"If you're trying to track down a band on the web, try the musician's index at the Louisiana Music Archive and Artists Directory. If the band you’re looking for is on the web, chances are you'll find a link to it here, along with music news and announcements." -- Charlyn Keating; WWL Eyewitness Morning News

"Once again, Greg Hardison's site at Satchmo.com takes top spot as the best place to track down information on local bands and musicians on the Internet" -- Alex Oliver, Offbeat Magazine - Second Annual Best of the Web

"Crescent City music and its artists shine brightly here at this spectacularly spicy spot" -- Infoseek Select

"... particularly impressive, and a resource anyone looking for information on a Louisiana band or musician should check first, even before the larger search engines and Internet-wide indices" -- Offbeat Magazine -- Best of the Internet, 1996 (January, 1997)

Satchmo.com is an outstanding fan portal for New Orleans music ... the site is slightly inelegant but packed with information -- New Orleans Beat Street Magazine (February, 2003)

Satchmo.com named "Best Music Web Site" at OffBeat Magazine's "Best of the Beat" 2003 Music Business Awards.

Remember Pops!
