Fantastic music, easy to coordinate with, and arrived early to make sure the event started on time. Our employees had AMAZING feedback, so we will absolutely hire Clifford in the future.
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.
I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.
A skilled and multi-talented musician, composer, and arranger, Jeffery has collaborated with me on a number of projects including notating some of my own pieces. I was extremely happy with the quality of his work. Additionally, he was the band leader and composer-in-residence for San Franciscos beloved Pickle Family Circus and consistently wrote music of great charm and invention. Highly recommended.
We hired Groovy Judy and her band to perform at a biker event. She was extremely professional and the band was great! They played well and their song selection was perfect. I highly recommend her.
Larry's a great guy and great drum instructor. We always have a blast during my lesson and he's taught me quite a bit over the last year or so that I've been taking lessons from him. He plays in many local bands and different types of music so it doesn't really matter what you want to learn on the drums, Larry will be able to teach you.
As wedding and event planners, it is crucial to find bands that set the perfect tone for the event. Los Boleros was fabulous. For this wedding, they created an atmosphere that got the guests up from their chairs, dancing all night long. The entire process; from booking through perfmance was professional and exactly what we hoped for. I would strongly recommend working with Rudy and this band. It was a great experience all around....not to mention that the band is just AMAZING!
For anyone looking to hire a band, look no further than Retro Jukebox! We recently had Retro Jukebox play at our wedding, and many guests told us that the band was the highlight of their experience-- the minute they opened the dance floor with a James Brown number, everyone rushed to get moving and shaking! As clients, we were incredibly impressed with Retro's ability to cater the event experience to a cross-cultural audience of various backgrounds and ages. A significant percentage of our audience was Indian, and they were able to put together a program which appealed to all. We appreciated their flexibility in allowing a short 'Indian music' segment, even doing some improv and dancing along with it! Hopefully, this also inspired a few ideas for future gigs as well. :-) Additionally, my husband and I both sing, and wanted to perform a song with the band at our wedding. To accommodate our request, Retro held multiple rehearsals with us both prior to the event and day of the event. Geechi, the band's lead singer, even cut short a gig to practice the entire entrance and production before the guests arrived, which was instrumental in pulling off a seamless performance. Our guests were simply wowed by the introduction that greeted them when they walked in-- it felt like a professional show. Geechi not only delivered as an excellent vocalist, but also as an entertaining and charismatic emcee. His rendition of Billy Ocean's 'Suddenly' stood out as the finest instance of musicality in the entire evening-- my father went up to the stage and asked him to perform an encore of the entire song. Talent, professionalism, and an infectious positivity-- that is Retro Jukebox! Thank you for making our wedding so special.
Love the versatility of the band and how you can play various genres of music. We also really enjoyed the dance routines that band performs with the songs - this is truly unique to FSE and all our guests loved it!
I took lessons with Angel for a year in 2010 in Los Angeles, He was recommended to me by a friend. I hired him to get ready for an audition for a band I wanted to be a part of, I didn’t get in but I actually ended up putting my own band together and we still going at it today. Angel advice and dedication to me as a voice student is something I will never forget and always be thankful for. You need to come back to LA, or maybe I should move to SF. ;)
Martan has been doing a wonderful job teaching my teenage son jazz piano for the past few years. Martan has a proven approach starting at the basics and advancing to very sophisticated techniques at a pace the student can handle. The techniques my son is learning are also directly applicable to playing jazz on other instruments such as the saxophone that my son also plays in his school band.
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.
The GTS Band has been my favorite for years, so I was thrilled when I was asked to contract with them for a high school reunion. Rick was great and easy to work with. We placed the band centrally in the room to give the lead singer an opportunity to work the room as he performed--which he does so well. As always, the music was fantastic!
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!
Professional, talented musicians. A pleasure to deal with. They get it.
I'm a rock/jazz drummer with experience working out songs, building bands, and organizing live sets. I usually work with a guitarist and bassist, and I'm used to improvising new drum parts to go along with their riffs and solos. I'm less about crazy chops and drum solos, and more about just delivering a great, steady beat. I also manage a small practice space, Abbot Studio. Our recording equipment isn't great, but it's enough for a proof of concept, and I have a good relationship with a more professional recording studio, ShatteredRecords. I'm located in Dale City, CA.

You won't be disappointed by this professional band which music ranges from sophisticated quiet jazz to rocking, swinging dance tunes depending on the event's requirements.
