Kevin thank you!! You, Steve and all the band members were such a joy to work with, and you completely set the tone for an absolute fantastic evening. The #1 piece of feedback has been the "the band was amazing!". We so appreciate you being part of the event and I really hope we can make this an annual thing with the Summer Swing!

Absolutely Awesome!! Kevin Gray and 78 West were Fabulous!!

Kevin Gray and the 78West Jazz Quintet were perfect. The show quality was beyond expectations. The band was really tight and Kevin's vocals were spot on. His renditions of both the high energy songs and ballads were exceptional. Kevin is a real showman and his voice along with his interpretations kept the audience locked into each moment. Patron's loved it.
Bob G

78 West and Kevin Gray absolutely soul lifting, fantastic joy! Every single one of them rocked and as an ensemble-pure delight!!!  If one missed this today I'd say get your calendar out and mark the next outing in gold.

We hired award winning performer Kevin Gray for my mother in law’s 90th birthday in Asbury Park. He delivered in a big way and even surpassed our greatest expectations. Nana danced with him, but when he sang “My way” as “Mickey’s way” he brought tears to our eyes. It was emotionally beautiful and joyous. What a wonderful and very memorable performance. Kevin is a great guy also, he was very approachable and he helped elevate our event in more ways then I can explain here. He is a great jazz and Broadway style singer as well as a fantastic entertainer. Thank you so much Kevin Gray!

Just so you know — one of my neighbors who is fighting a losing battle with pancreatic cancer texted me asking if I had any peaceful music to share with her. Timing could not have been better since Kevin had just shared the recording of "Whisper In the Wind" with our choir. I forwarded it to my neighbor. She texted back saying that it was “so gorgeous and soothing” and that she has listened to it numerous times throughout the day. She said it’s helping to keep her focused and positive during an especially tough time. Bet you guys would never have imagined when you recorded that song how it would make a difference in someone’s life.

A truly magical evening!

Kevin performed for my mother and a few of her friends at a 65th birthday luncheon I held for her. We were disappointed we could not throw her the big bash we wanted, given the circumstances we are in with pandemic regulations. However- Kevin added a true WOW factor to this small event! He made everyone feel like they were attending a 5 star show at a black tie event! Those in attendance can not stop talking about it. He is professional, warm, fun, sharply dressed, and most importantly TALENTED! If you are looking for an entertainer who can sing and engage with your guests, hire Kevin, you’ll be as enamored as myself, my mother and all of her friends were.

I hope you're still basking in the afterglow of last night's event.  I know we are. Hats off to you and Cathy my friend.  Amazing night! Well done.

Your video / song / presentation was a BIG HIT with our Mom, Mary Ann ... 
She LOVED it ... Started crying when she watched it the first time with my sister

on Sunday AM ... Still touched by it when I watched it with her Sunday night ... 

You really did a wonderful job ... "THANKS" for delivering such a memorable gift ... 
Mom, 86, called this her 'best Mother's Day." ... Your performance was part of the reason why ... 
Hope our paths cross down the road (and hope we stay in touch)... I have a feeling I / we might

have additional requests down the road ... THANKS again for going above and beyond ...

You and your crew were once again absolutely terrific musical accompaniment for our event. Thank you so much for your generous support for this years "Culinary Affair" to benefit Hunterdon Hospice and Visiting Health and Supportive Services. Having you all there providing such upbeat blends really gave the event a festive splash, certainly adding to our ability to raise nearly $40,000.  We truly value your contribution as we would not be able to have this event every year without the collective commitment of our supporters.
Many thanks,

Thanks so much for being part of our night and providing some great music to entertain and keep the night lively.  It was the perfect touch and we truly appreciate your willingness to join us and make the night so special for us.

Thank you for your support and love.  You singing "Danny Boy" was amazing, and so special. You being there for me was uplifting and encouraging.
Much Love,
Esther and Terry

The veterans had an incredible evening listening to your band perform.  Your group delighted all those in attendance with your highly talented members and unique sound.  Many of the veterans commented on how wonderful it was to have a live musical performance and they reminisced about their younger years and watching big band performances. Thank you again for contributing to our Summer Concert Series and making the event such a success.

Thanks to 78 West!  Since this is my first time helping to spearhead this event, it was my first choice to hear you play.  You guys sound great! As a former radio DJ, I always appreciate good music.
Thanks again,

Thank you for providing such wonderful music for my father's service.  It is very comforting to have a friend carry us through this journey.
Kelly and Bryan

Thank you so much for performing at the Senior Citizen Christmas Luncheon. Everyone really enjoyed your wonderful sound and you certainly brought a lot of joy to all! Thank you for helping to make this celebration and my Eagle Project a success.

Thank you sincerely for singing at my husband John's funeral mass.  It was so kind of you to give up your time and share your gift to sing for us.  It meant a lot to my children and myself. We always felt we were lucky when we attended 5:30 mass and you were singing. Pretending to know your singing schedule I'd sometimes tell John "this Saturday Kevin is singing" so that John would go to 5:30 mass.
Thank you sincerely,

Thank you so much for adding such beauty to my dad's funeral with your wonderful gift of singing. We were all so very touched that you drove to NY on your day off to help celebrate my dad's life. We are very blessed to have such a wonderful friend.  I will never forget your singing of "Amazing Grace".  It's a gift I will always treasure.
Yvette, Neil, Britt & Ryan

Words cannot express how much we appreciate you being there for us.  Your beautiful voice and kind smile helped to make the funeral just perfect.  It really meant a lot to us to have your support.
With much love,
Kerri and Michael

Thank you for your generosity in donating you time to play for the Good News Home Concert.  It was a great performance.  At the Home we're still commenting on your presentation and how the program was very refreshing and spontaneous. I couldn't have been more proud. Hopefully we can arrange a return engagement.

Our thanks for a wonderful evening. I repeat that we appreciated your outreach to our community....Hearing the music and experiencing the passion of you and your musicians was great. No doubt you prompted many memories.
All the best,

Great Show, fabulous evening!!

Great Performance!

We are so grateful to you for ending Bob's service in such a beautiful and fitting way. It meant so much to Kaitlyn and me. Bob would have been so moved by your "Danny Boy" as we all were.  Many Blessing.
