Christmas Dance at Derest Aire Resort 2018
Annette has a powerful voice, one of the best female singers I have ever heard, and manages the electronic sound tracks while Calvin does an excellent job in playing lead guitar singing lead vocals and harmonizing. The duo played for our Dec 7, 2018 Xmas party-dance and, from all reports, had the attendees on the dance floor the whole night( well received by all). Annette also does some tape dancing, which the audience loved. Annette and Calvin, for the last 15 or so years, have regularly performed in the British Columbia, Canada area. In the meantime, you can get a feel of what the Kissing Cosens(stage name) have to offer on their website KissingCosens.ca. I am informing you of this duo because I am convinced you will enjoy their talents as I have.

I truly enjoy listening to Annette’s sing. She has a very big voice for such a little lady. You rock...
The Perfect Wedding Reception
Over the past couple years my wife and I eagerly, yet nervously, awaited our wedding day. The reception, so much to plan, so many questions, all with difficult answers. "What should the menu be?", "How should we decorate?, What's our theme?", and on and on. Over the months prior we struggled with answers to most of these questions. Wanting the day to be perfect for ourselves, but also for our friends and family. The one thing we didn't struggle with at all was our choice in entertainment. We both had a love for live bands and karaoke. Our call to the Kissing Cosens was one we felt would please most of our guests. To our amazement the dance floor filled quickly and stayed full all night. The third singer of the night was a 9 year old who sang AC/DC's Thunderstruck and then followed by a 70 year old elder who sang her favorite country ballad. The Kissing Cosens, Calvin & Annette performed an amazing rendition of YMCA & Mustang Sally, among their well thought out sets. To make the show complete they added awesome background vocals and wicked guitar support.
Their song choices for the recorded music was tremendous and neither hard rock fan nor cowboy left dissappointed. Their prices compare to any reasonable DJ service and came well under any live band options. On a night that bride & groom should never forget, and will forever be joyously remembered by a whole community. The night was flawless and we feel strongly that, that was purely a reflection of the fun that everyone was having. One word "Perfect".

Our experience with Annette & Calvin has always been great.
They are true performers displaying the same energy and enthusiasm whether we have 10 customers or 200.
We've tried other karaoke providers and every time our customers "demand" Annette & Calvin come back. They have a higher level of talent and variety that engages and entertains people beyond expectations.
We are pleased and confident to provide our customers with a superior entertainment experience by hiring the Kissing Cosens!
Re: Kissing Cosens Karaoke
Annette & Calvin have provided Karaoke entertainment for us for 11 years, on Thursday nights during the summer and Saturday Nights during the off season.
They consistently provided good entertainment for our customers. They have a wide selection of music available for the singers and a very good sound system.
They always arrive on time to do their shows. They work well in the pub environment and deal with our patrons in a professional manner.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Annette & Calvin Cosens to provide you with karaoke entertainment.

Salmon Arm New Year's Eve Centennial Extravag
Annette & Calvin were very detailed with the entertainment arrangements, from lighting to choice of prizes. The Extravaganza was a very successful family event, with extremely positive feedback from many of the 1.050 attendees. The Kissing Cosens performed a variety of music that was enjoyed by everyone, including the New Year's song for different provinces. I was also impressed with how well they were able to improvise when plans changed throughout the evening; they were obviously very well organized as they were able to keep the evening moving from start to finish without pause.
I was also pleased with how the Kissing Cosens were able to facilitate the local musicians to play together on the main stage.
Overall, I would strongly recommend the Kissing Cosens as an entertainer or an Entertainment Coordinator for future events.

They were very professional in their approach to customer satisfaction, which made my job much easier. They were able to handle the crowd very well, adapting to the "ebb and flow" of customer interests. I would have no qualms regarding using their services at anytime in the future.
