"The comparisons are inevitable. Both for their age, their make up, but most importantly, their talent, the girls of Hoity-Toity are quintessentially a modern retelling of The Runaways. Four girls set out to take over the world with their mix of pop punk, catching lyrics, and an all encompassing stage show that draws you in and leaves you wondering, what's next for these girls? I'll be he first to admit a few simple facts: I don't like punk bands, I don't really care for teenage musicians, and all age shows aren't my cup of tea. All those things being said Hoity-Toity blew me away. They were so young and talented and energetic, but most importantly their musicianship was tight, they played well together, and they played the crowd even better."

"From Yucaipa, California, comes a pop rock group with a touch of punk, Hoity~Toity. The band — made up of Shelby on lead vocals, Sarah on lead guitar, Kelsey on drums, and Spike on bass — has that “modern-day riot girl” feel with a perpetual forward-moving and catchy musicality. This is the band you call up when you need a boost of energy and motivation to get it done."
