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.

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.

The Steve Manshel band played at our corporate holiday party and absolutely could not have been better! People were talking about them for days afterwards. You can't beat a great band with a great set list, and this one has it all!

I've worked with Aural Elixir on many recorded and live music projects since 2001. The band and its leader, Jesse Maclaine, are always professional, creative, and willing to make every project an outstanding experience for everyone involved. I highly recommend this musician and band!

Teresa was my daughter's piano teacher here in Chicago from kindergarten to 8th grade. From time to time, aside from piano lessons she helped my daughter with her clarinet for her school band. Teresa was an excellent teacher & a wonderful person. She inspired my kids with her works. I highly recommend her for everyone that needs a music lesson.

I had Robert Duran do sound for my band, a number of times. When we do perform, my first choice is Robert at DSP events. He is producing and directing a video for my band now, and everything is running smooth.

I played in a jazz quintet with Mr. Bacalzo. Dean was the band leader and organizer, choosing the songs we played and making arrangement decisions in a collaborative setting. Dean's command of the piano and musical theory knowledge were two of his strongest attributes. He exercised an impressive and creative ability in his improvisational skills and out-of-box interpretations of our jazz standard repertoire.

Derek Y Daniel are superb musicians. Their classical/flamenco style of guitar music is performed with great precision which, as an audience member, is very exciting to experience. Derek Y Daniel have performed several times at my coffee shop for music nights, as well as, for art receptions and other special events taking place in our venue. I can count on Derek Y Daniel to be punctual, professional and to put on an excellent show. It's always a pleasure working with Derek Y Daniel.

This is the best band around. The complexity of sound, the energy of the musicians, and the all-around quality of their performance cannot be surpassed! Working with Sticks is a joy. He knows everything about the music, production, and technology to assure a great experience. It's always a joy to work with true professionals.

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.

The Funky-Bots

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!!!

Vi Wickam is an exceptional and versatile musician. He is a rare musician who is equally at home in a tuxedo playing for an elite soiree or in blue jeans playing in a bluegrass jam. Last summer I contracted Vi Wickam to perform for 200 guests at the Opera Fort Collins "Songs in Summer" garden party at the Hixon home. As a strolling violinist he played everything from classical violin melodies to old time and Celtic fiddle tunes. Vi is also the founder and first violinist with the Fort Collins String Quartet. His traditional music includes guest appearance with bluegrass and old time music bands and recordings. He is also releasing a much anticipated solo CD this Spring! I highly recommend Vi The Fiddler for any event. He is reliable, courteous, and professional. Quality matters!
