My son Shane wanted to take heavy metal guitar lessons, and my friend recommended Mike. I never wanted to pressure Shane to stay with lessons, but I didn't need to; not only did he learn songs from the rock bands he loved, but he ended up falling in love with jazz. Mike was always so friendly and knowledgeable, and it was nice to hear Shane playing heavy metal one day and jazz the next. Michelle B.

Mike is a phenomenal teacher, and his many years of expertise are really demonstrated in his playing ability as well as his pedagogy. As an adult learner, I appreciate that he adapts each lesson to better suit me and my own guitar-playing goals. Mike effectively teaches the songs you want to learn, while also tying in the music theory fundamentals, so it's easy for you to grow as a musician.

I would highly recommend guitar lessons with Mike. I started lessons with no guitar experience, but a significant amount of piano experience. He is very patient, allowing me to set the pace and pick the music that is most appealing to me. He is also very encouraging, which makes me more comfortable with my progress.

I took my 15 year old daughter in to Greg for her first recording experience. As Greg has said on his website, you need to "ask the right questions." We did not even know where to start. Greg and his awesome crew welcomed us in and over the course of a few months, my daughter has recorded four great songs with musicians that Greg provided, her songs have been mixed and mastered and they are amazing, Greg and his crew have filmed a video for one of the songs, and Greg has helped immensely with teaching us the ropes of marketing & the music business. If you want suits & ties, DO NOT go to KMG. This crew loves and lives music. If you want genuine people who will listen, embrace you like family, and work until all hours of the night, then call KMG. Their equipment and studios are top of the line, and with the expansion Greg has done, I have to think, KMG has BEST equipment between LA and Nashville. We have been extremely pleased with our time there, and with all of the talented people who work there. Frankly speaking, I have a lot of years in college & I can't do any of what Ryan can do to engineer a song at the soundboard. The instrumentation, computers, electronics, and sound quality is not something you get sitting listening to a professor. These guys have extraordinary talent, and it's all in one place at KMG. If you are considering recording, definitely give them a call.

KMG. Man, these guys know what they are doing. Seriously. Music has been my passion my entire life and KMG is the only studio in Denver that has been able to take my music to the next level. And trust me, I've been around the block a few times when it comes to studios. I am so honored to be able to work with such a talented, dedicated, creative team. You will come for the music, and stay for the family atmosphere. No matter what you have in mind for your music goals, KMG can help you achieve them and so much more. The sky is the limit. I am a singer from Denver, CO and am working with them on my first original album. Whatever expectations I had going in to my project, I scratched all of them because KMG has given me the hope that I can achieve anything I could possibly want and more on my album. I have grown so much as an artist and as a person from working with these amazing people and I could not be more grateful for my experience at KMG.

I purchased studio time for my nephew as a graduation present. KMG Life was very responsive and easy to work with getting everything setup. I asked my nephew and he loved the experience. His band's debut album is coming out soon and KMG helped this dream become reality. Definitely recommended.

We had a last minute cancellation of our wedding day musicians and Peter and his partner were able to step in and they did an absolutely amazing job! Our ceremony was in Leadville, CO in the old synagogue and it was only the 2nd wedding to be held there since 1900. I could not have asked for better musicians to help make our day special. Everyone loved the music and they were able to improvise where needed to everyone's delight.

I hired Pete and the band Thunder & Rain for a work holiday party. The group was perfect for what we were looking for! The music was great and had a ton of variety. Pete handled the legal and risk requirements quickly. Thunder & Rain will most definitely be on my list of preferred bands!

The Steve Manshel Band was the absolute best. We hired them to play our wedding reception, but this isn't a wedding band - they are a true band. Their live show was so much fun! We had one goal for our wedding reception and that was for everyone to dance. Steve was able to get everyone up and dancing. I mean EVERYONE! He handed out cowbells, tambourines, and worked the crowded to everyone's delight. This band doesn't just play the usual repertoire of lame wedding songs, they surprise you with great songs and play them with 110% of their heart. Steve was able to read the crowd and played something for everyone. Their skill as musicians allowed them to take the songs they played to new limits as they rocked out the evening. They handled everything in regards to the music and entertainment for the evening and were flexible in dealing with the limited space of the venue, which was completely stress free for us. People tell us all the time that our reception was one of the most fun weddings they have ever been to. This was because of the Steve Manshel Band. They will not disappoint.

Warning! Only hire Steve Manshel if you want you and your guests to have a great time! Don't blame me if the dance floor gets crowded and people get sweaty dancing. There is a danger that people who shouldn't be dancing still will! Hire him at your own risk!

John played guitar and was the lead singer in my band for several years until his job forced him to move to another city. John is positively the most talented musician I've ever played with in my fifty years of playing music. In addition to being an outstanding singer and musician, he is one of the nicest people I've ever known. Just knowing John has inspired me to a better musician and a better person.

Bob and the Dr played with four other band members for a private party in Parker last night. Wow! The first set transported me to the Village Vanguard as we listened to Miles Davis and other great jazz. Each musician is supremely talented,in their own right, but the real alchemy occurs when then blend. .. amazing performance by all, with an encode of Spooky that left all clamoring for more. Can't say enough about the music, the arrangements, Bob Neuwoehner's original compositions. The evening was a huge success, and Blue Stone Mojo was an integral part of that. Bring these gifted pros to your event, you will be glad you did. Eric Zelt, Parker CO.

