Nick's guy Ron was great! They worked with our budget and really got the crowd going. I would definitely hire him again. He had any song we wanted! Thanks guys.
Your jazz band was even better than what we were hoping for! It added just the touch we wanted - and such a fun group! Thank you! Can't wait to hear you again.
I took piano lessons from Gary for years and his program is fantastic. I learned to play the piano through songs that I loved, which made me want to continue with lessons as a kid. I am in college now and I still play the piano. Also, his rockonamerica program was a wonderful experience. I got to play rock music in a band with other kids my age. It was way cooler than any piano recital. I would definitely recommend taking music lessons with Gary; his lessons were a lot of fun and years later I still retain what I learned.
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.
My husband James and I had the privilege of having Spencer and Sequoia perform at our wedding at a winery in Virginia this summer. It would be a huge understatement to say we were SO pleased with how everything went!!! Spencer and Sequoia were amazingly professional and joyful to work with and super gracious with everything. It was the first time I had worked with a band of any kind so from the second we signed a contract, they were extremely responsive of our needs and questions, provided a very lengthy and diverse song list and even said they would be willing to learn song requests for a nominal fee. Because they're based out of New York, they had to make the long drive the morning of and were totally on board to work with our tomeline and the venue set up. They were also super self sufficient so we didn't have to worry about providing them equipment as they assured us they had everything they needed and required little set up time which proved to be true. We had them perform during our ceremony, cocktail hour AND reception but they did it like champs and our guests could not stop raving about how great they sounded! Not only were they just downright talented, they were a pleasure to have around as well. At one point, my nephew who sung a song for us was experiencing technical difficulties with his sound system so Spencer right away let him use his, which was a total lifesaver. Bottom line- customer service is beyond amazing with this lovely husband wife pair and we are so happy and grateful we could have them be a part of our special day. THANK YOU Spencer & Sequoia!
I can not say enough good things about this band! They were the absolute best! They helped me pull off the best surprise, the gift of music, for a special friend! Everyone at the party was raving not only about the sound (which totally rocked!!!!) but the professionalism, personality and overall vibe from them. If you want them for anytime in July in the next upcoming years you better grab them up because all my friends intend too!!
We had a low turn out due to the weather, but the music made it all better! We absolutely made the best decision choosing this band! They are professional, full of personality and extremely talented! The first of many events to come!
I hired Bassoon in the Wild Band for my wedding. The music was great especially the bassoon playing in the background, it is definitely one of a kind. Highly recommended
Our son has been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for several years. Out of all the teachers our son has had, Jonathan is far and away his favorite. Lessons mix technique, theory, scales, improvisation and songs; genres include classical, jazz, rock, pop and more. Jonathan can play anything and more than that, can teach anything! Jonathan respects his students and teaches to their abilitylessons are fun and fast moving, yet demanding. For more advanced students, Jonathans performance background is a bonus--he has helped our son prepare for concerts at Madison Square Garden and The Bitter End. Jonathan has been with us every step of the way and we will no doubt be with him every step of our sons musical career. I would whole-heartedly recommend Jonathan to students of all levels." Thank you so much Jonathan!!!
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!!
I had started getting into Latin music a little over a year ago when I met first met Nick Herman. Originally, I tried to learn to play Latin percussion (congas, bongos, timbales etc.) from books and instructional videos. I also tried lessons with a few different musicians. I was at it for months, however, I found my progress to be very slow. Eventually, I confronted Nick about lessons. After only 5 lessons, my bongo playing had improved exponentially! I would play my bongos with other musicians in the park and after one or two songs, many people would compliment me on my playing. One night I played a duet with a guitarist who would compliment me on my playing after every song. Later, I came to find out he was the leader of a salsa band who frequently performed around the city! Shortly after that I made Nick my official trainer on the bongos and cowbell! Nick Herman also leads his own band. I think anyone who is serious about learning Latin percussion would benefit greatly by having Nick as an instructor. I wish I had began lessons with him sooner!
Mark Dover was my son Jordan's first clarinet teacher; they worked together for about two and a half years when Jordan was in middle school. (We would happily have continued with Mark if he had not moved out of town to attend graduate school.) Mark did a fabulous job. He made the lessons fun for Jordan, and he always kept me informed about Jordan's progress. I occasionally sat in on lessons and noticed that Mark was always positive and encouraging but nevertheless held Jordan to high standards. I enjoyed seeing their rapport. What I didn't realize until later (not being a musician myself) was that Jordan was getting a very solid introduction to the fundamentals of the clarinet. Those first years with Mark positioned him to succeed in a very well-regarded and competitive high school music program. By the end of his senior year, Jordan was first chair in both his high school's Symphony Band and the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association's All-State Band (of which he was a five-time member). He was also offered music scholarships at several different colleges. So yes, Mark is a great clarinet teacher. He is also a good, kind person. Two years after Mark moved away, we had a devastating death in the family. I will always be grateful that Mark came to visit Jordan to offer his condolences--and that he brought his clarinet! Nothing could have been more comforting than hearing the two of playing together again. My review in a nutshell: Mark's an outstanding clarinetist, a dedicated teacher, and an all-around good guy. I would hire him again in a second.
Thank you Kenneth & The Staxxx Experience for keeping our guests on the floor all night. You guys were wonderful. The food and the band were both a big hit. We recommend you to anyone that needs a great band, dj, & strings.
This was a fantastic seven member band that had our guests dancing!!! This was an event held at the Crest Hollow for 300 guests. I heard great comments all evening from the guests. We will hire this band again.
Helene was able to help me break through a huge mental block that prevented me from learning how to play the piano. I now know how to practice and enjoy learning and playing new songs. You will be very pleased with her.
Here at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts, I've had a number of opportunities to work with Ms. Kelly as a solo act and with her bands, in all of our different venues. Always professional, on time and a pleasure to work with! And musically outstanding as well!
I've seen the Pleasers perform several times in the last year after hearing rave reviews from my friends about this awesome dance band, and what can I say, they were so right! These guys have such a soulful feel-good vibe and they really get the crowd moving all the while looking super fly and throw-back. My boyfriend and I live in Hudson but we made a special trip down to dance all night at their Valentines show at BSP in Kingston, it was our sweetest Vday so far. I only wish they'd play more In Hudson!! Aaaaand get me some CD's ;) Otherwise we were thoroughly Pleased!!!
