Everything! He understands the business side of music and he was the only vendor I did not lose sleep over as I planned my husband's 70th birthday party. The J Mann band is professional and offered us a wide variety of the songs we loved and asked for. Justin's voice, their harmony, and rhythm were fun to dance to and they brought each song to life, complimenting the original artists beautifully. We had a wonderful time and would recommend them to anyone, anytime. Makes me want to have another party just so we can invite them back and listen!
Chris is a wonderful guitar/music teacher and has inspired my daughter's beginning guitar playing. She really looks forward to each lesson and they share a mutual love of music.
Northstar just played at my hubby's Birthday Bash this past weekend, and once again they WERE AWESOME and so much fun! They made our party a blast for everyone! We had so many tell us "what a great party" it was! We had it outdoors in the sunshine and Northstar was so accomodating to the space of our yard and did all the pre-set up! They come fully equipped. They play all genres of music, but they knew exactly what our crowd would like! I've known Northstar for years and had them play at my events before, and they have never EVER let me or my crowd down! They get everyone hopping! Too much fun!

I've had the pleasure to experience Ken's panang curry soup. I must say it was exquisite. With a perfect combination of fresh herbs, succulent seafood, and just the right amount of seasoning and spices, I would have to describe this dish as one decadent cuisine. I give Ken 5 stars and an A+...Excellent, It will be my pleasure to enjoy what ever dish he prepares, and I would definitely recommend him. " a culinary artist"
As a professional musician (guitar and vocals) that does not read music, I have had a few lessons with this guy to help with my reading of music, theory, and soloing. He presents everything to me in a very understandable manner and exudes the utmost patience in getting me to the next level. I have never had music lessons before so this seemed daunting at first but now I have broken through long standing plateaus and I am reinvigorated to push myself to the next level. I will definitely be continuing this approach with Mr violin in the future.
Review for West Coast Talent House: Describe the job. My name is Jim Spears. I hired, Raynaldo Martine, West Coast Talent House, to help make the music side of my Television Business look good. What went well. As it turned out, West Coast Talent House produced over 20 songs for me during a duration of two years. I was very successful and popular with the television industry.Raynaldo Martine , West Coast Talent House, made me good in front of my clients. He is a very talented artist in the music business. With more than 30 years of experience in the music business, Raynaldo Martine has the talent, insight, and professionalism to help you put your ideas to music. Great care is taken to give your songs a natural sound and feel. Most of the songs that are recorded here are "mail-order demos", meaning you can send us your rough draft, and you'll be returned a polished product ready for pitching to recording artists, or to use for your own purposes. And what could be better? I wish Raynaldo Martine , West Coast Talent House, could have stayed working for my department for a longer time. Rate: *****
It was the second time I had the opportunity to listen to a solo harpist right in front of my eyes. What a sophisticated and classy musical instrument that can produce breath taking sounds! I did not know that until I heard Stephen's live concert. I am a 40 year old woman who loves every kind of live music and have seen performances from around the world. The very first time I had an encounter with a harp player was at a resort in Cabo San Lucas. A vacationing lady who brought her small travel size harp had played such an enchanting soft sounded music by the edge of pool with the Pacific Ocean in the background. Even though I don't know anything about the harp (other than I enjoy drinking Harp and Guinness🍻) it was well received by all listening and helped me relax and fall sleep. Stephan's concert was the second live solo harp performance I have heard and his one hour long performance composed of three pieces absolutely enriched my life! This time, the sounds of the harp kept me wide awake and I was intrigued with a great interest. It made sense why he is capable of performing the way he did to this particular group of people after understanding his harp training and educational background. He understands his diverse audience, knows just the right pieces to play and knows to include just the right amount of interesting contemporary techniques in his piece. He possess an amazing quality to tell a story and is able to depict a picture through his harp playing. One piece I remember but cannot recall the name was a piece Stephan described as sounds escaping into the universe! I really felt like l was traveling with the sounds of the harp rising to the sky and escaping thru the last layer of the atmosphere and into space. The way he performed his harp literally took my spirit on a space journey. Maybe my spirit was the first one to reach the Milky Way from planet earth! A few years ago, I had an amazing experience in the Amazon basin looking up at nothing but the millions of stars in the dark sky. His music really brought me back to that out of this world experience! I love everything about nature and the universe; this was such an experience! Stephan's performance truly enlightened me and broke through my preconception of the harp and harp player. When and if I were to think of the harp, I always pictured a white lady with blond hair wearing a white lacy long dress and a hand woven wreath crown made of wild flowers playing soft and slow harp music on a nice grassy field for fairies in the forest. The lady in Cabo fit into my image of this harp player even though she was a brunet and wearing sunglasses on her head instead of a wreath and a sundress instead of a white lacy dress. Stephan's harp performance showed harp music from various angles and in such an intricate web of sounds and techniques. I never knew that the harp can do all that. When it is played by someone like Stephan who followed his passion and studied the harp at the best harp region in the world, it can. He developed and possess the essence of being a great teacher, artist, performer, and entertainer. I was honored that I had an opportunity to witness a musical instrument player like Stephan who can have an amazing relationship with his instrument. He truly loves and respects his harp. The soul and skill of Stephan and the spirit of the harp sings and dances so well together. Undeniable magical sounds are crafted when two of them play together. It reminds of me of a children's story, " tree song". If you can open your heart and listen, you maybe lucky enough to hear what I heard through my heart at the concert. You will go home with the feeling of joy. We can not teach people to be passionate of something or be happy. When you see and hear Stephan's live harp performance, you will see a great example of how important it is to have something passionate in our lives. His performance also translates the meaning of happiness; to be able to share our passion and love with others. Happiness is truly infectious! I think the world harp community is very fortunate to have someone like Stephan as a rising star harpist who can demonstrate the importance of being passionate through his ability to play harp. P.s. I googled many sites to look for a good gift to bring for the harp player since I wanted to bring something to show an appreciation for the invite to the concert. Well, there are a bunch of ugly t-shirts "I pay harp" and mugs. So I brought my favorite beer, Guinness and Harp, as a center piece. People enjoyed drinking the center piece! They are proven to be a good gift for a harp concert! MIKA
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!

I've been a faithful client for the past 4 years and Ryan has always been incredibly professional, down to earth, and reliable. Ryan makes himself very available to his clients and I've always been able to get in touch with him in a reasonable amount of time. In addition to being professional, Ryan is also very personable and makes you feel at ease as you work with him. I always feel comfortable and at home in his studio which helps bring out the best in me and my music. Ryan has an incredible way of giving helpful advice but still giving an artist complete creative freedom and control. This is my favorite studio I've recorded at hands down. Best value and worth every penny.
