Caron: I want to thank you now, while it is all so fresh in my mind, for the wonderful job you and the band did. The evening was a success in large part because of you. Somehow you managed to handle the disparate ages, cultures, dancing styles, and levels of enthusiasm and meld them all so that everyone had a good time. I mean everyone. I don't know that I've had such a good time myself in a very long time. Even my dad, who told me emphatically the day before the party that his back was hurting and that he would not dance, was out there and wouldn't sit down. My parents were raving about the dancing! I know of no one else who could pull together 3 different generations and have each of them feel like the music was for them. And you made me look like an absolutely brilliant hostess. Thanks for your dedication, professionalism, creativity and planning. I look forward to our next Dale Entertainment event (and I hope some of my friends hire you and invite me in the interim!).

I posted on our list serve a few months ago looking for a band for my father-in-law's birthday party, and wanted to let the readers know that we ended up with a great ensemble through Dale Entertainment. Many neighborhood parents know singer Caron Dale as a wonderful early childhood music specialist. She's also a member of the band. They played a wide range of genres: jazz, swing, Motown, classic rock and got everyone up and dancing. They were able to work within our budget and helped make the party a night to remember.

~ Bonnie R.
Absolutely wonderful! Caron was so easy to work with. She was able to get everyone to dance. I have received so many complements from friends and family.

The Fairfax County Park Authority presents concerts in the parks every summer.  We will present over 200 different artists, ranging from Zydeco to classical, pops to punk, rock to Klezmer. For each new season of concerts, we seek new artists who can provide the quality and diversity that our sophisticated Fairfax County audiences expect. Out with the old, in with the new.

Somehow, Lox & Vodka is always new! This group of talented, personable and professional artists makes Klezmer music sound new every time. For some, bread and salt are staples. For the Park Authority concert series, Lox & Vodka are staples, their music salty and intoxicating.

~ Sousan Frankeberger, Fairfax County Park Authority, Fairfax, VA
It's great that we've already worked together and I know how awesome you and your band are--I've already given my client a glowing recommendation of Lox and Vodka! That hora at Lilly's Bat Mitzvah is, without a doubt, the best hora I've ever experienced!

~ Brynne M
I am so sorry and embarrassed that I didn't meet you and your colleagues last Sunday evening.  However - I wanted to say that I DID hear and enjoy your music and let you know how much I believe that you added to the festive atmosphere we wanted at Nina and Lowell's wedding!  I loved all the music at the bedeken, the ceremony and the cocktail hour - You all were super!! Though we didn't meet - through our phone calls and emails you all did exactly what we wanted and "hit the right notes!” Many thanks!

High praise from the seventh-grade set: Gabe tells me his friends reported to the child who was unable to make it on Saturday that she had missed "a wicked good party." Doesn't get any better than that! I'm sure you know that we all had a great time and you also know that it was because of your musicality and enthusiasm. Thank you for making the party exceed our expectations--we loved every minute of it. Hope your harried holiday season is thoroughly enjoyable--we look forward to crossing paths with you again.

~ Diane, Ed, Gabe & Asher
Thank you for helping to make our party so special.  The music was wonderful (and you managed to play something from all of our favorite genres!), and the dancing was memorable.  You helped make everyone feel welcome and included.  We can't tell you how much we appreciate your spirit and sounds! We look forward to celebrating future simchas with you and Lox & Vodka! Warmly,

~ Karene and Ned S
Thank you so much for making our day so very special for us. Everyone commented on how much fun your group was and what a good time they had.

~ Judy Y
What a wonderful celebration we had!  Leah's Bat Mitzvah was more than we could have ever hoped for, everyone felt a part of things, no matter their religion or age.  So many of my guests have mentioned to me what a warm, inclusive event we had, which is no small feat with 160 people and it's all thanks to you.  

The most unforgettable part of the party for me was when you had our all of our guests form a big circle (which took up the whole room) before you taught us the Israeli dance steps and you told Leah to take a moment to look around and see all her family and friends who had come to celebrate with her.  A number of our guests were moved to tears at that moment.   

Thank you for being so amazingly energetic and helpful beginning with the planning process and throughout the entire event.  From managing 70 kids to personalizing the candle lighting to accommodating all of Leah's special requests, you helped us create truly wonderful memories.

~ Karen M
A very special thanks to you and the band for transforming our event at the Ratner Museum into a very special Bar Mitzvah celebration for David.  Our guests of all ages took delight in the music, your energy/enthusiasm, and successful efforts at getting everyone up and dancing. The kids loved the games, and the adults enjoyed the nostalgic background music. The teaching dance numbers were a lot of fun. And our opening remarks were nicely accented with the band music.

Everything went off flawlessly -- OK with the possible exception of my starting to do the blessings out of order! I am also so appreciative of your performing Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope you Dance." My dancing along with David to this number was unanticipated and a very special way to end the evening.  Thank you and the others for EVERYTHING!

~Ellen G.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for Sunday. You guys were as phenominal as we remember and better, and we so appreciate all you did ~ more than that. I can't express it. It was perfect. Thanks again. It was such a pleasure.

~ Ellen
What a pleasure it was to once again share our simcha with Lox & Vodka.  You made Rebecca and Ian's wedding such a special day for all of us.  We received many compliments about what a warm, joyous wedding it was.  Most of the comments were about the fantastic job you did. I knew we were going to have a difficult crowd to work with (especiallly Table 4), but I also knew you were the one who could get them out of their seats to participate in the celebration.  Thank you again for the wonderful day. 

~ Fondly, Judy & Michael
I just wanted to get back to you with another big THANK YOU! Caron, you and the band helped make our simcha all that we hoped it would be. I can't tell you the number of complements that we received about you and the band. The atmosphere that you created really made it a wonderful and Jewish event, and because of that Evan has a feeling that his Bar Mitzvah was something special. Of course, the opportunity that Evan had to play with the band was a great moment and will be a special memory that I am sure he will always have. Wow, you were all great ! Thank you again. Love,

~ Lloyd and Marcy
Ernie and I wanted you to know how delighted we were with your music, your spirit, and your willingness to handle all scheduled 'events' at Candi and David's wedding reception! We received a large number of compliments from guests who enjoyed the klezmer music and the Israeli dancing...I was amazed how many folks got up to dance!! I believe because you telegraph such a sense of fun and because the music is so rousing that almost no one can resist joining in. Candi asked me to be sure to tell you how thrilled she and David were with the party--they had a blast!! Please pass on our thanks to all the guys in the band and keep us informed of your upcoming concerts!

~ Sincerely, Ann
The most common thing I have heard from people about our wedding is how FABULOUS the band was and more specifically, how much you in particular Caron added to the wedding. So many people said they had never been to a wedding where everyone was up and dancing and having so much fun. You really did an unbelievable job -- "impressed", "grateful", "overwhelmed" don't even begin to sum up how we feel about you and your performance. Thank you SO MUCH for making our wedding such a memorable event for both us and our guests!!!

~ Debbie & Dan

Dear Caron, Thank you for helping make our celebration extra special. Please tell your fellow musicians that every person that we spoke with was extremely pleased with the music. You are a truly talented and a warm person. I am lucky to know you.
