"In the proud spirit of good music and a swingin time, Prairie Cats come across with a great release in 'Til the Daytime Fades. Such tunes as 'Five Martinis And A Beer' & 'Not In The Mood' make the CD both fun and a good time for all who are listening..."
JK from the Evolution of Swing on 91.9 FM WNTI, New Jersey
"...smooth and polished...not much new music is coming out like this anymore...a modern swing feel with great songs and different styles...this CD will get a lot of airplay..."
Swanktown Radio, Minneapolis / St. Paul

"...14 cuts of big time original swing that's a blast...nice balance in tempo & mood. These cats are hot & you'll have fun all night long!"
Bo Lewis, Bo Lewis Big Band Dance Party
"...stronger songs and a more confident sound...enough variety from track to track to keep listeners interested throughout the album. Even swing music skeptics find themselves chanting along with the Cats. In other words, the Cats are a good thing getting better." [read full article]

"...sophisticated, tight, soulful and righteous!"
EmJay, Omaha, Neb.
"A frisky ensemble (that plays) with a noticeable confidence...tight and punchy...braiding traditional and modern swing, big band jazz, rockabilly and pop, with a serious brass presence. Prairie Cats are just as sharp live, and more unpredictable."
"...would sound at home on any of the Omaha radio stations that played...'Jump Jive and Wail'..."
Jim Minge, Omaha World-Herald
"...(The Big One) is one of the top albums of 1999."
Swanktown Radio, Minneapolis, MN
"...the Cats burned on stage with its brand of smart swing that's never content to be just dance floor music, even within a single song."
Greg Bueno, Austin360.com
"...(The Big One) swings from start to finish."
"Wanna be our house band?"
Todd and Tyler, Z-92
"Wanna be our house band?"
Free Beer and Hot Wings, 89.7 The River
"...a pleasure to see. The band, complete with horns, draws on (Jeff) Koterba's guitar, front and center. Sporting energy and enthusiasm aplenty, their sound measures up favorably to national touring bands..."
B.J. Huchtemann, The Reader
"Very danceable and a pleasure to listen to..."
