Chris Hamel is an amazing DJ, Musician and Lighting Technician. Two years ago I founded Affordable Affairs, a network group of wedding and event vendors, and aggressively pursued Chris to join us as our DJ. I have never known anyone more professional in his field. He is just a class act through and through and I speak for all my partners in Affordable Affairs when I say he is as good as it gets! We hire him, and will continue to hire him, as a DJ, Musician and Lighting Technician as often as he can work with us!
I had been trying to find the right classical guitar teacher for years before taking lessons with Tim. Honestly, I have made more progress in a few months with Tim than I had made in nearly eight years of various other teachers. His love of music and teaching are evident in the fact that he really takes the time to understand your background (musical and otherwise), your musical interests, and your personal goals. He then tailors his approach with each lesson to ensure that you progress steadily as a musician through sound technique and theory rather than simply teaching you how to play songs. I highly recommend Tim to anyone interested in becoming a proficient guitarist in any style.
I have known Chris for many years as a leader and director of musicians. I know he is a passionate and talented musician. He will wholehearted work with high musical standards to fulfill his commitment to you. +Terry Wiles - Bishop
Tom is an accomplished, and very pleasant musician with lots of ability and knowledge. He is able to simplify concepts so that I am beginning to know a set of chords so that I can play a song on my ukelele, which is my goal. Perfect!!
I was a bit nervous starting piano lessons in my 70s but Jonathan has given me such encouragement and praise that I am eager to take on increasingly challenging pieces. He is very attentive both to my strengths and to things I need to work on. Lessons are stimulating and very rewarding. I have seen him perform in groups and solo piano - he is superb!
Lynn is my music hero ! She can listen to any song and write down the chords. She will adjust to make it easier or harder whatever your abilities. I have a busy schedule and often don't have time to practice between lessons and she is cool with that. She also will adjust lesson times when she is able which fits my hectic schedule. I'm glad my first guitar teacher "fired" me ....that allowed me to meet Lynn
I began taking voice lessons with Ashley in the summer of 2016 when I decided to begin a new solo project. The idea of singing was quite intimidating to me, but my experience with Ashley has eradicated that intimidation. She is a patient and thorough teacher who utilizes technique-building exercises, as well as songs (which show the practical application of the exercises). I've enjoyed every lesson, I've always walked out feeling like I've understood each lesson, and I know I'm a better a singer now thanks to her. What more could I ask for?
We own a music store and wanted to treat our musician friends to a very special evening. A fellow musician recommended Jean and her band. We visited a restaurant gig where they performed. Jeans jazz standards vocal style was exactly what we wanted. We hired them for our event...they were amazing! So entertaining. We highly recommend them for any special event....
Joe is professional, well prepared, and, most importantly, a rock solid drummer. He has a good rapport with kids and is a pleasure to work with . I would recommend him as an instructor or a musician for hire without hesitation.
He provided private alto sax lessons to my daughter for 7 years. She is an exceptional musician, and he played a very significant role.
As a assistant manager of O'Connor's public house, I have Tommy playing for entertainment often. He's a talented musician and songwriter writer. Which is why I will continue to hire him for gigs in the future.
Everyone enjoys Dave Mack solo or with his band. Has a good play list and plays request too. He is consistent on keeping people entertained while having dinner and drinks or out with others having a few pops and a good time.
Avenue Groove was my automatic go-to band for my twin daughter's wedding at the Farmington Club in Farmington, CT last September. They are simply the BEST wedding band I have ever heard (and I am also a professional musician who knows MANY bands!) Their professionalism, tact and warm approach made the announcing in of the wedding party seem like saying hello to your best friends! The wedding party danced their way into the reception hall all the way from the outside gathering spot! Once they started playing, EVERYONE got up to dance and never sat down! This band goes from one song into the next and keeps everyone rocking from beginning to end, making for a PERFECT party for any age crowd! We were SO impressed with them that they are also playing our other twin daughter's wedding this month on August 31st at the Great Hill Country Club in Waterford. There wasn't even a MOMENT'S hesitation when we sat down with my daughter, my future son-in-law and the groom's parents about who to have play their wedding since my future son-in-law's family had also attended another relative of theirs wedding with Avenue Groove playing for that one also (on our recommendation!) The bottom line is that I've been a professional musician for 50 years, played ALL types of music and I can honestly say that there is not a more perfect band for playing a wedding than Avenue Groove if you want the wedding to stay exciting, moving right along and FUN! Oh......and their level of musicianship and sound is second to none also! My wife and I go to hear them all the time also. That's how much we LOVE their music!
Jason Martin is a thoughtful dedicated musician who has a great teaching style. He is always prepared, professional and patient. His drive to better himself while pushing others is what is truly special about Mr.Martin. He has been playing for over 20 years and it shows. He is comfortable teaching Metallica as well as Scruggs. He has an amazing selection of instruments so you can try different tunings or stringed instruments. He has you work on pieces of your interest right away, which keeps you engaged. I do not think you could find a better teacher anywhere.
I play songs you won't expect from solo acoustic. I can do background as well as dance music. Feel free to click the Facebook link - there are several samples recorded on an iphone - I have many more upon request -
Both my daughters took guitar lessons with Wes. Hands down he is the one of best in the area. Wes has the ability to reach anyone at any level and brings out the absolute best in them. He listens to the individual student and understands their needs and desires to help bring out their personal best. Wes is versatile and talented and we were fortunate to know Wes and be taught by such a consummate professional. He relates well to any age level and doesn't push his music repertoire/agenda onto his students but gives them the opportunity to explore their style and genre of music freely. I highly recommend this fine and talented musician and teacher!!
