Having Tucker at my daughter's first birthday was one of the highlights of our party! He was a pleasure to work with and always so nice and responsive to messages. He arrived right on time and the party really took of when he started to perform. Everyone was AMAZED by his energy and stamina. He played fun and engaging music for everyone especially the kids. I highly recommend Tucker for any of your events. Will definitely hire Tucker again!!
Emo at Granted Records worked with our daughter to prepare her voice for theater auditions and an upcoming vocal performance. He's a wonderful, energetic and positive person and my daughter found him to be a pleasure to work with. She learned so much with Emo's direction and help. Great experience; would definitely hire him again.
Lou's experience, professionalism, and flexible approach is going to make a big difference in my musicianship.
I've been taking lessons from Lara for about six months, and I can say with full confidence that I made the right choice. I had never played an instrument before, and had rhythm like Helen Keller. Now I feel like nothing in the world of piano is unconquerable. Her attitude is nothing but positive and vibrant. She's very encouraging and has a knack for making every triumph feel important. Her passion for her craft is obvious, and is definitely a big part of what motivates me to practice on my own. I recently had my first recital (something which I never imagined I would be able to do). I was shocked that I was able to learn a piece and play it in front of strangers in such a short period of time. But the practices Lara teaches made it easy. I didn't worry about memorizing the piece because she doesn't just teach how to play songs, she teaches how to understand the music. She didn't have me play the same song over and over again, she teaches the fundamentals so you can painlessly learn and practice, even on your own. I would highly recommend Lara, for anyone who already plays and wants to get a better understanding, or for newcomers. I can't imagine how dull learning piano would have been without her.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.
I used LadyMarry for a day of coordinator and DJ. It was great! I found them within a few weeks of my wedding, so I was worried about things being last minute - but they totally came through and everything was flawless! Melissa was our coordinator and she brought along 2 assistants to help set things up for my wedding. She came to our rehearsal as well.
Amanda is a Very busy ,dedicated performer herself and has a long history of singing . She knows the tricks of the trade and is very passionate about Music! She is great with children and big kids like Me! :) Always encouraging Me to study more and to get out and sing if there is an opportunity. Not only is She a Great Teacher but a Lifelong Friend!!! 5 Stars!!!! Peter
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!
We loved Reckless! I threw a surprise party for my husband and they played what I requested, very professional, on time and overall a great experience. Kim was great to work with and made the process very easy. I would definitely hire them again!
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.
I must say that I am not naturally talented when it comes to music, but Michael is very patient with me despite my challenges. He is a great teacher and a skilled musician. He breaks things down to make even the most difficult things easer. I always wanted to play "lead guitar" and was never quite able to get it right... now I can honestly say that I even surprise myself as I can actually play along to songs and improvise some cool lead riffs! Highly recommended!
My son has been learning the guitar for over a year now at two different music schools. His progress was slow and lackluster at best. The school and teachers seemed to be just going through the motions and each time I talked to them they would just nod their heads and say "he's doing great." Progress was S-L-O-W... It wasn't until I tried these one on one private classes with Steve that my son showed immediate weekly progress and improvement. It really does make a big difference when you find a good teacher who actually knows how to teach and push a kid the right way. I'm thankful for meeting Steve and would highly recommend him as a teacher. He cares and likes teaching kids. You can't pretend with something like that... Thanks Steve!
Bob did an excellent job at our party. He was very entertaining. People enjoyed his music. I would definitely recommend Bob for your event too.
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!
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. :)
My daughter had a wonderful experience dealing with Cindy. She's is flexible with our busy schedule. My daughter learn french horn from cindy since middle school. She is now playing in her high school band and was able to played anything quickly . She owed it to cindy for having good tone. She improved very quickly through Cindy methods of teaching. Cindy is patients and also took real interest in my daughter ability. I'm glad my daughter have such a great teacher. Thank you Cindy!
Worked with my son to improve for school band. Worked with him on his level. Was patient, reliable and my son loved him.
Chase has taught my high school son electric guitar for 2 years. Apart from being extremely knowledgable about music, Chase is also an excellent educator -- something that I have found to be a rare quality in guitar teachers. On top of that, Chase really cares about his students -- both in terms of musical progress and general well-being. He is genuinely committed to his students. His broad smile when his students perform says it all!
I hired Gaku and Dwayne to perform at my wedding ceremony. They were AMAZING!!!! It was a Catholic ceremony, so they had to learn a few new songs. It was as if they had performed those songs a million times- you would've never known that they had just learned them. They sounded so beautiful together and really added something extra special to my BIG day. The highlight was definitely "Ave Maria." I cried because it was the most beautiful version I had ever heard. Do yourself a favor and hire them for an event!
We are very professional in everything we do and how we conduct ourselves.
