We hired Tucker to be our guitarist for our wedding ceremony. I highly recommend him if you are looking for entertainment in your event! He went out of his way to do rehearsals to make sure everything is on point. He is very easy to work with and he did an amazing job!
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 performed for a small group of us and we were all very impressed and very happy with how it all went. I had asked her to blend in some 90's bands into her repertoire (my wife's favorite music!) and the choices were fantastic. She arrived early, played far longer than we had originally allowed time for (which was great) and was a very pleasant and easy person to get along with and communicate with. I'd hire her again in a heart beat.
I love this guy! Vince is so welcoming and easy going. If you want your wedding or event to have beautiful music you must hire him! He's a professional who knows how to make sure your event is what you want! I will be recommending him to everyone I know! :)
We had a retirement party for a 28 year employee. The band was prompt professional and full of very good musicians. I'm now looking for excuses to hire the happiness jazz band for other events
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.
Thank you all my wedding team! They provided me everything I need for a perfect wedding. Joanne and her team know this industry very well and assigned the wedding coordinator, photographer, stylist, venue, DJ to us. They helped me get rid of all time consuming vendor calls!!! Also, they have very stylish app to make everything organized and trackable. Very cool!!! Highly recommend the whole team!!!
We hired Mr. Varnell for our wedding and could not have been happier with his performance! Not only a true musical talent, but an honest professional who can walk you through the "in's and out's" with ease on an already hectic day. I was so happy we did not hire a tacky DJ or the same old organ/piano player for our wedding...but instead brought the elegance and uniqueness of the saxophone. We received so many compliments from our guests. Would most definitely hire him again!
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!
Wedding music was fantastic. Rob worked with us beforehand to chose the perfect songs for different parts of the ceremony. He was early and stayed until the last people left. Everyone commented on how beautiful the music was throughout. And he literally saved me by lending me his bowtie after my attempt to tie one failed. Highly recommend.
Scott is an amazing musician and was the perfect backdrop to our daughters outdoor wedding. He played impeccably and all our guests commented on the relaxed and romantic atmosphere he helped create. He was easy to work with in spite of our many changes. Truly fantastic!!
The Sweet 16 party was a blast and Reckless was a hit! The music was fantastic and the vocals were so Rock n' Roll. We had both teens and adults and so many of my guests asked me where I found the band and commented how amazing and fun Reckless was at the party. The band was overall just fantastic. Only one drawback, in between sets we played iPod music that our guests danced too as well. Often when they began the next set the iPod song was cut off right in the middle. Other than that, absolutely no complaints. They were on time, did a great job and created a great fun experience for the guests. The highlight of the night was their grand finale with show-stoppers like "Rock n roll all night," "Don't stop believin" and "Livin on a prayer." To top it off they got my daughter on stage (who the party was for) and had her rockin' out. They gave her an experience and birthday she will never forget. Old and young alike, Reckless was a hit and a favorite. They put on an excellent show and were very professional. I will definitely have them back again for other parties.
It was my parents 60th wedding anniversary and Bobby made the event special and meaningful by singing their favorite songs from a long time ago .Bobby's performance was wonderful! I would recommend him and will hire him again. Thanks so much Bobby!
WOW! What an amazing band! We were absolutely blown away by these amazing musicians it is clear that they are all at the top of the field. We chose to book the 6 Piece with both male and female singers and boy! can they really really SING. They sounded amazing, looked fresh and fun and had such energy every single person at our wedding was on there feet even my dad who is 83. We had an absolute blast and everyone could not stopped raving about the band they asked if we stole them from American Idol!!!! I can tell you from the moment we were in contact they were communicative professional and handled everything, even thinking of things we haven't even thought of yet like lighting and sound requirements. The MC was charismatic, funny and charming and was able to tell our story with such class that my wife and I were in tears. We looked around for 6 months before choosing a band most great wedding bands were way way out of the budget, they were reasonably priced and for what you get which is one of the best bands i've ever seen at a wedding I actually think we should have been paying double or more like some of the bands we first looked at that weren't even as good. So thats my rant. Amazing. Blown Away. Memories for a lifetime. They do book up early were lucky we had our wedding on a Sunday so it wasn't a problem. If it was on Saturday we may not have been as lucky!
He stole the show! (In a good way of course) Perfect addition to my wedding cocktail hour!
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!
Awesome band and all around great guys. We had a blast and they sound just like the artists and high energy.
From the first time I talked to Neil Stipp I know he would be the perfect person to play at my wedding on November 22nd, 2014. Before my wedding happened, I had never even attended a wedding, so I wasnt sure what music to play or how anything really went in a wedding ceremony. The first time I talked to him he explained everything perfectly, and he hummed different songs so I had an Idea of the type of music he played and the songs he suggested.(since I had no clue about any of it! Haha) He always stayed in contact with me and made sure everything was going well. He came and set up a week early to figure out where he would be set up and did trials of different songs and them in different tunes. Then on the day of the wedding he played and all my guests loved him. We got married outdoors, and he brought his own keyboard and amp.. my guests said it set the perfect mood for a wedding when he was playing. I couldnt have asked for anybody better to play the music for my wedding. Thank you Neil!
Molly was amazing! She was professional from start to finish! She is amazing! We were lucky to have found her on such short notice and not only was she our officiant, but she sang our first dance as husband and wife. She did a beautiful version of "Sabes" by Reik. It left everyone at the wedding surprised. Not too many people have someone sing while the couple dances. But it wasn't just that, she gave us a ceremony that everyone was talking about. Thank you Molly for your great service. Definitely recommended.
Alex played at my wedding and he was great! Very talented. I recommend him!
