PRIVATE PARTIES & FUNCTIONS

 

Dear Marlena, On behalf of the Milford Lions Club, I would like to thank you for the great performance you provided for our 34th annual Senior Dinner held on January 12, 2013. As Chair of the event, I was hoping and had envisioned that our guests would be entertained and get involved rather than just dine and leave shortly after. You more than fulfilled my hope and vision. You have a beautiful presence and a wonderful voice and certainly provided much joy to all present. Again, thank you so very much and we would gladly recommend you for any upcoming opportunity.

Rhonda L. Wynne, 1st VP Milford Lions Club

 

You took what could have been a quiet and ordinary going away party for Betty, and turned it into a full blown party with your song selection, your beautiful voice and your fun personality. As you know, there were some who didn't want the night to end. I can see why you were so highly recommended. Thank you so much for helping the party be such a memorable and fun evening.

All by themselves, Marlena’s songs provided our guests with a wonderful evening.  Add to that the scrumptious food, the gorgeous blooms in your garden and the company of interesting people and you’ve got an amazing evening. Thank you Marlena.

Marlena has been performed for us for several years for our Holiday party. When she is scheduled to perform, there is always a high attendance. When she performs, those in the audience feel they are at a “real concert”, and they say that she has an amazing voice. Marlena is very personable and always takes time to interact with her audience. I highly recommend Marlena for any opportunity she reaches for.

We have hired Marlena as our star attraction for our holiday parties for the past 4 years, which includes residents and their families. Residents, family and friends continually tell me for weeks thereafter how much they enjoyed themselves dancing and listening to Marlena sing. Her beautiful voice, caring nature and joy of music do not go unnoticed. I'd highly recommend her to anyone not only because of her beautiful voice and ability to get her audience involved, but also because of the love and joy she so easily expresses.

Thank you so much Marlena….you truly made the evening a smashing success…Hope you will consider offering a Frank and Ella evening again next year. Many many thanks to you.

Hi Marlena, You got rave reviews from everybody!!! They loved your voice, your conga line, your circle dance,  your interaction, your personality. Thank you for helping make our event a tremendous success. Also, thanks for just being you.

FESTIVALS & PUBLIC SHOWS

Marlena’s performance at Church of Our Saviour’s Peach Festival fundraiser was exactly what we were looking for. She has a beautiful voice, sang all the classic favorites, and established a wonderful rapport with the audience. We’ll definitely invite her back again!

Both at the lunchtime concert and the (Keene and Milford) Pumpkin Festivals, you had the crowd on their feet, dancing and singing to a greater degree than every band put together all weekend. (Pumpkin Festival). You gave them what they want, and you are just what this town needs.

The crowd was just amazed at your voice and your stage presence. We don’t hear people who can sing like that! I’ll be in touch with you for future bookings.

It was so elegant to have you singing in my store during the downtown Taste Of Milford Dinner event. People stayed in my store longer to listen to you, and you actually drew a crowd of fans on the sidewalk. What a treat to have a talented professional here. Will you come and sing here every weekend?

FUNERALS & LIFE CELEBRATIONS

 

Dear Marlena, Your emotional performances of our father's favorite songs left not a dry eye in the church. We were blown away by your sensitivity and power, and I know that he was with us, enjoying you just as much as we were. Your voice provided the perfect mood for us to remember the good times and say goodbye. I couldn't be more thankful and I will recommend you to everyone I hear of who might need music for their own service.

The Wilson Family, Bedford, NH

  

Marlena, Our family would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for your outstanding voice. I don't think I've ever heard a more beautiful voice than yours. My mother would have loved listening to you, especially because she herself loved to sing. You sang her favorite hymns with such feeling that a few of our guests assumed that you knew her. We are so lucky we found you. Thank you for helping to make our mom's celebration of life beautiful, emotional and memorable.
