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
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!
I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.
Best money we spent on our wedding! I can’t even tell you how beyond thrilled my husband and I are about the amazing job Tyler did performing at our wedding. It truly made our already special day beyond amazing! We wanted something that would get the party started right off from the ceremony to the cocktail hour. Can’t tell you how many people commented on how amazing it was to have Tyler playing saxophone. Tyler played keyboard during our ceremony. I am getting chills just thinking about it now, but the moment I heard him playing just before I walked down the aisle, the emotion of the day hit me like a wave. From our quick ceremony and onto the cocktail hour Tyler’s playing brought life to our guests and to us. Tyler was excellent at communicating both with myself, our DJ and our planner. He was so organized and thoughtful with our day! I don’t think I could thank him enough times. It was more than we could have ever imagined. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Tyler!! Sarah & Tyler Angelos
Cliff is such a TALENTED MUSICIAN! He's an excellent performer with top quality skills on the guitar! When he puts together a band for an occasion you can be sure that he will arrive prepared and surpass your expectations! He's also a fine composer. As a teacher he is kind, compassionate and truly gifted. He's warm and an excellent communicator. BEST IN LA!!!
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.
I Learned All aspects of singing and playing Acoustic guitar classic songs. Michael ( teacher ) was very good and patient bringing my playing and my confidence up to now being able to sing and play songs with & for friends, family and the general public. Michael continues to be a great resource, I really appreciate what he has done for my playing, Thanks Michael !
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 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.
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.
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. :)
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!!!
Emma sang at my wedding. She's not only gorgeous, her voice is also fantastic and powerful. She sang a capella as well as with a band and both performances were awesome: tear provokers and dance instigators. I'd recommend her any day.
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.
