What a wonderful evening. 

You were radiant at the keys!

And your vocal renditions were so touching, exquisite vocally, and so deeply you: emotionally rich, gracefully kind, and movingly engaging.

I loved the way you so artfully handle the audience and how you beautifully gave back each request.

Karen at the Keys is a treasure for the Westgate.

Karen:  THANK YOU for yet another delightful Evening With Karen.  David and I so much enjoy your events.  What  HOOT, having you explain how we met at the Patsy Cline show.  How lucky we were that night.  In the lobby as we were leaving, Jerome from Palm Springs was heading for the head.  I told him San Diegans call summer visitors from Arizona “Zonies.”  I said I will call him a “Palmie.”  He laughed and said YES – I LIKE IT.
 
I told the gal who was with Gaetano that my grandmother’s name was Gaetana.  She died one week before I was born.  My aunts pressured my folks to name me Gaetana.  My mother, whose parents were from Prague, said NO WAY.  Back then it was “Be American.”  So I got named Lois.  Gaetana would have been so much more INTERESTING.  Keep Kewl...

Many thanks for your excellent performance last evening in The Midnight Sun Lounge . . . It was certainly a polished performance and it was a pleasure to listen to your playing and vocalizing. The reaction of the audience was evidence that the evening was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

Karen, Susan and I visited last night so that I could renew a friendship with David, but your really professional performance was a real bonus. In fact, had I known you were so talented we would have made the trip in any case. You will most certainly see us again and next time we'll bring some friends. I can check your web site to see where you will be next month.

... What an enjoyable evening - you are so good at sharing your stage with singers and making it seem like you have been playing together for a long time. Your expertise and years of singing always shines thru and highlights the great talent you display every time you see (sic) behind the piano. Great song selections - my favorite was September Song. It was a fun nite !!!

Re: The Spirit of Cabaret | Dinner + Show: Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your show this past Saturday. Really top notch. And what I especially liked was that there were songs we'd never heard before - I liked the new material. And Mr Piano was great - nice choice.

And you looked lovely, as always. Thanks for a really nice evening out and a great dinner as well. Looking forward to the next one.
