I did not hire him for the party and went with a band outside of thumbtack. But while I was dealing with him, he was very responsive. Thank you
It was our distinct pleasure to have Ron and Mary provide the MC and music for our wedding reception in Quincy, MA. Through their professional planning, the eloquent introductions, the facilitation of live musicians and of course the tremendous musical selections, we were treated to a festive and joyous occasion. The dance floor was in motion all night! The Larrivees were like members of the family at the party. This great couple made our big day fantastic and memorable. Thanks again so much from Julie and Kevin Sullivan and families!!!! Five Stars out of five!
I hired Red Velvet Sounds to provide the music for our gala dinner at the Museum of Science in Boston. Our audience was a diverse mix of people from 30 countries and they all appreciated the music played on the evening. I have to say that the band was very professional with fantastic communication throughout. They also were able to adjust the timing of their performance when we moved them forward by 30 minutes at the last minute. Thank you Gabriela and the rest of the band!
Mary is warm, smart and professional. She was very quick to respond to questions I had about booking her band for my wedding. At the event, they sounded great and were so much fun to watch! I can't say enough about The O-Tones. My friend Dana booked them after seeing them at my wedding and I think it's safe to say she had the same experience.
I literally have no words on how amazing this band is! It was a lucky last minute hire and we totally slacked on getting our homework to them on time but they pulled it out! So nice and responsive. With our lack of direction on how to have the reception flow Paul guided us through and it was great! My guests commented a week later to say they had finally recovered from all the dancing! From my 'I need to hear one u2 song one Elton john song and one Bryan Adams song' managed to play during their break a playlist with them on it including my favorite U2 song! Seriously hire them. Like amazing. I want to have a party with them at it every year. All we could ask for and more
David works with our twin girls (7 years old). All they ever wanted to do was play guitar and he's got them playing songs they love. They can also read music, strum chords, and are actually starting to write songs. The growth since last fall is incredible. He's a great teacher and his Beatles tribute band is spot on. Def check them out!
Tom was a fantastic DJ and performer for our wedding celebration. He was very accessible, flexible, and easy to work with leading up to the wedding and was a huge hit with all of our guests during the big day. In addition to providing DJ services, Tom played flute, saxophone, and guitar at various stages of our celebrations and kept the dance floor packed throughout the reception. Tom played hits that everyone could get up and dance to, but also tailored his playlist to include some obscure songs and artists that my wife and I particularly enjoy. Our family and friends were thoroughly impressed with Tom’s talents (as were we!), and we received numerous comments from guests of all ages and musical tastes on how Tom’s abilities and musicianship provided a perfect soundtrack to such a joyous occasion. Tom was 100% the best choice we could have made for our wedding, and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone else!
My wife and I have very high standards and did our research, but as a lot our friends would agree: attending band showcases and crashing weddings is an incredible hassle. I couldnt find a single negative word about them on the internet, if anyone had any misgivings youd hear about it. We found that listening to both Shines website MP3s, as well as the bandleaders answers to our questions to be the most influential in our decision to hire them. Its not that difficult to hear if someone can play or sing, and they sounded even MORE convincing at the wedding. That really blew us away. Also, the price we were given was SO MUCH more reasonable than others we contacted! 6-8k for a wedding band, are you kidding? Id say that Shine Bands vast experience by far outweighs any band fresh out of music school trying to learn the wedding business. Ill take a veteran over a newbie any day! Seriously, from the moment I contacted The Shine Band, everything was very professional, friendly and first class. So was the booking and planning process. At the reception the band understood EXACTLY what was needed at the right time. Everyone was dancing so much we begged the function director to let us have more time! Working with them throughout was entirely and surprisingly stress-free. Ask my wife, no longer a bride: Isnt that one of the best compliments you could ever give?
I have seen Russ in two different bands; Either/Orchestra an Orchestra Morphine. Due to my being something of a pushy asshole I have managed to meet and get to know Russ, which has led to mischief and mayhem ensuing after gigs in places like Pittsburgh, PA and Falls Church, VA. I have loved E/O since taking a chance of one of their albums because I read a review that mentioned that they had done a cover of a King Cromson song. Without a doubt I consider taking that risk one of the best decisions I have ever made. E/O has never failed to release staggering album after staggering album... Players come and go (and gratefully returned for the NYC 25th anniversary gig) and genre after genre gets the E/O treatment (a combination of inventive charts topped by outstanding soloing)... And this band has never failed to make something ancient and modern, beautiful and frightening, new but familiar. They are almost single-handedly keeping something very American alive; the small big band. My only complaint is that they come to DC too infrequently. The two tours stages by Orchestra Morphine, to celebrate the life and music of Mark Sandman (who I thought i first heard when he sang 'Temptation' on an E/O album until I realized that was the same guy who sang in Treat Her Right) and again I had to stand in awe as Mrk's music was rearranged into forms that elevated and showed respect at the same time. If I die before Russ I hope he will compose a nice New Orleans funeral march for me. Russ, I promise if you do I'll stop asking you to come play in DC (but if you are willing to bring the band to Hell for a gig I promise to be in the front row).
I studied with Felix for a couple years, and it was an amazing experience. After studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, he went on to play in several noteworthy bands including Shockra and The Heavy Metal Horns and plays professionally frequently today. Felix is equally at home with rock, jazz, funk, and folk and will take the time to understand your guitar-playing goals. Want to learn to play by ear? Check. Read music and play from scores? Check. Immerse yourself in theory? Check. Felix's knowledge of the guitar is encyclopedic, he's patient, and he will make the journey fun. But most of all, with your commitment, you *will* learn to play the guitar.
As a member of the Board of Directors, and entertainment coordinator for The Friend of the Farm at Hilltop, a 501c3 non profit group in North central Connecticut restoring an historic farmstead into an agricultural and educational community resource, I've had the pleasure of contracting the Fast Lane Band several times for our public fundraising events. Their professionalism and reliability is outstanding. Truly the entertainment value here is HUGE. Their versatile playlists cover so many genres, and their delivery is so good- low key, high key -whatever, that everyone is always satisfied. I highly recommend this musical group for any function- Corporate, Civic, Weddings, Private Parties you name it- just make sure you have plenty of dance floor space. Definitely 5 stars here!
Radio Honey - Best cover band in New England! Amazing Musicians..Know how to please the crowd and keep them dancing!
4EverFab is one of the most professional and enjoyable bands to play at my venue, The Simple Man Saloon. Our patrons are always asking me when their next show is. Do yourself a favor and book these guys. They are spot on when it comes to the sound of the Beatles.
