“In full hosanna, The Cocktail Slippers sounds a lot like the Go-Go’s but with gats instead of L.A. cheer, and a mule kick in their high heels. It’s all retro action but written and detonated with the study and delight of modern rock & roll women in constant touch with their inner filly” – David Fricke, Rolling Stone Magazine
“The Cocktail Slippers was the first band we signed when I started up the record label Wicked Cool Records.” “Working with The Cocktail Slippers as a band during recording is very giving. They strive to achieve greatness on the same level that I do – which surely was achieved on the album ‘Shout It Out Loud,’ and it turned out great” – Stevie Van Zandt aka Little Steven

All of Shout It Loud is a delight, and I really do not want to wait another seven years for new music.”- Jersey Beat
