Steve Clancy and his band the easy money band we're amazing! He played music for my wedding ceremony down by the water and then the band played at the reception. We could have not asked for anything better. They went above and beyond, he even helped us pour the champagne! They got everybody up and dancing on the dance floor. They played exactly what we asked for. They turned my husband into a rock star he was up singing And dancing with the band. He was on time and very knowledgable about where to set up and what would sound the best. He announced everythibg we asked him to. The only thing we think that could have been better was if we gotta hear them longer! Thank you so much steve and the easy money band, you guys rocked and we highly recommend you to anybody that's looking for an awesome time!!

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

We hired Bucky for a High School Class Chem Free Graduation Party and his musical comedy act was a huge hit, not only among the students, but the parents as well. His interaction with his guests, versatility and improvisation with any particular group, will make for an excellent evening and many lasting memories.

You guys were absolutely incredible!! You were very professional and sounded fantastic, despite how cold it was for our outdoor party, and playing for 6 hours, you never missed a beat! The comments we heard from all of our guests were that you sounded amazing and you're a great party band! Thank you so much for making our party a huge success, it was epic!!!

I hired Lori to cater my sister's bridal shower. She always got right back to me via email/phone with any comments, concerns, questions I had. She came up with a cute and fun menu for our luau theme, including bacon wrapped pineapple, coconut shrimp and mango chicken appetizers. We also had fruit salad and potato salad in beach buckets, so cute! Doreen and Bill were right on time and got right to work. They were awesome! They were friendly, polite to everyone, and kept the food coming! Everyone loved the appetizers, which were passed. The ladies also loved that the tails had been removed from the coconut shrimp, as we all struggle with how to bite them elegantly at parties, and then what to do with the tails? So, that was very thoughtful. Doreen and Bill (our lovely waitstaff) had everything plated and ready to go right on time, and they filled anything that started to empty quickly and efficiently. They also helped clean up too. I had the pistachio fish, which was so good. A lot of people had the mango chicken too. My grandmother said it was the best key lime pie she has ever had. Everyone I checked with said the food was very good, and many people asked for her name. Could not be happier!!

I hired Dominic Sbrega to teach my son how to play upright bass. I am a very thorough researcher, so I called conductors of local orchestras and bands to try to find the best teacher for my son. I was surprised that Dom’s name came up so frequently, given that he was still in high school. However, even at his young age, he had a great local and national reputation. As a result, I decided to give Dom a chance. Though my son was studying classical music, he was also interested in jazz. Dom was adept at teaching both. Dom was extremely patient and always very clear in his instructions. Dom’s lessons managed to be both demanding yet fun. My son adored him, enjoying every second of his lessons. I could not imagine a better bass teacher.

Wicked Cool Music organized a house concert for my band. It was anything but ordinary. You'd have thought we'd played Wembley Stadium by the reception we received. The folks behind Wicked Cool Music delivered everything missing from today's music scene: a great listening room (comfy too!), a diverse array of listeners (of all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds), a multi-level media capturing for post-gig review, and a distraction-free environment that led to a top-five-of-all-time show. Their attention to organization, artist collaboration, and the narrowest details is what separates Wicked Cool Music from all other booking agencies. These fine folks work both ends of the music spectrum: they expose artists who are (at first) relatively unknown while feeding new and undiscovered music to the folks who are hungry for it. It's not about the money. It's about the music. Artists and music fans, rejoice!

Can not say enough amazing things about Lucas and the band. From the planning and coordination up to our wedding day he was a dream to work with and I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a talented, professional, and personable wedding band. He and the band learned several songs specifically for us, including a song that my maid of honor sang for our first dance. He also worked with us on some logistical challenges for moving equipment since we were planning from out of state, and came over to the venue for the rehearsal to ensure we all felt prepared. Our wedding party, family, and guests absolutely adored him and we got multiple comments about how much people enjoyed the music. We deeply appreciated his+the band's time, talent, and professionalism. Book him! You'll be happy you did.

We hired the Larry Williams Band to perform at a Corp function at the Westin, Portland ME. I was so impressed with the talent level of every member of this band! We had 'retro' theme, and they played songs from the past, as well as a vast assortment of current music. Our group hit the dance floor immediately! Larry is a true entertainer. Not only is he a talented musician, but he also engaged with our attendees all night, and got them into the party mode! The majority of people had early morning flights, but stayed up and danced to the last song. Thanks so much for making our event memorable!!

4EverFab is one of the most professional and enjoyable bands to play at my venue, The Simple Man Saloon. Our patrons are always asking me when their next show is. Do yourself a favor and book these guys. They are spot on when it comes to the sound of the Beatles.

Zach did a great job of teaching my sons guitar for about 2 years. He kept it interesting for them as they are 12 year old twins. They are going to join the middle school jazz band and they owe a big part of this to Zach and his instruction.
