Jason and his group were FABULOUS, so easy to work with, and the music was enjoyed by all!! We had 140+ friends, family, vendors, office, etc from 3 yrs old to 99 years old and we got tons of complements on Jason and the J-Mann band. I will DEFINITELY be calling them for the next party. They brought everything they needed - even their stools and had music playing even when they took breaks. I actually only remember one break (they MUST have taken more) and we had them 4 hours. Jason is a people pleaser and asked me to let him know if there was ANYTHING we needed from him - but the volume of the music was PERFECT and my vendors for the party were dancing to it while THEY sat up. It sure lifted MY spirits because they sat up an hour before the party - while I was still frantically making sure everyone had everything needed.

Ron was very professional. Showed up on time and played beautifully! He can play many types of music. Even though we had him play for our mother's 90th birthday, he can play everything from swing, Latin, jazz, modern, pop, and rock 'n roll. A plus is that he sings very well, too. Highly recommend.

We loved having Zene Strings play at our wedding. For more than a few years, I've wanted to have a string quartet play pop songs at my eventual wedding. Throughout the course of my life, I've attended many weddings, but have not heard the positive buzz and feedback about the entertainment as I did with their performance at my wedding. It has been nearly a week since my wedding and I am still hearing some comments from friends that have seen video the wedding. But aside from the actual gig, the preparation, the knowledge, and the responsiveness beforehand ensured this could be an item I could scratch off my "worry" list. I feel like I kept throwing strange customizations and requests at them and the accommodation and value for my money was beyond expectation. It was a pleasure to work with them and I hope to have another event where I can use their services again.

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!

Both my son and I have taken guitar lessons from Brian for a few years. It has been a great experience learning a wide variety of styles, from classic Rock to Jazz. And his patience has definitely helped our playing improve over time. I would recommend Brian for anyone from beginner to experienced.

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!

Josh and I married September 6th at the Scripps Forum in La Jolla and Republic of Music (ROM) made our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!!!! Since I had been planning our wedding from Washington, I didn't get to see the band live prior to our wedding. My dad and siblings went to see ROM play at Club M in Del Mar and they were blown away!! I was already impressed by the reviews and YouTube videos I had seen and read. I knew they were going to be the perfect match for our wedding day and I was totally right!! ROM is professional, fun, amazing and freakishly good at their craft! Vocals were ON POINT and the musicians brought the funk!! We opted to splurge on horns two weeks before the wedding and it was a great decision!! Our guests LOVED the band and their personalities and stage presence set the mood for the night. I cannot say enough about Tiana and how amazing she is to work with. She eased my way from the moment I spoke with her. (I had already booked another band but changed my mind once I was told about ROM) She provided me with piece of mind and made our day run so smoothly. The band did an excellent job keeping our day on schedule and emceed the entire event perfectly. It was really comforting to know that our families could enjoy the evening and not have to worry about making announcements or keeping the night on schedule. Dinner music was amazing, slower songs really allowed you hear just how amazingly talented the vocalists are. As the evening progressed Josh and I did not stop dancing all night along with our guests! My sisters and I also got to be band mates for the day and sing with the band which was pretty epic!! My dad is a man of few words, but he couldn't stop talking about the band for days!! He already said he wants to book ROM for their 40th wedding anniversary!! If you're looking for a band for your big event, stop looking!!! You have found who you are looking for!! ROM will not disappoint! I wish I could crash all the weddings they performed at so I can sing and dance the night away. That's how awesome they are! Thank you ROM for everything!!! Your forever fans, Mr. & Mrs. Calkins!

Marcela's band Honey Rock played at our wedding 3 years ago, and we still talk about what a great evening of dancing we enjoyed! They played everything from The Stones to Michael Jackson to Adele, so there was something for everyone. Marcela even took some time to learn our special song by Van Morrison so we could have our "bride and groom first dance". We still seek out Marcela and her band on occasion and go for a night out of listening and enjoying. They're fabulous! Tim and Susi Haugh

I've seen Ottopilot perform at a number of venues and I've become a huge fan! They have a diverse repertoire of covers and originals from Jack Johnson to Metallica. Their acoustic rock style is perfect for corporate events, private parties, live-music venues and even weddings. They are professional with just the right amount of fun and cater to a clients needs. I would give them 6 stars if I could and I highly recommend them!

Jesse and the band did a fantastic job for our birthday party. Played the music that we requested and were very professional. Came on time, started on time and sounded great. I would certainly hire them again for another event.

Jordo makes his own music which is amazing and also plays covers! I loved having him at my venue. He can perform any song you want. I have never heard anything quite like him! He uses his loop pedals to make one guitar sound like a huge band. I can liken him to is Ed Sheeran. He is reasonably priced but there is no way he will be be able to keep his prices so low for so long. He can perform for anything. Weddings, shows, parties, and just about anything. If you call him he would love to help you out!

My son Max has been taking lessons with Ed for several years now and we couldn't be happier. Ed is an awesome music teacher with many talents. His knowledge of playing in a band has been a great help for my son. Ed will jump in and play the bass line with Max if needed. I love that he can teach vocals, guitar, bass, and drums and get in there and jam with my son, too. Ed's awesome! I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a music teacher. Terry
