Tucker provided live music for my daughter's 2nd birthday party. What was great about Tucker was that he really just set the mood in an authentic way. Other musical entertainment that I've seen at parties is largely based on getting kids to "participate". It was great to just have someone be genuine, enthusiastic and entertaining for kids and adults alike.
Thank you so much for making my birthday party a fabulous night to remember. You were awesome and everyone raved at what an awesome band I had found! I will definitely hire you again!!!! Living Cover Band Rocks!
Summer does a great job at noticing right away what I need help with and provides materials to target the problem. I told her what book I was using in my class and she purchased it right away, making our lesson much more efficient and smooth. She even went out of her way to curate a CD of a couple of my favorite bands for me to listen and analyze from. Not only is she ridiculously professional and organized, she responds promptly to texts/ schedule changes and immediately makes arrangements for the next lesson. I'm glad that I found someone who has a clear understanding of music and teaches it to ones who are in dire need of learning it. I highly recommend Summer to anyone in need of a professional and truly reliable teacher to learn music.
I can't say enough wonderful things about The Happiness Band! We hired them to play jazz and classical music at our engagement and our guests loved them! Not only were they very talented, but a couple of days prior to the event I asked if the band would be willing to learn background music to a modern song for my sister to sing at our event and they totally pulled it off! They even rehearsed with her before the event started. They were very skilled, came and set up on time, and worked with our budget! I definitely plan on reaching out to them again in the future!
I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.
I learned to play guitar when I was 12, then abandoned it for many years. Wanting to return to it years later as an adult, I wanted someone who could help me pick up where I left off. A friend from work referred me to Damien and I love his teaching style. His knowledge and understanding of music theory is exceptional and he has helped me progress tremendously. Damien takes a personal approach to teaching rather than a "classroom textbook" approach. I occasionally do events at a local venue and have hired Damien and his friends to play on several occasions and received rave reviews on his performance. Damiens musical energy flows from his fingers to the fretboard in a magical way. I highly recommend Damien to anyone looking to further their musical education!
If you are looking for a live saxophonist in Socal, Tyler is the guy. He is very professional, and he is passionate about what he does. Tyler comes prepared. He was a hit at our wedding. His playlist is classy and trendy. I would highly recommend him to everybody. My wife and I were so excited to have him be part of that memorable day.
We commissioned Nova Mariee to perform with her band during our the dinner portion of our wedding reception and glad that we did! We asked to to perform a playlist of song that we wanted to hear live. From the initial contact to the day of the event it, the communication was outstanding. The performance was loved by all our guests, would love to work and refer Nova Mariee anytime! Amazing voice and band!
Inland Empire Live Music provided the guitar violin duo for cocktail hour for our wedding. They did an amazing job and kept our guests entertained. Thank you. Highly recommended!
Kim and her Reckless bandmates were amazing. We received so many compliments and they were perfect for our event. Professional, flexible, and so talented - the band did a great job of entertaining the crowd and I can't speak highly enough about how easy it was to work with them. Thank you Kim!
We hired this wonderful band for our wedding. They went above and beyond to make our day extra special and worked with our budget. They even learnt our special song requests and all our guests absolutely would not stop raving about how amazing the band was. I would highly recommend.
Oh, my goodness. Ron was amazing from the start. He got right back to me when messaged, he asked for details to make sure our evening would be perfect, and he was a total pro start to finish. My guests (and more importantly, my boss!) were so impressed with how Ron provided a great flow of live and background music with a mix that kept everyone in the crowd happy. I was so pleased to see that a number of guests were eager to get his card and get in touch with him for their events! Thank you for a lovely evening, Ron!
John Brown is a talented musician. I hired him for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party. He was amazing! Played all of the songs we asked and sounded great. He even let my dad, who enjoys singing and playing the guitar harmonize with him for a few of the songs. My dad was over the moon about the experience. I will hire John again and again if I am in need of live music. Thank you John for making my parents 50th extra special!
Very professional band and awesome musicians. We had a blast!
Hugo played for me at a surprise party for my husband. He was fantastic! So many people commented on how great the music was. I would hire Hugo again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!
Emma sang at my wedding. She's not only gorgeous, her voice is also fantastic and powerful. She sang a capella as well as with a band and both performances were awesome: tear provokers and dance instigators. I'd recommend her any day.
Emily played the harp at our wedding on August 25th 2012. She was incredible and extremely professional. There is something about having a harp play during the ceremony and when I walked down the aisle, it was so much more elegant and personal than having a recorded song play. It was like a real live fairytale. the harp is so classic for a wedding in my opinion and I had always wanted the harp played during the ceremony at my own wedding. I feel so blessed that I had Emily to play for me. I didn't have to stress or worry about anything, she made me feel so relaxed and confident that it would be everything I had ever dreamed of. It was so much more and the complements I got on the class and elegance of my ceremony blew me away.
Albert does great at all venues! He performs well live and really enjoys what he does. He even played on Halloween for the community!
Mischief made my event. We had a dance floor and the band kept it full all evening long. They had great groove, had varied song list. Marlena not only has great voice - truly star quality - but was amazingly varied in style for music she sang and she certainly kept the guys attention. If she wasn't so nice I would hate her :-) the lead guitar player clear knows his craft - his solos were crazy good and fantastic job singing. Harmony amount the members was impressive often in 4 parts! They showed up on time, were professional, interacted very well with my friends, and put on an amazing show in addition to the amazing sound. I would definitely hire them again!
The Breakfast Club was terrific. When the band played, they sound Great! AND they included most of my guests in the karaoke part of the show. Thumbs up. Hire them! Thomas D. , Encino, CA

We are 4 seasoned players that have been together longer, well longer than I should say as there is a lady member. Let me just say that we remember classic rock. We play in weddings, parties and saloons.
