What They’re Saying…

Upbeat from the first downbeat, Les DeMerle and Bonnie Eisele put on a performance that would rival what is offered by the best jazz clubs in New York.  Downbeat Magazine

Travolta, two thumbs up…  With Bonnie Eisele’s Brazilian vocals, The Les DeMerle Band’s samba groove was so contagious that I just couldn’t resist dancing and came back for more. This band really cooks!    -John Travolta

On A Roll….  Onstage, Eisele and DeMerle are a hot combination. Her powerful voice and natural feel for rhythm come across in an explosive stage performance. His energy is absolutely contagious.  -Florida Times-Union
