"Marie is an exceptional musician, with talent other musicians can't even fathom.  I make sure to book Marie here at Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse at least once a month.  The following she has and the atmosphere she brings to the table are irreplaceable.  Marie plays a wide variety of covers, and her voice and energy are out of this world."

 ~ Joe Brady - General Manager of Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar

"Anyone looking for a great voice and amazing lady?  Marie Anderson performed at an event my company (Capps Home Building Center) hosted and it was perfect! Everyone thought she was great"   ~ Ashley Hiett Moore


"Incredible.  Saw her tonight at The Q and she rocked.  Everyone who likes excellent raw natural talent needs to see her sing." ~ Pickers Paradise (Charles)


"The first time I heard Marie play was at The Quarter in downtown Roanoke.  She was playing with my friend Aaron Oberg and their voices jelled together so well.  She came back to The Quarter and she was playing outside on the patio.  Her beautiful voice carried out to the street and brought people in....she stayed for 13 encores!!!  It was so cool!  Not only does this talented lady draw a crowd, she encourages audience participation and if she doesn't know a song, she will learn it.  Case in point - I mentioned that I liked a song I heard on a commercial and the VERY NEXT TIME I heard her play, she sang it for me!  Who does that !?! Marie does!!!

SHe has even made up fun and funny songs that get the crowd involved.  Plus she is just a bright light to boot! She comes in quietly, sets her equipment up, speaks briefly to her audience and then proceeds to blow them away with her vocals.  Do yourself a favor - make sure you can see her perform at least once.  You will find yourself making plans to see her more often!"  ~ Bridget Buback
