My bestfriend had oral surgery and had her wisdom teeth removed. She had such a hard time. But Elizabeth made her day, got her up and crying like a baby (in a good way). Thank you for helping me take care of my friend, this was definitely worth every penny!
Elizabeth was fantastic -- she was super great to work with, very accommodating, and performed wonderfully. It was a surprise event for my friend's birthday that I unfortunately could not make it to, but I received several excited texts and videos about her performance. They loved it.
Elizabeth is amazing, i constantly had to change the venue and timing, but she was sooo accomodating! And the telegram was a super duper hit!
Thank you so much once again Elizabeth!
My daughter was right there and commented on Elizabeth's beautiful singing voice.
I don't know where to start... Elizabeth was a dream come true hands down OMG! Her voice is beautiful as well as her energy, her customer service is unmatched. I sent my bf a Singing Telegram to his job to wish him luck on his test & to say I love him as a surprise. Not only did she nail the song she was sweet & creative to add our names in the lyrics.
Elizabeth also volunteered to have her awesome daughter record the moment for me because I had nobody to be there to capture it. The video she sent was GREEEAAAT the footage was like a love confession through song to my Romeo for I am his Juliet. She called and asked me imperative questions even gave me an option to give him flowers or a balloon along with a card with a personal message from me to him.
THE BEST...BEST...BEST... I love me some her!
I would recommend her to the world selecting her services was like hitting the damn jackpot. I posted the amazing video on social media people went crazy seeing it a classic tear jerker. I cried when I first watched it, I then texted her saying THANKS a million times. I can say this over and over she's THE BEST no debating. WAIT... Did I mention she's gorgeous so that makes it a true treat. A bubbly personality, warm, affable, professional, caring and then some. You can tell she loves bringing joy to people lives mission accomplished.
EPIC IS ALL I'LL SAY! #TeamLizzyGram
Elizabeth was fantastic! The parody of the Peter, Paul, and Mary song fit the event perfectly!
I had a wonderful experience! What an awesome talent. She was prompt and professional. Her voice was beautiful. Within a short notice she learned a song, memorized it and performed it! I will definitely book again.
It was amazing!! Thank you so much!
She is fantastic! She wrote a song and performed with less than 24 hours notice ! Highly recommend!!!
Elizabeth’s beautiful voice perfectly captured the emotion that I wanted to convey to my wife on our 11th anniversary. Thank you so much!
Elizabeth was beyond great. She tailored the perfect song for my friend’s birthday in a very short amount of time. I would definitely book her again.
Elizabeth was amazingly understanding with our requests and quite accommodating to make sure it was a special event. Then she sang and her beautiful voice enchanted the recipient and all of us in the room. Couldn’t recommend her higher.
Elizabeth did a great job... She even learned the song I wanted in one night! .. I just really appreciate her helping me make the day so special for my boyfriend's birthday.. I would definitely book her again in the future.. as well as share my experience with others..
We were SO pleased with Elizabeth's wonderful performance! Having her partner there was also an added bonus and surprise. The birthday boy (celebrating 80 years young) was totally surprised and enjoyed having some of his favorite tunes played!!
Working with Elizabeth was a dream: she is responsive, flexible, and helps you make your ideas better. She took our song, lauding a good friend who was leaving the company after many years, and made it an event. Flawless performance, just the right approach for the situation. We all laughed and cried, watching her at his house over Zoom, and that is what we wanted. And she added a bouquet of flowers and suggested we add a short statement at the end. She gave our pal the flowers and the statement, so he'd have it, too.
Hire Elizabeth and DC Telegrams--find a way to write new lyrics to an old song with her help and let someone know how special they are to you. Having someone come and sing what you feel to people you cannot be with may be an old idea, but it is a GOOD idea. Everyone was moved and happy to be able to express their feelings this way. Our friend could not stop saying how this little thing just blew him away. Thanks, Elizabeth!
DC telegrams did a great job for my sister’s 40th! Elizabeth pulled it all together on short notice, and it was the perfect way to make her day special from far away. So glad we did it!
Super professional, amazing voice and willing to work with you
Would hire again anytime
Elisabeth, what can I say. What a wonderful singer, person, woman. She really made our Valantines Day extra special. Thank you again. Great communication, she kept me updated at all times. Her voice - like an angel.
Beautiful voice, superb singing telegram! Goosebump performance! Elizabeth made a birthday surprise- very personal and one to remember! Highly recommend!
