Ruben was very professional, on time, and skilled at working with wedding parties and navigating the excitement of a busy party. When some equipment failed, Ruben kept shooting footage like a champ, which was important, and treated me and my bride very well. I am looking forward to seeing the final product!!
DJ Eclectic knew exactly the type of music we were going for when I described the theme. Since we had acrobats and other performers plus a very mixed-age crowd, I thought it was going ot be hard to find the right mix of music. I left it all up to Jamaal and he did a great job. Having the videos playing was definitely a bonus; it helped fill the large party space. Thanks, DJ Eclectic adn The E-Team!
All around great guy. Very knowledgeable and works fast while explaining his process. Sets expectations and works with your sound and vision to get the best out of the experience. Will be going back to him for all my mixing and mastering needs.
This is Malki Means King (www.malkimeansking.com / www.btownmusicgroup.com) I found out about Shine On Studios when a friend of mine got a song I recorded mixed / mastered by David Hughes. I was so impressed by the quality of the mix I asked who did the work and he referred me. I ended up getting my first single (The Malki Song) Mastered @ Shine On Studios and have been working with him since. Dealing with David has been great he is very honest. One of the best engineers I have gotten the chance to work with so far and I regularly recommend friends / my own clients to have him work on their projects.
So Young is the Shizz. I actually found Young through my brother. My brother got married at SF City hall in March of 2016. He rented out the entire rotunda. For those who don't know, that space is incredibly tricky to work with, not just as a result of the architecture and the strict limitations of this historic building, but for acoustic reasons as well! Young was so fun, and such an ease to work with, that I KNEW I needed him for my wedding. So fast forward 8 months, and I have to say, my experience with Young and his assistant was even better than I could have ever imagined. He worked with my half indoor/outdoor wedding with such ease! He's incredibly professional and organized He know's his stuff He asks you every question you'd need to have asked to make the event go smoothly He actually MIXES good music. He is a fantastic emcee. Not cheesy and a complete natural. And above all else, is a cool and fun guy who could probably do this in his sleep. He was worth every penny and then some. I had a budget for a DJ, but I can say without a doubt now, DONT SKIMP on the music. It really makes the whole night. I wish i had more siblings so we could keep hiring him!
I cannot say enough about Glen. I have been performing Americana and Rock dance music in local Bay Area venues for two decades and worked with plenty of SEs. Glenn is a skillful FOH and monitor engineer. He is professional, ontime and appropriate with house and clients. His communication is excellent.
Hairbears & Minitrucks. That's the era of Mobile DJ'ing... I was born & raised in Hawai'i but I moved to San Jose, CA in 1987... Primetime for the SF Bay Area to put what is now known as "Turntabilism" on the map. The Mid 80's thru the Mid 90's were easily the glory days of mixing and scratching and playing the jams for all the party people. 3-Style Attractions were one of the pioneers of the whole DJ movement, culture and Hip Hop as we know it. Call me biased but Dave "Dynamix" is a good friend of mine, so my review may be partial to him and his crew... But I guarantee that if you ever hear them spin, you'll agree with me 100% that they're one of the best DJ crews around... Like I said, they've been in the game since ever since... and they keep going...and expanding. When I first started hanging out with them, they had branches in San Jose, San Francisco & San Diego. They now have a few DJ's in Hawai'i as well. What guarantees their success is their professionalism, innovative sound & lighting and of course their mixing skills as well as their vast knowledge of todays hits and yesterday's jams. I've seen them do Weddings, School Dances, Frat/Sorority parties, Private parties, Showcases, Talent shows, Fashion shows, etc... You name the gig, they've done it. The mobile DJ game has evolved since the mid 80's and so have they. So, to sum it up: If you ask me, I'm gonna recommend 3 Style Attractions for your next party, dance, wedding, whatever... I know them personally as well as professionally. They're one of the best crews around. If you decide to sleep on them and hear about them rockin' the club or someone's party later...don't say I didn't tell you so... "Just some G's throwin' up some m*thaf*ckin' 3's in the air"
Avni's talent, passion and knowledge for photography are truly outstanding. In a time where people can take pictures constantly, she blends modern technology with old-school thoughtfulness to make more than just a snapshot...rather a keepsake to last a lifetime. The photoshoot itself was very fun and she was a professional at guiding me (laughing, at times) into the right poses. Turnaround time was very fast and the end result was amazing. She of course photographed me beautifully, but I still looked like myself which was important. I highly recommend Avni.
