Tre Amici Songwriter Series 2008
Jessie Stehlik Business Owner

"A Sleepin' Dogz show is a musical meal that is equal parts sweet, spicy and satisfying. With two people as obviously in tune with each other as Leo and Jeannie are, you know you're watching something special."

Prostar Sound Stage 2008
Rocco Colello Concert Promoter
"There is showmanship and energy to spare when this dynamic duo takes the stage. With Leo anchoring their sound with his strong and inspired guitar work, and with Jeannie's amazingly expressive voice soaring through their songs, the audience is treated to a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Their live show is filled with passion, humor, and just plain fun."

CD Baby 2005 “Outstanding, sexy vocals by frontwoman Jeannie Blatus, who writes from an honest and experienced heart.” “Simply put it's fantastic” ”wonderful original stuff; never gets old; gets better with each play!” ” How this little band has been overlooked by the big show, whether New York, L.A. or Nashville, is beyond me. This album is worth twice the price and the band is even better at a live show. Lets hope there's a second helping.
