Nick and his mate, Sam showed up on time....ready to work and continued to play three sets during a three hour period. This is my first time hiring a band for my personal party and I could not have worked with a better pair. I will definitely use him again. Well worth the money. Nice guys and open to my inexperienced suggestions. Lol! And I haven't even mention the quality of their music (jazz) was outstanding. They were the hit and highlight of the party.

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!

It was a joy to work with Kathryn. She responded immediately, and made arrangements to bring along her guitarist, to accommodate a last minute holiday party. Everyone loved the music which ranged from holiday classics, some old MoTown and 60s/70s favorites! I would definitely hire Kathryn again!

More than just a teacher. I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently. Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him.

Programs, Arlington Heights Memorial Library S.
Verified review

The Alba Quartet played a performance recently for the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, as part of both our Sunday Musicale series, and our One Book, One Village initiative. Carlyn went above and beyond to connect with the One Book, One Village title, "The Geography of Genius", talking about the life and genius of Mozart, and playing his works beautifully. The audience absolutely loved the performance, as you can see below from a few of the comments we received in our online program survey: “Enjoyable performance by the Alba Quartet” “I wasn't expecting the flutist to speak, but truly appreciated how she 'narrated' the quartet's performance. Her comments were informative, interesting, insightful, funny and tied to the book Geography of Genius. I liked the way the other musicians introduced themselves by talking about where they are from and where they've studied/performed music, again linking to the book.” “The quartet members are skilled musicians and seemed very happy to be part of the program at the library. Unless we could have sipped champagne during the performance, I can't think of a single way to improve the experience. Thank you!” “Excellent musical group which did an exceptional job of playing Mozart's music!” “Beautiful music and a lovely selection of Mozart works. Very interesting tidbits of info on Mozart as well. We thoroughly enjoyed the program” Many thanks to the Alba Quartet for providing the Arlington Heights community with such a high-caliber music program!

Jerri was great...very patient and flexible as she kept my guests singing the Christmas carols we requested. Perhaps most impressive was her willingness to trek out during a snow storm! Would hire her again in a second...

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

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!

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.

I took guitar lessons from Fran. He is a very soulful and talented person. As a teacher, he is knowledgeable and helped me accelerate in my journey to learn guitar. You can't go wrong with Fran. He is one of the best!
