Jason and his group were FABULOUS, so easy to work with, and the music was enjoyed by all!! We had 140+ friends, family, vendors, office, etc from 3 yrs old to 99 years old and we got tons of complements on Jason and the J-Mann band. I will DEFINITELY be calling them for the next party. They brought everything they needed - even their stools and had music playing even when they took breaks. I actually only remember one break (they MUST have taken more) and we had them 4 hours. Jason is a people pleaser and asked me to let him know if there was ANYTHING we needed from him - but the volume of the music was PERFECT and my vendors for the party were dancing to it while THEY sat up. It sure lifted MY spirits because they sat up an hour before the party - while I was still frantically making sure everyone had everything needed.
Mikey and his bandmates have been my band of choice these past 20 years playing for my GEMINI BIRTHDAY BASH. Always great music! Always great fun! GREAT BAND!!!
Josh and I married September 6th at the Scripps Forum in La Jolla and Republic of Music (ROM) made our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!!!! Since I had been planning our wedding from Washington, I didn't get to see the band live prior to our wedding. My dad and siblings went to see ROM play at Club M in Del Mar and they were blown away!! I was already impressed by the reviews and YouTube videos I had seen and read. I knew they were going to be the perfect match for our wedding day and I was totally right!! ROM is professional, fun, amazing and freakishly good at their craft! Vocals were ON POINT and the musicians brought the funk!! We opted to splurge on horns two weeks before the wedding and it was a great decision!! Our guests LOVED the band and their personalities and stage presence set the mood for the night. I cannot say enough about Tiana and how amazing she is to work with. She eased my way from the moment I spoke with her. (I had already booked another band but changed my mind once I was told about ROM) She provided me with piece of mind and made our day run so smoothly. The band did an excellent job keeping our day on schedule and emceed the entire event perfectly. It was really comforting to know that our families could enjoy the evening and not have to worry about making announcements or keeping the night on schedule. Dinner music was amazing, slower songs really allowed you hear just how amazingly talented the vocalists are. As the evening progressed Josh and I did not stop dancing all night along with our guests! My sisters and I also got to be band mates for the day and sing with the band which was pretty epic!! My dad is a man of few words, but he couldn't stop talking about the band for days!! He already said he wants to book ROM for their 40th wedding anniversary!! If you're looking for a band for your big event, stop looking!!! You have found who you are looking for!! ROM will not disappoint! I wish I could crash all the weddings they performed at so I can sing and dance the night away. That's how awesome they are! Thank you ROM for everything!!! Your forever fans, Mr. & Mrs. Calkins!
Gary was extremely professional and easy to work with. The band put on a fantastic show, the feedback from my guests was 100% positive.
Marcela Mendez Duo was perfect for my husbands 50th birthday celebration! They were so easy to work with and wonderful musicians. I will absolutely use them again! Delilah P.
Ron and his musicians were outstanding!! I hired them for a '40s Big Band Pary for 2 hours and did the deliver! They were very much accommodating to our residents and the staff. Very upbeat group of men who sang and danced with our residents, which made all the ladies very happy!The music was spot on and made us all feel like we really were in the 1940s. Very happy with the performance and their attitudes, absolutely one of the best!
The band was so professional!! Arrived on time, dressed appropriately and sounded great! My party was over one hundred people and people were dancing from the moment they started until the very last song. The music selection was varied and appealed to all age groups. Overall an A+!!
What a fantastic team! Lion Bold brings a unique sense of creativity and originality in all projects they create. A few years ago, Lion Bold put together a remarkable video highlighting one of my Marching Band tournaments, not only was it artistically superior in film composition, it became a beloved video for alumni of the program to view and remember a great day. Ryan and Kevin were amazing to work with and tailored their work to capture the special memories we cherished without getting in the way of the moment. Would highly recommend. Great experience, great people, and great art! Thanks guys! -Zak McGaugh, Drum Major of Scripps Ranch High School Marching Band '15/'16
My son Max has been taking lessons with Ed for several years now and we couldn't be happier. Ed is an awesome music teacher with many talents. His knowledge of playing in a band has been a great help for my son. Ed will jump in and play the bass line with Max if needed. I love that he can teach vocals, guitar, bass, and drums and get in there and jam with my son, too. Ed's awesome! I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a music teacher. Terry
We were so glad we chose this band for our wedding. They were spectacular from the solo guitar entrance music, hosting the event, to closing the dance-floor down late night. I don't know how they kept the energy up for the whole night but they played till the very end. They definitely made our big party complete! PS -- I don't like Journey but the band was so good even I sang along!
Hired Chicken Wire for a friends birthday party and they were a major hit! We had a blast dancing to old time rock songs. The band was engaging and entertaining! Our friends had a great time but most especially the guest of honor, our friend, whose birthday we were celebrating, said it was one of the best nights of his life. He got to sing with Chicken Wire! Highly recommend them for your event!
Josie Day is the best in biz. Pure natural talent. This lady is going places in the world. Keep up the great work Josie!!
Jesse and the band did a fantastic job for our birthday party. Played the music that we requested and were very professional. Came on time, started on time and sounded great. I would certainly hire them again for another event.
They were great! Fun professional. Really enjoyed them!
Look no further you have found your DJ! What a fantastic time!!! We booked two live acts for the wedding and a DJ from Kipling Music. Some guests danced to the bands, but the real entertainment didn't start until the DJ started spinning the tunes. Everyone was dancing and singing along to the great musical selection that he played. This was a totally professional show, and at a great price to boot!! I would recommend Kipling Music for any event! -
