" Her beautiful velvet voice, sense of humor, instinctive sense of phrasing, and musicianship , combined with total professionalism and a great work ethic, make preforming with Lisa B. a pleasure, and something I'm more than happy to do any time".

It's quite a while since I have left a concert on a high but last night's performance at the Sydney Opera House by Lisa Budin gave me just that. The excellent aspect of her singing-for me - is that Lisa has the same purity and beauty of tone as Karen Carpenter but she does it her way. After all,the particular performance is ' remembering '. In the 1970's I enjoyed attending a concert by Karen and Richard Carpenter in Sydney.
That musical event left a lasting impression on me but I have to say that sitting listening intently to Lisa last night,I was given the same joy.
There was nothing missing ! Congratulations Lisa and also to that wonderful group of musicians.

WOW.....What a concert,I just had to let you know how much we all enjoyed the show yesterday.
It was excellent from start to finish and as for the musicians they were brilliant. Looking around the theater and seeing an audience enjoying themselves bopping,and clapping along to all the songs,all ages,all types,groups of women, young and old lovers, it was just fabulous.
Well Done !!!!!!

Lisa's performance was spectacular. She had the whole package, talent, charisma, elegance and she was close up and personal with her audience, providing a very entertaining evening for us all. Her voice sent chills up my spine as I thought I was listening to Karen Carpenter. I will certainly be going to her next concert.

Just wanted to say that we came to your show on Saturday May 9th 2015,at North Ryde Rsl. It was a truly beautiful and magical night. You have one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. Closing your eyes we could swear we were listening to Karen herself. You sang my favorite song " I Need to be in love " - truly beautiful rendition and it made me cry. I was the guy singng along who you gave the rose to. I gave it to my mum sittng next to me. We bought your 2 cds which we loved . I hope to be able to see you perform again some time soon. I was hoping you would come out so i could tell you in person just how amazing the night was, but a soon as I saw your email address I knew I could contact you that way...
Thanks again for a truly incredibe night of marvellous and magical music .
