Jennifer Batten 

"Earlier this year I had the opportunity to play bass on some recordings for and artist named Kristen Capolino.  Up until my good friend Earl Slick brought me into this project, I had never heard of this amazingly talented young lady before.  I could not have been more pleased to have been introduced to the sweet Kristen and her rockin' music.  It is rare and incredibly refreshing to see a young musician, male or female, that has not only a natural gift, excellent skills, command of her instrument, but most importantly, the dedication and discipline it takes to create something positive for the world.  Kristen is what she loves and loves what she does... Music.  I have huge respect for this little powerhouse of a player!"

Bob Donnelly

"Good afternoon, 
I hope I'm not overstepping any sort of boundary by utilizing this email address as a means to express how ebullient your performance had made not just myself, but my sister, as well. I'm ashamed to say that, prior to last night's show, I hadn't heard of the Kristen Capolino Group. 

We were there for the last 10 minutes of your rehearsal and were intrigued, just by that. Once your set began, we managed to make our way in front. The reactions from where we were standing, beyond the loud cheering, the clapping and the singing along... was of a crowd of people from all walks of life, collectively impressed. I wish you could have heard the compliments my sister and I heard people yelling into each others' ears. I think everyone was there for Blue Oyster Cult, however you've proven to be just as good of a band, with a lot, a lot of potential. 

We so desperately wanted to follow the crowd of people over to the tent wherein you all were going to meet people; but we were so worried we wouldn't get a better spot for when BOC came on. 

Anyway, as fun of a time I had, and as blown away by the performance I was, on a more personal note, I am glad my sister had joined me, because something there's not a whole helluva lot of these days, is bands fronted by strong, loud, guitar playing women. She has a guitar and is taking some lessons, and this is something she definitely needed to see in order to maintain a specific level of motivation and ambition. The show had sort of a Pat Benatar effect, had Pat played a V guitar. 

I've gone to quite a lot of concerts and NEVER... NEVER have I seen the opening band get the audience hyped nearly as much as you all had done so easily yesterday afternoon. Remarkable performance, all of you. My sister and I will certainly be on the lookout for more on this band"

Best of luck,