Bob Neuwoehner & his band Blue Stone Mojo performed at an event at Vi at Highlands Ranch Sr. Living for a 'Walk to Remember' fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Association, CO Chapter. They gave us a deep discount as part of their donation for this great cause! Both the residents & staff enjoyed the band very much. Folks were dancing and those who were not, it was obvious that they were enjoying the music! It was a very hot day and the band didn't complain and just played on...even beyond the time that we had requested! Thanks so much Blue Stone Mojo!!!

I would most definitely recommend Sydney's piano lessons! She is a very helpful and patient teacher; not to mention, she is also a very skilled musician. Her piano lessons have set a great foundation for me in music. The knowledge that I have from her lessons helps me to play with other musicians and to play in my school marching band. I have learned much about music theory from Sydney as well as a love for playing piano. If Sydney hadn't moved away, I would still love to have her as my piano teacher today.

We received percussion lessons from Kevin Keith. He not only is an excellent musician, but he is a wonderful teacher. He is very knowledgeable in many genres of music, from solo literature, to band/orchestral music, to jazz. Of which, he shares his knowledge and experiences with his students freely. He is very hardworking and enthusiastic to ensure that his students get a quality education. He is great in communication, both with the student , in ensuring understanding of lesson materials, and with the parents on updates on how the lessons are progressing. He has a very patient and friendly disposition, that would allow anyone to feel comfortable in working with him. He has been a wonderful teacher and mentor for the past 2.5 years.

Kevin was a great private lesson teacher for my 8th grade percussionist! He was very flexible and accommodating with scheduling, and the wise instruction he provided allowed my son to get the highest rating possible at Solo and Ensemble, win a distinguished scholarship award at the end of the school year from his band, and earn a coveted position in the high school drumline as only a freshman. Kevin provided insightful coaching which expanded my son's repertoire of instruments and technique.

Verified review

Kevin has a very broad depth of knowledge in many genres of music. His high level of expertise leads to a highly specialized lesson structure. Mr. Keith's prior music experiences in vocal, wind band, orchestral and piano/organ performance have left him with a breadth of specialized skills that he passes along to those whom he teaches. I wholeheartedly recommend Kevin Keith!

Robert Duran, owner of DSP Events, has run sound for The Jakarta Band for the past 2 years and we have been extremely satisfied with his work. Not only has he won over Isaac Points who is very particular about who does sound for his band, but the musicians and vocalists with Jakarta have also been won over by Robert because he gets it right. He is always set up and ready for sound check in plenty of time for the band to get done what they need to do. He works the show the entire time, mixing and changing on the fly for the many features of the band, changing vocalist, and demands from the clients. He is extremely good and he is reasonable. We love working with Robert. - Jackie Posey, Manager, The Jakarta Band

Brett is one of the most underrated and talented guitar players in Colorado. I worked with Brett for a few years and my playing improved leaps and bounds as compared to my earlier efforts with publications and other instructors. His balanced approach and eagerness to see his students win on guitar is a testament to his professionalism and genuine demeanor. He makes the learning process fun and engaging. I couldn't recommend a more gifted and caring person to anyone that wants to uncover their true musical potential. Brett is the best there is.

Brett Funk is a fantastic guitar instructor. I was with Brett for 5 years before we moved and he had me playing songs within the first 2 or 3 lessons, and I continued to progress rapidly the entire time I was with him. Brett also instructed my daughter who was about 10 when she started with him, and within 2 years she was in a band that was featured at the County Fair. BFGS is absolutely the first and last place you should look if you want to be awesome at guitar.

Brett is a very enthusiastic and professional music instructor. He has a very wide range of music to teach but is also more than willing to learn a new song to teach to his students. If it can be played on a guitar, Brett can teach it.

All night long during my wedding reception, the praise was relentless: "Where the hell did you find this band? They are incredible!" The Funky-Bots absolutely slay! I'm a musician myself, so it was really important to me to find a band that was tight and fun and played music with a real groove that will make people dance at my wedding. I sampled dozens of bands and got tons of quotes, but the clip Stephen sent me of his bandmates playing stuck out immediately. This isn't some corny neighborhood bar band with a rigid list of songs to choose from. The Bots are impeccably trained professionals, and everyone at my wedding could sense they were different. From the first meeting with Stephen, I felt at ease with his professionalism and confidence. He and his band never balked at a request, and were willing to try out anything, and everything they tried succeeded. Paige, the singer, has unbelievable poise and soul in her voice; she is a rare talent that you aren't going to find in most wedding bands. I could tell the band spent a lot of time practicing our songs, and they had fun with the arrangements. That energy and looseness carried over to the crowd; people can sense when the band is having fun, and it just makes the whole show exponentially better. The Bots came on time, were prompt with setup and flexible with the schedule, and were all around kind and gracious people. My only regret is that they couldn't play longer. I will recommend them to everyone I know till the day I kick the bucket. Thanks so much, y'all!!!

There are truly no words to describe my love and appreciation for both Turi and Hipster Mama Productions. Working as an Director of Events in the Media world I have used a couple of bands at both smaller and larger expos. Her professionalism, her passion and her love for her clients is one I will never never take for granted. I love her so much, she is the band at my sisters wedding coming up in Summer of 2016. If I could recommend any of her bands, I would say you wont be disappointed. They are truly the best!

Mature, professional, experienced, seasoned. Mobile live musicians and DJ's are largely a fly-by-night bunch. I have been doing this at a serious top-shelf level for over 15 years, and I take every event as seriously as though it were my own. Music and entertainment are one of the most important aspects of your function and the quality will reflect on you for years to come; don't cut corners with a budget-priced newbie.
