RECENT CLIENT TESTIMONIALS: Thomas Lipsmeyer - Awards Night Client, The University of Chicago's Summer Institute of Sustainability and Energy "One word. Fabulous. Elaine performed at the concluding banquet for a sustainability and energy summer program that UIC threw at the Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier. Elaine sounded as wonderful by the end of the event as she did at the beginning. Her style, intonation, choice of music and stage presence were simply wonderful. The members of her band were also phenomenal musicians, and she could not have put together a better team. Elaine is not only EXTREMELY talented, but wonderful to work with. She was flexible in all things business and music related, and her sparkling personality made her a memorable addition to the banquet that she performed at. She was consistently doted over by attendees as one of the top reasons the evening was so successful. TRULY A TREAT." Steve Daugherty – Corporate Christmas Party Client “In a word: Awesome! Elaine performed at our Roaring 20's holiday party much to our guest's delight! She was fantastic to work with, and really helped to make our event a success! I would highly recommend Elaine for any event you are having!” Jeff Souva and Jim Bennett - Midwest Organizers, Lambda Legal Fundraising Event "We are honored to have had you perform at our event for the last two years! Your support and extra effort made the event so special. You and your band were fantastic! Our guests and attendees have greatly enjoyed your performances, especially the "sponsor song" you so effortlessly composed. Your talent and style is unmatched and your presence has helped us produce a beautiful and special evening." WHAT THE INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS SAY ABOUT ELAINE DAME: “UNBELIEVABLY Thankful I hired Elaine. I saw Elaine Dame perform at a holiday party, and I loved her energy, so when it was time to hire a jazz singer for a 100 person birthday event, I knew who to call. This was a huge weekend celebration with a LOT of moving parts. Without question, one of the best decisions I made was hiring Elaine. I knew she was lovely with great voice, from hearing her perform at the holiday party I attended. What I came to find out was that she is also INCREDIBLY flexible, professional, on-point, responsible, and helpful. Working with her was a complete pleasure. Without question, I would recommend her. If you hire her, I am sure you will be as pleased and relieved as I was to have found her.” Bryan Herb – Chief Marketing Officer, Zoom Vacations “Elaine is a class act - start to finish. We worked together on a very large event, and she handled all of the pre planning logistics with grace and a smile. She remained incredibly flexible through the end, and was always extremely responsive. The greatest pleasure was finally getting to hear her perform - she's an incredible talent, and performed a fantastic set that was perfect for the evening. It was a true joy, and I'd recommend her anywhere!” -MELISSA SNOWZA, Musical Coordinator, Private Event in Lake Geneva, WI

Corporate FunctionReviewed on October 9, 2018From Chicago, IL

Simply amazing! Excellent performance and highly professional from introduction to execution. Elaine and her band comes highly recommended for Corporate events. She was exceptionally accommodating as we requested her performance match our Speakeasy event performing Gatsby era music which the band delivered beyond expectation. Our thanks to Elaine and her talented band making our hospitality event highly memorable!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 23, 2019From Lake Geneva, WI

What can we say...we found Elaine and immediately fell in love with her - she is a definite true talent. Unmatched in every way imaginable. She belongs on the biggest stage and we had her for our wedding - Guests we’re so content in their surroundings because of her and her talented band mates. Everyone stayed til the end and it made our event that much more special. Her voice is right up there with the best and her showmanship was so impressive - she even stayed later than warranted to help emcee some late night prize giveaways and I can’t say enough about her - we feel like she’s a friend - a true friend - anybody would be lucky to have her perform. THE BEST!

Chicago Jazz Singer and Jazz Band, Elaine Dame:

Joe, thank you so much for taking the time to write this beautiful review. The best part for me is knowing that you and Erica were pleased! I can't thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your special day, it was truly an honor and a privilege for us. I hope to see you both again very soon!

WeddingReviewed on November 29, 2008From Hinsdale, IL

Elaine Dame is fabulous in every way. She is an accomplished vocalist, a great entertainer and also a true business professional. She just simply "gets it." We were thrilled with Elaine and her Quartet and highly recommend them for sophisticated jazz.
