MOST OFTEN WHEN CLIENTS LISTEN TO THE MUSIC SHE GETS HIRED! "I AM HERE TO PLEASE AND TOTALLY LOVE WHAT I DO!!!"

Here's what others are saying about Laurie:

“You were an excellent addition to our evening. We enjoyed your music!”
-- Cheryl Whitehead, BAA (Boulder Arts Association)

“Your music and personality were just great for Saturday morning at Relay for Life!” (Fundraiser for American Cancer Society)
-- Laura Bemis, Executive Director for United Way in Casper

"Girl - You are Good! Best Lady Guitar Player on earth! And dats da truf!"
--Carmen Allgood, owner and producer of The Colorado Wave Radio

"Laurie D's new CD is one of the best recordings of 2008 and her guitar playing is some of the best I have heard. If you somehow missed 'Can't Wait to See You Again' in your busy life, go to her web site and listen and then get it. She is one of Colorado's best and this CD is not to be missed."
– Chris Daniels, musician

“Dameron's playing is a nice blend of old school Jazz Guitar, Rock n' Roll double stops and swing blues. Her Guitar tone is crisp and smooth, giving her just enough bite for when she does her Bluesy Jazz thang…”
--Lyle Robinson, Jazz Guitar Life Magazine

“I Can't Wait to See You Again. Mellow out with the third album from this talented Boulder-based jazz singer and guitarist, who celebrates the disc's release with a concert Wednesday at Dazzle Restaurant and Lounge in Denver. Whether playing originals, classic blues tunes, jazz standards or Brazilian favorites, Dameron keeps things tasty and understated. She's got talent to spare but resists the urge to show off.
-- Greg Glasgow, Boulder Daily Camera

“Based in Colorado, Dameron has an echoey acoustic sound on her guitar that is slightly reminiscent of Pat Metheny at times. Her music is soothing, danceable (but with subtle rhythms) and pleasing.”
--Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene

“Guitarist/Vocalist Laurie Dameron's latest CD, I Can't Wait to See You Again, is a musical journey through the Great American Songbook. Backed by some of Colorado's top notch musicians, Laurie makes the trip down memory lane worth revisiting time and time again.”
--Susan Gatschet Reese, Assistant Program Director jazz89 KUVO

“Utah Dream is "a CD consisting of classic folk, jazz and blues underlined by the lilt of a voice so distinct that only one word could describe it: beautiful." -- Laurence Washington, Boulder Daily Camera music critic

"Celestial vocals layered over sophisticated guitar riffs are hallmarks of Laurie Dameron's compositions. They encompass a variety of musical styles from moody acoustic pieces to rock, jazz and blues influences." –
-- Freelance writer Marilyn Gleason

"Delicate voice and confident guitar mark her work..." -- David Thomas, Denver Post

Laurie was excellent! She learned "On Eagle's Wings" and played it as I walked down the aisle with my mom and dad. It was so special because it's my dad's favorite song and it was a surprise for him...it was amazing! She learned another song too! I was completely happy with her performance and I would recommend her to anyone! At the cocktail hour she kept the kids entertained and that was awesome! After the wedding several people came to me to tell me that they thought she was great and totally made the ceremony special. She did everything we asked and more! Five stars for Laurie Dameron! Couldn't have been happier with choosing her!

Laurie D is extremely versatile - exactly what I hoped for! A "Celebration of Life" service is very specialized and takes great care. Our family & friends were comforted with poignant music and after the service part we partied in honor of my sister. This was held at her assisted living facility. Laurie did everything I requested and then some! She's a great entertainer and I suggested to the director that they have her become a regular for their parties. Her acoustical guitar music and singing was enjoyed by all. She has an extensive playlist and tons of experience with seniors. This is just one facet of Laurie's talent, she will accommodate your function perfectly!

She was incredibly easy and accommodating to deal with both leading up to and during our event. She helped make it an exceptional party and we will certainly be asking her back this year!
