I had a wonderful time at Ponderosa Garden over 25 night spot in Baker. The place was extremely clean and spacious. The owner is very responsive to your needs and working on your time schedule. Great sound and music selection for adult entertainment.

If you are having an event that needs the best DJ with the best selection and sound equipment, you need to book Tri Star Sound with Freddy Dee! He's the best! Interacts with the audience in a great way and can provide whatever music you want to hear! Don't forget that he also is the drummer for an awesome band if live music is what you like. Just ask him about Tight Squeeze! They can rock the house!

Steven Hawkings was the DJ at my wedding and gave a awesome experience. When my brother in-law got married Hawkings was the guy he wanted. Steven not only plays the best music to get the event going, but gets involved "live" on the dance floor with the crowd. If you want a DJ that will provide you with top notch entertainment - DJ Hawk Man is the man.

Very professional and skilled musicians. I am a violinist, my mother-in-law a pianist, and my brother-in-law a Jack of all trades musician, and not a complaint or suggested alteration could be found between us, nor any of our other family members. They added the necessary touch that added to our intimate wedding being perfect for us! Would hire them again and I strongly recommend them to others for their events.

Kris Hitchcock is punctual, prepared, and professional. From his solo acoustic shows to his sets with a full band, he never fails to deliver a quality product. Very few artists, in my experience, consistently perform at the level Kris does each time he steps on stage. His repertoire of cover songs is stellar and his original songs are equally impressive. His knowledge of the industry is extensive and he is always willing to answer questions or offer advice. You would be hard pressed to find a better musician, performer, or human than Kris Hitchcock.

My husband and I hired Nat for our wedding reception! Him and his combo were amazing! I gave him just a general outline for what I wanted to be played at the reception. (Jazz music of all kinds) He pulled this off without a hitch. We also told him what we wanted our first dance song to be and he picked a very nice version to play for us. My mom wanted to sing at the reception and with only one run through of the song he had it down and did an amazing job! He was very fun to watch play and also brought a very uplifting feeling to my reception. He did everything we expected him to. He announced my husband and I coming into the reception, announced what was going on, and had a fun time doing it! As the reception drew to a close we were privileged to listen to Nat sing as well. That was a very nice surprise! He has a very good voice! Overall, Nat went above and beyond for our reception! He portrayed the feeling we wanted to have through his vast extent of music knowledge! I would highly recommend Nat for any function you would need live music at.

Enjoyed seeing this group perform at the BMC in New Orleans. We liked them so much we went to see them again a second time. Great "Big Band" sound and Eudora has a great set of pipes. She can really sing! Some of the best music we heard on our vacation to the Big Easy. John & Linda from Nevada

My husband and I attended two deb parties in New Orleans this year. JMO - The Jimmy Maxwell Orchestra was drop-dead fantastic.The music and professionalism was unrivaled. Non-stop fun – pure vocals and hard hitting instrumentals. I do not have plans for a debutante party or wedding reception, but am trying to come up with a reason to hire the band for an event in the future!

We hired the Esplanade Jazz Band for our corporate event last year and were very pleased with the experience. They had a great vibe and were so good to work with. Would highly recommend them for events, both private and corporate.
