Maureena hit the Hollywood club scene late November '98 as an opening act in the now legendary Ronnie Mack's Barndance. A standing ovation earned her top billing at Jack's Sugar Shack, LA Weekly's Hot Pick and a rash of other headliners including The Mint, The Gig, The Whiskey, The Troubador and the world famous Desert Inn in Las Vegas.
Maureena has also made special guest performances for the luminary Glenn Frey of the Eagles, country artists Jeff Carson and the multi-award winning country duo Brooks & Dunn.
Rockin' the Ormsby House in Carson City, Nevada to a sold out crowd Maureena's New Year's Eve show brought in the local news crew and earned her the well-prized Carson City Television's 1999 "Entertainer of the Year"
That same year her dynamic performance skills and phenomenal 3½ octave range earned two more accolades. Maureena Danicar was named top honors as both 1999's "Vocalist of the Year" and "Entertainer of the Year" By the California Country Music Association (CCMA).
In 2000, Maureena's unequivocal talent won her an unprecedented seven CCMA awards including "Best Album". In September of 2001 the two-time "Vocalist of the Year" landed a spot as the youngest inductee into the CCMA Hall of Fame.
Her "Best Album of the Year" debut cd has garnered rave reviews from music publications such as Sing Out! which wrote, "Like the best vocalists, she knows when to hold back and when to let it go...the affect can be chilling, evoking the spirits of classic singers from the Patsy Cline to Linda Rondstadt. ...There's little doubt she'll soon emerge onto the national scene in a big way."
"Such an artist is Maureena Danicar...who can sing as beautifully as she can write songs, and can write songs with a dynamic depth and emotional honesty that matches the expressive power of her own vocals" -- Music Digest Online
2004 Maureena was the LA Music Awards unanimous choice for "Country Singer/Songwriter of the Year"
"Maureena Danicar is primed and ready for success. Major labels take note."
--Robert Morgan Fisher, Premiere Radio Network
"Maureena writes great songs that communicate the raw territory of the heart. She proves that she is a singer-songwriter here to contend with the best."
--John Koetzner, Freelance Music Critic
