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.
Thank you so much for making my birthday party a fabulous night to remember. You were awesome and everyone raved at what an awesome band I had found! I will definitely hire you again!!!! Living Cover Band Rocks!
Summer is an amazing theory teacher in so many ways! She's incredibly professional, patient, intuitive, and understanding and has the ability to teach to your personal learning style. Loved every minute of working with her, and it's helped advance my own understanding of music, both with guitar and singing, in a way that has allowed me to make leaps and bounds in my own songwriting as well as learning other music styles. Hire her, right this very minute!
We had a retirement party for a 28 year employee. The band was prompt professional and full of very good musicians. I'm now looking for excuses to hire the happiness jazz band for other events
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.
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.
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 used Tyler to play Sax while our guests arrived - can't say enough good things about him! He was quick to respond to our emails and gave us some awesome song choices. He took the lead the day of the wedding and coordinated with the wedding planner and other vendors - it was totally seamless. The guests LOVED his talent and we loved working with him.
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.
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.
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. :)
Very professional band and awesome musicians. We had a blast!
Mark helped us make our 40th wedding anniversary a big hit @ the LaCanada Country Club. We loved his style & music dinner hour impressive how he walk thru with his sax and played to each table with just the right tone. he played upbeat dancing & good listening music ..Can't go wrong with Mark on the saxophone. Fantastic!!! will hire again in a heartbeat All Good. Earl & Brenda DeWitt
Just what I was looking for in a jazz piano teacher! He listened to my goals and is crafting a teaching strategy to make me a better musician while enjoying the process. Looking forward to more piano lessons in the future. He also teaches saxophone.
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 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!
Oh my God Cliff Targum is a musical geniusHe took my song. " Hidden In The Basement" and turned it into a masterpieceHis producing skills are top-notch his dedication and approach are unprecedented His attention to details are refreshing to work around.He cares about every beat , every measure until he and the client are satisfied none of this " we'll fix it in the mix shit". No Cliff Targum is a true professional in every sense of the word.I look forward to working with him in the future with many of my musical projectsI have the utmost confidence in his abilities.
Norm Hughes always gives more than %100 to every job! His talent, coupled with musical knowledge and focus, is highly commendable and a huge asset. Besides being a superb sight-reader, he can take care of any situation, whether it be a fuller sound needed, or improvisation for jazz style, or filling in sparce accompaniments on the spot. Very dependable and professional.
I have worked with L.A. Rhythm Crew a few times. Larry Williams & his band are true professionals who will make your event unforgettable. They have a large song list with music for all ages. They will keep your guests on the dance floor for sure!
