Loren was fantastic. This was a small backyard family anniversary party and he did a great job providing Cash, Nelson and Presley music. He was prompt and professional, giving us a few more tunes even after the time was up. Everyone enjoyed his casual, low key presence and we would definitely use his services again.
My family and I recently had a surprise 70th party for my mom. My mom is a HUGE Willie Nelson fan and LOVES to listen to music and dance so when I found Loren online I was so excited!!! He called me the next day and we scheduled a date and time. Loren was in contact with me numerous times prior the event. Making sure that he had my song list, confirming the location and time so the event went exactly as planned. When he arrived we had him enter and sing to my mom with a cappella. He was AMAZING!!!!!!!!! She was so surprised and had a great time dancing and listening to him perform! He was a class act and I would HIGHLY recommend. His voice is great, personality even better. 5 stars all the way!!
I hired Loren for a coworker's retirement party held at Cuzzy's. Loren showed up early to set up and he was fully prepared to perform at the time I requested. Many people commented on how well he sang when he impersonated Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Elvis. I provided Loren some details about our honored guest and he wove it into his performance with an incredibly personal touch. Loren is a class act and I definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to hire an entertainer for their event.
We had Loren for my husband's 50th BD party on the boat, Lake Minnetonka. This was my very first time to host a big party all by myself on the boat. I'm not even originally from the U.S. and was very nervous about hosting this event.
The party was super successful! The credit goes to Loren's fun performance, his professional attitude, and friendly personality. Everyone- from a 4 year old kid to 73 year old Grandpa- enjoyed his music. He knew exactly what he was supposed to do before, during, and after the performance much better that I did. His warm and fun personality entertained our guests. I strongly recommend Loren to work with!
Loren performed at the 75th birthday party for one of the ladies at the “Golden Girls Home” as Johnny Cash in July. We had a group of about 30 people and everyone loved the performance and enjoyed singing along. We will definitely call on him again.
Loren was everything we expected and more. He was a great sport in doing what we wanted. He was a very pleasant person and lots of fun to work with. He conducted himself in a very professional manner. My family had nothing but good things to say about his performance. I would recommend him for your next event.
Loved the music played by Loren Wolfe.
Hosted a Western themed party, hired Loren to play. Everyone in the room loved him and many sang along to the great songs he sang. Many got up and danced in the aisles.
Thanks Loren I am now going to plan a back to the 50's oldies party. Look forward to future parties with you.
Loren entertained a group of 21 of whom 8 were early stage Alzheimer's patients. The clarity of his voice made everyone respond with huge smiles and total recollections of the lyrics of our past! We are looking forward to another performance, this time focused on Elvis Presley.
Our tour company booked Loren Wolfe to entertain our groups of travelers on our Sweetheart Mystery Tours. He promptly contacted me to set up the dates of our events. He was very personable, flexible, and willing to work his schedule into ours. He was happy to play any type of music that we requested for our entertainment. Everyone loved him as Johnny Cash, Willie, and Elvis. Loren focused on many love songs for our "sweethearts" and Valentine's Day. We really enjoyed singing along to some of the oldies. A highlight for many was to be able to delight in some polka and waltz time, too! Our groups of mostly senior citizen travelers thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of Loren and his varied talents. Thanks for everything, Loren!
As Elvis, Loren rocked it at my mom's 70th birthday party! He was thoroughly engaging and captivating for a multicultural and multi-age audience. His voice and musical talent made me believe that Elvis was truly in the room serenading my mother. What a tremendous entertainer!
Loren was also very easy to work with, both at the event and leading up to the event. He sent sample sounds and answered all questions with professionalism and ease. I would recommend Loren Wolfe to anyone needing a really talented musician for their events.
Loren is not only super talented but also a pleasure to be around. Please, do not hesitate to contact Loren for your event. He will make your event memorable and special. Thank you, Loren! We will be repeat costumers.
