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!
Matthew has been teaching my teenaged son guitar for the past few years. He is extremely knowledge, passionate, kind, professional, dedicated and just overall a fabulous teacher!! He has also been coaching our son's Rock band and he helped them to do great at their first public performance!
Dollar for dollar, hiring The Band Sundance was the best decision we made in our wedding budget. The band gave us a great experience from beginning to end. We had numerous guests say we had the best or one of the best receptions they have ever attended because of the music and our dancing (obviously aided by the music). They kept asking where I found them and how much I must have paid to book them. As great as the band was, they did not detract from us as a couple. Jim and the band planned everything to cater to us. They provided a DJ for the breaks, and a few songs we wanted outside of their repertoire were played on break. They even let me sit in for a song. I found them through this site, and did a lot of other research on them before booking. We wanted a band who could provide the 1940s big band sound for swing dancing and also play contemporary rock, pop, and country with everything in between (50s, Elvis, 80s, polkas, waltzes, etc.). Moreover, we wanted a band who played both “In the Mood”and “Uptown Funk” well. Hard to find, huh? Well, here they are. They read the crowd well and knew what songs to play to keep people excited and on the dance floor. They have a full sound with keyboards, drum set, lead guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, sax, and vocals, and they blended very well as a ensemble. They helped give our reception such an amazing energy. This praise might seem effusive from anyone who has not seen them, but you cannot go wrong with these guys.
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.
I enthusiastically support the recommendation of Nicole Auriemma for employment as an entertainer (guitarist and vocalist) in the Chicago area. I have known Nicole Auriemma for the past year and have employed her numerous times to provide musical entertainment during our summer villa events. Nicole always showed up on time and entertained our guests on a very professional level. Nicole is a pleasure to work with and always brings a smile and positive attitude whenever she plays guitar. It is very apparent that she enjoys performing for audiences in any type of environment." Sincere and best regards, Steven T. Samson
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!!
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.
Yuen Yee Richardson has a great space set up for lessons, and is usually flexible with meeting times. Very understanding and patient. She's always cheerful, and has a contagious passion for music and nurturing musical talent.
Greg is the best! He is an incredibly talented musician. He is B able to adapt any piece to your abilities. He wants you to play pieces you're interested in. His encouragement was kind, but firm-- which is exactly what I needed. He held me to a high standard that I was eager to meet. He has a great sense of humor, which made lessons fun and stress free. I highly recommend Greg!
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.
The Ron Harris Music Group was terrific! Ron will create a wonderful evening of background music perfect for a party when you want your guests to socialize. Ron took care of all the details including coming out to our venue ahead of time and checking the space out! Ron and his keyboardist played pop music, jazz, oldies-a wonderful range. He also chose the right volume for the party space. The Ron Harris group are excellent musicians and really nice guys. I recommend them wholeheartedly!
Kathryn was exactly what I envisioned when I set out to find a jazz singer for my father in law's birthday party. Her voice is seriously gorgeous and she was very easy to work with. She was flexible with me throughout our time planning the gig and was able to accommodate all of my requests. While her song list is quite vast, there were a few special tunes she specifically learned for this event and they sounded fabulous. She found the perfect accompaniment in a very talented guitar player as well. Throughout the time Kathryn performed and for hours afterwards I received compliments from other guests for finding such a talented duo. The men and women alike were very impressed with the quality of music, song selections, appearance, and demeanor of both musicians. Everyone thought the music really added something special to the party. Most importantly, my father in law was absolutely amazed with what wound up being the perfect gift for him. He was very impressed and I was so happy to see his face when Kathryn sang one of the songs she especially learned for us. He'll never forget it. I'd hire Kathryn again in a heartbeat.
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!
Couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with and help me and my brother bond while learning how to play guitar. Jesse is awesome!
I sought Mr. Novi out after taking a long hiatus from piano. I have had many piano teachers but Mr. Novi is definitely one of the most fun and enthusiastic teachers I've had. I have had many years of classical piano instruction but am completely new to jazz. Mr. Novi will give me suggestions on new pieces to learn, but ultimately leaves choosing what I learn up to me, no matter what style I want to learn (classical, jazz, rock n' roll, etc). Because of this I never see practicing as a chore since I am only playing the pieces that I truly enjoy. Mr. Novi is a fantastic musician himself, it's very inspiring to listen to him play! I would absolutely recommend Mr. Novi for anyone interested in studying piano.
