. "Besides technical ability, each of them has a great feel. The Dave Matthews Band...The Grateful Dead...these players are outstanding improvisers. Which is what I love to do as well. I love that 'in-the-moment' feeling when I'm able to let loose and improvise a guitar solo. Music feels so good, and has the ability to wash away some of the every day stresses and clear the head a bit. Listening to these players does that for me, annd that's what I'd like to be doing for people."


"Patti and her band put on a hell of a show throughout, and if you want to hear some of the best music the Pittsburgh area has to offer, this is a great place place to start." 
-Harry Funk - Washington PA Observer-Reporter
