Dee was early to our party and even helped with last minute rushing around. She is very talented and everyone enjoyed her music. I have had two people already ask me for her contact information. We will always call Dee first whenever we are having an event. She is very talented and a very nice person. A pleasure!
Response from Dee Fleming, vocalist, guitarist, pianist:
Dear Nancy, Thanks for the compliments, I really enjoyed performing for your holiday party! I hope my "jazz arrangements" of holiday songs helped make your party festive, and your kindness, feeding me after the gig, and taking the time to chat with me after performing was greatly appreciated. The Steinway grand I performed on was superb! I look forward to performing for you and your guests again. Dee
Dee is a skilled musician who provided lovely background music for our dinner party in Missoula. She worked to prepare a song list that included my favorites from the Beatles and so much more. Our guests truly enjoyed the music and for us, it was a lovely part of the overall dinner gathering.
Dee was very impressive on the piano. She was very accommodating to the music selections we wanted and she was very professional. I would highly recommend Dee for ANY event!
We decided on a Roaring 20s theme for our annual associate holiday event and knew that live music was critical to the event’s success. We put out a request for musicians who could match this theme and Dee was extremely responsive to all of our inquires, and very flexible with our agenda changes. She is very professional and her music was a perfect match for our needs. Charisma Jazz Duo kept our associates and their guests entertained during the welcome reception and dinner. We’ve heard great comments from our team and are very happy that we selected Dee for the event.
Everyone commented how she made the party. Even the men joined in on the carols and the kids had a blast.
I scheduled in a very short amount of time and Dee was able to make everything work. She played a song at a slower step perfectly. I am very happy with the service that she provided. She is personable and professional.
Response from Dee Fleming, vocalist, guitarist, pianist:
Thank you for the great review! I have the equipment, repertoire (over 800 pop, jazz, rock, classical, and folk songs in my repertoire), experience and expertise to provide a quality instrumental and/or vocal performance and can customize requested songs to your needs in a short amount of time, if requested. This is what I LOVE to do!
