 “If you want to experience rich, effortless instinctive harmony doo-wop style, displayed with matter-of-fact humility and gentle humor, take a workshop from the Persuasions.”

-Barb Silverman

“The Persuasions were joyous, entertaining, and touched the hearts of our audience in ways that reminded us why we love presenting live music. I can’t remember a show where the audience sang as loud, laughed as hard and simply enjoyed themselves as deeply as the ninety minutes they spent with the guys. Thanks again and be sure to put us on the list for next year.”
-David Lavalley, Executive Director/The Center for Arts in Natick

"One of the musical thrills of my life was presenting the Persuasions in our concert series here at McMillan Library. Our central Wisconsin audience was enthralled from the first note.  Their versatility, showmanship, and sheer talent are breathtaking. The Persuasions are great people as well as great musicians. You will never meet a nicer group of guys."
