Tucker provided a great environment of fun classic rock music for my daughter's graduation party. The kids and adults enjoyed listening and dancing to the music. Would definitely hire him again.
How can I say enough about Aaron Gilmartin's ability as a guitar teacher? When I came to him for lessons, I literally had to learn parts for a tour with a band in Europe, and I had barely ever picked up a guitar! With clear explanations, great practice ideas, and encouragement, he got me over my fear of playing in public. Listen to his advice, and you too will be playing guitar in no time. I can't recommend him highly enough.
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!
First of all, Steve is a very competent, formally-trained musician. He knows his theory, tonal harmony, scale modes, everything you could want to turn yourself into a more complete musician on the deepest levels. On the more practical side, Stephen wants to teach you what you want to learn. Whether it's rock, jazz or anything in between, Stephen is well-rounded enough play and to speak competently about it all. Great guy. Very happy with my lessons.
I was so lucky to have found Damien to teach my young son to play the guitar! My son had never played before, but Damien was able to have him playing real music in a few short weeks. Damien has an amazing ear for music and has been teaching my son to play all of his favorite video game tunes. Also, my son looks forward to sharing the antics of his weekly routine with his ultra cool rock star guitar teacher, and Damien is always patient enough to listen ;-)
Reckless was the host band for my wife's recent surprise birthday party. They were professional in every way. Kim was always responsive to texts and emails as the date got closer. On the night of the event they were an absolute pleasure. So many of the attendees were impressed with their set list and musicality. I would highly recommend them as a classic rock cover band.
Taylor created a very professional, radio ready song for me. He works extremely fast and knows how to construct modern music that sounds like he hired a full band. The mix was fantastic music and singer alike. I highly recommend Taylor for your project.
Steven was a pleasure to communicate with- we discussed all details and I am looking forward to him coming to our school to rock the piano for our teacher appreciation day!
Ron was very professional. Showed up on time and played beautifully! He can play many types of music. Even though we had him play for our mother's 90th birthday, he can play everything from swing, Latin, jazz, modern, pop, and rock 'n roll. A plus is that he sings very well, too. Highly recommend.
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!
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
The John Brown Band played the Redondo Beach 4th of July Block Party and had the whole neighborhood rockin' out all night long. What a party!! After I heard them play, I knew I wanted to hire them for my wedding in San Diego on August 29. We had a great experience working with John and would recommend them in a heartbeat. The #1 comment from our wedding guests was how awesome the band was!! Upbeat song selection, dance-ability, and timing were perfect, even with no rehearsal on the Bridal Party Entrance!!! They even played a very special song (Harvest Moon) which I had totally forgotten to request - just perfect. And we got some GREAT pictures. :)
Gregg is an amazing musician. He is one of the best pianists in the business and is extremely knowledgeable. Everything from jazz to gospel to funk to rock- he can do it all and he does it with SOUL! He's been playing, teaching and arranging for over 40 years and he is a phenomenal teacher. Gregg is definitely someone you will want to work with when you are ready to take your musicianship to the next level. He is an expert at theory, improvisation, arranging, and composition, as well as technique and putting together a great sounding group. He was my teacher beginning in high school and throughout college, and has continued working with me and many of my colleagues ever since. Gregg Tomlinson is a musician's musician and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to advance their musical education or to anyone who is looking for a top-notch musician for a lesson or a gig- he is the finest piano player I have ever worked with!
They were fantastic they made our party so great. They were so easy to work with, flexible, upbeat and great entertainers. They knew how to get the party stared. We had terrible hot weather to deal with and they never skipped a beat. They're interaction with the guests coming out into the crowd making everyone have fun and feel included. If you are lucky enough to get this band you can know your party will be a success and fun. I'm already trying to think of another party just to have them back.
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!
Hugo played for me at a surprise party for my husband. He was fantastic! So many people commented on how great the music was. I would hire Hugo again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!
I never realized how important music was at a wedding until we had ours! DJ Ty was the highlight of our wedding - all of our guests were raving about him all night and after. When I booked him, I was worried as any bride is planning their wedding. He was the one vendor that told me not to worry about a thing, that he would take care of everything. I simply put him in touch with our coordinator and told him what we were looking for. He had our guests singing along to every song - our venue said they've never seen anything like that! What did we want? 90's R&B. He played songs I hadn't heard in ages but was super stoked about. DJ Ty is super thoughtful about his song selection and you can definitely tell him what you want in advance. At the same time, if you give him some freedom to play with it you'll see how masterful he is! If you're paying a DJ to simply play your playlist, you might as well plug in an iPod. I've seen DJ Ty play live prior to our wedding, and he has a wide range of music knowledge. Whether you want heartfelt, cheesy, classics, and pop or you want rock, hip hop, and soundtrack pieces from your favorite movies he can do it all. No matter what he will get your guests going! Great service, value, and person. Highly, highly recommended!
Mark was on time with a full catalogue of music. He was outgoing and affable. Very eager to please. Completely satisfied. Will definitely use him again.
Very Professional, excellent top of the line equipment, reasonable rate! 100% recommended!
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!
