“Billy The Kid & The Regulators Their new release She's Got a Hold On Me is an awesome collection of blues from a band that deserves the big name they have. The Lincoln County Regulators and Billy "The Kid" Bonney are a huge part of American history, and Billy "The Kid Evanochko" might be the biggest thing to come out of Pittsburgh since Mean Joe Green.”
— Raul Watson, Blues E-News Volume 3 Issue 2

"The judges reported some very strong discs," according to the Memphis-based International Blues Challenge (IBC), which hosts a yearly battle-of-the-bands to crown the top blues acts not linked to a major label. Billy the Kid and The Regulators, fronted by singer-guitarist Bill Evanochko of Hopewell Township, competed in the Memphis challenge in 2008, narrowly missing the Top 10.
