    Get Your Ex Back??Best online spell caster Reviews by Natasha from UK.
    My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn’t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity.I recommend Dr.Unity to everyone here, If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or call him on: +2348072370762.

    Great Baba is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 5 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr Ajaguna whom i met online after my friend Paul Tricia told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 28 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr Ajaguna a try and i contacted him and i explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 28 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a lie but i took courage and believed as Dr Ajaguna has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, apologizing for forgiveness. I forgave him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we are expecting our baby. Dr Ajaguna is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr Ajaguna at anytime and just visit is website and see so many people testifying about his good and wonderful work. Just contact him and he will help you solve all your problems. Once again thank you Dr Ajaguna Thank you, thank you. Ajaguna7demons@gmail.com

    Why I am writing this testimony is because I made a promise that whosoever that helps me out of my relationship predicament deserves to be known even more by the world. I am 37 years of age, my husband had a very powerful love spell on him that a female he knows put on him and I wanted it removed as this caused serious problems in our marriage and he left me for her. It seemed nothing on earth can bring our paths together forever, I felt really bad because I love him so dearly. I had sleepless nights because I missed my hubby’s touch and care. I seldom visit this webpage but anytime I do, I see two or more positive reviews about a man named dr. Adoda and his mysterious and miraculous works that saves relationships and marriages, this got me curious. Also, I normally see other several reviews, although I learn’t that there are lots of scammers out there but I contacted Adoda because I was convinced by a testifier I contacted, that dr. Adoda spell is the big deal. I gave him a chance out of my doubting spirit but to my greatest surprise my husband called me 2 days after dr. Adoda did his thing on him and my hubby’s behalf, that he is so sorry for all the pains he has made me pass through, he wanted to be back home. Presently our love is more than that of Romeo and Juliet, he takes too good care of me now, 110% than before. I know there are others out there, I say if you find dr.adodalovespelltemple@gmail.com then your problem is as well solved. Lydia Ryan W. from California, USA

    Hi Guys,
    I’m a big supporter of good local music and happened to see you at The Cliff in Laguna a month or so ago. I live in Dana Point. I really enjoyed your music and sound. Will you guys be booking some dates in south orange county in January? Would enjoy seeing you guys again and turning some friends onto your music. Anything coming up at The Cliff, Mozambique or other venues in this area for January? Keep up the great music….Cheers all.

    First of all I want to thank you for the music that you bring into the world. We saw you last Saturday night at The Cliff in Laguna Beach as we always do. When I referred to we, I talk about a group of us that all live here, that has “grown in numbers” when you play this venue. Your Deadmans Party song is the best! Chelsea, your voice is amazing!! You said, “you can come talk to us, we have personalities” it couldn’t be more true. It was great talking with you and also caught up with Chuck. Was at very end of night myself and my friend Don, got a chance to catch up. I urge everybody to make friends with this group. We’ll be seeing you at more shows in the future. Cheers! Oh, and your always invited to the world famous Sharkbite Lounge conveniently located in close proximity of The Cliff!

    Hi, folks. I’m the one who loved y’all at Pageant. The more I’ve listened to your sound, the more I love it. Have you ever considered covering an old tune called “Amie” by Pure Prairie League? It’d suit you perfectly. Anyway, I do hope to catch you live again soon. Continued success! You’ve got a unique and terrific sound!

    Was walking by Amigo’s in Ventura, CA last Wednesday when I heard the most angelic voice pouring out onto the street. It drew me in, and I discovered Salty Suites. Although I already had other plans that night, I never made it since I had to stay for your entire set. I was delighted to learn that you were going to be at Amigo’s every Wed for the rest of the month. So I found myself there again tonight, early this time to make sure I caught the entire set. Scott wasn’t there last week, and boy what a treat to have him there tonight. Listening to him lead “Go Easy” was like a religious experience. Thank you for bringing such passion to your performance! I’ve been scouring YouTube for other live recordings of you guys playing this song, but nothing compares to what it’s like hearing it live in such an intimate venue.

    Saw Scott playing on the street in Santa Cruz, Thursday. we were all impressed and my husband made the comment “we’ll be seeing him on American Idol soon”. My son was downtown last night with his buddies. They ended up running into Scott because there was a rather large crowd gathering around him. They each bought a CD which I am now listening to. We had no idea there was a whole band! Glad to have stumbled across your music! We are instant fans!

    Thank goodness you were back in Santa Cruz! My youngest daughter and I saw you several weeks ago and we bought the live album (at something cellars I think) and it’s been in the rotation since! We love it – along with van halen, weezer, and the peppers of course. Today I was with both my daughters just shuffling down pacific and I heard this familiar sound and you were back! After about an hour my oldest made us leave because she had to go “study”. Anyway – I don’t know where to start but each of you is great – I love the vibe – your voices – the writing. Thanks for singing “Salty Eyes” for me or for Santa Cruz that is. That song’s been a life saver of late. Peace out. Please come back. Play a venue next time and let me know in advance so I can bring a bunch of friends to fatten your wallets. Your biggest fan, Chris.

