“Babal understands the importance of loud, fast pops on the drums. Occasionally, he would double his tempo, and then slide effortlessly back to a slower driving beat...Babal’s drumming probably moved the crowd more than anything else did.”
Charlie Mullin, Music Connection

“Vogel and Babal are a fuel-injected rhythm section that supercharges every song.”
Bernard Baur, Music Connection 

"It's always amazing to me when a musician sub whom you've never played with before walks on stage and just nails it all night long. Well, that just happened last night with Ken Babal. Superb drummer."  Robert Heft Blues Band
