It was so gooddddddddddd

Jim Jordan

Thank you for bringing the Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars to Armstrong Hall. It was one of the most extraordinary and entertaining musical events I have ever seen! Even without Dr. John, it was over-the-top New Orleans music at its best!


February 7, 2011

Voice of the Wetlands concert Saturday night was one of the best concerts I've been to in 40+ years. I almost didn't make it up there, the snow was so bad on the road from Pueblo, but I'm so glad I did. I brought home 3 new cds and am still dancing!!! The All Stars are all that and More!!

Amy, thanks again for your love and gerosity to me and my listeners. The VOW show was wonderful and a great cause to be involved in. Look forward to working with you and the crew in other endeavors here and in Salida!!
Thanks for working with me and keep me in the loop Lady, Doc

Bob Campbell

Amy, that was the best concert I've ever been to, and I've seen the Rolling Stones. Anders Osborne is absolutely the best Cajun musician who's ever come out of Sweden.

Renee Bartlett

February 6, 2011

I just wanted to say that the Voice of the Wetlands All-Star show was absolutely AWESOME!! They literally tore it up and rocked the joint. You have 6 of the best musicians to come out of Louisiana since Louis Armstrong and Professor Longhair, among many, many, many others, and that combo of passion, experience and raw talent just makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. You cannot help but stand up and dance and clap your hands and get lost in the music.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Amy and George for bringing us this awesome show!! What would we do without you both??

Much love,


Alvin and Gloria

January 13, 2011

Thanks for bringing Tommy Castro back to Colorado. We're looking forward to another high energy show from Tommy and his band. They always rock the place, we can't wait.

Christa Thompson

January 1, 2011

We love all the shows you put on. We love the shows at the Crystola, what a great venue. If I had to choose a favorite artist, I guess it would be Ana Popovic. However, all the shows are just great. You are true professionals and know how to put a show together. Some people I would like to see in the future would be, J.P. Soars, Trampled Under Foot, and Joe Bonamassa.

George & Sue Small

January 1, 2011

Kudos for your outstanding effort in keeping music alive in the Pikes Peak area. Let the good times continue to roll. We were especially pleased to see HAPA at BAC. We just returned for Maui and made a contact that they return to Colorado. We'll see you in the New Year.

Teresa Lynne Band was Awesome! Teresa is soooo personable also, and she sends her greetings your way. Thanks so much for your efforts and for keeping us updated on the fabulous music. The evening watching Teresa and her band, each which is awesome in their own right, was pleasant, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable.

Take care,



October 3, 2010

hi Amy...You all are so cool and so important in the music scene roundabout that I'd just like to thank you for all the good energy, dance ops and finger popping priorities right here in Rocky Mtn High Country. More power to you all and save me a dance...


Pam Palmer

The MUSIC at Blues Under The Bridge was AWESOME! Bigger space for dance floor needed. More porta potties, but it WAS a TREMENDOUS succes! Wonderful people, amazing and kind and friendly artists...WOW! The best one since the first, which hadn't been matched yet! YEY!

Judy Kleve

July 22, 2010

What a great to spend a Saturday afternoon listening to great music!! Blues Under the Bridge was, in my opinion, FANTASTIC. My favorite part of Blues Under the Bridge? Meeting Charlie Musslewhite & his band-AWESOME.
Can't wait to see the line up for next year!!

Josh Osterhoudt

July 22, 2010

Great job! Love the music, the venue, and the food! Thanks for all of your hard work.

Paul August

July 22, 2010

I had a great time at Blues under the bridge. Food selection was great, Candye Kayne was wonderful as always. I wanted to spend more money there but ran out too soon. Maybe you could get an ATM machine for next year. The venue is wonderful. See you next year.
PS did you find a Subaru key and fob?

Hi Amy

You are truly a pleasure to work with. Thanks for all of your hard work to keep the blues alive. Have a good day!


Martha Rosenau

Dear Amy,

You never cease to amaze me with who you bring to town. I just learned of Janiva’s music on Sirius radio while back east in a rental car over Memorial Day vacation.

She is INCREDIBLE! Did you know she was a foster kid herself, who now devotes her life to helping foster children?

Thank you, thank you for improving our community one concert at a time.

With deep respect for what you do,

Fantastic, off the charts show by Tommy Castro at Crystola last Sunday night. What an unbelievably great band. The whole joint was rocking from the 1st song until the last!! went to Boulder Outlook the next night and it paled in comparison.

Priscilla Kropuenske

March 3, 2010

We have been to several shows George & Amy put on and they have all been GREAT!!! Love the Crystola. We plan on many more in the future. Thanks a bunch for doing this.

I haven't had the pleasure of seeing Kelly Hunt but I have several CD's and she is an exciting blues entertainer. It would great to have her here in Colo Springs.

Thanks for the opportunity to suggest

It would be nice if Debbie Davies were to perform at Stargazers.

