Mention in the Glens Falls Post Star write-up for Saratoga First Night

Randy Loren, performer and, owner of Dolce Vita restaurant, had this to say about a recent Betsy and the ByeGons performance:

 "Hello Friends, We Want To THANK All That Attended Last Night's Dinner Show... for coming out and enjoying one of the Most Enjoyable Evenings EVER! at The Dolce Vita, Without Question Betsy and The ByeGons are the most Wonderful people and their Music was Perfect!!, We The Staff Had a Great Evening of Fun, Singing and Dancing with All Our Patrons."

"Last Night at The Dolce Vita was one of the MOST REWARDING evenings ever!  I want to Thank Betsy & The ByeGons for the Most Wonderful Performance, One of the greatest bands around, they had that dance floor rocking all night, and [had everyone] singing all the Happy, Positive, Fun Songs of our Time, Bringing back so many Wonderful Memories, WE HAD THE TIME OF [OUR] LIFE last Night at the Dolce Vita."

"Betsy and the Byegons are simply the best band in the Saratoga area"
Rick Thompson of the Saratoga Springs Internet Radio Station.(

“Saratoga’s own Betsy and the ByeGons were perfectly cast as the house band at the Bettie’s Cakes Café with their trademark golden era, girl group sound. Betsy just out and out wails and knows which mini-dress to wear while doing it. The early set found the rock-solid ByeGons pleasing kids and boomers alike, but it was a later set where the blond siren had ‘em dancing in the aisles. It was, however, the slow dance tempo cover of Lulu’s “To Sir with Love” that bowled me back!”
Matt Mac Haffie, Nippertown News ( reviewing our Saratoga First Night Show

“Betsy’s chameleon-like vocals produce convincing covers of songs like ‘Be My Baby’, ‘Walkin’ In The Sand’, ‘Maybe’, and ‘To Sir With love’.” The Saratogian, March 3, 2011.

ByeGons piece on YNN, TV channel 9!!

Hello Betsy & the Byegons!
I was at your show Tuesday night in Congress Park, and it was great! I organized the "Senior" Prom for senior citizens back in April that you guys so wonderfully performed at, and I just wanted to let you know that I'm a big fan. I brought some of my friends, and we all enjoyed it. Can't wait to see future shows!

That authentic 60s "Girl Group" sound and more!
Whether you lived the sixties yourself or you just dig that classic girl-group sound, there's no better way to spend some time than with Betsy and the ByeGons.

Bring back those happy days when the Ronettes, the Chiffons, the Shirelles, the Shangri-Las, and so many others lit up stages and screens around the world!
