Love Loren Wolfe!!!

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!!

He walks the line like a real pro

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.

We all had a wonderful evening

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.

What Fun!

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.

Excellent - You will not be disappointed!

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!

Touching & entertaining performance

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!

Good ol' fashioned fun at the fair!

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.

Absolutely Amazing!

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 sang, inspired & shared his book with our 1st graders

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!

Man of Many Talents

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

"Man in Black" entertains seniors with disabilities

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 is TOP NOTCH!

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.

Sounds even better than Johnny Cash

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 Wolfe

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 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.
