Hi Karen, Once again you provided a wonderful evening of entertainment. We really enjoyed the entire show! I really liked your duet with a young "Karen" It was good to see Lisa and we really enjoyed her performance. Thank you for keeping the music alive in San Diego with such style and talent.

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...

Well my friend that came with me texted to say she had "Night and Day" stuck in her head and was humming it all day after hearing you sing it. This is who I go see bands like Pearl Jam with....I even felt the need to ask her if she knew what Phantom of the Opera was....you made a lasting impression and opened eyes ( and ears!) to something completely off her radar!

... 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 !!!

. . . Although I have only enjoyed your music there a handful of times, they all were memorable. You were the first professional to allow me to perform with you and for that you will always hold a special place in my memory. Thank you for being you and for the years of entertainment you have provided so many. . . .
