On Nicky Barbato Project/Every Day is a Bad Hair Day

  

- "Nicky's vision cuts through surf rock, jazz, '70s prog rock, funk and rockabilly--and that's just in the first song and a half...This album takes a couple of steps further into pure goodness, however, by Barbato's incredibly dry song intros, delivered with that same ironic flatness that makes me think again of Jonathan Richman...Nicky Barbato Project has one major strength, besides Barbato's ability to really shred on guitar...the mix between Barbato's original, evocative and often hilarious arrangements are juxtaposed against some intriguing cover choices." - The Vinyl Anachronist

- "Nicky Barbato’s record, Every Day is a Bad Hair Day, is a breathtaking, adventurous and hilarious peep into the mind of a guitar music madman! Elements of all my favorite music is in there which adds up to a very New York album in style and substance. There is a decidedly bipolar (or even quad polar) element to a lot of the arrangements which flip back and forth between carnival and country feelings and middle eastern or Bollywood tinges.... but together it’s still NYC jazz guitar at its finest! One thing’s for sure Nicky is an accomplished guitarist and composer and anyone who hears this will be waiting for the next one." - Teddy Kumpel  

  

- "Jazzbos with a pomo edge that never met a mash up opportunity they couldn't pass up, [the Nicky Barbato Project has] a special gift for taking things to their logical extreme and then inserting a whiplash left turn...A must for kids that understand power trio and want to expand their horizons." - Midwest Record

- "Every Day is a Bad Hair Day is produced by saxophone legend/hero/extraordinaire Jon Irabagon in a very creative and wild-fun production-way. "50 Dollar Chevy"...grabs and hits in astonishing ways...This is just great surprising music! - The Groningen Report