Amy, Just wanted to thank you one more time for your part in putting Saturday night together. It's not often a band gets to work with real pros like you and George. We appreciate the way you have helped us. Larry, Dennis, Matt, Rusty, & Carlos

Cathy Whittington

February 8, 2010

Glad I was able to be at Buddy's show Saturday at the Crystola. You can be sure if Amy is promoting a show, it's gonna be the place to be.

Jurgen Bergeron

January 30, 2010

George and Amy,
Thank you so much for another fantastic show, John Hammond is a legend and seems to have played with just about everyone. The names he was rattling off was a who's who in the blues world. Hanging around the back hall and shaking Johns hand was a highlight of the evening as was my buddy Derrick putting Johns harmonicas on stage, I did not know he was working the show. Anyway thanks for keeping the blues live always a great time.

Steve Gould

January 24, 2010

Cedric and Malcom, the Two Man Wrecking Crew put on a hell of a show. Those boys are the real deal. Hope they come back someday.

Steve Eastburn

January 22, 2010

KJ Braithwaite

January 18, 2010

Thanks so much Amy for you and George spending Saturday night watching us play at Cucaru. We were blessed by you being there! Hope we'll see you around again soon.
Thanks for all you do for music.


January 3, 2010

Amy, the Laurie Bell and Nick Moss show was amazing last night. You guys always book great gigs! And I don't know if you had anything to do w/ Jason Riccci playing at McCabe's early in 2008 but please try and get him back here!! Thank you!!


January 2, 2010

Keep up the good work, Amy. I really enjoyed seeing Samuel James. I just love meeting an up and coming artist in a small setting.
I also liked getting a confirmation email with details about food and drink available, as well as confirming time and location.


December 29, 2009

Gift certs - YEAH!!!! Thanks!

December 13, 2009

We went to the Samuel James show and it was all awesome! Thank you so much for all you are doing to bring great blues music to this area. I moved here four years ago from a long time spent living in the Twin Cities, and have been amazed to see people I saw all the time in Minneapolis being booked here (Jimmy Thackery, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Smoking Joe Kubek, Tab Benoit, Coco Tayler – God rest her -, etc.) The Crystola Roadhouse is always a fave. Any possibilities of Corey Stevens ever making it here? We love, love, love Venue 515 and will support that place to make sure it stays open and thriving with live music! We loved Big Jim Adams and are anxious to get out and hear him.

Anyway, thanks again, Amy for you and George’s hard work and for givin a crap about good blues music happenin here! Happy Holidays! -- Lindy.


December 9, 2009

Just workin between me and my sis in law but it's so perfect for ma. Thanx for going to all the trouble. I hope others find the GIFT CERTIFICATES as perfect a gift as I do!

Hello, I enjoyed the Matt Wilson Quartet last night. They were original and entertaining. This was my first time to attend and look forward to many more such enjoyable Friday nights.

One constructive suggestion: could you strongly encourage patrons getting child-care? Not sure how you can handle this tactfully, but babies are things, just not at Jazz concerts.

thank you for all you're doing for the community~

We bought tickets to the Roberta Gamborini show as a Father's Day gift. What a privilege to hear these four spectacular musicians creating it right before our eyes! This concert was something really special. Thank you!

Juanita Martin

June 8, 2009

The George Whitesell/Jill Watkins show at Stargazer's on June 6, 2009, was the highest caliber and most entertaining performance that my husband and I have enjoyed for a long, long time. The venue was perfect for this level of professionalism, excellent performers, and an unrivaled band, perfectly scripted and choreographed. If you haven't yet enjoyed a performance by this increasingly popular group, you are denying yourself a great evening.

Craig Crowder

May 25, 2009

MEADOWGRASS was a blast!! Thank you for the great musical weekend!

Hello to all ! Greetings From Poland. very Good Page !


March 5, 2009

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU for bringing live music, particularly live blues, to the Pikes Peak region. We have enjoyed several shows including Tommy Castro (twice) and Tab Benoit. Unfortunately we have a previous engagement and will not be able to attend the Smokin Joe concert. Keep up the good work.

John Bennett

March 3, 2009

You guys are awesome! Just got to meet you recently at Tab Benoit's Show at Stargazers (What a great transformation that place has gone through)! Also saw you up at the roadhouse at Tommy Castro's show! And we'll see you shortly at Smokin' Joes' Show!!
Keep up the great work, we really do appreciate what you've been doing!!!


February 6, 2009

Once again a terrific show. Glad to have been a part of grand opening of our new venue (Stargazers) in town.
Tab Benoit is not only a great musician but a powerful, thoughtful man. We enjoyed hearing from him as well as hearing his blues. Keep bringing the great music. Thanks

Jeff "BRADY" Glicken

Met you today (Tuesday, 1/20/09) at the west end post office. I am a local songwriter/singer/musician and I'm interested in what you do. Please email me so we can benefit each other with your insight, knowledge and talents of the local (and far-reaching) music scene. It was a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to future communication(s) with you.

The Tab Benoit show was excellent. Leon Medica stills plays an outstanding bass and Tab put on another incredible performance. It appeared that the girls liked him even more.

