Reviews of his music and performance:
“He tackled the stomp board, mouth harp and guitar with grace and fluidity. He blew the crowd away…”
“The crowd remarked about his outstanding originality…”
“...downright black snake hoochie coochie blues…”
“This seriously entertaining set from the southern backroads defies the 'roots' label with the broad range of styles it encompasses, but it’s sure to satisfy listeners partial to that brand of music and then some …”

“Witness a harmonica rack strapped, fedora-outfitted dude playing a National Resophonic axe and chances are he’s a pedantic purist playing only the obscurest Delta material. Yet, given Rick Tobey’s unusual take, all preconceived notions derail right there. His repeated North Carolina migrations have left this New Jersey refugee-Louisiana transplant with an unmistakable Piedmont stamp that’s melded with a Mississippi Delta identity. That’s enough to turn things upside down which he adroitly does…”

“Tobey’s not anybody’s Blind Mississippi wannabe, which explains the African percussion dancing around his nimble fretwork, steel shaving slide and banshee-shaving harmonica wailing. Sometimes it feels as if it’s eerie blues for werewolves… while others are laid back enough guaranteed not to harsh your mellow. … he straps on a ’57 Gibson Les Paul Jr. and rocks out … a John Lee Hooker-meets Duane Allman type of encounter … Good stuff !”
