Bob Mills – Power 104 FM: I really think these guys have what it takes – they have a killer show, a great look, solid musicianship, killer vocals…the whole package! Definitely tell people to Catch The Flu!
Adrian Chamberlain – Entertainment Editor Times Colonist: I was thoroughly impressed with The Flu. Well-written, catchy pop-rock songs that, at times, reminded of of a cross between the Arctic Monkeys and 1960s-era Who. As a live act they’re incredibly dynamic — the energy level could power a small town.
Bruce Atkinson Castanet “Under the Lights” - They are…talented, brash, and infectious! They are the Flu, a home-grown musical force that are about to take Canada by storm.
Robert Porter | Photographer/Photojournalist - Snap Victoria ….It was an amazing concert, one I will never forget. Very nice to see a range old new and old fans of Paul. He Rocked !! The Flu was an excellent choice for an opener, They surprised a lot of people with their high energy.
