From the very onset, I understood that Kari Gaffney and her agency were the "Real Deal". It was very clear that she appreciated the music that I was making and understood what she could do to promote it. I was duly impressed by her honesty in stating what she could not do with it. Dealing with her and her agency has been nothing short of pleasant and took a large burden off of my shoulders.
...
One of the decisions I have NOT questioned was having Kari Gaffney represent me. I was knocked out by her dedication from our very first conversation, long before my CD's official release. This is someone who does her job really, really well. -- someone who's obviously making 150 phone calls a day to radio programmers, and yet manages to get back to me within an hour every time I've emailed or called. If that was me, it'd take six weeks, that's why I'm working with her! This way, I can concentrate on the music and let a real pro handle the radio and press. And the results? Kari sent out my album ten days ago and 98 U.S. radio stations are playing it. Oh sorry, I don't think I said that clearly! Kari sent out my effing CD ten days ago and 98 stations are playing it! -- so my only question is: where do we buy the Kari-On T-shirt?
...
I would just like to say here that, as an Indie singer and producer, working with Kari Gaffney for the second time, that she is a true blue partner in promotion; she really takes the time to understand the recording, the performer, and where the best fit is.
...
NYC jazz musicians who all recommended publicist/radio promoter Kari Gaffney to me as I was looking to raise the level of exposure that my music was receiving.
...
Enter: Kari Gaffney. There was absolutely no downtime to question my friends' "recommendation" (insistence). After checking out her website, I called her around 5pm on a Friday evening. Half an hour later (much to my amazement), she called back. She had been to my website, checked out my music, and was enthusiastically prepared to commit.
...
Kari Gaffney believed in my music. Thanks to her exceptional spirit, talent, and diligence--and her hard-working staff--a whole new audience is hearing my music. I have the utmost respect for her as a publicist and as a person. I recommend Kari-On Productions without hesitation to anyone and everyone who is ready to move their career forward.
Marty Williams, "Long Time Comin" Kari Gaffney is the consummate professional and a true master of her craft.

My wife and I comment regularly about how fortunate we are to have connected with Kari, and how appreciative we are of the huge difference she made by promoting my CD. I cannot recommend Kari highly enough. If you are an artist wanting your musical voice to be heard, you should not think twice about your choice to engage Kari-On Productions to help you make huge leaps in your musical journey. I know I will work with Kari on all my future musical endeavors.
...
"Working with Kari Gaffney was one of the easiest things I've ever done. After a personal recommendation from a friend and fellow musician, I made the call and was greeted by one of the most genuinely nice people I've ever worked with. Everything about my entire album project to that point took a tremendous amount of effort, but the promotional step was a breeze. I needed radio play and magazine reviews and trusted that Kari would deliver. She never ignored a phone call or email to make sure I was getting what I needed, when I needed it. Working with Kari pushed my career to the next level."
...
"The first time I spoke to Kari at Kari-On Productions, I knew I was getting involved with someone very confident and serious about what they do. I could sense in her voice that there was an excitement about my music and the chance to get the album out there. And it wasn't that I was just another client, I could tell that her and her staff would be behind me 100%. It's obviously important that in any business relationship, communication is part of the key to success. With Kari, I always feel like I can ask questions, and call or contact her any time I need something.
...
Kari Gaffney is "THE REAL DEAL". The "After-Birth of Cool" is the Graham family's initial attempt at a self-released jazz CD. The two year effort of pulling it all together was a major accomplishment. But, the question arose……what do we do now? Fortunately, the jazz god's were smiling on us the day that Kari contacted Chris about helping to promote the CD.
...
Professional, caring, and helpful is what Kari is all about, but the most wonderful part of Kari is her enthusiasm in getting the music out there for people to experience. That is the "priceless" part of Kari-On Productions! She has been there for us always and has patiently answered all our questions and more.
...
Kari has the Graham family respect and thanks for helping a musical career move forward. Kari-On Productions will continue to be with the Graham family in future CD releases! Thanks Kari…………you are so much more better than good!
James Zollar Zollar Systems Kari Gaffney is a total 100% hands on music promotional company, She has a great ear on how to market your particular sound to the music masses of a lot of different Genres. Also she is very honest about business and music air play. At first I thought it was a scam but she is for real. I applaud Kari Gaffney & Kari-On Productions for their hard work on getting the music out there. And you may Carry On! James Zollar. (the original) J.Z

Kari knows her end of the music business inside-out, she works hard for her clients, and she gets the job done. Plus she was in frequent contact with me on airplay and reviews. I've tried to do this myself before, and I never came close to the results she got for me-charting on three national charts and a slew of reviews..
...
The mystery of promotion is unveiled with Kari Gaffney. Not only is she at the forefront of the latest approaches to promotion but she truly cares about what she does. Kari had the same passion about pormoting my music as I have about recording and performing it. The proof is in the great results she gets. I am so glad I found her.
...
It so important, in this business, to surround yourself with the best - from musicians to your recording engineer and mixing/mastering staff to your publicist/radio promoter - Kari is THE BEST! From the beginning, I have had complete trust in her recommendations, her decisions and guidance in presenting my CD "Sentimental Mood". Kari's excellent reputation and years of experience allow her to get my music to the right people! I look forward to working with Kari Gaffney with my future CD releases!!!
...
Within 3 months of our release, Kari got us on 2 nationally distributed radio charting agencies, had our CD played all over the nation, and we got over 20 reviews - ALL WITHIN 3 MONTHS! I've gotten 2 calls in the last week from the news media because of Kari.
...
Area. I just wanted to shoot you a quick note about Kari Gaffney. I learned about Kari’s work as a publicist from a fellow sax player in town, I told him that my new CD “Just Noodlin” was about to be released. Perry (his name), said “Man, you should use this publicist Kari Gaffney to promote and get reviews for your CD”.
...
Perry went on and on talking about how great Kari was.
...
After I checked out all the reviews and all the attention Perry had gotten on his project, I decided to use Kari.
...
There’s no way I could have gotten those many reviews without Kari. Kari is a hard working, professional, smart and very easy to work with. Kari is also an excellent writer as well. When I finish my next project later this year, my first call will be to Kari. I really can’t say enough good things about her work.
...
Putting your trust into someone with your art can be quite frustrating, but Kari has done a great job with my album. For me, her sensitivity to music from an artistic standpoint convinced me she knew what she was doing. Don't waste your time with others, give Kari a call.
...
Kari, you've done such a fantastic job. Your enthusiasm for my music and my success has been so uplifting.
...
I think working with Kari brought my appearance and my product to another level. I couldn't have done it with out her.
...
We're thrilled and honored to have Kari promoting our CD. She has a potent combination of genuine enthusiasm, tireless work ethic, seemingly endless contacts & resources, and magnificent skill in the art of promotion.
...
It has been a most rewarding journey working with Kari Gaffney, and the entire team. They not only got our album 'out there' and on the map in a big way, propelling the CD into Top 10 station charts, and gleaning excellent media reviews on our behalf, but the
