"My wife and I are the couple that sat at your families table at the Nook while watching Matthew Curry, and then came to watch You and the Great Band behind you last night. Absolutly the right tone, tune, song, and set. Amazing!!!I just wanted
to drop by and say....Ma & Pa better be holding hands very tight. My gosh, there is NOT a doubt in my mind y'all are going for a big big ride very soon. I watched George Straight practice in the garage of a duplex down in San Marcos years ago
and we KNEW he was gonna leave town for stardom soon. YOU are my next pic! Remember, Rod & Donna said so!!"
We really enjoyed the band on Saturday night at Bradtoberfest! You have an amazing voice! Keep it going - you will go far. ---Melanie McLewin
Sam, you were awesome last night your musical talent and stage presence/personality truly are a gift.
"Hi, I was at Bella's in Celina, Ohio when you and your daughter were there and you two were amazing! Have you heard of reverbnation.com? It's a site where local talent can be discovered. Your daughter blew me away with her rendition of Hallelujah. I would love to have a recorded version of that song! God Bless and keep striving because you two are special!!
What were you doing at the age of 12?
Probably playing with a little plastic bucket making sand castles. There is a special young lady that performed last night at the Shady Nook Pub that is just a little different than most kids her age. Samantha Rae Duquette will bring her talents to The Castle Theatre tonight! I remember the first time she came with her Mom and Dad to The Nook for a Drew and Joe show. She was politely sitting at the table with her mom watching when they called her up to sing. I thought "This should be cute...probably gonna sing The wheels on the bus go round and round or something like that "
Samantha got up there and blew everyone away with her voice and stage presence. The girl covers quite a range of genres also. Anywhere from Michael Jackson to Stevie Ray Vaughan. One of her favorite songs is "Whipping Post".....Anyone that has some Allman Brothers in them is alright by me. Big things come in small packages and the sky has no limit for this young lady!!!