Loren was fantastic! He preformed Johnny Cash songs at my uncle's surprise 50th. Loren had the whole party involved with his wonderful performance. Some of us sang along while others clapped and tapped their feet. He was engaging and thoughtful with the whole room of people. If you like Johnny Cash hits, Loren is a must to have at your next celebration!
Loren was a fantastic surprise to our Adult Day Program. He brought variety and was very personable. He got everyone singing and enjoying his impersonations. a week later he called and we moved our schedule around so he could entertain us again. We didn't want his performance to end and welcome him back ANYTIME!!
Loren Wolfe was wonderful to work with. He contacted me promptly after I submitted my inquiry. He listened to what I envisioned for my sister's 40th birthday party, and guided me through some different options for what he could bring to the party as "Elvis." I thought his pricing was more than fair, so I booked the gig!
Then a wrench was thrown into our plan - a band was booked at the venue we were planning to use. Loren was flexible and said he could still come and serenade the birthday girl when the band was on a break. He arrived early to get a lay of the land, and ended up speaking to the band and playing his Elvis set with them in front of the whole bar! It was so cool - of both Loren and the band! It really worked out wonderfully. We would've been delighted with an intimate serenade, but the collaboration with Elvis and the band was super fun.
Thanks again, Loren!
Loren did a fabulous job entertaining our elderly participants! Everyone loved him from the first song to the very last; he even took requests from the crowd! He has been a breeze to work with and has a huge heart for entertaining. I would absolutely recommend him for any crowd!
What a great performance by Loren. He engaged our gathering of 32 friends from the start of his performance to the end. He was most gracious and had everyone singing, dancing and clapping along.
If you want a great performer without going broke give Loren a call
what a wonderful experience!!
....said my youngest brother at my parents 50th wedding anniversary. As a fellow musician, he could recognize what could easily be the "gig from hell".
Picture a Great Hall in a campground in rural Minnesota. group of nearly seventy folks spanning in age from 90 to infancy. People meandering around, in and out of the hall chatting, catching up. Then through the door a stranger in black appears, walking steadily, purposefully to the guests of honor and says "Hello. I'm Johnny Cash".
The beginning of an evening that will be remembered by many for years to come. Loren Wolfe is by far the most versatile entertainer I have seen. His repertoire, just for one evening included: Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, Kenny Rogers, Roger Miller, Neil Diamond, random requests and even the theme song from Sesame Street on the fly! Loren had people singing along and dancing in the isle without overpowering the event. He even appeared to be enjoying himself interacting with people. It was truly amazing.
So if you happen to be looking for a versatile entertainer who is flexible, knowledgeable and can play to the crowd, hire Loren Wolfe for your next event. He's a real pro.
A sincere thank you for the wonderful, surprise addition of Loren Wolfe to our 50th wedding anniversary party. He and his wife were instrumental in making our party a memorable event. He is a seasoned entertainer who plays and sings with confidence and ease. A wonderful night to remember..........Thanks, Loren
We had a wonderful time enjoying your music and visiting with you after....We are all looking forward to the next time you head down this way...he is a wonderful talent, very entertaining. Our residents thought he did a marvelous job. He is just as good with a few people or a lot of people, he still does a fabulous job... Our residents got to stroll down memory lane for a while and they enjoyed that... If you get a chance go see Loren, you will definitely have a good time!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Loren performed at a family-friendly event celebrating nature. His song selection fit right in with our theme, and his lyrics couldn't help but make our guests smile. Loren handled last minute changes with ease, and was a joy to work with.
We invited Loren Wolfe to perform on our son's second birthday party. He has a very pleasant personality and we all enjoyed his songs very much. Wish it had lasted longer.
Loren came to my elementary school in Chandler, Arizona to do a program about imagination for our 4th grade students. In the program he explained to the students the process of writing a book and how important imagination is. In addition to reading part of his book, "Sam's Big Adventure", he also played his guitar and sang some of his most fun kid songs. The students absolutely loved Loren, his book, his songs and his program. He had everyone engaged from beginning to end (and there were 150 4th graders) which was very impressive! Students and teachers commented on how Loren was the best author that's ever been to our school. The teachers who said this have been teaching for 25 years! Loren is hands down the best and we can't wait to have him back next time he's in Arizona!!
