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!

Groove Factory was a great band at our corporate holiday party! From the initial coordination to the day of the event, they were a pleasure to work with. Our guests enjoyed the entire evening - the music, the interaction, live karaoke, the dancing. I highly recommend them.

Holy $h*t, they were absolutely amazing! I'm the groom and I usually don't use expletives or write reviews (wife's orders), but the Republic of Music deserves both. I've never been to a wedding with a live band, so when they came to ours (also my wife's vision) I was so blown away. They add this completely warm energy and unique experience to the surrounding that allowed everyone to relax, loosen up, and just party! They played anything you wanted, they covered mainly top 40 by our request, but they sounded better then the original artists. We didn't have a lot of time to enjoy the band as we were taking pics and making rounds, but I saw everyone having a good time...I even saw my mom dancing, she is an Asian Tiger Mom, and even she was dancing!! They came with a full band, 3 vocalist, AND a DJ; they also brought lighting. So for the price - it was definitely worth it as hiring a DJ on it's own was almost that price. We are also a muslim couple and they were more than accommodating to any request that we had in terms of attire and music selection. If you want your wedding to have the extra special touch that increases the experiences to both you and your guests, get this band, they will make an impression that will last forever.

I would like to tell anyone looking for a professional and talented person, duo, or group of musicians to enhance or lead an event to look no further Bill Harris can most certainly fill the bill for you. Bill & Stephanie individually or as a duo have been and continue to entertain my clients and guests for a couple of years now. They are currently performing weekly here for me at the Old town Tequila Factory. They do a fantastic job jamming on the Steel Drums on our outside patio or moving inside to the enclosed patio for a lighter marimba and oboe sound. Bill has also taken care of our needs for our special events and on location catering functions. Bill and Stephanie have performed in period costume for us at Christmastime performing music and singing carols looking like they just stepped out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Bill has also brought in additional drummers, guitarists, and a bassist to make the band for our event at the Sheriffs Museum. They are great performers and truly great people. I always look forward to the next appearance.

We recently had the pleasure of having Marcela and Craig play at our wedding. As expected, the music was excellent. A little less expected, we had a lot of help with setup and even with the ceremony audio. I don't think a band could have done more to make the entertainment at our reception more worry free, and it would not have been the same without them to keep the dance floor full.

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.

Jordo makes his own music which is amazing and also plays covers! I loved having him at my venue. He can perform any song you want. I have never heard anything quite like him! He uses his loop pedals to make one guitar sound like a huge band. I can liken him to is Ed Sheeran. He is reasonably priced but there is no way he will be be able to keep his prices so low for so long. He can perform for anything. Weddings, shows, parties, and just about anything. If you call him he would love to help you out!

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! -

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 are a wedding, corporate, private and cruise band. We offer configurations from 4 musicians to 6 musicians. We are extremely professional with a significant amount of experience (all have at least 20 years of experience). We play what the client and audience want to hear, and we have complete volume control. We play at the appropriate volume that not only the event calls for, but also the volume the event requires at different times. We are known for our fun showmanship, getting people to sing and dance, and just generally have a great time! We will make your event and special day a great event, to be sure!