I contacted Tim at Kingdom Voice Productions to make a demo for a publisher in Los Angeles. My experience here has been outstanding, creating a fabulous demo that could easily be taken to the next level as a finished product. Tim is well-versed in songwriting, producing, engineering as well as being a screaming guitarist. His knowledge and attention to detail were instrumental in the completion of my demo. I also worked with his mixing engineer, DB, who was just simply amazing - a sound genius. Thanks to all at KVP!
Will was fantastic! His extensive background of music knowledge is so useful in bringing out the best from an artist. He creates a welcoming calm environment in the studio and gets the artist perspective even down to the adjustable lighting to help ease your nerves and get you started right. The sound quality of the final product was remarkable even before mixing and mastering! I highly recommend this skilled professional and I for one will most certainly be returning. Thanks for everything Will!
Excellent sound coming out of this studio with topnotch engineers working the boards. They understand the art and craft of recording and mixing great songs, which is lost in today recordings. If you want quality and experienced people hit the Grill.
We had a great time working with The Goodfolk Film Co. Their work is of high quality and full of creativity. The staff is very friendly, efficient and capable. We are very satisfied with the photo and video we got. We definitely will recommend their service to anyone.
Ben engineered and produced my full length album in 2014 and did an amazing job. He is professional, experienced and an amazing bass player. He went above and beyond to bring this project to life and I highly recommend working with him on your producing, engineering or mixing project. ~ brindl (www.brindl.com)
DATASTREAMSTUDIO has been the best experience for me in my recording career. Bruce (one of the dj's) is very talented and dedicated to his craft. He takes each individual project and gets into it as if he is reliving what you're talking about in your lyrics. I completed a project with him called "The Truth!" Bruce at (DATASTREAMSTUDIO) is responsible for the mixing, mastering, and beatson every song on. For example, "The Truth" is one song that can be found on soundcloud.com under the name Karkeynis. Bruce is great to work with.
Over the time I've worked with him, Steve's ability to bring the right music and sounds to any mix is really amazing.
Dj Jermaine was amazing!! He showed up with a dope set up, on time! He had his own booth, that was sleek and white, with various colored lights that changed to the music. His preset selection was fantastic, but his professionalism and custom playlists are even better! I asked if I could send him a list of songs to work into his mix and he was enthusiastic about doing so. He worked all of my songs in and even kept the music clean for the first two hours of the party for my older family members. Dj Jermaine acted as a DJ and host/VJ and did a great job! He was dressed professionally, worked professionally, and was overall the best dj I could ever ask for! (And I am very picky and specific about my music!) If you’re looking for a DJ for your event, DJ Jermaine is the one for you!
DJ Danny J is the best there is!! I was blown away at how he got the dance floor going! He is enthusiastic and professional and really knows how to please all different crowds. He is skilled in mixing/transitioning songs together smoothly and you can tell that he has been doing this for a long time. I would highly recommend him for any event!
Gunjan DJ'ed our wedding and he was great! He was very fun to work with and was able to handle our requests for music and had great mixes of his own to set the perfect mood for our wedding and reception. He had a wide range of music to appease our families as well, from classic Gujarati music to popular Kannada songs, he had it all! Gunjan catered to all of our (including our parents) musical needs. Of course he was on time and ready to go and rocked the after party but he went way above and beyond by mixing us an unforgettable intro song. He had all the equipment necessary for a DJ, including, speakers, mics, awesome lights, and projectors (and so much more). Our intro mix was pretty awesome and we still hear it even today. He knew exactly what to mix for our dance party and really captured our taste in music, this guy can read a crowd! Kept us moving constantly! :)
Joseph is intuitive, innovative, professional and highly creative. I have worked with him over the past 6 years as a director, post production engineer, motion graphics and graphics designer and editor. Joseph handles all of these with deftness and skill, and he is a fount of ideas. All the projects I have hired him for have benefited greatly from his participation. His wide range of capabilities does not diminish his capacity for any singular area of expertise. I would hire him and recommend him confidently for any of the skills listed above.
Francisco has a great work ethic, mixed with a creative eye for an awesome result. He assisted our client shoot in SF and also edited the piece, he extracted the key points and added his unique vision and eye on it. Love his work and excited to partner up again!
New To Thumbtack
I always try to go above and beyond what the typical production crew member may offer. For example I often work for international crews. Instead of having them deal with the stress of driving in a new area as well as meeting their often highly demanding schedule, I offer to rent a car for them and act as a designated driver.
