"Wow! Great space, great sound, great food great folks, what more can we say. Thanks Teresa for doing it right!"
"Nissi's is a twenty-first century venue with old-school charm in service and presentation. It's relaxing, welcoming, and inspiring. Take a date or take the whole clan, and enjoy the front room at Nissi's as if it were your own home. Nissi's is world-class entertainment with intimate surroundings and a great evening in store."
"I just wanted to let you know that Nissi's has become our favorite venue to perform at largely in part because of the great atmosphere you've created. It's clean, non pretentious and just out right fun. Your staff and clientele are some of the warmest and friendliest folks that I've been around in a long time. I feel at home and for a home body like myself that says a lot. Your soundtechs mirror you and your staff's professionalism and that always has us looking forward to coming back again and again. Teresa don't change anything you got it going on...Nissi's is off the hook!
"I am thrilled to say that Nissis is all about professionalism, elegance and a common cause: to entertain the heck out of the audience. As a comedian, I never ceased to be amazed at the ability of most clubs to time a blender to start right on a punch line - on the first night, even! On stage at Nissis I'm free to have fun and not worry about distractions. From the acoustics to the to the incredibly hard-working staff to the unmistakable sense of ease, Nissis makes performing what it should be: pure pleasure."
"Nissi's is a place that celebrates and nurtures art at a deep, core level. There is a sense that an artist and his art are understood and valued at Nissi's. Sheer excellence in acoustics, equipment, food, and service are like the icing on the cake. To perform or attend a concert at Nissi's is to be reminded of why a picture is worth a thousand words or why a song can say things that mere words cannot."
"Built from the ground up to be a world-class music venue, Nissi’s is about as good as it gets. With classy interiors, atmosphere, and art work, great food and drink, and a close-up look at top local and national talent, what else could you ask for?"
" I've heard over and over again, from fans, how much they love it when I play Nissi's.
"Hi Teresa – Just wanted to thank you for your persistence. I had a great time, and it has inspired me to dive into my own stuff in a way that nothing else could have. You and the staff were great, Adam did a really nice job with the sound, the crowd was sweet and the food was exceptional. Anyway, Helen and I had a blast and we look forward to spending more evenings in your place, either listening or playing."
Thanks again for having us at your place last night. What a great job you’ve done with the venue, and what an amazing gem it is for the community at large. To have a spot to come hear live music in comfort with wonderful cuisine and delightful, attentive wait staff is truly fortunate. Your vision and determination are readily apparent in the resulting experience there. As a performer, I feel indeed fortunate to have been invited to play there. And my personal thanks to you for coaxing me to step out and do what I am so shy about but which I truly love to do. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support and encouragement.
“What a gem! At Nissi’s, there is art everywhere you look. No detail was overlooked in the creation of this beautiful center for the arts. The presentation is tremendous. The food is exquisite and the sound pristine. To top it off, the presenters are among the nicest folks you’ll ever meet.”
"There's great food, pristine sound, and a friendly staff at Nissi's. It's small enough for a performer and an audience member to make friends easily. And you can park for free. It may the first place I ever played that served halibut cheeks."
Teresa, thanks so much for having us at your wonderful place. We were treated like kings. The food was fabulous, the staff was respectful and helpful, the sound was great, you were great, your daughter was so patient in waiting so long for us to get our stuff out of there. I could go on and on........Good luck with everything. Hopefully we can figure out a way to do it again next year. Keep up the good work1"
"Teresa and her music venue are top notch. She has created a fantastic and unique atmosphere for which to share music. To this day, we have had some of our best nights at Nissi's. We owe Teresa much gratitude for her kindness and hospitality."
"I had a blast performing at Nissi's. I love the building, the food was great, everyone was so nice to me, and the atmosphere was marvelous. Can't wait to come back!"
"What a lovely venue and a great staff. We were so well taken care of from soundcheck to load-out, and G Brown was the ultimate host and compère - Thanks Teresa and thanks to everyone at Nissi's for a memorable night."
"We love playing at Nissi's - there are plenty of reasons why we will keep coming back! In addition to our great experiences, we take the audience experience very seriously, as well. We know our friends and fans will be treated to a first-class experience by all of the Nissi's staff - from when they first walk in the door, to the tasty food and the great service. Everyone in the room is having a great time, from the stage to the kitchen - what better place to play is there?"
"Nissi's is a little treasure. It's comfortable, with fine sound and a great menu. Easy to have a good time there!"
"Always one of my favorite places to play. Nissi's was built from the bottom to the top to be awesome venue. Great sound, excellent food, nice stage - one of the few places I play on a fairly regular basis. Thanks Teresa and the gang at Nissi's!"
"Playing at Nissi's is my favorite place to play. It's an affirming experience for the musicians and audience alike. The Club is light and comfortable with a positive vibe."
