B.B. Berg is one of the most up-beat and uplifting cabaret performers I’ve ever had the pleasure to see.”
“She creates a powerful presence as she moves and grinds to the strains of her soulful, bluesy voice.”
At Greene Street in lower Manhattan’s Soho, Gloria Steinem and many of the staff of Ms. Magazine came to her performance and Gloria wrote this:
“B.B. Berg is a singer who could only happen now-tough and vulnerable, serious and funny, sensuous and strong. She leaves her audience happier and better people than they were when they came in.”
On another occasion while performing at The Ballroom, critic: Kitty Culnane of Show Business News said
“Diving in and out of controlled alto, her burlesque enthusiasm would change to sultry introspection on a single note…Someone not to miss! Low-down, Smokey blues with a determined gutsy delivery.”
