As writer Dave Lavender of the Herald-Dispatch in Huntington, WV, has noted, "The Flood doesn''t rest on its laurels as West Virginia''s most eclectic string band.

"Throw in some Dixieland jazz, some Irish fiddle tunes, a great sense of humor, some pure mountain melodies from the likes of such state treasured songwriters as Hazel Dickens and yes by God, the best kazoo playing between here and say Kalamazoo, and you got the 1937 Flood," adds Lavender.
