"Marie-Josee Dandeneau is the artist we all seek: eclectic, energetic, with a fresh approach to performing. On stage, one is immediately struck by her brilliant technique, (so rarely) accompanied by intuitive, musical sensitivity. A super-talented musician and all-round nice girl. Five stars!". Canada should be proud.” (Adele-Marina Wilding, Award-winning singer/songwriter/pianist, UK, 2009)

"Her unique combination of fretless, fretted and upright bass has allowed her to carve a unique identity in a competitive market. I highly recommend Marie-Josee to you as a brilliant and creative professional musician who inspires artists and audiences whenever she plays!" (Rik Leaf, singer/songwriter/Producer, Winnipeg, 2009)

With her fretless bass playing, she produces characteristic sounds on stage that would leaves you an unforgettable impression…“ (Holland Newspaper Nausikaä de Blaauw, De Groene Zwaan, Holland, Dec 2008)

Marie-Josee is a one of a kind musician - multi talented that has the ability to learn other people’s songs precisely and quickly and she knows how to entertain a crowd, with high energy and movement. Her bass skills out-do any other bass player I have personally played with or seen and heard.“ (Toby, singer/songwriter, Award-winning WA Blues & Roots, Australia, Nov 2008)

“I was particularly impressed with bassist, Marie-Josée Dandeneau. The most physically striking member of the band is the de facto musical leader, boldly outlining the song’s strong melody lines with some hard-grooving bass licks…Marie-Josée Dandeneau’s dazzling display on the introspective “The Angels Tell Her” were easily worth the bargain admission price alone.” (journalist John Jane, Vancouver Festival, July 2008)

“It was a love at first sound when the audience was introduced to Toby Beard joined by top Canadian upright bass player, Marie-Josée Dandeneau, who delivered a high-energy performances during The Big Time Out Festival.”(Jules S. Xavier Editor, Cumberland, BC, Aug 2007)
