The OC Press has always loved the Friendly Indians:

"How can you go wrong with Orange County's Friendly Indians, a band that's as funny as it is musical? Both on the band's debut, Greetings...From Lake Dolores and the follow-up, Pure Genius, they play an infectious brand of wry rock."- Robert Kinsler, OC Register

"The band has a penchant for novelty songs along with the more serious stuff, and on "Pure Genius" it pulls off some good ones, which is no small feat". - Mike Boehm, LA Times

"With a sound that combines a bit of The Beatles, a touch of The Police, and plenty of Barenaked Ladies, the group is fast becoming one of the sharpest traditional pop acts in O.C."
- Ben Wener, OC Register

"They enjoy playing and connect well with the crowd. The Friendly Indians are definitely worth checking out." - Marie Loggia, Comcast Online

"The Friendly Indians emerged as the day's strongest local entry, offering an engaging set of melodic pop-rock from their likable "Greetings...From Lake Dolores" CD. The emotionally charged "You Sometimes", hard-driving "Stateline" and a thought-provoking blast at stereotypes, "If I Was Gay", were among the Orange County quartet's highlights." - John Roos, LA Times