"Your venue is definitely one of my favorite venues of all time. There is so much light and love wrapped up in those beautiful walls, it feels like a venue you've read about in Rolling Stone or The New Yorker—'beautiful Colorado world-renowned venue Nissi's has been a hotspot since Dylan used to play every Monday night for 20 bucks in the '70s.' It's one of those kind of places. I'm just really excited to see who the next Dylan is. If anyone can find him, you can."
Teresa is my adopted mom. And who loved his mother more than Elvis? All the good things you've heard about Nissi's are just the beginning. I believe enough has been said about the sound, lights, ambiance, great food, etc. already by the other stellar artists that have played here. I want to say at Nissi's it was all about the PEOPLE! I've never played before a dull audience, and am always treated like The King when it comes to the service-
Playing at Nissi's is an experience the whole band looks forward to. Teresa has created an atmosphere that truly holds the space for a magical evening. Real community is felt with the kind and efficient staff, the delicious food, and the focus on stellar music in a listening room. Somehow Nissi's has created the fun of an evening out that feels as comfortable as being home. Love you guys!
"Nissi's is the ideal venue. Great sound, lights and atmosphere. The food and drinks are wonderful and it is ideal for all ages of music lovers. Finally a local venue where we are proud to invite our fans!"
"When I went Nissi's to see a friend play, I realized that this is the club that could bring me out of my retirement from performing live. It's so refreshing to see a club that highlights live music. They even have a stage! It's more like doing a concert, really, except that the audience gets to eat really tasty food, and sip excellent wine while watching the show. They have a great sound system complete with sound man (even more refreshing.) The end result is... I'm excited to invite people to my shows at Nissi's because I know they'll have an amazing time."
Wow, what a great time I had! I don't see how it can get any better. Your hospitality, the venue, the piano....it was all marvelous! I'd be honored to return. The first class treatment, the excellent sound, lights and stage, the gourmet food and, oh yes, the world class martini's all combined to make it a totally pleasant experience to perform at Nissi's! Thank you, Teresa!
"We love Nissi's because the atmosphere is comfortable and friendly, the food is great, the whole staff is wonderful & professional, and we really enjoy the intimate setting with the audience. We feel like Nissi's is truly dedicated to having a quality experience for both the performers and the audience --- the sound is great, too. We're happy to come back, anytime!"
"Nissi's is our favorite room to play...great sound, the best fans, a totally professional staff, and of course the Grande Dame, Teresa!!!"
"I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks for all that you and your staff did for us in Ceili Rain while we were there. We had a great time performing in your venue and for your wonderful clients. Very memorable indeed. There are only a handful of intimate types of places that we get to play in a year, and it's always one of my favorite vibes because you can really connect with the audience. You have a wonderful bistro, and I will recommend it to everyone I know who is heading your way. I really appreciate all of the attention to detail you have taken. It really shows. I appreciate the effort you took to get the place full as well. What a wonderful audience! You should be very proud, and it's obvious that you and your family are very involved. Finally, what can I say about your most generous offer to let us stay at your cabin. It was just perfect. We were all so comfy and actually wished we didn't have a Saturday night show. Too bad we couldn't have pushed it back to Sunday. Couldn't believe the breathtaking view from the front. I was wishing that my wife could have been along with me on this one. In any case, it was a very memorable weekend, thanks to you. We rarely get to feel that much at home on the road. Thanks again for your kindness. And I pray for many blessings on you, your family, and your dreams."
"I have had the pleasure of performing at Nissi's with my jazz quintet. It is a beautiful space, and the sound is great. Brian was working the sound board and did a marvelous job. They give the locals ample chances to perform and also have opportunities for budding student musicians. I think a lot of other clubs should take a lesson from Nissi's!"
"In my experience, Nissi's has diligently sought out and researched all of the variables that make a great dining and entertainment experience. Teresa Taylor has assembled an incredible service team and menu, but more than that, Nissi's delivers! Anyone can put together a team, and it's such a buzzword these days. Lots of people say "Our team is here to serve your needs," or "The finest team, dedicated to serving the customer." Nissi's actually delivers! I have tasted the food—EXCELLENT! I have sampled the wine—SUPERB! I have met the team—truly DEDICATED to excellence! How can I be so sure? Well, I'm one of the musicians that performs at Nissi's. Typically musicians aren't treated so well by club owners. But I have nothing but good feelings about this place. So think of it this way—if Nissi's is so good to the musicians and entertainers, just think how amazing your experience as a customer will be. I'm too modest to comment on my own performance, but I hope the patrons enjoyed Sterling/Meyer and our eclectic variety of great music everyone knows. However, I know who a lot of the other performers are, and I can say without a doubt that they are the finest musicians around, and I make sure I go and see them when I get a chance. If Sterling/Meyer is good enough for Teresa and Nissi's to hire us time and time again, and we hold all of the other musicians that perform at Nissi's in high regard, just think how blown away you are going to be after such great service to also get to listen to and experience some of the most outstanding artists and entertainers in any market and at any reputable club!"
