What People Are Saying...

We were at Butcharts tonight, and we had a great time! It was 90 minutes of toe tapping fun! You looked like you were having a great time too! You really look like you just love what you do, it is so apparent. Those backup singers were amazing. Do they do more than 1 song, when you perform longer?
Sabrina and Al

“What a night!  We really enjoyed the music and the performance.  It was so much fun.  The band was so talented and the vocalists provided a great show.  We could tell by the crowd singing along that everyone felt the same.”
Hope Hilliard
“You were great to listen to … yes, what a perfect night!”    
Corinne Marshall

“We were blown away by this band!  The calibre of this group went far beyond our expectations. Not only does Queenie have a terrific voice and stage presence but also her instrumental backup (some of who also sing quite well) were terrific: two saxes, a trombone, a trumpet, a drummer, a lead and bass guitar and a keyboard gives this group all the ammo it needs to belt out a wide repertoire of terrific hits.”    
Barry Gaetz
“What a wonderful job you all did. The energy level on that little stage, could have powered the Legislature light bulbs.
Keep up the good work.”
Wendy W.

I've begun my day by diggin' on Bruce Ham!  

"The more things change; the more they stay the same."  

You are my Tower of Power, Dr. Ham.  Great idea to ustream it, especially for those of us who don't live on the island.  Watched the entire show.  
Congratulations to all of you.
