Ray was fantastic the crowd enjoyed it all, once he met everyone he called us by name, played the songs we wanted, and even did musical chairs with the kids. I wouldn't hesitate to pass him on to other people
Tom is the sickest guitar player ever. Honestly, he shreds harder than anyone I've ever seen pick up the axe. Not only does he shred, he knows how to teach the ol' 6 string in amazing ways too. He is a great guy to hang out with, so taking guitar lessons is having fun. I could elaborate more, but it could be said so easily. Take lessons from Tom. He's the best.
Vicki performed on what turned out to be one of the most memorable days of my entire life. I asked her to play inside of the lobby of a helicopter concierge tour building while I proposed to my girlfriend on our Anniversary after our flight tour landed. Working with her was a true pleasure because she was flexible and more than willing to accommodate my requests. I compared pricing from multiple other violin players and she was by far the most reasonable. Vicki quoted me a very fair price because I only needed her services for less than an hour due to the nature of the situation. I was going to get down on one knee as she played 3 songs that I custom chose from a list of song suggestions that she provided. I asked her to learn my girlfriend's favorite Ed Sheeran song and performed it perfectly. Unfortunately, our helicopter tour got cancelled 4 hours before take-off due to the unexpected heavy snowfall. I had no plan B at the time and decided to ask her if she could perform outside under the Bean(Cloud Gate) in Millennium Park. My request also included pushing the performance back two hours, while it was freezing cold and snowing out. Vicki was able to seamlessly coordinate with two of my fiancÃ©'s friends to take photos and video of the entire proposal while timing everything flawlessly. Vicki deserves high praise for her reliability and adaptability during a stressful situation for me. I was not expecting her to accommodate my tall request, but she delivered on every level. I was so impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail that I insisted on tipping her to match her original performance fee she quoted.(As a side note, she never asked for any additional money when I completely changed the plan to having her perform outside in bad weather.) There are very few people that would have been willing to accommodate my requests on such short notice. Vicki contributed to an amazing night and elevated the entire experience. My fiancÃ© and I will NEVER forget how perfect our engagement turned out and the selfless contribution that Vicki made to ensure that it was a success. I would recommend Violin by Vicki to anyone that wants to hire a talented, kind-hearted, professional that exceeds all expectations. Cheers!
Jerry Tiberi puts together jazz duos and trios for our various fundraising events. The groups are well chosen for the type of event and size of the venue. I get many unsolicited complements from our guests. Jerry's jazz groups have a tight and easy musical interplay that is smooth and interesting, appropriate and unobtrusive. They really put our guests at ease, and would class-up any kind of gathering, event, or special occasion. There is nothing like live music and we always call Jerry Tiberi first !
Brit was amazing! Hired her for a cello/violin duo for my wedding. She kept in contact throughout the process, was able to find all the songs I requested (some were pretty obscure), and she and Helen played beautifully. We received a ton of compliments on the music, and it was awesome to hear my favorites as a string duo.
We recently had a 50th birthday party for a dear friend who was first introduced to Suede & Susie at The Avenue (and loved them). The party was a hit and the duo performed beautifully! The birthday girl was brought to tears. I highly recommend them for your next in-home party!
Nick is so easy to work with. He played with a trio for our wedding reception. The music sounded was the perfect backdrop and Nick, Ryan, and Zac were extremely professional.
That band is awesome!!!!! We booked them for 1500 attendee event and boy did they bring it. The harmony was tight, the musicians were spot on and the crowd participation was perfect! They are our new band.
Betsy is the BEST violin teacher we've encountered! She works very well with my son and he's already improving. Betsy is funny and engaging to make violin enjoyable. I highly recommend Betsy!!!
Tri-l-co did a wonderful job at our ceremony and the music was beautiful. Everyone enjoyed the trio and Carlyn was very easy to work with and arrange all the music ! Thank you again for being part of our special day!
I’ve always been fascinated by the violin. The moment I could muster up enough courage to take classes, I was extremely dedicated, however, not knowing anything about instruments and being an absolute beginner in playing one, it was always a challenge to find a teacher who could match my excitement and interest. When I met Kal, I felt that he had a genuine desire, not just to teach me how to play the violin, but to help me understand music as a whole; to incorporate all musical notes into my life through our lessons. Taking up an instrument can be such an intimidating task, but it is not at all impossible! With Kal as my teacher, in just a few months, I found myself reading music, playing to rhythms, listening to notes and recognizing them (and playing solely by listening to notes!) - basically, I found myself learning music, wholly, something that no other teacher had ever managed to take me through. Thanks to Kal, I can pick up my violin, tune myself, and just…play. His love for music is palpable and quite easily transferable; his dedication is outstanding, and his help has been truly invaluable.
I hired Alex and his string quartet for a series of audio and video recording sessions, and my group was especially thrilled with Alex for his impassioned playing and the eager, positive attitude he brought to each session. His quality work did not miss a beat even when our sessions went over time, and that left us waiting for our next chance to collaborate with him. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for a highly skilled cellist with a lively approach to music making.
We couldn't have been happier with our decision to hire Paul and his trio for our wedding. My husband is a musician and I have worked with live music as a dancer many times, so we know quality when we encounter it. Planning our wedding from our of state was a challenge, and Paul was responsive and professional via email. He sent us music samples and was eager to learn specific songs for our ceremony. The day of our wedding the trio was early, well dressed, and ready to go without a hitch. They played for our outdoor ceremony and quickly reset on the patio for cocktail hour. I would recommend Paul to anyone looking for high quality, affordable musicians to enhance your event!
Great guys and great music. Highly recommended.
Chris Winters and his band agreed to perform at a party I had recently. Their perform was spectacular. Chris's repertoire is limitless. I have followed his music for about 10 years. I'm always amazed at the his virtuosity with blues, country, rock and pop. Never a dull moment with those strings when he's on stage. He shows up on time with his band and gives you all he's got.
Emily Ward has been an incredible orchestra teacher!!! Many students continued in orchestra because of her expertise and support! She has always been positive and encouraging to her students!
The Miles Simmons Trio provided the music for our building holiday party in downtown Chicago. The Trio played a mix of holiday songs, jazz and favorites. They were terrific! It was a great addition to our event and was enjoyed by all.
I am a performer/composer/arranger who can perform for any event you need. I can also transcribe, arrange and compose for you. I also provide lessons on violin and guitar.
Whether performing a Haydn quartet, movie score, or your favorite tunes, The Kobialka String Quartet is the cherry on top of your wedding or event!
Arkansas Dogjaw is an indie-progressive rock power trio from Urbana, Illinois. With hauntingly sweet guitar, aggressive bass, mouth-watering drumming, and powerful vocals, they bring a fresh sound and tangible groove. What makes this band unique and exciting is the diverse musical backgrounds of the members and the way that the genres are combined to create a new, big sound. "One of my old bands "Certifiable" played a show with these guys some time back at "Heartbreakers" on the Landing. They blew my mind that night with their level of musicianship and technical ability! They are flying the "integrity" flag high in a world of stagnant music." -- Joe Rich, St. Louis, MO Arkansas Dogjaw can play up to 90 minutes continuously, composed mainly of originals. Covers can be requested, and past covers have included songs from Tool, Modest Mouse, and Nirvana.
