I love this guy! Vince is so welcoming and easy going. If you want your wedding or event to have beautiful music you must hire him! He's a professional who knows how to make sure your event is what you want! I will be recommending him to everyone I know! :)
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
It's such a pleasure to work with someone who is so passionate about music. Brandon has a very fine attention to detail and is never one to cut corners. He's also very patient and personable, unlike other "stuffy" instructors I've had in the past. It's obvious he wants to share his passion for violin with the world!
We loved rock band Reckless. They have a great repertoire and well rehearsed. Voices and talents are excellent. I could not have asked for more. We hired them for a surprise birthday party and our guests loved them. Kim the band leader has her act together and responded promptly to any and all questions. Super easy to work with and a wonderful addition to your party. Would hire them again in a heartbeat.
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.
I have seen Natalie play a few times and I am always impressed. She plays a wide range of songs and it's very entertaining. She had a list with about 100 different songs that she covers, but the best part is she had a few albums of her original music that I was able to take home. Keep on rockin' Natalie.
I can't say enough wonderful things about The Happiness Band! We hired them to play jazz and classical music at our engagement and our guests loved them! Not only were they very talented, but a couple of days prior to the event I asked if the band would be willing to learn background music to a modern song for my sister to sing at our event and they totally pulled it off! They even rehearsed with her before the event started. They were very skilled, came and set up on time, and worked with our budget! I definitely plan on reaching out to them again in the future!
Stefano is the only reason I still play drums. He has really helped me focus my playing and technique to be a better drummer, and musician.
Margie is absolutely the best! She’s fun, loving, caring and has a great attitude in life and her music. I worked with her on her music video “George Clooney” and it was a blast!
We commissioned Nova Mariee to perform with her band during our the dinner portion of our wedding reception and glad that we did! We asked to to perform a playlist of song that we wanted to hear live. From the initial contact to the day of the event it, the communication was outstanding. The performance was loved by all our guests, would love to work and refer Nova Mariee anytime! Amazing voice and band!
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.
I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!
He's has patience with me. Encouraging. Flexible with scheduling. Easy going. I'm a beginner and I'm feeling excited about the road ahead. He is also located super close to me which is huge for me also.
I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.
Very professional band and awesome musicians. We had a blast!
