We hired Nick to DJ an event we had in New Haven, CT and he was great! He arrived early and was completely set up at least 30 minutes before the event started - which was greatly appreciated! He even brought his own DJ booth and lights. I should have given him more of a heads up on the type of music we wanted, but once I gave him a few examples of some bands to play he did a great job keeping it up. He also did a wonderful job making announcements throughout the event to keep the attendees in the loop. In our original agreement Nick said he would bring a photographer and would leave us with a thumb drive of all the pictures. We thought this offer was ABOVE and BEYOND so knew he would be great to work with. Unfortunately the photographer wasn't at the event, but Nick did have a nice camera that we were able to take photos with. I'm waiting for Nick to mail me those photos on a thumb drive and as long as I get those soon I am comfortable leaving a 5 star review! Nick was a great guy so I know they will be in the mail any day now. And as an added bonus: he sings! If you're event go-ers are into Frank Sinatra, make sure to let Nick know and he'll put on a show. ;-)
So glad we used a harpist through Sweet Harmony! It was so easy getting in touch with Tara anytime I had a question, she was really on top of everything. We had 2 songs that we really wanted to be played, and they were able to add them into the repertoire of song choices. It was such a beautiful addition to our wedding ceremony, and I would definitely recommend Sweet Harmony to anyone looking to hire a musician.
Your jazz band was even better than what we were hoping for! It added just the touch we wanted - and such a fun group! Thank you! Can't wait to hear you again.
I've really been enjoying my lessons with Mike. I've only ever played the drums a few times in school about 10 years ago and now with only 4 lessons under my belt I'm already up to lesson 8 in the book. I always look forward to class as he teaches you the fundamentals but also lets you feel your own beat and rock out to your favorite music. He's fun, professional and very good at what he does! Thanks Mike!!!
Alan was great to work with. He accommodating to our needs and he worked with us to perfect our wedding. We got constant compliments on the band all night, and I would definitely recommend his services for any event.
I took piano lessons from Gary for years and his program is fantastic. I learned to play the piano through songs that I loved, which made me want to continue with lessons as a kid. I am in college now and I still play the piano. Also, his rockonamerica program was a wonderful experience. I got to play rock music in a band with other kids my age. It was way cooler than any piano recital. I would definitely recommend taking music lessons with Gary; his lessons were a lot of fun and years later I still retain what I learned.
I took guitar lessons from Jimi on a fairly constant basis for about 3 years. The best and most unique feature of his teaching style is the balance between the freedom Jimi gives students in what they want to achieve musically, and the structure that he provides students with that will allow them to reach that goal. Personally, I learned advanced rock and jazz guitar techniques and improvisation from Jimi, and I am very happy with my current level of ability. Especially helpful is his extremely coherent way of explaining often over-complicated music theory. Jimi treats his students with an optimistic and respectful attitude, and creates a very welcoming and encouraging environment for the music student.
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.
Way overdue in submitting this but I'm incredibly busy. These guys were excellent they made our Thanksgiving a seamless happy holiday event with our family. We didn't have to worry about the minor details. Very reasonably priced. If you want to have a great party or holiday event with your family hire these guys!
Dianne, Monk and Sam of the Talking Machine headlined our fundraiser, music festival wedding in August 2017. They are fabulous musicians - huge diversity of ability - their own unique take on cover songs, and their own original music which is totally awesome. They also look like rock stars, have the stage presence of rock stars, but also somehow are organized and helpful and super responsive on email. I would recommend Talking Machine to anyone hosting an event or any bar who wants to draw in more customers. If they had a standing set at my local bar, I would go every week! You won't be disappointed!
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!
I play rock bass but never learned chords or theory, which held me back. KEVIN was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses within the first lesson and has put together lessons that have been consistently fun and effective, with just the right level of challenge. He made me feel comfortable , which is enabling me to take on new challenges. Very patient and skilled.
Our son has been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for several years. Out of all the teachers our son has had, Jonathan is far and away his favorite. Lessons mix technique, theory, scales, improvisation and songs; genres include classical, jazz, rock, pop and more. Jonathan can play anything and more than that, can teach anything! Jonathan respects his students and teaches to their abilitylessons are fun and fast moving, yet demanding. For more advanced students, Jonathans performance background is a bonus--he has helped our son prepare for concerts at Madison Square Garden and The Bitter End. Jonathan has been with us every step of the way and we will no doubt be with him every step of our sons musical career. I would whole-heartedly recommend Jonathan to students of all levels." Thank you so much Jonathan!!!

Matt is well versed in the artistic journey of life, where creativity wins the day, and love rules the roost! Rock On OMM; rock on! Stephen Weeks, Electric Light Orchestra
The Wayne Batchelor Jazz Band is professional and talented. We hired them for our Spring Benefit recently and all the attendees enjoyed their music. These musicians really know how to jam up the room. If you are looking for live jazz music then you need to consider them. In fact, we plan on hiring them again for future events.
To whom it may concern: Jacob Sayraf has been teaching my 10 year-old son Steven the guitar and vocals for over a year and a half now. He has been a wonderful teacher, and my son has made great progress under his tutelage. Before he met Jacob he didn't know how to play the guitar at all. Jacob is also sharing with Stevie a wealth of songs from a broad range of folk, country, rock, pop, and standards. Some of these include: "We'll Meet Again", "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Blue Moon of Kentucky", "House of the Rising Sun", "Blue Suede Shoes", "In My Life", "Hot Tamales and Theyr'e Red Hot", and "Don't Worry, Be Happy". Stevie is getting a sound musical education through Jacob. Jacob is doing a great job of not only teaching Stevie the guitar, but also the theory of music behind it. He gives Stevie homework, which Stevie dutifully does. Jacob also goes out of his way to borrow sheet music books from the library so he can lend them to Stevie. Most importantly, Stevie has a lot of fun with Jacob and always looks forward to his next lesson, which to me is a sign of a great teacher. I would definitely recommend Jacob for any teaching position you have. Sincerely, Jeffery Ringle
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.
Nick West is THE best. He’s the creme de la creme...the cats pajamas, the bees knees and the real McCoy. For recording studio sessions he’s a One-Take-Jake with any style of music and he has a bottomless reserve of creative ideas. Onstage, in concert, he’s not only rock steady musically but his love for the music always shines through. Our fans always tell me what a great time it looks like he’s having while he’s playing. Plus he’s the consummate professional: easy going, great sense of humor, always shows up early for rehearsals and shows and is the kind of guy you would hang out with more if he wasn’t so dang busy! West is the best. Get him while you still can.
I hired Peter to play an outdoor party that I do every year to entertain friends and a few clients. This is the first time that I hired an entertainer, I usually just play my stereo in the background. Peter changed the entire atmosphere of the party. For starters, he sounded like a full band with his backup tracks. Then he accommodated so many of my guests requests. He is like a literal walking library of music. He did all kinds of pop rock hits and even accommodated a request for Sinatra and Roy Orbison. Then I asked for some Motown and dance. He literally covered all of our requests and even entertained with a few impressions of stars. We had a blast when Peter did a few sing along tunes. I didn't know so many people love to sing. Well, I definitely recommend Peter and plan to have him back next year.
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!!
Arthur is an excellent, very well-rounded, guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable in quite a few aspects of guitar playing - from music theory, playing different styles, transcribing, to all the guitar gear and technology stuff. He has a nice studio, and is also very accuracy oriented, which I really like. I'm into learning to play the blues, rock and metal, and Arthur has been really helpful with that. Highly recommended!