Elizabeth killed it. She brought cheer to an otherwise dour holiday season. With the pandemic and all the social distancing and such, Elizabeth provided that human connection -- being from ATL, we couldn't be together so kudos the DC Telegrams.
Elizabeth was attentive and able to capture all the details of my requests. She was very flexible and accommodating! I thought DC Telegrams went above and beyond to ensure it was a memorable moment - my friend loved the surprise! Thank you, Elizabeth!
Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with and showed up promptly with her husband. They were musically great, sweet, and provided a perfect bday surprise!
Elizabeth was very patient and flexible throughout the planning process. She has a great since of humor and the recipient loved it, they were literally in tears of joy. Highly recommend!
Elizabeth was amazing! She was on time, her voice is beautiful, the song she made up was awesome, the flowers are beautiful, and she was simply the best. We have been watching the video over and over and sending it to all of our friends. I would definitely hire her again.
She was absolutely amazing. She added lyrics to fit our message. With a card and balloons. She gave more than we ever expected
I ordered the telegram from a distance. I do not live in the DC area. I found it was very easy to work with the musician and the company. Elizabeth kept an open line of communication and responded quickly. I wasn't expecting that she would include roses and a note from us. It was a nice touch. My daughter loved the singing telegram. She said that Elizabeth made her feel very special. Since I wasn't going to be there to see the event, Elizabeth sent me a video of it.
Provided excellent service on short notice. Would recommend and use again. Awesome!
It was so easy to organize and Elizabeth was flexible about all aspects! It was a great surprise and I would definitely use this company again :-)
I completely caught my wife off guard with Elizabeth’s help! Her coworkers and security guards all gathered around to capture the event! Elizabeth sang and played the guitar with the song of my choice and read my wife a letter I wrote and gave her a bouquet of roses 🌹!! Awesome experience!
My siblings and I had the last minute idea to serenade our uncle on his 100th birthday. Elizabeth stepped up and sang sweetly to him from a safe distance. And have him flowers! He absolutely loved it. A huge hit. Thanks Elizabeth!
Elizabeth with DC telegrams performed a singing telegram for my friend’s birthday. She was great to work with, putting up with my high maintenance requests and last minute schedule (not that I recommend doing that to her again! ;)) She was lovely to work with and gave a great performance. Loved the whole package. I would definitely use her services again and recommend DC telegrams to anyone :).
DC Telegrams is the perfect gift for any occasion. She is very gifted with musical ability. What could be better than a birthday surprise of roses, live entertainment and a personalized song written for the special someone being celebrated. I highly recommend DC Telegrams for a creative one of kind gift that your loved ones will remember and cherish forever❤️
Elizabeth is simply amazing. I was lucky to book her the day before the performance as this idea was last minute. She rewrote Say Hey (Michael Franti & Spearhead) for us covid style and sang Your Song (Elton John) so beautifully my mother-in-law cried. Elizabeth is incredibly talented. She promptly answers messages and was very easy to work with. If she is available, she's the one! She really made our birthday celebration so special. Thank you again Elizabeth!!!
Elizabeth arrived right on time, and my husband was totally surprised when she and a singing partner approached our intimate outdoor wedding anniversary celebration where we were having a beer after dinner under our new twinkle lights, accompanied by our sweet old hound napping beside us. She and her partner sang harmoniously our very favorite wedding song and strummed their guitars perfectly. She invited us to dance, paused smoothly to snap a gorgeous photo, and then finished up the telegram by reading a sweet note that I'd written in advance to share with my husband. This put a cherry on top of our special, romantic outdoor evening. What a memorable and magical experience!
I booked Elizabeth for a birthday surprise serenade for my mother-in-law in Chevy Chase. It was her 81st birthday, and she needed nothing at all. But my husband and I love this woman dearly, so it was important to us (from the west coast) that she feel loved, appreciated and special on her birthday. SCORE! Elizabeth sang beautifully (we have a video), personalizing the birthday song, reading a birthday greeting we had written, and, she included a lovely bouquet of yellow roses. Practicing social distancing, she serenaded from the sidewalk.
This is a priceless gift, and possibly the best we ever have given to her. If you are on the fence, hop off and hire Elizabeth for your event! She was so easy to work with, super positive and uncomplicated. I'd give her 10 stars if I could, for making my mother-in-law feel special on her 81st birthday. BRAVO!
