What are the audiences saying about Max Donaldson...?

...letter from JACK IMEL -

Jack Imel Max,

I want you to know how much I enjoyed your recent presentation of "Stories Under the Stones." I can sum it up with one word...."Great!"

You certainly had the attention of your audience, and they really loved it. I can't believe how fast the time went. I wanted to hear more of your wonderful stories.

As my ex-boss Lawrence Welk would have said: "A-Wunderful, A-Wunderful!"

"I have just completed a romp through history. 'Celebrity Encores' provides a facinating look at the great, the near great, and the sometimes forgotten characters that have shaped out American Heritage. A very unusal insight into their lives, brightened by often whimisical 'factoids.' Guaranteed to both keep your interest and a smile on your face...a must read"

Larry R. Darby
Homeland, CA

"Max Donaldson, historian and fact finder, wowed the crowd with his one of a kind presentation. Max was charming, charismatic and a proverbial wealth of information. This crowd didn't know that 'history' could be so interesting and fun! The audience didn't want Max to hour went by much too quickly. We look forward to his next appearance and the opportunity to share in his wonderful stories and historical facts. What a show! What a fellah! Our special thanks to Max Donaldson and his wonderful 'one man show'!" Deb Kuhl - Lakewood CO

"At our annual Buffalo Bill Commemoration this year, we very much appreciated how you tailored your presentation to our context with information about celebrities of the 'Old West'. As one of the audience members, I further enjoyed the manner in which you made the presentation both witty and informative. Thank you so much for your part in making our Buffalo Bill Commemoration a great success." - S. Friesen, Director, Buffalo Bill Museum

"I had the pleasure of seeing Max's "StoriesUnder the Stones" in Kansas City recently. He puts on a great show, with very good quality computer images and his stories are unique and delivered in a professional and funny manner. An experienced long-time showman that makes his audience comfortable. BOFFO!" Joan Hancock, atty. Raytown, Missouri
