Testimonials - Kind words from our supporters

October Road - (L-R: Donn, Chris, Dave, Brittnie, John, Ken)   (2018)

"October Road was a HUGE hit with our members and supporters... in fact, it was the biggest crowd of the summer! Blithewold could not have been more impressed with the performance. Ken Montigny sounded so much like James Taylor, I even heard a few people say that he actually looked like him as well. The quality of the music, the sound, the lighting and the band members were all very professional. The biggest testament to the performance was that several audience members encouraged us to hire them back. They asked and we certainly listened! Looking forward to another concert this summer."

"Love James Taylor? This band will totally light up a summer night for you as you relax with family and friends on the Taunton Green and feel like you are hearing the real thing!"

"The James Taylor song says, 'The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.' That is exactly what the packed audience at the Marion Music Hall did. They enjoyed the passing of time with Ken Montigny and his uncanny likeness to the voice of singer/songwriter James Taylor. Montigny and his band hearken to a time in our youth when we would all sing along to our favorite James Taylor songs. October Road is spot on with every JT song. They were just magnificent."
