We hired Tucker to be our guitarist for our wedding ceremony. I highly recommend him if you are looking for entertainment in your event! He went out of his way to do rehearsals to make sure everything is on point. He is very easy to work with and he did an amazing job!

Aaron played music for our wedding. It could not have been more perfect. He played a lot of his own original songs, and also spent time with us figuring what would work best for the day. I can't think of anyone with a more seemless blend of talent, creativity, beauty, patience, and curiosity.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.

The Sweet 16 party was a blast and Reckless was a hit! The music was fantastic and the vocals were so Rock n' Roll. We had both teens and adults and so many of my guests asked me where I found the band and commented how amazing and fun Reckless was at the party. The band was overall just fantastic. Only one drawback, in between sets we played iPod music that our guests danced too as well. Often when they began the next set the iPod song was cut off right in the middle. Other than that, absolutely no complaints. They were on time, did a great job and created a great fun experience for the guests. The highlight of the night was their grand finale with show-stoppers like "Rock n roll all night," "Don't stop believin" and "Livin on a prayer." To top it off they got my daughter on stage (who the party was for) and had her rockin' out. They gave her an experience and birthday she will never forget. Old and young alike, Reckless was a hit and a favorite. They put on an excellent show and were very professional. I will definitely have them back again for other parties.

Thank you all my wedding team! They provided me everything I need for a perfect wedding.

Also, they have very stylish app to make everything organized and trackable. Very cool!!! Highly recommend the whole team!!!

Steven helped us at our corporate event, I pushed him to make me look really good by hiring him...lol Steven was awesome, from the very beginning to the very end, very pleasant, patient, prompt, responsive, communicative, happy, accommodating, professional and all.... needless to say very talented. I had seen/listened to his work prior to hiring him so I was not worried about his work(I wish we could have a grand piano for his talent, unfortunately due to the venue we had to compromise with a keyboard), and he did not disappoint me/us. In addition to his professionalism his fee was very fair, I have no hesitations in recommending him to anybody, I would hire him for my wedding if I ever have a chance... :)

We hired Mr. Varnell for our wedding and could not have been happier with his performance! Not only a true musical talent, but an honest professional who can walk you through the "in's and out's" with ease on an already hectic day. I was so happy we did not hire a tacky DJ or the same old organ/piano player for our wedding...but instead brought the elegance and uniqueness of the saxophone. We received so many compliments from our guests. Would most definitely hire him again!

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.

John Brown is a talented musician. I hired him for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party. He was amazing! Played all of the songs we asked and sounded great. He even let my dad, who enjoys singing and playing the guitar harmonize with him for a few of the songs. My dad was over the moon about the experience. I will hire John again and again if I am in need of live music. Thank you John for making my parents 50th extra special!

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.

WOW! What an amazing band! We were absolutely blown away by these amazing musicians it is clear that they are all at the top of the field. We chose to book the 6 Piece with both male and female singers and boy! can they really really SING. They sounded amazing, looked fresh and fun and had such energy every single person at our wedding was on there feet even my dad who is 83. We had an absolute blast and everyone could not stopped raving about the band they asked if we stole them from American Idol!!!! I can tell you from the moment we were in contact they were communicative professional and handled everything, even thinking of things we haven't even thought of yet like lighting and sound requirements. The MC was charismatic, funny and charming and was able to tell our story with such class that my wife and I were in tears. We looked around for 6 months before choosing a band most great wedding bands were way way out of the budget, they were reasonably priced and for what you get which is one of the best bands i've ever seen at a wedding I actually think we should have been paying double or more like some of the bands we first looked at that weren't even as good. So thats my rant. Amazing. Blown Away. Memories for a lifetime. They do book up early were lucky we had our wedding on a Sunday so it wasn't a problem. If it was on Saturday we may not have been as lucky!

My wife and I initially heard Natalie playing in a wine bar in Las Vegas. Her sound was incredible and so unique. Her library of songs is extremely diverse and ranges from modern hits by artists like John Legend, Adele, Beyonce & Ed Sheeran to classics from Billy Joel, Tom Petty, Janis Joplin & Bob Dylan. We love getting to hear Natalie play wherever we can and even hired her to play at our wedding last year! I can't recommend Natalie enough. She is an incredible talent with contagious energy and you'll very quickly find yourself singing along to every single one of her songs. No matter what the occasion, Natalie is the perfect hire.

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!!!

Molly was amazing! She was professional from start to finish! She is amazing! We were lucky to have found her on such short notice and not only was she our officiant, but she sang our first dance as husband and wife. She did a beautiful version of "Sabes" by Reik. It left everyone at the wedding surprised. Not too many people have someone sing while the couple dances. But it wasn't just that, she gave us a ceremony that everyone was talking about. Thank you Molly for your great service. Definitely recommended.

The booking experience has been very enjoyable and professional! We sampled their work online and loved their flexibility and responsiveness. They work with your budget and are very knowledgeable and share that knowledge. I look forward to having them play at the wedding and will provide an updated review afterward.
