My son had been taking classical guitar lessons for a few years and was bored with his group class. Patrick was a breath of fresh air and was great with our 8 year old. He is very patient and listens to what his student's interests and goals are. Patrick is an excellent teacher and all around great musician himself! I highly recommend him as a guitar instructor for someone of any level!
Erika is a wonderful teacher who is not only encouraging, kind, a GREAT musician, and a friend, but someone who knows a lot about her art and gives clear tips and instructions on how to make yourself a better musician as well. I would reccommend Erika to anyone!
Matt played guitar and sang at a celebration of life for my father. His voice is amazing! Many of the guests commented on how good he was after the service was finished. I highly recommend him and will hire him again if I am in need of a musician.
I contacted Robert last minute to be my outdoor wedding ceremony musician after my previous musician canceled. Robert was so accommodating and kind! He didn't know a few of the songs I wanted for the procession of the parents and the recessional, but quickly learned them. He is incredibly responsive over email and even made time to meet with me in-person a few weeks before the ceremony to review the order of events and the styling of the songs. I was able to hear multiple samples of the songs I wanted and was able to provide feedback on if I wanted vocals, etc. He played piano, but also recommended that I have guitar for my Bridesmaid processional- so he was able to switch from piano to guitar during the ceremony. So glad he suggested it! Somewhere Over the Rainbow was exactly how I imagined it - upbeat and light! He set up all the equipment well beforehand and even let two family friends use it to do a solo. The speakers and sound were great for an outdoor ceremony. I was really worried before finding Robert, but he took care of it all. I highly recommend his services for a wedding. It was a pleasure working with him- which is not the case all the time when planning a wedding. So thank you, Robert!
Well versed musical artist. Prepared, professional and relaxed. The single recorded was well practiced and rehearsed by Amanda and pianist Nick, before stepping in the studio. A pleasure to work with and a marvelous unforgettable experience.
They were fantastic. They know all the requested songs, they are outstanding musicians, and everyone was excited by their performance. They are outstanding professionals, and we highly recommend them . They really made our party a success.
Krista Brubaker is the most fine tuned musician I know. She attains the perfect balance of musicality and artistic expression. Listening, watching, and working with Krista is a great joy and reflects God's presence."

Paul played the electric violin at our wedding and did an amazing job! We chose some very unique songs to play at our wedding and he was very open to learning the music in order to accommodate what we were looking for! He also showed up to the venue early on the day of the wedding in order to get everything set up and ready to go on time. Paul is an excellent musician and is definitely someone I would recommend to anyone looking for a musician for their wedding!
Vinnie did An incredible job for our event. He was an excellent musician wonderful singer and kept the evening fun and upbeat even included some of the guest into the show. I would highly highly recommend him. Thanks again!!!
The band is very professional. By this I mean in every aspect. All of the musicians are very experienced and understand what is important to my venue. Not only are they excellent musicians, but they also promote their shows as well as my venue every time they play. This makes them a great value for me every time they perform. I highly recommend them for any event or venue.
Tish brought tears to my eyes at the altar! I was referred to Tish by a friend as I was planning my wedding; considering that my husband and I are both from Detroit and had only recently relocated to St Louis, we didn't have a clue where to look. I was however, very particular about some unique song selections that I had seen performed on YouTube and desperately needed a 5-piece band with two singers to create.
After reaching out to Tish, she made me instantly comfortable. She understood my vision and put together a group of musicians that were extremely professional and prepared. Tish offered excellent suggestions for song selections during my service and attended two meetings at the church with me to get the layout and meet the coordinator. She stayed in regular communication with me for almost a year, bouncing off great ideas and keeping me calm.
When my big day came and all of our guests from Detroit arrived to our ceremony, Tish literally brought the roof down. Her rendition of Total Praise was so stirring that there were whoops and shouting among our guests. Tish sings with so much power and beauty. EVERYONE was talking about her at the reception and I've had friends out of state ask if they can fly her in for special occasions. Her voice is an absolute blessing to behold and she has the heart and professionalism to match.
I can't adequately express my happiness and gratitude for having had Tish take part in our wedding ceremony. When we watch the video now and share with family, everyone asks to rewind her solos a few times before we move on!
OddsLane is a uniquely blended mix of driving rock and roll riffs and solid grooves with an overall pop sensibility. They create music that fuses diverse influences from a wide range of styles but maintains the integrity of what has become their own original
The band primarily focuses on the material of singer/songwriter Doug Byrkit, who in 2003 co-founded the group with longtime musical partner Brian Zielie. Doug and Brian are continuing their musical partnership with their first album as OddsLane the 2012 release entitled Dark Matters.
