Below are press clippings of our EP, "Live Off The Floor"
"Finding modern music that embodies the spirit of Deep Ellum's days as a haven for blues visionaries and outcasts is far more difficult than one might expect. If you're looking for a history lesson fueled by fried, live-wire guitars and amp-busting distortion, look no further than Dallas blues-rockers The Red 100's.” QuickDFW.com
“Live Off The Floor is an excellent example of musicians emulate the rock greats who came before them – Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, and The Stooges – but not to the point of stealing their work. With each lick played on the guitar and every beat banged on the drums,you can hear The Red 100’s pay homage to those who made rock an institution.” Pegasus News
"The Red 100s make it their goal to “pick up the pieces where Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath left off.” The band’s high-energy performance oozing with raw energy takes note from rock and roll greats like Jimi Hendrix, The Stooges and even Oak Cliff’s own Stevie Ray Vaughan.'' Jessica Harp - Pegasus News
"Playing heaving and heavy psychedelic rock, The Red 100's is an anomaly on the local music scene. Decidedly unhipster, Raul Mercado and Kyle Scheumack make a blues-rock racket. There isn't a single iota of indie-rock finesse on the six tracks that make up Live off the Floor, the band's debut EP...But that's not a bad thing. Beginning with "Bellhop Swing" and ending with "Set Me Free," They never deviate from their bruising game plan. The album is riff upon riff. Cuts such as "Kill Switch" and "Ain't No" have all the subtlety of a chain saw. Even the relatively restrained tones of "Coffee at Midnight" still carry weight. After it's all said and done, the listener comes away feeling somewhat soiled and hungover." Dallas Observer
