"Just a note to say how much we enjoyed your Grafelman Park concert last night. Loved your music and the way you got the little
kids in the audience involved. Bet you enjoyed it too, seeing those little ones boogying to Mony Mony and other oldies. Will see
you again whenever we get the chance."
Quote from Gilda and Les Birman Taste of Lincolnshire Attendees
"Heard you guys for the first time tonight at Lincolnshire and it was the best time we've had in a long time. You are the
best at bringing back old memories and I think I almost broke my lawn chair because I was rockin' and rollin' way too hard.
I wish my hubby would dance because I sure did want to get up on that dance floor and boogie the night away to your wonderful music.
Thanks for a very memorable evening and we will definitely come to see you at other venues. You made me feel like a kid again!"
Quote from Al Brown, Geneva Golf Club
"I don't know where to start ... The Class of '68 was the best band I have ever hired, and I've hired a few. They were fun,
outgoing, very easy to get long with and nice guys. We received SO many compliments from our guests, but the best one was, "This
was the perfect party. Just hire the same band, same caterer, use the same decorations. You're not going to do any better than this.""
Quote from Alan Slatin, General Manager Exmoor Country Club
"The Class of 68 Band has performed numerous times at Exmoor Country Club and the membership thoroughly enjoys the music and the
showmanship this group provides. You get the sense of each band member's passion for the music of that period. The band is fun with a
great sound and you are guaranteed to have a full dance floor with the Class of 68."
Quote from Phil Cullen, Ballydoyle Pub
"...You sounded great and put on a good show. We need to get you back in."
Quote from 2007 SPRA Showcase Attendee
"...Class of 68 blows the doors off of all the other cover bands. They have a better look and so much more genuine energy...on top
of a better sound..etc.etc."
Quote from Scott Middleton, Attendee "Reunion" CD Release Party Flatlanders
"...It was my pleasure to come out and see you guys. I really like "Class of 68" a lot! You guys play the good tunes from the 60s not
that same stuff other oldies bands play."
Quote from Skip Riani, Webmaster festing.com
"...This next choice I had never seen before and i was pleasantly surprised. Being a Classic Rocker myself I really enjoyed this
band The Class of 68. www.theclassof68.com. This band might not be for everyone because they really stick to the 60's but if you like
that genre of music they are very good. The band sounded good and tight. They played Monkees, Beatles, Paul Revere and the Raiders,
and basically all the hits from the 60's. They even played a song that I don't think I have ever heard played at a festival, that is
a personal oldies favorite "Wooly Bully" from Sam The Sham and the Pharoahs. It was great! They also interact with the crowd a lot
giving away cd's, twinkies for answering a trivia question throughout the concert. Very enjoyable! They keep the audience involved
and singing along with the music."
Quote from Janet Fornelli, Turnberry Country Club
"...'68 blew us away...the best band we have had in 29 years!"
Quote from Ron Lorenzo, Executive Director LaGrange Park Community Park District:
"..You had the entire park rockin' with the fabulous music from the 60's. I have never seen more people in the crowd singing along
to their favorite songs. I heard a lot of great comments... read full text"

a great time, which was clearly contagious to the crowd (especially the kids dancing and the very old ladies with the hand motions)."