I can’t stop singing “Hear the Thunder” and “Time to Time…” Please see my article that was just published about Bob’s venue, as well as excerpts about your show that night.

    it was such a treat seeing Scott in Santa Cruz singing and playing downtown on Pacific.. I thought he was just a kid playing on the street corner with an exceptional talent… And when I asked him his name, he humbly told me with no mention of fame or popularity… What a humble beautiful young man you are… My husband and I spent at least an hour there listening to you… We are still humming your songs… i wish all the best things in the world for you kid… God Bless you and hold you close Angelina and Peter Dunne

    “It was a fun evening. You all have great energy on stage. The small venue allowed us to interact easily with sing alongs and an occasional question from the audience. Your combined musical talents made for a thoroughly entertaining time. I hope you have many more opportunities to perform and expand your fan base.”

    The CD is great. Heard the band the first time at their recent performance at Abounding Grace Chapel in Tucson. Performance made us solid fans. Particularly enjoyed Chelsea’s part. Her voice is perfect and the expression during the song is something that few artists have.

    I saw your performance yesterday in Temecula. Wow, I had goose bumps watching such talent. Fun to watch the bass player. Chelsea’s voice is so smooth and powerful hitting all the highs and lows. Scott’s mandolin playing reminds me of Bella Fleck with some Bob Dylan vocals. I design and build custom furniture and am also a luthier that likes to add inlay to my work. I went to the shows to get inspired on making my next guitar, maybe a baritone. Thank you for making my afternoon. Such talent. I’m sure I’ll be seeing more of your band in the future. Well done.

    @ The Temecula Bluegrass Festival–Before I even rounded the corner of the hot dog restaurant where the makeshift “rainy day” stage had been set up, I heard the music and thought “Here we go!”. Stuck around for the second show at the theater where we could actually see and hear–so much individual talent beautifully blended in a well-crafted set. Thanks for an outstanding experience.

    Busking in Santa Cruz: Just wanted to tell you that Friday night was what I call one of those “unexpected music moments.” I heard something those few minutes that you can never try to find – it just happens. Sorry my husband and I hadn’t finished dinner sooner so I could have heard more. I watched some of your vids on youtube … John McEuen – why was I not at all surprised? Not sure if you have a mailing list but if so, would love to join it. I looked on your calendar, don’t see anything on it yet that’s closer to these parts, but if I find myself in SoCal for any reason, I’ll try to find a show. Best wishes in your pursuits (Chris Thile better watch out),

    Hi Scott, I came across a video of you and Chelsea playing on YouTube and was absolutely amazed. I think the Salty Suites are a group of very talented individuals and I hope that you make it through Arizona someday so that I can see you play live! I am a mandolin player myself and have been inspired by your mandolin playing and Chelsea’s singing to get out and do some open mics and I would like to thank you for inspiring me!

At the end of the day, I explored YouTube for Chelsea’s solo videos/songs. This band is a PERFECT fit for her vocals, material and energy. You guys & ladies have to stick together…the sum is greater than the sum of the parts!

Wendy said “This guy is pretty good.” I just …smiled and told her “Duh, that’s Scott!” (His girlfriend was standing there too – that was another clue!) I wish Paramount Ranch would hold an event like that quarterly, if not monthly!

    Thanks for your words and thank you for all the great YouTubes of Scott and Nathan and company. I was so impressed with them, their musical style and their musicianship at the Huck Finn Jubilee. Before I went there, a friend of mine also had just introduced me to Chelsea Williams’ music and, at Huck Finn, I hadn’t yet made the connection, until driving away from Victorville with Scrapbook Sessions playing in my car. Scott is the focal point of some excellent music being made that, as a Californian, makes me truly proud. I didn’t realize the extent to which California is really an outstanding Bluegrass state with outstanding young talent. (I’m very impressed with the Tuttles and AJ Lee, too). BTW I sent a copy of Scrapbook Sessions (signed by Nathan, Scott and Chuck) to a Dutch musician that I follow named Bertolf Lentink – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5nvCE_yE1Y He really enjoyed it and said he wants to make a Bluegrass-inspired record one day. Anyhow… it’s exciting music. Keep up with the outstanding YouTubes – I really enjoy them! My favorite is the gig you captured at the Castoro Cellars in June 2009. What an enjoyable evening that must have been! All the best, ~Steve

Each one of the four of you brought a magic and energy to the stage that collectively was superb. In our discussions with your lead singer and bass player, we were told that you would be in Southern Ca. at least 2-3 more times this year. We want to plan on attending your concerts. Please pass on any info regarding your future engagements so we, in turn, may make arrangements to see you. When will you all be releasing a CD? Again, please let us know. Scott, We wish you all the success possible. You are an unbelievable talent. Take Care. Sincere Regards, Bill

You are truly an inspiration to those that have lost the music that breaths life into our souls and moves our hearts. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity (for the second time)to sit in awe in the front row as you and Nathan performed at Arcadia High school in Phoenix, Arizona. I hope the low number attending the last performance does not deter you from ever coming back to our school. I am so grateful to have been touched by your music that I promise to make an effort of my own to make sure every seat is filled next time you agree to perform at our school. Thank you.

