Sachem Library Concert review by Shana Braff:
"From the first note it was evident that Nina and the gang would play with the same intensity whether in front of 20 or 20,000 people. Nina seems to be a woman hailing from another time, with a voice echoing throughout the ages; hovering between a purr and a growl....an icon in the making. Nina seamlessly stepped from Elvis' shoes to Grace Slick's without ever losing her own unique footing." Click here to read the full article.

The Long Island Pulse Magazine:
"A startling and raw collection of songs that may recall an edgier Victoria Williams during her Dylan & the Band Basement Tapes period. An unusual, yet welcome approach to recording and unadorned, almost primal songs and vocals make this one of the most exciting albums to come out of Long Island in years."
The Deli Magazine (NYC):
"Nina makes music the good old fashion way- with heart, soul and in mono! It is not music written
for the press, critics or even for the studio....
in short it's music without pretension." Click here to read the full article.

"Nina Makes the Music Work" by Emily Portoghese. Click here to read the full article on page 7.
Bill Nolan of WPKN's Antique Blues Show:
"A very unique and unusual sound that is different from what's out there today. If she was recording in the peace love and 60's, she would have probably been a sensation."
Donna DiBerardino of Sayville Library:
"Their music was upbeat, fun, interactive and entertaining for all who attended. A mixed crowd of families, adults and seniors attended and left asking when and where to see them again. Nina Et cetera are suitable for all audience types and sizes and is a sure thing for any venue who seeks an act to draw a crowd."
