Leisure Manager - Hilton Coylumbridge
During her time at the Hilton Coylumbridge we have received many positive comments about the entertainment she provides the hotel both from guests and staff alike. Marilyn’s time keeping is very good with her being all set up and ready to perform in advance of the advertised time. Unlike other entertainers Marilyn goes out of her way to ensure that everyone is having a great time from adults to children, all audiences enjoy her performing. To me it is clear that Marilyn see’s her job as a passion. Marilyn has always been willing to adapt to our needs as a business and was always willing to work additional nights if any other entertainers were to cancel at last minute. I think Marilyn performs very well and can adapt to suit a wide range of crowds. It was a pleasure working with Marilyn and I hope that our paths may cross again in the future.
“Saw Marilyn for the first time in the Gartsherrie club in Coatbridge last night Marilyn's stage show is absolutely fantastic and her inter-action with the people there was brilliant. Fantastic night enjoyed by all thank you Marilyn”

“Marilyn is an extremely talented, confident and capable singer who not only has a versatile tone and range, but has the stagecraft to gage the mood of an audience and engage them into the experience . Vocally, Marilyn can cover Pop to Rock and on into Blues, Jazz and Gospel, being able to add a richness of velvety tone over an emotive heart felt core, hitting the money notes with interest. Being a professional singer since she left school, she knows the craft inside-out, and has earned her brownie badges in bands, backing, solo, and in the studio. Venue wise she has dealt with everything from the Club and Camp circuit to the residency at the prestigious Anassa hotel Cyprus.” September 27, 2012