    My family and I really enjoyed your performance at Julian. I am looking forward to your newest CD. The song “Ode to the mandolin” was a jaw dropper. You were clearly the best band there. I like most that you are staying true to traditional bluegrass. Thanks for the great show Robert

    Scott, I have just read your Dad’s comment about your room. If you and your band came to England to play, you deserve to be put up in a 5 Star Hotel. Something which matches your playing I think they have maids to clean rooms !!

    Was looking for music by Evan Marshall and John Marshall. Found some neat stuff with Evan and Scott, and enjoyed it very much. We’ll try to catch one of your performances next summer when we are on our home leave. (We are Californians living in Bangladesh.) Not much Blue Grass music here.

    Get Your Ex Back??Best online spell caster Reviews by Natasha from UK.
    My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn’t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity.I recommend Dr.Unity to everyone here, If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or call him on: +2348072370762.

    Great Baba is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 5 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr Ajaguna whom i met online after my friend Paul Tricia told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 28 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr Ajaguna a try and i contacted him and i explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 28 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a lie but i took courage and believed as Dr Ajaguna has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, apologizing for forgiveness. I forgave him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we are expecting our baby. Dr Ajaguna is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr Ajaguna at anytime and just visit is website and see so many people testifying about his good and wonderful work. Just contact him and he will help you solve all your problems. Once again thank you Dr Ajaguna Thank you, thank you. Ajaguna7demons@gmail.com

  5. Lydia Ryan says

    Why I am writing this testimony is because I made a promise that whosoever that helps me out of my relationship predicament deserves to be known even more by the world. I am 37 years of age, my husband had a very powerful love spell on him that a female he knows put on him and I wanted it removed as this caused serious problems in our marriage and he left me for her. It seemed nothing on earth can bring our paths together forever, I felt really bad because I love him so dearly. I had sleepless nights because I missed my hubby’s touch and care. I seldom visit this webpage but anytime I do, I see two or more positive reviews about a man named dr. Adoda and his mysterious and miraculous works that saves relationships and marriages, this got me curious. Also, I normally see other several reviews, although I learn’t that there are lots of scammers out there but I contacted Adoda because I was convinced by a testifier I contacted, that dr. Adoda spell is the big deal. I gave him a chance out of my doubting spirit but to my greatest surprise my husband called me 2 days after dr. Adoda did his thing on him and my hubby’s behalf, that he is so sorry for all the pains he has made me pass through, he wanted to be back home. Presently our love is more than that of Romeo and Juliet, he takes too good care of me now, 110% than before. I know there are others out there, I say if you find dr.adodalovespelltemple@gmail.com then your problem is as well solved. Lydia Ryan W. from California, USA

  9. Bob Prager says

    A large (old) photo of your group at El Dorado Park Nature Center is on page 3 of today’s Long Beach Press-Telegram. The article is promoting (among other things) the Nature Center Concerts.

  12. Kevin Kolozsvari says

    Great to see you guys last night at Mosambiques. Such great music and musicians. I had my son and his girl friend come out with me, they are now big fans. Keep up the great work, we are big supporters of local music. Hopefully you can book more dates in south Orange County for us to enjoy.
    Thanks again,
    Kevin, Carson and Alyssa

  13. Marc Daniel says

    I really love your music and appreciate every concert. When do you guys present your new cd? And I really recommend to add ´Chocolate on my tongue´ to a new cd. It´s a wonderful (the Best) Version of that song!!! Hope to see you soon,
    Marc

  14. Kevin Kolozsvari says

    Hi Guys,
    I’m a big supporter of good local music and happened to see you at The Cliff in Laguna a month or so ago. I live in Dana Point. I really enjoyed your music and sound. Will you guys be booking some dates in south orange county in January? Would enjoy seeing you guys again and turning some friends onto your music. Anything coming up at The Cliff, Mozambique or other venues in this area for January? Keep up the great music….Cheers all.

  15. Dave says

    You guys are awesome! Every singe show we’ve attended, you guys have put on an amazing performance. In fact, you guys were our son’s first time seeing live music was at the Festival of the Arts when he was only 1! We are huge fans and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

  16. Michael Lewis says

    I watched the show last night and used up most of my bandwidth allotment for November, but you folks did a great job. Very entertaining, for sure.

  17. Scott Trimble says

    First of all I want to thank you for the music that you bring into the world. We saw you last Saturday night at The Cliff in Laguna Beach as we always do. When I referred to we, I talk about a group of us that all live here, that has “grown in numbers” when you play this venue. Your Deadmans Party song is the best! Chelsea, your voice is amazing!! You said, “you can come talk to us, we have personalities” it couldn’t be more true. It was great talking with you and also caught up with Chuck. Was at very end of night myself and my friend Don, got a chance to catch up. I urge everybody to make friends with this group. We’ll be seeing you at more shows in the future. Cheers! Oh, and your always invited to the world famous Sharkbite Lounge conveniently located in close proximity of The Cliff!

