DJ Dan was GREAT! He was on time, well dressed and a professional. The music/light was great. The kids/teens really enjoyed the music/dancing and singing (they are normally bored in party for adults). The oldies enjoys the music and danced with the younger ones too. The photo booth was a hit too. Dan was also very accommodating and was willing to stay beyond the agreed time with out charge. He was also very interactive with the kids and teen. Even the Band singers danced during their break! All of this on a really good price deal. My family really like his service and want to extend our thank you for a job well done. You are definitely on our list on our next parties (and our friends).
I was looking for a piano instructor for a long time. I’m so glad that I finally found Clifford who is the exact the person who I was looking for. He teaches not only with his skill, but his passion as well. He has his own scientific and reliable system for each individual that helps students reach the goals. All the tools and materials that he recommended to me, became instrumental in my learning. He is working on jazz, blues, classical, bossa nova with me. I can see improvement in every class. Clifford is an amazing musician and instructor and I am grateful for his instruction.
Donna helped me to be a better music teacher. As a teacher, I took lessons and often refer to the wonderful notebook Donna put together for me, with tons of ideas and thoughts about music in general. Donna can help musicians, and beginners, to really understand the elements of music, and suggest how to make music your career, or just enjoy music as part of your life skills.
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:)
We hired Groovy Judy and her band to perform at a biker event. She was extremely professional and the band was great! They played well and their song selection was perfect. I highly recommend her.
I can't say enough about how happy we were hiring Rob & his band The Gold Standard for our wedding in SF. They were AMAZING. He was the best thing about our wedding. The next day everyone from our friends, to our parents, and us too, were raving about how great the music was. He kept everyone dancing the entire time - even during dinner people were hitting the floor prematurely. They started playing as the guests were entering the reception venue - and when I peeked in to check them out before we entered the room - I was floored with how great they sounded! Rob was playing some electronic music with sax, flute, and there was a drummer, and a singer - Conn Curran (who was FANTASTIC). And then they played our first dance song - again, with Conn singing. It was perfect. I come from a family of musicians and they were all impressed and loved the evolution of music throughout the night. from the more Sinatra style dinner music, a bunch a great 90s stuff that appealed to our early 30s crowd, ending with more contemporary music by the end of the night. My husband and I were pretty busy preparing for the wedding beforehand so didn't give a ton of guidance on music - but we did fill out a questionnaire that Rob provided, which was great. It ended up working out perfectly, and I would recommend him a million times over to anyone getting married or throwing a party. He is professional AND talented.10 stars!!
My tango band Trio Garufa recorded our 2012 album at Granada Studios under the supervision of Stevan Pasero. We had an excellent experience and were delighted with the quality of the results. Many factors make Granada Studios an outstanding recording facility: First, the studio equipment, room design and acoustics are top notch. It's also a very nicely-decorated space, which makes you feel comfortable and relaxed during your long recording sessions. Second, Stevan Pasero strives for nothing short of excellence: he is extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented and uncompromising when it comes to recording quality. He spent several hours optimizing the mic placement for each of our instruments (double bass, bandoneon and guitar), and was on top of every single technical detail, allowing us to fully concentrate on the music. It does make a big difference when your recording engineer is a very experienced performing and recording musician himself: Stevan gave us very valuable feedback on our music and was extremely supportive when we had to work long ours to finish our album. He even spent an entire night working with us when we had to deliver the master mixes the next morning. Lastly, Stevan's wide knowledge of the music industry can also be of great value to those who need advice in that area. In summary, I highly recommend Granada Studios to any musician looking for top-notch professional recording quality.
Seth is a terrific teacher for both adults and children. Both of my children learn from Seth, one in a personal setting and the other in a band setting and both are thriving and loving playing their instruments. I am taking an adult rock band workshop under Seth's tutelage, and I've never had more fun playing music in my entire life. I look forward to each week's jam session.
The first time I heard the band was 2004. Now, in 2016, I go hear them whenever I can! Their music is always energizing and their passion is infectious! I highly recommend them for any social occasion! Not only will their music make your event memorable, but the way they bring a crowd together to dance and sing will make you want to see them again, just like I do.
Have been taking clarinet and alto sax lessons with Andrew for years. Great teacher who is a master of his craft and is very dedicated to the progression of his students. Takes the time necessary to really help you learn and perfect all areas. He is very skilled in both jazz and classical and can really help his student develop in whichever way they desire. Would highly recommend to anyone who is serious about learning their instrument.
I have been playing guitar for around 20 years, mostly self taught. Over the years, I have tried out various lessons (online, multiple teachers, etc). Never have I experienced such an organized, thoughtful approach to learning your instrument than with Jason Bond. I've been with him for around 6 months. He can cater to your needs, but I prefer to follow his lead. It is like going to your own private music school (Jason is studying for his PhD in music). I am covering the basics of jazz and improving my theory, but also improving my blues/rock abilities. Jason will end your search for the ultimate guitar/music teacher! Also a great guy, thoughtful person, whom I now consider a good friend.
I was recently married on June 17, 2017 in L.A. California! Upon planning for the wedding I was slightly worried about finding the proper music to accommodate my husband's family. They are from France and I wanted them to be able to recognize and connect to the ceremony through the music. On the other hand, my family is Jewish. After doing some research I stumbled across Barbara Ochoa and her band OrKestra International. She sings in several different languages, was so personal and accommodating over the phone I thought I have to listen to her sing and prayed that I would love it. Lucky for me and my fiance, we did just that. We fell in love with her voice and knew instantly we had to book them. She explained how she could do a French song at the ceremory, a trio of European favorites for dinner and an American party band with horns that included the Hora for the dancing portion. On the wedding day Barbara and her band were beyond prepared. She told me “I have all the music covered, don’t worry” at first I though it’s my wedding so I’m going to worry but everything went so smooth all night. Funny everyone was singing along when they did "Volare." So many of the guests that came up to us had the same thing to say: they danced and had a blast. I think she must have handed out about 20 of her cards that night. Thank you Barbara for such a genuine experience that none of us from that night will ever forget.
Natalie has been fantastic to work with! Her instruction through exercises, general tips/suggestions, and specific ideas when working on a particular song has all been stellar and on point throughout my work with her. I feel like I have improved dramatically over the course of our lessons, and my band members have made several comments about my improvement as well. She has an uncanny knack for knowing what I am doing with my breath, diaphragm, throat, mouth, etc., and being able to suggest just the right adjustments to make things sound better and more comfortable to sing. Natalie is a wonderful person, too, very encouraging, supportive, and respectful. I highly, highly recommend her!!
My daughter took guitar lessons from Michael for years. He was great and she learned a lot. She played jazz guitar in Albany middle and highschool jazz bands and continues to play in college.
Ralph is a knowledgeable and patient guitar teacher. He's been willing to go the extra mile and find ways to explain music and musicianship that make sense to me.
In a short time had a beginner performing live with a band in front of co-workers at a party. Kevin used many helpful tips and tricks to help me learn the minor and major chords to play.
We asked a lot with a quick turn around; Brian and his band came through for us and over delivered. They were professional, courteous and played some great music for our engagement party/surprise wedding reception. I would highly recommend them.
Professional, talented musicians. A pleasure to deal with. They get it.
The Refugees are the most authentic Tom Petty tribute band in the nation! The band was named the top tribute band in the entire SF Bay Area in 2009 on KFOX 98.5 FM.
