memorable performance

“Beautiful singing telegram! I asked Carolyn to sing her own version of my partner’s favourite song for his birthday. She was open, professional, and such a delight. It was a sweet surprise for my partner and a fun, memorable performance. I would highly recommend Carolyn’s singing for celebrations or intimate gatherings.”

really amazing

“Working with you was fantastic and I knew from our first conversation that it would be a great fit! Thanks for all of your help and guidance with the technical aspects. The band was incredible and I have heard nonstop how rad you guys were…and rightfully so. Thanks for making this event really amazing.”

faultless execution

“Having recently had our wedding in the Niagara-on-the-Lake Region, we have hired the Carolyn T Band to perform at our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Not only was working with her before the date easy and enjoyable, but the day of was a great success: All our guests were amazed at the quality of the performance (including Carolyn’s voice, which is very much like Aretha Franklin’s) and were asking us where we had found the band. They created a very lively, fun atmosphere for guests to just shed their inhibitions and dance the night away on the stage. We would certainly recommend them to anyone else; overall, faultless execution with outstanding live performance!”

powerhouse voice

“My husband Matthew and I were recently married on August 29th 2015. We had decided from the start of our wedding planning that we wanted a singer to sing our first dance; the song we chose was I believe in you and me by Whitney Houston. We searched the internet and came across Carolyn Thompson and were instantly blown away by her beautiful voice. I contacted her and asked if she would do us the honour to sing our first dance; thankfully she was available. Our wedding day came quickly, Carolyn brought her powerhouse voice and totally knocked the song out of the ball park! Our guests were in awe and talked about what an extraordinary voice she has for the entire evening. Thank you Carolyn for making our first dance as husband and wife so very special.That is a memory my husband and I will always hold dear to our hearts.

absolutely lovable

“Carolyn came to our home to perform for my father in law’s 80th birthday bash. We knew from the start that Carolyn and her band would provide the ultimate best in sound and performance. Not only is Carolyn’s voice powerfully superb, but she is absolutely lovable and gorgeous to watch, and it is impossible NOT to enjoy being in her presence. She created an atmosphere that was comfortable for all – from the 80 year olds to the 5 year olds. Carolyn can do it all and I wouldn’t hesitate to refer her for any gig – night club, wedding, intimate party… Carolyn can create the perfect experience.

thoroughly impressed

“Thanks Carolyn for performing at our recent corporate event. Your musicality and force of personality really warmed things up. It is always a pleasure to see someone who so truly loves what they do in action. I also was thoroughly impressed by the musicianship of your backing band. We look forward to working with you at future events, a once again, a job well done.

engaging

“Thank you Carolyn for taking part in our 3rd annual “Woman’s Worth” event. (proceeds donated to Breast Cancer Research). The event is surrounded by so much emotion throughout the day and as our keynote speaker you really did an amazing job with connecting and engaging our audience, adding humor and fun to the event. We received a great deal of positive feedback for your presentation and we hope we have the opportunity in being entertained by you again.

poise

“I had the priveledge of meeting Carolyn at “A Woman’s Worth” Seminar. She was the key note speaker and she captured everyones attention from the beginning. Her poise and grace and confidence draws you in, her talent and beauty keeps you there. She had people eager to volunteer for her vocal exercises, and she had us giggling in our seats. And when she sang she had us wanting more. After her speech, I had the privelege to sit beside Carolyn, and I have found a kindred spirit in her. She is truly one of those charasmatic people in life that you feel blessed to have met. Thank you Carolyn xo”

brilliant

“I was thrilled to hear that Carolyn was the key note speaker for the Woman’s Worth Seminar.  From the moment I met Carolyn, I knew we were kindred spirits!  She is passionate about life and has a bigger than life presence.  With her friendly and welcoming presence, she connects with her audience with ease and flow. Her dynamic energy draws people to her and her key note presentation was brilliant.  When she asked for volunteers, so many hands went up for the opportunity to work with her.  To our joy and amazement she shared with us gems and fun exercises to create a powerful presence, how to think on our feet, project clearly while reaching our own audience with our voice and with confidence.  She had the volunteers say the fun phrase from “My Fair Lady” through “The rain in spain falls mainly on the plane.”  This simple and powerful fun exercise showed us how we can speak clearly, pronouncing our words and reach a full room.  I am still singing the song and remembering the day’s event with Carolyn! Everyone left with a take away about confidence and tapping into our own genius!  I would recommend Carolyn to anyone who wants to grow themselves and their business.

can’t stop dancing

“Wow, what an amazing voice, what a great band, what a fun night …. Carolyn T and her 7-piece band rocked our event all night long. They brought energy to the room right from the beginning and got all 350 gala attendees dancing all night long – they are fun; their music is fantastic …. You just can’t stop dancing!  I would definitely hire them again to play at any event that I wanted to be a success.  Carolyn is organized, knows how to pick the right musicians, and to work within a budget. Thank you so much Carolyn T for making our Gala so fabulous- you are an incredible WOMAN & your band ROCKED!

invaluable performance techniques

“Carolyn T is a powerful woman and an inspiring performer. Her vibrant,passionate presence is truly something not only to behold, but from which to learn. During our coaching session, she competently addressed my questions with relevant information and advice garnered from years of experience in the music industry. However, she also went beyond what I knew to ask, showing me invaluable performance techniques that I would not otherwise have learned. Carolyn’s Monday night jam at Harlem provides incredible opportunities to meet other musicians, to practice one’s own performance skills and, not least, to listen to fantastic music. I feel very fortunate to know Carolyn and I highly recommend her as a performer and as a coach.