  18. William Levin says

    You guys were great tonight at the Sawdust, your all so talented, and saw you not long ago at Mozambique in Laguna where I live. Love you CD’s and Chelsey is so hot. lol

  19. Rose says

    We,my boyriend J.and I, had the pleasure of listening to you at the Sawdust Festival and absolutely fell in love 🙂 I will be seeing you this weekend at Trader Joe’s in Ventura!!! xoxoxox

  20. John says

    Thanks Chuck, Chelsea and Scott, Great 3 hour gig at Southwestern Yacht Club in San Diego last night. Standing ovation with an encore! How much better can it get! Great way to top off my birthday!

  21. Elliot Field says

    Hi, folks. I’m the one who loved y’all at Pageant. The more I’ve listened to your sound, the more I love it. Have you ever considered covering an old tune called “Amie” by Pure Prairie League? It’d suit you perfectly. Anyway, I do hope to catch you live again soon. Continued success! You’ve got a unique and terrific sound!

  22. Matthew Graczyk says

    Was walking by Amigo’s in Ventura, CA last Wednesday when I heard the most angelic voice pouring out onto the street. It drew me in, and I discovered Salty Suites. Although I already had other plans that night, I never made it since I had to stay for your entire set. I was delighted to learn that you were going to be at Amigo’s every Wed for the rest of the month. So I found myself there again tonight, early this time to make sure I caught the entire set. Scott wasn’t there last week, and boy what a treat to have him there tonight. Listening to him lead “Go Easy” was like a religious experience. Thank you for bringing such passion to your performance! I’ve been scouring YouTube for other live recordings of you guys playing this song, but nothing compares to what it’s like hearing it live in such an intimate venue.

  23. Elliot Field says

    Friends and I heard you folks last night at Pageant. You were terrific! We enjoyed all the songs, but we especially liked your cover of “Dead Man’s Party.” We hope to catch you at some other venues or maybe even again at Pageant in August.

  24. Latisha Jones says

    I caught your show last night at the Belly Up in San Diego. It was my first Salty Suites show and I’m now a fan for life. Y’all are absolutely fantastic! Take care on your travels and continue to have fun playing & singing.

  25. Grass Valley Family says

    Miss seeing Scott in Grass Valley. Jammin to your old cd. Been quite a few years since he’s been at the fathers day festival. Would be great to see back here some time.

  26. wendy girard says

    Saw your show last night in Carpinteria. Loved it! You guys are so fun to watch! Thanks for coming to Carp. Wendy

  27. Shaun Lawton says

    Saw you guys up in Laguna Beach last week, love your sound and traditional setup. Keep it up, hope you make it big!!

  28. Vanessa Vasquez says

    Went to my first festival and you were the first band I saw and heard. Absolutely amazing!!! I was not disappointed. You guys are my new favorite band!!

  29. Brad Bowling says

    Great show at Sawdust. First time I’ve seen you guys play. Keep me informed on upcoming local So CA events

  30. Joe says

    Great show at the Logandale Fall Festival. Love your music and you’ve got a new fan. The “beer song” rocks!

  31. Clark Williams says

    The show at mission brewery was very good. Thanks for coming all the way down here to San Diego. I look forward to seeing you guys again!

  32. Jay says

    Finally got to see you play last night in San Diego and I was not disappointed. You guys were great. Even my non-bluegrass-folksy friends loved you. And wow Chelsea is so beautiful in person!

  33. Pageant of the Masters Rachel says

    Fabulous set last night at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach. Seriously, one of the best bands to play all summer. Thanks for the encore!

  39. Dan OBrien says

    Great show last night at Alpine Hills! First time I’ve seen you guys and it won’t be the last. Already made a visit to the iTunes Store for a couple of your songs. Thanks for some amazing music. You rock! Dan

  40. lara becker says

    Saw Scott playing on the street in Santa Cruz, Thursday. we were all impressed and my husband made the comment “we’ll be seeing him on American Idol soon”. My son was downtown last night with his buddies. They ended up running into Scott because there was a rather large crowd gathering around him. They each bought a CD which I am now listening to. We had no idea there was a whole band! Glad to have stumbled across your music! We are instant fans!

  41. Whistler says

    We will miss you all but wish you all well and Scott and Chelsea have fun on your trips to Canada and France and let me know if you would like me as a roady.lolHope to see you soon upon your return.much Love Whistler.

  43. Michelle Nichole says

    You guys killed it in City Walk. I love your music. It’s music for the soul. Keep it up and hope to hear more. Good vibes, Michelle ????

  44. Lukas Alzamora says

    Dear Salty Suites, My name is Lukas and I’m 11 years old I lately saw a concert by you guys at Zoey’s Cafe. I had such a fun time that i couldn’t stop laughing. I had such an amazing time! The night was perfect. Good music and friends, can’t get any better. By the end of the concert, I KNEW that I had to get a signed CD. I really love you guys! You guys are my favorite band Love, Lukas

  45. Jan Marie says

    I’m just hearing you on a folk station in Second Life, and LOVE IT! Your rendition of Hallelujah drew tears. You got a new fan here! Where can I hear more?

