"Truly authentic experience. It was such fun to be hosted in this wonderful house and have an up close experience with a live band. Fabulous musicians and I am sure you will be surprised at several turns. Renée is a very kind guy and will welcome you as if you were a houseguest. If you see a date for this event and your thinking about it; go for it. It may ended up being one of your Top5 during your trip."  Jeffery, Montreal, Canada

This was the first time to a Blues Rock Jam session. The band was amazing! The singer has such a strong gospel voice. The atmosphere was very intimate, we had the feeling the performance was just for us. This was a great experience Angelie & Winston, Massachusetts

Un concierto totalmente íntimo. Éramos tan solo 8 personas! Nos invitaron con un trago a elección y nos sentamos en el sillón a disfrutar del show de Rene y sus músicos! Muy buena onda de todos ellos! Muy recomendable para quienes gusten de una velada diferente y disfruten de la buena música en vivo. Damien, Morón, Argentina

This "Live Rock @ The Harlem Flophouse" was one of the most entertaining music events I have ever attended! This band flows with such crispness you accomplish after numerous years of practice. The lead singer touches ALL levels....that voice....coming from this thin, fit woman....amazing! The atmosphere was cozy. I was thoroughly impressed with this Brownstone. The interior has been restored to it's original state (not stripped and modernized, such a crime) . The acoustics of the parlor was ideal for this band. This event is like an NYC hidden treasure. Please don't let that be! I wish more people to experience the greatness of this event. I met an awesome Australian family at this event and they were blown away........If you are local, do yourself a favor, bring a couple friends....You won't be disappointed! Bruce, Paterson. New Jersey
