When Lacy (Michelle) sang "The Rose", there wasn't a peep of noise in the place, not even from the church mouse! Bette Midler would be proud! The evening ended with the Gospel Boys joining Caviar & Lace on the last song, "We'll Meet Again!'. From the response of the audience, they can't wait!” –Jim Noble, President, AOTS Men’s Club

"Caviar and Lace brought a touch of elegance to our Seniors Expansion Grand Opening. Their music was eloquent and the Senior audience was very attentive and enjoyed their show. The music flowed gently and was a great touch to start the event. It allowed people to come and calmly sit down and it definitely grasped their attention. The pair was friendly and engaging to anyone that wanted to speak with them after the show. They are also very quick to respond when you have an inquiry, which is always a bonus. A great job by Caviar & Lace. I would definitely hire them again!" -Meagan Sarnowski, Adult and Senior Community Services, Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre
