Evelyn and her jazz band provided a wonderful atmosphere to our company event. With style and class she entertained everyone and was such a delight to have to work with. Everyone in attendance loved the music and her singing was outstanding.UH Harrington Heart & Vascular InstituteNov 4, 2016Cleveland Museum of Natural History
The trio was excellent. Personally, I had to keep glancing over at them to remind myself that they were live and not a recording. They were that good!!!Angie Williams, Cleveland Clinic African American Social EventAug 17, 2008Shoreby Club
