Mike Badinger was everything we had hoped for in an entertainer! He arrived early to set up to perform dinner music at our restaurant. His guitar, vocals and song choice/knowledge was spot on. He played for three hours plus, with minimal downtime, when only contracted for three. Mike is just a great, laid back guy as well! He worked the crowd well and was very professional throughout all of our interactions. He is now our go to music man for all our future music needs.

Mike entertained our summer party for 2.5 hours with his music and vocals. He was on time, and was quite flexible in taking requests. He has a broad range of music in his repertoire and in the end, several guests and the author attempted to join him in song, failing miserably :-). I would definitely recommend Mike for your next party.

UpRock has excellent musicians and awesome music teachers! Everyone I've met there is thoughtful, caring, knowledgeable and patient. Both of my kids love lessons at UpRock and have been eagerly attending for almost a decade. They love going, not just to learn music, but for the fun, encouraging yet professional atmosphere. That's wonderful because they've both benefited in many ways, some we've only realized now that they're older and face bigger and more complicated challenges.

2 lessons in and my 5 year old can named the parts of the guitar, play cords, practices his hand positions, and can play a couple of songs without looking at the sheet music. He loves practicing at home and showing the family his songs. He looks forward every week to his lesson too.

Awesome band! They were terrific and everyone loved the music. Very talented musicians with a wide variety of music performed on a wide variety of instruments for a very reasonable price. They played for about four hours at our wedding and everyone loved it because it kept the energy flowing! They worked very well with us to come up with the best selection of specific pieces to be performed for our audience based on the general age group and cultures present. There was something for everyone and the band was quite flexible to accommodate both the Slavic and the American cultured groups there. We of course loved it! This is a well organized, diverse group of musicians, with excellent service that can make any occasion/event a vivid one. When asked, "what did you remember the most?" Most people said, "the brides dress, the music, & the desserts!" Thanks for making our wedding a memorable one!

Impressive, entertaining and down right outstanding. Every band member performed at a higher level than I thought they would. They looked like they were having a great time which made my experience that much more enjoyable. The band is incredible and were given time to show their talent. Truly unforgettable! I definitely would see them again.

Crystal Image - that says it all. I have experienced the Band multiple times. They are great musicians but not that alone. They can feel what the guests like. They are masters on their instruments and also have great voices. You can feel with John that his mentor was Willie Nelson. It is no problem for them to get the people dancing and staying entertained a full evening. We enjoyed them at our Stammtisch El Dorado, at the Muenster Ranch in Ione twice, at my husband's birthday party and it is crazy to say - but I cannot wait for my next big birthday to get them again. But we are a large group - so the chances are big. We wish them the best. Moelli de Boer, Camino CA

I am the band chairperson of Stockton Singles Inc.I hire the Crystal Image band every 3rd Friday of each month and we enjoy their music. Our club has the most people present than any other Fridays of the month. Many times we have 100 or more quests and dancers or just plain listening to their music.

Tim performed solo in our backyard for my husband's 30th birthday party. He was professional, reliable and on time! He was only supposed to play for 2 hours because of my budget, but he ended up staying for 3 hours. Tim is a talented artist and can play tunes from the Eagles to Sublime to Darius Rucker. He took requests from the party attendees all night and even made my husband cry! Ok, well he was a little bit intoxicated but Tim was able to play his favorite new song. Just as my husband passed out early from too much fun (Read: too many drinks) he kept saying how awesome the music was. Too bad he missed the last hour of Tim's performance! Thank you, Tim!!

We hired Tim to play at a surprise bday party/family reunion for my Dad. My concern was there were going to be a lot of older folks there and I wanted people to be able to visit and hear each other. I expressed my wishes to Tim and he really did a wonderful job providing a nice background sound without overpowering the room. He also brought along a sax player which was a great duo. My Dad LOVED it! Tim is laid back and easy to work with. Thank you so much.

