Critic's say...

Karen is clearly a singer with performance credentials to back up her pipes and knows how to dramatize a song without lapsing into melodrama. She has a robust voice with her own distinct colors.
David Dupont - Cadence Magazine

Karen has a big, warm clear sound that has a sultry quality in her upbeat swing interpretations. Her performance shows she has considerable scat capabilities.
Susan L Pena - Reading Eagle

Karen possesses a lovely, throaty alto voice that she employs to great effect communicating the meaning of the lyrics she sings. One feels that she has lived the emotions she sings.
Michael Caruso - Chestnut Hill paper

Karen, is a sultry alto with a style reminiscent of big band giants like Billie Holliday
Bruce G. - Band leader

'A classy, professional singer - great look, great arrangements, and... a sweet vocal style!'
Bob Egan - Bob Egan Entertainment and Cabaret at Odette's

An anonymous patron states 'Madame, your voice could separate a rich man from his wealth, and comfort the poor'

If you are looking for a sophisticated sound and truly appreciate the finer things in music, then KAW Entertainment,LLC is the right choice.

Karen and her band were so professional and I knew from my conversation with Karen I would not have to worry--and I didn't!! Karen has a beautiful voice and the band was just wonderful. Their sound wasn't overpowering and you could still maintain a conversation and listen to their beautiful sound at the same time. Mostly everyone remarked at how typically you have to leave the room to have a conversation with people at your table but with Karen Wilhelm and her group everyone stayed seated or on the dance floor and it was perfect!! I would invite Karen to perform and would be happy to listen to their classic sound once again! Celeste Spadaccini

We were very pleased with Karen Wilhelm and her group of musicians. They set an elegant and sophisticated mood for our daughter's wedding, which is exactly what she wanted. Their repertoire was extensive, and Karen made sure to consult the bride for her playlist choices. We would definitely recommend Karen to anyone who asked.
