"I love that sound of well-produced, orchestrated music such as The Carpenters and Neil Diamond from the 1970's.  Ken is one of those rare people who has that ability to put it all together."  Marv Machura

"The concert ranks right up there with concerts we've seen by Eric Clapton, Elton John and Jethro Tull.  If you get a chance to catch a Symphonic Rock Evolution concert, drop everything and go!"  Don Klepp

"Ken Hartfield, your arrangements are amazing and so are the musicians, the highest calibre, congratulations my friend, it was great."  Robert Piche

"Ken is a brilliant performer, both as an accomplished musician and as a powerful and emotive baritone singer.  He is an experienced and creative producer and an amazing arranger.  His ability to envision orchestral arrangements for classic rock anthems that contain the complete integrity of the original song, while making you feel like you are hearing it for the very first time, is not only genius, it is pure magic."  Randy Zahara, former Manager of the Kelowna Community Theatre.
