Jay from Xen Live worked for me in the DC Music Industry during 2016 and he is an expert at planning and executing events. His communication skills, attention to detail, technical knowledge and dedication to clients is among the best in his field. I would highly recommend Jay and Xen Live for DJ services or Live Events…clients cannot go wrong by selecting Xen Live for special events.

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.

Where do I begin ? I was new to the Chseapeke, Va area and was looking for a vocal coach for my daughter, who was 13 at the time. I was recommended to Tona by a woman who lived in our apartment complex. Tona and I laugh now because, like all mother hens, I sat in on the first lesson to make sure she was the right teacher for my child. Since that day I have never looked back; not only is Tona a technically gifted teacher but she imparts her knowledge with such joy and excitement that she makes learning a celebration. She has taught my daughte, who has gone on to win pagemts, perform, write CDs and compose music for films, for the last ten years. My daughter and I adore Tons and she has become our family' and I can't see anything but dreams realized with this gift I a person as your artistic guide.

I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.

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!!

Jack Philipoom came to my attention at my nieces wedding reception in Williamsburg , Virginia where he was performing jazz guitar with an ensemble. It was there that I booked him for a garden party at my McLean , Virginia home. The flow and style of this extremely talented musician added an elegant ambiance to our evening. His personality is delightful, and our guests found him to be simply charming. I will definitely rehire him, and have highly recommended him to our friends.

Carey is extraordinarily well-informed in all musical styles and is very patient and good-humored as he communicates to his students a thorough grounding in musical theory. In doing so, he is very passionate about fulfilling his professional obligations to his students. In addition, he is himself an excellent jazz musician. I recommend him to any budding musician without reservation.

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!

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.

I was an adult beginning piano student of Penny's in New Haven for a couple years until I moved, even though her other students were young. At first I was embarrassed because I'd wait a few minutes for my lesson and hear like a 12 year old or so, playing a big Beethoven Sonata or something, and then I'd be in there as an adult playing maybe a few of those level 1 or 2 pieces. But I can't imagine how anyone could stay embarrassed around Penny A.. She's sweet and seems to have a way of helping people feel good about themselves. But she's not the type you'd want to catch you slacking off because she cares so much and is generous so you'd feel very bad about slacking off. She also didn't treat me as a little old lady with limited music abilities. I think she cared as much about me and my progress as she did about that young prodigy I mentioned, for example. I looked forward to my lesson. And the kids before and after my lesson were relaxed and jokey and they seemed to like her as much as I did. But of course I can't speak for them! This thing says I'm supposed to say something went wrong. Probably nothing that wasn't my own fault. Only thing I can think of, maybe she'd always give me and other students a little extra time, so if your lesson is maybe during the second half of her day, you might have to wait 10 minutes, never over 15 minutes, for your lesson. I didn't mind though. Penny A taught very well.. I'm really happy to read music and play so much on my piano that before had been collecting dust. It impresses my family, too!

We hired Kim's trio for our jazz soiree and they were excellent! Kim let us know a few days prior to the event that he couldn't make it, and gave us the option of canceling or having the trio w/ another pianist playing in his stead. We could have gotten another band altogether (three replied to our request on Thumbtack), but we went w/ his option of the substitute pianist and could not have been happier. The trio was fabulous, attendees from the young to the not so young loved all the tunes, and everyone had the best time. We are definitely putting Kim and his trio or quartet on our slate of events for 2018.

I am an R&B artist from Baltimore. I am currently finishing up my first album by multi-platinum producer Herb Middleton. I sing, write song, arrange and produce. I honestly have a gift for melody creation. I also have my own band. We perform songs ranging from classic soul, i.e. Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Eddie Kendricks, Stevie Wonder to contemporary, i.e. Maxwell, D'Angelo, Chris Brown, etc. Most people in the area call my sound "New Age Motown".

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! ❤️🇺🇸
