Jon provided the music for the cocktail hour of our wedding on Sunday, September 18, 2016. We must start out by saying that, because the entire wedding was one big whirlwind, we did not have the pleasure of being able to hear a majority of Jon’s performance. However, we did hear through word of mouth that the guests really enjoyed the music that Jon provided. We communicated exclusively through e-mail. He was very kind and patient with us as we tried to figure out what types of music we wanted to play. Jon was able to send us a list of songs that he was well-versed in and that accommodated the genres we ultimately decided on (latin, jazz, bossa nova, R&B). This made our lives easier as it helped us to focus and eventually narrow our choices down to a small selection of songs. We finally got a chance to meet face to face at the wedding venue. He was very sweet and very formal (and he speaks Spanish too!). We did have a bit of confusion regarding whether or not Jon would use his own personal keyboard or the piano provided by the wedding venue but thankfully everything worked out in the end. Jon was VERY reasonably priced; however, he does not provide a contract (but because Jon is such a professional, this was not an issue at all). We would absolutely recommend Jon. And like we had mentioned to him at the venue, hopefully we have another opportunity to hire him so that we can listen to and enjoy his musical talents in its entirety. Thanks again Jon!

Matt is amazing!!! He really made my wedding music as elegant as can be! He even allowed me to pick 10 extra songs that I personally chose that he played live. I HIGHLY recommend him. He is very professional and extremely talented!

Bob is great! Patient and fun. We have worked with him for over a year and he even organized four 6-year-olds for a band for the school talent show in a very short time.

Matt performed at our wedding ceremony and it was the perfect addition. Churches typically allow only approved religious songs during the ceremony itself, however, Matt's guitar playing at the beginning and end of the ceremony was a great way to incorporate our own musical favorites and really personalize the experience for us and our guests. I had numerous guests comment on his guitar playing skills and how they enjoyed the live music and recognizable songs while they waited.

I have worked with "DJ Rush Events" on three different occasions; a Birthday Party for my son, a Bat Mitz'Vah for my daughter and a Christmas Party for my company. It has been a total pleasure working with Justin "DJ Rush"!!! Very energetic, highly professional and accommodating. Very knowledgeable in all kinds of music that he provides as well as using a great sounding equipment as well as lighting. To anyone who's planning a party, be it a wedding, anniversary, birthday or anything else for that matter, I would highy recommend Justin's "DJ Rush Events" company to bring joy and a great energy to any event. As the matter of fact, Justin will be doing our Halloween Party soon, so I will share my experience with you as well. Thank you Justin!

Laura Joy recently played at my wedding and was an absolute sensation. Not only did she play the wedding songs we requested (and very well I might add), but she played an array of appropriate wedding songs without the need of any cues form the bride or groom. My wife and I were honored that she played our wedding (you would be too) and would love to see her play again anytime, anywhere. Come to Japan!

I cannot express how AMAZING Kathryn and her band were at our wedding! It was the first thing our guests commented to me on: "Where did you find her?!" "She has an amazing voice!" Kathryn has a long repertoire list that is packed with songs of many genres. She also worked with us to incorporate any songs we wanted which weren't on the original list. She and her guitarist provided beautiful background music during our lunch and cocktails, and more danceable selections later on. Their music was such an important part of our event and I would hire her again in a second!

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.

Best guitar instructor ever! Matt helped me improve my skills enough to play in a great band, and we performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Matt helped me learn to count and feel the ups, downs and skips. Thanks, Matt!

Kathy sang at my California wedding in August 2014, during the ceremony and the reception. I discussed the songs I was considering with Kathy many times in the months leading up to our wedding and she listened to my ideas, giving guidance and suggestions for impactful songs. We ended up choosing an Adele song for the ceremony and a Beatles song for the reception. One of our guests told me after that he's only cried at two weddings: his and when Kathy sand Adele at ours. If I could give Kathy six stars, I would. Kathy is the epitome of professional. In a process filled with weirdly secretive costs (the minute you say wedding, costs increase exponentially) it was a huge relief to have someone up front, honest and fair with prices and expectations. If you are worried about having a meaningful music experience, hire Kathy. She listened to our desire for an emotional performance at the ceremony and a more 'fun song' at the reception and knocked it out of the park with "I'm So Tired" by the Beatles. I could go on about all the ways Kathy enhanced our wedding experience, but let me leave it at this: if you are even remotely considering live music at your wedding, you would be crazy not to contact Kathy.

Matt played for our daughter's wedding and we couldn't have been happier with the results. His acoustic guitar playing before the wedding ceremony set just the right tone and filled the church with beautiful music. Matt's playing gave a jumpstart to a truly glorious evening.

I am so pleased with Sid and Hala. We had them play for my mom's 80th birthday party last weekend. Beginning with my first correspondence with them up until they left the party, they were wonderful. I have never used Thumbtack before or even heard of Thumbtack so I didn't know what to expect. I put in the information to Thumbtack a few months ago looking for a live band for my mom's birthday party. I had no idea what a live band would cost and if there was anything available where I was looking to have the party. (The party was a good hour from any major city). So once I entered the information into the Thumbtack website, within maybe an hour or so Sid and Hala contacted me. They introduced themselves, informed me about the type of band they were (acoustic), type of music they played and told me costs in the first correspondence (quite reasonable I thought). We went back and forth several times with questions of mine and their answers and they always answered within an hour. Can you believe they were willing to drive 2 hours to my event! I couldn't believe it. No extra charge for drive time either! So we had a verbal/email commitment with them and the next week they emailed a contract that I signed and sent back to them. We emailed back and forth a couple of times over the following few months up until the event. The emails were mainly regarding song selection. They have a good sized list of songs they play on their website. I had two song requests that they didn't currently play but they were more than willing to learn for me. The day of the party they were right on time-1 pm sharp. They were professional and polite. They gave themselves an hour to set up and started right at 2 pm like we planned. They checked in with me prior to starting to ask about when they should play the songs they learned special for me. They asked if it was okay if they took a break in the middle. (Of course it was okay!) The quality of performance was 5 star and then some. Their voices are beautiful and work really well together. I had listened to several of their songs on you-tube prior and the internet quality of the music was not the greatest for some of the songs. Let me tell you that in person they are fabulous!! So much sound and talent from two people. My family threw in some song requests that they were not expecting and they accommodated beautifully. They could play the music and just looked up the words on their smart phones so they didn't make any mistakes. That was the only time they had to read lyrics. If you had not been looking at them you would have never known they were reading the music. I received compliment after compliment from our guests on how great the music was. I cannot recommend this acoustic band enough. You will not be disappointed. Well worth the money.

We attended our friends wedding who had The Band Sundance play and we immediately knew we wanted to book them for our own wedding. Our guests had a blast dancing to their songs. They even learned to play our first dance song which made it extra special. They are so much fun! They were very responsive throughout the process and easy to work with. I highly recommend them as a wedding band!

My family has hired Sipos & Young for a wedding reception and a celebration of life gathering. Rachel and Chris are fantastic musicians and their song catalogue is deep. They also asked on both occasions if there were any particular songs the family wanted to hear. They set the tone perfectly for each event as diverse as they were and really added something special.

I can't stress enough how much we loved working with Manny for our Wedding in October 24, 2014. From the moment we met, we knew he was someone we wanted to play at our ceremony. We didn't want traditional wedding, we wanted something different. We had music from the 80's and 90's that represented our taste, to contemporary music. I highly recommend using Manny, and I know the guests at my wedding does as well.

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!!

My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.
