He is the best voice teacher I have had! He is professional but still makes lessons fun and interesting. The knowledge he has in all things music (& much more) is well beyond what you would find with a university teacher and he is always willing to share his knowledge with his students. And he plays the piano really well! I am amazed at how much my voice has improved in the time he has taught me & I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to sing.
His trio was great at our wedding cocktail hour! Would definitely hire again.
Ego Satellites have played a few gigs at events that I've organized. Their professionalism is amazing, the set list options fit almost any crowd, and the crowd interaction is top notch! If you're looking for a complete band to perform the best hits from the last 30 years, I highly recommend this group.
Our original date was rained out and Michelle was very understanding and eager to work with us to reschedule. I found her to be very personable and professional from the first introduction on Thumbtack, through the negotiations, the rescheduling and on the day of. She was great at making our guests feel welcome and she and the band performed a wide variety of music! We had a LOT of fun. I HIGHLY recommend Michelle Hawkins for your event!
Heidi is seriously one of the best things that has ever happened to me in my music career. She taught two of my three collegiate level piano classes and made a world of difference in my playing, overall musicianship, and relationship with music in general. Her genuine enthusiasm, impressive expertise, and constant professionalism are just a few of the wonderful things that she has to offer as a teacher. You can't go wrong hiring Heidi!
The KC Prime Band is THE band for people who know how to have fun!!
I've hired Sol & Jonathan for 3 parties now. They're great guys who are concerned with personalizing their service to make your event successful. Guests loved the music, karaoke (with words projected on a screen), smoke, and especially the many cool lighting effects! They really transformed the venues into a dance club, whether a basement rec room or huge fellowship room at a church. Interesting and extensive collection of music, had no trouble getting all songs requested in advance. For a preteen party, they asked for our preferences regarding what songs and language we felt were acceptable and provided radio edits (censored versions) of songs as requested.
Reasonable and professional! I was in a bind and needed a DJ to fill in at a medium sized venue with 1,000 guests. I needed a real pro and already knew that their sound engineer had designed Van Halen's systems, so I figured this was the company to represent me. I gave them a call and they were able to put together a full club package that was lower than standard package rates I know others are charging. I've used them several times since that first gig and now that I've retired from the DJ business, I can write publicly that this DJ is a great family owned company that does alot of gigs around Kansas City but also travels from Salina, Omaha, Wichita, to Columbia.
Lost Wax performed at my wedding and they were unbelievable! I cannot tell you how many people called/emailed/texted me after the wedding to find out who that band was b/c they were SO impressed. I literally do not think that I left the dance floor all night. The members of the band were incredible and they created the most fun atmosphere for the entire crowd. It was the most amazing night! If anyone is looking for a band that will get people dancing and having the time of their lives then you have to get in touch with Chris! People say that the band will set the mood of the whole night and if thats the case then the amazingly fun mood was set and exceeded by Lost Wax and their incredible energy. Best decision ever!
My daughter decided she wanted to play saxophone at the age of 15. She began learning from John around the start of the spring semester of her freshman year. By that fall, she was good enough to make the high school marching band! We've continued taking lessons from John, and she has continued to progress throughout the year. She is now capable of playing alongside other saxophonists who have been playing since Junior High. John's a professional, and his love of saxophone rubs off on my daughter. I still can't believe she's gotten to the level she's at after such a short time.
Wanda is the ideal performer for any event. Not only is her voice one of a kind and can be tailored to any event or setting, she is also a great person to be around and a lot of fun to watch perform. I have used Wanda for an event of mine and would definitely recommend her to anyone.
I have known Elizabeth for nearly 15 years. She has always strived to be the very best she can be, for herself and others. Elizabeth continues to find ways to enhance her abilities as a music professional. Elizabeth and I work closely together. I have observed her and her interactions with students, parents and colleagues. I have witnessed her students maturing in their music studies while having fun "playing" music. Elizabeth has an outstanding work / teaching ethic and has high standards for herself and those who work with her. I have, and will again, recommend Elizabeth as a private music teacher of harp, piano, guitar and music theory.
Rachel did a fantastic job at our event. She provided a nice mix of songs beforehand that we thought were perfect for all ages in our group. Her appearance and performance were professional and lovely!
Everyone enjoyed listening to the great music at the event. Would recommend Mallory She is great to work with. Very professional.
Jonathan was the DJ at my wedding. We had about 250 guests, most of whom were under 30-years old. Jonathan had just about everybody dancing nonstop! At one point our photos show at least 80-100 people breaking it down on the dance floor. Jonathan is very professional. He brought all his own equipment, which was more than enough sound-power to rock the 5000 square-foot event space. Jonathan was also very flexible and tasteful in the music he provided. There were classical 1960s love songs, all the way through everyone's favorite current singles, including remixes and Jonathan's own DJ twist. My wife(!) and I are both music lovers and musicians and we were thrilled with every aspect of Jonathan's service. I very highly recommend!
