"Dunrovin Ranch has had Charla out for musical presentations on a number of different occasions, and we could not be more pleased with her performances. She and her husband assistant, Doug, are easy going, always prompt, and go the extra mile to ensure that all of the electronic equipment is working - and in our case that also means working for our online audience. Charla's music always fits the occasion as she has a large repertoire. Best of all, she is so warm responsive to her audience. We look forward to having her back often."

"Charla was a joy to work with for our recent fundraising event. From the very beginning of the process she asked the right questions and understood what we were looking for. The night of the event she delivered, playing for our crowd during the cocktail hour. We received many compliments of how much Charla’s music and presence added to our event; it truly brought our largest fundraiser of the year to a whole new, professional level. In addition to being extremely talented, Charla was kind, compassionate and truly cared not only about her performance, but the cause itself. We would love to work with her again in the future!"

  

Ravalli County Museum

“Charla Bauman has been a fan favorite for our evening’s events for several years. Her range of musical styles delights our audiences and she has built a following of dedicated spectators in our community. 

She engages with her listeners and can instill in them a sense of expectation – as they wait to hear the next medley. Her guitar is a perfect accompaniment to her melodies and our guests can sit back, take it all in, and enjoy the harmony she creates. We look forward to a long relationship with Ms. Bauman and have already begun marketing her next event with us; we know it will be a crowd pleaser.”

COMMUNITY EVENTS

 Stevensville Civic Club Garden Party

"Charla performed for us at the annual Garden Party, an award ceremony for outstanding citizens, as part of Stevensville's largest event, the Creamery Picnic. Charla arrived with ample time to set up, she was flexible with our front porch setting and independently took care of all of her needs. We didn't have to worry about her at all. Her music was perfect for our venue of an outdoor garden party with over 100 attendees; the music and vocals was soft and pleasant, loud enough to be heard but not so loud that it would interfere with conversations. All in all, it was a successful experience enjoyed by all, with many compliments following about Charla and her music. We would definitely ask her again to perform."

ART EXHIBITS/SHOWS

Missouri Falls Fine Art Show and Sale

"For the past couple years Charla has played at the art reception for the Missouri Falls Fine Art Show and Sale held during Western Art Week in Great Falls. Her style of music is an added bonus to the show and fits the venue at the History Museum perfectly. The artists love how Charla's music enhances the show instead of being a distraction from the art. Her repertoire includes a variety of music, and Charla knows just what songs fit the occasion and when to sing them. It has been a pleasure having her be a part of the MFFA Show and Sale." 

Leslie Kesler, Choteau, MT
