Feedback,
Comments,
Complaints:

The Barefoot Hawaiian appreciates any and all feedback from clients, patrons, guests, and audience members regarding our show and performance.  Please determine the best and most efficient way to provide your feedback from the following categories:

Clients: Please provide your feedback to us directly either by phone or by the confidential email address that was used in our communications when setting up your event.

Guests of Private Parties: If you were a guest or customer of a private party (this would be any event not listed in our Event Schedule web page), then this event was run entirely and exclusively by your host.  The best method of providing your feedback would be directly to your host.  They are in the best position to collect and consolidate all feedback and pass it on to us along with their comments so we may respond or act on it most efficiently.  If the circumstance is one of an unresolved issue between you and the event's host, you must communicate the matter directly with the host.  The Barefoot Hawaiian does not become involved in any internal matters of private events and parties.

Customers of a Barefoot Hawaiian Event: 
If you attended an event that was run directly by or sponsored all or in part by the Barefoot Hawaiian, we would love to hear from you.  This would be any event from which you purchased a ticket directly from or paid an admission or entrance fee to the Barefoot Hawaiian.  We want to know where we did good and where we need to improve. If the matter is one of significance requiring immediate attention you may contact us by phone at 847-699-7336 Extension #1; otherwise, email your feedback to:

Audience Members of a Public Show or Event: 
This applies if you were the customer, guest, or audience member of an event that was open to the public but not sponsored directly by the Barefoot Hawaiian.  (Note: all public events are on our Event Schedule page.)  For this, the best method of providing your feedback would be directly to the host, promoter, or sponsoring organization that held the event.  They are in the best position to collect and consolidate all feedback and pass it on to us along with their comments so we may respond or act on it most efficiently.
If there is something exceptional that you want us to know, we welcome such feedback via email to:

If the circumstance is one of an unresolved issue between you and the event's sponsor, you must communicate the matter directly with the host.  The Barefoot Hawaiian has no means to become involved in or resolve issues between our client and customers of that client.  If, however, for public events only, yours is one of exception that you think we should at least know about, you may email your feedback to us at:

While we cannot become involved in resolving any dispute, our reputation with our audience members is our most prized and valuable asset.  An aggregate of feedback about a particular event, will help us determine whether we wish to return to performing at that event or not.
