Thank you SO much for an awesome [music] show at Matt's first birthday! You were amazing with all the kids! And it was really special to not only include Matt so much but also make his big sister Hailey feel just as special.
The show was amazing and you and [your husband] Mr Jerry are a well-oiled machine! All the parents were commenting on how seamless everything was....it really was awesome! The kids had a blast (and the adults did too!) Thank you for everything!
Best Regards," Kristin K, Monroe, NJ (baby's first birthday party)

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the wonderful music show you did for the children in our program at the Barclay's.
All of our children, even the ones as young as two, really enjoyed your show. Thank you for keeping them so engaged throughout the entire program and for all the laughs and giggles!
We travel throughout the country, and your music show was truly one of the most entertaining and developmentally appropriate ones we have ever had the pleasure of participating in [in over 17 years].
We hope to see you again next year!"

"I just wanted to thank you and your husband so very much for your performance at Aasha's 2nd birthday party this weekend. I have seen over 30 children's music performers in Manhattan, and I have to tell you, I have not seen one that has been able to tune into her audience like you.
I was so impressed with your ability to engage such a wide range of ages (given that we had boys and girls ranging in age from 8 to 2). In fact, there was not one mother there that didn't comment on how great you were and how much fun their child had. I know that at least 3 will be in touch for their son/daughter's birthday."
All the best," -Priya M, Flemington, NJ (2nd birthday party)
Thank you so much for your performance at our sons' birthday party on August 25th. Both kids and adults enjoyed it and commented on how great the music and activities were. We've had musicians in the past, but they were far from as talented or entertaining as you! It's a great show and I will make sure to recommend you to others.
-Vinnie & Brady R., Ledgewood, NJ (first & third birthday party)
"The party was AMAZING because of you! The true testament to the success of the party was our guests asking for your contact information. And honestly, if this was the standard for a two-year old birthday party, I have no idea how to top it! Bella and her friends had the best time - as a matter of fact, it was the talk of the neighborhood on Monday, with neighbors claiming that it was "the bomb."
Thanks again for providing the talent - from your selection of music, activities and voice - the instruments that even the parents wanted to play, and of course the bubble machine. We have wonderful memories and the most animated and joyful pictures you can imagine.
Many, many thanks!!" -Jennifer T, West Orange, NJ (2 year old birthday party)
"I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful entertainment at Ellie and Alexa's First Birthday party this past Saturday.

Hopefully you might get a few more calls from it as well!!
Thanks again!" - Dara M, West Orange, NJ (first birthday party)

You and your husband make a great team! We wish you lots of luck in your business because you have something that touches many people and that is your love of music and children.
Thanks again and we appreciate all you've done.
-Carmen L, Bloomfield, NJ (2nd birthday party)
"The kids (all of them) had a blast at Kwyne's party. My 6 year old niece tells me, "that was the best baby party." It was nice to see all of the kids interacting with the limbo and the musical instruments....even the 10 and 11 year olds.
My co-workers are still talking about the "music lady."
I want to thank you for fitting us into your busy schedule. The party turned out really really nice, thanks to you." -Erika P, Hillside, NJ (one year old birthday party)

"Kathy I want you to know how wonderful a job you did this past Saturday. You were the talk of the party and I don't think there was a mother who wasn't impressed. Plan on hearing from us again in the future since I anticipate having you entertain for Gavin's Birthday parties. You really know your craft, kept ALL the children captive and engaged for the full duration of your performance.
Job well done!!!" -Susan M (first birthday party)
"I just wanted to send you a note to say Thank you for a great job at Matthew's 1st Birthday party this past weekend. We received so many compliments on your performance.

"I just want to thank you SO much for a terrific show you and your husband gave us on Sunday. The kids really enjoyed it, and I think the adults enjoyed watching just as much! You should be so proud of the work you do. The kids just love you, and you can tell by the way you interact with them, that you love them too.
"Yesterday when I was getting Ally dressed, I asked her what her favorite part of her birthday weekend was, and she said, "my favorite part was singing & playing with the rubber duckies that the singing lady gave us!" That just made my whole day, because I thought she was going to say "going to Giggles on my birthday." It's an indoor playground that she absolutely loves, but she said you were her favorite part. Not the presents, not the cake, not running around like a nut, but your show.
"So I can't thank you enough for making our little princess so happy, and for making her party such a success." -Ginny E. Denville, NJ (4 year old birthday party)

Even the youngest babies were amused by the cheerful songs, brightly colored scarves, squeaking ducks and billions of bubbles. Many of the parents asked for your information and I gladly passed it along.

We all enjoyed your music!

It was also noted that you and your husband worked flawlessly as a team which made all your transitions from theme to theme flow so smoothly, it was impressive.
Thanks again for your time. We loved having you visit us! We will keep you in mind for future parties!" -Kimberly Y, Matawan, NJ (preschool birthday party)

Anyway, thank you a million times! Everyone was asking about you after the party so I'm sure you'll be getting some phone calls here and there for more children's parties.
Take care and hope to cross paths with you again someday!

Thanks to you and Jerry for a great show on Saturday. The kids and parents loved it and the weather added an extra bit of fun with the bubbles and scarves blowing wildly in the wind. You were so wonderful with the kids (several of the parents commented on that too) and especially with Jamie.
Your approach with Jamie could not have been better with your balance of letting her have her space and celebrating her birthday with acknowledgments of her day. Jamie talked about how much she loved the show too.
Please give a big thank you to Jerry as I know he is equally important in the success of the performance.
Warm Regards," -Theresa M, Middlesex, NJ (4th birthday party)
