JT was great for our low key wedding reception at the Epicurean hotel in Tampa, Fl. He has some real talent and we're glad he shared this moment with us. He performed a special song for my husband and I, which was amazing given the short amount of time he had to prepare it. We hope to hire him again for any other events we host! The Pros: We booked at the last minute and he was able to make himself available for our wedding reception We were working on a low budget and he was able to work with us He learned and performed a song that originally was not in his repertoire He brought all of his material He was reliable, arrived on time. No need to check on him. He's got a great voice and real talent! He performed AND had any other songs you could request available to play! The less amazing but this good Some of our guest sitted near the speakers mentioned they were set up a little louder than would have been necessary. It's true it was loud, but everybody had a ton of fun anyways! We could always hear more of the artist's singing. I'm not blaming him though we heard him a lot, and everybody needs some break from singing! We were extremely busy with family we had not seen in a long time, and a harsh reminder to leave a review from JT was pretty unwelcomed.
The crowd was especially pleased with the band and several even asked where they could get in touch with them to hire them for other events.
Jake was prompt, friendly, flexible and is an awesome musician! He played all the different bands that we asked for! We look forward to the next time we hire him in a few weeks!!
I have seen the Steve Hogie band play in several different venues and they always leave the crowd wanting more. This band has a very extensive song selection which includes some surprising and fun acoustic arrangements for songs that typically aren't done in that style, such as Journey's "Separate Ways." It is very clear that they have become a very tight unit in their time together and they always leave the crowd wanting more.
My husband is the owner of the Estate on the Halifax and we are so grateful we found Billy to play saxophone from the Sweet Talkers! He truly was a big part of making our wedding a fairy tale in the histotical chapel. The only wedding detail I found limited in my area was a musician for my ceremony. I asked several coordinators and call the music directors at colleges. My choices were not as I imagined. Then a friend mentioned Billy Meether weeks prior to my wedding date. Billy responded immediately and called me. He had other performances but he was able to make some changes to travel to the venue and play for my ceremony. He is extremely professional and very warm. I was impressed by his flexibility. Other options couldn't do or didn't seem eagerly willing to do what I hoped for with the songs. Billy approached every request with ability and enthusiasm. He was reflective listener. Musicians often have their own ideas but Billy wanted to learn about what I wanted and was able to deliver every request. A few days prior he reviewed what I had requested and even asked if I needed or wanted anything else. Even my last minute request for a sound track with lyrics for the family processional which I was told was not possible by others...he said no problem and it was done. He called my DJ to coordinate equipment needs. He showed up a good hour prior to ceremony. He also asked me what the groom and wedding party was wearing so that he wouldn't wear the same color and could compliment the attire! Billy looked so handsome and wonderful for the photos in front of the chapel in addition to playing the saxophone in a way that causes everyone to be moved to tears. When the double door opened to the chapel and I stood at the beginning of the aisle with my son, I heard Billy play our song "You and Me" by Lifehouse and I felt overwhelmed by the elegance and class he brought to the atmosphere. My first steps seeing my fiancée smile with tears and being serenaded by the perfect tempo and sultry saxophone is one of the most memorable moments of my life! I felt like a princess floating down the aisle to this music that sounded like it came down from the heavens. After the wedding Billy was willing to have photos done with the photographer which are amazing! He was so happy to be part of such a fairy wedding with a couple getting married at THEIR wedding venue with the family surrounding us who grew up on the most stunning property in Florida. The guests all commented that the saxophone was a beautiful addition. We were so blessed to have Billy bring superior quality and opalescently polished music the the ceremony and he look so good next to the alter. I felt like he cared about my wedding as much as if he was playing for a sister. I had booked a DJ and close friend for cocktail hour and the reception 8 months before learning about the Sweet Talkers but I would have hired them in a heart heartbeat and even let go of our deposit if we were not friends. I would highly recommend the Sweet Talkers and their musicians for any portion of the wedding. They will make your visions and dreams come true!
Hired them for an intimate party at my house. They were awesome! Had us on our feet dancing and the playlist was great for all guests 5 years old to 77. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Thanks guys for making my husbands 50th so memorable!
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.
I had a one-time lesson with Michelle the day before a performance with a band. I don't have much of a music background, but Michelle was able to explain things clearly with a little bit of music theory which I appreciated. She was able to help me transpose two songs to a different key. The performance went well, and I wouldn't have been able to do as well without her help. She was super flexible with me as she had never had a request like this before. I highly recommend her.
I had the opportunity to have The Flashbacks play at my holiday party and they were great! Rock and Roll from the 50s and 60s like I remember. The band members were knowledgeable about the songs, the back stories and created nostalgia from all my guests, both young and old. Every song was a toe-tapper.
We had a surprise party for my wife Jan 10th, 2014 and Notist played for us. They were absolutely fantastic. Great group, fun, interactive with the audience, and played great dance music from the 70s and 80s. We had a wide age range of attendees and everyone enjoyed the music. I have had 10-12 people who attended the party comment how great the band was and several asked how I found them. Tony Dema, as well as all the members, were very professional, on time, and worked with the venue seamlessly. Thank you all so much for making this party so memorable. Sincerely, Mike Peak Safety Harbor, FL
Beatrice Roberts and her band were hired after hearing them at the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa. They blew us away that we had to have them for my company's corporate gala. Sweet Bea and the Boys went above and beyond and were integral to the success of the event. Hope to book you again soon, Patricia
I am the owner of DG Rockers Guitar and Music School, a private music school located in Brooklyn, NY. Mr. Valentín has served as music instructor as well as music director for over 2 years at my school. Based on my experience, I believe his dedication, passion, knowledge, and innovation have proved to make him an amazing teacher. I first met Francisco on October of the year 2013 when he was interviewing for the position of piano instructor at my school and I remember right away knowing that he would be a great fit. His humility and passion towards serving others was evident right away. Francisco has an incredible gift of being able to connect with young people through music. Over the years I saw Francisco take initiative and build up the music program, composing songs mindfully catered to his students’ musical development, creating his own music learning sheets, inventing comparisons and games to help his students better understand musical concepts, and even simplifying more advanced musical exercises such as the Hanon techniques so that his students could begin strengthening their coordination and technique right from the beginning. I also witnessed him bringing an idea we brainstormed together to life by creating fun and effective rock band classes and putting together concerts with me to showcase our students’ achievements. His upbeat, positive, and kind demeanor was always a great source of inspiration for our students, their parents, and his peers. The passion with which he taught each class cultivated a love for music in every student’s heart that I believe has left a lasting imprint. We always believed in building a sense of community with our students and their parents. This was something that Mr. Valentín was very passionate about, to the extent that he became a mentor and positive role model to our students, catching up with them every class, advising them positively on all matters musical and non-musical, and even bringing them Christmas gifts. He also became a great friend to our family of parents, always treating them with respect, kindness, and talking with them after classes. I believe Mr. Valentín would be a tremendous teacher for anyone and has my utmost recommendation.
