"The people of Conners Mobile Home Park declare that we can hardly contain ourselves, over the musical program that Phil Klein recently presented to us. This is entertainment in its finest form: the talent, the music that this man has had everybody singing and tapping their feet. Here is a person who can and does make everyone get into the swing of things, as he plays music from every era for every age.",
BERNADETTE PROZZO, ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR
"I don't remember the last time that we had such an entertaining evening. Your music and knowledge of the keyboard impressed us very much, as did your being able to play all of the requests"
BETTY CRICHTON, SOCIAL DIRECTOR, WINTER PARADISE
"You captivated our audience with your musicianship! I have never seen such enthusiasm from our residents!"
MARGARET F. KLEINER, SOCIAL DIRECTOR, LARGO MOBILE HOME PARK
"I would like to thank you on behalf of the Friends of the Largo Library and the attending audience for one "SUPER" program presented here. I have never heard so overwhelming an enthusiasm for any other friends presentation in the past years. We all enjoyed your entertainment tremendously"
JACK McGRAIL, COMMUNITY RELATIONS, LARGO LIBRARY"
"Phil, we surely want to thank you so very, very much for your evening of entertainment. It was just great. We had so many compliments on our program and so many, many people have spoken to me, wanting to know if we could have you back again. Most everyone felt it was the best program we have ever had here. Isn't that great?"
CATHY SANTA, ASSISTANT, CITY OF LARGO RECREATION DEPARTMENT
From one of many librarians:
"The Oneida Public Library dedicated this February to recapturing the 1920's in art, literature and music. NO ONE recreated the era like you. From 1920-1930 you highlighted all the familiar and loved songs from each year and your audience was with you every step of the way. Several members of the audience remarked later that 'it was one of the most wonderful shows they had ever seen' and 'could we please have him back again and again?' As Director of the Oneida Library, I couldn't agree more!"
CAROLYN GERAKOPOULOS, ONEIDA PUBLIC LIBRARY, ONEIDA, N.Y.
From a Syracuse Cultural Resources Council Program Director:
"Phil Klein's talents are multi-faceted. He is a superb pianist, entertainer and storyteller. With his free-flowing and spontaneous style, he is one of the funniest and most engaging storytellers I've ever encountered"
FROM THE SKANEATELES PRESS (by EDITOR ELLEN LEAHY:)
"Klein is an original hipster, a player and a storyteller. He is a man who has lived and breathed music as a composer, songwriter and arranger. He can mix with any age, but is certainly at home with people who grew up with what he calls OURMUSIC. He played everything from "Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze" to "Satin Doll" and in between he had the audience laughing."
From a very recent engagement:
"Phil Klein is not only a very talented musician, he is the complete entertainer. Phil establishes an immediate rapport with people, engaging them individually as well as collectively. Audiences stay involved because of his very personable delivery, plus his store of knowledge and a repertoire that includes over 2,000 songs."
