Please pass on to your band members the Crescendo! board’s sincere appreciation for their professionalism and showmanship. Thanks again for the marvelous jazz history concert your group presented for us Nov. 6.

The Queen City Jazz Band gives a great performance that not only entertains, but gives people a deeper understanding of the roots of jazz.  They are exceptional and I look forward to hearing them again and again!Duncan Miller, Pastor Evergreen Christian Church 7/12
"When the Queen City Jazz Band (with Wende Harston) plays for a worship service the energy of Joy fills the hearts of all present."

"Many thanks to you and your super QCJB -- you guys certainly lived up to your long-standing reputation as masters of New Orleans Jazz and Blues and providers of great entertainment, perfect for our family fun and fundraising event.

Ron and I both want to thank all of you for the perfect start to our evening and magical celebration.  Everyone there enjoyed your music so much and they continue to tell us what a great beginning you all were to a wonderful evening.  I do not know if you saw others not part of our party dancing as they listened to your performance.   It was outstanding and we are so happy that you agreed to play for us.

I wanted to thank you, Hank, and QCJB for a great performance.  It was well received and I got a lot of very positive feedback.  Thank you so much for your role in making the conference memorable for our many guests.

The Arc "Gets Jazzed" Anthology of Jazz II a Success!
It may have been cold and damp outside, but inside the music was hot! Nearly 300 people gathered together last Thursday evening to celebrate 50 years of The Arc. Dez Rubano & Friends warmed up the crowd with some pre-concert music in the lobby. Queen City Jazz Band kicked off the concert with their New Orleans-style jazz and immediately had people smiling and tapping their feet.

Stephanie Lubken Music Teacher Heritage Elementary School
The Queen City Band was fantastic! What a fun, authentic experience for children of all ages. The music was wonderful and included a wide variety of songs. The interaction the band had with the kids was not only instructional, but entertaining, too. All of the members of the group are very talented and seemed to enjoy working with children. They were all very down to earth and you could tell that they really enjoy what they do.

Lev Ropes, Artistic Director, West Side Live! Presents
The QCJB is always a delight to have in our concert series. They present a variety of fine jazz along with information about composers, eras, and performers that adds even more to our audiences' listening pleasure. Great fun, lively, instrumental and vocal music that fills our house. We love 'em.

Pam Geddes, First Church of Divine Science, Denver

You guys and Wendy did it again!!   I’ve gotten great audience responses from the concert Monday.  People really enjoyed it.  According to our ticket count we had 355 folks in the audience.  Not bad for a little town.
