Return to a time when the lyric and melody were the essence of a song as you take this entertaining and nostalgic musical journey with Pat Surface.
Reminisce to old favorites that will bring back memories of bell bottoms, Woodstock, and when gas was 28 cents a gallon! Join Pat as he revisits these timeless songs...and groove to them again. Enjoy the music of: John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot, Dan Fogelberg, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jim Croce, Harry Chapin, Leonard Cohen, James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, The Eagles, America, (and more). These are our classics – lyrics and melodies that are imbedded in our DNA…songs we know so well we are compelled to sing-a-long to them.
A Pat Surface show is a memorable, entertaining, and nostalgic journey back in time to the popular, classic songs of the 60s and 70s (and reaching back into the 50s). But, it is also a surprising and interactive performance event that includes sing-a-longs, stories, humor...and segments like "Name That Tune" with prizes.
Pat is a special entertainer - he puts on a show and is not itinerant. People love him, his voice, and the great songs he sings - songs they know and miss hearing. He is different from many performers in that he does not sing to tracks downloaded from the internet. Pat's 'Lets Dance' show features great musicians behind him on tracks that he has produced and recorded.The musicians that you hear behind Pat in these recordings are our Grammy Award-winning band, The Boundary Water Boys (link below). Pat is a great musician, and people find it refreshing that his music is what they frequently call 'real not canned' (see Comments below).
And check out Pat and Donna's 'dynamic duo' show - Remember When - The Music That Underscored Our Lives - with iconic songs punctuated with back-stories that blast you to the past, Donna's compelling Performance Art In Sign Language (see Notes below), and other fun surprises.
Dinner and a show? Many venues organize a dinner gathering followed by our Remember When show (above). We can add music videos (link below under Notes).

To Fellow Country Club Managers ~
It is with ease that I write about Pat Surface...as he is such a pleasure to work with. Pat performs at festivals up and down both coasts of Florida. It was at one of these festivals that I heard him, and knew he would be a good match for country club entertaining. He is always professional and well-prepared. His incredible adaptability ensures his music is always enjoyable and never overwhelming. Our members love him. We look forward to continuing our relationship with him in the future.

Pat and Donna - I must tell you of the reaction I got, about your performance, from the fifty guests at our party at the club this past weekend. I can't recall a party where everyone went on and on about how much fun they had. I must have gotten an e-mail from every couple, all expressing the same thoughts. The sing alongs, the 'Name That Tune' game (with our love beads prizes), and the fantastic music (with your incredible Boundary Water Boys band tracks!) that had us dancing - all contributed to making it so special. Our sincerest thanks...

Pat Surface was a huge hit in Detroit Lakes! Our audience loved hearing their favorite songs from the '60s and '70s. Pat Surface's voice is rich and beautiful, and his entire show is woven with great songs and fun doses of humor to make for a wonderful musical journey.

Pat and Donna did an awesome job here at Cloverleaf. Everyone loved it - we heard 'best show of the season' repeatedly. Unique and refreshing. And best of all - Pat's is REAL music - that HE is peforming. Not canned back-up like we have seen and heard so often. Love it.

Lucius Woods Performing Arts Center has twice engaged Pat and Donna Surface, who delivered a wonderful nostalgic 60s-70s show with the memorable music of artists such as Jim Croce, John Denver and Gordon Lightfoot. Pat's fluent vocals resonates with audiences! Donna is mesmerizing. Working with these talented performers is a joy.

One of our members originally heard Pat sing at an art festival in Naples, Fl. His voice was so outstanding and he was so impressed he bought some CDs and booked him for a private party at our Fireside Room at the Bonita Bay Country Club. Pat was most impressive with his musical talent, his interaction with the guests, and a selection of songs our membership know and love.
The reaction of the guests was to rave to club management about this talented man and to strongly urge us to hire him for performances at the club.This has transpired and his continued performances here have resulted in his being booked for the concert series here at Bonita Bay. Along with this, members have found him to be the perfect entertainment for private parties and house concerts.

Pat and Donna's show Remember When is a unique, entertaining, refreshing and interactive event. Our members loved it and we have booked them again. A perfect evening's entertainment for residents and members of any community and club. Book them.

When our committee saw Pat and Donna at a showcase, we all gave them 10s and booked them to perform at our community. Their show was wonderful. Our residents said it was the best show we've brought to them. Funny, fun, great familiar music - lots of sing-a-longs. And Donna's contribution was unique and very touching and entertaining. We want to bring them back (and it is our policy to never do that - but our residents have spoken).
~ Lake Region Village - Haines City, FL
Pat and Donna's show is like nothing else we have ever booked in our community. It is a SHOW with our favorite music and humor and stories that took us back. Pat's singing is amazing, and Donna's signing is riveting. And together they are a funny and relatable married couple who we all got to know and love.
~ Village Green - Vero Beach, FL
It was our pleasure and a privilege to meet you both. We loved the show. We feel that having folks like you touch our lives in such a positive way, is certainly a blessing. We are really looking forward to your return engagement.
