What They Are Saying

. . . 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. . . .

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.

Hey Karen, I just played your "A Most Unusual Christmas" album while I was going through my e-mails and was able to really listen without interruption ... It is really fabulous!! ... So many great numbers and love the arrangements. Girl, you sound great! I know I've played it many times before but you know me, always multi-tasking and you don't always 'get it' when you're only half listening. Simply put -- Love it!

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.

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...
