"I cannot remember the last time I was overcome with emotion through song. Patti Shaffner's CD 'Everything Changes - again' started to raise goose bumps on my arms and my feet began to tap."
- Janis Moore, Post-Tribune
"Having had the pleasure of knowing and playing piano with Patti of the past several years, I can vouch for the fact that she is one of the area's top Jazz Vocalists. Her love for the music shows in her outstanding interpretations of the songs of others and in the singing of her own compositions."
- Billy Foster, Professer of Music Emeritus and Professional Musician
"In addition to being a fine singer, Ms Shaffner is a talented composer. Her compositions exhibit a blend of witty lyrics and funky soulfulness that makes them both entertaining and stimulating to listen to."
- Darrell Tidaback, Professor of Music, Notre Dame
"Patti, your voice is killer!!! I really enjoyed listening to you, Buddy, and Waz together! Smokin'! I thought the next thing that was going to happen was the stage going up in flames!"
