The music of Sidewalk Driver is high energy, highly-infectious, hook-driven, Rock with a capital 'R.' The sound is modern but the heart of the record seems to be more in line with 1970s rock culture... the Bowies and the Belushis of the world. Lead singer Tad McKitterick's voice has power and clarity, is expressive without falling off the pitch and is forceful but without losing subtle moments. The songs always come with some odd bent but not one that repels... but rather welcomes you to join in the celebration like a carnival barker hyping a freak show.
"One of the best Live Acts in New England..."
- Ryan Spaulding, Ryan's Smashing Life
"What can be said about Sidewalk Driver that hasn’t been already? They’re pop royalty, but they don’t preach or issue decrees – they lead by example. Tight, chugging guitars, perfectly-placed harmonies, and an impeccable rhythm section set the stage for Tad’s skipping over, weaving through, and soaring high above."
- Band Over Boston
"INSANELY AWESOME! Sidewalk Driver are a power pop band with a decidedly 70s glitter pop twist who committed to enhancing your life's enjoyment, like a warm breeze blowing over the listener..."
- Bruce Brodeen, Not Lame
"Sidewalk Driver are always an absolute pleasure to witness. They rock hard by pulling a lot of '70s arena rock in, packaging it with some glam, wrapping the whole thing in awesome and shooting it back out at the audience with glitter cannons and smoke machines. They are one of the best live bands in Boston..."
- Michael Epstein, Boston Band Crush
"The sound: Glitter-fueled theatrical rock. Think Bowie painting the Kinks’ sound with sparkles."
- Kerry Purcell, Boston Herald
"Seeing one of our live shows is like catching Lady Gaga giving David Bowie a hand-job on the surface of the sun."
