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

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!

Adam was wonderful! We had him play acoustic guitar and sing during our cocktail hour and then DJ for our reception. He did an amazing job and everyone loved him. Thanks Adam!!

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

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!

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.

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!

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!

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”

Radio Honey is a truly professional quality live music act. Mike and his band of musicians know their material quite well. They put on a great live show and have very good stage presentation with tasteful lighting and good crowd interaction. I would hire them for any event looking for quality upbeat music with a festive vibe.

Verified review

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.

About

We’d love to provide fun music for your wedding celebration! We have been fortunate enough to play live, acoustic music (bluegrass, swing, roots music, old time) at numerous weddings throughout New England since 2006. In regards to music for the big day, we have found that the following formula works well for most folks: * Half an hour of mellow acoustic “seating” music prior to ceremony Processional and postlude (MP3 samples are here on our website) * 45 minutes of acoustic music amongst your guests during the cocktail reception * Fun dancing music after dinner for the reception You can use our PA for toasts and announcements. We also encourage folks to make an iPod mix of music to play during dinner, and fun dancing after we perform. (You and your friends might also love Prince of Hip Hop, or have some special songs you’d like to dance for another 30-45 minutes before the night ends!) We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have, and we provide a cost estimate. We typically book/quote events six to eight months in advance, so if you would like to secure your date, please get in touch! Also, please visit our web pages with wedding ideas specifically for Boston, on the Cape and the North Shore.

About

Talented individual artists have united to form one of the most sought-after bands around. This gives our clients the benefit of both male and female vocalists, resulting in high versatility. The end result: high energy performance and pure entertainment. In addition to vocalists, the band’s foundation is comprised of keyboards, bass, guitar, drums and a horn section (upon request). Ceremonial music, cocktail hour music, emcee, etc. are also available. Experience counts! With more than 15 years of performing experience, one of the most important factors the band knows to be important is that weddings and other events require correct song selection in order to create the right atmosphere. The Pulse Of Boston’s variety of music covers every genre and period, from the 50s to the present. This, along with the ability to “read” an audience, helps to set the mood for the perfect event. The band specializes in connecting with the audience and creating a “personal touch” with the crowds at every event. We “guarantee” satisfaction, and we will keep you and your guests entertained and on the dance floor! The Pulse Of Boston is voted 2010 and 2011 “Best Of Bands” by The Knot Wedding Magazine.

About

Transcending the boundaries of genre, Insigniya has hit the ground running since the band’s start in January 2009. Taking influence from a vast range of musicians, Insigniya has been breaking down barriers in creating original music that cannot be classified simply as jazz, rock, or funk. Insigniya is centered on the concept of channeling a special energy through an audience, creating a feeling of freedom and self empowerment, while giving people sounds to bob their heads and move their bodies to. This energy is found full force at shows, and getting it recorded is the ultimate goal when the band is in the studio. With a constantly growing loyal fan base, Insigniya is attracting more and more people to shows, each providing a senses-saturating experience full of high energy. In their third year, the band is unleashing their unique electro-funk-jazz sonic explorations throughout the northeast, having performed at venues, such as The Middle East Downstairs (Boston), Nectar's (Burlington, VT), Sullivan Hall (NYC), and Cafe Campus (Montreal, QC). In Summer 2011, the group made their debut on the festival circuit, performing at festivals, such as StrangeCreek & Wormtown (MA), Disc Jam (MA), Camp Coldbrook (MA), The Big Up (NY), Liberate (VT), Bella Terra (NY), Evolvefest (NJ), Heads In Harmony (ME), Magnetic Gathering (NH), and Lesphestival (NY). Insigniya is ever-increasingly devoted to creating a unique music that pushes the envelope in all genres, while sharing a collective love for music, positive progression, and good times with the masses.
