Hey Chris,

Hope you all made it back home safe and sound. We had an amazing time last night, and really want to thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for the performance you all gave us. We knew it was going to be incredible, but you went above and beyond.

I can’t begin to tell you the response we’ve gotten today on the party – “THE BAND MADE IT” was the recurring theme.  You guys were unbelievable – far exceeded expectations (that were high to begin with). Thank you for the two hour plus extension!

Please extend my sincerest appreciation to the rest of the band!  I really hope we get to work together sooner than next year’s holiday party!  And please count on it next year (with a 5 hour contract)!  If you ever need a referral source, please send them my way.

Happy holidays! Have an amazing time in Morocco!!

Dear Sabrina,

Thank you for helping make our day so special.
You have been an absolute pleasure to work with and chris, and his band,
were beyond perfection.

Please pass on my thanks to him and thought he may like to see these..
so many of our guest were asking for his number..including the wonderful
artist, Peter Beard.

Best wishes,



Chris, what else can I say?  Wow!  The  reviews keep rolling in and hands down, you guys were a unqualified sensation, particularly you!  Thanks for giving the party a real touch of class, and for being so generous with your time.  It was great fun, as always, collaborating with you.  I can’t wait to see pictures!

Let’s try to get together for drinks this summer.

Best wishes,





 I hope you and the band had a safe trip back to NYC yesterday.  Thank you for the laughs, your professionalism and sharing your talents with us.  You and the band really brought the party to the wedding and as I mentioned, EVERYONE had nothing but praise and compliments for you.
We will definitely be keeping you in mind for future clients and hope our paths cross again.

 With warm regards,





Dear Chris,

On behalf of everyone at Per Se , Vladimir’s family and all the guests, I would like to thank you for a wonderful performance at the anniversary celebration.It was absolutely amazing! You made the party into a most magical affair. Your talent, professionalism and charisma made a big difference.

Chris, it was a pleasure to work with you. I look forward to many more magical evenings with you and have you perform again at our next party.

All the best,





We hadn’t seen Chris or heard his music since he left our small town for the big apple. As we planned our daughters wedding, we knew Chris was our first choice as we had seen his career blossom for several years in the jazz club we owned. Through a considerable amount of effort we tracked him down and he said yes he remembered promising our daughter he would play at her wedding and absolutely he would be there. He kept in touch with us until the wedding weekend, came in town days before the event and put together his old band, rehearsed and then it was show time. And it was unbelievable. His leadership on stage, his vocals, his persona, it was like a show in Vegas. Our only regret to this day is that we did not have a professional film crew to capture the show that was so worthy of publication. Guests still rave about his performance to this day and tell us it was the best entertainment they’ve ever seen, not just at a wedding, but anywhere. Chris Norton is like none other. His performance is professional, has depth and is straight from the heart. He reads the crowd and knows how to entertain. He is a natural born entertainer and will keep the crowd on their feet.

Dear Chris,

You were such a pleasure to work with during our holiday shopping events. You and your guys were extremely professional and talented; our guests were raving about the performances! We can’t wait to have you perform again in 2012!

I would highly recommend Chris Norton and his band for any event that is appropriate. He is the consummate professional and extremely talented and flexible. A pleasure to work with.

Dear Chris,

I wanted to send you a letter to thank you for, once again, turning my birthday party into the most magical night me and my guests have ever had! You and your band were so perfect when you played for us in 2011 that I did not think it could get any better, but somehow on May 5, 2012, you outdid yourselves.

I loved how you began the evening slow, with light and lovely jazz, while people sipped champagne, growing more relaxed and happy with every song you played. And I loved how by 1030pm, you had every single one of my guests on their feet, many of them with their jackets, shoes and inhibitons tossed aside, laughing, singing along and truly DANCING with each other. Your diverse repetoire of music and versatility and charisma as a performer brought 4 generations of very different people together . I have NEVER seen my father so carefree and happy as he was when you and he and my gay personal trainer were singing that Louie Prima song together.

Can I please book you for next year right now? I was so sad when you guys couldn’t play for the Opening Night after-party for Never Sleep Alone and everyone who had been at both parties kept commenting all night that the band we booked instead couldn’t hold a candle to you guys. Call me and let’s set it up! Thanks and much love to all of you from all of us.

I did see the Chris Norton Band perform at a hotel in NYC and immediately fell in love with the energy & stage presence. I recommended him for a rather ‘tame’ corporate holiday event with no expectations to get the crowd dancing……and he brought the house down. I never seen a group of guests so ‘electrified’ after just a few minutes! It was absolutely amazing – Can’t wait to do the next event with CNB






Hi Chris

Stay in touch!




Hi Chris,
Thank you again for your wonderful performance and all around fabulous energy at our wedding, you made it even more special and our family and friends are still talking about you!!  Especially Jeff’s niece with a huge crush on you! :)
Hope you are well, and enjoying the beginning of the holiday season!  Jeff and I both agree we need to come up with another party just to have you there!!
