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!
We hired Aaron to play acoustic guitar at a small outdoor memorial service for our friend who had passed away. Aaron spent the time to listen to the details of what we were doing, and what we wanted to achieve with his music, which was to be a mellow background while we shared stories about our friend. Aaron provided a good mix of music including songs from the Grateful Dead (our departed friend's favorite) plus some of his own music in the Spanish style. Aaron arrived early, and was flexible with our timing which ran a little late. He really added a beautiful element to our evening, and I hope to have the opportunity to enjoy his music again.
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!
John has been teaching my daughter guitar for over four years now. He does a great job of balancing fun and teaching new skills; thus, serious and casual musicians will find a home here. I've also noticed that he even teaches my daughter's old teacher's kids and a number of other kids from school. If I had John teaching me when I was growing up, I know I would have continued playing the piano.
Summer is absolutely amazing. Words can't even express the talent this girl has. She takes your ideas and makes them a million times better! She is a true piano prodigy that is able to take any song or idea you give her and bring it to life. We had Summer play at our wedding of 2/15/15. She performed "Gone, Gone Gone" by Phillip Phillips for the processional, "Canon in D" (even played the specific parts requested when the bride walked down, and "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz after we were pronounced husband and wife. Summer also sent us samples of the songs before the ceremony so we were assured of what we were going to hear the wedding day. We were so thankful to have a live pianist play at our wedding, it's so much more personable and romantic than DJ music. People complimented our pianist Summer throughout the reception and still now,, weeks after our wedding. Thanks Summer for your talents and beauty. Very professional.
I have had a few music instructors and Lou is by far he best. Many instructors are accomplished musicians but few can actually mentor and teach the craft. Lou is persistent and very creative in how he gets you to understand music. If you struggle with a concept he comes at it from several angles until it clicks with you. You learn how to listen to a song, determine the key, the shape and ultimately play the song .... no tabs or other crutches! Patient and fun, I look forward to my lessons!
Fabulous job playing Hawaiian music for my retirement party! Very considerate of sound level so conversations could take place. Professional thoughtful group!
I have been a student of Kim's for the past 4 years. I have had and am still having a wonderful experience. She is a very skilled guitar player and instructor. Her teaching studio is a comfortable and private area, and in addition she has a recording studio separate from her regular teaching studio. The recording studio is where her students get to meet and team up with other musicians and learn the process of playing together and making recordings. This experience at playing as a group with a drummer and other musicians has been invaluable training. Especially if one wishes to go professional. Kim has an extremely sound knowledge of music theory and a way of teaching that varies depending on her students. I would highly recommend Kim as a teacher for all levels of musicians that need additional skill to add to their current knowledge.
I came to Stefano as a beginning player with a broad range of musical tastes, but minimal reading and playing skills. In the time I've spent with him, he's brought me to a level where, now, I have two running gigs in Los Angeles! I find that whatever I want to learn and practice, he’s got the curriculum and understands it. Plus he's cool... You will learn a ton, and have fun!
Hello, My name is Abigail. Im 11 years old and have been taking guitar lessons from Damien for about 2 years now. He has taught me how to read music. I have learned step by step, no rushing into music whatsoever. In the beginning of my lessons, Damien gave me a booklet/guitar notebook to record every lesson. My first lessons were basically getting to know music and my guitar. The next couple of lessons he began teaching me how to play simple songs like Twinkle-Twinkle, Happy Birthday and Mary Had a Little Lamb. Further on, Damien allowed me to choose a couple of my favorite songs, which he then taught me how to play. I definitely recommend any beginners to attend his lessons because you will not regret it.
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!
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.
I called John Brown with a unique request: to learn and sing a Jackson Browne song that had been rewritten lyrically for a memorial service that was 5 days away. John jumped on the project and sang and produced a beautiful version of the song that featured piano, base and acoustic guitars along with John's soulful vocals. It was an incredibly moving piece that was a gift not only to the family but all who attended. Better yet, he met our difficult deadline with two days to spare. A bravo performance!
Very professional band and awesome musicians. We had a blast!
From the first time I talked to Neil Stipp I know he would be the perfect person to play at my wedding on November 22nd, 2014. Before my wedding happened, I had never even attended a wedding, so I wasnt sure what music to play or how anything really went in a wedding ceremony. The first time I talked to him he explained everything perfectly, and he hummed different songs so I had an Idea of the type of music he played and the songs he suggested.(since I had no clue about any of it! Haha) He always stayed in contact with me and made sure everything was going well. He came and set up a week early to figure out where he would be set up and did trials of different songs and them in different tunes. Then on the day of the wedding he played and all my guests loved him. We got married outdoors, and he brought his own keyboard and amp.. my guests said it set the perfect mood for a wedding when he was playing. I couldnt have asked for anybody better to play the music for my wedding. Thank you Neil!
Ainur is one of the best violinists I had ever worked with! She is a top professional musician and is also very diplomatic and caring.
As a complete beginner at the flute, Dennis made me feel the task of approaching it was easy. Within a month or so I was happily making modest music on an instrument I had no idea how to play. I am still learning the upper register of the instrument and it is going much faster than I had expected. The cost of the lessons is very reasonable for the time spent with a professional working session and performance musician. He is very dedicated and reliable. My schedule is touch and go and he is always able to be flexible. Of almost equal importance is the ease of finding parking when I come for lessons. It is easy to get there as well. Enjoy the flute with Dennis. He is also a woodwind multi instrumentalist and a good guy in general. -Aaron Finley

I was blown away with how talented and successful Margie as an artist and motivational speaker. Learning about her back ground in the music industry and how her pathway to get where she is today was quite intriguing and highly motivating. She has performed and worked with top people known in the industry and has been paid to perform and speak all over the world. She really has the it factor you see on TV. She is very personable, likeable and beautiful. These elements shine through in her music and speaking. I love everything about her as a musician and the kind person she is on and off stage. I loved how she said "success isn't followed after fame, fortune or status but is obtained through a thought of daily gratitude for the opportunities and blessings you have been given" I loved this quote and wrote it down to remember. Thank you again Margie for your inspiring words and music.
Great musician! Can do many genres of music! Hire this guy and you won't be disappointed 😎
