Mike is a terrific guitar instructor. He's organized, providing easy-to-follow lesson plans and he tailors the instruction to your interests and pace. Another bonus: he's a working musician and he recently hosted an open blues jam session where his students played with his band Crooked Dice. How cool is that? We (students) got a chance play with other musicians. Isn't that what music is all about?

Rock It Man's owners responded quickly and with thoroughness when the client came to them at the last minute. I am glad I was available, as it was a great gig! I was treated professionally and paid well.

Tim Price was a valued member of our band for over 10 years. His creativity, work ethic and professionalism was always displayed at the highest level. My two favorite things about Tim are his entertaining stage presence and his willingness to be a team player at all times. In addition to these qualities, Tim is a good Christian and a great guy! He comes with my highest recommendation. Paul Shane Banks & Shane Atlanta, GA

I didn't actually work with them but I did go see them many times they are one of the greatest bands I have ever heard. They're very professional yet you can feel that they're having a good time doing what they do which makes it more enjoyable to listen to them. The a very outgoing and they come and say hello to a lot of people. They often play at the schooner tavern in Minneapolis whiskey Junction sometimes to Bloomington eagles club and then in crystal at rostemos. So if you ever wanna go out and see a good band look up back alley and check him out I guarantee you will like them.

I wanted to let you know how much fun you and your band provided that evening. You guys were a hit and made the evening an absolute blast. The compliments from everyone for the great music were overwhelming. Laura's number one priority for her wedding was to have great music, which you absolutely provided beyond all of our expectations. We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the attention you gave us regarding all our questions and concerns, from the set up for the wedding ceremony, all the way through to lighting, sound, and band members. We will for sure look to see where you're playing, and wouldn't hesitate recommending your band for other parties, hopefully for one of ours in the future. Thanks again, Bill & Kristy McClellan

I wanted to play bass in a band, and had some previous knowledge of piano. I contacted Hugh about lessons, and we worked from there, bringing me from essentially ground zero to now, where I'm gigging with a group on a regular basis. Hugh also invited me to see him perform with his group, Miss Fairchild, and it's obvious that he's a master of the instrument. It gives me a lot to look forward to, and to desire to work hard for. One of the best parts about studying with Hugh is that he is personable. A lot of music teachers, in my experience, can kind of have a weird vibe, but Hugh is funny and cool. I'd recommend him to anyone.

We were recently lucky enough to have the Neighborhood Trio play at our wedding, which was about 80 adults at the Bachelor Farmer. We didn't want a DJ or top 40 band, as we were aiming for more of a cool, lounge vibe where our guests could enjoy a drink and some music but still have a conversation. After all, many had flown across the country to celebrate and visit with us and each other ... We weren't sure how to go about searching for musicians to fit this bill, but with the Neighborhood Trio we stumbled into the perfect solution. Their music is awesome, and it set the perfect mood for an awesome party! Nothing against Journey covers, but if you are looking for a slightly more sophisticated option, look no further. As their website said, their music is "perfect with a dry martini" ...

To use an acronym to describe Les Izmoore, I would say WTF! (Wonderfully Talented Ferpormers!!!) These guys were Led Zeppelin before there was a dirigible. And who's more popular...J.C., or the Beatles??? Neither, it's Les Izmoore by a long shot. It ain't even close. While you may never hear Lez Izmore and Eye Candy in the same sentence, these guys are all exceptional musicians and amazing performers. Unlike bands I've been in...these guys start and end at the same time. Incredible, right? I've always wondered why I couldn't do that! If you want a great band, at a great price, that is better than you could have hoped for...these guys are it. At some point, they'll have to change their name to Moore Izmoore. Cheers music fans...these guys will make your day!

We really enjoyed Mary as our children's piano teacher. Our daughter is a fluent piano player and uses her musical talent In a band every week. My sons received the musical training they needed to be proficient with drums. Mary is kind, gentle and encouraging. She is prepared for her lessons. We highly recommend her.

They are a husband-and-wife duo with an option for a full band. In one week, down in Eureka Springs, AR, on tour, they played a blues festival (Bikers, Blues, and BBQ festival), a country bar (Chelsea's), and a jazz lounge (the Voulez-Vous). There's a bit of chemistry going on, and they are enjoyable to watch and listen to. They are a perfect fit for any occasion!
