Saw PWFB for the first time at O’Slattery’s on Saturday night. They are fantastic. Enjoyed listening to music from « our era « plus the original tunes they played. Steve and Kim’s voices compliment each other and they can cover a broad range of genre’s seamlessly. Guitar and bass phenomenal. Enjoyed Joe on the harmonica as well. Can’t wait to see them again. But, in the meantime we can hear them whenever we want on their Closer than we know CD...which by the way is awesome! Highly recommend it !!!!! They have 2 new fans :-) Thanks again for a great evening of music !!!!! It just went by way too fast !!!!!!!!! Sheri and John Pittz

Great CD! Love all the songs but Hard Charger is by far my favorite!
Liz(Tuesday, July 03 18 10:56 am EDT)
You guys were on fire! Thank heavens for my Crocs!!! :-) There was so much energy under that tent it is a wonder it didn't take off. Congratulations!!!!
Rhonda(Tuesday, July 03 18 10:46 am EDT)
What great songs and sound you all had today. Glad we were able to share this with all of you.
Rick Palmer(Tuesday, July 03 18 10:44 am EDT)
I have had the CD in my truck since the release. I have had it on each day going to work and around town. I enjoy listening as you get to hear the words more clearly than sometimes at live performances. Although they always sound great as well, sometimes at performances the instruments are heard over the vocals depending on crowd ,acoustics, background noise etc. As the CD was mastered, the vocals are very clear on each song and I get to better hear each word, even though I already knew many of them from performances. A great cd.
Barb(Tuesday, July 03 18 10:42 am EDT)
"WOW, this CD is so good. And your voice!!... fabulous! I couldn't stop smiling the whole while I was listening to it. Songs are great, music is amazing. I love the hard beats of some of the songs. And can I say again.....your voice....!! I so enjoy powerful, (I don't want to say deep, because that's not it) I can't put words to what I like but your voice is it. You also can sing the sweet tunes, but it's the Melissa Etheridge/ Stevie Nicks quality I like the most. ENJOYING the CD...You must be so proud of this! You certainly should be. Congratulations to all of you.. "
Selkirk Fire Dept(Thursday, August 10 17 03:36 pm EDT)
On behalf of the Selkirk Fire Department we THANK everyone for coming out and making our annual Summertime events a success. The turnout for the 61st Annual Glenmont Fireman’s Fair, and the 42nd Annual Flea Market & Craft Fair, were amazing.
We also had a great response to our first ever Block Party featuring the Playin’ With Fire Band. The response was so positive, to the Block Party, that we may make it an annual event, like the other events. Thanks to Stevie Wright, Kim Wickham, and the rest of the band for putting on an electric entertaining show, that had people dancing, and singing, right along
Bill Collins(Saturday, July 08 17 09:02 am EDT)
Loved being in "front row" seats for your O'Slatterys gig last night. Got to see Danny's hands gliding up and down the neck so skillfully and effortlessly. My wife, Barb, heard a lot of Rita Coolidge in Kim's voice. Steve's vocals were spot on in "Best of My Love". Only regret is that we had to leave too soon.
Paula & Marty(Tuesday, April 25 17 03:32 am EDT)
Playing With Fire ? was rocking at the Red Knights club house Saturaday night. I have watched & listened to them many times but never seen them so hooked up as they were at the Red Knights Spring bash.
ROCKED the Spring Fling! Sign a contract to that kid before he becomes famous!
Tony(Sunday, April 23 17 10:37 pm EDT)

Playin' With Fire Band has evolved over the years and only continues to become greater and stronger! Their set list contains a great choice of songs you know and love and their original creations that you will want to know and will instantly love! The members are all very talented and mix it up well! I will see them every chance I get!
Robin Castiglione-Santiago(Sunday, January 01 17 07:47 pm EST)
Saw you for the first time at Bethlehem First Night 2017. Simply AWESOME! I even went live on Facebook so my friends could hear the incredibly sound and kickass drum solo! My entire family was rockin out! I would want to hire you guys for any party! Thanks.
Keith(Saturday, September 10 16 03:52 pm EDT)

Jim(Tuesday, August 09 16 02:04 pm EDT)
Wish I could have made it to the Barge. I'll bet it was fantastic, you always are. Thanks for entertaining us on a regular basis. Haven't found anyone ton compare!
Dan(Tuesday, August 09 16 07:28 am EDT)
The' Playin With Fire band' in Albany, NY is a great Classic Rock group that I joined last month. Led by vocalists Kim Cirillo Rocker Wickham and Stevie Wright, (guitar) the band's rhythm section
with Al Kash (drums) and Jeffrey Britton is a tight machine.
The PWF band performs at venues that cater to music lovers...If you haven't seen this band lately- Please do!!
Mike(Tuesday, August 09 16 07:20 am EDT)
saw you on the Barge, great show! very talented group
Ron(Saturday, November 21 15 06:34 pm EST)

Kat(Sunday, July 26 15 07:01 am EDT)
Fabulous band I fell in love with first time I heard them it was June 2014 they volunteered to play at a fundraiser I did for my best friend. Recently June 2015 they played at my wedding reception.
My guest loved Tham as much as I do. Playin with fire is my favorite band in the capital region.
Bonnie Kleinke(Saturday, July 25 15 10:14 pm EDT)
I haven't been lately but will soon now the house is almost done, but every time I have heard you all its been fantastic!! Love it!!!

