" There aren't many original bands in the UK Alternative music scene who grab my attention at present but Gasfoodlodging stuck out at once. A great band with great original songs written by their founder Dave Griffiths. A band that truly deserves to get heard by a wider audience" - Amanda Summers, VM Promotions.
"It's no easy task projecting a good sound on the live stage as a 3 piece band especially if it's not hard driven music. However, Gasfoodlodging who aren't hard driven do it with ease. Their excellent original songs resonate around the room all night long at their gigs. A pleasure to have worked with them" - Damien Stewart, Sound Engineer.
" One of the best unsigned bands that I've heard in recent times in the area of Alternative rock and Alternative Country" - Richard Jackson, Nantwich Music Festival.
"In today's era many new guitar bands choose to hide behind a wall of sound to hide either weak original songs or their shabby playing of instruments. Gasfoodlodging based in Birmingham, West Midlands, are an exception on both accounts" - Matthew Gray ( Vision Music Promotion, London)
