Shane is a highly talented, versatile songwriter and performer involved in several area bands. Beyond just rocking, he has a real knack for just knowing how to fit into the groove and what a song needs. He carries these sensibilities over into his studio work at Mariner, where he is able to take raw talent and turn it into a refined and well-layered mix that compliments the artists' vision. He has done both studio and live-at-venue work for bands and solo artists that I have promoted and the results are always stellar. If you are looking to take your chops or sound to the next level, this is the guy to help you do it.

I have worked with Shane at Mariner Studios on multiple recording projects for Raleigh, NC bands The Pseudo Cowboys and Paper Dolls. The studio has plenty of quality equipment and offers a great space to capture a clean, natural sound from the instruments, whether in a live tracking or multi-tracking environment. Shane is very skilled in recording engineering, mixing, and mastering and knows how to get projects done right. Creative energy flows well during sessions here, and the final products sound polished and professional. Plus he works fast! And is a badass musician to boot!

Shane has an awesome set up in his house for all of your recording needs. Working with him has taught me so much and I have a greater appreciation for what is done behind the scenes of music production. I have also seen him perform multiple times. His positive personality and ability engage fans of all ages makes him stand out from most musicians in the area.

I'm an adult who started playing bass guitar late in life. My needs for instruction are very specific because I know exactly what my goals and desires are as a musician. Andy listened to what I wanted to accomplish and has tailored his approach to meet my needs specifically. Andy is punctual for all the lessons, and is well prepared. He is a good coach, praising my ability and improvement, while at the same time encouraging areas of weakness and offering suggestions for improvement. When I suggest a song that I want to learn, Andy takes the time to learn the song, and will provide a correct TAB to learn the music from. Andy practices songs that he doesn't know, so he can teach you and show you how the song should be played.

Andy taught my son trombone from seventh grade through high school. We were so fortunate to have such an inspiring and talented teacher who went above and beyond by coming to our house for lessons. Under his tuition my son was able to achieve placements in many All Disrict bands, first chair in the Allstate jazz band and entrance to the music program at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Andy was extremely flexible with lesson times and always reliable. Andy's amazing skills ,patience and work ethic were motivational to my son and we would highly recommend him as an outstanding teacher and person .

I have been using Andy as my bass teacher since I hired him. I started out every week but then had to move to every other because of work schedule. He is knowledgeable and is able to explain things in a way you understand. He is very flexible and patient.

Having Joe Westerlund as a drum instructor was truly a great experience. I came in as an adult looking to get back into drumming after having played as a teenager. Joe was sensitive to this and planned my lessons accordingly. After 5 minutes with him, I could tell Joe was going to be a blast to work with for half an hour per week. He was quick to cater the lessons to whatever genre of music I was interested in playing which may or may not have matched his personal tastes. Which, to be fair, it's hard to pigeonhole Joe into a specific genre given his vast experience and wide array of bands he's played and toured the world with. His positive attitude and gentle demeanor was comforting to me as a newbie to the lesson format as an adult and I found our time together to be quite enjoyable. Not to mention Joe's technical abilities and musical talents which are fantastic. If I were to recommend anyone I know, kid or adult, to a drum instructor, it would hands down be Joe Westerlund. Besides being a killer drummer, he's also a genuine, great guy.

Joe was my son's very first drum teacher. He thoroughly enjoyed each and every lesson and couldn't wait for the next one. Joe was an excellent teacher - patient, able to assess student abilities and needs, flexible, and basically able to make each lesson fun and productive. Six years later, my son is still an avid drummer, and still loves to learn. He got an excellent start thanks to Joe! if Joe hadn't moved to LA, he'd still be our teacher!

The band has played at our public events more than once and they were fabulous every time! They arrived early, set up their equipment and were ready to go ahead of time. They had a large catalog of songs and played music that fit our group perfectly, including some of their own original material. They're a great band, and their music definitely got the crowd energized! Personally, I enjoy seeing them play whenever I can, and it makes me want to dance every time I hear them. If you’re looking for a talented, fun-loving, and engaging band, Thursday’s Flight gets my vote!

Phil Deans and his band put on an awesome show backing up the Motown Review at the Imperial Centre in Rocky Mount. The band created a smooth, warm backdrop showcasing the sound that came out of Detroit--Mowtown! It'll be great to see more of the band and one of the many talented acts, Makin a Difference, who brought the evening to a powerful close. In a vastly different venue, Deans recently inspired a group of middle school students, parents, and teachers with an illuminating discussion on the importance of both pencil on paper, and calculator skills, to success in math. His motivational words almost made me want to enroll in a math class again!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting and working with Mr. Deans at the Motown Revue held this March at the Imperial Centre in Rocky Mount, NC! He was a an amazing Band Leader and a drummer with great groove in many genre's. However, it was his patience and warm heart as he worked with the musicians and all of us performers that convinced me to hire him as my Manager as I move forward into Songwriter/Recording Artist faze of my journey. He's already managed the recording session for my first song soon to be released in the Fall 2015. I feel blessed to have him on board! Jazzy Coco
