Review for William Powers I am a non-professional singer interested in improving my overall level of performance in both solo and choral situations. I have worked with Mr. Powers on several occasions in preparation for a vocal recital and an opera performance, and I truly cannot recommend him highly enough! Not only is he great fun to work with, he is able to quickly and accurately assess my strengths and weaknesses as a performer, and offer practical advice that I can put into use immediately. He is particularly effective in helping me bring a song to life by examining the emotional content of the music and lyrics, and then presenting it in such a way as to deeply touch the hearts and minds of my listeners. Whatever your current level of skill as a singer, actor, or public speaker, and whether you are an amateur or professional performer, Mr. Powers can give you the inspiration and the practical tools to move on to a much higher level!

We hired Lisa for our son's 1st Birthday party. She was great. She did an amazing job painting and she worked very well with the kids. I will definitely hire Lisa for our next event. We definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for this type of entertainment for their party.

Zack was asked to do our cub scout blue and gold banquet on a short notice and was very accommodating. Our meeting ran a bit late and he was very patient with the situation. He was very prompt to the engagement. He set up his own area and never batted an eye when asked to relote his set up for a skit that was preformed. He was very funny and included not only the scouts but also their siblings and adults were also involved. He is a very professional magician with an act for every situation. We were very pleased and will definitely recommend him to others in need of family friendly entertainment.

We used A+ DJ for a Winter Dance (Daddy/Daughter Dance) for the local elementary school. What a wonderful surprise!! Dan was fantastic! He had age appropriate and censored music for the kids and took requests from the girls and Dad's. He got the girls dancing and did not pressure the guys - which many were grateful for not being called out. Definitely looking forward to next year and asking Dan to be part of our Dance!

Jeremy and Olivia where a huge part of our wedding in October 2017. Jeremy was available to help out where ever we needed him to be and was very professional. Olivia performed live music for our first dance, father/daughter, and mother/son dances. I was able to pick out the songs I wished to have played. Olivia made each song her own and it made the moments so much more memorable. Jeremy and Olivia both went above and beyond making sure our big day went as planned. We are very happy with their quality of work and professionalism.

Joel Ramsey appears to be a visionary. He seems to have mastered multiple foreign accents, is extremely proficient in slapstick comedy, and conveys facial emotions extremely well. His work impresses me because I can't help but be entertained by his art. I know that he must be onto something, because when I show his work to others, they are laughing just as I am. What can Joel Ramsey do better? He can make MORE videos for his fans to enjoy!

AMAZING!!!!! She is not a face painter, she is an artist. There are not many people that do the type of face painting that she does. She truly had a gift. She does some outstanding balloon art also. She quickly creates masterpieces for the kids. She also made Wonder Woman balloon candy cups for a Ladies Night event at my office. Big hit! I have used her for several of my office events. She is great with kids! I will never use anyone else!

We were very pleased with the job Brendon did DJing our daughter's 8th grade graduation party. It was an outdoor, afternoon party. Brendon was very professional and polite. He responded promptly to my inquiries and provided us with everything we needed. He was on time and personable with our guests. The kids enjoyed him! He did a great job, played music appropriate for the age group of our guests and was very affordable too. I would recommend him.

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!

Shannon got back to me quickly and we went and met her and had a lesson to see if it would be a good fit with her and my daughter. I would do nothing to change my experience it is nice to be able to have a trial lesson to make sure it is a good match. My daughter has only had 3 lessons and I can already hear a big difference in her voice. My daughter loves going and has learned a lot in her few lessons. Also Shannon has been flexible with our busy schedule as long as we can give her some notice. I would not change anything about our experience it went very smoothly.

Dear Mike and Dave, Thank you both so much for a wonderful evening of entertainment. As the event planner for our company it is always hard to know what type of entertainment will work with our large and diverse group…needless to say you guys knocked it out of the park. First with the Jazz music during our social and dinner, then with the dueling pianos after dinner. I love how you worked the crowd and got everyone involved…the best was the little “cow bell” competition you started between both of our presidents! It is always a good time when you can see top executives of a company let loose and have fun. :) Everyone had such a blast, I will definitely keep you guys at the top of my list for next time.

About

Artist Bio Funny name. Great band! Most groups start with rock and pop and play blues when they run out of material. They start with blues because it's the basis for all-American pop music since early in the last century, then they take great material and do it the way they think it fits for the band. For 22 years, Chainsaw Curtis and the Creepers have been playing a distinctive brand of roadhouse blues, rock 'n' roll, and R&B music all over Wisconsin, northern Illinois, and eastern Iowa. More about Chainsaw Curtis and the Creepers Curt Rodeheaver started playing music on the piano at age nine and picked up the guitar at thirteen. Gigs for high school dances led to his first nightclub work in 1970. He continued to play in bands and in 1981 in Ithaca, New York with band mate Glenn Davis and started a weekly Blue Monday jam session at a night club called the Nines, which is still going today. According to Living Blues magazine, it's one of the longest continuously running jams in the country. In 1989, Curt moved to Southern Wisconsin from upstate New York to open the Silver Moon Blues Oasis in Darien. He got the name Chainsaw from a line in the Huey Lewis song "Cool Is the Rule (But Sometimes Bad is Bad)." The Creepers started as the house band at the Moon backing artists from Chicago. Curtis would occasionally take the band out of the club and do gigs in other area venues. When Curt left the Moon in 1993, he continued to book the band in clubs, at festivals, and parties. There have been many Creepers over the years (more than 35!). The first Creepers album, Too Much Like Work, was released in 1996 and included eight original pieces and three covers. Dave Luhrssen of the Milwaukee Shepherd Express called it one of the best locally produced blues albums. Curt's song "Nine Months of Winter" got to 102 on the Garageband.com over all charts in a field of more than 20,000 songs. The 2000 release Pantloads of Fun included eight original songs by Curt. John Noyd of Maximum Ink magazine called Pantloads a "smokey barbecue reminiscent of ZZ Top and Los Lobos." Chainsaw Curtis is currently working on material for his third album - (Tragedy's Easy) Comedy's Hard. The Creepers have more than a hundred years of experience on stage. There is video of the band on our Reverbnation page. It's blues! It's electric folk! It's American music! Crank it up.

I'm a Chicago area DJ. My career began when I was 14 carrying crates of records for a local DJ from my neighborhood. Since then, I've been dedicated to my craft of being the best at what I do, and I push myself to do better every time I do my job.
