HORN TOOTIN'

“A Master Drummer and a Must See Artist”
---LOS ANGELES TIMES

“I'm a huge fan of Paul's music!”
---PETER MAX

“You Guys have yourselves a New Fan!”
---VIENNA YIP, Music Director JAZZ FM88.5 KSBR

"The Paul Peress Group - in my taste - is the best band that's ever played in the 14 years of the Kaslo Jazz Festival. These guys were stellar! The interaction between them, the connection with the audience, was all just amazing."
---KASLO JAZZ ETC FESTIVAL, British Columbia - Gusti Callis, Director

"Kenny Rogers brought the curtain down on the St. Kitts Music Festival, along with some great performances by Lonnie Liston Smith and Paul Peress."
---SUN ST. KITTS & NEVIS

"The first time Paul Peress and I played together, we had an incredible musical connection - something magical was happening! It felt like we had been playing together for years. There aren't many drummers who care about the music at the level that Paul does. I will remember that night for the rest of my life."
---ABE LABORIEL SR.

“Paul Peress brought the curtain down with his diverse group of musicians from South America and the US and his funky, jazzy, multi-cultural sounds. Peress' expert drumming skills did not go unnoticed and received resounding applause from the crowd.”
---THE ST LUCIA STAR - BET Jazz St Lucia Festival