Amy is awesome last time I played a instrument was in middle school and that was a clarinet so in terms of learning a string instrument like a violin I was nervous but Amy was always supportive, patient, and creative in her way to teaching me. I can say her neat tricks to strengthen my fingers were convenient for me as Im a student and have pencils and pens near me. I also received a lot of help and advice from her from re-learning to read music to how to work a tuner and of course how to operate my violin. I loved having Amy's help and would love to recommend other people to get her as a instructor. It was nice working with her and I'll miss her tons as I head on my solo journey to discover the violin. 😄😄😁

I completely recommend Amy as an violin teacher. She is an excellent teacher, is very patient, explains things very well and finds the way around to makes sure the student understands. Especially in my case that I am an adult that haven't had any music instruction since elementary school. She always provides helping tools such as websites and great exercises. You can definitely tell that she really loves teaching violin lessons!

Joe and J Silverheels were an awesome cover band! They tailored my wish list as requested and all four musicians had amazing talent. The energy was perfect as they engaged the audience throughout the performance. It was an intimate urban outdoor setting, they were able to adjust the sound level accordingly and brought some cool lighting to spice things up just that much more. The dance floor opened up quickly and it was a great synergy. I would not hesitate to recommend this band; especially if you want to mix in some quality jazz with a wide selection of rock and roll. Last but not least, they play a mean harmonica plus tenor and alto saxophones to boot!!

DalRae is an amazing teacher. She really thinks about how to teach and tailors her instruction to your level. She comes up with exercises that are not only fun and instructive, but also designed to help you understand musical concepts and progress in your playing. The fact that she is not only a classical musician, but also plays in a tango quartet is an added bonus, as it gives her an perspective that other strictly classical musician won't have (as I learned in our conversations). I have had several music teachers over the years, but DalRae is by far the best. Highest recommendations!

Ryan helped us celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. His song list is extensive and covers the last 50 years of music. We had seen him perform in town and have always been impressed. My wife is certain he would win American Idol or the Voice. He really nails every song. Very professional with top of the line equipment that truly makes a difference. He was not familiar with one of my wife's favorite artists I mentioned while booking, but took the time to nail the song as if it were his own. What really stood out was the range of music he covers. From hits to amazing Spanish guitar instrumentals that he and his guitar player Kaz absolutely nail. Thanks for making our event perfect Ryan. Highly recommend Ryan for anyone looking for live music.

Hired him for an small anniversary event. Ryan showed up promptly and with everthing needed to preform. He was very professional and carismatic while entertaining our intimate crowd. I was incredibly impressed with his songbook and abilty to take requests. Ryan takes great pride in all the equipment he uses and it's grossly apparent when you sit back to enjoy the show. Watching Ryan play and sing, his greatest passion - Never a disappointment, always an experience. I have become a big fan and would and will hire Ryan and band to perfom at a future event.

One of the most beautiful voices in Sacramento belongs to Beth Duncan. She's magical onstage and interprets songs thoughtfully and memorably.

This duo was very professional but also personable. They were timely and were excited to be a part of our party. They were flexible with the location and welcomed one of our guests to join in on their last set. It was a young girl who has not developed confidence yet with her talent, but sang beautifully. Ruby has a soft, pleasing sound herself and everyone really enjoyed themselves. I would absolutely hire her again.

Ruby Jaye and the band performed at my wedding. Ruby learned all of the songs I wanted for my ceremony, and the band played 5 hours straight for the reception, only taking 1 quick break! They had great energy and paid attention to what songs everyone wanted to hear.

There are many tributes to other artists, but few with the 2+ solid hours of chart-busting hits of Tom Petty. What makes GWO stand out from other Petty tributes are our easy-going professionalism and that we sound so close to the original.

About

I do background acoustic guitar (if I'm solo), nylon/classical/Celtic things. I've seen that a lot of parties don't necessarily need or want a center-of-attention performer, but something on the side people can listen to or not as they like, low-profile. I've gotten a lot of compliments for adding atmosphere like that. Unless people want to just play cd's, then they don't need something like that.
