Reviews of Marilyn Maye:
+ Palm Beach Daily News: "The island grew a little brighter as songstress Marilyn Maye, an irrepressible ray of sunshine, blew into town and took over the Royal Room at The Colony… Maye instantly set the scene for the evening, creating a party atmosphere with a group of freshly minted friends who came ready to have a good time… (Maye has a) thoroughly engaging presence that makes every song her own in a polished delivery that appears effortless. She drives home every heartfelt note and leaves the audience grinning from ear to ear
+ Stephen Holden in The New York Times: “Ms. Maye, who bounded onto the stage like a young woman in a hurry, continues to defy the laws of nature.
