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!
Dealing with many vendors while planning a wedding can be quite overwhelming but working with Sweet Harmony was a wonderful experience. I love being on top of everything, I am organized and very particular. However, I found Tara the owner amazing to work with throughout the whole process. She is professional reliable, accommodating and lovely. We hired a String Quartet to play at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Then, just a month prior to the big day we decided to have a Jazz trio (Piano, Saxophone, vocal) playing while having dinner during the reception because we love live music. Tara made it happen! The day of the wedding all the musicians arrived early and played beautifully. While on our honeymoon my husband forgot to make the payment for the overtime dinner music. Tara was so patient she waited a few weeks before sending me a reminder. When I called to apologize she was very understanding and nice as always. We will definitely recommend company to our family and friends and we are looking forward to do business with them in the future. Thanks you Sweet Harmony! Carolane & David
This band did a great job for us. Alan was very responsive and easy to work with. The whole group was professional and friendly, and the music was great! Everyone at our event had something nice to say about the playlist and quality of the performance. Highly recommended!
I highly recommend voice teacher Christine Moore to anyone who desires to have more power and control of their voice and singing. She has fine-tuned knowledge of vocal mechanics and most importantly, she knows how to share that information with her students in a focused and caring way. She is deeply interested in her students' process and progress, and is also very skilled at tailoring lessons to her students' particular musical goals. As someone who performs regularly in a jazz/experimental/rock setting, I have gained tremendously from working with Christine. Lessons consist of both classical vocal training and addressing the specific skills needed for non-classical singing. The work has been not just beneficial but crucial towards developing stamina and a healthy voice that I can count on in performance.
Amazing teacher with a vast knowledge of jazz music. Highly recommended
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!
Taking lessons with Jonathan has been a blast. While I'm not a "new" person I'm a pretty new player and the variety of music I've learned has kept it interesting and challenging. We've worked on classical pieces, Beatles, bluegrass and jazz and blues. He's taught me a lot of theory as well as practical technique. And how to practice. The past few years have changed the way I listen to music.
Joyce has been teaching my son trumpet for 3 years. How do I appreciate her? Let me count the ways! - Son played trumpet in school band throughout middle school before starting lessons with Joyce. He strongly resisted learning to sight read all those years. Joyce had him (happily!) sight reading within the first few months. - Joyce helped my son correct some technique problems which were frustrating him. His progress was impressive, and he won a coveted spot in the area all-state band. - Joyce is open to working with music that her students enjoy. Jazz improvisation has become a staple of lessons that my son looks forward to, and solos in his school jazz band have flowed from this. - Whenever I listen in on lessons I always hear laughter. Even when my son is tired and grumpy before a lesson, he comes out of the lesson feeling great. -Joyce loves cats! Your cat will be treated like royalty whenever Joyce is around.
Mark Weisman has been my son's piano teacher since he was 11 years old. Alex is now a proficient pianist at age 21. Under the tutelage of Mark, my son advanced from a music student to a true musician. Mark is an engaging teacher who introduces his students to a variety of music genres, keeping classical, standards and popular music all part of the student's repertoire. My son Alex's interest in music was spurred on by Mark's enthusiasm and style of teaching. The Music Workshop conducts annual performances for parents and friends so we can see the progress our children have made. My son is now in college and still studies with Mark on breaks and in the summer. Alex belongs to The Jazz Band at Loyola University as well as his own band. He has played professionally for cocktail hours and theater productions. Mark has inspired Alex to continue his music into his adulthood. Mark Weisman is an exemplary teacher and person.
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.
I follow Nico's gigs as regularly as possible and have been doing so ever since her fledgling days as a singer song-writer. I love her original music as it has captivating melodies and heartfelt lyrics . She is quite tenacious in getting herself "out there" and in so doing, she leaves me breathless with all the things she does to promote her talents at any one time. I like to go with friends to hang out at her various gigs and be entertained by her while casually enjoying good food rather than a cover band with very loud music. Nico is a very talented singer and musician who plays different instruments equally well.
Tim and his jazz quartet were very professional! They are top-notch musicians who performed a wide variety of favorite selections. I would definitely hire them again. Bravo!!!
I Love working with Jeff and all of his bands and bandmates! He's very easy to work with, very fair and reasonable. He and all of his bands play great and give it their all every time they play!
My experience with Yuto, I could say, was life-changing. The amount of not only knowledge, but really feeling of what Jazz and music in general can be, was endless. Yuto treats you as a real friend, and his lessons are both very practical, but also with a theoretical foundation that really provides a real sense of what you are playing or composing. Also, Yuto, above all, is a great human being, with a big heart and passion for music. We ended up recording some things at his studio and continue to be good friends. I will always thank him and consider him to be one of the best musicians I´ve played with and hope to play again soon with him. To anyone that is looking for lessons on Jazz, or classical or any kind of music. I could, with all sincerety say, Yuto is the one for you. -Diego D.
Chanan was a joy to work with! Knowledgeable and skilled and very creative. He helped produce a record of sacred music for me and also provided back up guitar for my band when needed a few times in Dallas. He is an exceptional engineer and guitar player with a fine ear for detail.
Just started and find that Jonathan is very talented and patient. Never felt this comfortable trying to learn guitar from a teacher before. I am an experienced player and can confidently say he can teach blues both pick and finger style as well as jazz and rock. Peace fellow musicians.. Darren.
Oli taught me for about three years from when I was 12 years old to 15. My lessons with him played a pivotal role in my development as a musician. I found him to be extremely motivating and by having him as a mentor I was able to improve my skills immensely. I will always look fondly upon my lessons with Oli and regard him highly as an educator and a musician. This year I will be starting the Jazz course at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and it is clear to me that my deep passion for jazz music that continues to this day was initially inspired by Oli, and for that I am very grateful.
Alex was highly recommended by my daughter's classical saxophone private instructor after she expressed great interest in Jazz. Alex was able to get her ramped up for audition and acceptance to the GDYO Jazz Institute within a few short months through focused lessons and lots of practice. Although, Alex is not always in the same city to provide lessons in person, he has been able to provide solid lessons via video chat which has worked out extremely well. We are very pleased that Alex continues to provide lessons to our daughter who loves this great art form!
I've been at several events where Carol and her band have performed. Each time, she sang a mix of jazz and blues, and she and the band sounded and looked great! The musicians who play with her are really professional. I also noticed Carol is very organized and she kept the evening moving and the crowd was happy. I'd highly recommend hiring her and the band for any event where you want your guests to have a terrific time!
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!