Thanks to Amy for bringing all this great blues to us. Crystola is the perfect venue, too.
Dan Todd's review of the Blues Harmonica Blowout was outstanding - thanks Dan!

It was great to be on the bill with some of my harp heroes ; Kim Wilson, Magic Dick and Mark Hummel. Thanks for having me.

Larry Cutter

October 19, 2008

The Mark Hummel Harmonica Blowout was fantastic! What a rare opportunity to see Mark Hummel, Magic Dick and Kim Wilson in the same show. The Crystola Roadhoues was a great venue for the show. Please keep the great concert lineups coming!

Roberta Cooper

October 19, 2008

I thought that the show with Kim Wilson was great..everyone one superb..and don't forget the prime rib, they do such a great job there..

Steve G.

October 18, 2008

Hi Amy,

What a smokin show last night!! I hope you thought it was successful because it sure worked for me. The food was good, the guy sharing our table turned out to be really cool, the joint was fine and we got to see some of the finest harp players this country has to offer. Al played with such intensity I don't know how the reeds didn't blow out. He's a local star to watch. Loved the harps but that rhythm section really made the show complete by constantly holding the groove. What a show, thanks for bringing in such fine talent to our little town.


Ed Millner

October 11, 2008

Hello Amy,
I just ordered 2 VIP tickets to the Oct 16 Mark Hummel's Harmonica Blowout at the Crystola Roadhouse, Woodland Park show on your website. Hope the order came through. I'll pick up the tix at will-call as your site instructed.

Also, thanks for putting some sample audio on your website. I really enjoyed that and it helped encourage me to order the tix.

Wow! What a blast! On Friday the 26th I had the pleasure of doing a half hour opener at the Crystola Bar & Grill for Ronnie Baker Brooks and his band. The crowd was awesome, very encouraging and complimentary. I'd like to send out a big "Thanks!" to Amy and George Whitesell of "A Music Company" for the opportunity.
The best part was having stage side seats to see Ronnie Baker Brooks and his band. Man, those cats can wail! The crowd went nuts and we all had a great time. The Crystola is a great place to see a show. I highly recomend it to everyone. Seating is limited but the dance floor is nice and big. Get there early for a great dinner or reserve a table if you can stay seated during a show like that.
The next show features Magic Dick from the J Giles Band, the guy that blew out Whammer Jammer on the blues harp.............

Thanks for the great customer service in processing my ticket order. It's so rare to get a personal, human response . . . much less one that's so proactive in seeking to provide top rate service. Thanks, and keep up the good work. (Hats-off as well for bringing a little harmonica heaven to Colorado!)

Hi Amy,

We had a great time at the Ronnie Baker Brooks show! It was our first time at the Crystola and we were pleasantly surprised at what a nice place it is for a blues concert. Most of all, we appreciated the upgrade to VIP. Thanks for taking care of us!!

Deb & Walt


September 28, 2008

9/26/08 Ronnie Baker Brooks was awesome. The VIP package was a great deal. If you have not seen him and you love the blues, you are truly missing something.

Amy and George are awesome folk and are always pleasant to deal with. They work hard to bring excellent talent to the region and keep those of us that enjoy live music updated about upcoming events.

This year's Blues Under the Bridge was the best day of music my wife and I have ever experienced in Co Springs. You should be commended for your excellent job in helping to pull this off!! From the 1st act to the last, there was serious talent and passion on stage. And our regional bands all made us proud, very proud.

April 17, 2008

Hello George & Amy,

This is just a quick note to say "Thank you" for the great show on the 10th at Jimbo's Take 2. It was fantastic and definitely one for the memory books.
Bob & Al were "on" all night and the quality of sound and the song
selection were A1!
Of course the intimate setting and hearing Bob reminisce is always a
special treat.
Hearing Bob play Jimbo's new steel body guitar was like topping off a
perfect meal with a perfect desert!
Thanks again for all of your work and I'm already looking forward to the
next time Bob & Al perform together.

Best Regards,

I can't believe it. I hate it. And I'm so sorry to hear it.. that Sean Costello is no longer with us. Lydia & I had a chance to meet him and be amazed (her once again; myself for the first time!) at his awesome talent at the Belvedere in Canon City just recently. I am so!! appreciative that I got such a (who knew then..) meaningful memento that night from him, his personalized autographed cd, with an encouraging comment about my own bass playing. To Sean's Family & Other Fans and Friends, We share the Loss. Stephany & Lydia

Jerry St.James

I attended my second "Ladies Sing the Blues" performance with 3 friends from Denver and Chicago. I knew what to expect but my frineds all said the quality and length of the performance was greater than any performance they had seen in big cities. I have promised to let them know when "Ladies Sing the Blues" returns.

Not only is it "picture perfect" on the cover, but also the music is the intended sound of the season. Wrapping Christmas gifts with this cd providing the appropriate ambience served to greatly enhance my holiday spirit and evoked very pleasant memories of Christmases past. If you buy nothing else this year, add this wonderful cd to your collection.

Gabrielle Jenko
