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 have been taking voice lessons from Julie Kinscheck for over three years now and am very pleased with her as a teacher. I have a very busy schedule as a manager and she has been very flexible in making the lessons happen. These lessons have built my confidence and inspired me to perform more often because of my growth as a singer. I enjoy singing in the regular student recitals. I appreciate her patience helping me to learn to read music, improve my breath support, tone and more. She also has a good listening ear when I need to talk. She motivates me to want to practice to be my best. I also see she is an excellent role model for her younger students, always willing to expand her own horizons by learning and then teaching them songs which they want to perform. She genuinely cares about her students and takes a personal interest in their lives. You can tell she has a passion for teaching. I highly recommend her!

John is an amazing instructor. He knows how to engage while exposing and teaching my daughter in a fun way. I would highly recommend his lessons for anyone who is looking for a genuine, kind hearted instructor that will teach you music in a fun relaxed way.

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!

Tom was absolutely outstanding to work with from beginning to end! We couldn't have selected a better DJ/ musician to work with. From offering suggestions in the beginning on songs to playing live music at the wedding. Our friends and family haven't stopped talking about him! If you want to get everyone out on the dance floor he is your man! He was so great to work with and very responsive! Some people at the wedding couldn't believe it was him singing when they heard him! Definitely book him for your wedding you will not be disappointed! He helped make our day even more perfect!

Tristan is an absolute joy to work with, and I can't recommend him highly enough for his professionalism, attitude, energy, and of course, the music he makes. Professionalism: Tristan is a prompt communicator who listened attentively to our ideas. Not only did he learn the initial music we had in mind, but he also researched similar music at our request and made suggestions that led to an even more beautiful final piece for our wedding ceremony. He collaborated seamlessly with the other musician we hired, and even though they didn't know each other it sounded as if they'd been performing together for years! He communicated clearly and promptly with our DJ, who has since reached out to tell us he would like to work with Tristan again (and we see why!). Attitude and energy: Tristan is an upbeat, gentle and kind young man with a positive approach to problem-solving. We had a few technical concerns and last-minute tech hiccups on the day of our wedding, and Tristan rolled with the punches so that no one could tell. The product (that music!): Tristan's guitar-playing skills are exquisite. His attention to detail shines most in his music; even in a large outdoor space, he played with intricate finger work and dynamics that made his songs float through the space. His playing is emotional, thanks in part to his expertise in choosing pieces that are moving and meaningful, as well as his ability to connect to the music and play with intention. Tristan didn't just play the music for our ceremony - his creative and collaborative spirit enhanced the entire feel of the day and made it even more magic for us. Thank you, Tristan!!

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!

Jose is an exceptional photographer and videographer! His passion for people and capturing the best moments throughout each project shows in his work! I met Jose in a multicultural music community, where he often captured high quality photographs during live events for the music organization. I would recommend Jose for any individual or group looking to capture special moments in their lives. He is a perfectionist and detailed-oriented person and you can see his unique talent in the pictures and videos he takes. Excited to see his business grow in 2018!

Brandy played at our fundraising event last month and they were absolutely fantastic!! From the moment they sang their first song, the guests were engaged and on the dance floor having a great time. The guests were commenting on how they sounded just like the original artists! They are a very energetic band and I would highly recommend them for your event!

Hiring Groove Authority was probably the best decision we made for our wedding. They had all of our guests on the dance floor (even the ones who never get up there) and everyone raved about how great they were. The female lead singer, Jennie, has an incredible voice, everyone thought our first dance song was a recording until they saw her with the microphone. My husband and I live out of state and hired them without getting to see/hear them in person - we are so glad we did. Paul was a pleasure to work with, very responsive, and made everything flow so smoothly even with a few last minute changes. Hire them, you won't regret it!

Jazzin' About Town played at our Engagement party in a quaint setting. The volume was perfect allowing guests to enjoy the music and still engage in conversation. Our guests were impressed with the professionalism and class of both Jean and her musicians. I would certainly recommend them for any intimate gathering. Additionally knowing that we were able to customize our experience with a few musicians or many to accommodate the space available. We have already booked Jazzin' About Town for our upcoming summer party.

    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”
