Sam Woolf is an extremely talented artist who delighted a room full of ladies ranging from 6 months to 60 plus yrs including 1- 5 yr. old boy! The acoustic guitar and his folksy calming singing voice completely complimented the baby shower! He surprised us all by playing the late Tom Petty's song "Free Fallin'" which was superb!! Sam has a sweet kind spirit! Thank you Sam Woolf for a truly phenomenal performance!
Peace & hugs,
I hired Sam to play at my husband's 50th birthday party at our home. He was very professional and a perfect fit for my event. I received many compliments from my guests. My only regret is that I did not give him a playlist and he forgot to bring his cds with him.
I can listen to that voice all day long.
Good luck Sam!
Response from Sam Woolf:

Response from Sam Woolf:

Sam was just what we were looking for!!
Response from Sam Woolf:
Sam was great! My guests loved his music, and we spent a lot of time back and forth the week before making sure his set list was the perfect sound for my guests. The audience even had quite a few Sam Woolf fans from his time on American Idol, and he took the time after his set to take photos and meet and greet with them. He also sang The National Anthem for a Tribute to Veterans and First Responders and many guests went out of their way to tell me they loved it! Beautiful voice, very talented and positive young man. I would hire again and definitely recommend.
Talenteded beyond belief also easy going and easy to work with. We really had an amazing welcome party event to kickoff our wedding weekend and Sam was a great addition.
Response from Sam Woolf:
Thanks again for having me, Derek! I had a lot of fun. Congrats!