Mr. Wolfe is a charming entertainer with lots of warmth. He was the star of the party and made the event. Mr. Wofle not only shared his amazing song list but his wealth of knowledge on the songs an stories that accompany them. He shows up on time and played for us long after his time expired as an extra treat to the guests. He made an unbelievable impress on every one in attendance. A real class act professional all the way. Thanks Mr. Wolfe thank very much.
Had Loren provide the music for my 70th birthday. He is really good at mixing in and visiting with all ages. Even the children, 8, 10 and 14, loved the music. He is versatile, playing a good range of music, and good at imitating voice and other attributes of the artists selected. He is a professional in all respects and I am so thankful we were able to include him in a memorable evening.
We hired Lauren for mom's 83rd birthday. She loved having a concert just for her and all of the other folks in memory care were having a great time too. Loren is an excellent entertainer and singer. I can't say enough good things about him. Mom asked if he could come back every month! So we are asking him back to sing Christmas songs. Hopefully he is not too busy. Thanks Loren for such a wonderful and fun time.
Our mom turned 80 so we held a small dinner party at a local restaurant and went back to my parent’s clubhouse for cake and ice cream. Loren was a complete surprise for my mom who is struggling with Alzheimer’s. Mom was always a Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson fan, and Loren did not disappoint. His impersonation of Johnny and Willie are both “spot on” right down to his singing voice and costumes. He is a fantastic guitar player as well. Willie Nelson’s songs require some serious finger playing, and Loren plays like a pro. He also knows how to “read a crowd”. We had provided a list of preferred songs which he performed, but then he added in a game playing short bits of other country songs to see if we could tell who performed the song. It was a lot of fun, people were singing and clapping along. And lastly, I would like to add that I live in the State of Washington and the party was held in Minnesota. I arranged the entire evening with Loren via emails, and he was very prompt and professional in responding as well as offering suggestions, etc. All fourteen people who attended give Loren a 5-Star review, and we all would highly recommend him for any type of performance. We all had a blast!
Loren Wolfe is a delight! His talent and wide range of music are sure to please crowds of all ages and at such a reasonable price. We were privileged to have Loren entertain our members during our outdoor picnic for two consecutive summers and would recommend him to everyone!
We had a lot of fun with Loren!! Loved the characters & costumes!!
Loren performed his Country Christmas today at our Open House. He did a wonderful job and we are hoping to have him come back again.
Loren Wolfe performed at our Senior Center this September. The seniors absolutely loved him! He played music that they related too. They sang a long with and tapped their toes. He has the special natural ability to connect with them and get them invovled. They have requested several times to have him back. Thank you Loren for making them feel "special".
Loren entertained our group of 55+/Seniors at an outdoor picnic. He was talented, warm and engaging.
A delight and enjoyed by all.
We hired Loren to perform at a graduation party for a young man with special needs who loves the "Man in Black". It was a wonderful surprise for the graduate who was amazed that "Johnny Cash" came to his party! Everyone was touched by the connection Loren made with the graduate as he had him singing along to every song! People are still talking about was a great experience it was and how enjoyable the music was too!
I hired Loren Wolfe to be the mainstage entertainment for the Blue Earth County Fair Senior day this year... and what a huge hit he was! He did his "Johnny Cash" performance and "Willie Nelson" even made an appearance too. The crowd loved him, his stories of meeting "NED" and beating cancer, and of course his amazing talent for singing and playing the guitar. He kept the crowd engaged and singing and tapping their feet along even on a hot July day outdoors! Loren has always been professional, timely, curteous, and of course very entertaining. I would highly reccommend Loren for any private party, outdoor concert, county fair, etc... Once you meet Loren, you'll never forget him. He's truly an inspirational, talented person.
