“It is an audacious, irresistible idea to have that many pianos onstage at one time… I had never before contemplated New York culture’s decided lack of supergroups. Grand Band is verily — and I don’t say this lightly — the Traveling Wilburys of the city’s new-music piano scene.” — Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times
“Piano sextet supergroup” — Ariel Artists
