“Patti Shaffner is riveting on stage. Her connection with the audience, her charisma and her seemingly limitless vocal abilities are captivating. Patti is a consummate songwriter, true artist and a musician’s musician - an utter delight. I can’t wait till she’s on our stage again!”

- Sandra Thompson Executive Director, The Acorn

SHE HAS OPENED FOR THE LEGENDARY MICHAEL SMITH,DAN NAVARRO AND SPECIAL CONSENSUS BLUEGRASS BAND. HER SONGWRITING HAS GARNERED NUMEROUS AWARDS including 1st in The Great American song contest - 2015.

"Patti Shaffner, who was the first runner-up, shook up the entire theater with her jazz singing style and lyrics. One would only hope to see this type of talent at the Carlyle (or onstage in any venue). Shaffner sang and scatted in her second song, which really brought down the house. All were awed with her diverse artistry, not only in song, but in her grand, slick, professional, uninhibited and natural stage presence."