  46. Lesley Stampleman says

    Thanks for making Pacific Ave. a great music spot on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Come back to Santa Cruz soon!

  47. Manthri Srinath says

    That was a nice surprise and a pleasant diversion on a lazy Sunday afternoon 🙂 I hope you enjoyed using that Lulu’s gift card. Thanks for making the streets a more joyful place to be. Much luck to you in your careers!

  48. Chris Melcer says

    Thank goodness you were back in Santa Cruz! My youngest daughter and I saw you several weeks ago and we bought the live album (at something cellars I think) and it’s been in the rotation since! We love it – along with van halen, weezer, and the peppers of course. Today I was with both my daughters just shuffling down pacific and I heard this familiar sound and you were back! After about an hour my oldest made us leave because she had to go “study”. Anyway – I don’t know where to start but each of you is great – I love the vibe – your voices – the writing. Thanks for singing “Salty Eyes” for me or for Santa Cruz that is. That song’s been a life saver of late. Peace out. Please come back. Play a venue next time and let me know in advance so I can bring a bunch of friends to fatten your wallets. Your biggest fan, Chris.

  49. Kathy O'Donnell says

    My sister & I (from Boston & Maine) were going through Temecula last weekend, stopped to catch some of the Bluegrass Festival and had the pleasure of hearing you guys perform. Great musicianship, great vocals, great heart. We loved you! Please keep us on any mailing list so we know when you CD is coming out.

  50. Jim Sappington says

    Scott, we’ve enjoyed seeing you play at the Temecula BG Fest. and other SoCal venues since ’06 (POB). Better every year…truly a mando virtuoso! You’ve always seemed to put together such talents, now with Chelsea, Elaine and Chuck. Absolutely phenomenal! Oh and BTW, thanks for “Lowlands” during your last set in the theater yesterday. I like to think you did since I asked if you would 😉

  51. Joey Basu says

    “Always enjoyed listening to your band, but it’s been really cool to hear your most recent clips & see you all getting even more talented. Great stuff, Salty Suites.”

  52. Steve Terry says

    Hi Scott, After breaking down and crying while listening to you sing on Pacific Ave yesterday, I had to write to tell you why. Your voice singing the words of the song (Tall Cliffs) just drew it out of me. I couldn’t stop it. Take care of your gift. Thanks, Scott! Let me know when you have a gig in Santa Cruz. I’ll be there!

  53. Mackenzie says

    My friend Caylee Norrod brought me to see you guys because she said you were her favorite band. I expected nothing less than fantastic musicianship, but somehow I got more. You guys were charismatic, extremely talented, and friendly as well as accommodating. I loved the performance and bought a CD immediately after. Thank you for the experience. -Mackenzie

  54. Shelley Kilgore says

    It was great meeting you at The Coffee Gallery Backstage on November 14, 2012. I was in awe of your talent and feel lucky to have caught your show during my trip out west! Scott- The Salty Suites CD is still in my car. I can’t stop singing “Hear the Thunder” and “Time to Time…” Please see my article that was just published about Bob’s venue, as well as excerpts about your show that night. Enjoy and best of luck to you! Please let me know if you ever make it to the mid-west. 🙂 Shelley

  55. Angelina Murzi says

    it was such a treat seeing Scott in Santa Cruz singing and playing downtown on Pacific.. I thought he was just a kid playing on the street corner with an exceptional talent… And when I asked him his name, he humbly told me with no mention of fame or popularity… What a humble beautiful young man you are… My husband and I spent at least an hour there listening to you… We are still humming your songs… i wish all the best things in the world for you kid… God Bless you and hold you close Angelina and Peter Dunne

  56. Patty Lyons says

    forgot to sign in at Frett House last nite.. You guys are amazing (saw you originally at Cal tech.. )

  57. Mark says

    Scott, I have seen the Salty Suites play many times and I just had to write and say that last night’s show was the best ever. I mentioned it to Bob on my way out and he wholeheartedly agreed. Your vocals never sounded better (you must really be working hard on that), and your fiddle player was just amazing. Thanks, Mark

  58. Mel and Pat Anderson says

    We saw you in Victorville 8/13/2012, got your new C D . We are enjoying the music very much. Thank You for sharing your music with us

As an old guy, leanin’ back on the porch and watching your efforts , I can’t say how much work it’s been, but I can say that I really appreciate all that you all have done so far………. Thanks for the update. I’ll get some CD’s when you blaze through the Coffee Gallery later this month. Stay well and happy Brian

  60. Bernie & Theresa Niehus says

    Liked the show at O’side so much, i bought two CD’s. Hope to catch all of you again sometime soon. Enjoy as long as possible. Keith

  63. Salty Suites says

    Gotta say it… The Salty Suites love and appreciate all the fans of our music…Sincerely. We love all of you and how hard you spread the word. A flood begins with a single drop of rain!