Kim, and the rest of the band, wonderful time, great music and good songs...thanks for cd, luv it. Checking out web-site for you next gig. cu
Jim Gross(Monday, April 28 14 04:27 pm EDT)
This band "Playin' With Fire" leveled the Helderbergs to rubble. All the critters came out of the woods and sang back up harmonies. The WWI Tank re-appeared as a low rider. The Tories came out of the
cave to boogie. The Knights, Lords and Ladies came down from the castle to boogie.
Donna(Friday, March 21 14 01:17 pm EDT)
Your song Wishes is fantastic. I'd like to buy the CD. Is it available? Where can I find it?
jim(Monday, February 10 14 04:49 pm EST)
I really have to say, Franklin's Tower treats us right every time we go there. They find us a table downstairs when there are none, the service is great, friendly and the food is excellent. We'll be
And Acoustic Fire was GREAT too
Milt Schmidt(Monday, January 06 14 12:02 pm EST)
Saw Acoustic fire for the first time at Side door Cafe a couple of nights age. Really enjoyed it. I'll be back for more.
Nancy Gildea(Saturday, September 07 13 06:02 pm EDT)
Heard acoustic fire @ Side Door Cafe last night. Highly enjoyed it. I hope to attend more soon.

AF rocked the 4 corners tonight. Great job everyone.
Flash(Saturday, May 18 13 05:54 pm EDT)
I just found myself walking around the house singing Wishes outloud! Usually I only do that riding my Harley! Thanks for creating such a great song!
Rev. Paul Panos(Saturday, March 23 13 01:40 pm EDT)
I LOVE y'all!!! Great people & top notch performers, I can't wait to see y'all again!

Awesome Band and a lot of fun ;0)
Lori(Tuesday, February 05 13 04:42 pm EST)
McKownville FD hired Playin' With Fire Band for our installation dinner and it was GREAT!!! People all ages and personalities got up to dance together. They play something for everyone and really
people keep telling me how much they enjoyed them. (as if I have something to do with how talented they are) So, if you hve an occasion, try to get Lefty's band to play. I mean if you want to have
great music and a great time, that is.
MJR(Sunday, March 04 12 01:26 pm EST)
Best party band ever...Playin with Fire...
Lori Biker(Sunday, February 19 12 09:36 pm EST)
Great show at Perfect Blend Friday night. Nice additions to the song list! I loved seeing the harmonica come out! Another perfect blend of music and people!
jb(Saturday, February 18 12 05:59 pm EST)
Acoustic Fire was so much fun last night! I love the new songs and Kim was awesome on the old favorites. Plus they played a Beatles song! Doesn't get any better than that!! Rock on !!!
FLASH!(Sunday, February 12 12 03:58 pm EST)
I just wanted to thank you all for the many hours of entertainment you have given me. I try to take in as much fun in a day as I can get and that is easy when I am at your gigs. It is great to see
how you all enjoy being on stage with each other. I am psyched to see that 2012 already has gigs planned through November! I know there will be many more added too! I look forward to a lot more great
times listening to you! Thanks again!
MW(Saturday, December 24 11 08:29 am EST)
Acoustic Fire at Perfect Blend Cafe last night. Great mix of popular tunes originals and Holiday songs. Where do you play next?
Thanks so much for doing the Schoharie County Flood Relief Benefit Concert. You guys sounded great as usual; really rocked the Helderbergs! If I wasn't so busy helping, my feet would have been tired
from dancing more. I suspect you will get some new followers out of it; I heard a lot of comments about how good you guys are. There's over $3000 more going to help people who have lost almost
everything, and Playin' with Fire and your followers played a big role in pulling it in. Great working with you guys. Thanks again.
Gail Sparlin(Wednesday, November 23 11 02:53 pm EST)
Thanks for promoting this so well, Stephen, you guys rocked the house. Was a real pleasure to be part of the event.
jgr(Tuesday, November 22 11 11:28 am EST)
We had a great time at the Schoharie Flood Relief Benefit. You guys were awesome, and what a great cause to donate your talents to. Thank you
Jill(Monday, November 07 11 06:04 pm EST)
I just wanted to thank you all for being part of Shogun's entertainment on the deck this season. We ended on September 8 with Kim Riker and her guitarists from Playin' with Fire rockin' out Main
Square. You all promoted nice crowds on Thursday nights and Frank could not have been happier! I hope to see you all back again next summer; we really appreciate your talents!
John Clarkson(Monday, November 07 11 05:53 pm EST)
And a very good set it was ... Many thanks to Playing with Fire for the VOTE Bethlehem performance!
LB(Monday, November 07 11 05:50 pm EST)
You guys sounded great today! It was a beautiful day to hear music outside! Thanks!
Christine(Wednesday, September 28 11 08:35 am EDT)
We had a blast on Sat. night. The band sounds great.
Flash(Sunday, September 25 11 10:47 am EDT)
I loved "Wishes" tonight. It must be so gratifying to hear a song you wrote be played like that and to have people dancing to it too! How freakin cool! You are soooo talented!!!
Lori(Saturday, September 24 11 09:54 am EDT)
Acoustic PWFB Rockin' Shogun! What a great time! Looking forward to more gigs from them!!!

