"Night People has just the right blend of world class soloists and virtuosic ... The blend of horns in Garrison's writing is singular and transformative. ...breathtaking harmonic structures... I've never seen a band like this. And thankfully they will be doing it again... Don't miss it!" -- Robert Bush, NBC San Diego and The Reader
"Here's the thing. This is one of the greatest jazz ensembles you probably haven't heard (or heard of if you're outside of San Diego.) The compositions and arrangements are outstanding and EVERY SINGLE PLAYER in this band brings a level of musicianship that I believe could stand up on any stage anywhere in the world. So, my musichead friends, discover them. See them live if you can...more than once, for it's never exactly the same. Dig and be dug." --Claudia Russell, Program Director & Jazz Host at Jazz 88.3
