I hired the Groovy Judy Band for my wedding and was thoroughly impressed by their professionalism, musicianship and choice of songs. They really kept the pace going and everyone - Millennials through Boomers - were dancing and had a great time. I highly recommend Groovy Judy for any event. :-)

When I proposed to my girlfriend of 8 years in San Francisco, I knew I needed someone there to set the mood. Dustin has an incredible voice (he was signed to a label!) and he's willing to adjust the style and tempo of any song to meet your needs. He's located in the Bay Area, and he doesn't charge travel fees unless it's outside of the city. From what I remember, they weren't nearly as much as other musicians. I Skype "interviewed" him and he sang a few songs for me - that's going the extra mile to land the gig! Whenever we settle on a venue, he's going to be the first one I go to for our ceremony. I haven't heard his full band yet, but I'd audition them for our reception as well!

This is long overdue. Funky Sound Experience Band performed at my husband's 40th birthday in Oakland. People were dancing all night. I am super impressed with them. They performed great songs. I wish I could have had them perform longer!

Pentimento Jazz was a great addition to our college campus event! It is clear that Mike and his group very much enjoy what they do, and their music adds a wonderful vibe to any event.

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.

Chick Jagger rocks and so do The Falling Rocks! If you love the Stones you can't not love this band. As a plus, they play a great mix of other tunes you will undoubtedly enjoy and the drummer truly rocks (as do the other band members). Go see what you've been missing!

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!

About

From 1965 to 1973, I performed and took on the leadership with my rock band called Yellow Brick Road, located in the San Francisco Bay Area. At that time, my band enjoyed performing alongside some well-known groups in the San Francisco Bay Area. During 1974, after many years of performing with Yellow Brick Road, I moved to South San Jose. At that time, I decided to continue my passion for music and form a band with my own family and felt that it was only appropriate to call my new band "The Family." While forming a family band, My Family band performed all around the Bay Area for many years. That included the following: - The Policeman - Ball in the late 1970 While Diane Feinstein was a guest speaker on that special night, that was pretty cool.
