What People Are Saying About SimpleGifts Music:

“You folks were amazing!!…’Helpless’ transported me back to the ‘The Last Waltz’. ‘Suite Judy Blue Eyes’ soon followed and the groove was beginning to take on a sum greater than parts thanks to the tightness of the band. The finale of ‘Ohio’ took me out of body with its relevance and soul. It literally brought me to tears. To hear the band cover these three songs with such a masterful interpretation was just another blessed addition to the good fortune and pleasure that live music has brought me over all these years. Thanks for a wonderful evening of music!!” – Mike C.
