"Straddling San Antonio and Austin with an updated take on Doug Sahm's Tex-Mex hybrid . . . current run and a new album, 'Tipsy Topsy Turvy,' points toward more where that came from."

"As close as you get to The Who sing Bob Dylan"

"The Krayolas have a sound!"

"Genuine, Mexified San Antonio rock 'n' roll stars . . . that's the message of ('Tipsy Topsy Turvy'). 

The Krayolas have arrived...yet again. With the release of the bands newest output, 'Tipsy Topsy Turvy,'  the Krayolas are mastering the art of conquering past success by turning it on its head, getting back to basics and producing the kind of straight ahead Rock and Roll that made their name synonymous with San Antonio." 

"With ('Tipsy Topsy Turvy') the Krayolas went back to basics with a vengeance and delivered their best, straight-ahead rock ’n’ roll album in years. Byrds guitars ('Gonna Walk Downtown'), blues shuffles and Beach Boys harmonies (a cover of Ram-era Paul McCartney’s 'Smiles Away'), plain ole’ R&R (a cover of Chuck Berry’s 'Run Rudolph Run'), and Héctor Saldaña’s Elvis Costello growl are the stars of the show."

    Known as the Tex-Mex Beatles, the Chicano garage rockers have garnered flattering comparisons to the Fab Four, Bob Dylan, the Who, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Warren Zevon. The Krayolas have been profiled in Texas Monthly, The Washington Post, New York Times, The New Yorker, Paste, Pollstar, Rolling Stone, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” “Alt-Latino” and MTV, and are regulars on SIRIUS XM “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” Dave Marsh’s “Kick Out the Jams,” KUTX and Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Roots and Branches of Americana.”

    In 2014, the Krayolas were inducted into the Texas Music Office’s South Texas Music Walk of Fame.
