Clifford's band was professional and wicked good. Hire them, they will not let you down.
We hired Citizens Jazz for my Wife's surprise Birthday party at our house in Sausalito CA. Caroline was very professional and easy to work with. The band played some great music, Jazz and also some danceable music. The band played Happy Birthday for my Wife and also took requests. It was an amazing experience to have great quality music in our home and they were perfect for our party. I highly recommend Citizens Jazz!
My son and his classmate took saxophone lessons with Andrew to be ready for Fall Band in 5th grade. He is straight forward and they learned fast from him. I highly recommend him.
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.
I am a beginner and didn't know much about playing Guitar and Music theory. She is a great teacher, she always has a way to make me understand the critical aspects. Within no time Judy has brought me to a level where I could read music and play basic chords and make transitions. Playing guitar is a combination of the lessons you get from your guitar teacher and practicing a lot, judy has been really good in making me focus on the right aspects of guitar playing. So far everything has been great. Looking forward to more great lessons.
I wanted to learn how to improvise better after having played classical piano for 8 years. After a few lessons Im getting really comfortable! Jeffrey works at my pace, and provides examples from the greats of jazz music to inform how I ought to think about scales, intervals, and improvisation. Great teacher and I cant wait for more.
I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.
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.
Ralph is a remarkably intuitive and efficient one man studio to record with. Being a world class guitarist and teacher doesn't hurt. Also having played in excellent bands for so long gives him range. I recently did a recording with him that was a rush job of sorts with lots of fixes and he was amazing. He can actually tailor whatever recording project to the wants and needs of the artist. In short: He gets it. He works really hard, puts the project first and is more than fair to say the least in what he charges. I give him the highest of recommendations. You won't regret working with him. Ps. He is calm and friendly as well. He puts the client at ease knowing we're in safe hands.
The band did an amazing job. Our event was for 1000+ people in San Francisco. The band played from 10pm to 1am and the crowd could not have been more energized and excited. The band was extremely professional and flexible with venue and event requirements. Highly recommend them for future events!
I hired Orkestra International for my engagement party in Concord, Ca. My step-dad is Mexican American and we have a lot of parties and dancing. My fiancé (who's also Mexican American) and I decided to have our engagement party with salsa dancing along with other dance music for our friends and family that would be attending. We wanted someone affordable and knew a vast array of different genres in English and Spanish. With only a couple weeks to plan, I went searching online and found Orkestra International. I was surprised with their setup. A DJ band that didn't have instruments but back tracks. They also did Spanish songs as well as other dance music. I was a little skeptical, but called them up and spoke to their band leader, Barbara Ochoa. She was really informative. I explained to her that I was having a small(ish) party in my backyard for an engagement party on October 14th. I also explained what kind of set list we wanted as well. She was really understanding and said her band was available that day (thank goodness). We talked about the price and she was really reasonable. Her price was less than some DJs I had looked at before finding her. Anyways, fast forward to the 14th. Her band arrived early to set up. By band, I mean the trio. They had a back track dj board thing, mics and speakers. Again, I was a little skeptical, at least I was, until they started. THEY WERE GREAT! They knew A LOT of different Latin style songs that kept my family and friends dancing and happy on my step-dad's and fiancé's (mine too) side, and for us on my family's (and friends) side knew a bunch of classic American standards that got them moving too. I forgot that they didn't have a real band behind them. Thank you for making my engagement such a wonderful memory! I'll probably be hiring them again for my wedding reception.
Natalie has been fantastic to work with! Her instruction through exercises, general tips/suggestions, and specific ideas when working on a particular song has all been stellar and on point throughout my work with her. I feel like I have improved dramatically over the course of our lessons, and my band members have made several comments about my improvement as well. She has an uncanny knack for knowing what I am doing with my breath, diaphragm, throat, mouth, etc., and being able to suggest just the right adjustments to make things sound better and more comfortable to sing. Natalie is a wonderful person, too, very encouraging, supportive, and respectful. I highly, highly recommend her!!
In a short time had a beginner performing live with a band in front of co-workers at a party. Kevin used many helpful tips and tricks to help me learn the minor and major chords to play.
Mike's band is fantastic! From start to finish, I felt I was in good hands. Mike and his band did jazz music at the brunch reception for my wedding. All the musicians are highly experienced and professional. Their music was a true highlight, setting an upbeat, jazzy ambiance for all of the guests (including myself!). They accommodated my music requests, were responsive on messages beforehand, offered a great price, and were a pleasure to work. Thank you very much to Mike and his band for making my wedding reception so special!
Martan is a fabulous teacher! He focuses on jazz and blues piano, but is happy to help students with any piano topic. Highly recommended!
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!
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.
Professional, talented musicians. A pleasure to deal with. They get it.
