"Danny is great. He is a genius composer/musician. He has a unique gift for translating Danny & Swampy's musical ideas delivered verbally into actual musical arrangements. Which makes P & F really come to life. As a person, he's definitely got roots in cool, but he's as humble as really talented people can possibly come. Danny is a gem."
"Danny Jacob is a real find, we could not do the show without him. Not only does he fill the show with wonderful underscore that always adds to the comedy or drama of the moment, but he fully produces the hundreds of songs that we write on guitar and sing badly into his answering machine. Somehow, he makes them actually sound good. We're not sure how he does that, but he does."

"Many times I have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Danny. He elevated my work with his incredible talent. He is truly one of the most versatile musicians I have toured with. As a producer, he has the amazing knack of knowing what is needed for that particular moment, combined with the ability to communicate to his artist how best to deliver it."
