Stevie and John did an awesome job with my party! They arrived on time with all of their equipment, didn't need anything from me, and were super professional so I could keep enjoying the night. Their list of songs was extensive and when my friends came up with songs not on the list, they learned them on the spot if possible! Stevie even figured out Santana's Maria, Maria at my dad's request so we could have a father/daughter dance. Everyone had so much fun that we are talking about all chipping in to make having a private band an annual fun event! Their lights when if got dark made it seem like we were in our own private club. Also, I didn't even realize it until the end of the night- they didn't take any breaks (except when the VERY dark rain clouds threatened!) so the music just kept going and there wasn't a lull in the fun. Stevie turned my fun graduation party into an amazing night!
The best thing that I did for my guitar playing ability was hiring Tim. Your first mistake (should you make it) would be to not hire him. If you're looking to improve your overall skill, do yourself the favor of working with Tim. I have been working with Tim for about 2 years now and have seen drastic improvement in my ability to play. I began as a curious beginner and am now playing at a really comfortable level. To begin, Tim is really easy going and down to earth. He easily relates to anyone, which makes it easy for him to understand your desire for different styles and reasons for playing the guitar. I previously worked with someone who only wanted to teach his style of guitar, so needless to say when I met Tim I was really happy to work with someone who was interested in what I wanted to learn and why. His guitar knowledge is so profound--he's been playing for so long that he can play and teach any style of guitar. When I'd ask about jazz guitar, or rock style vs. blues he not only was able to explain the difference between them all but also could play the styles. Tim's expertise and appreciation for music allows him to be able to teach songs from an array of genres. Not only does he know how to teach them, but he also tabs everything out along with a recording of whatever song you're working on. This was very beneficial to me as I wanted to practice my solo techniques over music that he/we created. I've never created a song before working with Tim and I have to say it was really cool. Very impressive! He supplies all the needed items at his house (amp, guitars--both electric and acoustic), effects, mic--the whole 9 yards. Here are a list of the topics we have covered over the last few years. I know there are more than I'm going to list, but this is what came to mind: -Chords, chord theory, different grips/voicings, etc. -Scales, soloing, riffs -Finger picking technique -Lots of song examples working through chord progressions, melodies, solos -Tabbed out what we worked on & sent recordings to work on rhythm, etc. Again, do the right thing for both you, your wallet, and your guitar and HIRE TIM!!
Don is a very accomplished guitarist with a wealth of knowledge. It shows that he is eager to impart his knowledge. I had my first lesson with him today and I learned so much. He incorporates music theory in to his lessons to show us why things are played the way they are and where they originated from. He was patient and very encouraging. His soloing skills are phenomenal and I am excited to learn from him. I highly recommend him to musicians of all levels. He is now my jazz guitar guru! Hail to the Guitar Chief Don!
It's always unique when the band beats the caterer to setup. I was very impressed. Very professional!
Peter provided a fabulous band, The Rockits, for a huge birthday party! They played great dance party music and didn't charge a ridiculous amount. Terrific tunes and energy from everyone in the band. Really made the party fun! I will contact him for any entertainment needs I have in the future for sure.
I hired Josh and a stand up bassist to play for a work reception and dinner. They were outstanding! I received many compliments about the music and would hire them again no question. The jazz was just lovely and they were very professional and easy going. You won't be disappointed!
Baltimore's Best Bluegrass band!! Fun, affordable great for any event.
Great Jazz group! Full of energy and skill! They shared their talent at a Benefit Comedy Show & received rave reviews!!!! I can't wait to see them again! Thank you, thank you, and thank you again and again!
The band played during the ceremony for my outdoor summer wedding in Baltimore in Aug2017. Bob and his band were very professional, easy to work with and great value for their services. Highly recommended for events large and small!
This group was the greatest band I ever hired. I can't wait to work with them again
Scott Schoem is a wonderful piano teacher who has worked with my children for four years. He is a talented musician himself who shares his skills and love of music with his students. Scott always is upbeat, patient and encouraging. My children enjoy their lessons with Scott and have learned to play piano well under his tutelage. He varies the songs they learn from classic pieces to jazz, rags and blues to holiday music to keep practice time fresh and fun.
Jonathan has played for several events for me. He is one of the most gifted piano players I have ever worked with, playing with heart and passion that lights up the room! Guests and clients are always impressed with his performances. He plays everything from Jazz and Pop, to Broadway and classical.
Great band with great sound and vocals to put you back in time!
From the first gig that I worked with Jay and Trackside, they treated me as part of the group as we worked together to create video and photos worthy of a first class regional band. He and the group have always had my requirements as a priority and keep me informed about the things necessary for me to function in My role with the band. Love working with these guys. One of the best local rock bands ever!!
Great performance! Will definitely hire again.
The New Dominion Band just played at RdV Winery for my husband's 60th birthday party. Everybody loved them! Cannot say enough great things about this band!

Bad Influence, the premier Washington, DC band, has been playing their style of blues-infused, high-energy music since 1988. Ever-growing crowds turn out for the band's scorching hot and sinfully addicting shows, which are charged with a masterful blend of sensuously rough edges wrapped in soulful smoothness, riveting rock currents and potent shots of swing and American roots music. All this is signed, sealed and delivered in a suggestive, in-your-face style guaranteed to captivate even the most stoic of mind, body and spirit. The award-winning Bad Influence features Bob Mallardi on bass and vocals, Hohner endorsed artist Roger Edsall on harp and vocals, Epiphone endorsed artist Michael "Jr" Tash on guitar and vocals, and Sonor endorsed artist David Thaler on the drums.
I take great care and pride in being a jazz pianist and performer. This begins with my own study and practice of the instrument and extends to performing live. It is vitally important to me that I provide guests and audiences with an enjoyable and memorable musical experience.
