The first two lessons have been a lot of fun. Mike had me return a small questionnaire after the first lesson. On it were questions for students about the style of guitar that appeals to them, styles that don't, songs they would like to learn, aspects of the guitar they find frustrating, and questions about other aspects of music that may interest them (recording, bands). These questions helped me frame the kind of music I want to play and produced goals for music and techniques to learn. In lessons Mike is patient, full of good advice, and keeps the lesson on track. In short, Mike knows his stuff and I feel like we are off to a great start!

Rockitman was the entertainment at my wedding, and it was an absolute blast! Jon entertained young and old alike, and the dance floor was going all night! He was funny, engaging, and super easy to work with. You pay a bit more for live music than a DJ, but the quality and professionalism Rockitman delivers is far and away better than any DJ, and unlike most live bands, Rockitman is able to customize the show based on requests. I would hire them again in a heartbeat for corporate parties or any kind of event, and I’d recommend them to anyone!

Tim was AMAZING! It was a professional reception (medical staff w/ spouse and legislators). All the guests enjoyed the music, many asking how we found him and how they could book him for a future event. I'd hire Tim again in a heartbeat!

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.

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!!

Dan was extremely responsive and professional throughout the bidding and hiring experience - he made it very easy to book his services. The night of the event he was prompt and flexible with the venue set up. His performance during our cocktail hour was a show-stealer and is one of the main things that has been brought up again and again as an awesome part of the event - he chose the perfect music and played instruments that were crowd pleasers. I will definitely hire Dan again and was asked for his contact information by several of the guests. Thanks again, Dan!!!

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!

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.

BW&M will be the highlight of your party or event. Besides being phenomenal musicians, they are great people and easy to work with. Lots of bands can play great covers, but this band is stacked with 3 amazing vocalists that have a ton of energy. Great for weddings, concerts, parties, etc.

Musicians4Musicians LLP performed at my wedding at the Chanhasssen Dinner Theatre on June 20, 2015 and provided for us an atmosphere of fun, love and just plain great entertainment. I hired them before even meeting them in person because I could tell by their online videos that they were the best soul band in town. They were everything I expected and more. If you want real talent at your wedding, hire this band!! Also, very affordable!!

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!
