I would not be the singer and artist I am today without the instruction and guidance I received from William Powers. His years of professional operatic experience and enthusiastic teaching style have given me both the tools and technique I need to compete in the extremely demanding field of opera, as well as the confidence to believe in my talents. His support and mentorship continue to shape me as an artist, and any student of voice would be fortunate to have William Powers as a teacher. I recommend him whole-heartedly and without hesitation!
Started taking lessons from Shaun about 6 weeks ago. So far i've learned a lot about the basics and going at the right speed. He gives assignments to do every week to help improve skills which is awesome. So far my experience has been awesome for someone that is completely new to a classical guitar. His style of teaching is easy to understand. In the end its up to the student to put in the practice to really get better at it.
Jerry and the trio were a perfect fit for our event. They provided excellent music and adjusted their volume to the room perfectly. I would highly recommend the trio to anyone looking for solid jazz musicians! Our cocktail party was a huge success and I know Jerry and the gang played a huge role in this. Thanks again guys!
Matt has been teaching my daughter piano for about 9 months now and we have really enjoyed him. He is patient and imaginative when engaging children to learn an instrument. My daughter has really learned a lot in a short amount of time and is enjoying the piano more and more. He is prompt and courteous. And a very talented musician. We always love it when he treats us to play something. So grateful that we found him.
All I can say is WOW. The Sundance Band made our wedding one of the most fun, memorable nights of our lives! The band played songs that got the young, old, and "I-don't-dance" people out on the dance floor all night. I was worried that there would be too many people outside on the veranda instead of on the dance floor, but this was never an issue. It was a pleasure working with Jim, the manager and emcee. The band played specific live songs we wanted for our Mother/Son and Father/Daughter dance. Also, last minute, they were able to play a blues song for our intros that made our wedding party intros fun and unique. It was seamless discussing the details with Jim up until the big day, and his calm demeanor really helped ease our worries. We are still getting rave reviews about the band weeks after the big day. Would highly recommend the band to anyone.
We highly recommend Vinnie Hines at Artist Collective (Chicago)! We have attended several performances by Vinnie Hines and liked him so much that he did a private show at one of our parties. He was fantastic with the attendees and the show was great! It's only perfect that he also does bookings for Artist Collective. We recently went to him with a special request for an artist with a specific skillset and Vinnie was right on it making things happen. Over the years we have used several outlets for talent and Vinnie Hines at Artist Collection (Chicago) is by far top notch and great to work with.
Fran can PLAY, he's got a degree in music, and he makes the lessons a fun exploration of whatever genre takes your fancy. I was an anxious adult novice and my experience with Fran was always great: encouraging, comfortable, and geared to the music and theory of interest to me. I couldn't speak more highly of Fran as a great guitar teacher for both for acoustic and electric for any skill level.
After seeing a performance by Alex I asked him to work with me in the future on a dance piece. His technique, clarity, and expressiveness were outstanding then and later when he performed in a new solo I created on a guest artist from a dance company in Israel. He was a pleasure to work with in the process and the final product. I would recommend him to anyone, anywhere, at any time and look forward to working with him again.
Allison Cannon is not only a decided musician, but she is also passionate about teaching others. I've known Allison for eight years now and have heard her skill level advance with each passing year. She is hands down one of the most talented musicians I know for her age, and quite frankly most anywhere. She has done a multitude of performances and comes highly recommended by a well renown director, Patrick Henning. If you have the opportunity to work with this shinning-young, talented musician take everything you can in! She will teach you the skill you wish to have from the skill that still surpasses most well known artists.
Ms. Røsnes introduced me to several particular stringplaying technical applications. A mountain of patience and a source of inspiration. I had almost given up hope of ever learning but I am still playing and through her instructions am able to make the music live. Much appreciated! Thank you.
I got to Taylor's class every Saturday, and have a great time! We learn to play each drum part of a rhythm. It is part history lesson and carrying on tradition of the song. In his class you can drop in and be able to play with no experience necessary! I think everyone should try one class, because you might be surprised how you like! you get to go away with worldly knowledge from a worldly man who has patience and fun all in one!
These guys art great! Really good original songs and their covers are spot on! Fantastic live band. Will definitely see them again.
I attended a Christmas party at my father's assissted living facility tonight. I was simply shocked at the caliber of singer American House was able to hire. Mr. Robbins was outstanding. Not only was he able to perform under stressful circumstances (a loud dinner setting with many elderly in walkers moving about directly in front of him) but he performed as if he were singing for a Grammy award! I would love to see another performance by this talented man; he was simply wonderful!
Sarah is an amazing make up artist. Will definitely use her in the future.
Provide instrumental music for a spiritual encounter. Mikey McKay handled this with confidence and left a lasting impression on all who attended.

Chicago's Skip Towne & The Greyhounds personify hard-driving, heartfelt classic blues, jazz, swing, ballads, and downright good time rockin' blues that you can't refuse!

I am a DJ (downtempo cocktail music) with live violins and effects. Mesmerizing, we have played events across the country, including The Peninsula, Trump Tower, The Four Seasons, Navy Pier Skyline Stage, The Mandelay Resort in Vegas, and many more. We've been entertaining as this group since 1999.
We are an 8-man rockin' R&B/blues band with a dynamic frontman/harp player, a rhythm section that's "tight as rope", two funky guitar players, and an amazing horn section. With more than 200 years of cumulative musical experience among us, we craft sets that get the crowd up and dancing, from twenty-somethings to folks in their seventies. We'd love to play your club, corporate event, casino or festival. Call us today for availability!
