Damian was so easy to get along with and very open to ideas. We had a very restrained budget for our very quickly approaching wedding, and he met our needs and our expectations through working with us. We loved that we were able to meet with him in person, and he's very easy to talk to which is a great aspect to have in anyone you hire. His music sounded great, and he was really just such a helpful guy and really loved to be able to do so.

Wow, the Dap Squad is amazing!!! I am terrible about following up on anything, I have a million excuses but I am making a point of sharing our experience because these guys made a regular wedding an event to remember. Jason made the experience easy and fun. He was attentive, thoughtful and mindful. The band was explosive from the first note to the last and kept blowing our mind all night. I sat back and laughed as the groomsmen all stood in amazement studying the guitarist as they drooled. These guys are world class musicians that honestly shouldn't be playing weddings, they should be on a national tour or something, but boy are we lucky they are available. Look, grab your cake, your venue, your flowers, bla bla.. Most services do the same thing and you're shopping for price right.... but the band is WORTH your time and money to get right. We checked out quite a few bands and were with our best friends when they made a mistake with his wedding band. We went and saw a showcase for a different band and watched as completely different musicians showed up to his wedding. We watched as their band literally shook hands on stage as they introduced each other before phoning in the rest of their night.... what a mistake.... DON'T MAKE HIS MISTAKE.. HIRE THE DAP SQUAD.. THESE GUYS ARE REHEARSED, TIGHT AND UNFORGETTABLE!!! Best wedding vendor choice we made. Thousands of dollars spent and we could have done the wedding in my garage and with this band it would have been an amazing wedding!!! HIRE THIS BAND it will be the best decision you make.. I promise!!

Bob was so fantastic! He customized the playlist to what I was looking for, and kept everybody on the dance floor! Hiring him for our wedding was the best thing we did! I have had several people ask me who our DJ was because they want to book him for their weddings. Thank you, Bob!!

As both a lever or pedal harpist, I play a wide repertoire of soft rock, classic rock, country ballads, show tunes, Celtic, classical, new age, religious, and holiday music for any occasion. I perform as solo harpist or duo with piano, flute, or another harpist. I love to surprise listeners with how I can make a harp "talk." With pianist, Sharon Planer, we are "Royal Event Musicians". We have a unique repertoire of classical and contemporary music.

Best DJ ever, and I'm not even joking! He helped keep us on schedule (in a great way, very friendly and looking to help) as well as played a ton of songs off the (very large and intimidating) list we gave him of songs special to us. His setup was great and the sound quality was exceptional. Great lights, great gear, all around genuinely nice guy. 10/10, would highly recommend. Also, you know how some receptions, the music is too loud? the decibel level was PERFECT. Easy to work with, nice guy. Definitely a great choice for anyone looking to have a great reception. (which should be everyone)

Who is Les Izmoore? Accomplished musicians in their own rights, the members of Les Izmoore have each been around the musical block, as well as the country, as performers and sidemen. Hailing from such far-flung regions as the back-water bayous outside of White Bear Lake, Minnesota, the mountainous terrain of La Crosse, Wisconsin, the lawless frontier of Fergus Falls, the cultural mecca that is Stillwater and the main streets of Houlton, this band, initially configured as a quartet, played their first date as a band a couple of summers ago, instantly becoming a trio when the (long since forgotten) second guitarist failed to show. It was at that gig on the shores of White Bear Lake, amid the sunbathers and pounding surf, that Les Izmoore discovered the secret to their sound that "Less is more." Guitarist Nick Hall's unabashed vocal narratives and sparkling guitars combined with Brian Beauchamp's crafty percussion hooks and Mike Brueske's smart bass playing to spark a bevy of beautiful and very often rocking tunes. Les Izmoore features the wizardly keyboard and vocal talents of (Doctor) Phil Kadidlo whose philosophical approach shifts the band's center of gravity in a subtle, yet profound way. Recently, Les has added a fifth official member, Greg Wollan. Greg has toured extensively as an original music artist based out of Nashville and has put out eight CDs of his own material. Greg completes the group with his stratospheric vocals and searing guitar lines, in addition to adding percolating Hammond underpinnings when called upon to do so. Mike Brueske, the bass player of the group, puts it this way, "Our goal as musicians is to remind people that good music is good for you, and the deeper the groove the better." Lately, we've been hitting the 1970s for the richest and deepest grooves. The benefits have proven to be enormous, and the people dig it! Fans of Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Crowded House, Steely Dan and the Beatles will appreciate music that is familiar but fresh as interpreted through Les' perspective.

I realize that every event is unique and wonderful! I go the extra mile to understand the client's wishes and design my music to capture the theme and mood of each event. I have an extensive repertoire of music for all occasions including pop, jazz standards, swing, Broadway, light classical, movie theme songs, new age, music from all decades, and wedding music. If you have unique requests, I love learning new music! I have twenty years experience performing live piano music for corporate and private events. I am an event pianist for weddings and special occasions. I render heartfelt piano music for funerals and memorial services, and festive piano music for Christmas and holiday parties. No piano? No problem! My portable piano and sound system is perfect for intimate gatherings or large venues. I can perform at on-site office parties, in-home dinner parties, and outdoor weddings. My silent portable generator allows me to perform at remote sites that have no access to electricity (microphone option available). I perform with a variety of solo musicians by special request, vocalists, duos or ensembles for piano, harp, violin, strings, flute, clarinet, and trumpet. I serve Minneapolis, St. Paul and central Minnesota including St. Cloud, Alexandria, and the Brainerd resort area. I have the KEYS to make your event sparkle with music!
