From Marci L. Sahinoglu - Wedding Client
"Beginning with my first interaction with Elaine, I was continually impressed by her warmth and professionalism. But most of all I was absolutely blown away by her talent. Hearing her sing is such a joy - her voice is clear and strong and beautiful. And making beautiful music appears effortless for Elaine. She sounds equally wonderful covering folk ballads as she does performing jazz classics as she did at our wedding. I know that our wedding was a delight due largely in part to the ambience that Elaine helped create. Booking Elaine Dame for my wedding was honestly one of the smartest decisions I made and certainly the best investment. Years from now my husband and I may not remember the food we served or the flowers on the table, but I am sure that the memory of walking down the aisle to Elaine singing "Over the Rainbow" will stay with us. Thank you, Elaine, for making our wedding so beautiful and memorable." July, 2004

"Elaine was a pleasure to work with! My only complaint was that she had to stop! Seriously, the mood she set for our event, the little "At Last" serenade after our ceremony was and will always be unforgettable." September, 2008
Nancy and Ed Segreti - Wedding Clients
"Elaine Dame is fabulous in every way. She is an accomplished vocalist, a great entertainer and also a true business professional. She just simply "gets it." We were thrilled with Elaine and her Quartet and highly recommend them for sophisticated jazz." October, 2009
Kara and Matt Schlagheck - Wedding Clients, Evanston, IL
"My wife and I had the privilege of having Elaine Dame and her Quartet perform on our wedding night. The music, and her voice, truly made the night unforgettable. The talent and professionalism that she brought to our special night was beyond anything we expected. One of the most frequent comments we heard from our guests was, "Who is singing, she is amazing." Her style perfectly fit the intimate reception we held, but it is obvious that Elaine would have no problem on any stage, large or small. In the time leading up to the event, Elaine was up-front, knowledgeable, and thankful. We never pretended to be connoisseurs of music or jazz, so we left most of the evening in her hands. She came through beautifully. I would recommend her services for any occasion. If she can get my family to dance, she can do anything. I can't say enough about her, and I look forward to seeing her perform in the future. Give her a look and you will not be disappointed." July, 2009
