Quotes from recent reviews:
“This young trio of performers managed by Bob Blume and Step Forward Entertainment gave me one of the most entertaining nights of streaming that I have watched. These 3 young performers proved their talent and high-octane energy was contagious.” … Suzanna Bowling, Times Square Chronicles
“I truly appreciated the finale that included a re-appearance of all the artists. Kea Chan was particularly strong with “That’s Life,” bringing her own brand of soul music to the stage. After almost six months of not attending a show at a cabaret or nightclub, the recognizable was heartening and the evening was absolutely joyful.” …Marcina Zaccaria, TheaterPizzazz.com