"Consistantly fun venue, consistantly awesome service, consistantly wonderful crowds!"
"Can't thank you enough for your kind words, your wonderful venue, and your incredible support of emerging artists. I'm sure your good works will come back to you tenfold."
"Playing Nissi's was a great experience for me. I was impressed from the initial contact with Teresa, to the friendliness of everyone there, to the sound man Adam's great job on the mixing board. Sometimes it's hard for me to find a venue where I can have fun and play my louder songs and quiet down for the softer ones and have it sound just as good. The intimacy of the room also made the night a wonderful one for me. There's just a great feeling in the room. I really appreciate you having me there!"
"From a musician's standpoint, Nissi's has been heaven—a smoke-free, classy venue with a state-of-the-art sound system. There is a sound person running things, which allows musicians to concentrate on the show instead of the technical details. The venue is designed around musical entertainment, so there's no competing with pool and darts. The focus is on the show. We have been particularly impressed with the wonderful food. This is not bar food but wonderful chef-prepared cuisine!"
"When we, as musicians, think about our careers, we dream of one day having a top-notch venue in which to showcase our playing and singing—a place with class, where people listen and are moved. Unfortunately, there are few of those places for most working musicians, which is why we are all so lucky to have Nissi's in our midst. It's everything a performer could ask for—classy and inviting with a great sound, but mostly it's a great place for people to experience our art."
"It's always a privilege to work with venues that are professional and accommodating. Here are three reasons why I would play at Nissi's again: Nissi's provided my band and me with gift cards to be used for the food of our choice, the sound system and the sound man were excellent, and Nissi's is a great environment to invite anyone of any age or background."
"Your staff was stunning—the food was heavenly (I bought a second dinner because it was so good), and the room was a joy to play in, even with a big band. We loved the experience and hope to do it again someday soon."
"I wanted to be sure to thank you for Friday night. Thanks for trusting in me, believing in me, and being a super-cool hostess and event coordinator. I have enjoyed working with you from day one, and I hope the night proved to be worthwhile. We certainly had a blast, and I'm already planning on a time when I can come back in there and bring some friends to introduce them to Nissi's. You truly have made a fine establishment that both musicians and guests can enjoy. The food was delicious, and the service was superb. Though it's a hike from south Denver, you truly made it worth our while. Let me know if you'd ever like to schedule another show. Perhaps in a few months we can do a little something with my full band or even with my country band! You just let me know what you need and if I can fill the need in any way. In the meantime, may business be great for you. I will certainly do my best to continue spreading the word, and of course, I'll be sure to ask for you when I make it up that way again."
"I just wanted to write and say thank you again. Both Bart and I had a blast, and we hope everyone else did as well! If there is any feedback or criticisms that you have gotten, it would be great if you could pass them along to us. I would like to know what people thought and also how they thought it could be improved for the upcoming dates. Thank you again, and I will be in touch!"
"Hey! I got a few calls from people who already saw me on your site! I can't tell you how much it means to have someone as genuine and human to deal with in this business as you are, Teresa. It is so rare. In all the years I've been dealing with club owners, there has never been anyone who comes close. Thanks so much for just being yourself."
"Thank you so much for such a wonderful evening. Nissi's is by far one of the best places we have ever played. Your staff was incredible. R.J., Adam, Brian—ALL of your staff went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed, and they were all so easy to work with. Adam—what a guy! He was so willing to help out and make sure we were good with the sound. The waitresses were attentive and very helpful. R.J.—what a wonderful manager! He is such a sweetie! Your establishment is professionally run, and it was my pleasure to play for you last night. I heard nothing but great things about Nissi's from our friends and fans who were in the audience. They loved the atmosphere, the food, the service, and most of all, the early show times and the fact that Nissi's is a non-smoking place to gather to listen to music—NOT play pool and watch TV. You honor the music and the musicians. Many of our fans are mature adults who love the fact that they can come to a beautiful place, have a great meal, listen to some great music, and be home early. What you are doing is incredible, and I know you will be extremely successful. I look forward to playing Nissi's again and enjoying another fun night."
"Teresa -- I just wanted to drop you a quick note and again express my thanks and congratulations at what a wonderful venue AND restaurant you have put together. Everything from Adam and R.J. helping us out on the music side to the wonderful treats coming out of the kitchen to the overall sense of hospitality was first rate. I hope you enjoyed the turnout and the overall evening, as I already can't wait to play there again
"Just wanted to say thanks a whole bunch for letting Erick, Antoine, and I perform at Nissi's. Your venue is really beautiful and extremely classy. It was definitely a highlight for us during this tour! !hope it was a great night for your business as well, Nissi's is a real gem and needs to prosper for many years to come!"
