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.
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 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.
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!
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.
Vasiliy and his band were amazing at my wedding and guests are still talking about them ! They played a variety of music from modern to classic and it all sounded so beautiful. Vasiliy also spent a lot of time with me helping find the music for the wedding March and ceremony processional. The music we picked worked really well with the theme of my wedding. It is very easy to work with Consonance Music because they very helpful and responsive. I would definitely use them for other events. Thank you so much for my wedding day memorable!!
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.
My husband James and I had the privilege of having Spencer and Sequoia perform at our wedding at a winery in Virginia this summer. It would be a huge understatement to say we were SO pleased with how everything went!!! Spencer and Sequoia were amazingly professional and joyful to work with and super gracious with everything. It was the first time I had worked with a band of any kind so from the second we signed a contract, they were extremely responsive of our needs and questions, provided a very lengthy and diverse song list and even said they would be willing to learn song requests for a nominal fee. Because they're based out of New York, they had to make the long drive the morning of and were totally on board to work with our tomeline and the venue set up. They were also super self sufficient so we didn't have to worry about providing them equipment as they assured us they had everything they needed and required little set up time which proved to be true. We had them perform during our ceremony, cocktail hour AND reception but they did it like champs and our guests could not stop raving about how great they sounded! Not only were they just downright talented, they were a pleasure to have around as well. At one point, my nephew who sung a song for us was experiencing technical difficulties with his sound system so Spencer right away let him use his, which was a total lifesaver. Bottom line- customer service is beyond amazing with this lovely husband wife pair and we are so happy and grateful we could have them be a part of our special day. THANK YOU Spencer & Sequoia!
Marty is an outstanding vocal coach. My 15 year old daughter has been studying under his direction for only 5 months, and I've seen a marked improvement in her range and maturity as a vocalist. Marty has been flexible in working with her hectic schedule. He's been able to help her prepare different styles of performances from rock solos and backup vocals (with Jon Bon Jovi!) to Broadway pieces.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Just started and find that Jonathan is very talented and patient. Never felt this comfortable trying to learn guitar from a teacher before. I am an experienced player and can confidently say he can teach blues both pick and finger style as well as jazz and rock. Peace fellow musicians.. Darren.
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.
I started taking guitar lessons as a beginner a few months ago and am totally happy. Billy has given me a combination of the basics and is also gearing me towards what I want to learn, rock and metal. His explanations are clear and I come away with great notes to help me practice. I really feel like I'm coming along and that makes me excited to keep at it. Most of all, he makes learning guitar fun! Highly recommend!
One Man Matt is a one stop music extravaganza, delivering riffs & arrangements ethereal in nature, enjoyable & pleasing to the heart, soul, and mind of his audiences. Matt is a humanitarian, with an ear for the cosmic harmonies of universal consciousness, as well as good old rock, roll & soul! 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
David and his band are the complete package...excellent new and familiar music, well executed with a very professional manner. Well rehearsed and articulated music.
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!!
As the drummer in my funk band, Middle Blue, Mike provides both an airtight rhythmic foundation and a sense of adventure. In other words, the beat is always concrete, but never *too* straight. He's always doing something interesting or mysterious with it. Also, he's full of surprises. Just the other day, he threw a rhythmic idea at me that I hadn't heard from him, and we've been playing together for over a year. If I were a drummer, I'd be excited to take lessons with Mike.
