“Ron Nicolai is an outstanding singer, guitarist and entertainer, who has a carefully crafted performance which appeals to all age groups. I find him extremely likeable and that he possesses a great audience rapport.” – Ivan Hubbard, Watstein/Hubbard Entertainment Agency
“Nicolai displayed a wide range of styles…quiet ballads mix with solid rave-ups and only a quick guitar change breaks the action. His original songs are brisk and tight, with a feel for that AM radio sound that breeds success.” – Jim Zebora, Meriden Record-Journal, Ct.
