My lesson with Don, who's very amicable and respectful of the student's desires, was a good experience. His approach with drumming students is based more in music theory and from the perspective of the other band members (vocalist, guitarist, etc.), so he advocates for a strong base in fundamental beats, staying in rhythm, and understanding how to sync up with other members of a band. Not previously having this perspective, his insight was valuable and I've taken some of the things he's mentioned to heart. For me, the material was pretty easy to pick up since I have some experience both with the drums and piano, but other students may initially fumble with his quick pace - don't let that discourage you though, I believe that even a true beginner could get used to the pace within a few lessons. If your desire is to start gigging, he's very adamant about getting you on a fast track towards doing just that. If you're willing to put in the effort I believe that he speaks earnestly and you'll soon be gigging. Overall I recommend him if you're looking for a good, well-rounded intro.

Mr. Grattan provided videography, a band, and a duo, for my daughter's wedding. It was such a relief having all of that in the hands of one person instead of three different vendors. The band was called the Rockits, and they were fantastic. They played great music and when they went on break, they played new music like a DJ would. It was really perfect. The duo was PG&Robin. They were really good for the beginning when people were heading in and having a champagne before the ceremony. The video Mr. Grattan did was really professional and my daughter got it within a week, which is unheard of. She got a long and short one. I highly recommend Mr. Grattan and PG Productions for video and entertainment.

I couldn't have been happier to have David play at my wedding! Nothing but good things to say about my experience with him. He was so easy to communicate with leading up to my event and was more than happy to accommodate anything I needed. I can't say how many people have given compliments on how much they loved listening to him perform. He is extremely talented and has an amazing voice. Not to mention very kind and professional. I would hands down recommend him to anyone who is looking to hire a musician. We didn't get a chance to see him because he played our ceremony and cocktail hour, but we plan to go see him perform as soon as we can!!

I've been going to 7DrumCity for almost a year and really enjoy going there. Not only is it a good place to start to learn how to play drums, but it's a cool spot for experienced drummers as well. It's filled with drummers and other musicians. What better place to meet and connect with other musicians? It's nice being able to bounce back ideas and questions with other drummers. Maybe you have a question regarding in ear monitors or particular drum heads or mics, whatever it is, it's nice being able to ask other drummers who regularly gig, tour, and record. I took lessons long ago when I was a kid and I've missed being able to just sit down and talk drums with someone. In terms of actual lessons, my view is that you're never too old or experienced to learn new beats and styles. It can be very easy to get set in your ways style and technique wise. I think it's healthy to try new things and get another drummer's perspective. All of the instructors are well qualified to teach, no matter your skill level.

Working with Ryan was a great pleasure! He kept the event lively and upbeat (for the most part) and everyone who came out really enjoyed the music selection. Despite the constant request for Bachata music he was great and he did try his best to accommodate to the requests made by club members and attendants. Other than that, he was affordable, a great DJ and I would love for Ryan to DJ at our future events. Thank you!

My son Conor and I really enjoyed seeing you again @ Dogfish...you started at 8:05 and were still playing when we left after 11...nice talking to you between sets too. We saw Dylan in Bangor (Aug 20 ) and have booked a trip to see him and Mark Knopfler in Dublin on October 5th...!!!! But we will see you at both Slainte and Dogfish as well. Now that's a damn fine October lineup, if I may be so bold! Cheers, john & conor

We had such an awesome time with this group. We had a neighborhood picnic on Saturday and I'm still getting emails from attendees about The Marquees. Great band and great singers. They showed up well in advance to make sure they were set up by the time we had them scheduled to play. You will not go wrong if you hire this group - original back up singers for Marvin Gaye. We have asked them to come back for our next annual picnic. Fun and more fun! ❤️🇺🇸

I recently had a party in which BTP was the DJ. He provided excellent service. The music got the people go iand we partied all night long. The owner Wayne is very professional. No stone was left untouched . He ensured the DJ showed up on time had the music we requested and left the venue at an appropriate time were we did not have to pay any extra fees. I would highly recommend his services and I will be using him in the future for all my needs.

Mike played at our outdoor event. Great music and great interaction with our crowd. Mike has high-tech equipment that didn't require much space. He fulfilled all requests and kept everyone moving to the music. I have already recommended him to others and look forward to having him DJ my next big event.
