He brought 110% to the show, engaging the audience not only with his music, but with his conversation, before, during and after. His heartfelt lyrics resonated deeply with our audience.

Looking forward to the day we are able to host him again."

May, 2014 - "Bruce was great. His heart-felt music resonated - lyrically, musically and poetically. We had a smaller turn-out, but Bruce has the confident stage presence as if he were in front of any audience anywhere. Bruce was very organized with every aspect of his tour, and was a great person to hang with. He actually stayed at our place two nights, and am pleased to add him to my list of musician-friends."
September, 2013 - "We thoroughly enjoyed Bruce Mandel both as a person and as a performer. He was warm and friendly to his small audience and won our hearts with his dead-on characterization of my sister's sense of humor as "reptilian." When he spoke of sitting on a mountain top watching a meteor shower and making wishes, we urged him to write a song about it. Bruce was a great house guest, extroverted and sociable, and we highly recommend him."
March, 2013 - "From the moment he arrived, Bruce Mandel was warm and personable, and clearly a true professional. It was great to get to know him as a person and a performer. His songs are beautifully written about everyday life, and he shares deeply and authentically from his heart. He really connects with an audience and loves what he does, and was a considerate, organized household and concert guest. We have heard nothing but enthusiastically positive comments from those who attended, and want him back!"
June, 2012 - "Bruce is genuinely one of the nicest people I have ever met, his lyrics & music echo his lovely spirit & life experiences, each song a story. My audience enjoyed his personality, treated them as individuals & as a group. He was awesome to communicate with and was a great help initiating my series - he was my first CIYH. There is not one negative thing I can say. Bruce is great - highly recommend!"
