Jack has been doing sound and DJ work for my band and other bands for many years. Pro gear and sound engineering. He deejays all our breaks and keeps the tunes, special last minute requests and fun going for our clients. Ive seen and heard him deejay complete events with great success and know he receives call backs. Good value for your budget!
Our son began lessons with Ryan 5 years ago,after becoming bored and stagnant with his previous teacher of 2 years.With a child that was very talented and serious at pursuing a possible music career,we really wanted to make sure he had the best teacher for him that pushed him and challenged him but at the same time did it in a way that would encourage him, not discourage him.Because our son was easily bored,we also needed a teacher that could teach many different styles or genres,knew theory and could teach sight reading and was able to move at whatever pace was needed to challenge our son.Ryan worked on rock,blues jazz and classical guitar,sight reading ear training, song writing skills, improvisation only to name a few,but above all taught him to work hard and never give up.He helped him prepare for a very challenging audition to get into a very competitive music college, Belmont University. Ryan made sure that when the audition came up, our son was ever so confident when his audition time came up and was totally prepared in every possible way.Through the years,our son developed a strong sense of trust and friendship that he has been able to use as he is in college as a sophomore.While in college,our son will periodically still rely on Ryan for his professional views on different challenges. He also looks forward to breaks and summers to get together with Ryan and play,learn and get advice.It was never about Ryan making his fee,but about making sure our son was pushed during every lesson to the best of his abilities.Even if it meant staying over a few minutes or calling during the week to check and make sure he was able to work at the music homework he had given and was not frustrated.We highly recommend Ryan Strickland. He is a very professional dedicated musician that loves his job and will go over and beyond for all of his students. We feel as parents that Ryan pushed our son to help him fulfill his utmost dreams and passion and realize there are no limits.
Steven, Hope this message gets to you as I would like to thank you for your performance at the Atlanta Jazz Festival 2010. Your band had a great set and I feel my trip up from Gainesville FL was worth the trip just to hear your band's version of Cassie's Theme by Grover Washington. If you have a recording of that please tell me how to get my hands on it. I am so glad I made it to the concert early. I feel that your band and Trombone Shorty were the highlights of the night and I am a Bass Player. Can't say it enough, you guys are an incredibly gifted Jazz Band. Great work on the saxes and please let me know the name of the bass player again. He worked the pocket well and every one of your band members played their role. Great groove and pocket, your entire set. If you guys ever play in Florida let me know, once again, an incredible set at the Jazz Festival! Kraig G.
Derek knows his students and tailors his lessons accordingly. He's not just a guitar instructor; he's more like a music life coach helping with technique, new habits, songwriting tips and band arrangement. It's a very open and laid back environment and you don't even realize what you are learning while it's happening. Very intuitive approach. I highly recommend a visit.
From Christie: When my son Joey decided sophomore year that he wanted to take up clarinet with the goal of joining marching band the next year, we knew he had alot of work to do! Mr. Derringer worked with Joey on short- and long-term goals, and provided excellent instruction and mentorship to get him there. Joey has made so much growth in the year he has been working with Mr. Derringer. He's ready to join the band! From Joey: Mr. Derringer is an excellent teacher. He knows what he's talking about and has a clear understanding of the clarinet. He is fun to talk to and makes it easy to understand the concepts we're working on.
We are very satisfied with Mr Gene, Guitar teacher, his methods of teaching, guiding is unique and different from my sons other guitar teacher from the past. My son likes his way of teaching.
These guys are incredible! Played at my reception and I couldn't get my wife off the dance floor. Haha. They took nearly every request thrown at them, very funky, and really engaged the crowd. 5/5 definitely would recommend!!!
This band was awesome. Everyone at the wedding raved about how fun the wedding was and how great the music was. The band was superb. We were very pleased. A very fun day fit all.
We had Deb Bowman & The Big Love Band performed at RiverPointe Event Venues grand opening event in October 2015 near Montgomery, and it was such a blast. They played a variety of favorite songs all night long from swing to Latin all the way to blues, dance songs and rock! The crowd was thrilled! The band professional, fun, and such a pleasure to work with. Worth every penny! I will hire them again and again. In fact, Deb is singing for my birthday party next week! Deb Bowman has several combinations of her bands, from a solo artist with accompanist to a huge party band with brass. I've heard them all at various events. Buy all you can afford! The bigger the band, the bigger and better the party. They are not only accomplished world class musicians, they are ENTERTAINERS! Big difference. You get Both with Deb Bowman. Your event or club with have a pulse rarely experienced with other bands. I have followed her performances since 2006. Book early for the holiday season or you will be disappointed. Deb is also well connected with an excellent marketing system that can promote your event to thousands of contacts if you wish.
Jules and the Gents were amazing. The added ambiance from the band made my outdoor event a great success, I plan to contact them in the future for other events.
The job was hiring a band to play at my Friend's Wedding. Mr. Kwame Paige was very professional. From the moment we booked him. He always made sure every step of the way we were on the same page. Such as staying in contact with me by phone or emails. He sent video footage of the band rehearsals. The Bride was very impressed with his professionalism. This young Man Strives for greatness. Even after the wedding he has invited us to many of his recitals and public performances. Each and everytime we attend not less than Greatness. We even seen him preform at his Chruch. And also has performed at the Bride's Chruch as a Saxophonist Soloists. If your looking for someone that takes pride in everything you promised to do when you book him. Kwame Paige is the one to book. To me as the day went along we felt him and the other gentlemen were more like family. They all were truly outstanding. There's no doubt if I need to book Mr. Paige in a band or a Saxophone Soloists again I know he's going to Deliver nothing shorter than Greatness.
Hiring this band was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They truly made the party happen for us! I assure you that you will not be be disappointed when Let It Rip provides your musical entertainment. These highly talented professionals can handle an audience ranging from from ages seven to seventy, tunes from yesterday and today, and any music genre you can name. Everybody said that I had the best retirement party they had ever attended, and even the kids said that they wanted to have a party like mine one day! If you want it done right for any special occasion, contact Let It Rip!
Hiring Greg Shearer and his band was one one of the best decisions my wife and I made in planning our wedding. Greg met with us before the big day to see if we had any special requests and to go over the schedule of events during the reception. It was nice to know that after hiring Mr. Shearer we didn't have to worry about audio or the entertainment. Thank you for making our wedding day the best it could be.
I am now a three time best selling author. I had a book singing party on july 30th 2016. When I tell you this band got down. I mean they were perfect. On time and very professional. I don't think I could have found a better band. I will hire this woman and her band a thousand time over again and I look forward to having them at my next book signing event. I love them. They are now my family. I would recommend them to any and everyone. So friendly and witty. Book them now. You will not regret it. My name is Author Mario Lattimore by the way
