Some comments from folks who have heard Chris play

What a blessing it was to experience your band on such a day in such a setting….THANK YOU!

-Susan B, a concert attendee at performance of Chris Klich Jazz Quintet on Saturday, April 29th, 2017 at San Dieguito Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Chris: I wanted to thank you and Quintet for the wonderful music on Saturday! Those who attended were so enthusiastic & I know talking it up to friends, because Sunday morning folks came up to me hoping you would come back & saying they would surely attend next time. We will see if this can be arranged for next year. I have submitted the short article (see below) for publication in our newsletter, website, etc. And I’ve also attached some photos of event. Anyway, thanks again to you and other musicians for sharing your time and considerable talent with us! Best, Vicky

Beautiful Evening with Wonderful Music

Our Sunset Jazz Concert with the Chris Klich Quintet was a special treat. The experience was beautifully expressed by Suzie Behr … “Sitting in the amphitheater in the late afternoon with a glass of wine, watching the sun play on the tops of the trees, surrounded by good friends and listening to truly outstanding music. It just doesn’t get any better than this.” We even had folks dancing in the aisles! And it was a special treat to hear Chris’ memories of UUFSD, as his Mother was a founding member & he was married in the amphitheater. Thanks to all who came to enjoy the concert & also to the many volunteers who contributed their time & energy. Your attendance and support make these UUFSD musical events possible. Gratefully, Vicky Newman, Concert Coordinator

Dear Chris,

 Thank you so much for helping make Will & Ambers wedding so beautiful.  You both were great…everyone loved your music!

I am mailing the check today.  I can send all to Dave or mail your part directly to me if you send me your mailing address.

Thanks again so much!


Adding Klich to a song is like adding cayenne pepper to any stew. it just brings out that flavor. His flute playing is silky, sumptuous and charming enough to tame the most aggressive viper. He’ll be remembered as one the greats because of his performance on the Vibe CD.  -SonicHillcom

We caught your first 2 sets at Circle of Fifths Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed it.  San Diego is lucky to have you (including wonderful Laura) to remind us of what really good music sounds like. We have also seen you at the Chula Vista East Lake Trader Joe’s shopping center the last 2 summers.

I am excited that a fantastic Jazz band, the Chris Klich Jazz Quintet is back at Coyote this Sunday, 5pm to 9pm  after about a year absence.  This is one of the best jazz bands I have ever seen.  I am hoping they get a good turnout and become a monthly band at the Coyote once more …If you like true jazz and standards you will love this band.

 Man, you is BAAD!  Caught your act on Inside Jazz.  A reed man myself (tho’ no great shakes) and can appreciate a cat who lays it down straight-ahead yet pushes the envelope.

I do a service to the local jazz community here, http://www,honolulujazzscene.net, and if you’re ever in town, look me up.

Wow, Chris Klich, do your lungs extend into your legs?

My son and I saw your quintet at Claire de Lune tonight, and we’re both impressed with your controlled dynamics and lengthy phrases! Plus you are wonderfully supportive of your band mates. Thank you for your music.

I thought you and the band did a great job at our wedding Apr 22, 2006. I wanted to add you to my LinkedIn contacts! -Henry

Dear Chris:

Just a quick note to say thank you! I think your trio was excellent! I

heard lots of good feedback on the music. Just the right feeling as we came

into the room, and a seemless merging of spoken program with dancing

afterwards. And your Swedish waltzes had a perfect waltz beat! You noticed

how many actually were up on the dance floor for a while! It looked a lot

more festive than last year, when there was no live orchestra.

I’ll definitely recommend that BIOCOM use your group again.

Thank you again!

Hi Chris, Good to visit with you. Your selection of songs is right up our

alley for the easy listening portion of our dinner show. You can play! John


Great to see you, again, last week.  Our apologies that we had to leave early, but my beloved was both tuckered-out from her 60-hour week and wanted to get rested before singing in our church choir on Sunday morning.

But, this can’t wait . . . your new CD is ONLY AWESOME!  And yes, we know that we’re SHOUTING!!!



Dear Chris,

Thank you so much for everything you did for Mercy Hospital.  We loved your group at the patron party and the Ball, and the CDs are wonderful- you have made a huge difference!

Thanks again, Suzanne and Lindsey

Greetings Chris!

Our Summer Music Series just ended.  I wish to say an enthusiastic thank you to you, Laura Preble, and the members of the Chris Klich Jazz Quintet!  The North Park Community Association thoroughly enjoyed your performance at Bird Park.

The music panel had a collection of 90 promotional packages to select from.  There is so much fine local talent but it was our sincerest wish that your band would be available and willing to perform.

It felt so good to be able to offer the sound that you have to the Bird Park audience.  Your interpretation of jazz standards is perfection but particularly so for a summer venue outside with all generations of listeners.  Many expressed their thanks for Laura’s vocal renditions after the show.

Sorry that our sound system wasn’t quite as tight as I expected, but even so, you were able to deal with that and maintain your professional focus.  It was a pleasure working with you and I wish you continued success.

Re: Harding-Peterson wedding 6-26-04

Great to hear from you Chris!!  You guys rocked at the reception and we heard a lot of positive feedback about it.

Krista and I are so happy to hear about your new gigs!  We’ve been spreading the good word about Chris Klich to all our friends and coworkers for quite awhile, so it’s good to hear it’s paying off for you guys.  Krista just referred someone yesterday, so hopefully you’ll get a call for another wedding gig!  J
