Christmas Show testimonial:

Just wanted you to know we were in the audience for the Sussex County PAC show and you and your orchestra were outstanding as always. We don't know how you do it, but you keep coming up with a different shows all the time. God bless you and all of you for allowing us to enjoy the music you provide for us. There were 25 of us from St. Jude's that night and ALL had a wonderful time.

Anniversary Show testimonial:

John,

My thanks to you and your colleagues for the terrific performance on Saturday evening. The inclusion of Somers Dream Orchestra to our Anniversary Gala was the perfect highlight to this very special milestone for the Quinlan family and the professional team at Karen Ann Quinlan Hspice.

Thank you for you continued support - Jennifer

A touching testimonial:

"I attended your concert in Riverdale, NJ, on August 13, 2008 and not only did
I thoroughly enjoy the night's performance, but I was so touched by your
patriotic tribute at the end of the concert. Tears were streaming down my
cheeks and as I said to my family later, how wonderful it was to be a
part of America being honored instead of hearing from the "blame America
first" crowd which we hear too much of these days.

Thank you for an enjoyable evening and a heart-warming finale!"

Everybody Loves this CD:

Amazon.com exclaims:

"A Mid-Somers Night Dream" is a fast paced, super-swinging CD featuring some of the greatest tunes around. The CD shows off some of the finest performances on the big band scene today by one of the top bands on the East Coast. Packed with exciting vocalists, dynamic instrumental soloists, and blistering ensemble playing, this CD will take you from sentimental to hot in a New York jazz minute!"


Haybert Houston - Publisher, Editor Jazz Now Magazine gives it his critical editorial blessing:

"I am personally impressed with this band! The Somers Dream Orchestra deliberately keeps the tunes reasonably short and picks mostly standards for the sake of the listeners. This will appeal to the jazz/big-band market and should interest the swing-craze kids, the older folks like me and the general listening public."
