I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.
Awesome blend of covers and original music. Highly recommended
I was recently married on June 17, 2017 in L.A. California! Upon planning for the wedding I was slightly worried about finding the proper music to accommodate my husband's family. They are from France and I wanted them to be able to recognize and connect to the ceremony through the music. On the other hand, my family is Jewish. After doing some research I stumbled across Barbara Ochoa and her band OrKestra International. She sings in several different languages, was so personal and accommodating over the phone I thought I have to listen to her sing and prayed that I would love it. Lucky for me and my fiance, we did just that. We fell in love with her voice and knew instantly we had to book them. She explained how she could do a French song at the ceremory, a trio of European favorites for dinner and an American party band with horns that included the Hora for the dancing portion. On the wedding day Barbara and her band were beyond prepared. She told me “I have all the music covered, don’t worry” at first I though it’s my wedding so I’m going to worry but everything went so smooth all night. Funny everyone was singing along when they did "Volare." So many of the guests that came up to us had the same thing to say: they danced and had a blast. I think she must have handed out about 20 of her cards that night. Thank you Barbara for such a genuine experience that none of us from that night will ever forget.
Ajaya provided the music Ajaya provided the music at my 60th birthday bash. The band was outstanding and were able to cover a wide range of music, including back-up for a belly dancer. They were clean, professional and delivered as promised.
Kiefer is an amazingly talented pianist. I hired him off of Thumbtack to play the piano at my wedding reception. I was nervous because I wanted someone who could play classical very well, but also indulge us with rock, contemporary, and soundtrack covers. Kiefer can do IT ALL and MORE! He not only did a great job playing everything on our list, but he also played back up accompaniment to my cousin who is a singer. She is in a band and was very impressed by his skill. I would highly recommend Kiefer to anyone who wants a pianist that can play it all, giving something to everyone through his gifts and talents. He is reliable, gracious and gifted. Thank you, Kiefer!
You guys are awesome and play songs appropriate for all ages!!! Your songs always manage to get the ladies on the dance floor too! :-) Can't wait to see you guys again at the Streets of Brentwood.
When he said one man band he wasn’t kidding! A few of my guests swore they thought there was a whole group of people playing when they first walked in. Amazed at the variety of styles he covered. Great good time Americana music.
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.
Isaac and the Haze is a fantastic dance band! They were really the perfect entertainment for last two parties of about 60 people each. We hired them because some of our co-workers had heard them play at the Crow's Nest in Santa Cruz. The guys arrived about an hour early to set up their sound equipment and were ready to play right on time. Isaac, the lead singer, plays a keytar and electric cello. He has a great voice, with a big range of emotion, and really engaged the audience in between songs. The lead and back-up vocals were great and consistently held up against the big beat of the band. Other band members played lead guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard. I was worried that their 5-member band would overpower the relatively small venue, but the sound levels were perfect, and they didn’t blast us to the back of the room. There were 20 or more people dancing all the time, including young kids and a grandma in her 90's. We really liked the numbers they performed, which were mostly covers of R&B music from the 2000's, like Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic, DNCE’s Cake By The Ocean, Maroon 5’s Moves Like Jaggar, and works by Justin Timberlake. You could tell the band members were all having a good time too and enjoyed what they were doing. Great music! Great entertainment!
