We hired Mike as a guitarist for our wedding. He met with us several months prior and learned several songs for our special day. He performed brilliantly - we highly recommend Mike S.
As an adult intermediate level student, Jerimiah Owens approached me with grace, respect and an appreciation for who I was as a musician. He quickly assessed my abilities and had no pre-conceived ideas about how it should be . He tailored his approach to me, not a method, and was more than eager to engage me immediately in technique and musicality. I left each lesson feeling a sense of accomplishment and an eagerness to continue to improve my piano playing. He is personable, friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and punctual. Of course he is a top-notch professional musician in his own right, and knows how to communicate and share his knowledge and exceptional skills with ease and comfort. I was happy and honored to have worked with him, and ended my lessons only because of life changes that precluded us continuing. I recommend Jerimiah highly to anyone-beginner to advanced, youth to adult learner—he is a good communicator, teacher, and a good man.
I hired Gary to play for a cabaret I was doing at the Stanley Hotel! It wasn't last minute but it was a short turn around. He was so professional and knocked it out of the park. From a performer standpoint he followed, took direction and was profecient in all styles of music. I have hired him to do another cabaret event this year and cannot wait to have a wonderful night of music!!
Gene is a very gifted musician, player, and teacher. He takes into account my musical background, yet is very patient with my progress as a guitar student. I also like his lighthearted attitude which puts me at ease. We work on music of many different genres, but He always has learning a guitar technique in mind. He also is a master sound technician. He owns his own recording studio and has used his expertise on many projects. I would recommend his studio who is trying to do recording on a reasonable budget. Gene is the best!
I did not hire them for the event, chose other musician but they were very professional.
When I first phone interviewed Allie she seemed very knowledgeable, professional, and structured in her approach... everything I was looking for for my 14 year old daughter who is looking to discover the limits of her vocal talents. My expectations have been wildly exceeded. Not only is Allie an amazing vocalist and musician, she is one of the nicest people I've had the pleasure of meeting. Most importantly, (and I mean this to resonate with anyone who has a teenage daughter), Allie is a wonderful role model... my daughter looks forward to every minute she spends with Allie, and works hard every day on the exercises Allie prescribes. Can't say enough about Allie, best money I've ever spent.
If you are seeking guitar lessons take this into account: You're going to learn the chords and strum patterns regardless of who teaches you. The trick is finding someone who is passionate about music and teaching it to others. Outstanding is not a word I sling around haphazardly, but Dave has earned it. Dave is very passionate about his music, is a very talented musician and he sincerely enjoys passing along his knowledge to others. If you chose Dave as your instructor, you will not be disappointed in any way. His price is a great value.
Amazingly passionate musician! Love her energy, enthusiasm, and patience. My 7 year old is really enjoying her lessons :)
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!
David is the consummate professional in addition to being an amazingly skilled musician. It was a joy and relief to know the music was in his hands. I am still hearing raves about his performance.
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.
Jacie was a pleasure to work with, even with the little information I gave her. She was patient with me and even suggested songs that we could play for the ceremony. She contacted me throught the month or two leading up to the wedding to make sure everything was alright and to make sure we were on the same page. Jacie played before the wedding (background) and then throughout the ceremony. I could not have been happier with how things turned out. I will definitely be suggesting her for any wedding or event that needs a live musician.
Our daughter loves taking piano lessons from Tami. We have found her to be a wonderful teacher, providing a solid foundation in all areas of musicianship. She has high expectations for her students, but always teaches with a warmth that makes our 8 year old love going to her lessons. As a professional musician who teaches private music lessons myself, I cannot recommend her highly enough!
As an adult learner I was nervous to get back into piano but Sarah put my mind at ease right away. I have never had a teacher be so attentive to my personal learning style, skills and interests. From the beginning she used several techniques to help me determine my goals, current skills and then was clear about how we can work together to meet those goals. She has helped me stay accountable to my goals in a kind and encouraging way and uses many different teaching styles to help the information stick. I would highly recommend Sarah for all types of learners, as she is a versatile, fun, creative, and dynamic teacher. Additionally, she is an amazing musician and has a thorough knowledge of music theory and technique. I feel thankful to be working with such a skilled musician who is able to make you feel accomplished/successful regardless of the skill level you begin with.
I am a classically trained musician and play several instruments. When my son asked to take saxophone lessons, I went about screening several potential instructors. I sat in on Chris's first lesson with my son and was delighted to see the innovative and clearly fun techniques he uses to help his students understand how the saxophone works and how to play it. I was completely enthralled and realized that if he had been my instructor, I would have truly enjoyed that experience and would have practiced more. My son is very happy with Chris and expects to be taking lessons for some time with him. I highly, highly recommend Chris Ruiz!
Mark is one of the best musicians and teachers I have had the pleasure of working with. Not only does he have vast experience with teaching and playing multiple different instruments, he knows how to effectively teach anyone at any age or level and can quickly adapt to any student's needs. He will go out of his way to give you the best lessons possible with an upbeat and positive attitude. He is always on time, professional, flexible and punctual. He cares greatly about his students and seeing them excel. Not only a great player, Mark is a very experienced and skilled teacher that I highly recommend!
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.
Michael was excellent for our Grand Opening Event! He was professional and a great musician. I would highly recommend him and we would use him again for another event. Thanks again Michael for helping to make our event great!
she is very professional and a good musician as well as a good teacher
Eric taught my son for 2 years. He brought him from square one beginner to recently awarded "Best Musician" in th school band. Thanks, Eric! Highly recommended.
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!!!
