Tim is a wonderful guitar teacher. He works with my son at his own pace and it has been a joy to watch his confidence and skills grow with every lesson. He recently became a member of his school's jazz band and has deeply appreciated Tim's support and encouragement.
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 hired musicians from EKM to sing at my wedding ceremony and was absolutely delighted that they were also able to bring a string quartet to my cocktail hour and play for my reception. It saved me the hassle of hiring three acts and they did all of it for a very fair price. They also kept in contact with me and invited me to meet their performers before the ceremony so I would be completely at ease. They were fun and personable and I would work with them again.
He seems really nice so I hires him
I hired Golden Scroll Soloists for a corporate event and they were AMAZING! They had a huge selection of music which was all fantastic and everyone I spoke to within their group was so professional! My guests loved it! I'm hiring them again to play at my upcoming wedding and I can't wait!
He provided private alto sax lessons to my daughter for 7 years. She is an exceptional musician, and he played a very significant role.
I have studied with Barbara for many years, and she has brought out things in my voice that I never dreamed were there. She is an absolute genius on detecting and diagnosing vocal problems. I call her "Dr. Billings" because she can detect signs of an oncoming cold in my voice even before I am aware of it. She is patient, pleasant, and a joy to work with. She teaches students of all ages, and is really great at helping them find the music that interests them - no snobbery here!
Gil was the DJ for our wedding and he did an amazing job! Very professional, followed our musical preferences and got everyone into party mode! So many of my guests commented on how great of a job he did as well! I would hire Gil again in a heartbeat!
Maia played at my private party and it was a huge hit! Would definitely hire her again!
She makes you feel like you can let your guard down and helps improve your voice . She was able to bring out a huge difference in a matter of 4 sessions
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!
Kathy did a great job! Food was a big hit and I didn't have to lift a finger
Kristin has been my voice teacher for a few months now, and it's been amazing! She was able to help me with my vocal breaks and prepare me for my college auditions. She trained me in making a classical sound for that, and now we are working in musical theatre. She's really great to work with and will teach you everything you need to know about how to have a pretty and technically sound voice! A fantastic mentor and a great vocal coach!
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.
Frantic City is a high energy Rock Trio or Quartet playing popular songs from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's to today's current hits. We can also provide DJ services in between the live music for continuous music for the duration of the event at no extra charge. We can even provide full DJ sets of the music that you select as part of the performance so you get a band and a DJ in the same package for your event. The band has 2 configurations one is a 3 piece and the other is a 4 piece band. Both bands sound fantastic and are extremely accomplished. Some venues prefer a band that fits in a smaller area that is where the 3 piece band is preferred. If there is a genre or artist that you do not see in our song list we will either learn it or DJ that selection for your event. Need Jazz, Hip hop, Classical? You want it you get it Frantic City works for you. Frantic City plays a wide variety of popular songs whether the crowd wants to dance, sing along or rock out Frantic City will provide the experience. The band features two and three part harmonies; our full sound is often compared with much larger bands. Please read our past customer feedback to see that every one of our customers has been extremely pleased with the service Frantic City provided for their special event. We have been together as a band for over 15 years and never cancelled a booking and have never received negative feedback from our customers. Our musical skills have been the rave of over 250 Parties, Weddings and Private events since 2002.
