Peter provided a fabulous band, The Rockits, for a huge birthday party! They played great dance party music and didn't charge a ridiculous amount. Terrific tunes and energy from everyone in the band. Really made the party fun! I will contact him for any entertainment needs I have in the future for sure.

This past May, Stevie drove to northern VA to perform at my husband's 50th surprise party. It was in our backyard. The goal was to have a fun, yet casual evening w/ close friends and live music. Stevie was professional and personal. He tailored the music selection to what my husband liked and many "on the spot" requests. He was so great, that my husband and guests asked him to stay for another hour...which he graciously agreed to do w/o hesitation. The night could not have gone better and a major part of that was due to Stevie. I HIGHLY recommend him for any private party, wedding, bar/restaurant, etc. You will not be disappointed. My best to Stevie w/ his future performances!

This post is a few months overdue, but we hired Sounds Good for our wedding's outdoor cocktail hour over the summer. We went with the 2 piece sax and guitar and they sounded great from every area outside. Very professional, easy to work with and our guests really enjoyed the music. Would highly recommend for any function.

Sam is a gift to me sent straight from Heaven! I’ve grown so quickly in such a short time - even though music and singing has been a passion for most of my life… As a kid I harmonized with the congregation to Gospel music in my father's tiny Baptist church in Southern California or "jammed" alone in my room to records my folks bought me (not realizing it was the dawn of Christian Contemporary Music). Later in my childhood I did a few jingles for TV commercials & then sang in choirs as a teen - anything from Handel's Messiah to English Madrigals; in college I moved on to singing in a cappella groups: R&B (Essence) / Praise&Worship (Rejoice). Now 30 years later, I'm still singing when I can (as a part of my church's Worship Department) - but I can't say that I've grown that much vocally since I was a kid in my father's church...well, that all changed when I met Sam. Sam immediately put me at ease when I met him (I'm a bit perfectionistic & was soooo nervous). After just the first meeting, he told me things about my voice even my current choir director doesn't know – whom I’ve served under for a decade! He's a great guy - but, he IS demanding...putting me through the paces necessary to build a good foundation first all the while being very affirming. Actually, the first gift Sam gave me was Confidence. I don't have a fantastic voice but I have a good ear & Sam can hear subtle but important qualities/problems in my voice & call them out for me & then give great tips to correct them - whether it was my tone, breathing, inflection or phrasing. [I've purchased online voice programs (eg, Singing Success) & have understood the issues before but one-on-one instruction with Sam has addressed them more than every CD exercise I've tried.] Because I am a mixture of different musical backgrounds, I LOVE that Sam has the unique ability to fuse Eastern & Western music theory into practical instruction. I’m all about understanding the details behind singing. But, I’ve learned that the best Technician is not the best Teacher or Singer. It also requires something of the Heart. Well – that’s the beauty of Sam’s range: if the song requires soul...he's got it; if a more traditional, classical flavor is needed...no problem! So – for me – the best thing about Sam is his genuine heart for his students and for the true purpose of Music: to release in sound something from the heart that blesses ourselves & others...from the very core TO the very core. This was what I was missing before...the sound that came out of my mouth never seemed to merit what I felt inside. Well, I'm so much closer now to this precious place than I was before (after only 7 weeks)! I still have a LONG way to go. But because of God’s gift to me (Sam), I know I’m on the road to some place very new...

After seeing Damon perform at venues and events in the area, we were very excited to hire his band for our wedding. We had an outdoor wedding with about 180 guest of all ages. After an initial meeting to discuss the evening, the band showed up and proceeded to rock the house right down to the ground! With music from every generation, all of the guests had an evening that they will remember forever. Damon learned our "first dance" song, rocked out a hardcore "Hava Nagila" and other cultural dance songs and even played my father in laws favorite tunes. People still talk about our big day and Damon and his crew were a huge part of the success. If you want to have an event that has has people dancing to the wee hours, Damon Forman is the guys for you!

I hired David to DJ and perform acoustic cocktail hour at my wedding and he was excellent. Very professional. David is very versatile. The fact that he is a singer and acoustic guitar player in addition to DJ was HUGE. Saved me a lot of headaches. Would hire again for and DJ or acoustic / band services.

We weren't sure what to expect booking a band without having met them, but New Legacy Jazz Band was definitely worth it! They made our wedding so much more fun, with none of the typical wedding band cheesiness many come to expect. We were very impressed with the samples posted on their website, and even more so with the easy communication with our contact Alan. We could tell they had done this many times in the past - every time we sent a question (such as whether they could play music from a CD, or would be able to make announcements), he responded promptly and assured us that all of our needs were covered. The band was able to do everything we hoped for and more! We had 165 guests, and packed the dance floor even at 1 in the afternoon. We had been so worried about people not dancing that early, but the music was so good it was hard not to! In addition, Alan was friendly and personable at the mic making announcements and cuing the events of the afternoon, giving us exactly what we wanted despite the vague descriptions we had sent. We heard a LOT of compliments about the music from our guests, and are so glad we booked New Legacy for our wedding. We would recommend them in a heartbeat - the music was great, the energy was high, and they were so very easy to work with.

Jarrett Baker and JAMM Session were some of the most professional and talented vendors I’ve worked with in a long time. I served as the event planner for a large wedding in the Columbia, Maryland area and had to pleasure of coordinating music for the reception with Jarrett and his team. They were prompt to respond to messages and were very organized. They worked with the bride and the groom to obtain the music they wanted for all the formalities and communicated them back to me. They truly made the reception! The sound quality was awesome, the songs had everyone up and dancing, and they even did an amazing job as emcees! My only wish was that they were located here in the NC area where we are based out of. Two thumbs up for them. Book them as fast as you can! -April Pyatt - Socialite Events-

We have seen Buddy Love numerous times around town. We like them so much we hired them to play at our wedding reception. Randy started out with playing background music on the keyboard an hour before the band started. It was beautiful! His choice of music was excellent. The band played everything we wanted and even learned a song we wanted to play for our first dance. They were on time and led the activities throughout the evening. Our friends and family members raved about Buddy Love. There were a lot of people on the dance floor! No regrets and we are officially Buddy Love groupies!

I can confidently say Escapade is the best wedding band I've ever seen. The quality of their musicianship and showmanship is outstanding. Not only are they excellent musicians but they are also wonderful people which makes working with them delightful especially durring chaotic parties. I've even found myself listening to songs they played that I hadn't heard before I saw them performed by Escapade. I can't recommend them strongly enough.

Frank played his sax wonderfully during my wedding. We arrived on time and worked with the pianist to make sure they performed in sync. Frank was also very flexible and understanding. Thanks Frank and I hope I will have the opportunity to work with you again. God bless you!
