It is with great pleasure that I write to recommend the services of Mr. Clifford Lamb, piano teacher. Clifford has been teaching my 11-year-old daughter for the last 12 months. Clifford came to our house weekly for a 60-minute lesson and has always been very punctual, polite and warm in his demeanor. His flexibility made it easy to reschedule if necessary. Thanks to Cliffords consummate teaching abilities, consistently positive approach and patience, my daughter has made impressive progress in both theory and practice. Together they explored not only classical pieces but also my daughters favorite pop songs, and Clifford even introduced her to the basic skills of songwriting. Cliffords vocation for music and teaching is more than obvious. As parents, we are very appreciative of the support and encouragement Clifford has given our daughter in her musical education. I would be happy to talk to parents about Cliffords abilities as a piano teacher.
Kelly not only went the extra mile and set everything up for the outdoor pop-up show, but he also went out of his way to bring things we might need like blankets and battery operated candles. He took care of everything and the couple I was setting this up for was so happy with how it all turned out. Kelly is definitely your guy if you want to set up something special. He also works with some amazing musicians you would enjoy.
I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.
I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.
Jeffrey is a superior piano teacher and pianist. I'm a full-time music teacher in the Bay Area, with over 25 years of experience. I'm also the founding director of a popular after-school music program, so I've hired many music teachers over the years. Jeffrey is by far my favorite! I have recommended Jeffrey to a number of my students and they have all excelled at a rapid pace under his musical guidance. Jeffrey has high standards and expectations for his students and at the same time is gentle and patient with them. He has a systematic approach to music reading, harmony, improvisation and composition which has proven to be most effective with all his students. He knows hundreds and hundreds of songs and can play in any style including classical, rock, pop, Latin and his specialty, jazz. You're musical life will be transformed in a most positive way if you have the privilege of studying with this master teacher. Highly recommended for both children and adults.
We hired Groovy Judy and her band to perform at a biker event. She was extremely professional and the band was great! They played well and their song selection was perfect. I highly recommend her.
Scott is a fantastic piano teacher. He has taught both me and my son for years. Scott has an encyclopedic knowledge of music theory, infinite patience and knows how to inspire. When we met Scott, my son Brett was contemplating quitting piano because he had a terrible experience with his prior teacher. Now Brett is an avid piano player who practices constantly and is a stand out in his school band. Brett's success is owing to Scott who has brought the joy of music to leaning the piano. Similarly, Scott has taught me to play music (at age 49) to the point that I now play in two different Rock and Roll bands a gigs throughout the Bay Area. Scott is simply a brilliant teacher and a great musician. I completely recommend Scott to Piano students of all ages, abilities and goals.
Noah is a great teacher! He is very skilled at breaking down music and making it easy to understand.
For anyone looking to hire a band, look no further than Retro Jukebox! We recently had Retro Jukebox play at our wedding, and many guests told us that the band was the highlight of their experience-- the minute they opened the dance floor with a James Brown number, everyone rushed to get moving and shaking! As clients, we were incredibly impressed with Retro's ability to cater the event experience to a cross-cultural audience of various backgrounds and ages. A significant percentage of our audience was Indian, and they were able to put together a program which appealed to all. We appreciated their flexibility in allowing a short 'Indian music' segment, even doing some improv and dancing along with it! Hopefully, this also inspired a few ideas for future gigs as well. :-) Additionally, my husband and I both sing, and wanted to perform a song with the band at our wedding. To accommodate our request, Retro held multiple rehearsals with us both prior to the event and day of the event. Geechi, the band's lead singer, even cut short a gig to practice the entire entrance and production before the guests arrived, which was instrumental in pulling off a seamless performance. Our guests were simply wowed by the introduction that greeted them when they walked in-- it felt like a professional show. Geechi not only delivered as an excellent vocalist, but also as an entertaining and charismatic emcee. His rendition of Billy Ocean's 'Suddenly' stood out as the finest instance of musicality in the entire evening-- my father went up to the stage and asked him to perform an encore of the entire song. Talent, professionalism, and an infectious positivity-- that is Retro Jukebox! Thank you for making our wedding so special.
Joe and J Silverheels were an awesome cover band! They tailored my wish list as requested and all four musicians had amazing talent. The energy was perfect as they engaged the audience throughout the performance. It was an intimate urban outdoor setting, they were able to adjust the sound level accordingly and brought some cool lighting to spice things up just that much more. The dance floor opened up quickly and it was a great synergy. I would not hesitate to recommend this band; especially if you want to mix in some quality jazz with a wide selection of rock and roll. Last but not least, they play a mean harmonica plus tenor and alto saxophones to boot!!
TheTimebandits are the best band around!! We have hired them for our crab feed for 13 years and plan on continuing to hire them. They have a following of their own so that helps your event to be successful too.
I took lessons with Angel for a year in 2010 in Los Angeles, He was recommended to me by a friend. I hired him to get ready for an audition for a band I wanted to be a part of, I didn’t get in but I actually ended up putting my own band together and we still going at it today. Angel advice and dedication to me as a voice student is something I will never forget and always be thankful for. You need to come back to LA, or maybe I should move to SF. ;)
WOW!!! Nick is AMAZING! Jazz, pop, R&B, even a little country! He did it all! And he took EVERY SINGLE request! He's like a human jukebox! Would recommend to anyone!
Drew's music brings a party alive. He can be center stage with a band or background solo on his guitar. Great breadth of musical styles. Absolutely five stars.
The GTS Band has been my favorite for years, so I was thrilled when I was asked to contract with them for a high school reunion. Rick was great and easy to work with. We placed the band centrally in the room to give the lead singer an opportunity to work the room as he performed--which he does so well. As always, the music was fantastic!
Great job. Everyone loved the band and the members were so polite. I will use them again.
Professional, talented musicians. A pleasure to deal with. They get it.
I'm a rock/jazz drummer with experience working out songs, building bands, and organizing live sets. I usually work with a guitarist and bassist, and I'm used to improvising new drum parts to go along with their riffs and solos. I'm less about crazy chops and drum solos, and more about just delivering a great, steady beat. I also manage a small practice space, Abbot Studio. Our recording equipment isn't great, but it's enough for a proof of concept, and I have a good relationship with a more professional recording studio, ShatteredRecords. I'm located in Dale City, CA.
