“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.
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.
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.
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 that amazing band???” is what I heard time and again.
“The Bettys added the perfect touch to our “Roaring 20’s” corporate event at the Ritz Carlton. 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.
“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 ON
“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 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.
