Marcela's band Honey Rock played at our wedding 3 years ago, and we still talk about what a great evening of dancing we enjoyed! They played everything from The Stones to Michael Jackson to Adele, so there was something for everyone. Marcela even took some time to learn our special song by Van Morrison so we could have our "bride and groom first dance". We still seek out Marcela and her band on occasion and go for a night out of listening and enjoying. They're fabulous! Tim and Susi Haugh

Getting an amazing band was priority numero uno for our wedding and after reading tons of reviews, I was already pretty sold on them. Once we sat down with Tiana, we were practically begging to sign a contract. We got the nine piece band for our wedding and on an epic day full of highlights, I think they take top honors. Our party simply would not have been as great without them. We weren’t really interested in doing the “traditional” wedding things – grand entrance, first dance, cake cutting, etc. and Tiana worked with us to make sure the evening was everything we envisioned, including letting the crowd dictate the flow and timeline. I think it takes an extremely professional crew who truly know their stuff to be able to take on that endeavor. They sang, they grooved, they rapped, they learned songs just for us, and they incorporated a last minute request that I made the day before the wedding. You know you have a good thing going when the oldest and youngest guests at the party are in agreement that they are “the best band ever!” But beyond the music, they are down to earth, gracious, and just seem like a fun bunch to be around – I kind of want to become a roadie now. I also know two people in the hotel business who have seen tons of weddings and they, too, think ROM is the best in the biz. If I were a bajillionaire, I would hire them to play at my house every Friday night just so I could dance by myself. Hurry up and snatch them up before they’re booked – you absolutely will not regret it.

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!

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

We were so glad we chose this band for our wedding. They were spectacular from the solo guitar entrance music, hosting the event, to closing the dance-floor down late night. I don't know how they kept the energy up for the whole night but they played till the very end. They definitely made our big party complete! PS -- I don't like Journey but the band was so good even I sang along!

I would like to tell anyone looking for a professional and talented person, duo, or group of musicians to enhance or lead an event to look no further Bill Harris can most certainly fill the bill for you. Bill & Stephanie individually or as a duo have been and continue to entertain my clients and guests for a couple of years now. They are currently performing weekly here for me at the Old town Tequila Factory. They do a fantastic job jamming on the Steel Drums on our outside patio or moving inside to the enclosed patio for a lighter marimba and oboe sound. Bill has also taken care of our needs for our special events and on location catering functions. Bill and Stephanie have performed in period costume for us at Christmastime performing music and singing carols looking like they just stepped out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Bill has also brought in additional drummers, guitarists, and a bassist to make the band for our event at the Sheriffs Museum. They are great performers and truly great people. I always look forward to the next appearance.

Hired Chicken Wire for a friends birthday party and they were a major hit! We had a blast dancing to old time rock songs. The band was engaging and entertaining! Our friends had a great time but most especially the guest of honor, our friend, whose birthday we were celebrating, said it was one of the best nights of his life. He got to sing with Chicken Wire! Highly recommend them for your event!

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.

    Look no further you have found your DJ! What a fantastic time!!! We booked two live acts for the wedding and a DJ from Kipling Music. Some guests danced to the bands, but the real entertainment didn't start until the DJ started spinning the tunes. Everyone was dancing and singing along to the great musical selection that he played. This was a totally professional show, and at a great price to boot!! I would recommend Kipling Music for any event! -
