Gerald and his affiliated Motown band, KGB, played at a party at our home for my husbands 70th Birthday party. TGerald was incredibly professional helping me plan and communicate leading up to the event. He was friendly and flexible accommodating some minor changes during the planning process. Gerald, along with the KGB band, were all timely, friendly, and when they started playing the crowd went crazy!! Everybody danced and sang on our outdoor patio. The quality of their music and voices was amazing. You would think you're at a professional concert, complete with the coordinating outfits, stage presence, lighting and sound. We are going to plan events just to have them back. You will not be disappointed with Gerald on any level. On top of it all he is super polite and pleasant. Everything you need when stressing about an important event, Gerald takes the worry out of the music and entertainment.

Jonathan played for my wedding which was in my parents' home, streamed live over the internet. He played my parents' piano during the ceremony and then switched to playing guitar during our dinner. Having both those talents was wonderful. He brought a play list, and followed the script we gave him on when to play and when to pause - very attentive. Jonathan was on-time, played well - loud enough to appreciate but not so loud as to drown out our conversation. He was very quiet - which to me is neither good nor bad. :-) We would hire him again. My mother kept asking me where I found him. Thanks Thumbtack and Jonathan!

We used Joe for both our wedding ceremony and reception. He did such an awesome job. He played his guitar and sang for our ceremony music, which was so beautiful. My husband and I did not give Joe a lot of direction on what we wanted for our reception just told him what kind of music we liked/disliked and Joe did such a great job transforming that into a playlist that kept people entertained and on the dance floor. Thanks Joe for creating a romantic, enjoyable, and exciting environment for our day!

The Band was awesome they played at our daughter's Wedding Reception! They were the greatest band I have ever had play at my house. They were very professional and amazing! I would recommend El Kabong completely and would for sure call on them again! They played from 7:00pm until Midnight on our deck that is above the 6ft. fence, people driving by slowed down to look. They also had a DJ for in between sets and after he played well after 1:00am. Ron Muniz came over a few weeks early to see where they would be playing the day of the Reception they were a little early and there set up was awesome! We used to have annual parties this was the best we had neighbors,friends and family calling and saying how outstanding everything was and that they were a part of it! The Reception was July 5, 2014 a Holiday weekend and they made it the best ever! Love El Kabong!!!!!

I can't even explain how great this band is! John and the guys are awesome musicians and one heck of a cohesive unit. They aren't just some band that got together to make a business. They're buddies who have all played together for a number of years and it really shows. My husband and I went to see them last November when we were looking for a wedding band and we were just blown away! We had so much fun that night listening and dancing at the bar. We couldn't believe how good they were (you never know with "wedding bands")! The entire rest of the time that we were planning our wedding The Highballs were the biggest thing that we were looking forward to. At the wedding, we had a blast dancing to them all night. The dance floor was packed with all ages and we couldn't stop smiling. Several of our friends (as well as my husband) are musicians and our friends kept commenting on how "tight" the band was. You can tell that they enjoy playing, they enjoy playing together, and they enjoy playing music to make people dance. John and Niko also played acoustic guitar for our ceremony and it was just perfect - they even learned a totally new song for us. One final note: during our First Dance, a double rainbow suddenly appeared in the sky above us. We saw it out the barn door and just ran outside to see it with all of our guests. The poor band! We left them hanging! What did they do? The started up the chorus to "The Rainbow Connection!" That's how good this band is, folks!

The picture of the lovely bride and handsome groom in the military uniform is my son and new dughter-in-law at their wedding reception in the Union on the campus of Michigan State University five years ago. I can say without a doubt that the Rhythm Section Jazz Band was the best wedding band I have had the pleasure of hearing. Song choices were great, music great, wonderful personalities in the band. They really helped make that warm July day last in my memory. Five years and three babies later, you can still see some of their wedding pictures on Facebook. Thanks guys and gals.

One of the fullest sounding, and most diverse bands I have ever seen. The range of music they perform is amazing. Calling them a classic rock band is too limiting, as they also play much more current music, including dance music from Pink, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, and others. It really shows that all 4 members are all incredibly talented and absolutely love to perform for a crowd. They do it all and they do it all well. They are incredibly professional, and I just can't say enough good things about Bar Code.

Hi, I am Carol Collins, music director for Thurston Community Players. Doug has coordinated the band and played the keyboard and sax for our musical the last 4 years. The band is quite talented and well received. They adjusted tempos, rhythm and volume as needed to work with the actors. I would highly recommend them for any gig.
