Gary is one of the most talented people I have ever met!! His musical talent and years of experience make working with him very special. I am one of his "older" students and I am thrilled to be a part of one of his bands. Gary provides all students the chance to perform many times during the year which enhances the learning experience. The performances also create a strong and supportive bond among students and family. Because Gary is skilled at so many different instruments and voice, there is truly something for everyone. And, he has a good sense of humor :)

Pat did a wonderful job. He was very good and played the music we wanted. He also took requests. He interacted with the people at my party. He was well dressed and is a very nice man. He is easy to work with when planning your party. His music was just the right loudness for the size of the room. If I ever need a DJ I would hire him again. I would also recommend him to my family and friends. His prices are very reasonable. He's great at what he does.

Chris Hamel is an amazing DJ, Musician and Lighting Technician. Two years ago I founded Affordable Affairs, a network group of wedding and event vendors, and aggressively pursued Chris to join us as our DJ. I have never known anyone more professional in his field. He is just a class act through and through and I speak for all my partners in Affordable Affairs when I say he is as good as it gets! We hire him, and will continue to hire him, as a DJ, Musician and Lighting Technician as often as he can work with us!

Jonathan and his and band played at my birthday party.Omg, it was beautiful. My guests were wondering where I had heard them play and could not believe I just discovered them online. We had the dinner hour under such ambience, it felt like we were in an expensive lounge! If I need a band, I will definitely be calling Jonathan again!!! *Ps. I had a last minute request for an additional song and they made it happen!!

Mary is warm, smart and professional. She was very quick to respond to questions I had about booking her band for my wedding. At the event, they sounded great and were so much fun to watch! I can't say enough about The O-Tones. My friend Dana booked them after seeing them at my wedding and I think it's safe to say she had the same experience.

I have worked with Elana in a full band environment for 5 years and also as a recording partner on her original material. During this time I have found her to be very creative in her ability to put her own twist on material. She has a wonderful personality that shines through to her audience during her performances. She engages people with a marvelous sense of humor. Finally, she is an absolutely superb vocalist, with a very rich, sultry tone to her voice. I whole heartedly recommend her.

We were invited to a wedding reception about a year ago and she was there as a solo artist doing easy listening backround music then when it came time for dancing she lit the room up with a great variety of 50's -current music so we went on line to look her up for an anniversary party we were planning and she was already booked for that night so were we lucky to push it back to the following Saturday when see was avail. This woman really knows how to entertain a crowd and is very easy on the eyes too!! After talking with her she also told us she tours with a 12 pc. horn band all over the country, I talked her into giving me their latest CD its great. If I were interested in vocal lessons I would definitely call her.

Rorie was amazing from the get-go!! She was so easy to reach whenever I needed her and was so helpful through our whole process. I appreciated all of her help and made it exciting for me to choose the music for the ceremony and cocktail hour. I was never worried once that she wouldn't show up (one of my biggest fears with all vendors), and I was never worried she wouldn't do the music exactly to my liking. I'm so beyond grateful and ecstatic I went with her! Thank you Rorie for everything, you are amazing with a beautiful voice.. even the flower girl had to stop in the middle of the isle to watch you :)

I hired the New London Big Band for my weekly live Jazz event in Hartford, CT. Not only were they very professional, they played an excellent show. It was so great that one of my recurring customers told me it was the best time they have ever had at the event, and they have been a recurring customer of mine for more than 6 years. I would highly recommend the New London Big Band to anyone that is looking for a great live Jazz act for any occasion.

Lyghtin Up and their catalog of classic rock songs are unmatched by any tribute band out there. The singer had me believing I was listening to the actual band! Would hire again and definitely recommend for your musical gatherings.
