"Primate Fiasco is famous for their throw down acoustic performances in which anywhere is indeed their stage. In a genre all their own, these gentlemen are truly masterful at their ability to push their chosen instrument far beyond its traditional sound." - George DiFabio, Upstate Live
"..The Fiasco's strategy (covering Zeppelin) was both bold and cunning. Rather than trying to emulate Jimmy Page and Robert Plant's masterpiece with a reverent forgery, they toppled it to the ground and picked up the pieces they liked best." -Mark Rossler, Valley Advocate
"Dave is one of the community's recent arrivals and he's already become a big cultural catalyst... He doesn't let rules thwart his missions. The dude abides, but does Jedi mind tricks within the rules. He makes things happen. He puts them in motion and people fall into his slipstream... .[Russo] is an ideal candidate for an NAC grant & supporting this project and Dave in general is like giving a power pellet to Pac Man or something. He's going to do some serious chomping." -Jim Niell, Iron Horse Entertainment
"If anyone can walk this particular tightrope successfully, it is the Valley's finest sonic antidote to feeling low." -James Heflin of Valley Advocate
"Primate Fiasco. It's so great to watch this fabulously fun Dixieland pop extravaganza play on the street in Northampton (with hula-hooper in tow) that you can't find parking anymore. Why do they have to be so entertaining?" -Valley Advocate
Primate pees on fan's sofa. Fan forgives..
The Primate Fiasco needs help in every town they play in. You can help get the word out, give them a place to crash, point them towards the best breakfast joint, etc. If you are somewhere between fan and friend, that's called a 'fran'.
Fill out the form and start getting on the guest list. You can also win festival tickets. Most importantly, you'll know that your city is on the Primate map because of you. Go you.
