"MJ has the most amazing voice. She can sing anything in all sorts of ranges. Dean rocks it on the drums, guitar and bass. Part of the performance was upbeat with all the drumming and the other part of the performance was so soothing and relaxing. I could have slept, but I didn't want to. They basically took the audience on a journey of multiple sounds and tones. It was therapeutic and enjoyable. A very pleasantly unique experience. Thanks Dean and MJ!"