Loren was absolutely amazing! We have already booked another show and can't wait to make him a regular here! He was sooo much fun and interactive with everyone. We aren't big dancers but as soon as he got started we were up dancing! We are still talking about his performance over a week later. He was on time to set up. We are still laughing and sharing stories over a week later about what a good time we had. He is one of the best we have ever met!
Loren is very engaging and has a positive and powerful message to share about creativity. He showed the kids how to write a book in simple terms and encourages them to be creative. His music is extremely fun for them. He engages the kids and gets them up and moving. The kids especially liked the song on opposites and enjoyed trying to figure out all the opposites. Kids were smiling, laughing, and having fun while learning an important message about being creative.
Loren did such a great job at our private event. He was good at reading the crowd and was flexible with our schedule. We didn't need to worry about anything-- he just played and everyone had a wonderful time. Some even bought his CD! Great Johnny Cash tribute!
The gifts God blessed Loren with are a blessing to so many others. His song about NED brings hope. I know he would bring a smile to Willie Nelson's face, great job on Willie, and he does Johnny Cash like no other. Loren has a way of lifting spirits and entertaining in such a natural way. Loren's voice, music and ability to entertain are much enjoyed and appreciated. Micki
Approximately 40 of MRCI's adult day care clients enjoyed the "Man in Black" program. Besides playing Johnny Cash favorites, he did great impersonations of Tennessee Ernie Ford, Willie Nelson, and others. An enjoyable hour of fun and great music! Great stories and sing-a-long!
Loren Wolfe has visited my classroom for several years. Each year is no different... The first and second graders absolutely love him! They enjoy his silly songs and think his book, Sam's Big Adventure, is great. Loren is not only wonderful with kids, he is also a caring guy that shares a special message.
We have had Loren come out the last two years and our Kindergarten children just love him. He gets them excited about becoming authors and using their imagination. His songs & book are great!
We enjoy Loren so very much. You can count on him. He is a man of integrity. He does a great show - so much fun. I hope he will do a show for us again in 2012. I feel like he is my friend. Blessings on his work. Mary
I had Loren come and audition before my large event. He was happy to come and do a mini performance so I felt comfortable having him perform. He was very flexiable, brought his own equipment, and the audience loved his performance. I would recommend him for anyone who is looking for a quality entertainer for a great price. Best of all he is a good person!
Loren is a wonderful performer. I have been booking entertainers for years and i am always impressed with the energy and dynamism that loren brings to his show. Loren has both great vocal and guitar playing skills. Loren's enthusiasm and excitement are infectous. Loren rocks.
Loren was gracious enough to play guitar accompaniment on a CD that I was recording. He was knowledgable, prepared and above all....so talented. I have witnessed Loren's perfomances many times in church and elsewhere and he just has wonderful stage presence and a terrific repoire with an audience. You can't help but smile when Loren is entertaining. You can't lose with Loren!
Entertainment for all ages! Guitar player, singer, author, songwriter, storyteller, impersonator, and educator. My "Man In Black" show is a first person impersonation of Johnny Cash. Dozens of his songs along with true stories of the colorful man that he was!
I have just recently added a Willie Nelson and Elvis Presley impersonation to my show.
Country, rock, jazz, gospel, blues, hits from the 40', 50's, 60's, and 70's. Variety entertainment for any occasion, and any age group. I am comfortable in any setting and any size group! Private parties, senior centers, schools, corporate events, and special occasions. I have performed for crowds of 8 or 800!
I have written a children's book, called, "Sam's Big Adventure." It is a tale of a little white rat who escapes from his cage and becomes an explorer in the pet shop. My "Imagination" program, encourages students to use their imaginations. I have written many children's songs that are included in the "Imagination" program. This program is designed for students K-6th grade. One of my children's songs, "I've Never Seen These Things," has been released in a new cd, and has been illustrated into a coloring book. Both my reading book and coloring book/cd are available for sale.
