Frank Critelli & Goodnight Blue Moon

"Critelli's lyrics are poignant and deeply insightful without running around on the Great Maudlin Reef. His guitar work is skillful and melodic and his vocals flow like the heavily creamed java that is served in the coffeehouses that he has played up and down the east coast for the past twenty-five years." – Craig Gilbert, New Haven Advocate
