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.
Absolutely perfect—that sums up our experience with Scott. We hired Scott to entertain our 40 guests at our annual holiday party in our home in Tribeca, and his skills, background and music blew away the other vendors who submitted quotes. Not only is he a wonderfully talented pianist, he is a composer, arranger and teacher. As such, he brings unparalleled skills in creating the perfect musical backdrop to any function…and our holiday soiree was no exception. Warm and welcoming in person and via email, he is professional, pleasant and aims to please. My wife & I asked Scott to prepare a set list filled with sounds of the season—and Scott prepared and performed an endless array of wonderful holiday classics infused with touches of jazz…providing the ideal mood for conversation, laughter and enjoyment. We will most certainly be booking Scott again for our private and corporate events moving forward, and strongly urge anyone looking for a fantastically talented pianist to hire him for any type of gathering, large or small.
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.
This band did a great job for us. Alan was very responsive and easy to work with. The whole group was professional and friendly, and the music was great! Everyone at our event had something nice to say about the playlist and quality of the performance. Highly recommended!
Just for background information, I took lessons with Christine for about 4 years throughout high school with a focus in classical voice. I currently still study voice in college and I can honestly say I have the most helpful foundation I could have ever asked for for that. Christine instills a very strong vocal foundation both artistically and technically. She doesn't dumb anything down, but is absolutely understandable even for beginners. She is also incredibly knowledgeable as a musician, which is enormously helpful because with each new piece she adds to your repertoire, she also builds theoretical and artistic knowledge which helps you be able to perform other pieces later on. So I went into a lot of later repertoire having a solid understanding of the purpose and context of the music I was singing. Also, she never loses sight of the artistic aspects of singing, never letting pronunciation, oddly placed breaths, facial expressions, body language, misunderstanding of text, etc, slide. This seems kind of standard, but it's actually a really professional way of treating your students and made me personally, approach my music with as much professionalism as I had developed. I also found it extremely helpful that she explained why she did asked me to do certain things or ignore other things because, especially for beginners, classical training can seem like a black box and occasionally feels like it's taking you backwards. Having those explanations assuaged a lot of that fear. In my experience, I felt a lot of changes both explicitly and implicitly. I felt my voice grow, in range and strength, and my technical foundation and knowledge are both fairly solid. I stopped fidgeting and found a tremendously improved focus and composure while performing (a big problem for me). My Italian pronunciation is actually quite good now. My ear and internal tempo are both MUCH better. My theoretical knowledge is a lot more in depth than it was, (kind of a bonus because that's not her job). And my contextual knowledge of music is also at a much higher level than it would have been otherwise. Overall, Christine is a really talented teacher and musician who provides a lot of understandable but high level information, impeccable and PRECISE technique, and an artistic but academic approach to music and singing which lays a perfect philosophy in her students for continuing to grow as musicians.
Sean is an amazing musician. Furthermore, he teaches music theory in a proper way. He is a good music teacher.
Fantastic musicians! Female/male both sing amazingly! Guitar skills are incredible! I would hire them again and again. Great people and great performance! Everyone at my party was raving about them. Almost don't want to give their number out, want to keep it to myself! Thank you so much!
I looooove Soulful Sounds! They are my favorite band. They played at my wedding in August 2015. I'm so glad I gave them a chance. Besides picking my dress they were the best decision for my wedding. People still talk about how great the band was. My only regret was that I didn't have them play the whole night. The guys are so prefessional and they dress for the job. I highly recommend them to everyone I know. I can't wait for my next event to have Soulful Sounds play. Keep up the good work guys. I feel like they get better every time I hear them. Love Vicky
Wayne Batchelor is a top notch musician, and his trio is nothing short of remarkable. They are prompt, professional, and with their music are able to make any event extra special. Personally Wayne is a true gentleman and very easy to speak and have a rapport with, and working with him is not only extremely easy, but is also a joy as well. Hire this group TODAY for your event, party, wedding reception, etc.
I have taken piano lessons from Robert for a few weeks now and my ability to read sheet music while I play, as well as understand music theory (big areas of weakness for me) have already improved significantly. He is a great instructor who understands what you need in order to become a better player, and he creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere that makes me look forward to my lesson each week. I would highly recommend Robert as a piano instructor!
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. I recommend the school to any student-especially the motivated person who wants to seriously find some chops. Lou sugar coats nothing. Practice, practice, practice-but if you are willing to put in the work he will take you where you want to go. 5 stars all the way.
Joyce has been teaching my son trumpet for 3 years. How do I appreciate her? Let me count the ways! - Son played trumpet in school band throughout middle school before starting lessons with Joyce. He strongly resisted learning to sight read all those years. Joyce had him (happily!) sight reading within the first few months. - Joyce helped my son correct some technique problems which were frustrating him. His progress was impressive, and he won a coveted spot in the area all-state band. - Joyce is open to working with music that her students enjoy. Jazz improvisation has become a staple of lessons that my son looks forward to, and solos in his school jazz band have flowed from this. - Whenever I listen in on lessons I always hear laughter. Even when my son is tired and grumpy before a lesson, he comes out of the lesson feeling great. -Joyce loves cats! Your cat will be treated like royalty whenever Joyce is around.
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.
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.
I Love working with Jeff and all of his bands and bandmates! He's very easy to work with, very fair and reasonable. He and all of his bands play great and give it their all every time they play!
My experience with Yuto, I could say, was life-changing. The amount of not only knowledge, but really feeling of what Jazz and music in general can be, was endless. Yuto treats you as a real friend, and his lessons are both very practical, but also with a theoretical foundation that really provides a real sense of what you are playing or composing. Also, Yuto, above all, is a great human being, with a big heart and passion for music. We ended up recording some things at his studio and continue to be good friends. I will always thank him and consider him to be one of the best musicians I´ve played with and hope to play again soon with him. To anyone that is looking for lessons on Jazz, or classical or any kind of music. I could, with all sincerety say, Yuto is the one for you. -Diego D.
Quick and easy! We needed a voiceover recording for a nonprofit video for a big event pretty last minute - we were in and out in under an hour.
I've seen Matt play several times at a dinner party. Big repertoire, great sound. A very talented man.
I've been at several events where Carol and her band have performed. Each time, she sang a mix of jazz and blues, and she and the band sounded and looked great! The musicians who play with her are really professional. I also noticed Carol is very organized and she kept the evening moving and the crowd was happy. I'd highly recommend hiring her and the band for any event where you want your guests to have a terrific time!
Revolving door band is an absolute pleasure to work with. Extremely talented professional musicians covering an extremely wide range of music. From rock to grunge to 90’s to funk and beyond they covered it all. Especially enjoyed their multi song medleys to keep the energy of the party up all night. Very much look Forward to future work with this band. If you are looking for an extremely versatile band for your event, look no further.
Hired Anthem for a birthday party and it went great. They sound exactly like the bands they cover and put on a great show. They're pro, no goofy embarrassing talk between songs and the price was right. The sound was great and they DJ'd during the breaks. Would definitely rehire. Thanks guys!
