"Hal Bruce is a true professional and performer, both on and off stage. His spot on take of the classics of the 1960s and 70s and of The Beatles is second-to-none, and it's no wonder that he sells out at our theater every single time he visits." - Tyler Myalls, Music Room Theater, Halifax, Nova Scotia

"Hal Bruce has been a mainstay at our musical event for nearly 20 years. His vast musical repertoire, his professionalism and his ability to connect with an audience is second to none. I couldn't recommend Hal Bruce highly enough for any event!" - Jon Keats, Director of the Cavern Club, Liverpool, England
