“Thanks for a great performance at Woodridge Jubilee, we all enjoyed the show!  Your ninety minute set of rock’n’roll left the audience wanting more. I just love a female fronted rockin’ band.” – Woodbridge Jubilee

“The Winfield Lion’s are not only very grateful for the contribution of your band, but we were very surprised. The level of professionalism, the sound, the musical selections, the execution and delivery made for one good and high-energy presentation. The sound engineer also had very good comments. The success of our endeavor in part is certainly attributable to the Karen Hart show. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!” – Winfield Good Old Days
