Reviews for Tim J Hickey

“Tim Hickey as Andy Lee has a solo dance in, ‘We’re in the Money,’ a tour de force, backed up by a dizzying display of dance pyrotechnics.”    Gary M. Harke –Utica NY Observer Dispatch 

“…Tim Hickey executes some intricate routines with a rapidness that would please Gene Kelley an Donald O’Connor.”    Anne B. Bennett Bellport News NY 

“Hickey was a natural. His ease of movement set the stage for tap dancing numbers, which held pure excitement.”  Beth Brethtensky Dominion Post WV 

“Tim Hickey, is the strongest of the tappers, playing the role of the dance captain…”

    J.P. Furst News Tribune Duluth, MN

“...the infectious "David Danced (Before the Lord With All His Might)," on which the SRJO features tap dancer Tim Hickey, is "Come Sunday" at buck-and-wing tempo.”     

Paul de Barros (1999)

Ellington even included a part for a tap dancer, performed here by Tim Hickey. Over the two-beat David Danced Before the Lord With All His Might, Hickey delivers an incredible display of percussive tap, sounding rhythmically like a snare drum in a second-line New Orleans ensemble.    Evan Dobbins - Jazz Radio 247

“Tap dancer Tim Hickey taps mightily on the appropriately named David Danced Before the Lord With All His Might."     Jay Thomas - SRJO News (2003)

"Tap dancer Hickey on the dynamic "David Danced Before the Lord with All His Might, Daniels on an ardent second version of the prayerful "Come Sunday. Eskridge, Hickey and the chorus join the orchestra on the soulful finale, 'Praise God and Dance.'” 

Jack Bowers (2005)

"Tim Hickey has energized our audiences for many years with his creative and entertaining tap dancing. His is a vital role in our annual Concert of Sacred Music by Duke Ellington, and Seattle audiences look forward with delight to seeing him back each and every year."    

Mike Brockman – Conductor/Co-Director of Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra (2005)
