â€œHot Rock Just Fun For This Foursomeâ€
Gerry Krockak, Leader Post, Regina, Sask.
â€œGuitars and sex will always have their place in rock and roll. Sonic Orchid is working hard to ensure that
its repertoire will be at least as hot as the groupâ€™s steamy frontwoman. Tunes such as â€˜Shoot and Runâ€™ and â€˜I Just Wanna Knowâ€™ are fueled by the siren-like vocals of Gasparic.â€
â€œRock Tall And Carry A Big Shtickâ€
Prairie Dog, Regina, Sask.
â€œHard rocking Queen City quintet rattles the rafters at the Exchange. Sonic Orchidâ€™s own material is stylistically reminiscent of The Cult and Led Zeppelin.â€
â€œBand Offers Sweaty, Sexy Rockâ€
The Star Phoenix, Saskatoon, Sask.
â€œSonic Orchid really knows how to whip up an audience. With a delicious blend of kick-ass rock and raw, steamy sex appeal, Sonic Orchid is intense and is guaranteed to keep you primed. Frontwoman Chris Gasparic is no wall flower, playing guitar and commanding respect with her stage persona.â€