My daughters 11th birthday during Covid-19 was not the way she would have wanted. But Elizabeth made it so special. Sang her favorite song on the guitar and brought her a balloon and her favorite Hershey bar! Thank you Elizabeth!
Elizabeth was amazing and super flexible as our plan and the weather changed! She made my friends birthday extra special - can’t thank her enough:)
My boyfriend wanted to do something nice for my birthday and since are all locked in there wasn’t much we could do with the stuff going on. He looked around and found Elizabeth and decided it would be a nice surprise to have her come by and sing happy birthday to me in Spanish! (I’m from Paraguay) and it was the best part of the day!! She not only sounds like an angel but she took the time to learn the words to a song in a language she was not familiar with and went out of the way to find the song we specifically sing in my country. She even brought a bouquet of beautiful flowers and finished it off reading a poem my boyfriend wrote for my birthday. It was a beautiful experience and we will definitely want her to sing at our wedding some day! I highly, highly recommend her for any ocasio! Even if it’s just a random surprise!
Elizabeth helped make a canceled wedding date special for my friend and her fiance! She wrote a thoughtful and hilarious parody for the couple, and it was perfect! She went above and beyond what was expected, and my friends felt so incredibly special. You will not regret working with DC Telegrams to deliver a unique, thoughtful, and special message. I will definitely keep them in mind for future events!
We had Elizabeth out to sing for my husband on his birthday and she was fantastic! The balloon and card she brought were the perfect touch and my husband was surprised and delighted. Her communication was great and her voice is beautiful! I highly recommend Elizabeth!
Elizabeth and her family performed a moving concert for a couple following their wedding ceremony. A surprise for the couple, who thoroughly loved being invited to their first dance on the steps of the church. Highly recommend Elizabeth.
We can't say enough about Elizabeth! She delivered an outstanding birthday message to our 85 year old Dad during this COVID 19 time. She asked for his favorite song and she learned the difficult Major-General's song from Pirates of Penzance. She sang the song with ease and enthusiasm, even behind a mask. We are so grateful for Elizabeth- she brightened his day and was the perfect birthday surprise!
had to do something special for my grands 18th since I couldn't be there. The performance was top notch. It made the day so festive. My grand was in awe. She performed forever yound perfectly. She was on time and was very helpful coordinating with me. She is top notch!!!
Elizabeth stopped by to sing to my wife on her first mother’s day. She made it a day we will never forget. She was extremely prompt and professional and even Provided us a bonus song! I would highly recommend Elizabeth.
I was looking for a Mother’s Day gift and thought it would be nice to hire someone to sing a song or two from the sidewalk (given social distancing ya’ know). Elizabeth offered to do a mini-concert of 3 songs with her husband helping out. They played our wedding song, learned one of my wife’s favorite songs and closed with Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds. They left us (and many of our neighbors who came out to watch) feeling everything really is gonna be alright. Thank you for helping me to make Mother’s Day very special for my very special wife :-)
just great. thank you
Elizabeth was so flexible ! I had to change things about this singing telegram so many times and she was always willing. She has a great attitude, and is very responsive. She did a wonderful job and I would absolutely recommend her to others! So talented and a beautiful voice. Thank you so much! I appreciate her calmness about performing during a pandemic. Such a professional!
Elizabeth went the extra mile so our new family memeber could have a great 50th bday even if we couldn't join him. TU Elizabeth
I purchased a birthday singing telegram for my husband’s 40th. I ordered last minute to make it a complete surprise. Elizabeth did a wonderful job and it will be something my husband remembers forever. Highly recommend!!
Response from DC Telegrams:
Thanks, Alison! We really appreciate your business and the look on your husband’s face was priceless. :-)
Went the extra mile to make sure the job got done
Response from DC Telegrams:
Thanks, Daniel! I’m so glad we could make your special person smile! :-)
Ordered a Surprise Singing telegram on Valentine's day for my mother. I ordered last minute but they were ready and got everything done. They were on time, provided flowers and delivered a spectacular song. The song was Whitney Houston's " I Will Always Love you" which is hard for most people to sing and they did the song justice. They delivered to my distant mom and well worth the money.
Elizabeth was fantastic! We booked our event last minute (within a week) and she was responsive and helpful, allowing us to coordinate a birthday telegram easily. She was on time and completely surprised my mom. The hat and flowers were a nice added touch. I definitely recommend Elizabeth to anyone who needs a fun surprise for a loved one.
