“My wife and I like to entertain at home and in the past have hired various musicians to provide the appropriate musical ambiance. We are always on the lookout for professionals whose musical talents will enhance any social event. A mutual friend mentioned Carole, so I called her. From my first awkward, 'You-don't-know-me, but...” sentence, speaking with Carole was like talking with an old friend. The conversation was instantly comfortable.

After discussing what we were looking for in terms of musical atmosphere and asking some questions about Carole's background and experience (which is very impressive), I retained Carole to play at a Sunday brunch we were hosting. In addition to her incredible musical talent, Carole has a warm, infectiously friendly personality, so she was a perfect fit for a warm and friendly event with friends and colleagues.

From the initial conversation, which was delightful, our entire “Carole experience,” as we refer to it, could not have been better. Carole, a consummate professional, arrived an appropriate amount of time before the event allowing a relaxed, unhurried opportunity for us to review where the event was being held (both inside and outside). After viewing the physical layout, I welcomed Carole's suggestion for a location to position herself for the maximum enjoyment of our guests, while not impeding the flow of people during the event.

Part of the enjoyment of watching and listening to Carole play is the enjoyment she projects while playing. She clearly loves what she does and that is reflected in her music. Her volume level (always a concern at a house party) was right on the mark -- not so loud as to make conversation difficult, but loud enough to be enjoyed by all. The mix of music was equally enjoyable, truly something for everybody.

Our guests loved Carole and we received lots of positive feedback after the brunch, not only about the wonderful music she provided, but for the guests who did speak with her, Carole could not have been more gracious and friendly to them, as well.

We are in the process of planning another event and it is a given that we want Carole. If she isn't available on the date we have in mind, that won't be a problem. We'll simply change our date to ensure that Carole is with us. We wouldn't have it any other way.”

“Carole's performace added an elegant yet comfortable and fun ambience to our outdoor wedding. She was very professional and friendly. She worked with us to ensure the music fit the occasion (various genres by request) and even added 2 new songs to her repertoire to make our day complete. We had many guests approach us after the wedding and share that they were very impressed by her music. My only regret it that I didn't request her music for the entire evening. I would certainly recommend her for any occasion and hope to work with her again for future events.”

“We could not have been more pleased with our experience with Carole! To start, she was very responsive and quick to return messages with any questions I had. She was quite informative as we have never used GigMasters before so she was very helpful with that as well. When it came time for our event, she showed up early and got set up in a very subtle, professional manner. Everyone loved her music, she had a great variety, perfect volume and it really enhanced our overall holiday party! Thank you so much, Carole! We would definitely recommend you to everyone we know! “ ~Misty Jacobs Engineering

“Exactly what I envisioned! Carole arrived, very organized, early, quietly set up her equipment and then started playing very nice music appropriate for the function. Right sound and the right amount of volume for the occasion. This was for a corporate outdoor patio function. Some of the people wandering around stopped a had a few dances - which wasn't expected. Would definitely call on Carole again! “Diana Costain

“Carole Pellatt gave a fantastic house concert in my home!  Over 50 friends came and enjoyed a wonderful night of music. One of my best friends said as he was leaving “Mike, thank you sooo much! I’ve been to lots of concerts and lots of music in every venue, but never in my life have I ever been to anything like this – the intimacy of a band in a home was really cool.”  Although Carole can really rock, her range is great and in home, all ages are “feeling it” together – although most of my friends were 30s to 50s the funniest thing all night was when Boneyard did a creative rendition of “Bye Bye Blackbird” and my 78 year old mother, sitting next to my 18 year old daughter, blurted out: “hey, I know that one!”

“I hired Carole to play at the Cocktail Hour for my wedding and she was very accommodating, playing the type of music we requested and making sure my guests were enjoying the performance. Although I never had a chance to hear her play at the wedding, I heard great things from my family and friends! I would definitely recommend Carole in the future!”
