I had a WONDERFUL experience working with DJ Mark and Party Makers. I was a real difficult client! I insisted on making the play list and not straying from it. Mark totally listened to me but used his creativity in mixing the tunes. Now that I know him, I'd be a lot more flexible. Mark has great taste in music! I asked him not to speak much, which he followed. But when he spoke, he was funny! His equipment was great, he was extremely professional. Mark arrived on time, set up quickly, broke down quickly. Consummate professional. My husband has another July 4th birthday next year, I'd LOVE to hire DJ Mark again!!! I've received SO MANY compliments on the DJ from my guests. Everyone asked where I found him! Thank you Thumbtack!!!

I was a voice student of Julie's for several years. In that time I grew in my skill and confidence as a singer. I learned how control my instrument, and event after the lessons ended, the impact carries on! She also helped me feel comfortable in many genres including country, blues and rock. Julie was always patient with me, even when I was being thick-headed. I always felt encouraged through by her teaching and mentoring. I can say with full confidence that I would not be the singer I am today without Julie!

I'm an adult student. David has been working with me since 2009. He's amazing. He has me playing songs I never thought I'd be able to play. He has a real knack for getting to the heart of the matter when it comes to musical expression on the guitar. He's great. Hire him!

What an amazing night we had listening to the wonderful songs so elegantly played by the band and sung by this incredibly talented artist Gabriela Martina. I would recommend that you hire this band immediately for your event!!! I listened to many demo tracks from local arts for our corporate event in Boston and Gabriela and her band members stood out immediately. They were the perfect choice. Throughout my time dealing with Gabriela, her professionalism and response time were fantastic and was so easy to work with. Our guests were extremely complimentary of the band’s talent and song selection. This group has a bright future!

Brandy did a great job performing at my wedding. I received so many compliments from my guests about them. They heeded all of my requests ranging from song selection to sound volume and vocal style. Perhaps the biggest testament to their performance was the sight of my 4 year old nephew rocking out to the band's music, despite never having expressed any dance inclination previously. It was an astounding revelation, even to his parents.

In my role at Berklee College of Music, I see/hear a lot of music. I happened to check out The New Review this week -- this band is the straight-up, no B.S., *real deal,* hands down. Nine-piece mad-tight band. Great musicians and excellent vocalists making a completely fun atmosphere. Nothing at all against DJs, but there's something hella-special about singers and players who love what they're doing to make your body move, and this band does it like few others. They packed the place, and even people with too little room to dance couldn't help bopping their heads. If you're looking for a band that feels the joy of playing and gives it to a whole crowd, The New Review is it. Absolutely "pure funk, uncut funk, the bomb."

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

After taking piano lessons from a traditional piano teacher for 6 years, I needed a change. Steve was the perfect choice. He played at a local piano bar at the time, and I wanted to hone my skills so I could play in bands, too. I assumed he would teach me the ins and outs of chords and then send me off to conquer the music scene, but it turned out he had a real mastery of musical theory, and he held it to a very high importance. He began each of our lessons with music theory - all the basics that make a solid foundation for any musician. Then, he introduced a new concept to something I had been doing all along. He gave me sheet music to learn - tough teaching songs - then after a time, began blocking my view of my hands with paper while playing. Eventually, he'd block my hands and take away the music, teaching me a very important part of playing anything in front of people. You have to know the music inside and out. You can't rely on the sheets in front of you. That's the only way you can truly immerse yourself in the song and let your fingers do the playing. His fees were reasonable and the time was very well-spent. You have to do the work between lessons to get the most out of them. Steve has a true mastery of live performance on every level, and it would behoove any musician, young or old, beginner or skilled, to spend a year in his teaching. We can all benefit from it. I certainly did. I've been in various bands, ever since, and I haven't looked back except to remember who helped me get here.

As a composer, collaborating with Dennis Shafer continues to be a great opportunity to work with an incredibly well-rounded, sophisticated, and poetic musician. After soliciting my musical intentions, such an impeccably pictorial and wonderfully sincere performance of my music could only have arisen from someone so wholly invested not only in his craft, but in a greater concept of what music can mean. I am eager to be again composing music for Dennis to perform. In the spirit of his teaching philosophy, he’s opened my eyes to the thrill of collaborative work. Composers can be recluses, and I needed that eye-opener. His availability, willingness, and capacity to clarify the challenges of writing well for the saxophone makes me a better composer. A chance to work or study with Dennis in any capacity should not be passed up. He is a renaissance man and a worldbeater.

Dave Hines is an excellent, talented musician. I have had the opportunity to hear him on several occasions, and he has also played for me. He is the consummate professional, an accomplished musician, with an extensive repertoire. Ether as a solo musician or, with a band, Dave Hines will not disappoint!

Java Jive is the band you MUST hire for your wedding or other event. They are extremely professional and incredibly easy to deal with - available quickly and easily by phone and email. Don was a pleasure to work with, and his experience shows through his careful attention to detail in how you want your event to go. The band is AMAZING, and your guests will want to dance and do anything except sit down!! Their repertoire is impressively extensive, and they can learn anything. We absolutely loved them at our wedding, as did our guests, young and old. We had the pleasure of hearing them perform and two prior non-wedding events, and every time, guests have left saying, "wow that band was amazing!" You simply must hire them - they did a fantastic job!

Dave & Paul did an excellent job in all ways. Clearly both are very talented, with a wide range of music knowledge. They were very sensitive in getting in synch with the party vibe. Likable as well. A great experience & I’d recommend them very highly!

    David: “I had SEVERAL people, dozens, tell me that the band was awesome which I knew would happen but many people said “I feel like I’m at a rock concert - I am so into the music.” Just awesome. Everyone spoke about every part of the band too. “The horn guys are amazing” “That drummer is SICK!” “That’s one of the best guitarists I’ve ever heard live” (Billy Jean - I mean come on - that guitar bit at the end was just mind blowing), and on and on. And as far as the singers connecting with the audience, it was unreal. I mean unreal. They made every person feel special. I know I shouldn’t but I felt proud for picking Downtown Fever! -Julie and Tyson Schoezel”
