         "Davina on the sax and Ed on the guitar were the perfect duet for our women’s member- guest at Eagle Creek golf club. They played during our cocktail hour and during dinner and the entire music selection, which was left to their discretion, did not disappoint. The booking process was very efficient and Davina was extremely easy to work with. Highly recommended."

          "While planning our wedding, we went to the Ottawa Wedding Show and that's where we met Davina. We knew right away when we talked with her that we would love to have live music at our wedding. We were convinced that it would make this special day even more amazing.

Think of Davina as a musical concierge.She met with us initially to understand the vision we had for our wedding, the ambiance we wanted to create and the type of music we were looking for. Davina then took this knowledge and understanding and translated it into a band, songs and equipment. Based on on the instruments that would be there and the type of music we wanted, she suggested several songs for those special moments – procession, first dance, etc. It was exactly what we were looking for. Working with Davina was simple and pleasurable."

          "I was in the planning stages for my recent wedding, and I knew for sure that I wanted live music, but I had never booked musicians before, and I had no idea where to start. A mutual acquaintance recommended Davina so I called her up. Davina met with me, and we sat down and planned the music for the evening together. The music was divided into two 'periods' to match the guests’ activities.  First, there was a smooth jazz cocktail group, playing as the guests arrived and started to mingle. They set the mood beautifully, creating an elegant and stylish backdrop that continued all through dinner.  After dinner, there was a fabulous dance band. They did an amazing job of entertaining our guests until the end of the evening. They got everyone up dancing and enjoying the music. I was absolutely thrilled with their performance, I think the music just made the evening.

At the planning stage, Davina provided excellent thoughts and suggestions.  Her experience and expertise were clearly evident.  She asked thoughtful questions about how the evening would unfold, my objectives, the group demographics and musical tastes.   She delved into details.  As a result, the plan was so easy to put together - and it was clear and unambiguous. The smooth jazz group created a tasteful ambiance during the cocktail party - a perfect backdrop without being overwhelming.  The dance band - what can I say.  Amazing.  Even the bar tenders were dancing.  When I asked people how they enjoyed the evening, every single one of them said "The band was fantastic".  Not the food, the decorations or the hall (all of which were really good too) - they all raved about the music.  Importantly, the band created fun for the guests. Davina was accessible, responsive, knowledgeable and professional.  She took care of every aspect of the music for the evening (including during the band’s breaks) and it was delivered flawlessly. I highly recommend her."

Kathy A., Wedding Client

          "I asked Davina to provide live music at the opening of a recent art exhibition at the Cube Gallery in Ottawa. The music was just perfect. Davina was accompanied by a talented piano player, and together they presented a tasteful selection of jazz standards and familiar songs that truly made the evening special. It became an elegant cocktail party - the live music made it so much more than a simple wine and cheese for a vernissage.

I was concerned that a saxophone might be a bit loud, but Davina's playing was just right, perfectly adjusted to let people mingle and chat without effort. And her sound was so mellow and smooth, and the melodies so engaging. It was exactly what I had in mind for the evening.

Davina was also a pleasure to work with from the moment I called her. She understood precisely what I wanted, and just made it happen. I highly recommend Davina for similar private parties or public functions."
Allan Silburt, Seven Oaks Fine Art

          "Last night Ottawa Life Magazine, Mizrahi Developments and the Ottawa Hospital Foundation's "The Run" hosted a Vernissage and fundraising event in Westboro featuring the wonderful art of Canadian Artist Darlene Kulig. It was a splendid and immensely successful event in no small part thanks to the Davina Pearl Trio (DPT) whose jazz infused music set the tone for the entire evening. The DPT has an understated and very uber cool melodic vibe that hit all the right notes for our guests. DPT is classy, sassy and exceptional musicians and performers. We definitely will be asking them to perform for us in the future. I highly recommend the DPT if you are looking for music for an event that will jazz up the night and bring a touch of class to everyone."

          "During the planning stages of the 2017 IAMFA Conference in Ottawa-Gatineau, I was asked to look into providing musical entertainment at two special conference events; the welcoming reception at the Chateau Laurier and the Dinner Gala at the Canadian Museum of History. I immediately thought of asking Davina to provide that live music as I had heard she was a great musician and was able to tailor music to specific needs. She delivered!! The music was just fantastic!! It made all the Members & Guests smiled and brought these events to a higher success level. Davina was truly professional and pleasant to work with. I would not hesitate calling her again for any other events. Thank you Davina and to your wonderful Band Members."

Martin Leclerc, International Association of Museum Facility Administrators

          "I was helping coordinate a celebration to mark the end of a 5-year project at the Ottawa Airport. It was to be an elegant, catered event in the arrivals area hall on the first floor of the terminal. What better to fill the air as people mingled than by having some live music in the background! I had no idea where to look to find musicians so, I turned to Facebook! I made a post describing what I was looking for and was referred to Davina through an acquaintance who answered my post. Davina and I worked closely together to match the type of music her group could provide and what was appropriate for the setting. Because of the space in the arrivals area being wide and open to the third floor, I needed to make sure the sound would not affect operations. She sent me a sample of the style of music that she was proposing and sold us! She knew exactly what I was looking for. She also assured me that the group could adjust the noise level as they played, in case it was too loud, or not loud enough. We received many positive comments about the music, from guests, and passengers alike.

  

Davina was also great to deal with. She communicated very well, was quite thorough and delivered on what she promised. All members of the trio were punctual, professional, and masters of their instruments. Their passion radiated along with their sounds. It was just beautiful! We will definitely consider having Davina Pearl Groups perform at YOW again and I would recommend them to anyone looking for such a service."

          "We were so delighted to host Davina and her group for our recent concert series. Davina and her musicians are passionate and skilled performers who engaged the crowd and made sure everyone had a wonderful time. They had the whole room tapping their toes and swaying to the music. We were so pleased with the way their performance was received. Throughout the planning stages of the event we appreciated Davina’s professional, friendly and communicative approach. I highly recommend Davina for concerts, entertainment and receptions of all sorts."

          "Last Wednesday evening at my book launch for Travels with Stanley, the Davina Pearl Duo performed. It was at the 3 Sisters Bakeshop and Cafe, a homey and eclectic location. It was a great crowd, 105 people not counting Davina and Nathan the guitarist accompanying her. The music selection was perfect but even more important the music was incorporated into the party without being overbearing. It was soothing, pleasant and delightful. The mood that Davina created on the saxophone was perfect, never overwhelming. Think saxophone and guitar next time you want to have perfect mood music for your party. Thank you Davina and Nathan."
