PRAISE FOR WORKS BY ADAM BLOTNER
“Smart, keenly observed, and hilarious parody of the affectations of various types of music stars, ranging from bubble gum pop to country to rock. If you enjoy music and laughter, see this.” -Best NYC Comedy
“An all too brief jam session that hilariously lampoons a couple of decade’s worth of music…Mr. Blotner’s ability to parrot so many different styles of music in such a concentrated setting truly is impressive. Down to the smallest details, like the two-syllabled “yeah” in the chorus of Simon Never Said’s “Alone,” Mr. Blotner’s catalog amusingly zeroes in on things unique to each time period or type of music.” -Surreal Time Press
