Proctor Entertainment Dj'd our company holiday party. We have had live bands in the past, but decided to go with a DJ this year. Kent Proctor was our Dj of the night, and I received rave reviews from my co-workers. I was told it was "the best party yet" and it was "all because of the DJ!" We have a wide range of age groups and Kent was still able to fill the dance floor right up until the end. Jessica and Kent were easy to work with and extremely friendly.

Recently I was able to take some much needed time for myself and made a pilgrimage to Rochester, NY from IN to visit my good friend Debora Magone. I met her in 82 while living in CA through the martial arts and we became friends there. I was able to occasionally touch base with her over the years until losing contact with her in 97 only to find her in cyberspace in 2010 and we picked up where we had left off only for me to find out that my friend had matured like a fine wine. Deborah is not only a highly regarded sensi of the martial arts, performing and recording R&B artist, music teacher, activist, and psychic ; she is also a compassionate learned sage beyond her years. She wears many hats juggling them all seamlessly while being a wife, mother of two remarkable children, and primary care giver to her aging father. During my visit I was fortunate enough to see her perform twice. The first night was for the patrons of the Italian restaurant " Pane Vino " and I was impressed to say the least, but it was at the " Bug Jar " where she really shined. Two of her young students were there joined by their parents and their parents friends recording the children's performances. Her students were phenomenal and surprisingly relaxed in an adult venue all do to Deborah's teaching and guidance. This night was also a fund raiser for " Radio Free Rochester " and I was proud to be a part of it. My friend was also kind enough to give me a reading that started with a message she got while coming to get me for lunch at " Tony D's." She shared the message as we were on one of the off ramps to downtown Rochester and I was truly taken aback by what I was hearing. I had always believed that there was something on the other side of this celestial plane and now I know there is for sure. The actual reading took place two days later in her home where she made me aware of my own innate psyche and how to listen to and apply it in the future. In short Deborah Magone is one of the finest human beings I have had the privilege of knowing. I feel truly fortunate to be counted among her friends and find comfort in knowing that she is one of mine.

I 've seen Tom perform in bands , ive watched him do solos and and i seen him run Open Mics. This guy can sing and play anything. He is a 'benchmark' for others who attempt to do what he has mastered. He is a consummate professional musician. He's the real deal.

I contacted Jeremy a week before my wedding because the dj we had bailed At the last minute. I never got to check him out until the day of our event. He was wonderful!! He kept reassuring me that everything will go smoothly and to just enjoy my days without worry. He was right on time and everything was wonderful. I was very unorganized but he was prepared and really helped us out a lot! I would definatley hire him again and refer him to my friends and family!

I've worked with Eric in both recording studio and live settings for over 4 years now. He is one of those rare musicians who is able to draw on not only a highly degreed educational background and training, but additionally a true ear and passion for all forms of music. His professionalism and dedication in terms of crafting and perfecting parts have not only breathed new life into songs I had lost my zeal for, but he's transformed our band into something beyond any possible expectations. Eric is a truly world class musician. Steve Pizzuto The Beaumonts

    I took lessons from Dave on and off for a year or so. I truly enjoyed working with him trying to become a better guitarist. He is straightforward, flexible, and fun. I've also seen him live, and it's such a blast watching him perform.
