    Fantastic recording. Very highly recommended. Nicely done, Donnie. Don is also the subject of last week's episode of Mandolins and Beer which we've listened to, also not to be missed.

    “I Want To Be Happy” makes me happy to hear it. It’s elegant and beautifully played by all four master musicians, individually and and as a quartet. Don swings with peerless mandolin tone and touch and this recording is just plain fun to listen to. Thanks for a great start to my Tuesday!

    Great time feel! Absolutely LOVE Don Stiernberg’s tone, so smooth and such great pop, perfect for the music. A Nugget, I recall? Could not sound any better.

    The MP3's are great, but the CD is exquisite. Highly recommended. Yay, Donnie!

    CD's on the way! Always great to have more DSQ on tap. Like Andy said, these guys are all masters in their own right, and as a band they are magical. I've been fortunate enough to see them in person on occasion, and they always have fun and put on a great show. Don's recordings are always well done and he really brings it, whether it's with a trio or an expanded lineup.
