Tucker is amazing!! My wife and I had the pleasure of having him play at our son's 2nd birthday party and created such a magical day for our son, family and friends. It was one of those afternoons where everyone was smiling and having fun. Tucker's repertoire is endless and he can play and sing everything. He is truly a gifted singer and musician. We are definitely hiring him again
Until I left SoCal for Seattle, for about 3 years I studied guitar with James Musser, master musician and teacher and founder of Peaceland Music. He gave me keys to guitaring development that still keep opening doors to new skills and keener musicianship. It's hard to tone down the superlatives in describing how helpful James can be, but most important, he tunes in to where you are in your development and what approaches suit your learning style best. His engaging temperament makes him incredibly easy to work with and his perceptivity ensures that he gives his students work that challenges without overwhelming. He listens to you so that you learn new ways to listen to yourself and grow as a musician. I've had several guitar teachers over the years, and none has surpassed James, who has earned my highest rating.
We hired Summer Swee-Singh for our 2015 holiday party. She is very professional and her solo helped create a festive mood. Summer is Awesome! Pankow's Holiday Committee
When we decided to hire a pianist instead of dj for our reception we new we'd get a different vibe, we weren't prepared for the wonderful treat Vince provided us. He brought a level of sophistication and grace to our event that allowed our guests to not only enjoy his talents, but to still engage with each other and take in the event simultaneously. Vince was well prepared, punctual, and ready to go. In chatting with him I found him to be incredibly personable and quite friendly. His musical ability is top notch, with a wide knowledge of and a variety of stylings. Thanks to Vince for an unforgettable evening!
I'm currently taking singing lessons with Lou, something I've never done before. My initial intention reason was to step into my deep fear of singing in front of others, and what I'm discovering with Lou's mentoring is that I can actually sing. He's patient, laid back, and a professional musician with a formal education in music and talented on a number of instruments as well. So far, having fun, singing tunes I enjoy, and making a ton of progress in a relatively short period of time.
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've seen Kimberly play & she is a great player ... when I got to study with her I found her lesson materials well put together, organized & full of useful music exercises which helped me go from being a seasoned player (percussionist) intimidated by the idea of learning to solo on guitar to advancing to her special ensemble class where I would solo & where I learned to handle the fear thru live playing ... she will go to great lengths to help U understand song theory by charting out chords & showing U what scales can be used for soloing ... whatever level one is at students young & old see results ... plus she put in time to chart out a favorite song for part of my lesson ... meaning she has a great ear & is able to take difficult music concepts & make the info easy to digest ... so much music so little time is how I've felt after a lesson ... thats been my experience with Kimberly as a student ... and that's this reporters opinion!
Stefano is the only reason I still play drums. He has really helped me focus my playing and technique to be a better drummer, and musician.
My family feels very fortunate to be musically connected with Mr. Damien Smith My son, Corey, has been taking guitar lessons from him for the last two years and he has really made major strides as a young musician. The skills, knowledge, support and flexibility that Damien provides has kept my son excited and dedicated to learn more! Not to mention that he also has a refurbished home studio with an array of tech equipment and musical instruments to record your music - which is a bonus! We highly recommend him as an instructor! He's one very cool, nice guy!
We hired Tyler for my sister's birthday party. He was extremely professional throughout the entire process... from the first time we contacted him to the end of the actual event. He responded immediately to any of my queries via text or email. The contract and payment process was very straightforward and easy. The set up was a breeze because he provides everything. He encouraged us to be involved in choosing the music and asked for direction on our desired "mood" for the party. He was very keen on making our evening exactly how we envisioned it!! He showed up on time. He wore a suit which added a touch of class. Most importantly, his sax playing was simply beautiful. We are music lovers and some of our children are professional musicians so I think we are pretty good judges when it comes to musical ability. Tyler was top notch!! Thanks to Tyler, our night turned out exactly how we envisioned it!! Only thing disappointing was that I had to be a host. I would have preferred to just sit and listen!! Thank you, thank you Tyler! Hope to be able to hire you again sometime soon.
To sum up our experience with Rob Reynolds in one word is simply "OUTSTANDING". We booked Rob for our wedding this past November and what a class act he was. He's easy going and fun to work with. Frankly, he blew everyone away at our wedding ceremony with his impeccable talent. We received numerous of kudos and praise from our family and friends after they experienced Rob's performance. Everyone was extremely impressed. Rob Reynolds is the number one guitarist extraordinaire for any occasion. We recommend his services again and again, you won't regret it!
Fantastic vocalist and musician! Hired for a small, intimate wedding needing low-key acoustic music that was done perfectly. Received several compliments from our guests on the quality of music and caliber of talent! Thank you again for making our celebration a great enjoyment for everyone present!
Mark helped us make our 40th wedding anniversary a big hit @ the LaCanada Country Club. We loved his style & music dinner hour impressive how he walk thru with his sax and played to each table with just the right tone. he played upbeat dancing & good listening music ..Can't go wrong with Mark on the saxophone. Fantastic!!! will hire again in a heartbeat All Good. Earl & Brenda DeWitt
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!
Ainur is one of the best violinists I had ever worked with! She is a top professional musician and is also very diplomatic and caring.
Very professional band and awesome musicians. We had a blast!
Been awesome working with Jason! I've always had an interest in becoming a better musician, but the routine of picking up books that are too complex to fully grasp was always daunting. He's helped tremendously with simple breakdowns and in-depth analysis of music theory and composition, as well as technique and application. I really look forward, not only to the future sessions, but the homework I'm assigned to perfect my craft.🤘
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!
Just what I was looking for in a jazz piano teacher! He listened to my goals and is crafting a teaching strategy to make me a better musician while enjoying the process. Looking forward to more piano lessons in the future. He also teaches saxophone.
Great musician! Can do many genres of music! Hire this guy and you won't be disappointed 😎
Alex is a very professional, wonderful guitarist, has variety of music repertoire, I saw his outstanding performances several time and would recommend him for any type of event. Looking forward to hear him playing again.
