We have had the pleasure of having Crescendo Amelia Big Band at our theatre for sold out concerts on two occasions. Band members were easy to work with, being both reliable & professional with great enthusiasm for their music. The audiences at our 170 seat theater ranged in age from children to senior citizens and all agreed that it was a terrific concert, and that they would return to hear the band again.

I can't begin to tell you how much my Dad and I loved the show last night! We have already decided that it MUST be our new family holiday tradition. From the musical selections that were chosen to the range of vocal stylings within the genre, to the fabulous surprises (swing dancers - INSPIRED!; aerial ballet - THRILLING!) to the wonderful rapport of the performers with each other - it was a holiday gem for ALL ages. This was my Christmas present to my Dad and he said "no other gift will surpass it.
