After our DJ cancelled just weeks before our wedding, my husband and I were nervous and scrambling to find a replacement. By that point most DJs in our area were booked, but Nick from the Wedding and Party Center had that same Friday night free. Even with the rushed circumstances though, he was very understanding of our budget and worked with our couple to create a DJ - MC - dance light package that was just perfect for our reception needs. Nick was very professional, we didn't need to worry about anything once the reception got started, and worked well with our coordinator to keep everything moving smoothly and according to schedule. The music was fantastic, and once invited up, our guests never left the dance floor. To our surprise and to the entertainment and enjoyment of our guests, he also threw in a few live solos (Nick and his whole family are also musicians and professional vocalists). I was especially appreciative that Nick could cater to our very diverse and international group, half brazilian, and half english-american-korean-japanese-etc. Once he started playing South American and Latin songs the party became even more lively, and our guests stayed to the end of the night. Thank you Nick and the Wedding and Party Center for not only saving the day in a tight spot, but providing and excellent service and helping us celebrate with a great party on our wedding day.
We had a wedding at Liberty House in Jersey City, NJ on October 12, 2017, and Sweet Harmony played our cocktail hour and ceremony music. I and my husband are very satisfied with their services. We contacted Sweet Harmony a few weeks before the wedding day. Despite the pressing timeline, Tara was able to fit us on Sweet Harmony's schedule. On top of that, she was super nice, patient, informative, and helpful. I and my husband had a rough idea of what music we wanted for the cocktail hour and the ceremony, but we did not know which specific repertoire to choose. Tara gave us very helpful suggestions and helped us finalize the music choices. At the wedding day, we had a small problem with our schedule. We (the bride, groom, and the bridal party) and many guests were running late to the ceremony due to heavy traffic. We decided that it might be better to change the schedule and have the cocktail hour before the ceremony. Tara and her team kindly went along with the changes and entertained our guests before we arrived for the ceremony. The ceremony music they played was absolutely beautiful! Tara and her team were very professional, nice, and responsive during the entire process. I would like to thank Sweet Harmony for helping us have an unforgettable wedding ceremony! I highly recommend them for your event.
Mr.Salinas is a true professional going above and beyond my wildest expectations! His musicianship is expert. He arrived to perform at my party dressed smartly in a tux and key board in hand. He played for the full time contracted. My guests enjoyed every moment.
Alan from Al Louis Entertainment did our daughter's Sweet Sixteen on 6/5/15. He was set up by 6:30 for a 7:00 party. He worked with our daughter prior to the event to be sure he had the correct music that she wanted. No one was sitting down except to eat!. Alan made sure the dance floor was always in use. Even the boys were up dancing! A great time was had by all. Would highly recommend him for any type of party.
Vasiliy and his band were amazing at my wedding and guests are still talking about them ! They played a variety of music from modern to classic and it all sounded so beautiful. Vasiliy also spent a lot of time with me helping find the music for the wedding March and ceremony processional. The music we picked worked really well with the theme of my wedding. It is very easy to work with Consonance Music because they very helpful and responsive. I would definitely use them for other events. Thank you so much for my wedding day memorable!!
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.
They were talented, fun, pleasant, and modest. Really made the party. No one wanted them to stop playing.
I have been a student at U Music for 3 1/2 years. When I began studying there I had been playing with a band for a couple of years and had just begun playing a a solo gig here and there. Now both the band thing and the solo work are going strong. Lou Ubriaco has helped me to move my playing to another level and there is no end in sight. I recommend the school to any student-especially the motivated person who wants to seriously find some chops. Lou sugar coats nothing. Practice, practice, practice-but if you are willing to put in the work he will take you where you want to go. 5 stars all the way.
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.
Aodhan (Aidan) is exceptional in his perception of where you stand as a guitarist and who you are as a person. He is incredibly talented himself as a guitarist but never uses that against you. Instead he is able to draw from his own talents to understand where you are as a guitarist and help you achieve your own goals, but even better, help you to realize that you have more to offer than you realize. He will give you personalized lessons that apply to you and your own level. He has the ability to apply pertinent lessons to the very beginner, with enthusiastic encouragement, and also be able to help someone who's got the basics, truly apply that towards a deeper understanding of what they are actually doing on guitar. I have taken lessons from other guitarists, who simply don't take the time to understand where you are in your skills, and just want to fill the time with talk and misdirection. Aodhan, isn't concerned with that nonsense, he is interested in making you better at the guitar and understanding what your abilities are on this instrument. I've gone from simple chord progressions and simple strumming to more complicated and off beat strumming under the direction of Aodhan. He really is very good at contouring a lesson based on your very own level and goals, but also lets you know a little bit more of what your capable of that you might not realize yet. I highly recommend him as a teacher, but you will also find him to be a friend as well. You will also benefit form going to hear him in action as he plays with several bands throughout NYC. I have been with him for a few months now and have been truly motivated to keep honing my skills on the guitar. I appreciate his respect in that and ability to keep me wanting more of myself.
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.
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.
Nico was a fabulous addition to my party. We had 80 guests on my deck for a birthday party. Nico was very entertaining. She played songs that I had requested as well as requests that my guests gave her as the night went along. She was very personable interacting with the audience at times and also provided quiet background music later in the evening. Nico was also wonderful with the little kids. At one point the kids were near her and she started playing some music that they knew. The kids started dancing and they had a great time. My guests were astounded at the variety of songs she can play and her voice is fantastic. Several guests asked me for her card for their private parties. I highly recommend Nico.
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!
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.
We recently hired Sabina for our house party. We are extremely happy with her performance . She has a great personality and very professional . I’m so glad we found her. Thanks Sabina , you made our day and we can not thank you enough . Regards , Kash
Summer Backyard Party! OMM was Terrific! He played Background (low volume) during Dinner, and afterwards, stepped it up for us even to Dance to! Everyone of our guests loved his performance! Ken H
Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!
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!
Jamaica Vybz Reggae Band is very entertaining. The quality of the music is great. If you are a lover of conscious lyrics they are the band to choose.
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!
