Burst Flames provided great customer service and accommodation. Would recommend for a party as DJ Peter knows how to keep a party going!
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.
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 !
Joanna is teaching my 6 year old to play the Violin, she makes the lessons very fun and my daughter is really enjoying her time with Joanna.
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.
Jerry was really easy to work with and extremely accommodating when it came to music selections. This band helped make our birthday celebration a real success. The musicians are extremely talented and the two vocalists were real professionals. They interacted with our group and kept everyone on the dance floor. We had a mix of ages, and their music addressed everyone in our group. I can't say enough about this band and I highly recommend them for whatever party you're planning. They will not disappoint!
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!
AWESOME!! Great mix of classics and new...performed GREAT! Can't help but love it!
We hired Val for my daughters 1st birthday party. She's just wonderful and we love her work so much. In the past I regret hirring other lower-priced face painters who didn't know how to paint well and worst of all they do not know how to interact with the kids. For me, it's very important to keep in mind how a face painter relates to the children. She's friendly, funny, clever, professional to work with, fast and incredibly talented. We love our experience with her and everyone else at the party did too. She's amazing and we love her very much. ?
Tom was perfect for our professional networking cocktail party. Tom was prompt and played straight through the two hours. His guitar playing is excellent and his music is unique. Definitely will hire Tom again.
Diego Salcedo along with his two brothers and sister performed at two of my very own public events back in 2012 with 600 attendees and in 2013 a community event. Their classic and eclectic performances were very popular with the crowds... so much they want them to come every year! I highly recommend them, they are a delight to know and extremely talented.
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!
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.
Great guys and great music. Highly recommended.
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.

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.
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!
