We needed a musician to do some music and composing for a large conference. We were also hoping to find some one who could do some freestyle rap/verse work. I can't believe we found Tucker! He did all of those things with such professionalism, creativity, and talent. He started the conference with some instrumental piano and guitar music that he wrote especially for the conference. During cocktails he wowed us with a concert of cover tunes and his own original music. At the end of the night, he did a freestyle rap/verse that incorporated all the high points of the conference. My colleagues and I were in awe! They have all asked that we book him again for the conference next year and you can bet we will!
When you're getting married, you want all the people around you to not only do the jobs they've been hired to do, but you want them to exude a supportive, happy, encouraging, can-do energy: Mr. Gilmartin does all of that, and more. He arrived super early for the event, dressed appropriately, and with a big smile on. He had learned a song that we asked him to learn for our processional, and paced it exactly right for walking and to end exactly when the bride arrived at the altar (I still don't know how he managed that). He was great at taking cues and last-minute ceremony instructions, and -- oh yes, did I mention? -- he is a GREAT guitarist! He can switch seamlessly from Latin to Brazilian to classical to jazz to pop or folk without missing a beat. Later, at the reception he took requests and was fun for the guests at our small wedding, showing tremendous social as well as musical skill. Mr. Gilmartin will bring you no problems, only solution, and beautiful, beautiful music for your special day. I recommend him highly.
When we decided to hire a pianist instead of dj for our reception we new we'd get a different vibe, we weren't prepared for the wonderful treat Vince provided us. He brought a level of sophistication and grace to our event that allowed our guests to not only enjoy his talents, but to still engage with each other and take in the event simultaneously. Vince was well prepared, punctual, and ready to go. In chatting with him I found him to be incredibly personable and quite friendly. His musical ability is top notch, with a wide knowledge of and a variety of stylings. Thanks to Vince for an unforgettable evening!
Could not have been a more perfect party! Summer was very professional from start to finish. Her playing was amazing! She weaves effortlessly through contemporary, classical and holiday music without a pause. Not only would I highly recommend her, we will be having her back for our next party. Thank you Summer, you made the party one to remember for everyone. Thanks, Dan
Lara is very good with classical music on the piano. Her best and my personal favorite is her rendition of Requiem for a Dream. I have never been disappointed when hearing her play.
Mr. Edwards does meticulous work! I have worked with many contractors that do not do the quality of work that Corey does! My kitchen is beautiful!! He did a complete remodel of my home and I am extremely happy with everything he has done! He is someone who goes above and beyond to do a great job!
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.
It was very nice, he is punctual, a great pianist and supportive of creative endeavours.
My daughter, Julia, has been working with Mark since we moved to California 3 years ago. Mark is extremely "patient, kind, knowledgable, dedicated and attentive", according to my daughter. Julia has grown into a strong pianist as she's worked with Mark while enjoying fun and enriching experiences at the same time rather than placing unneeded pressure on her. He has pushed her talent to its fullest extent, while giving her positive feedback. We are very thankful to have Mark as Julia's piano teacher.
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!
BoomBox Heroes was one of the best decisions that we could have made for our wedding. They were accommodating to making their setlist to our desires. They offered fun outfit themes that we chose. I asked for some special requests, and they learned the 2 songs for us; both of which turned out great! When the big day came, they had top-quality sound equipment, lights, stage settings, and sound/light/video techs. It was a full-service for a very affordable cost! They even allowed me to come up and sing with them! There is no doubt that they were the hit of our wedding, and made it a party that would not be forgotten. As an individual that is very familiar with the music world and scene, I found BoomBox Heroes to be top-notch professionals, performers, musicians, and most of all-- A PARTY! I recommend them to the fullest!
Lucas is great! Equally at home with country, blues and gospel, as he is with David Bowie or Pink Floyd or classical or jazz or whatever. He is a ardent lover of many musical styles and an enthusiastic teacher! I got to learn by choosing songs I wanted to play, he took time to transcribe the chords and turn into valuable lessons. Great experience, great guy!
Jam is an excelent pianist , but as a student you need more a compassionate teacher, one that have the music passion n the human conpasion so he can have you motivated, n interested in your next class or next piece you will be studying. He is awesome !!!
Emily played the harp at our wedding on August 25th 2012. She was incredible and extremely professional. There is something about having a harp play during the ceremony and when I walked down the aisle, it was so much more elegant and personal than having a recorded song play. It was like a real live fairytale. the harp is so classic for a wedding in my opinion and I had always wanted the harp played during the ceremony at my own wedding. I feel so blessed that I had Emily to play for me. I didn't have to stress or worry about anything, she made me feel so relaxed and confident that it would be everything I had ever dreamed of. It was so much more and the complements I got on the class and elegance of my ceremony blew me away.
Dave was such a pleasure to work with. After doing extensive research on entertainment for my wedding, I finally ran across Dave's page on here and reviewed his work on his website and loved what I heard. I had a small wedding of about 22 close family guests but I wanted it to be special and he was very accommodating. He brought different instruments to set different settings for my party. I like to think of my wedding as a very glamorous party for close friends and he was such a pleasure. All my guests loved our entertainment...we had him for our ceremony and cocktail hour, during dinner and a wine tasting and a dance. When I met with him.....I requested him to play 3 songs and asked him to set the settings for the events that were taking place and he was fantastic all around...after trying to work with others, Dave was so great compared to the demands of other entertainers. He was great and very reasonably priced for the work that he provides....he such a talented man and am so thankful to have come across him and have him play for us.
JIM IS A VERY TALENTED PIANIST--KNOWS ALL THE TUNES & MAKES EACH EVENT FUN & PERSONAL--A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY EVENT!!
Joe is not the stuffy piano player you see most places... he's a fun, funny guy with a great sense of what music is appropriate for your event and he'll make all your guests feel special! Terrific singer and piano player - highly recommend!
I have seen Natalie play a few times and I am always impressed. She plays a wide range of songs and it's very entertaining. She had a list with about 100 different songs that she covers, but the best part is she had a few albums of her original music that I was able to take home. Keep on rockin' Natalie.
I would highly recommend Dr. Daniel Lessner as a piano instructor/composer, consultant in the music industry utilized in a personal teaching environment or advanced training of academic achievement.
