"A signpost on the local live music landscape since the early 70's, Stagecoach West is surely the most enduring - and endearing - band in the Inland Northwest." "...breadth of material, country, western, rock and pop, as wide as the open sky..." -Mike Corrigan, Feature Writer
"Stagecoach West displays an affinity for old-time country music that's unusual in a band this versatile"
"The band performs the music of the Mills Brothers and the Rolling Stones with equal aplomb."
"...offerings highlighted by harmonies as beautifully done as in the originals."

"I wish all bands were as professional as Stagecoach West. The reason there are so many rules in my contract is because SO MANY BANDS are not professional. But with your band, you understand what the band needs to provide: Nice clothing; punctuality; organization; and so on. And the respect you guys show me makes my job so easy when SW performs. See you next month. Chris -2019
