Nick was fantastic - great DJ...will definitely hire again!! Even though he was hired for a Sweet 16, he would be fabulous for a wedding, as well! Loved Gary, the photographer, (photo booth). Did a great job....gave out prints to the kids during the party and then received a flash drive with all the pictures when we were leaving.
He did great with all of our last minute changes, but he didn't play a lot of the music we wanted. We had given him a playlist of salsa music but played a lot of Motown. That is our only issue, but otherwise the Spanish music he did play was great and our family had a blast.
Jimmy has been our daughters Long time bass instructor along with bass guitar and ukulele. Has enabled her to excel in her school orchestra along with Jazz band. He has brought the best out of her and is primary reason she sticks with it
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.
Loved the band ! Our guests danced to some current hits as well as enjoyed their sofisticated sounds of jazz and Motown . Excellent and engaging musicians , highly recommend
Spencer & Sequoia are abosolutely amazing! I hired them to play a song for my proposal in Central Park and they were great. They played the song perfectly and really created a magical and initiate atmosphere! It was better than I could have ever imaginged. Thank you guys! 👏👏
We had a low turn out due to the weather, but the music made it all better! We absolutely made the best decision choosing this band! They are professional, full of personality and extremely talented! The first of many events to come!
Love U Music School! Adult Band Workshop was a great experience. Lou Ubriaco taught me how to work together with other musicians and perform in a Band while understanding the music theory behind it. Lou is a perfectionist who will not stop working with you until you get it right so get ready to work hard and get results!
Miguel has been playing guitar for over 6 years and he progressed very fast within the two years that he took lessons from me at St. Henry's Community Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. After his two years, I requested that he become a guitar instructor at St. Henry's. He maintained an average of 10 students per week. Through teaching, Miguel was able to grasp a better foundation of music theory and sight reading. Miguel also played guitar in various high school jazz bands. Those experiences took his playing and knowledge of music to an even higher level. Miguel continues to teach students from beginners to intermediate to professional levels. If you are looking for a guitar teacher who can take your playing to a new level, give Miguel a call and start playing like you always dreamed of.
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.
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.
BD Lenz was the absolute perfect wedding band for us. They were easy to work with, extremely accommodating, and just an unbelievable group of musicians. BD was easily reachable via phone/email leading up to the day, and was completely professional throughout. They really knew how to keep people up dancing all night and even allowed me to come up and play a song with my old band. BD stayed up and played some lead guitar, just such an awesome experience. Music is so important to my wife and I, and there's no better band we could think of to play on our day. Please, please, please hire this band. You won't be sorry!!!
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.
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.
David and his band are the complete package...excellent new and familiar music, well executed with a very professional manner. Well rehearsed and articulated music.
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!!
As the drummer in my funk band, Middle Blue, Mike provides both an airtight rhythmic foundation and a sense of adventure. In other words, the beat is always concrete, but never *too* straight. He's always doing something interesting or mysterious with it. Also, he's full of surprises. Just the other day, he threw a rhythmic idea at me that I hadn't heard from him, and we've been playing together for over a year. If I were a drummer, I'd be excited to take lessons with Mike.
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.
We hired the band to play at our neighborhood block party and they were awesome! Music was enjoyed by all, from young children to senior citizens. They played a great very variety of music including Jazz standards and popular tunes. They were very professional, played as scheduled and at just the right volume.
Los Chamanes is a musical group serving a fusion rooted in Nueva Cancion and Latin-American folklore, with flavors of jazz, rock and blues that was born from the spirit of friendship between these Chilean expatriates in NYC, a nostalgia for the magic of the Andes and their native culture. In September 2008, they released Conjurostheir first albumavailable on digital downloads and CD. Initially, the band interpreted songs from authors of Argentina and Chile such as Fito Páez, Violeta Parra, Peteco Carabajal, Victor Jara, Congreso, etc. With time, they have increasingly combined their own compositionswhich now represent almost all of their repertoirethrough which they hope to guide their listeners to reflect on issues such as our behavior as a species and social injustice through the healing and inspiring power of music and poetry. Los Chamanes hold a residency monthly at Terraza in Queens, and have entertained at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe and for the Chile Independence yearly event in Randall's Island. They were the opening act of the concerts of Mariana Baraj and Fernando Ubiergo, and have appeared in various "peñas" (folkloric shows), cafés, restaurants and events in the NY Tri-State area. In 2009, they were on a tour twice in Puerto Rico. They performed at the Noche de Viaje Cultural, at an event organized by the Chilean community in association with the city and in Old San Juan. They were invited at the TV show, Buenas Noches con Silverio on Canal 13 and on 2 radio shows of the University of PR. They've recently contributed to various benefits for the victims of the tsunami and earthquake in Chile.
