"We hired Neil to play for my mom's surprise 50th Birthday and it was nothing shy of a party!  Neil is so easy to work with from booking, to planning, to the night of the show. He plays a great variety of his own music and classic to modern day covers. We can’t wait to have an occasion we can hire him for again!  If you’re looking for great entertainment and an even better time Neil will not disappoint!"

"We booked Neil Hewitt at Backcountry Winery based on requests from our regular customers, and he did not disappoint! We loved his blend of original music as well as the classic songs he covered. He was extremely professional and polite, and we really appreciated his sensitivity to the acoustics of our unique venue. Our guests had a great time and loved the energy he brought to the show. Neil is a very talented artist and we can't wait to work with him again in the future!"

"From the time we first inquired to book a date with Neil Hewitt, he was professional and accommodating.  He understood that we didn’t know exactly when our group of farmers would come in from the field, but he was ready to play when they arrived.  Neil’s performance was like dessert at the end of a fine meal.  In addition to his own songs, he played a wide variety of cover tunes from Johnny Cash and Dan Seals, to Garth Brooks and Eric Church, so his music appealed to everyone in the crowd.  People were singing along and having a great time.  Our company is active on social media, so we also appreciated all Neil did to plug our company's event on Twitter and Facebook."

"Neil is awesome. From the beginning he was easy to work with for my wife's surprise birthday party. I contacted him and he responded in a timely and kind manner throughout the time we planned the party. Even though we had agreed upon start times, he was very quick to approach me at the party to make sure I knew he was willing to start early if need be in order to make sure the party flowed well. I would recommend him to anyone as he works his tail off to make sure you're happy. He pours everything into his shows and it starts weeks to months beforehand with his preparation. From the hours beforehand setting up as well as the time afterwards to tear down and drive home. Well worth it every time!"

"We had Neil come to our casino to play at Coaches Corner. He was very understanding of our schedule and flexible so we could get him in here. We heard nothing but great feedback after his performance from both staff and guests. We were so impressed, that we booked him for more shows for the rest of this year! We are really looking forward to keep working with Neil and see where his talents take him."

"The Felts' wanted to thank you for making our 50th birthday party so wonderful. You were amazing and we are still receiving compliments on how great the music was. From the moment you arrived and throughout the entirety of the party, you were professional, polite, and extremely accommodating. Everyone enjoyed the old style country music and the filler song requests in between sets. You got everyone up and dancing and played a great variety of music, suitable for all ages in attendance.  If you're looking for someone that maintains the up-most level of professionalism and has an awesome voice, Neil Hewitt is it! We highly recommend him to our friends, and can't wait to have him back at our next event!"

"The Waterloo Bucks hosted Neil at one of our baseball games last summer. You will be hard-pressed to find an artist as fun and easy to work with!  He was willing to work with our needs to make the performance a success!  The stage set-up was excellent and Neil played great music!  I definitely recommend him for your next event!"

"Having Neil at our customer event was a tremendous success.  Impressing a crowd of 500 + customers with a mix of covers and individual music isn't an easy task, but Neil was a hit.  I'm hearing nothing but positive comments about his talent and volume from my customers.  Neil made us look genius.  I'd recommend him for a corporate event to anyone but my competition."

"Neil played for our company holiday party at Sunnyside Country Club in Waterloo, IA.  I’ve had many company parties through the years and never have had such a good time.  People stayed around through the end of the night and I had to let Neil know to shut it down or I don’t think they would have ever left!  We had nothing but compliments from everyone there.  Neil’s country music talent is the best around, we are fortunate to have him here in Iowa.  I have already been telling my friends and family about him, and plan to have him back in the future!"

"Neil was enjoyable and easy to listen to.  We had so many comments from people that came to the art encore.  Neil was a big hit!  We haven't had live music for awhile so I wasn't quite sure what to expect.  Neil played how we wanted it done, with a break in the evening, and the volume was perfect so people didn't feel like they had to yell over it.  Neil's music was a variety and his set up was flexible.  We were very pleased and would for sure have Neil come again for one of our events!"

I was SO pleased with Neil's performance at my husband's party! We had a full house and no one left early! People actually pooled their money together to get him to play longer. I have since been asked about him from many people in attendance. He was also very easy to work with and book!"

"Putting aside Neil's amazing talent and ability to draw his own group of loyal fans, Neil is great to work with. He is professional, and prompt. While putting together a fundraising event for our local Kiwanis club, Neil worked with us to create a show within our budget and was very accommodating to our set-up and venue needs. It was truly a pleasure doing business with Neil."

"One of a kind, entertaining, enjoyable and plays one heck of a concert. Neil really knows how to entertain a crowd, there wasn't one person sitting and listening to his music, he had everyone on their feet dancing. I truly enjoyed listening to all of the music that he played for our private party. Neil has a personality that is very contagious and everyone around him shines with a smile and glisten in their eye. I am looking forward to having Neil play for us again in the near future! I am truly blessed to have met this great entertainer, there's not enough words to describe how wonderful he is and how well rounded of a man he is. Neil has a bright future ahead of him!"

"Neil Hewitt is a new breath of fresh air in the country scene.   We have no doubt he’ll make his way to the top of the country charts. I remember the first time we booked Neil was a Friday night from 9pm-1am. We received a call at home from our staff around 7:30pm.  Informing us that they were running out of inventory and they were under staffed.   My husband got off of the phone and said, “We needed to hurry up and get out to the bar. Our staff needs help”.   I remember saying, “You’re kidding he isn’t scheduled until 9pm”. We pulled in the bar parking lot. Both large parking lots were full and people were lined up outside waiting to get in.  My husband looked at me and said, “Wow, all this for a single guy with a guitar”.  Best of Luck Neil Hewitt!  See you on the top side!"

"Neil Hewitt is one of the best country acts we have had at our establishment.  He was actually requested by some of our regulars who had seen him previously.  They were so excited about his performance that I had to book him.  I have to say, I was not disappointed!  He puts on one hell of a show and engages the crowd!  Neil is now a consistent part of my booking schedule, when he is available!"

"Neil Hewitt has an amazing, smooth tone to his voice.  He's able to twist other genres and you'd think they were country songs all along.  He has been a gem to work with.  His professionalism and quality are unprecedented."
