"In case you haven’t noticed their ascent,  the  psychedelic flamboyance of Telethon is getting better by the day. It’s                immeasurably difficult to make something this patently weird be so cogent, but         somehow they’ve figured it out. What’s     more, with tons of stage presence and       much-improved wardrobe featuring           amazing animal headdresses, this is a     band that has a big a sense of show. All     you young art-scene bucks starting out can shorten your learning curve considerably by seeing one of their shows. Then you can     thank me later for all the time I saved      you." ~Bao Le-Huu Orlando Weekly 5/2010

"This is what happens when the lounge singer at Zelda's local Village Tavern starts trying to mess with the system. Everything was A-OK while the guy threw some Manilow in his Bacharach, but now that he's heard those Beach Boys and mainlined 80s schlock pop, the denizens of Zelda-land (Mercay Island?) aren't feeling the milk buzz they used to. Time for the harder stuff?" ~Jeremy Krinsley Impose Magazine

Telethon Veginald Cheeseburger... was easily the most enigmatic character to grace the basement stage. With one-liners like, “Wang Tang Coconut and Lil’ Jon couldn’t be here tonight. I wish them well wherever they are.” he continued to surprise with a host of synthesizers, beat boxing, and drumming in addition to his guitar work" ~ONWARD STATE.COM
