“In all of contemporary music, the Ladybugs are easily one of my favorite things. The emerging genre generally known as the new hot jazz, has no shortage of artists who are talented, imaginative, attractive, and ridiculously young. But even by that standard, the Ladybugs stand out as a vocal duo that is both charming and musically substantial in equal portions.” - Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
Vanity Fair featured The Ladybugs’ leader, Martina DaSilva, in The Jazz Youth-Quake: Others on the Upswing.
“The Ladybugs’ refreshing sound and smart interpretations of early jazz tunes come as something of a revelation: light popular music from the early 1900s still has the power to enchant … The talent in this band is enormous and much fiercer than its name implies. With all due respect, no ladybug ever sounded this good.” - The New York City Jazz Record
The Ladybugs was featured in a one- hour special on NPR’s Jazz Night in America, hosted by famed jazz bassist, Christian McBride.
