We had an engagement party for two of my kids (25/30) and it turned out great. Stevie was so accommodating and professional. People enjoy the ability to request songs from his extensive catalog. And I got to jam with him on two songs. I'll be sure to hire him again for future functions!
So easy to work with, super sweet and very accommodating! Our residents loved her and couldn't stop talking about how wonderful she sounded! They even got up to sing along while she was playing one of their favorite songs. I will definitely be hiring Brooksley again for our events!!
Don knows his stuff, he's easy to get along with and overall a really nice guy. He has an impressive repertoire of musical skills and a lifetime of experience in music to draw from. As far as instruments he can play a little bit of everything, he can basically teach you any instrument you'd find in a regular rock band, folk, country, pop, blues etc. He's probably most proficient on the guitar and piano but he also knows quite a lot about vocals. If you struggle with theory he does a great job demystifying some of the fundamentals of music theory that are useful to beginners. Whether you're an absolute beginner or long time musician Don will be able to help you out. Highly recommend.
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!!
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!!
Brian was great to work with for our surprise birthday party. Will definitely hire him again for our next event.
Steve played for our daughter's wedding!! He was so helpful in helping us choose just the right music to make her ceremony everything she wanted!! When our next daughter marries will will be sure and contact him and hopefully he will be free! We have also enjoyed listening to him when he plays at other locations. He is easy to contact and is very responsive to all my emails and prompt to wedding . He sounded fantastic and was a big part of the ceremony! Very personable and great musician.
This group was the greatest band I ever hired. I can't wait to work with them again
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.
Baltimore's Best Bluegrass band!! Fun, affordable great for any event.
Rags to Riches played for our church's car show last year. They performed a well-balanced set, incorporating musical favorites from the 70's, 80's, and 90's. The members of the band conducted themselves with a high degree of professionalism: they were punctual, well-prepared, and courteous, making for a family-friendly atmosphere. We had a great a GREAT experience, and I would certainly use the band again!
What a treat! Outstanding performance by truly talented group that knows their profession. All night everyone was finger snapping, singing along and enjoying the sounds of this magnificent band! I will definitely be booking them again for our annual event next year! Please check them out. You won't be disappointed! Andre Ford Vice President Empact Ministries
AJ Victoria is probably the best drummer I have ever worked with, and he is very patient in explaining the things that need to be said.
Mike did a fantastic job as the musician at our wedding ceremony. He was able to play acoustic versions of the songs we wanted better even though they weren't on his list of recommended songs. We had multiple guests come up to us afterwards to say he did a great job. Mike was quick to respond to any emailed questions and he plays gigs in the area so we were able to check him out before signing the contract with confidence. With all of the other moving parts involved in planning an outdoor wedding at a family farm, it was great knowing that our music was covered by a professional who showed up on time, performed well, and was a very good sport about the hot and buggy weather. Thanks again Mike!
I was an adult beginning piano student of Penny's in New Haven for a couple years until I moved, even though her other students were young. At first I was embarrassed because I'd wait a few minutes for my lesson and hear like a 12 year old or so, playing a big Beethoven Sonata or something, and then I'd be in there as an adult playing maybe a few of those level 1 or 2 pieces. But I can't imagine how anyone could stay embarrassed around Penny A.. She's sweet and seems to have a way of helping people feel good about themselves. But she's not the type you'd want to catch you slacking off because she cares so much and is generous so you'd feel very bad about slacking off. She also didn't treat me as a little old lady with limited music abilities. I think she cared as much about me and my progress as she did about that young prodigy I mentioned, for example. I looked forward to my lesson. And the kids before and after my lesson were relaxed and jokey and they seemed to like her as much as I did. But of course I can't speak for them! This thing says I'm supposed to say something went wrong. Probably nothing that wasn't my own fault. Only thing I can think of, maybe she'd always give me and other students a little extra time, so if your lesson is maybe during the second half of her day, you might have to wait 10 minutes, never over 15 minutes, for your lesson. I didn't mind though. Penny A taught very well.. I'm really happy to read music and play so much on my piano that before had been collecting dust. It impresses my family, too!
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!!
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!
David Bach and and his band did and outstanding job for our corporate dinner with 120 guests. Our performance included a female singer who was also excellent. Many guests mentioned they were impressed with the performance. David is very professional. It was a pleasure to work with him.
