"Carlene Thissen entertained our guests royally. We had a holiday Open House for many friends from the Naples area and we were all enchanted by Carlene's lovely voice, her ability to interact with the guests, and her calm and restful demeanor. The atmosphere was festive and the music was to be background but came to the foreground when guests became quite to listen and admire. Some danced, some broke into song and some just enjoyed. Bravo Carlene!"   Kathleen H.  

"Carlene and Richard went well beyond our expectations performing at our recent party of 70 guests. When we booked them they first asked to visit the venue in advance so they could best be prepared for the event. They asked what specific music we'd like to hear so they would be sure to perform it....This extra effort and customization put the party atmosphere over the top. They are top notch. I'd highly recommend The Eclectic Duo of and Richard and plan to use them again." Franklin C.  

"It was a great pleasure and tremendous privilege to appear with wonderful singer/songwriter Carlene Thissen on our concert “Cello and Friends.” Carlene brought a whole new dimension of fun, excitement, and her own brand of upbeat musicality to the evening. The entire audience and all of us who performed with Carlene are enthusiastic about her songs and beautiful singing."   Carlene "Cello" Bennett

"We had Carlene play with our Irish Rock band at Fitzgerald's St. Patrick's Day Party. She did a great job playing guitar, key boards and singing some great old Irish favorites. We would hire her again!"  Mike P.
