Clifford was super professional and played wonderful music for our party. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
Kelly has shared his piano playing talent at the San Francisco Senior Center's monthly birthday party for the past several months. He has won the hearts of our Seniors with his knowledge of so many tunes from past to present. Kelly has a winning combination of patience, wit and charm and he would be a great addition to any event!
WE had two person team come for our daughter's Elmo themed 2nd birthday party. One was a party leader and the other was dressed up in Elmo contume. The elmo was somewhat handicap by his costume and was mostly immobile. The kids has a good time and the party leader kept then engaged with magic tricks and balloon art. In short, Elmo was average and the party leader was great. All in all we are happy with our decision to go with All Star Showgrams.
Ken and I have collaborated on providing entertainment for numerous corporate events, fundraisers, and private parties for over 25 years. He is a first class, honest businessman who I would highly recommend to anyone seeking assistance.
Caroline's band Citizens Jazz were phenomenal! We had them play at our company event and they really blew us all away. Good mix of styles that could accommodate a quieter dinner as well as an upbeat cocktail party. The musicians were extremely talented and even played a few requests! I definitely recommend them and will definitely be hiring them again!
Didier played his magnificent guitar melodies as back ground music at our garden party. The soothing sounds that he can get out of his acoustical guitar is amazing. He played standing on an island in our Japanese garden facing the main patio area and had our guests in awe. Everyone marveled how his music made the party one never to forget! We will definetly have Didier play again at many more events at our home in the future.
Jessica was great! Responded quickly, showed up early and did a great job for our 90s party. Love that she showed up in costume also! Played great music and the party was a huge success! Thanks for a great night! Look forward to the next time!
Andrew and his colleagues played a day concert as entertainment for a party. The sound was terrific and added world class ambience and energy to the event. Andrew himself was great to work with - kind, flexible, professional. Highly recommended to bring your event to life. Thank you Andrew!
I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.
I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.
My wife and I asked Mike to play at our wedding. Mike played before the ceremony and during our cocktail hour. Mike was punctual and professional which is exactly what a wedding needs! I can't tell you how many compliments we received on his behalf from our guests. Mike is a one of a kind talent and my wife and I can't wait to throw another party big enough for Mike's talent. -Rob L.
I hired the Groovy Judy Band for my wedding and was thoroughly impressed by their professionalism, musicianship and choice of songs. They really kept the pace going and everyone - Millennials through Boomers - were dancing and had a great time. I highly recommend Groovy Judy for any event. :-)
Laura has a beautiful, clear singing voice, wonderful musicianship, and all the professionalism I could possibly have asked for. Laura tapped a contra-dance-calling and fiddle-playing friend of hers named Erik, and together they played an upbeat bluegrass line-up for my daughter's farm-themed birthday party at a tractor museum. The best part was the contra dancing, which Erik taught the participants in an easy-to-follow and friendly manner. Everyone got the hang of it and had an absolutely splendid time. Thank you so much, Laura and Erik, for making this event exactly the kind of birthday I'd hoped for my daughter. I really appreciate it.
Elaine is a really talented singer who was on time, fun, polite, and great to work with! She was flexible and asked me for my preferred set list ahead of time and provided an awesome environment for a birthday party. Would highly recommend as well as hire again
Working with Juju Music Edition was so wonderful. He played our tenant holiday party and was perfect for the setting. He was very responsive and easy to submit payment to. We will 100% look for a chance to hire him again in the future!
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!!
Domingo DJed our wedding in May 2014 and people would not get off the dance floor! We wanted a vibe that would make people feel like they were at a party at our house - fun, familiar, relaxed - and Domingo absolutely helped us achieve that. He was also professional, friendly and super easy to work with. Five stars!
Peter is amazing. Not only is he extremely talented but he was such a pleasure to work with when we had him entertain at an event we hosted. His communication was excellent prior to our party, he was prompt the day of and was flexible throughout the event with requests. We enjoyed his music so much we ended up having him perform a couple hours beyond the agreed upon timeframe. He really made our event special and we can’t wait to work with him again.
Martan has been doing a wonderful job teaching my teenage son jazz piano for the past few years. Martan has a proven approach starting at the basics and advancing to very sophisticated techniques at a pace the student can handle. The techniques my son is learning are also directly applicable to playing jazz on other instruments such as the saxophone that my son also plays in his school band.
Professional, talented musicians. A pleasure to deal with. They get it.
