    I am the band chairperson of Stockton Singles Inc.I hire the Crystal Image band every 3rd Friday of each month and we enjoy their music. Our club has the most people present than any other Fridays of the month. Many times we have 100 or more quests and dancers or just plain listening to their music.

    Crystal Image - that says it all. I have experienced the Band multiple times. They are great musicians but not that alone. They can feel what the guests like. They are masters on their instruments and also have great voices. You can feel with John that his mentor was Willie Nelson. It is no problem for them to get the people dancing and staying entertained a full evening. We enjoyed them at our Stammtisch El Dorado, at the Muenster Ranch in Ione twice, at my husband's birthday party and it is crazy to say - but I cannot wait for my next big birthday to get them again. But we are a large group - so the chances are big. We wish them the best. Moelli de Boer, Camino CA