mick(Sunday, August 22 10 10:34 am EDT)
Saw Playing With Fire (PWF) last nite aug 21 at the waters edge / new baltimore ny . That sound mix was absolutely great . I could hear every word and note . danced again to beatles , katrina and the
waves and others , . They picked up a lead guitarist and together they performed some magic - heard some classics from CREAM and Steve sounded just like eric clapton singing . Kim sang great ,
drummmer and bass kept up the rhythm section . Jim was awesome on those keys . The band looked like they were having fun and so did everyone there including all us volunteer firefighting folks
Fuzzy Carr(Sunday, August 22 10 09:53 am EDT)
That was my first time seeing all of you. I think it was great. I grew up with music and I love what you play. Keep up the great work. See you out somewhere again soon.
Donna(Saturday, July 24 10 01:42 pm EDT)
You guys rock the house every time we see you. Can't wait to party with you again. CD is fantastic too!
Lori Biker(Wednesday, July 14 10 04:50 pm EDT)
Playin' With Fire is simply a great band! Each time I see you I notice something else I like about you! Besides being talented, you are fun! It is nice to see a band that enjoys being there. Lefty
Wright, as I like to call him, and Kim are a great pair up front working off each other! A left handed, biker, guitar player? How cool! Kim's voice is full and strong, combined with her spunky
personality and a great choice of tunes gives us a great show! I love going out to hear a band that plays music I know all the words to! You guys ROCK!
John(Sunday, March 21 10 03:22 pm EDT)
I'm a big Gary Moore fan. "Still Got the Blues" sounded great. The CD should cause you to have to turn away business.
Bill & Kathy Remling(Friday, March 19 10 01:14 pm EDT)
Kim.........we just love looking for each new song you post. You look and sound awesome..........the only thing missing is more pictures of you.......proud of you........Love K&B
Sue B(Wednesday, March 17 10 10:06 am EDT)
AWESOME !!!!!! I just heard the CD-I was very impressed. I am actually thinking about booking the band for my next private party. GREAT SOUNDS :)
Marion(Tuesday, March 16 10 05:16 pm EDT)
WOW, this ain't your average garage band I grew up next door to! Awesome sound!!! Keep up the great work!
Hey...add me to your mailing list!!...Thanks.....CT.
Jim Hamilton(Tuesday, December 01 09 11:34 pm EST)
Hey, Stevie, glad we could catch you again at Yanni's. You guys just keep getting better and better. Nice job on vocals; Kim can really belt it out when she wants too. And what a great finsh to the
first set! Wayne's lead was awesome. I don't know who to compare him to. Wish we could have stayed later. Hope to see you at Zwicks Sat night.
Judy(Monday, November 30 09 11:01 am EST)
Great sound, great energy, great band. Looking forward to seeing you guys at Zwicklebauers December 5th. The last gig at Yannis was rockin' Keep up the good work!!!

You all were very impressive last night at Yannis. I love live music and its always better when its clear the band is having a good time! -Hags
Congrats! You have one of the best drummers in the capital district! Earl-the-Pearl-Johnson!
Rhonda(Thursday, November 05 09 11:31 pm EST)
I saw them at Zwicklebauers October 24th. Great show, Great sound and lots of energy!!! Cant wait to see them again. Looking forward to seeing them at Yannis in Ravena. If you haven't seen them come
on out and see what you've been missing!!
Michael Walsh(Tuesday, November 03 09 07:03 pm EST)
Great gig last week! The website looks great too!!! See you soon!
Don(Saturday, October 31 09 05:51 pm EDT)
Really glad to see Zwick's open and a full house rocking with Playin' with Fire. It was a great night of good food, company and great music. Keep it up.
