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.
Scott is an incredible musician and a true pleasure to work with. If you're looking for music for your wedding or other event, look no further and book Scott right now. He is very responsive, kind, fair and so easy to work with. He did piano covers of 3 of our favorite songs for our wedding ceremony that were the most beautiful songs we could have ever hoped for, we cried just listening to the quick demos he made for us. Then he, and 3 of his other jazz musicians, played for our outdoor cocktail hour and killed it! People came up to us all night, and still continue to do so 3 days after our wedding, to say how amazing the jazz band was. He is a true talent, visionary, and perhaps most importantly, especially in the wedding industry, a truly good person that wants you to have the most special day of your lives and goes above and beyond to make it so.
I met Gary about 15 years ago, when I moved to the States. His rock music teaching program for aspiring musicians of any age, grouped by skill level and interests rather than just age group, grabbed my attention the first time I visited the (now defunct, unfortunately) East Coast Music store. I joined his program, and before I knew it I became part of many bands that he formed over the years, making lots of new musical friends in addition to improving my skills. Gary's music talent is unparalleled: he knows thousands of songs across different genres by heart, his soloing skills are amazing (especially in jazz and rock) yet he only uses them artfully to refine the sound of the band, complementing shortcomings of the wanna-be musicians that he is teaching love for music to. The result is that any aspiring musician, no matter the age and playing skills, is offered a joyful and enticing environment to play music in, and feel "I did it, I can do even better and I know now what to practice on next". I am fascinated by his ability to interact with children all ages, get the most out of them and make them feel proud of their performances. When I took music lessons as a teen ager, they were all about score reading and practicing passages. Of course they are important steps, but I never had a teacher like Gary who would also bring in the passion of sharing music in a band, learning from each others' mistakes, making commitments to other band members to practice and improve, performing in public every now and then as a motivating challenge to grow musically. More recently I enjoyed playing with Gary some serious jazz. His improvisation skills are amazing and head and shoulders above anybody I know. As I play my part I listen to his soulful re-interpretation of the tune in awe, realizing how much more I need to grow and I can learn from him. I don't think there is any other professional musician that like him can dialog with pro musicians and primary school kids beginners with the same ease.
I don't even know how to start. I can't say enough praise for these two. Absolutely amazing singers and musicians. My guests and myself fell in love with them. So professional, very sweet and magical voices. They basically saved our wedding when our speakers broke down. 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.
Yuto worked directly with my son teaching him piano and guitar. He is very knowledgeable and professional. My son learned a lot from him. He was very patient with him and taught in an encouraging manner. He is also very friendly and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend Yuto as a music instructor to my friends and family.

Working with Candice was one of the best decisions for my voice that I ever made. I had one-on-one lessons with her, culminating in a solo in a recital doing "Old Man River", and the quality and confidence in my singing ability was noticeably different. Not only did we go over the how to of singing, we went over what was happening as a singer performed, which once I started following (I'm REALLY bad at biology, haha), actually benefited my singing a good deal. Candice's specific teaching style is incredibly constructive to learning. She's patient and encouraging, and really explains things very well (will save the specifics for her classes!). And even just as a person, she's super friendly and fun to talk with, so voice lessons with her are anything but dry. She manages to blend effective teaching with actually having a good time while doing so. All in all, I can't recommend Candice enough. If you want to learn not just to sing, but to be confident with your singing (I NEVER would have attempted "Old Man River" if not for her lessons), give her a call.
Tiphanie and La Parisienne Band were wonderful. She is professional and provided great communication in setting up arrangements. The band delivered exactly as expected-they put on a great performance that added a very elegant touch to our holiday party. I would highly recommend them!
Daisy is a fantastic teacher! I am a trained musician but very shy singer, and have been learning from Daisy to help me singing with my band. These lessons have really developed my confidence, helped me find and trust in my own voice, and sing with better technique as my mind is not constricting my sound anymore. Her lessons are peaceful and meditative - she teaches without judgement and with gentle guidance to finding your own sound (previous vocal teachers have always been trying to mould my voice into a preconceived idiomatic sound). The crystal and Tibetan singing bowls are just magical! I can't imagine where my singing would be without her.
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!
I was desperate for a band for my reception after my DJ told us he was double booked. Ken squeezed us into his schedule and gave me the royal treatment! His band "The STAXXX Experience" was amazing and our family had a blast! I wish I had booked him first and saved myself the worry.
Whenever I want to impress and dazzle my friends I take them to hear Karen sing! She is equal or even surpasses many jazz singers I have seen and regularly heard, on satellite radio, including some of the greats. The voice, the performance, the sheer heart that I enjoy every time I see her perform has no equal! The only improvement I can think of is for me to alter my schedule and see her more often!
Karen is an incredible teacher! She has an amazing ability to find exactly what you need in your training and to provide you with the tools and advice to excel at it. I found her so easy to work with and her guidance has helped me become a much, much better performer and singer. Highly recommend! Thanks Karen!
I am a singer with operatic training but also sing Broadway tunes. I would like to sing at the marriage ceremony. I am flexible but usually sing Ave Maria and Panis Angelicus as an example.
I want to sing like a star and get fans and get to meet other celebrities. To see them is going to be a blast!
I do anything I put my mind to. I'm a professional singer, dancer and model. I love to do hair, nails and makeup.
I have experience singing in musical theatre, choral, operatic, classical, and popular styles, and I am always looking to learn something new!
We are a group usually with three members. We sing and play many styles of music, including old times, folk, Irish, and American songbook. Samples can be emailed.
I'm a serious and consummate musician, naturally eager to both provide traditional services from performance to instruction and brainstorm innovative projects.
