         Hello Mr. Bohannon:

 

       We would all like to thank you for the fantastic musical performances at the Holiday Party! The instruments and the voices came together magnificently during all the great dance hits that were played by the band! The music was truly enjoyed by so many, it was wonderful to see a packed dance floor into the late night! We were thrilled to have you be a part of this evening!

 

      We, of course, would especially like to thank you for the wonderful rendition of   "We are the World" that was played especially for our "chief's performance"...It turned out great!, and was a memorable part of the evening for us. Thanks for helping to make it special.

 

      Wishing you and the band many enjoyable performances to come.

 

      Happy Holidays,

      Juliessa, Eileen, and Tony

      We hired Klaxton Brown to play our corporate Christmas party. I had at least five people tell me that they were the best band we've ever had. They got everyone on the dance floor...of all ages. I especially loved the enthusiasm of the lead singer, who would periodically jump out on the dance floor and show off his James Brown-esque moves. I would not hesitate to recommend them for a wedding, annivesary or company party.

  • I am so excited that I had the privilege of hearing your band Sat. night at Tobacco Co! You are AWESOME!!! Why haven't I heard of you    before now? I've told everyone I can think of about you ... few have already had the pleasure of hearing  you and others are looking forward to the possibility. Why don't you have any gigs lined up for the holidays??? I'm dying to dance to your AMAZING talent this holiday season!

    You are a very talented and classy band and I look forward to following you in the months ahead ... You are Richmond's   secret talent' that I want to help spread the word about ... It's fantastic that I don't have to travel to the beach or another city to  hear Motown and the oldies we grew up with ... we need music like this in the Capital City!!!

Brother Bohannon:

The music for the NAACP Gala was superior. The music was charged, danceable, enjoyable and well performed. The instrumentalist and vocals were very professional. Some left early because there were so many other things going on. Virginia Union Homecoming dance was down stairs, other reception across the street at the Hilton, etc; but those of us who stayed really enjoyed the musical performance especially the James Brown Act. superb! I would recommend the Klaxton Brown band to anyone.
Thanks for an enjoyable night.

Many blessings to you...

Dr. J. Rayfield Vines, State President

Again, thanks for help making our banquet a special occassion. If I ever need a band I know where to look, and I will suggest Klaxton Brown to others as well. Keep doing what you do!

You guys are awesome. We had our fraternity formal in Williamsburg two weekends ago and you were the best band we ever booked for an event. The band was the life of the party and made the experience for the group. Thanks again for a great time! I hope we can book you again soon.

Klaxton Brown,

I am still in awe over your performance at my wedding reception on August 23, 2008!!! The live music and the vocals were exceptional! Overflowing champagne, great food, and the best wedding cake I've ever experienced were the dynamics of our reception. Yet, "Klaxton Brown" stole the show!

They really added that smooth, classy touch, which left all of my guest in a state of "shock and awe"! Yes, everyone wanted to know, "What's the name of that band?” and “How can I get them to be live entertainment for me?" Not to mention tuxedos and formal evening gowns were truly the "icing on the cake". This band is certainly professional... on time, dressed to impress, and knows how to rock the house!!!

This was truly a most enjoyable and memorable day for my husband and I!

Klaxton Brown Thank You for Making our Special Day Elegant and Unforgettable!!!

I finally got to hear your group perform at RoChello's on Sat. Mar. 15. You grooves were smooth and your beats were tight!!! My companion and I were sitting right up front with yall. My conpanion was so moved by some of your "old school" sounds that she burst in to tears. Thanks for taking these two "oldheads" back. Keep playing those smooth sounds!!!!

Al Gibbs is one of my co-workers,and I'd heard so much about this band that I just had to check them out. WOW! what a smooth sounding band. I fell in love with Klaxton Brown. I'm still trying to get you guys in Bruswick county to play at my club. Keep up the good sounds.


Name Dr. Gerald James      

 I live in Atlanta, GA. I was visiting relatives in Richmond last Friday 1/25/08 and was asked to go to dinner at Family Secrets because you can eat good food and enjoy some live music at the same time. (In today's society, it's almost impossible to get both) I must admit that I was appeased. The sound of the harmonic vocals were heavenly awesome. From my understanding, the young lady (Donna) that performed with you was once with you before. I say ... KEEP HER! Your rendition of Mustang Sally is really hip because of the rap. That adds spice but most pleasingly to me was the song "A Change Gon Come"
Most people our age (40-60)can relate to music like that. Keep up the good work. I'll be looking Klaxton Brown up in the near future ... if you're willing to travel to Georgia. Stay positive and focused and you shall progress.


Name Betty J. Hawkins     

 

I had just lost my mother when I first heard you and your music allowed me to just sit and inhale the aroma of your music. Taking me in time, I was able to sing because I knew the songs and lord, lord, that horn section just blew me away. Thank you for allowing me to hear you play and helping me through a trying time in my life. I was able to escape through your music of what was to come in my life.


Name Secret   

Lavert Turnage is my ex co-worker's husband and she has been telling me how awesome you guys and gal are. I will do my best to bring along some of my girl and guy friends to FS to hear you play. By the way, I love catagoric music you play. Even though I have not heard you play yet, I know for some reason or another I won't be disappointed.


Name Berthell   

 

Are you ever in the Maryland, DC Metropolitan area? Would love to hear you again. What a wonderful repertoire and classy presentation. Vocals and instruments were great. Complete sound. The sister was Awesome on the vocals!!

Name Felicia      

 

Bo AKA Klaxton, Your band is off the hook and definitely the smoothest sound in town. I have heard your band on a number of occassions and I want to say that the young lady that sings Sweet Thing really took me back in time. Thank you for introducing Richmond to Klaxton Brown and your new singer Monique.

Name TJ    

 


Bohannon,

I must say that the sound of Klaxton Brown is totally awesome! But I must also say that your female vocalist, Donna is off the chain. What an enhancement. I've heard you play at Sandy's and I enjoyed it so much that I along with some other friends is in the audience just about every Saturday you guys performed there. I'm from the old school and your music takes me back there. Therefore, I WANNA SEE HER AGAIN MAN!


Name Denya     

 

I was invited to FS for good food and good music back in Feb. I did not expect to fall in love with such a beautiful sound of harmonic voices. I heard one of my favorite songs, "A Change Gon Come" The beautiful lady that sung that song can sing to me anytime. I'll be back!


Name Frankie     

 

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!


Name Danita     

 

Just wanted to say to Mr.Bohannon,what a wonderful job u guys are doing,and that we need this in the city of Richmond.Thanks for keeping it "GROWN AND SEXY",keep up the good work,can't wait to party with you all again.


Name Alice      

 

I enjoyed the styles of Klaxton Brown on Friday @ Family Secrets. I went there for dinner and not knowing that a band would be performing, I sat back and enjoyed your smooth sounds. Looking forward to seeing you all next Friday and many more! PEACE, LOVE & HAPPINESS!!!!!!!!!!!


Name Terri      

 

This is one of the best bands I have heard in a while. Everyone is so talented. I look forward to Friday's when I can see all of you at Family Secrets and the food is great there too. Keep up the good work and I look forward to getting the CD when it is made.

I came to see you guys at Family Secrets. When are you going to put out your own CD? I'll be the first one in line to buy it. Keep up the good work. I'm going to bring my girl friends this week. I'll introduce myself when I get there. I love Klaxton Brown!