  64. Merrill says

    My friends & I heard you at Cal Tech last Saturday evening. What a delightful group and a fun evening. We also had sushi before the show! We will no doubt be seeing you at The Coffee Gallery: Backstage in Altadena soon. Keep up the good work. Merrill

  65. Elizabeth Carlton Chase says

    So creatively rejuvenated and emotionally charged from an evening with Chelsea Williams and The Salty Suites. If you haven’t seen these geniuses, catch ’em soon. They’re going to be HUGE! ♥

  66. Donna Sweet says

    “It was a fun evening. You all have great energy on stage. The small venue allowed us to interact easily with sing alongs and an occasional question from the audience. Your combined musical talents made for a thoroughly entertaining time. I hope you have many more opportunities to perform and expand your fan base.”

  67. Ron Murray says

    The CD is great. Heard the band the first time at their recent performance at Abounding Grace Chapel in Tucson. Performance made us solid fans. Particularly enjoyed Chelsea’s part. Her voice is perfect and the expression during the song is something that few artists have.

  68. Theresa & Bernie Niehus says

    We watched both of your shows at the Temecula Bluegrass festival and enjoyed them. Such talented young musicians with a GREAT future ahead of you!!! Keep up the GOOD work and see you next time around….:) 🙂

  69. Tim Mahoney says

    I saw your performance yesterday in Temecula. Wow, I had goose bumps watching such talent. Fun to watch the bass player. Chelsea’s voice is so smooth and powerful hitting all the highs and lows. Scott’s mandolin playing reminds me of Bella Fleck with some Bob Dylan vocals. I design and build custom furniture and am also a luthier that likes to add inlay to my work. I went to the shows to get inspired on making my next guitar, maybe a baritone. Thank you for making my afternoon. Such talent. I’m sure I’ll be seeing more of your band in the future. Well done. Tim Mahoney

  70. Roger Grace says

    @ The Temecula Bluegrass Festival–Before I even rounded the corner of the hot dog restaurant where the makeshift “rainy day” stage had been set up, I heard the music and thought “Here we go!”. Stuck around for the second show at the theater where we could actually see and hear–so much individual talent beautifully blended in a well-crafted set. Thanks for an outstanding experience.

  71. Shannon Dillon says

    Hey! I saw you at cafe gratitude and told you twice how beautiful your music was!! You are seriously so talented! How can I stay up to date on your show dates? Do you frequently come to santa cruz? Let me know! Thanks and keep playing, your music is seriously inspirational! -Shannon

  72. KAT Moser says

    I LOVE that you put Dusty Boots Corral on here. Site looks good. I’m still looking for the Salty Suites sample CD and looking forward to buying the first Salty Suites CD. Love you guys (and gals).

  73. Jim Brock Photography says

    Enjoyed the show and look forward to following the band as you continue to build your audience. Big string fan and really enjoyed everyone’s playing, arrangements of older tunes, original comps. Chelsea’s joy and stage presence was especially contagious. http://www.eyeonthemusic.com

  74. Jill Angeline says

    Hello – Saw you in Santa Cruz today. Sending links of you, Salty Suites, etc. to all my bluegrass buddies in Indiana

  75. Deb Hopewell says

    Busking in Santa Cruz: Just wanted to tell you that Friday night was what I call one of those “unexpected music moments.” I heard something those few minutes that you can never try to find – it just happens. Sorry my husband and I hadn’t finished dinner sooner so I could have heard more. I watched some of your vids on youtube … John McEuen – why was I not at all surprised? Not sure if you have a mailing list but if so, would love to join it. I looked on your calendar, don’t see anything on it yet that’s closer to these parts, but if I find myself in SoCal for any reason, I’ll try to find a show. Best wishes in your pursuits (Chris Thile better watch out),

  76. Jessica Wilson says

    I still think you are really super good, but now I think you have competition for “best ever”.

  77. Jesse Hopkins says

    Awesome site! I am excited to hear that you guys have a CD coming out. Hope to pick one up this June at Huck Finn. Thanks, Jesse (Mini-Mando Guy)

  78. Annie says

    Nothing has ever made me stop & watch the SCV channel before tonight. You guys had me hooked! Love the name, sound, everything!

  79. Adrian says

    I was channel surfing and found you on SCV channel. your group is awesome. truly pickin and grinin. love you guys, keep it up

  80. Jim Davis says

    GREAT SHOW !!!! …. your acoustic rendition of The Hellecaster’s “Inspector Gadget” was phenomenal

  81. Mike Kosin says

    Who would have thunk that the mandolin was actually a lead guitar! Your harmonies were amazing and you left Paso Robles as the talk of the town. Thanks again for another great show and I look forward to working with you all again

  82. Jessica Padills says

    Thank you for a terrific performance yesterday! One of the pleasures of my job is introducing our patrons to terrific musicians and they had such wonderful feedback about Scott and were thrilled to hear him perform.

  83. Jessica Padilla says

  84. Jerry Johnston says

    I want to thank Scott for being at the Kings River Festival his performance was great as usual.

