Bill is an amazing coach and person. He uses all his life experience as well as his profound vocal skill and experience to enhance the process. His style is much different than mine (he is a world class opera singer, and I'm more of a raspy "rock" guy), but he addresses those differences head-on and we make progress where we can and it's fun and beneficial all at the same time. I've always been a bit skeptical of voice coaching, thinking you either have the "pipes" or you don't, but Bill shares technique and perspective that anyone who uses their voice extensively can be helped by. Cheers to Bill!
From the minute I began discussing what I wanted with Michael, I knew he was the perfect guy for our party. He was very communicative, accommodating and even learned new songs that we wanted to hear! I could not be happier with our choice and plan to book Michael again for future events!!
I was a beginner guitarist when I met Pete. Six months later I was already playing through some of my favorite pop and classic rock songs. Pete's also taught me how to write my own songs, and we've also recorded on occasion. I'd have to say that songwriting is my favorite part about playing guitar, and I'm glad that I've got a few originals "under my belt" now.
Karl sang at and DJ'd our wedding and we are so glad we picked him! His unique style and personality made him a hit amongst our guests and having him definitely helped make our night more fun! We were so happy he was there with us on our day! Thanks again Karl!
Nick and his mate, Sam showed up on time....ready to work and continued to play three sets during a three hour period. This is my first time hiring a band for my personal party and I could not have worked with a better pair. I will definitely use him again. Well worth the money. Nice guys and open to my inexperienced suggestions. Lol! And I haven't even mention the quality of their music (jazz) was outstanding. They were the hit and highlight of the party.
I enthusiastically support the recommendation of Nicole Auriemma for employment as an entertainer (guitarist and vocalist) in the Chicago area. I have known Nicole Auriemma for the past year and have employed her numerous times to provide musical entertainment during our summer villa events. Nicole always showed up on time and entertained our guests on a very professional level. Nicole is a pleasure to work with and always brings a smile and positive attitude whenever she plays guitar. It is very apparent that she enjoys performing for audiences in any type of environment." Sincere and best regards, Steven T. Samson
Vicki was wonderful. We hired her for our ceremony Music and loved it. Thanks Vicki. If you want someone who knows what they are doing, Hire Vicki. :)
Kathryn was exactly what I envisioned when I set out to find a jazz singer for my father in law's birthday party. Her voice is seriously gorgeous and she was very easy to work with. She was flexible with me throughout our time planning the gig and was able to accommodate all of my requests. While her song list is quite vast, there were a few special tunes she specifically learned for this event and they sounded fabulous. She found the perfect accompaniment in a very talented guitar player as well. Throughout the time Kathryn performed and for hours afterwards I received compliments from other guests for finding such a talented duo. The men and women alike were very impressed with the quality of music, song selections, appearance, and demeanor of both musicians. Everyone thought the music really added something special to the party. Most importantly, my father in law was absolutely amazed with what wound up being the perfect gift for him. He was very impressed and I was so happy to see his face when Kathryn sang one of the songs she especially learned for us. He'll never forget it. I'd hire Kathryn again in a heartbeat.
Artist collective is a very professional business that has the musician in their best interest. I personally have worked with them and it was so nice to have them take care of the "business" end, so I could concentrate on the creative end with my band. AC set us up with a photo/video shoot and it was a success! Highly recommended by us!!
I hired TLC to play my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Carlyn, the manager was a pleasure to work with. She was organized, professional and responsive. The day of the wedding it had been raining all day and though it was damp it had stopped by the time of the ceremony. The musicians didn't want to play because it was damp and they were nervous about their equipment so after some stressful discussions they set up in a covered gazebo near by. They played custom learned selections for the processional and recessional which meant a lot to my fiancee and I. Their talent was great and they added a lot to the atmosphere of the wedding. They played the cocktail hour in the tent. I would definitely work with Carlyn again in the future.
The EcoLimes are great musicians. They have a fun sound with lots of interesting mash-ups of popular songs. They were easy to book, showed up on time and took care of their own set-up and tear-down. They took longer breaks than agreed upon.
Jeremy and Olivia where a huge part of our wedding in October 2017. Jeremy was available to help out where ever we needed him to be and was very professional. Olivia performed live music for our first dance, father/daughter, and mother/son dances. I was able to pick out the songs I wished to have played. Olivia made each song her own and it made the moments so much more memorable. Jeremy and Olivia both went above and beyond making sure our big day went as planned. We are very happy with their quality of work and professionalism.
Ryan did a great job with our elementary school dance. He solicited requests from me and played them. He also played music beyond the contract time. We’ll done, Ryan.
I would hire him again. Great guy!
Dear Mike and Dave, Thank you both so much for a wonderful evening of entertainment. As the event planner for our company it is always hard to know what type of entertainment will work with our large and diverse group needless to say you guys knocked it out of the park. First with the Jazz music during our social and dinner, then with the dueling pianos after dinner. I love how you worked the crowd and got everyone involved the best was the little cow bell competition you started between both of our presidents! It is always a good time when you can see top executives of a company let loose and have fun. :) Everyone had such a blast, I will definitely keep you guys at the top of my list for next time.
