Steve and his trio have played for our company holiday party for years. They do an outstanding job! Excellent quality and highly professional. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great band to entertain them!
Our oldest son has taken lessons with Rachelle since he was in the fourth grade and he is now going into the eight grade. While taking lessons from Rachelle, he was accepted and joined St. Cecilia's Music band. Our youngest son, who is going into the 6th grade, has taken lessons from Rachelle and without her teaching he would have struggled his entire first year in band. Both boys enjoy their lessons with Rachelle and I enjoy the expectations she has of them but also the fun she makes the lessons.
This is the greatest country band I have seen in Michigan in some years. They are high engery and it is obvious they enjoy entertaining with the interaction they have with the fans.
We had Charlie for a backyard party and I was very happy with Charlie's set and he was a great guy. He plays Classic Rock and this is his strong point and gift. He is a great guitar player and his voice had a wide range. I would have Charlie play again and thank him for his time with us. Great Job Charlie!
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 Rockford Symphony Orchestra hired Brassworks to perform at its annual fundraising gala. Mark Olen is a remarkable person, an excellent musician, and a consummate professional. He was very prompt in responding to any inquiries we had, and flexible in programming. My organizing committee members have heaped praise upon me for my good taste in selecting Brassworks. Dozens of attendees commented on how much they enjoyed the music at our event. The musicians were spirited and engaging. I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Olen again. Anything he says he can do, he will do well. Overall, an A+.
David Stone has been involved with the arts whether it be acting, singing or playing music since he was 5 years old. He is versatile, and comfortable in all genres from classic show tunes to modern day alternative folk/rock. He has appeared in many productions and was featured in lead roles as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof and Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls. He also performed with Central High School Choral Aires in Europe and throughout Michigan. He is an accomplished percussionist, plays keyboards, bass and guitar in contemporary bands and has excellent stage presence. He has performed many times for The Traverse City Film Festival, StonesHouse fundraisers, and countless private functions. David also works well with young adolescents and is an excellent teacher. He demonstrated this ability even when he played basketball in high school and was a role model for younger players while they attended sports camps. He demonstrates the same patience and encouragement with younger, aspiring music students. His many original compositions are truly melodic and reflect the sensitivity and deep emotion that touches the soul of his audience.
I had this band for my wedding day! They were amazing and made my wedding perfect! Everything was first class and I could not believe they were in my budget. Even my guests could not believe there was a live band either with eleven people! People are still talking about it and I constantly hear compliments. They were very professional and understanding. Everything I asked they did - including learning 2 new songs the week of the wedding, and working with my budget (which ended up being comparable to wedding DJs) I would love to use them again and I recommend them to anyone!
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!!!!!

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.
Booked gigs for my band and others, does nice marketing pieces and flyers. Helped produce songs and jingles for me as well.
Ultrafab Band played at my wedding! They are an AMAZING group! They are fun, interactive and their song list is the best! I would highly recommend them for ANY event! Keep Rockin' Guys!!!!
What a great band! Fun and professional.
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.
