\"Is this a dance? Or a costume party? Or have I wandered onto the set of some 1930\'s musical? Doc\'s band knows and plays just about everything, but focuses on the works of such giants as Cab Calloway, George Gershwin and Irving Berlin.\"
— Larry Fox, The Washington Post

\"Scantlin\'s all arms and elbows, a nutty herky-jerky Looney Tunes cartoon of a conductor...showbiz schtick aside, Scantlin stands out from the big-band bunch.\"
—Joe Brown, The Washington Post

\"The first person to appear for a Washington D.C. concert was a mohawked punker later judged less weird than Scantlin.\"
— Russ DeVault, The Atlanta Journal
