Jason of J-Mann Music played solo guitar for our baby shower, and did a beautiful job! All of our guests commented on what a 'nice touch' Jason's music provided for the event; his large selection of music did a great job of pleasing our multigenerational crowd of family and friends. Jason is extremely polished yet friendly and approachable in his work, and I would definitely hire him again in the future. Thank you again, Jason, for making our afternoon even more special!

Amy is a seasoned professional! This past February she played her violin at my wedding and did an incredible job! In the months leading up to the big day she discussed song options with me and helped to figured out just what I wanted. She was also proactive in communicating with the other musicians (a singer and an organist) who I had hired through the church. The music was perfect! Amy plays her instrument beautifully, is prompt and professional, and a pleasure to work with.

Gary Rich is a wonderful guitarist, pianist and DJ ... I didn’t have a lot of experience hiring a musician and DJ and Gary made it easy! From the first time we met I knew he was the right choice for our wedding. He was very helpful with our agenda and choosing our songs. When it came to our wedding day he played classical guitar for our ceremony and reggae guitar for the cocktail hour. He then switched hats and became our DJ/MC for the grand entrance and first dance. During the dinner hour, he played piano and all of our favorite jazz standards that we had requested. We were blown away by his versatility and professionalism. I would recommend him for all events. He helped make our day incredible and we are eternally grateful! Thank you so much Gary!!!

I needed a musician for a company event and had only one day to hire someone after a miscommunication with the original talent. A coworker told me about Thumbtack, thankfully! After thoroughly reviewing all of the quotes I received, I chose Cameron. I knew he'd be perfect for the group of people we were entertaining. Definitely made the right choice! People were engaged, dancing, truly enjoying themselves. I will be hiring Cameron for future company events and my own personal gatherings as well. If you're looking for a professional musician, I highly recommend Cameron. Cameron is on time, prepared, ready to make great music, he will have you and your guests dancing nonstop. Thanks for taking the job last minute. You put on a great show and I'd even go as far as saying I'm glad the original talent dropped out. It was great doing business with you. You were born to entertain!

I own a music company that Hector sub-contracts for, he is one of our most valued and well loved instructors. Hector's passion for music is infectious and it certainly propels his students in their learning. A huge plus is that Hector is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with a lot of experience performing, writing music and teaching ALL ages. Needless to say we love Hector both as a person and an instructor and would highly recommend him!

Joey's an excellent teacher-he helped me get excellent scores on my solo piece when I performed it. Definitely would consider for work on a solo piece for saxophone.

As a professional musician (guitar and vocals) that does not read music, I have had a few lessons with this guy to help with my reading of music, theory, and soloing. He presents everything to me in a very understandable manner and exudes the utmost patience in getting me to the next level. I have never had music lessons before so this seemed daunting at first but now I have broken through long standing plateaus and I am reinvigorated to push myself to the next level. I will definitely be continuing this approach with Mr violin in the future.

Dave Good is a great teacher and accomplished musician. He's straight forward and easy to understand and get along with. He also pushes but not too hard. Nothing a parent wouldn't do. I would recommend giving him a try. My daughter attends a performing arts high school and prefers Dave to other teachers she's ha, he's solid.

BPEACE is the most soulful musician in Southern California. I was blown away at how smooth and kool this guy sounds. I’m definitely hiring him for another event. Do yourself a favor and get BPEACE before he goes global. This is the sound and vibe that gets you noticed, and it’s BPEACE’s time.

Holy $h*t, they were absolutely amazing! I'm the groom and I usually don't use expletives or write reviews (wife's orders), but the Republic of Music deserves both. I've never been to a wedding with a live band, so when they came to ours (also my wife's vision) I was so blown away. They add this completely warm energy and unique experience to the surrounding that allowed everyone to relax, loosen up, and just party! They played anything you wanted, they covered mainly top 40 by our request, but they sounded better then the original artists. We didn't have a lot of time to enjoy the band as we were taking pics and making rounds, but I saw everyone having a good time...I even saw my mom dancing, she is an Asian Tiger Mom, and even she was dancing!! They came with a full band, 3 vocalist, AND a DJ; they also brought lighting. So for the price - it was definitely worth it as hiring a DJ on it's own was almost that price. We are also a muslim couple and they were more than accommodating to any request that we had in terms of attire and music selection. If you want your wedding to have the extra special touch that increases the experiences to both you and your guests, get this band, they will make an impression that will last forever.

    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!

    As President of a Chula Vista Senior Center it was my responsibility to hire musicians for our monthly dances: Well! You couldn't do better whether for dancing or just listening. Affordable! Always on time, always entertaining, always on theme, and always a versatile "crowd pleaser"

    My granddaughter began studying recorder and flute with Dr. Payne about one year ago, and already at age 8 she has performed in two recitals on flute and enjoys serenading her family and friends. Dr. Payne uses firm but supportive teaching techniques and gets great results. Our family is deeply grateful for her influence on our budding musician.

    I was looking for a cellist to accompany me (I'm a singer/acoustic guitarist) at my sister's wedding in Massachusetts. Daniel came highly recommended by a local music store owner, as he was living and playing music in Western Massachusetts at the time. I was nervous, as I'd never heard Daniel play before, and because I was in town from California just a few days before the wedding, we were only able rehearse once. To my delight and extreme relief, Daniel was easy to work with, a consummate professional and an excellent musician. He was also quite versatile - we performed two contemporary tunes together (an Alanis Morissette song + a Bonnie Raitt song), and he played several instrumental, classical pieces before the ceremony. He was fluent in both genres, and the music was absolutely beautiful! I'm so glad Daniel has relocated to SoCal, as I'm looking forward to working with him again. I highly recommend Daniel for your next event!

    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!

    Chris is an incredible musician and human being with whom I have the privilege to work with regularly. His knowledge in music is as deep as it is broad, and his skill on both the saxophone and keys is impressive. We've performed on several tours together, and we collaborate in the studio fairly often as well - another area where he has great expertise. I highly recommend Chris for your musical needs!!

      Les is a great musician and wonderful entertainer, a true professional. I've heard nothing but good comments about him from fellow musicians as well as the audience. In fact, I have seen him go out of his way out of his way to please his audience. He always seems to be working on something new in a very organized and disciplined way.
