The kids at my daughter's 5th birthday party loved it. He brought little music shakers for all the kids so they felt like they were in a band. And great music to listen to as you're eating and hanging out with friends. Thanks Tucker
When you're getting married, you want all the people around you to not only do the jobs they've been hired to do, but you want them to exude a supportive, happy, encouraging, can-do energy: Mr. Gilmartin does all of that, and more. He arrived super early for the event, dressed appropriately, and with a big smile on. He had learned a song that we asked him to learn for our processional, and paced it exactly right for walking and to end exactly when the bride arrived at the altar (I still don't know how he managed that). He was great at taking cues and last-minute ceremony instructions, and -- oh yes, did I mention? -- he is a GREAT guitarist! He can switch seamlessly from Latin to Brazilian to classical to jazz to pop or folk without missing a beat. Later, at the reception he took requests and was fun for the guests at our small wedding, showing tremendous social as well as musical skill. Mr. Gilmartin will bring you no problems, only solution, and beautiful, beautiful music for your special day. I recommend him highly.
Tim is an amazing guy! He's very professional/fun. My band and I where happy with the sound we got out of his studio.
Great band! Great music! Very professional! Very nice attitude!
I have been a student of Kim's for the past 4 years. I have had and am still having a wonderful experience. She is a very skilled guitar player and instructor. Her teaching studio is a comfortable and private area, and in addition she has a recording studio separate from her regular teaching studio. The recording studio is where her students get to meet and team up with other musicians and learn the process of playing together and making recordings. This experience at playing as a group with a drummer and other musicians has been invaluable training. Especially if one wishes to go professional. Kim has an extremely sound knowledge of music theory and a way of teaching that varies depending on her students. I would highly recommend Kim as a teacher for all levels of musicians that need additional skill to add to their current knowledge.
Reckless was the host band for my wife's recent surprise birthday party. They were professional in every way. Kim was always responsive to texts and emails as the date got closer. On the night of the event they were an absolute pleasure. So many of the attendees were impressed with their set list and musicality. I would highly recommend them as a classic rock cover band.
Taylor created a very professional, radio ready song for me. He works extremely fast and knows how to construct modern music that sounds like he hired a full band. The mix was fantastic music and singer alike. I highly recommend Taylor for your project.
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
The John Brown Band played the Redondo Beach 4th of July Block Party and had the whole neighborhood rockin' out all night long. What a party!! After I heard them play, I knew I wanted to hire them for my wedding in San Diego on August 29. We had a great experience working with John and would recommend them in a heartbeat. The #1 comment from our wedding guests was how awesome the band was!! Upbeat song selection, dance-ability, and timing were perfect, even with no rehearsal on the Bridal Party Entrance!!! They even played a very special song (Harvest Moon) which I had totally forgotten to request - just perfect. And we got some GREAT pictures. :)
They were fantastic they made our party so great. They were so easy to work with, flexible, upbeat and great entertainers. They knew how to get the party stared. We had terrible hot weather to deal with and they never skipped a beat. They're interaction with the guests coming out into the crowd making everyone have fun and feel included. If you are lucky enough to get this band you can know your party will be a success and fun. I'm already trying to think of another party just to have them back.
We hired this wonderful band for our wedding. They went above and beyond to make our day extra special and worked with our budget. They even learnt our special song requests and all our guests absolutely would not stop raving about how amazing the band was. I would highly recommend.
Hugo played for me at a surprise party for my husband. He was fantastic! So many people commented on how great the music was. I would hire Hugo again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!
Emma sang at my wedding. She's not only gorgeous, her voice is also fantastic and powerful. She sang a capella as well as with a band and both performances were awesome: tear provokers and dance instigators. I'd recommend her any day.
Mark was on time with a full catalogue of music. He was outgoing and affable. Very eager to please. Completely satisfied. Will definitely use him again.
I've been involved with the LAPC for about 3 years, using it for production and most currently as a rehearsal space and attending the weekly open mic. James has flawlessly mixed albums for my previous band and has produced amazing music with my current project. As a rehearsal space, the sound and equipment are quality along with it being a unique aesthetic in itself, setting a creative and motivating vibe. The colorful lighting and tree-sized mural lining the hallway makes you want to play like you're in a music video. The open mics are a great place to share a fresh song, or meet new people and artists weekly. I can't speak highly enough about the abundance of love and talent that is at L.A. Producers Club! Highly recommend, if nothing else, coming by to hang out under the disco ball teepee and hear some comedy and jams on a Wednesday night!
I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!
Very Professional, excellent top of the line equipment, reasonable rate! 100% recommended!
We stand out because of our talent, hard work, and desire to make the music aspect of your party or event, the thing that everyone walks away talking about.
I am easy to work with, listen to the needs of my clients and provide mature and professional musicians perfect for your event.
With their debut album receiving notable acclaim, this acoustic quintet is already making waves as one of the few true crossover bluegrass bands. Recent main stage performances at the Northwest String Summit, Mateel Summer Arts Festival, and Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest have cemented Hot October as a SoCal favorite as they prepare for their 2018 tour. While it might not be that uncommon for a bluegrass band to have all five musicians singing in harmony, what sets this group apart is the clear and apparent virtuosity of each individual working towards the greater composition. Lead vocals, traded by Paul Fuller (Banjo) and Jesse Olema (Fiddle), are supported by a masterful rhythm section. Craig Ferguson (Mandolin & Dobro), Sasha Birrittella (Guitar), and David Tranchina (Upright Bass) work together seamlessly creating a deep rooted pocket while trading sweeping, flat-picked lines for David’s unmatched bowed solos. Yes, the groups collective improvisations are something to be marveled at, but what is most exciting is seeing where the new generation of bluegrass music is headed, and looking at what Hot October is bringing to the table, let's just say that it's a very exciting time to be a bluegrass fan.
