Hi Craig
When I saw you at Fashion Island performing I knew you were different, It was the only time I had seen a crowd form who just stopped to watch and listen.  At that time I knew if we had a business function we would be calling you.  When we did have our customer event you met all our expectations.  Since then seeing you performing in a bar I realized there is not one Craig Colley.  At each venue you adapted your performance to the needs of the venue and atmosphere.  Well done keep it up and we will be booking you again.

Hi Craig,
this is vic, a friend of Mike and Karen. Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your performance in Dana Point Saturday. I am a great appreciator of musical talent and I think you are really talented. I know it takes tens of thousands of hours practicing to get to where you are and I know I speak for all my friends who were there when I say we all thouroughly enjoyed your show. I would give up everything I own if I could be half as good as you are. Hope to see you again soon.
Best regards, vic

Hi Craig,

Just wanted to say thanks for a nice evening at Quinn’s last night.  We did not know that you would be playing there last night and were concerned that our conversation might be drowned out by whoever was going to play.  However we were pleasantly surprised when you came on as your performance was great and while a distraction, it was a distraction we enjoyed.  It probably helped that you played music that we were familiar with, like Sleep Walk and On the dock of a Bay and Eric Clapton too.  I just happened to remember all of those, so thanks for the CD too.  We will enjoy.

I just pulled up your website and noticed that you started your career in Chicago.  My kind of town, also.  I grew up in Park Ridge, a northwest suburb, and graduated from high school in 1961.  Harrison Ford was a year ahead of me and a pair of twins, Jim and John Hager (from Hee Haw) were a couple of years ahead of me.  Carrie Snodgress, was a couple of years behind me, (she went on to Hollywood and did a number of movies and then paired up with Neil Young )  Last of the big names from Park Ridge is Hillary Clinton. 

A lot of talent has come from the Chicago area, and you clearly are one of the talented people too.  The best to you, and hope to see you again sometime.  I am heading to Chicago this week to spend some time with my Dad, who recently turned 95.  We are going to talk about him moving to California this year.

All the best,

Our evening was unforgettable thanks to your entertainment.
We loved it. 
You are truly a great entertainer.   
We will absolutely book you again for future events! 
Thank you!

We were very fortunate to have Craig Colley entertain a group of friends at a party we held in our home. He alone made our party memorable.

What makes Craig over and above others in the entertainment field is his ability to relate to many separate individuals in a group, yet keep the group enjoying things together.

His style is so personal, that he makes you feel that he is entertaining you alone. This is a special talent, that few entertainers possess.

Best Wishes for continued success.

Warm Regards,
Mark and Leslie

Hi Craig,

We want to thank you again for your awesome performance at our event last Saturday. Your range of music – from Coldplay to Neil Young – is amazing, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all of our guests. Your talent added the perfect vibe to our fun! In short, we’re fans!

We look forward to seeing you at a local venue soon.

Best Regards,
Kellie and Mitch

Forgive me, Craig, for not writing before this to thank you so much for the great job you did at the reunion.

To get life into these people was not the easiest job in the world but you did a remarkable job. I just think you are so talented and I am glad you are here in Orange County. Count me in as one of your "groupies!!!"

Your singing "The Last Resort" was absolutely perfect in every way. You sang it as it is supposed to be sung. GS just loved it and he spent most of the song tearing up. Thank you so much for that. As you said, it really is quite a beautiful song once you concentrate on the words and anyone from Hawaii would love to hear you sing it.

I will see you again wherever you are playing so keep sending me your itinerary.

You're a good sport, Craig, with a wonderful sense of humor. I look forward to being in your audience once again.

Thank you.

Craig entertaining at the Beverly Hills Hotel




Dear Craig,

I wanted to thank you for a wonderful show on New Year’s Eve.  Our community is still talking about how much fun they had.  It’s not easy to get everyone up dancing and you did it!!! I have heard “It was the best New Year’s Eve Party I’ve been to in years”, over and over this week. Those praises are due to your talent.  The music was superb.  We loved your choice of songs, your voice and your excellent guitar and keyboard talent.  It was a great show and a terrific night. 

Thank you,
Randi Pisapia

Craig is a versatile performer who is a true professional and pleasant to work with.  His Americana performance at the City of Laguna Niguel Patriot Day event captivated the audience and brought tears and celebration through his music.  Not only did he impress musically, but he also created theme appropriate banners to accent and follow the story of his show and he donated his CD sales proceeds to organizations benefitting victims of Sept. 11, 2001.

"Craig immediately fit into the "vibe" of Quinn's from the first set. His musicality and engaging voice  got our guests very much into the show. He kept the crowd around which was great and has our patrons asking when he is coming back. We definitely want him in our rotation at Quinn's.

Bob Mardian, Owner & Founder of Wind & Sea Restaurant said this about Colley, “I'm really excited that Craig is re-launching his live performance career. He first entertained at the Wind & Sea in 1985. We here at the Wind & Sea consider ourselves very fortunate to partner up with Craig. His level of professionalism and engaging personality make Wind & Sea a better place. His special musical talent really raises the bar on the nights he entertains our clientele and we are enthusiastically looking forward to Craig Colley again becoming a permanent part of our regularly scheduled entertainment program at the Wind & Sea.”

Bob Conrad, Manager of Harpoon Henry’s
" He always creates fun atmosphere for his audiences and you never know what he’s got up his sleeve. His musical talent is so versatile which makes him such a unique performer. Craig is the ultimate professional and we consider ourselves very fortunate have him appear at Harpoon Henry’s."

Katia Bagatta, owner of Bistro K said “Craig Colley rocked the night away at Bistro K with his performance here last month! My Bistro K website was flooded with compliments for Craig & inquiries to when his next dates would be.” Bagatta added, “Those who are planning to come should make a reservation to assure a seat to see Craig rock the house again! Craig’s appearances here are instrumental in helping make the Bistro K southern OC's newest hot spot.”
