Audience & Performers' Comments:
of the singers that I spoke to went as far as to call it
Magical. While I was making the rounds after the show the
big question was 'When can we do this again!' If you have
the chance to look through the interview footage you can
see just how special everyone thought the night was.
"Last night was an incredible evening! It will defininately
go down in the
Dog & Pony Sound history books as the most Amazing
show to date.
The energy backstage was incredible! Between giving some
pep-talks, interviewing the singers, helping avert last
crisis's, and even helping one of our singers remember how
to breath again
after she hyperventelated during her interview, this minx
had his hands
full. Making sure people were ready to go was only part
of the fun and I
loved every minute of it. I would do it again in an instant.
made a lot of people feel very special and very happy
last night. You earned some serious good karma! You gave
people an experience that they will carry with them all
of thier lives which is a gift whose value is beyond imagination.
Thank you for giving the little stars a stage to shine
on. It was an honor to be a part of that."
~ Andrew Lee (backstage manager)
"What an event! A step above karaoke! Bravo to the
dog and pony!"
~ Jim Wade
just wanted to say how impressed I was with how smoothly
things went last night. You'd think you had done this
dozens of times. Everything was seamless. Everyone sounded
great. You started on time and ended when you said you
would. You are both truly amazing.
a more general note and as someone new to the scene here
in Ottawa, it's obvious that you truly enjoy what you
do and bring incredible passion, joy and dedication to
your work. You're not just pushing buttons, you're helping
to build a community--and that makes all the difference.
It was a great pleasure to participate. Thanks also for
remembering, without my even reminding you (which I should
have), that my song was pitched two steps down. How many
such potential disasters did you avert last night because
of your amazing attention to detail?"
echo all the thank yous to Chris and Danni!!
There's some awesome talent out there and Dog and Pony
make sure we sound our best. Thanks guys!!
And to all the other "pals": great job!!"
~ Pete Pierre
I say that from an audience point of view the production
absolutely seamless! ... The whole show worked like a
for all the hard work that must have gone into that production.You
should know it was worth every minute. Thanks for a great
"I wanted to thank you for the invitation and opportunity
to be on the
Barrymore's stage. ...Marcel and I went in before Babylon's
Sunday and he mentioned all the big names that have been
in applause sound effect here) Wonderful work and organization.
I know you put A LOT of work into last night's success.
From little details like Power Point, to scheduling the
appropritate mood and contacting each and everyone of
us... I can imagine what it involved and all my respect
goes to you. (fade applause)
" You guys did a SUPER SUPER job ...Thanks for a great
time ...the women I was sitting beside thought that you
both were very entertaining..."
really was an amazing night, and an amazing show - everyone
was at their best, whether it be from a whole lot of practice
or just the increased energy that came from being up on
that stage (which really was as cool as I thought it would
be) - it was a night that all the singers could be proud
.... Last night really was amazing, and the culmination
not only of a whole lot of hard work on your part (for
which we'll always be immensely grateful), but of your
whole way of doing things. Of treating us "pals"
as actual pals - being friends, sharing not only your
mic's, but your hearts, and getting us to do the same
Thanks for that, and for letting me become part of the
Neal Bouffard (Dog & Pony Sound, DJ & teammate)
like to add my eternal gratitude for going above and beyond
in putting together an event that made all of us to feel
like stars. Make that "more like stars than you normally
make us feel".
of us are still hoarse, some still shaky, and probably
not a few of us are nursing hangovers, but I bet we're
some of the cheeriest f*ckers alive today."
Last night's show was amazing. Where else but Barrymore's
could you see a handful of Lounge Acts, and just about everything
in between. From AC/DC straight to Neil Diamond, it worked
I can't wait to see the documentary once it's finished the
editting process, and of course there must be 100's of pictures
waiting to be posted on some giant internet photo album.
Ah, the lasting memories.
Chris and Danni thanks for doing the thing you do so $%#&ing
well! Without you, we would have never had our 15 minutes
of fame, 3&1/2 minutes at a time."
~ Adam Goldberg (Vic Viscount)
again for letting me participate in the showcase. Everyone
had a great time, including ME! I just can't thank you
enough for giving me that opportunity....You guys are
