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!
It's always unique when the band beats the caterer to setup. I was very impressed. Very professional!
I have hired musicians for over 25 years for different events. Mark was one of the most talented, professional, gracious and kindest person I have met. He played for a group of 60. The reviews from our guests were unlike anyone we have had in the past. We will certainly have him back in the near future. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a harpist.
I attended my best friends wedding last September and was blown away by Xen Live's production, that we booked them for my sister's wedding this past January! Working with Xen Live was effortless. I emailed them and Jay ( the owner of XL) got back to me the same day. The consultation was thorough. I told him we wanted music from the 60's 70's and 90's. When we arrived at the venue to do some last final touches, XL was already set up and ready to go! Phew! One less thing we had to worry about on the special day. We had a few songs specifically requested by my sister (to be played at specific moments) Jay was right on queue and didn't miss a beat! Thank you So much XL for making my sister's day so special! We'll be seeing you this fall!
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.
Kevin Jones has done incredible work with our ten-year old. Our son has only been taking lessons for four months, but he has already surpassed what the school orchestra is working on. Mr. Jones is really easy to reach if you need to cancel or reschedule, and uses an easy, pay-on-line system. Mr. Jones is so very mellow, and when my boy gets frustrated, he is amazing at bringing my son back to task. Lastly, imagine an accomplished, professional cellist playing duets with your child in your living room . . . It will bring tears to your eyes. Amy O'Donnell
Sally is an excellent music teacher! Very responsive, prompt, and professional. Good duet accompanist!
I am the head of the vocal dept. at Hillsdale College in MI. Sadie was an accompanist in my studio for four years. She was always prepared for my singers and spent time outside of lessons to help them and rehearse with them. She is extremely musical and is an excellent sight reader. She has a very affable personality and is very fun to be around. I would recommend her for any accompanying job as well as teaching of younger students. She is relialbe and well versed in much vocal music as well as piano literature. Sometimes she takes on too much and that is the only thing that I would have her work on to better her performance. That was in a college setting which can be very stressful when combined with other studies. In the professional world I don't think that would be a problem. She is a very well rounded musician and would be able to excel in many venues. I recommend her most highly.
I couldn't have been happier to have David play at my wedding! Nothing but good things to say about my experience with him. He was so easy to communicate with leading up to my event and was more than happy to accommodate anything I needed. I can't say how many people have given compliments on how much they loved listening to him perform. He is extremely talented and has an amazing voice. Not to mention very kind and professional. I would hands down recommend him to anyone who is looking to hire a musician. We didn't get a chance to see him because he played our ceremony and cocktail hour, but we plan to go see him perform as soon as we can!!
Glenn Baker is an absolute professional--from our first communication, through planning the music for our Class Reunion, up until the end of the evening of our event. He "got" our music perfectly -- and many folks commented on how good he was. He was extremely responsive to all of our questions, provided great value for her service and was punctual. We LOVED his lighting display -- made for a very festive, but not intrusive, atmosphere. Thanks so much, Glenn!
Billy is a very talented musician.
Steve was great for our wedding cocktail party. He played "our" song beautifully and for hours kept the music going. His guitar and singing skills are great.
Janet Greene was my son’s private lessons teacher for almost ten years. She worked with him as a 4th grader until after graduation. His love for his viola and music is in large part due to her passion for music and her gentle guidance to the nuances of music and playing. She also encouraged him to practice every day and we have fond memories of him walking around the house every evening playing his instrument. She often found other venues for him play which gave him confidence in his ability to play in front of others. I believe that one reason he is still playing his instrument in college is the love for music she helped him develop. I highly recommend her as an instructor, tutor and person!
Rich was so easy to work with. He is so talented and my guests loved his music. His acoustic guitar was the perfect music for our ceremony. I would be happy to hire him again.
