Betty Rydell has such an exciting show. She plays a variety of instruments with talent. She sings different styles of songs: some from the past, some new. This is a very fast moving show. Her husband Ed joins in the fun. Be sure to see this show: You will enjoy it.

Being in the audience of the Betty Rydell show was such a fun time filled with music and laughs. Betty is a great entertainer. She sings wonderfully, even yodeling, plays her instruments masterfully with guitar picking the Wildwood Flower, to mandolin medleys of Dr. Zhivago, Zorba the Greek and more. The music combined with, comedy brought the audience to their feet with hilarious song
renditions like Patsy Cline's She's Got You. The music and comedy continued on with her husband Ed with some very humorous numbers. The crowd-pleasing variety continued on with songs by Betty's granddaughter Randi Rae. When all three sang together on songs such as an Everly Brothers medley, the harmonies were so tight and moving that the audience applause seemed to go on and on. For myself, and the audience of young and old alike, it was an experience that had everyone smiling ear to ear. What a delightful show this was to see.

Betty Rydell is a very talented and excellent performer. She plays several instruments and good at them all. Have had the pleasure of watching her perform in the Rio Grande Valley where she has won many awards. Betty is a great person along with her husband who is a comedian and part of her show. You will not be disappointed seeing them perform country, gospel, oldies just good old

Dear Betty: It was one wonderful week end well spent, the group was super, not only are you a beautiful person and with the personal touch you contribute to the customers, makes it all down home style ... when you came back for the final show on Friday night with the studded white jean out-fit and the turquoise jewelry brought a few recent memories of a special honey bun down in good ole Nashville, Tennessee and when you came off the band stand and danced with me, this was one great compliment and on Saturday night, thanks for every thing. Love to "yalol" From the Blue eyes, Blode, "Wild Man".

We were especially impressed and pleased with your final number which included The Pledge of Allegiance. Our country is in need of all the loyalty and patriotism we can show. Best wishes and
