We had a corporate event following a conference in Salt Lake City, UT. Holly was very responsive leading up to our event and blew the crowd away with her talent. If we're ever in the area again for a conference and need live entertainment, Holly will definitely be our go-to! Thank you, Holly!
Holly performed at our Christmas Social where there were 100 guests spanning in age from 22 to 90. Everyone loved her! She was even able to get some of our guests to perform some fun Christmas songs with her! She was easy to work with before the event and always responded to my questions. Holly has a beautifully unique voice and is just as talented on the guitar. Thank you, Holly!!
Holly was loved by all. Her style and originality was engaging. Perfect for our client party.
Holy was great! I would highly recommend her for an event.
Holly performed at our outdoor private event and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. She communicated clearly leading up to the event and performed as promised. Our guests loved it!
I have never done anything like this before and was a little leary of the website and the whole transaction. I came to find out that Holly is awesome! She was willing and able to do whatever it took to put on a great performance. She even went to the extent to memorize the lyrics to two new songs, not to mention how to play them. She was willing to meet us at a park and just walk up and start playing. It was awesome! I will be using her in the future and telling friends all about her. Her voice was great, she made no shortcuts, and was confident. Thank you Holly
Holly did a great job when she came to perform for us! She has a beautiful voice, and a great presence. I would definitely recommend her to others.
My non-profit was hosting a fundraiser and hoping to have a local artist perform. Holly was fantastic! What a beautiful voice, and great to work with.
