“Someone cloned Jim James and grew him up in a different era with different influences and different friends, and named him Danny instead of Jim. When Amoramora performs it feels like whatever otherworldy energy that caused rock music to come into being in the first place, has taken control of them and is using them to give itself new form.” – Dustin Huth, BusToShow.org
“Amoramora has groove, soul and rock ‘n’ roll on lock. Together, they create a sound that can only be described as what Veronesi calls ‘some phunky rock ‘n’ roll jazz.’ They bring the rock star attitude and mix it with some intricate keyboard tunes and accents on the horn.” – CU Independent
