Tucker provided a great environment of fun classic rock music for my daughter's graduation party. The kids and adults enjoyed listening and dancing to the music. Would definitely hire him again.
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!
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.
Jamie really is the most amazing music teacher! I hired her to introduce my 4 year old daughter to violin. Jamie is Suzuki certified and has years of experience teaching children of all ages (and adults). When she arrived, my daughter was shy, but Jamie brought her out with her natural charm. It probably didn't hurt that Jamie has a young child of her own at home! She clearly knows about attention span and how to pace a lesson. By the end of the lesson, my daughter was comfortably holding the violin and eager to make sounds. One thing which I really appreciated was the fact that Jamie spent 10 minutes afterwards filling me in on her impressions, giving me pointers as to how to nurture a budding interest, and talking through the Suzuki process. Before falling asleep later that night, my daughter said, "I love the violin!" Wow. She had shown zero interest before. This lesson exceeded ALL expectations! Jamie is a real gem!!!!
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!
Very talented singer/guitarist who can cover songs with his own original flare AND writes his own music. A true pleasure to listen and watch him work.
I'm a rock keyboardist from St.Louis MO. I've studied with Kevin on and off over the last 15 years and it was usually when I had an audition or gig with a major touring artist, Kevin would work me through the material and then create exercises in that genre to really bring me up to speed quickly, I actually said to him once "You have to help me with this song, I sound like Axl Rose playing a bad waltz" well he did and I got through the gig
Michael Wilde and Neil Hartman are terrific! What a repertoire! Versatile, joyful---everything from the Great American Song Book to classic rock. We loved 'em!
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.
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.
It was my 60th Birthday and I wanted to go all out. I found several bands here on Thumbtack but either they were going to do a "show" for way too much money, or their demos sounded like a garage band...even though the price was reasonable. I wanted jazz and I also had a long list of my "own" requests. I met with Dave to discuss my event and he was very professional. His price was very fair. He even took some lyrics I had written and wrote music to them which the band played live at my event. The band members were awesome right from the start arriving on time and setting up efficiently. They introduced themselves to me personally and we had great communication all evening. Frankly....they were GREAT FUN! They played everything from the Bossa Nova to Frank Sinatra to the Beatles...and I requested a lot of Country and they even did that! Talented and tight. I even sang and played with them and it really made things even more memorable. I would recommend Dave and his musicians without any hesitation. Don't look any further for your next live band....contact Dave Hill and you will be thrilled!
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.
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!
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. :)
My daughter had a wonderful experience dealing with Cindy. She's is flexible with our busy schedule. My daughter learn french horn from cindy since middle school. She is now playing in her high school band and was able to played anything quickly . She owed it to cindy for having good tone. She improved very quickly through Cindy methods of teaching. Cindy is patients and also took real interest in my daughter ability. I'm glad my daughter have such a great teacher. Thank you Cindy!
Great musician! Can do many genres of music! Hire this guy and you won't be disappointed 😎
Worked with my son to improve for school band. Worked with him on his level. Was patient, reliable and my son loved him.
CJ is an excellent teacher. He is super knowledgeable, patient and professional. Plus, this guy rocks and is super talented! Would recommend any day A+++++++
A bit about myself, before I delve into praise for Chloe Pourmorady; I am a jazz musician and co-frontwoman of the LA band The B's and The Honey. We perform an eclectic melange of French, German and American Jazz, Soul and Rock music with a variety of performers trained at the Berklee College of Music and Loyola Marymount University. I first met Chloe while we were both students of classical music at Loyola Marymount, and was immediately impressed by her intensity and the joy with which she approaches her relationship to music. Since graduating, I have invited Chloe to perform with The B's and The Honey, as well as collaborated with her on several original songs, performed with her own musical collective, Melanchloé. Chloe Pourmorady creates musical ideas like most people walk with one foot in front of the other. Her upbringing as a child of Persian refugees has undoubtedly influenced her musical language, though her passion for expanding and deepening that vocabulary extends from her youthful experiments with electropunk songwriting, to her rigorous study of classical violin, to her exploration of Eastern European and Romani Folk music. Both as a teacher and a performer, Chloe is constantly pushing herself to communicate musical ideas with artful intention, and this detication makes her an asset to whatever endeavor she to which she chooses to lend her talents.
We are very professional in everything we do and how we conduct ourselves.
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.
