QUOTES / RECOMMENDATIONS
FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP LIBRARY (Dec. 2020) -virtual presentation
The Levins were a hit at our library (I booked the Dickens show) because their fun show combines original music with a clever presentation featuring visuals that help clarify their lyrics and added another layer of humor. It was different from anything we’ve offered, especially virtually, and we received great feedback. I’m looking forward to bringing them back in the future, whether in-person or virtually again! - K.S., Programming Librarian, Franklin Twp. Library

"What a pleasure it was to host you for your performance at our library It was a lovely treat for library patrons to be
able to sit and enjoy your talent as the sweet sounds of your voices and instruments filled the evening air. Looking around at the faces of the audience members, many of whom were nodding their heads and tapping their toes (not to mention singing along), it was evident that everyone washaving a great time.
I was so impressed by your versatility and range, and by the creativityand wit of your songs. The original compositions you played for us were wonderful. You're both so gifted! And apart from your obvious talent, you're just as positive and inspiring with your life-affirming messages. Your laid-back, warm and engaging interaction with the audience in between songs added just the right touch of friendly folksiness to your performance. Thanks again for a thoroughly enjoyable evening!"
Wishing you much continued success,
