Tucker provided live music for my daughter's 2nd birthday party. What was great about Tucker was that he really just set the mood in an authentic way. Other musical entertainment that I've seen at parties is largely based on getting kids to "participate". It was great to just have someone be genuine, enthusiastic and entertaining for kids and adults alike.

Aaron Glimartin was amazing! I hired him for my Birthday. He was a very talented musician that played from different genres. The price was very reasonable and he even had all the equipment (speakers, amp, instruments, etc.) to perform. I will definitely hire him again and will suggest him to my friends and family.

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.

I learned to play guitar when I was 12, then abandoned it for many years. Wanting to return to it years later as an adult, I wanted someone who could help me pick up where I left off. A friend from work referred me to Damien and I love his teaching style. His knowledge and understanding of music theory is exceptional and he has helped me progress tremendously. Damien takes a personal approach to teaching rather than a "classroom textbook" approach. I occasionally do events at a local venue and have hired Damien and his friends to play on several occasions and received rave reviews on his performance. Damiens musical energy flows from his fingers to the fretboard in a magical way. I highly recommend Damien to anyone looking to further their musical education!

Kim and her Reckless bandmates were amazing. We received so many compliments and they were perfect for our event. Professional, flexible, and so talented - the band did a great job of entertaining the crowd and I can't speak highly enough about how easy it was to work with them. Thank you Kim!

I hired Steven to play piano at my birthday party, for a fun sing-along event. At first I was nervous that no one would sing, but Steven knows so many songs and he quickly got people off their feet singing and dancing! My friends have all told me what a memorable and unique idea this was to have Steven play live piano music and I couldn't agree more. Steven was very kind and professional from the start, clearly laying out the terms in advance, he responded quickly to emails, and the follow through was a breeze. He could play all the songs my guests requested, transpose key, read sheet music, sing, and play from memory. He's very talented! We all had a blast!

Oh, my goodness. Ron was amazing from the start. He got right back to me when messaged, he asked for details to make sure our evening would be perfect, and he was a total pro start to finish. My guests (and more importantly, my boss!) were so impressed with how Ron provided a great flow of live and background music with a mix that kept everyone in the crowd happy. I was so pleased to see that a number of guests were eager to get his card and get in touch with him for their events! Thank you for a lovely evening, Ron!

If you are looking for a live saxophonist in Socal, Tyler is the guy. He is very professional, and he is passionate about what he does. Tyler comes prepared. He was a hit at our wedding. His playlist is classy and trendy. I would highly recommend him to everybody. My wife and I were so excited to have him be part of that memorable day.

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.

Mike Levin has been teaching guitar to our 11-year-old daughter for 18 months or so. He did a great job of teaching her the fundamentals and giving her all the tools she needed to succeed. By playing along with his electric guitar it makes it even more fun! Some of the music even comes with CDs to help with background music. Once our daughter had the basics down Mike made the class all about what she wanted to learn. He asked her to look through her iPod playlists and tell him who her favorite artists where or what were her favorite songs. We would then print off the sheet music and Mike would teach her the song and then have her play along with her iPod. It is a great way to learn! When Mike offered Skype lessons we were happy to try them…they have been great! Not only does it save Mike drive time, it is a lot of fun! Our daughter stays focused, likes using the Skype technology, and especially likes it when Mike records her music and then puts it on YouTube. This allows our out-of-state family to watch and listen to our daughter play her guitar…these are very proud moments for her! Our daughter is thoroughly enjoying her time learning the guitar with Mike...practicing is not an issue! I believe it is because he makes it fun to learn! Thanks, Mike!

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!!!
