Thank you so much for visiting the Newport Public Library
on Wednesday and for providing such a wonderful music program.
The children and families had a great time and loved the singing, dancing and clapping.
Your show is terrific and I will definitely plan on calling you again in the future.

I'm writing to say the biggest THANK YOU I can for helping to make DreamNight
a success this year.  The staff from Hasbro was so impressed with the event as a whole,
and the smiles on the faces of the children that were enjoying the night were priceless!
 And that's due in large part to your overwhelming support for this event.
 I can't thank you enough for participating and I know I speak for Hasbro as well.
 Here's to another fabulous year and a truly wonderful event. Thank you!

I was searching for someone to come play the fiddle and to teach some step dancing
for my daughter's 5th birthday party. Mary King responded with such a genuine interest
in coming to create a great time for my daughter and her friends that I knew right away
we were in for a treat! Mary had a way about her that made me feel at ease working with her,
and we found her to be the perfect mix of professional and personal. She was very gracious
and easy going--and she brought a smile with her music that gave our birthday girl
a fiddle/dance party she will never forget! :) She comes with our highest recommendation!
