Everything! He understands the business side of music and he was the only vendor I did not lose sleep over as I planned my husband's 70th birthday party. The J Mann band is professional and offered us a wide variety of the songs we loved and asked for. Justin's voice, their harmony, and rhythm were fun to dance to and they brought each song to life, complimenting the original artists beautifully. We had a wonderful time and would recommend them to anyone, anytime. Makes me want to have another party just so we can invite them back and listen!

I have worked with Bill at countless live dates and recording gigs, especially as part of the Erick Macek band. Bill is a professional and serious musician who gives his all every moment of every gig. He knows when to hold back and when to unleash, tailoring his performance to the nature of the audience and the venue. As a sideman he is invaluable, and if I am ever in need of solo guitar performance I know who I am going to call.

Sarah's band performed for our wedding and we loved her so much! For the ceremony she played solo piano and sang our favorite song "All of Me" by John Legend. For the cocktail and dinner hour she performed beautiful background music with her trio and then when it was time for some serious dancing she pulled out all the stops with a full band! We danced the night away to the most fun dance music! She was very supportive and professional helping us to choose music and make sure the music was perfect for the whole event! We would definately hire her again!

What a fantastic team! Lion Bold brings a unique sense of creativity and originality in all projects they create. A few years ago, Lion Bold put together a remarkable video highlighting one of my Marching Band tournaments, not only was it artistically superior in film composition, it became a beloved video for alumni of the program to view and remember a great day. Ryan and Kevin were amazing to work with and tailored their work to capture the special memories we cherished without getting in the way of the moment. Would highly recommend. Great experience, great people, and great art! Thanks guys! -Zak McGaugh, Drum Major of Scripps Ranch High School Marching Band '15/'16

Ron and his musicians were outstanding!! I hired them for a '40s Big Band Pary for 2 hours and did the deliver! They were very much accommodating to our residents and the staff. Very upbeat group of men who sang and danced with our residents, which made all the ladies very happy!The music was spot on and made us all feel like we really were in the 1940s. Very happy with the performance and their attitudes, absolutely one of the best!

Groove Factory was a great band at our corporate holiday party! From the initial coordination to the day of the event, they were a pleasure to work with. Our guests enjoyed the entire evening - the music, the interaction, live karaoke, the dancing. I highly recommend them.

Josh and I married September 6th at the Scripps Forum in La Jolla and Republic of Music (ROM) made our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!!!! Since I had been planning our wedding from Washington, I didn't get to see the band live prior to our wedding. My dad and siblings went to see ROM play at Club M in Del Mar and they were blown away!! I was already impressed by the reviews and YouTube videos I had seen and read. I knew they were going to be the perfect match for our wedding day and I was totally right!! ROM is professional, fun, amazing and freakishly good at their craft! Vocals were ON POINT and the musicians brought the funk!! We opted to splurge on horns two weeks before the wedding and it was a great decision!! Our guests LOVED the band and their personalities and stage presence set the mood for the night. I cannot say enough about Tiana and how amazing she is to work with. She eased my way from the moment I spoke with her. (I had already booked another band but changed my mind once I was told about ROM) She provided me with piece of mind and made our day run so smoothly. The band did an excellent job keeping our day on schedule and emceed the entire event perfectly. It was really comforting to know that our families could enjoy the evening and not have to worry about making announcements or keeping the night on schedule. Dinner music was amazing, slower songs really allowed you hear just how amazingly talented the vocalists are. As the evening progressed Josh and I did not stop dancing all night along with our guests! My sisters and I also got to be band mates for the day and sing with the band which was pretty epic!! My dad is a man of few words, but he couldn't stop talking about the band for days!! He already said he wants to book ROM for their 40th wedding anniversary!! If you're looking for a band for your big event, stop looking!!! You have found who you are looking for!! ROM will not disappoint! I wish I could crash all the weddings they performed at so I can sing and dance the night away. That's how awesome they are! Thank you ROM for everything!!! Your forever fans, Mr. & Mrs. Calkins!

We got married July 2013 outside in La Jolla overlooking the ocean. Marcela and her band did an incredible job playing music for the reception and the insane dance party that ensued after dinner. I could not have been happier with the combination of beautiful melodies during the reception and dance hits during the party. We had a crowd of all ages there and every single person was dancing for hours, even my 84 year old Grandfather! They played an essential role in making our wedding a night to remember and for that I am forever grateful. Timely, professional, honest, giving, flexible, accommodating, excellent.

Jesse and the band did a fantastic job for our birthday party. Played the music that we requested and were very professional. Came on time, started on time and sounded great. I would certainly hire them again for another event.

My son Max has been taking lessons with Ed for several years now and we couldn't be happier. Ed is an awesome music teacher with many talents. His knowledge of playing in a band has been a great help for my son. Ed will jump in and play the bass line with Max if needed. I love that he can teach vocals, guitar, bass, and drums and get in there and jam with my son, too. Ed's awesome! I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a music teacher. Terry
