My husband and I absolutely loved Gilly and the Girl on our Celebrity cruise this past August. I especially loved the rendition of "Me and. Bobby McGee". We looked for them on all activities.
We were introduced to Gilly & the Girl on the Celebrity Eclipse in October. My husband first heard them in the atrium and he was hooked. We tried to get to most of their sets through the rest of the cruise as did the othe 8 in our group. We are in that 55 and over age group and their songs were ones we know and love. We felt like we were hanging out with a bunch of friends enjoying great music. Thank you Mike and Charity for the great music.
The fact that Charity sings like a rock and roll angel would be enough. The fact that Mike is a virtuoso on the guitar would make me happy enough. But that’s not all! They are fun, funny, engaging, with chops that can span the full musical spectrum! So very worth the ticket and the time!
We had the pleasure of having Gilly and the Girl as the entertainment for Celebrity Eclipse - we did 3 cruises in a row and they were our favorite! It has been a long time since we have had talent that good on a cruise!!! They always had a full house and were enjoyed by all. We hope to see them again on our future travels! Wish we lived closer to their home town so we could see them preform when they are in town. If you get a chance to see them you won’t be sorry!
Wife and I enjoyed Gilly & the Girl on a Baltic Cruise so much, that we followed them from one lounge to the next to the point one might consider it stalking. They had great rapport with the audience, had a diverse song selection and her voice... WOW! Gilly & the Girl would elevate any event.
We are definitely “groupies” and the biggest of fans when it comes to “Gilly and the Girl!” We met them on a cruise, and every set they played, we were there! The best all around entertainment on the ship! Any gig booked - we would be there! A definite crowd pleaser!

Without a doubt, Gilly & the Girl are one of the best acts I've ever seen. What really sets them apart is their ability to work any room, regardless of age or background. From intimate dinner parties to one-thousand seat theaters, they make every single song feel like it was tailored just for you. I can't recommend them enough.
Oh and Mike sounds so much like James Taylor, it's almost scary.
Golly and the Girl provide the complete entertainment experience. Whether in a stage concert setting or an intimate club, they are complete professionals. Strong voices mesh in beautiful harmonies, and the listeners are transported. A very approachable nature provides ample opportunity for interaction, and the duo is always willing to take requests. Consummate musicians, Gilly and the Girl always left me wanting more.
My wife I and saw Gilly and the Girl on a Northern European cruise, we absolutely fell in love with them. Her voice is so good, there were several times it actually brought my wife to tears. His guitar playing is excellent and he has many unique arrangements. It actually got to the point where we went to every performance that they had all around the ship. We are planning on driving from North Carolina to the Orlando area to see them again as soon as we can.
