Heather is not only an incredible musician, she is a very talented teacher. Voice class consisted of a warm up and various exercises that are relevant to the time/season/body. Heather is very knowledgeable, and she approaches each student and each lesson with remarkable patience and openness. It feels like a sharing and exchange of song, nothing feels wrong, there are no mistakes. She is an inspiring and encouraging presence and she will lead you into a discovery of your own voice.

Since she was voted the Best Local Band for the second straight year by readers of the Folsom Telegraph Newspaper and Folsom Lake Entertainer magazine we booked Cynthia Renee and Co. to perform at our annual Best of The Best Awards party. They were excellent! We had more that 300 people attend this event and she performed a wid variety of genres that had EVERYONE complimenting her and having a wonderful evening. We recommend her for any type of venue or event, she also advertised her appearance on her social media and websites and posters and brought many fans of her own so if your looking to get customers, book this talented local band, venue big or small they will please all!

We had a private birthday party of 50+ guests that the band played at. The band was absolutely fantastic. The songs were great with a great mixture between all of the 60s-80s rock and soul genres. We live at a RV & marina resort in the Delta. The local bars/restaurants have live bands playing 3 nights a week between May through October. Our guests were very impressed with this band and said they were the best band this year here at the Delta. There was so much dancing going on that night that our feet were sore two days later. Two local bars will booking them for next year performances. If you want a great time with great music, you must have Snapcats be at your gig.

Hot Rod Jukebox performed at the Atlas Cafe on Saturday January 9. They brought in about 30 people, which is excellent for this cafe. They performed two varied sets of 1960s oldies with a 6-piece group. Musicianship was excellent, and they engaged the crowd with a trivia contest, too. I definitely recommend Hot Rod Jukebox.

Brian and his band were a fantastic choice for our wedding! Brian was quick to communicate with me all the way along. The website is clear and contains snips of the songs so it was easy to make my set list. Although not everyone knows how to swing dance, anyone who wants to boogie can get down with the band. They adapted to the energy level of the crowd, they played hits that everyone would recognize, and they were totally professional! We had a reception of around 150 people and the dance floor was going the whole time! They also were very kind and let my brother in law use their equipment to sing us a song he wrote. What a blast! I would recommend this band to anyone who wants a smooth, fun loving, and professional experience. Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts! -Maia and Jed

About

Some great musician friends are playing some great music. We consist of a four-piece horn section, keyboards, bass, guitar, drums. We're also available as a three- to five-piece group or up to a 16-piece big band with enough notification. All accomplished musicians who were brought together are largely and in fact due to our teacher, mentor, and friend Frank Sumares. Almost all of which were students of his and enjoy playing together in honor of his memory and legacy. The name The Giant Garage Spiders comes as a lighthearted gesture of the fun that the band has when playing together, although the musicians' pedigree would suggest a more ridged and accomplished discipline in music. The wonderful combination of talent and chemistry is one not to be missed!

I am a versatile vocalist of classic pop, featuring an Elvis Presley tribute. I'm certainly not just another Elvis impersonator! Yes, I can sound amazingly close to The King, but prefer to put my own personal touch to his songs, covering nearly all of the Elvis catalog. From crooner to rocker, country to broadway, jazz to folk, blues to gospel! I also play guitar. At this present time I'm looking to form a small band. A karaoke party is also available!
