Clifford's band was professional and wicked good. Hire them, they will not let you down.
Laura has a beautiful, clear singing voice, wonderful musicianship, and all the professionalism I could possibly have asked for. Laura tapped a contra-dance-calling and fiddle-playing friend of hers named Erik, and together they played an upbeat bluegrass line-up for my daughter's farm-themed birthday party at a tractor museum. The best part was the contra dancing, which Erik taught the participants in an easy-to-follow and friendly manner. Everyone got the hang of it and had an absolutely splendid time. Thank you so much, Laura and Erik, for making this event exactly the kind of birthday I'd hoped for my daughter. I really appreciate it.
I had the opportunity to have this awesome band play at my house party! They were really talented and played a really good mix of jazz and latin which was perfect for our guests. You won't be sorry if you hire this band:)
As a professional pianist myself, I think I have a good ability to evaluate fellow musicians. Amy Brodo was kind enough to help me with some questions recently regarding Baroque style; I have never had a more productive lesson, or a better musical experience. Amy's talents, both for playing music and for teaching it, are very rare and special.
I am manny and he was drum teacher and my advisory and he’s good got great timing , good rythym and has many great teaching lessons that won’t make you forget of those lessons
Jan's guitar was the perfect background to our evening. His style makes it easy to socialize without having to compete with the music. His easy jazz was so nice to listen to. At one point we asked him to turn up the volume a little because once inside our venue, he played softly and we wanted to hear the beautiful music.
Elaine is a really talented singer who was on time, fun, polite, and great to work with! She was flexible and asked me for my preferred set list ahead of time and provided an awesome environment for a birthday party. Would highly recommend as well as hire again
I have been lucky enough to attend dozens of events where DJ HellaGood has been the DJ. So when it came time to look into DJ’s for our own wedding there was no question who we needed to hire! DJ HellaGood met with us and outlined everything we needed to know ahead of time and had us fill out a questionnaire to help guide him in our style of music etc. He not only “played music” but he truly read and felt the crowd. He had the party dancing to the end and we all had a most memorable evening because of it. He provided assistance with ordering other items we needed for our wedding as well (extra mics etc.) You will not be disappointed with the service he provides and we intend on using him again when the time comes. Thank you DJ HellaGood for the years of good times and for helping us dance like nobody’s watching!
Despite my wedding being late and some miscommunication with my sister, Ilana was very professional and handled it all well. The music was perfect. She is certainly a pro and I would definitely recommend her and hire her for future events!!!
I hired Orkestra International for my engagement party in Concord, Ca. My step-dad is Mexican American and we have a lot of parties and dancing. My fiancé (who's also Mexican American) and I decided to have our engagement party with salsa dancing along with other dance music for our friends and family that would be attending. We wanted someone affordable and knew a vast array of different genres in English and Spanish. With only a couple weeks to plan, I went searching online and found Orkestra International. I was surprised with their setup. A DJ band that didn't have instruments but back tracks. They also did Spanish songs as well as other dance music. I was a little skeptical, but called them up and spoke to their band leader, Barbara Ochoa. She was really informative. I explained to her that I was having a small(ish) party in my backyard for an engagement party on October 14th. I also explained what kind of set list we wanted as well. She was really understanding and said her band was available that day (thank goodness). We talked about the price and she was really reasonable. Her price was less than some DJs I had looked at before finding her. Anyways, fast forward to the 14th. Her band arrived early to set up. By band, I mean the trio. They had a back track dj board thing, mics and speakers. Again, I was a little skeptical, at least I was, until they started. THEY WERE GREAT! They knew A LOT of different Latin style songs that kept my family and friends dancing and happy on my step-dad's and fiancé's (mine too) side, and for us on my family's (and friends) side knew a bunch of classic American standards that got them moving too. I forgot that they didn't have a real band behind them. Thank you for making my engagement such a wonderful memory! I'll probably be hiring them again for my wedding reception.
I would give Kelly more stars if I could. He was outstanding. We had a wine and cheese party and asked him to play some pop, classical and oldies. He showed up early for set up and brought a mic for people to sing along. I have never had so many compliments on our party. Everyone loved making requests from his specially made songbook and singing along. Kelly knows a wide range of songs and is an excellent player. I am going to hire him again and give him my highest recommendation. I am not surprised he plays for some of the classiest and fun bars in SF.
I highly recommend this talented and gracious performer. I saw Peter perform at several SF venues and have enjoyed his music and his energetic performances. This guy is indeed a "rising star" in the Bay area! His voice is amazing. Recently, as a surprise for a special friend, I hired Peter to write a song using the words from a poem that my friend wrote... Pete skillfully crafted the melody to match the words of the song and he performed it with such musical skill - it brought tears to my friend's eyes! It was just the "perfect music". Peter was on time, professional, reasonably priced, and courteous! Keep following this talented performer. I ‘m sure his career will continue to flourish!
I'm a songwriter and have published a worship album in Mandarin last year. Though I'm considered a pretty good singer among people I know, I know there's a big difference between a pretty good amateur singer and a professional one. With the desire to close, or at least to minimize the gap, I looked online for a voice teacher who can help me, and found Ken. I like that he is a singer and composer himself, and more! Ken has good ears and a great sense of humor! He's also very good at communication. I sent him a song I posted on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIJkPgl72b4 before we met. He quickly identified a couple of things I need to work on. I knew right there this is someone I can definitely learn from. I'm glad Ken responded to my inquiry in the first place, though he's out of my range in distance! It takes forty minutes, with no traffic, to drive to his place, but it's all good! I could practice what I have just learned on the drive home by singing every road sign! Ken does not feed me with any standardized curriculum. He works around my needs. I just had my second lesson. We practiced every skill I need to improve with an original song I wrote. I'm sure my second album will sound much better from this point on! Thanks, Ken!
Marla is fun to work with and knows her art. The exercises she gives are helpful in learning how to properly sing without straining the voice. She is very encouraging as well. If you want to learn how to sing, increase your range, and sound amazing go to Marla!
My fiance and I asked Garrick to play at our wedding...and I'm so glad he could add beautiful music to our special day! We hired Garrick to play soul and classic rock to liven up our outdoor cocktail hour and he did not disappoint. He was a true professional and working with him was smooth sailing. We are still receiving compliments from our guests who enjoyed his music! We would not hesitate to hire Garrick again...and will definitely recommend his services to our friends in the Bay Area! Thank you, Garrick!
