"I am really grateful to you for the exposure
and networking that's enabled through your wonderful show. Thanks to your show I just composed a brand new song for Judi Mark.
I think you're both going to love it. It's all Judi... What an inspiring lady she is. I hope to attend your show with greater
frequency and I always bring many friends who are loving it too. It's like one big happy talented family... You, David, Melanie,

"An amazing time, hosted by
an amazing talent, at the amazing Algonquin. Do I need to say more? When I do make it back to the city, you can count
on me being there Sandy! With bells... It was a night to remember. :)"
Victoria, British Columbia
My partner and I were staying at
the A a few months back for the first time. We live in CT and come down to the city 2-3 weekends a month for business.
After our dinner we returned to the hotel intending to retire for the evening, but instead stayed down in the lobby to
enjoy the music and have a a little bubbly.
To us, Sandy your venue in the lobby is an entertaining yet quirky
bonus that most people, whether they live in Manhattan or visit, enjoy about the city.
Being in retail we are just recovering
form the holiday season, but first chance we get we plan on returning to the Algonquin, especially for the evening fun.
R. Cindy Kovacs
"The evening we spent at the Algonquin we got to enjoy you so much, we intended to come in
for one drink and because we couldn't get over the entertainment we ended up staying for that intended drink, a bottle of
wine, dinner, dessert and an after dinner drink. The warmth and history of the Algonquin is marvelous... But it was the
ambiance of you and your friends that made our minds up to stay. It created the full package.
All the best Sandy" Jackie Roberts
Victoria, British Columbia
"Sandy, every time we come to NYC
we made sure that we attended your fabulous show and we have at least a 4 hour drive home to Boston-if we lived in the city
we would probably attend every week. Looking forward to seeing you on our next trip."
