We wish that a 6 Star Review was an option! We hired Louise and his band at the last minute before our wedding party based only on a few good reviews we read online. We have never saw or heard any of their performance prior to our wedding day. We took a big gamble on Louise and his band and and it was a big WIN. Louise and his band put out an AMAZING performance based on a playlist we provided only days before the wedding. We definitely got more than we bargained for! We would advise anyone who is looking for a professional performer for any event to hire him confidently. Thank you Louise and Adam you guys made our night! Alina and Yuval

Working with Sweet Harmony was fantastic, every step of the way. I worked with Tara, the owner as well as one of the musicians on the day. We had a keyboardist and violinist for the ceremony and a keyboardist and saxophone player for the cocktail hour. We were able to choose all of the songs we wanted for the ceremony, including a special request to play during a break. Tara helped me select pieces that would work well together while making sure to find the perfect place for the wide range of songs we wanted included. (Fields of Gold - check, Ave Maria - check!) It really elevated the ceremony and we're so lucky to have had them! Unfortunately, I didn't get to hear the sax & keyboard during cocktail hour, and from what I heard, I missed quite a performance! Friends could not stop talking about it, and even mentioned that they stayed close to the music so that they wouldn't miss any songs! I can't recommend Sweet Harmony highly enough! Even if you are not sure if you "need" live music, I'd suggest that you look into them. Tara is happy to work with you on your needs and I think you'll be convinced it's worth it!

I called it "God's perfect timing! Here's our story...Our family, recently bowed our heads, as our 97 year old father, united with his family in Heaven. We were blessed to enjoy every single minute we spent together. God bless my dad, "Babe's" soul. I wanted to honor my dad, by having live music playing at his service, as my dad loved music... he had 3,001, 33 1/3 records. All his friends and family gathered to celebrate his adventurous life. Scott Samuels promptly contacted me after I left a message requesting a vocalist/guitarist! His professionalism is "above" all others. I have EVER met. The rest, is a moment in time, my memories will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for creating this site for the world to utilize. Scott, you're a fantastic performer/true humanitarian. I could go on and on, but those memories are mine. Betsy, Babes baby "DAURTER" as dad would say!

I briefly took guitar lessons from Josh. I wanted to learn to play with other musicians and improvise, and his jazz background is what caught my attention. The sessions were informative and Josh was very encouraging. I had to stop unexpectedly but what I learned in the few lessons I took was very helpful and got me out of the rut I fall into while practicing on my own.

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.

The Verdict played at our welcome dinner in VT the night before our wedding for around 150 guests. They were amazing, and exceeded our already sky-high expectations. We and our guests had an awesome time, and we have The Verdict to thank for it! They are extremely talented musicians, and you can tell they love to play together; there is a soul to their music that is not typical of most bands. They really read the mood of the crowd and make sure everyone is having a good time – they played softer background music during cocktail hour and dinner, and then switched to dancing music after dinner that got everyone out on the dance floor. They are true entertainers – getting everyone at the event out of their seats dancing, laughing and celebrating. John, the band leader, was a pleasure to work with and was extremely flexible and responsive. He answered all our questions beforehand and worked with us to make sure the evening was exactly what we wanted. They sound amazing – their song list is extensive and varied, and they can play anything from roots reggae to pop with a great reggae vibe. We highly recommend the Verdict for any party or event – they were a pleasure to work with and will make sure everyone has an AWESOME time. -Emma & Jeff

Testimonial for David Joel, Guitar Instructor: My name is Ken and I have been playing guitar for 43 years since the age of 12. I took lessons for about 2 years at the very beginning. I never learned how to read music in the traditional sense, just tab. I have played in classic rock bands over the years. Several years ago I reached a point in my playing that I felt I could not get any better and was playing the same music, leads over and over again. I was convinced that all I could learn was what I could hear or was shown by other musicians. I knew I developed bad technique habits over the years as well. I wanted to get better and began looking for an instructor on-line and found David Joel. A brief review of David’s web-site indicated he was well-versed in all styles on electric, acoustic and classical guitar. The backbone of David’s approach is based on the Berklee Series Modern Method books by William Leavitt. It requires the guitarist to read and play music…something I never did and as it turns out contributed to my “illiteracy” or lack of language or “data” as David refers to music. In the 2 ½ years that I studied with David he completely changed my technique, increased my potential to play a variety of styles and improvise and helped me to achieve many of my goals as a player. He is amazingly encouraging and very real when it comes to students of all ages. I currently enjoy playing in a number of classic rock bands and praise band at church. Thanks David!

My experience with the Whiskey trail Band was excellent in every aspect. They were responsive from my first contact with them responding to my questions immediately. They arrived early and with almost no direction set up their eqioment and was ready to perform in advance of the start time. I received many compliments from my guests. At the pre discussed time they concluded their live performance and moved their equipment to a new location and became a DJ. They add some colored lights which were perfect. Once again, a terrific job. Took many requests and did a good job balancing the music for 18 year olds and those around 50 years old. Everyone was having such a great time that I extended the DJ time an extra hour. I would confidently recommend them in every aspect!
