”Local hero Mike Pride is no doubt the only musician to ever play with Anthony Braxton and tour with punk legends MDC (Millions of Dead Cops).” -- Bruce Lee Gallenter (Downtown Music Gallery)

“Drummer Mike Pride stokes the furnace with fire, while never stinting on finesse.” -- Time Out NY

“The drumming, courtesy of Mike Pride, was particularly ferocious and at times bordered on a death metal intensity; it was amazing that the rest of the band [MDC] even managed to keep up with him.” -- live4metal.com

“Pride hits both sides of the kit - being the backbone to an ensemble.” -- All About Jazz

He's always challenging himself with new situations and breaking down barriers between different scenes, intermingling avant-rock, avant-jazz, free improv, and miscellaneous wackiness in a countless stream of projects.” -- Michael Anton Parker

“You can almost see drummer Mike Pride having a catharsis.” -- Bryan Barge (Sylusmagazine.com)
