Review by Anonymous A.

WeddingReviewed on September 4, 2023From Lake Geneva, WI

Judy was fantastic!

Judy Bowen:

Thank you for the wonderful review, Darcy! I really appreciate it. Thanks for having me play for your cocktail hour - it was a lovely reception and stunning venue at the Riviera! Best wishes to you both! Judy

Review by Beth F.

Private PartyReviewed on March 14, 2023From Shorewood, WI

Judy was great at reading the crowd and playing what was right as the party evolved - softer background music to begin, then faster on temporary and classic hits. She had laminated song lists for requests. Great addition to our party.

Judy Bowen:

Thank you for the wonderful review, Beth! I really appreciate it! Thanks for having me play - it was a fun party!! :)

Review by Gregory W.

Private PartyReviewed on January 15, 2023From Madison, WI

Judy played for us for five whole hours, never repeating a song! She delighted all of our guests. We received many appreciative comments both during and long after the party detailing how much they enjoyed listening to Judy and how talented she is. We look forward to having her play again!

Judy Bowen:

Thanks for the wonderful review, Greg! I really appreciate it. Thanks for having me play for your New Years Eve party! It was a lovely party and I had a great time playing! Can't wait to play again for your next party!
