WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Timothy & Miriam 

"Kathryn's performance and classy style were a perfect fit for our wedding day. She coordinated her band members and made the trip from Montreal to Toronto! She performed with her band both indoors and outdoors despite the chilly October weather.

 

We received SO MANY compliments about her performance, and one of our guests even said they were sad when she finished! An engaged couple that attended our wedding requested her contact info when they were celebrating with us because they wanted her for their upcoming wedding. She even performed two new songs that we requested!

 

Kathryn is extremely accommodating, talented, and professional. She was a focal part of our evening, and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for a captivating, live performer.

Thanks again for everything Kathryn; best wishes!"

Bob & Suzanne 

"Nous tenons à souligner notre appréciation pour votre belle performance lors de notre mariage le 17 septembre 2016. Votre sélection de musique et de chants était parfaite et a créé un beau lien entre la cérémonie du mariage, le cocktail, le repas et la première danse. Le tout était vraiment harmonieux. Nos invités vous ont décrite comme une belle présence avec une voix d'ange. Le pianiste, Jérôme Beaulieu, et le bassiste , Philippe Leduc, jouaient de façon passionnée et juste, une combinaison gagnante.

 

L'intensité sonore aussi était  parfaite, on pouvait parler et se comprendre. On déteste tous cette musique tellement forte q'il faut presque crier pour se comprendre et encore! Si nous avons un autre événement qui  demande une présence musicale,  c'est certain que nous faisons de nouveau appel à vos talents car vous avez apporté une belle contribution au succès de notre mariages"
