A friend of mine referred me to Freedom Music Academy because I wanted to learn to sing and play piano at the same time and I didn't know where to start! I did my research and was so impressed by the teacher Mr. Wicks that I had to schedule my first lesson. When I did, I was blown away by what I was taught and how my voice sounded even after one lesson that I decided to go full blast and learn BOTH piano and voice. After some lessons and much help and direction from both Yohance and Angela, I am now a Tampa Bay "star". I do shows every week thanks to Angela putting together my band and booking us at great places, I have gotten 1st place in multiple competitions and just this month auditioned for the final season of American Idol and got through the first 3 rounds! I owe this all to Mr. Wicks for helping my real voice unleash! I had no idea I had piano talent as I do and I am forever grateful. Thank you both for pointing me in the right direction and helping my dreams come true. I love Freedom Music Academy. Highly Recommend to EVERYONE!

Steve played for my daughters first birthday. The live music added so much to our party. Everyone loved it. It was the perfect vibe. We would definitely use him again and my neighbors and family wanted his information to book him too!

Please read this long review: Forget the DJ- these guys are thecreal deal! As a musician myself, I’m hard to impress but Vikki & Bill are Top Professionals whose talent and energy will bring your event to life. Nothing will ruin a party faster than bad music, these guys made our night spectacular. Vikki has a unique vocal abilty to sound just like the artist, and Bill truely sings that guitar. Our guests were couldn’t stop taling about it and the venue manager wants to hire them for his future events. Thanks guys, you made the night.

She is very responsive to texts and arrived at the venue very early to set up. Even among all the chaos she managed to play the right songs at all the right times and played them beautifully. My brother really enjoyed the sound of the live violin at his wedding. It wouldn't have been complete without her! This was a very last minute booking due to another violinist backing out on me. I booked two days before the wedding and it felt as if she knew exactly what to do nonetheless. Would definitely recommend.

    Tropigroove performed for my 40th wedding anniversary on May 28th, 2016. While we were eating, the band played lots of beautiful slows, kind of jazzy songs from their deep repertoire. After the speeches were over, the band took my guess back to the 70s playing some of the popular songs of that decade. The saxophonist leaves you with the sound to want to hear again, the young keyboard player plays with the crowd, he knows his craft. I recommend that you hire Tropigroove for your next occasion, whether you need the band for a cocktail or a dance party you'll get your money's worth. Jerry & Michelle

    I met Lars-Erik Robinson at an event in the fall of 2010. We were neighboring vendors for a full day, and had a chance to engage in conversation while I observed him entertaining and drawing caricatures of a wide range of people and their pets. We found a lot of common ground during our first meeting, and intended to collaborate and remain close through social media and in-person. Although our two careers keep us very busy, we finally collaborated on a major project, July 2011 when I assisted Lars with his new LarsERArts logo and his LarsERArts.com website. It was a true synergistic effort as Lars and I both had a lot to offer, and he is open to communication and the ideas of others. Lars definitely was able to present the goals of the project, and had enough brilliant artwork to really make the site amazing. He was very appreciative of my assistance and is a courteous and perfect compliment to me and my way of working. I have seen Lars grow as an artist with each quick sketch, mural, or extended illustration. As a person involved in the arts my entire life, with a BA in Fine Arts and history of working with professional artists - I have never seen the ability that this man has. His sense of awareness and technique has no limit. Many others have technique, and can draw/paint - but Lars has the best of both worlds - he can SEE. Lars' observation of faces and personality is legendary and thoroughly engaging to see live. I know that I met Lars on the cusp of National recognition and an amazing career. Every element is right about this man. He's on the right track, making calculated moves and working with great business sense and amazing talent. It is my desire that this recommendation will reach the National or international community who will view his portfolio and bring his artwork to a larger audience. His dedication to his craft and sacrifices of sleep, serenity, and an easy lifestyle are observable and commendable. I am so happy to have Lars as a friend, client, and business collaborator - as I plan to involve him in my own design projects. He is a great person who really shines in one-on one interaction, and with a large crowd. I highly recommend any interaction with Lars - whether it be a twitter or social media friendship, a studio portrait, art lessons, hiring him to draw caricatures at your next business or social event, a mural in your restaurant, or just a quick meeting and sketch at Pier 60 in Clearwater or the Pier in St. Petersburg, FL. Lars is great at updating his @LarsERArts.com twitter account and calendar at http://www.LareERArts.com - so you can find him in Tampa Bay and watch his brand of ArtTainment. Once you meet Lars, you will see that his talent and spirit are unmatched, and that his love for family, friends, and his other interests have true passion and sincerity.

    Wright Still is one of the most talented musicians that I have had the pleasure of working with. He is professional, dependable, courteous and loves what he does. I had the pleasure of working with Wright for several months while I was in Florida and I would not trade that experience for anything. I believe that any production would benefit greatly from Wright being a part of it.

    A great band getting on their feet. Their appearance for our support center was the highlight of the year for the girls. Joe is a great entertainer and his band are extremely talented. Very easy to book and to work with. 10/10, we will definitely hire Proxy again!

      With equal ease this jazz group can crank out hot and sassy numbers as well as smooth mellow vocals by the indomitable Katt Heffner. I've watched this group play concerts at the Ringling Museum bayfront and intimate clubs in Sarasota. They always seem to be able to surprise me.

      Robert Plates is one of the finest guitarists I've heard. As I'm not a musician myself, I cannot knowledgeably address his expertise, but as a music lover, I most certainly can avouch for the listening pleasure that Rob brings when he is playing. His exuberance and obvious pleasure when he is performing is infectious and forces you to listen to his fine mastery of his instrument. In a large group, clearly his contribution to the total sound of the ensemble is significant. He has a talent which is heartfelt. I have used Rob for my private parties and have been following his music career. Don't miss any opportunity you have to hear Rob play whether it's solo, jamming or with a noted band.

        I really don't want to play at your event. Not interested at all. > A lifetime as a musician with a penchant for avoiding "real work", the slow spiral downward started at the tender age of 13 in Salem/Portland, Ore., where he played with numerous bands. He opened for The Shangri-Las, Beau Brummels and War, before he detoured off into a solo one-man band project opening for Thomas Dolby and Bruce Hornsby. He also performed on ads for Nike, etc. Still, survival dictated new strategies as he again changed into a solo pianist playing in hotels and 12 years in the cruise industry. He quit just about the time they stopped hiring him. Through out all of it, he kept a private life of composing and recording. "It's the most fun I can think of having in a day," he says. It is no longer a question of achieving success. I'm compelled to do it." See the Videos. Attilio 777 Subscribe, maybe. Share, maybe.
