# As my rating suggests, Gilda is the consummate professional. I had never hired someone to come and sing before, however my experience with Gilda made things extremely easy and added a wonderful touch to my party. Despite a snowstorm on the eve of the event, Gilda kept in touch and did whatever was in her power to get to the party as soon as she was able. Once there, she hit the ground running and turned out an amazing performance. She has a beautiful voice, is stunning in appearance and is an all-around wonderful person who clearly loves what she does. I would hire her again to perform and suggest you do the same. -- Ted B, Upper Darby, PA

# We had a great time and got exactly what we wanted by hiring Gilda with Steve. They can really sing! Their voices were on point and every song seemed to be perfect for them. The entertainment was a dream. While Steve is handsome and Gilda is beautiful,their talent and wonderful personalities top everything. We discussed song requests and outfits before hand and they delivered. I was proud of their professionalism, because they made me look good. I couldn't have asked for anything else. At the end of the night I felt as if I had just scratched the surface, so I will hire them again and again. You can't go wrong with these two. -- Annable W, Voorhees, NJ
