"Katrina Chester is a stunning Janis Joplin. She shakes the earth
off its axis with renditions of 'Summertime' and 'Ball & Chain' that
Janis herself would have a hard time topping. In fact, if you shut your
eyes, you would b hard pressed to not think you're sitting in front of the
real thing. Somehow, she is able to summon a demon inside her that draws
out emotions from the depths of her soul, spurring a performance that brings
tears to the eyes of many of the Janis fans who witness it."
"Katrina is nothing short of spectacular. Janis fans of all ages jumped
to their feet with excitement as Katrina. Even the ones who were doubtful

"Vocalist Katrina Chester delivers a smoky intensity that owes more

Courtney Love or the Breeders: her style is refreshingly retro and personal,
blended with bluesy soul and intellectualism. Plus, Chester is one hypnotic
hellcat of a singer onstage."
"Katrina Chester' slightly raspy voice belted out some pretty sultry
and sexy lyrics that sounded like Janis Joplin, Melissa Etheridge, and Beth
Hart all rolled into one."
"Chester has a lot to offer as a vocalist. She's a real "something
old, something new" type of singer. She is an emotionally charged ball
of fire on some songs, yet at other times lets her softer, seductive delivery
portray equally strong emotion Angry, yet alluring, Chester is one helluva
"Chester has plenty of talent in her strong, passionate rock and roll
voice, replete with delicious raspiness and moody alto qualities... delivers
