We loved having Sailing Stone perform at our farm. The band has a beautiful sound whether singing their original songs or performing a cover song. The way they harmonize together is mesmerizing. The crowd seemed to think so, too. We look forward to booking them again!

Sean and his band provided ideal lively jazz music at a local event. They were super easy to communicate with beforehand, and they played beautifully to a large very appreciative crowd. I strongly recommend them.

Soulful Sounds were the perfect choice for our son's graduation party! It was an amazing night with thunderstorms, rainbow & music ! They played to a large gathering of over a 100 people. A very professional band who adjusted to the situation and played remarkably. Highly recommend!

Marla Mase is an extraordinary event planner, creator of party magic and Producer! After having been in the business for a couple of decades and working in so many different venues, types of events, parties and performances, Marla has an incredible team. She’s amassed a phenomenal, devoted group of performers, artists, designers & caterers whom she employs at all her parties, depending on need and skill set. I have worked with Marla on several creative projects and events and had a ball working with her. She is the ultimate professional, but always works in a relaxed, easygoing fashion. She is open to discussion and will always brainstorm to bring ones vision to life. Recently she produced a Rock show and party in Tribeca for me that hosted an amazing band, along with several international actors, dancers and singers. Marla hired one of her designers to transform the old Tribeca firehouse into an underworld of sea creatures and magic. It was spectacular. The food was a beautifully abundant array of hors devours and beverages. Hailing from Tribeca and having worked in the New York area for so many years for hundreds of high-end clients, Marla is truly cutting edge. She has an eye for the unique, and is able to adapt to the vision of her client. Marla really gets the job done. She’s personable and lovely and I always feel I’m in good hands with her at the helm.

The Wayne Batchelor jazz trio was the perfect band for our gala. Each member was super talented and professional - they worked so well together and were very friendly and personable with staff and attendees at the gala. One thing specifically noted - that I think is very important - they were great at reading the audience, and providing just what was needed for the event. They were not so loud that they drowned out conversation, but provided beautiful background music. We received so many comments on how great they were. They were definitely a class act. Our gala theme was the Red Tie Gala - each band member wore a red bow tie. No one asked them to - just a small example of their attention to detail and their desire to provide the best experience possible. They will definitely be our "go to" band for events!

Aodhan is an amazing musician and a wonderful teacher. I've been taking lessons with him for about 6 months now and progressed more in that time than the last 3 years playing guitar. I like to study guitar from several angles at once - rhythm, technique, articulation, etc. and Aodhan is great at covering diverse topics and building upon previous lessons. Highly recommended!

I came to Sarah with a goal of wanting to accompany myself as a singer, instead of having to rely on a guitarist or a band. In less than a year I played my first solo show. Sarah has prepared me to play solo, with a band, how to rearrange songs, how to read sheet music and so much more. Every lesson I learn something different. She’s made learning piano fun and interesting. Sarah is very patient, kind and extremely talented. I’d never go anywhere else!

Dan's Band made our fundraiser event extra special. Excellent communication and promptness - they are super professional and arrived, set up, got to performing right away...and took very little break time. You can tell these guys really enjoy what they do. When the time came to finish, they asked if I wanted them to keep going for a bit - totally appreciated that. Oh and they sounded great! Real talent and the price was right. I am literally looking for additional events to use them again.

My daugher took piano lessons from Gab Kallay before moving to Germany and really enjoyed taking lessons from her. Gab was very patient but also extremely thorough with the lessons. In Germany my daughter later joined the school band and continues to play.

I had Peter play my house party Family BBQ. He truly is a pro. He played q great variety of tunes and truly entertained our guests. He took requests and at one point had us singing along. He is the whole package and I would highly recommend. From my party, Peter ended up playing with a full band at a friend in Huntington. They thanked me for the recommendation. Jackie J.

Helene was able to help me break through a huge mental block that prevented me from learning how to play the piano. I now know how to practice and enjoy learning and playing new songs. You will be very pleased with her.

I first heard Bria’s band at local coffee shop one weekend. I enjoyed them so much that I invited them to perform at my wedding reception! They were on point! They had everyone dancing...even my grandma. They were so easy to work with and very professional. They customized their set to fit what we requested. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I would definitely recommend them to anyone !!!

Hired Anthem for a birthday party and it went great. They sound exactly like the bands they cover and put on a great show. They're pro, no goofy embarrassing talk between songs and the price was right. The sound was great and they DJ'd during the breaks. Would definitely rehire. Thanks guys!

About

We are a dynamic, diverse, ultra-professional Latin ensemble with a sizzling sound that blends traditional Latin, Afro-Cuban, Caribbean and Brazilian music with the sophistication of jazz. We have a great following mainly because we've established ourselves as unique from the more typical Latin bands. We're known for taking familiar love songs from legendary artists such as Stevie Wonder and The Beatles, and putting our refreshing Latin spin on them. We are truly passionate about what we do and take great care in customizing our song list and presentation to fit your exact venue or event. If you want "Caliente" and dancing, we never fail! We do it all - cha-cha, merengue, salsa, bachata, etc. If you want it more reserved and ambient, we can provide a smooth, more sophisticated sound to create the perfect backdrop for a more formal event. Check out the comments on our website from people who see us live. Let us bring something completely out of the ordinary and fantastic to your venue or event!
