We hosted a 40th birthday party at our house for a friend of ours and we had about 30 guests. Jason played for us and everybody had a great time. We have hosted many parties over the years but this was the first time we had a live musician and it made all the difference. Everybody had a great time and I would have no hesitation in recommending Jason. Just before the music ended my 18 year old daughter sked me to dance with her so that made the night for me. Brendan

A Dawn of Music studio is accommodating in all aspects of their business. From the first email I received from the Studio to the last phone call I had in regards to my lesson. The staff and instructors have been so helpful. It's a comfortable environment to learn in and I enjoyed my instructors teaching style. Everyone I spoke to at he studio is enthusiastic and excited for you to learn and experience music. This is really motivating for a beginner like myself who has never played an instrument.

Exceptional Violinist! Amazing Pianist! Amy is a patient dynamic instructor, with a vast background in all kinds of music! A true professional! She works well with adults and children. Amy strives for excellence in her music and achieves it every time! Amy loaned her awe-inspiring talent to my wife and I for our wedding and we were blown away by her emotion, talent and exceptional presentation! Amy is a cut above the rest! I would hire her again without hesitation!

Joey has been my son's piano teacher for the past 2 1/2 years. I Highly recommend him!! My son has made more progress with him than I ever dreamed possible. Joey listened to my desire to utilize a non-traditional teaching approach and he not only understood what I was looking for, he embraced it. Now, my son has a pretty extensive repertoire of very entertaining songs he can play at a moment's notice and it's a joy to listen to him practice and bring music into our home. He's learning stuff now that I thought he wouldn't be able to touch for years to come. Joey is the Man!!

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!

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

Krista is the REAL deal! Not only is she super talented in ALL areas of music, she is an amazing person with a huge heart. Her songs will literally touch the depths of your soul, her voice coaching is beyond words, and she'll stretch you to levels that you didn't know existed for you, her self expression and presence will connect with you at a deep level. Whether you desire a custom song, a singer songwriter to perform live, or vocal lessons, I can not recommend Krista enough, she will ROCK your world!

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!

We had a 1920 theme party and this group brought down the house. It felt like we were in Bugsy's Night Club watching a show. Thank you for making our party be the most memorable party for my mom in her whole life- ps: she just turned 96! Your group can do classics to current music and everyone was singing along . Your the BEST! Will hire your group again. 5 stars class act!

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

I've seen the Left Coast Quintet play at house and holiday parties. What a great touch of class and panache. Live music is such a treat; it's extra special when it's a favorite song. I am getting married next year and plan on having the Left Coast Quintet play our ceremony music. It's such a simple and classic way to make our wedding day memorable.

I've seen Ottopilot perform at a number of venues and I've become a huge fan! They have a diverse repertoire of covers and originals from Jack Johnson to Metallica. Their acoustic rock style is perfect for corporate events, private parties, live-music venues and even weddings. They are professional with just the right amount of fun and cater to a clients needs. I would give them 6 stars if I could and I highly recommend them!

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.
