Dear Madeline and Rich, "Richard and I would like to thank you for making our children's engagement party a great success. The music and Madeline's singing were just fabulous. We could talk to each other, enjoy the music or dance to it. The choice of songs was great!"
Suzanne and Richard Wolstein

Dear Madelyn: I just want to thank you for the wonderful evening you and Richie and the band provided last night. Everyone who danced had a terrific time. But equally enthusiastic were the people who didn't and just loved listening to the band and watching the dancers. There was one widower who got up to show someone how to dance-- and Heather said it was the first time she had seen him smile in six months! So thank you! And we will look forward to seeing you soon. Regards, Cathy