  85. Carla says

    Was at Pacific Garden Mall Santa Cruz today and there on the street corner Scott was playing his mandolin and singing bluegrass etc. What an unexpected joy. Scott, God blessed you w/an awsome gift and you are blessing people w/it. Thank You. Really liked your song Salty Eyes. I am definetly a fan….Can you tell?

  86. Susan says

    Hi Scott, I came across a video of you and Chelsea playing on YouTube and was absolutely amazed. I think the Salty Suites are a group of very talented individuals and I hope that you make it through Arizona someday so that I can see you play live! I am a mandolin player myself and have been inspired by your mandolin playing and Chelsea’s singing to get out and do some open mics and I would like to thank you for inspiring me!

  87. Taya Crayk-Bonde says

    “I saw a huge write up in the paper about Scott, and decided to check you guys out:) Utter talent..all of you. Btw, Hi Scott:D Keep everything up. -Taya”

  88. Douglas C. Brown says

    Was pleasantly surprised to discover the group at the Sawdust Art Festival August 5th. Nice mix of material and arrangements. At the end of the day, I explored YouTube for Chelsea’s solo videos/songs. This band is a PERFECT fit for her vocals, material and energy. You guys & ladies have to stick together…the sum is greater than the sum of the parts!

  89. Theresa Niehus says

    “You guys were AWESOME up in Big Bear…..see you in Laguna Beach….we are hooked on you now….:) :)”

  90. Linda Richards says

    pls put us on your mailing list. We heard you at Big Bear and are very excited to follow you! thx

  91. Caroline Tandy Quintanilla says

    “You guys were awesome last night! Thanks for coming up the mountain for us.”

  92. Tom Schwartz says

    Saw the band on Santa Clarita tv last now and I was blown away. I am going to come see you guys live. Just fantastic music. Thanks.

  93. Susie Laio says

    Your group was Soooo great at El Dorado Park Nature Center. Glad we’ve discovered you!

  94. Glenn & Kirstin Tidwell says

  95. William Bulow says

    Hi, I really love what your are doing. It is absolutly amazing! I am looking forward hearing more from you and your Salty Suites and I hope you will have the opportunity to come visit Sweden in a future not far from now. Keep up the good work, it is really inspiring!

  96. Bob Henderson says

    Unreal night at Zoey’s in Ventura! The Salty Suites pulled out all the stops and played for almost 2 hours! Oops – that should’ve said “almost 3 hours!

  97. Paul Barnes says

    Great to see your new band. I hope to be visiting Santa Fe some time this year. If I do I will try and catch up with you at a show. Best for the Future The Barnes Familiy

  98. The Salty Suites Band says

    Thanks for the nice comments, we all had a great time sharing the music with everyone at topanga! Thanks for listening!

  99. Heather Matthews Holst says

    You guys were AMAZING!!! A very bright future for all of you, I am sure!! :O)

  100. Shemanski 5 says

    You guys were great at the Topanga fest yesterday! Can’t wait til you get a CD out!

  101. Bob Henderson says

    Great show, great day, stayed until the end. Looked for you and Mimi; sorry we missed you! We saw a guy test-driving a mando at one of the vendors. His head was down so we couldn’t see his face. Wendy said “This guy is pretty good.” I just …smiled and told her “Duh, that’s Scott!” (His girlfriend was standing there too – that was another clue!) I wish Paramount Ranch would hold an event like that quarterly, if not monthly!

  102. Wendy Henderson says

    “Great Show!! We thouroughly enjoyed them! Can’t wait until next weekend at Paramount!”

  103. Bill and Joanna Wright says

    Tell Scott I love his new song It’s really great. Blood Whiskey Or Wine! Can’t wait till it’s out !!!!!!

  104. Brian Greenlee says

    Fun Fun Real Music! Thanks for so much enjoyment!. See you at Calico and wherever else I can get when you guys play.

  105. PopHorizonScanner says

    Great work Chelsea, Scott, Elaine and Chuck! I’d like to see the Salty Suites perform one day. I saw Scott and Chuck with Nathan McEuen last week – they were FANTASTIC! I haven’t had the chance yet to see Chelsea but I’m a big aficionado of her @ YouTube.

  106. Melissa Hassler says

    I really enjoyed seeing you perform in Newhall in October at the Santa Clarita Street Art Festival! What incredible talent! I particularly loved hearing Scott play the “fiddle tunes” on Mandolin! More, please!!!

