“The Bengsons find the unexpected harmony in angst and indecision. They offer luminous hope that a new generation of talent in American theater is taking up Stephen Sondheim’s mantle of exquisite ambivalence.” Ben Brantley, The New York Times CRITIC’S PICK

“Sundown, Yellow Moon is a quietly perceptive portrait of a family in simmering crisis in a beautifully acted production, featuring piquant, yearning music that is an ideal match for a play that knows the redemptive joy of singing your sorrows and finding the rhymes in a world without reason.” Ben Brantley, The New York Times CRITIC’S PICK

Abigail Bengson possesses “not only a tremendous musical talent, but also a raw honesty and sincere righteousness.” The New York Times

“Spine-tingling… Terrific indie-folk choral songs.” The Guardian

“This band has to rise to every music journalists list as a must see band… as fast and furious as a punk show but as creative and clever as an Off-Broadway play.” Huffington Post

“Impossible to resist… Hundred Days succeeds brilliantly.” KQED SF

“Gripping, chilling, exhilarating, wild and heart rending…a must see” The San Francisco Chronicle

“Quirky and radiantly emotive.” Time Out NY

“[Abigail's] singing style was dramatic, emotive, and captivating, and it was clear she had ultimate control over her instrument. It was amazing to watch her carefully and strategically restrain her voice before just unleashing full vocal ferocity during the set’s penultimate song.” The Deli (NYC)

The Bengsons’ songs “have the foot-stomping, feel-good-folk vibe that has made groups like Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros so beloved…” TheaterDogs (SF)

“Beautiful and artful.” NYTheater.com

“There is just no easy way to describe the experience… It’s odd and raw, by turns accessible, touching and frothy. It’s a little bit of everything and it’s also unlike anything you’ve seen and heard before.” City Beat (Cincinnati)

“The Bengons’ lighthearted melodies provide a rare type of energy that enchanted the audience and reminded those present in the room that true love still exists in the world.” KDHX St Louis

“Each song was performed with such enthusiasm that it felt impossible to tear your eyes away for a second… Seeing the Bengsons perform live was truly an invigorating experience overflowing with honest chemistry. A must see for all.” Burlington Music (VT)

“Friendly, fresh-faced and downright enchanting… audiences are bound to sit up and take notice.” Addison Independent (VT)
