Shows and Exposure: From Kleiber Hall in Davis, to the Boardwalk in Orangevale, from Raley Field in Sacramento, to the Powerhouse Pub in Folsom, Mixed Signals has been making the rounds and spreading their name, most recently playing live on Channel 31's "Good Evening Sacramento" TV broadcast and recorded on KXTV News 10 (ABC).

Reviews: Here's what CABANDS.
COM has to say about Mixed Signals: "Jake Sockolov's vocal qualities ranged from Rush's Geddy Lee to Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder with a splash of Black Sabbath and Queensryche for spice. Guitarist Wes Holliday had a unique blend of blues and rock in his technique, along with keyboardist Mike Jordan adding crispness to the band's over all sound. Drummer Andrew Smyth rounds out this 4-piece team of musicianship. Mixed Signals can best be described as a good old fashioned progressive rock band whose singer can "channel" several noted vocalist and yet strive for a sound of his own." The final verdict is that "These boys have some serious talent and are worth taking in live."
