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!
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.
Jerry played at my daughters wedding rehearsal reception. His music was excellent and added a lot to the evening. Jerry is very talented and I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.
Violinist for our wedding, music was outstanding and perfect.
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!
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!
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 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!
Pete and I regularly performed, wrote music and recorded albums together in Shenzhen, China from 20012-2014. I've traveled the world and have performed/collaborated w musicians from all walks of life. Without a doubt, Pete is one of the best. His unique melodic & harmonic guitar colorings are essential in what set him apart from other composers. Pete knows how to listen to each song and write to meet the needs of that song. Pete's written well over 3 albums worth of music and has produce a few of his own music videos. Pete is also a seasoned music teacher, having 3-5 years of classroom teaching of guitar, ukulele in China as well as private lessons in the US over the last decade. And then there's performing: Pete's performed in all manner of venues, all types of bands and with eclectic and unique musicians. Theres very little he hasn't experienced. Whether you want to develop your guitar chops, learn how to song write, pro tips and pointers on performance - Trust me, Pete Kruse is your mentor. I'm his peer and I have learned countless skills from him. He gets my full recommendation.
We really enjoyed having Maxwell and his band at our holiday party every year since 2014. They played all the songs we requested and kept their performance at a reasonable volume.
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.
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.
Eduardo was extremely professional and dedicated. He arrived early during an extreme thunderstorm and setup in a timely manner. He catered across a wide variety of music which helped meld two families with different cultures for a wedding.
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!
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.
Michelle was wonderful from the moment we met her. She gracefully interacted with all of our guests (unlike another vendor of ours) and played absolutely beautifully. Her music really set our wedding apart and I could not recommend having Michelle play at your wedding or event more. 5 stars!!
The B-Side Band performed at our fundraising in November. They were outstanding!. I would highly recommend them for your next event. From securing our date to discussing the details of the evening, the members of the band were extremely helpful in guiding us. Our guests enjoyed their playlist and couldn't get off the dance floor.
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.
A crooner / singer and she was great! It was for an in-home 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my bosses in-laws who are 87 and 90 and they loved it, so thank you!
We had a birthday party for my husband's 55th and Rock Boxx could not have been more perfect! Their energy level accommodated the pace at which we love to celebrate! Family and friends have nothing but excellent comments about the social band members and their music! Can't thank them enough!