Elizabeth Kaminski was phenomenol. Ontime, attentive to the guest of honor, and creative with her act. We would definitely recommend Elizabeth to our friends.
Elizabeth did a fantastic job with a singing telegram for my brother's 50th birthday. I was a little hesitant and skeptical as I was booking this from another state. She kept me involved in the process and up-to-date with the event. The song she performed was perfect and it was just the right amount of attention for my brother in his workplace. Our goal was not to embarrass him with inappropriate song/dress, just mark the occasion, which Elizabeth did beautifully!
Response from DC Telegrams:
Thank you, Michelle! It was a pleasure working with you and surprising your brother.
My cousin & I are always pranking each other by Rick Rolling each other. I hired Phil to serenade my cousin by singing Rick Ashley 's Never gonna give you up.. it was so good. Would recommend them most definitely. They had fast responses to my questions. Easy transaction.
Response from DC Telegrams:
Thanks, J.P. It was great working with you. This was a very funny one. Take care!
I wanted to surprise my son who is 3500 miles away at college. DC Telegrams surprised him with a Birthday rendition of one of his favorite songs and made his day special!!! Thank you!!!!
Phil, our performer, was perfect. He entered the room with a lot of energy and surprised my wife perfectly. He has very good guitar and voice skills and got the bar involved with Beatles 'Say its Your Birthday' and 'Oops I did it again'. I highly recommend.
Phil did a great job. He was timely and great to work with! He really added some great flare to our surprise and his Italian accent Happy Birthday flare was a real hit that got all in attendance rolling...
I had a great experience in hiring DC Telegrams to surprise my friend at work with a singing birthday telegram. Booking and organizing were a breeze, and Elizabeth was so accommodating. She even offered to change up the words to a song to make it more personal. I would highly recommend this group!
I decided the day before my sister's birthday to surprise her with a singing telegram rather than the usual flower/gift basket delivery. Booking was so simple - we arranged everything in a couple emails and Elizabeth was very response despite delays on my end. My sister loved her surprise and I loved the picture Elizabeth sent of her smiling face. Definitely worth it!
Just wanted to thank you so much for coming to the party. Your visit made the night, and your voice is beautiful!!!
I wanted to do something special and romantic for my boyfriend to show him how much he meant to me. I didn't want to give him a gift that wouldn't last, I wanted to give him a memory. DC Telegrams came to the place we met, George Mason University, and started playing the song I requested as soon as we were in sight. Not only are Elizabeth and Phil super sweet, they are EXCEPTIONAL musicians and vocalists. The feelings from the songs they sing come shining through and you are left with a magical experience. I cannot get enough of their voices! I definitely recommend DC Telegrams for any occasion, or just if you want to make someone's day better. You can't help but smile and be happy with Elizabeth and Phil!
Response from DC Telegrams:
Thanks, Amy! You are an adorable couple and we are glad we could help make a special memory.
It's hard to put into words how special Elizabeth's performance was - she is a brilliant songwriter with a stunning voice. She went to my boyfriend's office and surprised him when he came back from lunch with the lyrics of one of "our" songs rewritten. The lyrics were so clever and included so many special moments from our three years together. He was laughing and crying throughout the entire performance. She's immensely talented and I can't thank her enough for helping me make his birthday extraordinary.
I can't thank Elizabeth and Phil enough for helping my husband and I have the most memorable 25th anniversary ever. What started out as a singing telegram morphed into a mini concert on the water. I was hoping to surprise my husband to make it a true event to remember and it worked. The stunned look on his face when he realized what was happening is something I'll never forget. His one complaint? Why wasn't it longer? Okay, so next time I need a full concert! Elizabeth and Phil made it flawless. I still tear up sharing the story of walking out on the dock to our boat as "Into the Mystic" began playing. What a magical night!
Response from DC Telegrams:
Thanks, Ann! It was a pleasure to be part of such a special evening. Thank you for choosing us!
"Brava! What a perfect performance. Beautiful. Intimate. Heartfelt. I desperately wanted to give the gift of song to someone special, but I don’t have the vocal chops to pull it off. You do. Your singing was absolutely gorgeous and your presence and graciousness demonstrate that you are, indeed, a consummate professional. Thank you, thank you, thank you for providing a wonderful and meaningful way for me to celebrate a very special birthday with a great friend."
