Review by Heather K.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 21, 2021From Austin, TX

My parents loved their visit from Shirley! She made the surprise performance extra special by asking my dad what his favorite polka was and offering to make a “happy birthday” sign for him from his kids since we couldn’t be there in person. My dad also appreciated that she was personable enough to chat with them! We are very grateful for Shirley and her beautiful voice and musical talent!!

Private PartyReviewed on November 7, 2020From New Braunfels, TX

Shirley performed at our private party with a Wurstfest theme. I was impressed with her flexibility and professionalism throughout. In spite of performing for a relatively small group because of the pandemic.. She delivered a high quality program of songs that entertained and enlightened the entire evening. I enthusiastically recommend her for your next event.
