Fellows, Thank you for taking the time out of April 6 to drive to our church and to deliver such a nice program for our people. Our people just raved about you! Thank you for the time and the effort you put into all of the costuming, the personalized singing at the tables and of course the 50's/60's set and ending the way you did. So good all the way around. If we don't get to hear you before October, we will see you at the Waterford Fair (Lord Willing). God Bless you all, Martha and Steve

"It was truly a pleasure to meet all of you at the Honey Baked Ham “networking” event on Thursday evening! Sincere thanks for the private sidewalk concert you performed for the guy who was disappointed for missing the main event…what a blast! How wonderful to see you guys break out the nursery rhyme serenade for the little ones. I have to mention that when I shared that story with the owner – Roxanne – upon going back inside the store…she melted."

"I am so grateful to you, Dave, Kevin, Bob, and Ray for the wonderful singing by your quartet on Saturday. It added such a professional touch to a great celebration. Needless to say, I loved the selection of music. You guys must have worked very hard to get the exact sounds that the Diamonds had in their record, “Little Darlin”. It was great and you all hit all those high notes- WOW! My kids just loved the singing. And, the job you did on Old Rugged Cross was fantastic. You reached the overtones at the finish – just dazzling. Rachel and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love you all."(Oaks of Righteousness luncheon for Chuck & Rachel Hazlet at the Purcellville Baptist Church. May 20, 2017)
"Dominion 4 sang at our national veterans reunion on April 29 at the Dulles Hilton and were a smashing success. Not only is their music great but their fun loving attitude and positive way of interacting with the group was greatly appreciated. We were so impressed, were sorry when they finished - we wanted more... [and]
Your performance on Saturday evening at the Hilton was spectacular. Everyone loved your singing and your fun loving attitude. Many folks came up to us on Sunday expressing how much they enjoyed your music and your interactions with the group."
