“On the night of Friday, November 13, 2015, the James M. Hill Theatre was certainly the place to be in Miramichi, NB as “The Bettys” gave a passionate and nostalgic-laden performance in front of a packed house. With their spirited personalities and mischievous sense of fun, they won the hearts of the audience as evidenced by their hearty cheers and demand for an encore. These incredible female voices were backed by four musicians who proved adept at shuffling through the various genres of music. Our night with ” The Bettys” was everything we imagined it to be and their high-energy and smartly balanced performance made the concert one to be remembered. Thank you “Bettys” for such a fabulous and fun night of entertainment!”

“I watched as The Bettys & their decade spanning catalogue of songs turned a 500 plus soft seat theatre on its ear. From the opening moment until their final farewell, these ladies had the audience in the palm of their hands, twisting & turning through the decades with as good a band behind them as you’ll see anywhere. Individually great. Collectively magical. Their final half hour is as good a 30 minutes as you’ll see in show business.”               – Paddy Quinn 95.9 sun fm East Coast Countdown (Syndicated Radio Countdown)

“I recently hired The Bettys for my 1920s themed wedding. We were already sold on them when we heard them play at a little bar in Toronto, but nothing could prepare my husband and I for how amazing they were at our wedding. 

They truly made our wedding come alive. Dressed beautifully in 20s inspired wardrobes and playing the perfect song list that was a mix of modern, 20s and soul – our guests were literally dancing from the first song until the last. The ladies even got on the dance floor to teach the guests a few moves! 
Many guests said they were the best band they had ever seen! We agree!
Lisette was friendly and always available when I had questions leading up to the wedding – she was wonderful to work with and I would hire The Bettys again in a minute!”

I had no clue The Bettys existed 6 months ago!  Every year, we hold a fundraising gala called For The Love of Chocolate in Chicago.  It’s a big party, over 1000 guests with over-the-top pastries, chocolate, theater and entertainment.  One thing that makes our gala stand out from other snoozer black tie affairs is our entertainment.  We always try and bring the best music and bands to the night.  This year, our theme was 1920’s Great Gatsby (but with a modern twist), so I knew I had to find just the right band to fit the bill.The Bettys July 13 poster

So….I found The Betty’s online, and I immediately loved what I saw.  I was communicating with Lisette, who is an absolute gem, quick to respond and I just immediately got a sense of comfort with her. Unfortunately, the group was booked locally in Toronto that night  So, we started looking elsewhere, throughout Chicago, California, New York, but I simply couldn’t find anything like The Bettys.  I contacted Lisette again and after some very kind rearranging on her part, they rescheduled to come to Chicago for our gala.  Again, Lisette and the team were an absolute pleasure and once we started talking about the details, I was completely comfortable knowing she knew exactly the feel and tone we were going for.    We too, wanted to start out with a nice ‘lounge’ feel and then move up to a dance party atmosphere.

Okay, now that I said all that, let me tell you why I really love The Betty’s. They are UNIQUE!  You won’t find anything like them anyplace else.  They are versatile and can span a huge genre (20’s, 60’s, 80’s!) without sounding like the typical wedding cover band that belts out a bad version of Brown Eyed Girl.  The crowd was eating them up all night.  They’re memorable.  They’re engaging, but again, not in a tacky way I’ve seen so many times.  They flow with the event and the crowd.  Our guests danced and partied all night with them.  I can’t tell you how many people came up to me in the following days and talked about The Bettys.  In fact, we rarely invite bands to return a second time to our gala (we like to keep it fresh!), but we will be inviting them to return next year to entertain our group.  If you are looking for something a little different, but crowd-pleasing with a little sass and major pop, then you’ve found your band.

“We had the superb honour of having The Betty’s play our inaugural New Years Eve dinner in our dining room this past year.  They were professional to deal with right from the first contact through to the moment they packed up their gear!  Not knowing what to really expect on our first ‘big’ night, we were so blown away by the talent of this group.  Everyone in the band is there to ensure a great time for all the guests…They began to play and within a couple of minutes, the dance floor was full!  I have received so many compliments from guests that were here that night about The Betty’s.  “Where did you find t

The costumes, the songs, the music, the lovely ladies…..It was a magical night and I can’t wait to have them play again.  People are already asking….”Who is t
hat amazing band???” is what I heard time and again.

Not only was Lisette wonderful to work with, the entire group was amazingly talented, professional and extremely popular with our guests. We absolutely recommend the Bettys!”-Melissa Hare, Gore Mutual Toronto

“We asked The Bettys to perform our corporate party and I couldn’t be happier with their performance! We had turned an old warehouse space in a 1920’s speak easy, but it didn’t truly feel authentic until The Bettys hit the stage. The girls looked the part and sounded amazing, and the band was awesome! I especially loved how they incorporated some modern music into and still sounded like the belonged in an old gin joint from the 20’s. Not to mention they we’re so easy to work with. Lisette was extremely patient with me and responded to ALLL my emails and phone calls promptly, ad had really good ideas for the event, they went even above and beyond to find a couple of dancers to bring along. I’m already brainstorming ideas for events where we can book them again! They were such  a delight. ” –Emily Friar, Global sale division, Amway Co.

“The Betty’s performed at our wedding, in Buffalo, New York and they were unbelievable! Not only did they fit in with our 1920’s theme but they learnt two specific songs to be performed during our ceremony which they executed flawlessly. The whole group was professional, friendly and flexible with all of our crazy ideas! I would highly recommend them for any performance— anywhere! They are true stars!” -Camilla Maxwell, Buffalo NY
“The Bettys were fabulous, adding a great energy, style, and fun to our Great Gatsby fundraiser! It wouldn’t have been the success it was without them, and our guests raved about them afterwards. They have loads of talent – beautiful voices, great instrumentals, and a wonderful music selection – and they’re creative and fun with their interpretation. They even played some wonderful ’20s renditions of ’80s tunes that had all of our guests up dancing! We would recommend them highly. ” – David Crammer. Guelph ON

“Pass along to The Bettys that I loved how they took their lovely unique style to incorporate an Aerosmith song and gave it a 20s flare!  Brilliant!  They made me want to dance to their songbird voices all night!  Engaging and oh so charming.  Loved them.  Made the night a huge success!”-Claire Hutchensen, Guelph ONcropped-the-bettys-may-2014.jpg

“The Betty’s were fabulous! They transported a backyard party back to the rolling 20s and made you feel as if you were straight out of The Great Gatsby novel. They were an intimate part of the party’s atmosphere….. Lovely voices, great instrumentals and a wonderful music selection!”            -Cary Gernish, Greenville MI

 “The Bettys are truly a talented, fun and highly energetic group. Our guests love their performance. The musicians are professional, easy to work with and very accommodating. I would highly recommend the Bettys.” -Stephanie Pham, Oakville ON

“The Bettys are wonderful, both vocally and visually harmonies are tight, the choreography delights” -Sandy MacKay, MD “Jazz for the People” London Ontario

“The Betty’s – What’s better than a trio of seductive songstresses in tight harmonies and dresses? The Betty’s truly entertain with their fantastic program and arrangements of big band, mo town and modern music. Their show is a must see”. -Martha Kolls MD of “Homemade Jam” Forest ON.BR contract 2