  107. Steve says

    Thanks for your words and thank you for all the great YouTubes of Scott and Nathan and company. I was so impressed with them, their musical style and their musicianship at the Huck Finn Jubilee. Before I went there, a friend of mine also had just introduced me to Chelsea Williams’ music and, at Huck Finn, I hadn’t yet made the connection, until driving away from Victorville with Scrapbook Sessions playing in my car. Scott is the focal point of some excellent music being made that, as a Californian, makes me truly proud. I didn’t realize the extent to which California is really an outstanding Bluegrass state with outstanding young talent. (I’m very impressed with the Tuttles and AJ Lee, too). BTW I sent a copy of Scrapbook Sessions (signed by Nathan, Scott and Chuck) to a Dutch musician that I follow named Bertolf Lentink – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5nvCE_yE1Y He really enjoyed it and said he wants to make a Bluegrass-inspired record one day. Anyhow… it’s exciting music. Keep up with the outstanding YouTubes – I really enjoy them! My favorite is the gig you captured at the Castoro Cellars in June 2009. What an enjoyable evening that must have been! All the best, ~Steve

  108. Bill Heath says

    My family recently saw you in Julian , Ca. at the 40th Annual Bluegrass Festival there. You and your group were tremendous. Each one of the four of you brought a magic and energy to the stage that collectively was superb. In our discussions with your lead singer and bass player, we were told that you would be in Southern Ca. at least 2-3 more times this year. We want to plan on attending your concerts. Please pass on any info regarding your future engagements so we, in turn, may make arrangements to see you. When will you all be releasing a CD? Again, please let us know. Scott, We wish you all the success possible. You are an unbelievable talent. Take Care. Sincere Regards, Bill

  109. Ellie May says

    Those lucky enough to come to your show in Tucson at the Abounding Grace Sanctuary tonight enjoyed a real treat. I wish you nothing but the best of luck in continuing your musical journey. You are incredible and inspiring!

  110. Roy & Margaret Pottenger says

    Just wanted to let you know how much everyone truly enjoyed your music at our Easter get together in Dana Point. Every from Roy’s 90 year old mom down to the our friend’s high school senior have takled about what a true enjoyment your music was. It’s a music that transceends all barriers. You sparkle!

  113. Paul Barnes UK says

    Happy 18th Birthday Scotty. Have a good one Sir. Kind regards to all of the family. Sincerely Paul Barnes

  114. David Jones says

    I’d pay good hard earned money just to hear you play “Red Haired Boy” as part of the soundtrack music for the remake of the film True Grit. But who would I contact about that? Haven’t got a clue. But, I’m feelin your vibe when you play, son. Hope to hear you play live someday.

  115. Geri Ghiselin says

    Loved your show and workshop yesterday at the Huck Finn Festival. I’d like to know when you and Nathan are in the OC. Each of you are so talented!

  116. Sandi says

    Just heard you for the first time in Calico, fantastic! I see you’re coming to Reno and will get the rest of my friends to come and listen!

  117. Sandy Brown says

    Scott, I heard the Nathan McCuen Band in Hanford on January 30. Wow. We came to see the Grascals and came away with three of your CDs. I have been listening to them ever since. You are a great young talent. blessings to you and your parents.

  118. Tony Siegl says

    Scott, I met you at the Pioneer Town show on Thursday night. You kicked some serious ass, I would love to work with you in the future.

  119. Becky I. says

    God Bless you, your parents and the spirits that move us all, for the beautiful music you make. You are truly an inspiration to those that have lost the music that breaths life into our souls and moves our hearts. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity (for the second time)to sit in awe in the front row as you and Nathan performed at Arcadia High school in Phoenix, Arizona. I hope the low number attending the last performance does not deter you from ever coming back to our school. I am so grateful to have been touched by your music that I promise to make an effort of my own to make sure every seat is filled next time you agree to perform at our school. Thank you.

  120. Vickie McCalley says

    Hey Scott- Enjoyed the show at the Farris Theatre in Richmond, MO last Saturday. What an amazing concert! Love the CD’s. The offer of adoption still stands. Safe travels-Vickie McCalley

  121. Jill Pence says

    Hi Scott, My family caught your show at the Farris Theater in Richmond, MO. We enjoyed your music. My children were the youngest people in the audience and bought three CD’s. Thank you for carrying on the tradition of great Bluegrass music. I hope you come back to our community for another show! Jill Pence and family

  122. Rebecca says

    It was great to meet up again with Scott, Nathan, and Kate in Nashville and have them stay at the house. It is very refreshing to know people actively pursuing a genuine talent and not necessarily being slaves to the daily cookie-cutter grind. Their presence is contagious and genuine. I look forward to seeing them again. Rebecca

  123. Gordon Baker says

    Just saw your show in Norman, OK tonight. Glad to see some young guns to carry on what John and the Dirt Band started,and also good to see the great originals you are crafting.

  124. Arayna Fisher says

    Wow,oh wow! I saw Scott this past weekend and was amazed. I’m thinkin’ the next Johnny Lang has just arrived! You’re terrific Scott. Loved the show and hope to see you again soon.

  125. Will Hoenig says

  143. The Barnes Family says

    Scott, I have just read your Dad’s comment about your room. If you and your band came to England to play, you deserve to be put up in a 5 Star Hotel. Something which matches your playing I think they have maids to clean rooms !!

  144. Karen says

    Was looking for music by Evan Marshall and John Marshall. Found some neat stuff with Evan and Scott, and enjoyed it very much. We’ll try to catch one of your performances next summer when we are on our home leave. (We are Californians living in Bangladesh.) Not much Blue Grass music here.

  145. Andrew Dad Gates says

    Nice site…… If I do say so myself. Keep on reaching for your dreams man, oh…. and clean your room.
