"Thank you for your help in making the Chase Manhattan All Star Dinner a success and so much fun! It is always a concern when planning a corporate event that the entertainment will not appeal to a very diverse audience. The Tokens clearly eliminated any need to worry. It was truly wonderful! I wish The Tokens much continued success and I hope to work with them again in the future.”

"Everyone knows The Lion Sleeps Tonight. As Cruise Director on Royal Caribbean Cruise lines premier Voyager Class cruise ship the "Voyager of the Seas" it is always my distinct delight both artistically and personally to have The Tokens on board as the celebrity headline entertainment. I met them for the first time four years ago and since then, they have entertained thousands of guests aboard our ships. The Tokens stellar musicianship, masterful vocalizing and natural comedy flows joyfully and easily across the footlights, wraps around the audience and makes them an integral part of the show. The Tokens appeal stretches broadly across all age groups and nationalities and never fails to generate standing ovations and shouts for encores. Our cruise end comments consistently validate The Tokens unique rapport with our guests both on and off the stage. Their two hour autograph and sale sessions are a clear example of that report and interest. I am gratified that The Tokens are a part of the Royal Caribbean Cruise line entertainment family and I look forward to each time they sail with us. Everyone may know "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," but The Tokens are so much more.”

"The Tokens commanded the audience in Burbank.  Fans from every generation immediately relate to The Lion Sleeps Tonight, but it was the storytelling interplay between band mates and the audience that carried the evening.  They took us back to the streets of New York in the late 50's and 60's, meandered through decades of their songwriting successes, and fully reminded us why this music is still so important to us today.”

"I want to thank...The Tokens for another incredible night of music in Beverly Canon Gardens. As has been the case for the previous 2 years, the concert was the highlight of the City of Beverly Hills ‘Concerts on Canon’ summer concert series. The music was so infectious; everyone was out of their seats and dancing the night away. With an audience ranging from young children to seniors, the night was truly one to remember. Every attendee walked away with a smile on their face. A Tokens concert is the only concert that I can confidentially guarantee patrons a memorable night.  It is also the only concert of the summer series that is truly a ‘community’ concert, with more Beverly Hills residents in attendance than for any other concert. The most consistently asked question I receive in advance of the summer concert series is if The Tokens will be performing.  My answer is always ‘yes’! I know I would be run out of town if The Tokens were not on the schedule."
