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. ;-)

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.

I am 32 years old and have been playing since I was 4 years of age. I have taken a few lessons from Miguel and with all the lessons from artists I have taken through the web, Miguel is certainly one of my favorites. Miguel's teaching style is one that I feel can work with just about anyone. He is very patient and has a vast knowledge in music composition and music theory. I have gained a lot of grey hair from learning the more advanced things Miguel has to offer lol. With that being said, he has the ability to teach a vast range of levels and skillsets for guitarists looking to expand their riff library. Highly recommended to anyone especially if you are looking to get into fusion, jazz and classical. Keep up the good work Miguel!

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.

I cannot say enough great things about working with Dave. As a complete newbie to piano, I was nervous about starting lessons. Dave has been incredibly kind, helpful, and informative. I'm about five lessons in and already have a level of familiarity with the instrument that I never expected. Dave's lessons are well structured and leave me feeling excited to continue my practice. Highly recommended!

Dave has been an incredible vocal coach. He's patient, easy to work with, kind in his constructive criticism and has a way of putting things in perspective so you understand what he means. I started as an alto only 9 months ago, and I'm already zooming toward mezzo-soprano and opening up notes I never expected because of his teaching. He's fantastic.

We were very pleased to have Nico play guitar and sing in our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. She is very professional, arrived in advance and dressed appropriately for a wedding. She asked us in details of what we need in the ceremony and the cocktail hour, and tailored the song choices to exactly what we wanted.  She recommended songs that would be good and also played my favorite, “Fools Rush In.” In a busy and stressful wedding, Nico’s professionalism made it easy and her beautiful singing made our ceremony really perfect.  My wife was so happy and several of our guests asked for her card.  We’d definitely hire her again.

I follow Nico's gigs as regularly as possible and have been doing so ever since her fledgling days as a singer song-writer. I love her original music as it has captivating melodies and heartfelt lyrics . She is quite tenacious in getting herself "out there" and in so doing, she leaves me breathless with all the things she does to promote her talents at any one time. I like to go with friends to hang out at her various gigs and be entertained by her while casually enjoying good food rather than a cover band with very loud music. Nico is a very talented singer and musician who plays different instruments equally well.

Nico was a consummate professional. We hired her for my husband’s backyard 60th birthday bash. Of course she plays great and has an amazing voice. But she found the tone and mood of the crowd immediately, and everyone loved her. Everyone raved at how fantastic she was and several people asked to book her! She played music that pleased all different ages and took requests. I could not recommend Nico more for any event you are planning. We can’t wait to book her for the next one!

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!!!

I had started getting into Latin music a little over a year ago when I met first met Nick Herman. Originally, I tried to learn to play Latin percussion (congas, bongos, timbales etc.) from books and instructional videos. I also tried lessons with a few different musicians. I was at it for months, however, I found my progress to be very slow. Eventually, I confronted Nick about lessons. After only 5 lessons, my bongo playing had improved exponentially! I would play my bongos with other musicians in the park and after one or two songs, many people would compliment me on my playing. One night I played a duet with a guitarist who would compliment me on my playing after every song. Later, I came to find out he was the leader of a salsa band who frequently performed around the city! Shortly after that I made Nick my official trainer on the bongos and cowbell! Nick Herman also leads his own band. I think anyone who is serious about learning Latin percussion would benefit greatly by having Nick as an instructor. I wish I had began lessons with him sooner!

I contacted Marta's band through a common friend to play at the premiere of my last film, "La Última Noche", and the experience was just wonderful. I was impressed not only by the quality of the music -they're all unbelievably talented musicians-, but also for their professionalism and fantastic attitude. They were there way before time -and this is shocking for musicians! :), they lifted the mood of the party with wonderful tunes, they were really nice to all my guests and they left a great impression on all of us. Even Marta's cute Spanish accent was widely celebrated amongst my friends!

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

Mark Dover was my son Jordan's first clarinet teacher; they worked together for about two and a half years when Jordan was in middle school. (We would happily have continued with Mark if he had not moved out of town to attend graduate school.) Mark did a fabulous job. He made the lessons fun for Jordan, and he always kept me informed about Jordan's progress. I occasionally sat in on lessons and noticed that Mark was always positive and encouraging but nevertheless held Jordan to high standards. I enjoyed seeing their rapport. What I didn't realize until later (not being a musician myself) was that Jordan was getting a very solid introduction to the fundamentals of the clarinet. Those first years with Mark positioned him to succeed in a very well-regarded and competitive high school music program. By the end of his senior year, Jordan was first chair in both his high school's Symphony Band and the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association's All-State Band (of which he was a five-time member). He was also offered music scholarships at several different colleges. So yes, Mark is a great clarinet teacher. He is also a good, kind person. Two years after Mark moved away, we had a devastating death in the family. I will always be grateful that Mark came to visit Jordan to offer his condolences--and that he brought his clarinet! Nothing could have been more comforting than hearing the two of playing together again. My review in a nutshell: Mark's an outstanding clarinetist, a dedicated teacher, and an all-around good guy. I would hire him again in a second.

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.

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.

"Riddim Licensing" Jim and his studio band HiFi Rockers served me up some of the most authentic sound reggae.. I was delighted and I was treated very well throughout the whole process. Jim is very knowledgeable in the reggae music production and sound. Not many people can pinpoint the exact tonal characteristics these days. I have found that they don't use much vintage equipment so again, it was a great surprise to hear such impeccable work. The band is super tight, like glue. They are extremely knowledgeable on how to phrase reggae correctly but also understand the fundamentals of music in general. I will definitely use them in the future for a full production.

We do it all - cha-cha, merengue, salsa, bachata, etc. If you want it more reserved and ambient, we can provide a smooth, more sophisticated sound to create the perfect backdrop for a more formal event. Check out the comments on our website from people who see us live. Let us bring something completely out of the ordinary and fantastic to your venue or event!
