The Marion Drexler Band
   - What People Say


Marion and her band have appeared on Rogers TV York Region, FM 102.7 WhiStle Radio Stouffville Ontario, FM 100.9 Canoe Radio Haliburton Ontario and TheHAZEFM Mississauga Ontario.

Markham Village Music Festival:

"I cannot say enough good things about this band... they sure know how to please a crowd! They are total professionals who go about the business of delivering great music well-suited to their talents without the 'navel-gazing' so much in evidence amongst other musical groups. Even their patter is light and brief. I will certainly book them again and I think they'd provide great entertainment at any event."
- Ardy Reid, entertainment director

"Thanks guys. You made my job easy for your set."
- Sound technician, RP Dynamics

(Year 2 for our band): "You guys are the best! My gosh, there you are in the pouring rain, singing your little hearts out for a handful of people! I know you like to perform and I also know you were doing your best to honour your commitment, but I gotta tell you, this was above and beyond any reasonable expectation. No one, especially MVMF, would have been upset if you had bailed. Most bands did....They weren't as innovative as you at protecting themselves from the elements so it made the lengths you went to mean just that much more. Thanks for going the extra mile....My estimation of you has gone to the stars! Thanks to you... for being somewhat of a 'mainstay' to our Village... there's good reason for that!"
- Ardy Reid, entertainment coordinator
