James was very helpful, professional and flexible with our recent soundtrack for a puppet show for Discovery Place museum. We have always done live performances, so had not spent much time in a studio. James and our accompanist were new to the needs of puppet soundtracks, so we all had a learning curve, but the resulting soundtrack does not show that. James gave good feedback and suggestions, and was a very calming and supportive presence. His studio was comfortable, welcoming and well equipped. We have another soundtrack for Discovery Place coming up, and I plan to use him again. -- Pamela Shook, Blue Moon Puppets, Charlotte

We hired Randall to play a pool party at a luxury apartment community and he was a hit! We host events regularly but this was our first time using live music and the vibe he helped create was absolutely perfect. The music choices were right on for the crowd, he even broke into a few versus of "The Wheels on the Bus" when a few of our younger residents arrived. We are planning to use live entertainment at more events in the future and will definitely be giving Randall a call to return. Thank you so much for helping to make this event one of our most successful ever!

We hired West to perform for a 40th anniversary party for our patents and he exceeded our expectations in every way. His initial responsiveness to our inquiries addressed any questions we had in an extremely timely and thorough manner. West showed up early for the performance and was ready to go on time. He was very flexible and blended into the party well, stopping the music without us asking when we spoke to the group. He played a great setlist that matched the mood of the party without any input from us. West is a very professional, personable and talented entertainer. His singing and guitar playing seem effortless and sound great. You will not be disappointed. Hire West and let him take care of everything. You'll be glad that you did.

I have only met with the instructor once, so I can't give much of a review, but from what I've seen and the little I know, I think he will be a good fit for me. Additionally, I saw him play in a band locally, and they are really good, so I feel confidant in his ability.

I highly recommend! I see Jay play whenever he has a gig. Not only is he an accomplished and extremely tasteful solo performer, his jazz big band and trio are top notch. Our local music scene is truly lucky to have him.

What an honor and privilege it was to have Mike play for a fundraiser I was chairing. This guy is AMAZING! Arrived early, tracked me down (blowing up balloons at the time!), asked for information on the event so he could help promote throughout the evening, gave us plenty of opportunities to get on stage & make announcements-I could go on & on. Most importantly - his music was just perfect for that evening! An eclectic mix of music genre to say the least and it was ALL very good. Oh..... and he even played "Queen" which warranted a standing ovation after he finished! Mike - you ARE the man! I will be contacting you again to be sure....

These guys put on a great show. It was a perfect act for the city festival that I manage. Being faced with the difficult task of finding entertainment to please an audience with wide musical interests, I found The Folsom Prison Gang to be a perfect selection as most people really enjoy the music of Johnny Cash. I received more positive feedback from people about The Folsom Prison Gang versus all of the other bands combined.

My wife and I were at Buddy's last night and saw your show. Just want you to know it was the most fun we've had in a long time and yes we do need to get out more lol, but seriously, you did a great job with the audience and keeping things flowing. My wife was the blonde that you kept trying to get up on stage, she sang with one of the two Army guys that were sitting behind us. They sang a horrible Barry Manilow song. Just a little hint, my wife is a store manager and the last thing she wants to do is socialize, but after a few drinks her inhibitions go away. On the weekends we have our own "house party" where we play music and she will sing. She literally has a photographic memory when it comes to lyrics, which still amazes me to this day. And she raps pretty darn good for a white girl too, and she's a New Yorker, but don't hold that against her lol. She can kick out some Jason Mraz and Blues Traveler, she does an awesome job with their song Hook and challenged the Sgt. Major to learn it for next week haha. So hopefully we will see you on Wednesdays, thats our typical night because of the 50 cent wings. This is only the second time in our sixteen years of being together that she's done Karaoke, you did a great job and we had a fantastic time. Also love the trumpet guy, my wife thanked him for playing and told him my dad played trumpet for years with my mom in a variety band when I was young and has since passed and his playing reminded us of him. She said a tear welled up in his eye, I understand he follows you from event to event. That's awesome! Anyway, I'll introduce ourselves next time and just wanted to say thank you for entertaining us last night, it's a memory we will have for a long, long time! Jeff and Dawn Arwine

My wife and I hired Jazz Regolution for our wedding reception and we couldn't be happier about the result. The band was professional, accommodating, and very talented. Our guests had a lot of fun with the dancing and had many good things to say about the quality of the live music. I highly recommend Jazz Revolution for a wedding reception or any similar event.

I have know Peter for 10 years as a classical violinist and as a fiddler in a blue grass band. He is very skilled and technical in many music styles. He doesn't just enjoy playing the violin, but enjoys what the violin does and the essence of the instrument. Because of the variety in his talents and passion, he makes an excellent teacher and offers perspective that you won't find in other teachers.

This man is the best when it comes to playing music. He can play anything he puts his hands on. He self taught himself how to play the Pedal Steel Guitar. He has been in so many bands and has traveled alot thru out the years. He plays all kinds of music such as Bluegrass, Country, and Southern Rock. He has a passion for music and he always has. If you haven't heard him play you should check him out for yourself.

All of the above! They are excellent musicians, to start with. They added requested first dance selections with pleaure and delivered them with excellence. People loved dancing to their music and also listening to them. They worked with us to plan a special surprise send off that blew my daughter and her husband away. They even worked in an unplanned special request from the groom and were great! Their love of what they do is infectious. Everyone - from the 20-somethings to those 60+ loved them and their music. If this sounds like gushing, so be it, but it's just the simple truth.

I can not get this raving review written fast enough!!!!! We selected Kids in America for our December 2nd company Christmas party....so glad we did! Our very first contact was with Mike the drummer. He was so friendly and willing to answer questions about how to plan and progress. When party time arrived they were courteous and professional Their set up was like clockwork. What a selection of music! They were amazing to watch because it was a show!! That really met our needs because folks in our company do not always know each other. Once folks got comfortable they were up on there feet dancing. You will be so happy with this band. They are amazing! USE THEM!!!! Julie Woodie Charlotte,NC
