Peter and Marlene, I thought it was about time I thanked you both in your guest book.
Having experienced a number of concerts in your home I just want to thank you for making us all feel welcome and putting in the hours and hard work so we can share in the magic.  This donation-only venue is a labour of love and it shows.
Best regards,

Dear Peter & Marlene, I would like to thank you for inviting me to your house party to see JP Cormier & Elliot Brothers.  It was a great show to say the very least.  Amazing musicians, the sound in your basement was like being at Masey Hall.  It was a pleasure for me and I certainly look forward to more great music at Peter's place.  Your home is beautiful.  Thank you again. 

Warm regards,  Donna Bright, Innisfil, ON

Marlene and Peter are warm and enthusiast hosts.  They open their home to us and the artists  for the pleasure of sharing the music they love.   We had a wonderful experience and were wowed by the very professional talent and the supurb sound that this intimate venue was able to obtain.   We loved it.

I have to thank YOU, for the Music Up Close House Concerts, it is really a worthwhile gift for people that love music.
I attended some of the concerts, and I can say that they are just fantastic. Just like being at home listening to great music, alive, having fun, meeting the artists, and a wonderful environment. Thank you again and I will see you at the next concert at the end of the month. Marita.
