Equipped with dual loud guitars, nuanced keys subbed…the Hustlers’ sound felt more visceral than ever before and played rock n’ roll like it should be played – as if it is the last thing you’ll ever do.

This is awesome! Sly can rock it. I love how this track sounds fresh as 2022, and yet has that retro 70s rock feel. When the breakdown comes about 2 minutes in, you are in breathless anticipation of the rock guitar solo to come, and Sly delivers. And the song keeps rockin’, and you wish it wasn’t just a great 3 and 1/2 minute single. – on Sly Fox and the Hustlers’ single, “Find Someone”.

From the intro I was hooked, and if your starving for great music look no futher than Sly Fox and The Hustlers new single titled Find Someone. It’s making noise on radio and I’m sure this energetic song will have you in the groove. You hear the passion ! – on Sly Fox and the Hustlers’ single, “Find Someone”

Tyrone Richardson

“Sly Fox and The Hustlers warmed up the receptive crowd before Kenny arrived. They are local to Albany and have their own album out. We heard some originals and they also did some covers, like most blues bands. I thought they were exceptional. The crowd did as well and gave them a good send off before the lights came back on for a short break.”
~Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck

“Sly Fox and the Hustlers are easily one of the best bands I’ve seen in a long time!”
~ John Popper of Blues Traveler

“Collectively they’re a three-piece blues-rock outfit, individually, they’re highly accomplished at their craft, sharing a passion for live performance. This is the domain of blues-rock, its strength lies in presence along with the music, the more difficult part is translating that to recording.”
~Greg Jackson On Jan 21, 2016

“Like with B.B. King, you can hear three notes and know who it is. It’s the same with Robin Trower! Nobody else sounds like him. He’s a living legend!” and “I could have scoured the earth and I never would have found a better band to open this show than Sly Fox and the Hustlers.”
~Ted Etoll of Step Up

“One of the best high-energy bands in the area run by a guy who studies the blues masters, Sly Fox and the Hustlers are one of the area’s favorite live acts.”
 ~Don Wilcock – The Record

Uncle Sam Jam a Musical Family Reunion

“These local favorites feature some of the areas best players. Funky, blues soaked and powerful, this outfit is sure to get the party rockin. A throwback to another era, the Capital Region is blessed to have such great talent.”

“…Sly Fox and The Hustlers followed with a tight set of blues rock. Stripped down to a trio, these guys are the blues answer to the Ramones. They played their signature song “SUNY Girl,” their current crowd pleaser “American Gypsy” and fleshed out their set with Chicago blues standards Howlin’ Wolf’s “Back Door Man” and Freddie King’s “Down, Down, Down,” showcasing Sly’s mastery of classic electric blues”.
