As the coordinator and director for Fall Fest at Snyder Park in Springfield (Oct. 14th and 15th), I found Mr. Natural (DJ) to be both professional and responsive to our needs. Of those DJ's closer to home that I contacted, none were able to fit us in at the money we had budgeted for their service at our event. Mr. Natural was more concerned about the success of our festival than the money. (As a non-profit event, the festival focuses on children, giving free hayrides, providing free pumpkins and games, free toys and more.) One big plus was Mr. Natural's talent with the saxophone, he was able to roam throughout the festival playing to background music amplified from the band shelter. This was great and I was able to turn him loose without any special guidance, counting on Mr. Natural to do what he was hired to do. Vendors were very pleased with the results as were members of the festival board. Mr. Natural will be given favorable consideration for any events that we might hold moving forward. (Kent Sherry, Board Member, Hollandia Gardens Association - Host of Fall Fest at Snyder Park in Springfield, OH.)

I've been taking guitar lessons with Christian for about a month now and I can honestly say I'm really pleased with the experience. It's clear that Christian has a love and talent for music and has chosen to share it with others. I've tried to teach myself guitar on and off for 10 years and never got far. Now, a month in, I'm already starting to learn my first song. Christian is organized with planned lessons based on the level you're at and teaches you the tools you need in order to play and eventually even write - including music theory. He's patient, can explain things in a way that makes it easy to understand, and there's never any rush to learn a new step before you're ready which - as a student w/ two jobs - keeps lessons and practice fun and easier to stick with since I feel like I can take my time and learn at my own pace. If you're looking to learn guitar, definitely give Christian a call.

Christian was great! He teaches from a deep understanding of theory, which is exactly what I needed as an intermediate guitar player. We would go over some fundamentals of theory and then practice by jamming. He also gave me a few bands to listen to to broaden my musical ear. Highly recommended for anyone in the Columbus area.

Christian keeps the lessons fun with simple exercises to help you learn and personalizing the lessons with the styles of music you want to play.

Gino is the man! Love working with this dude because he creates a chill stress free environment and as a musician himself, you can tell he really enjoys work. He's got the tools to create a great professional sound and he brings great ideas to the table, but not at all pushy about it. I know we are anxious to finish recording our album with him so we can hear his final mix on it. Should be sick

He was very easy to work with. Understand the music business and can easily understand the direction of the music. He also takes his time to ensure that your paid product is done correctly.

Leo is an excellent live sound engineer with a great ear for music. He can tune each instrument and vocal to optimal frequency and loudness. His equipment is top notch, utilizing an iPad mixing board that allows him roam the venue and adjust front of house levels on the fly. His monitor mix was also what we prescribed but admittedly the tightness of the stage - low ceiling and close back wall - made it hard to control volume levels. It gave the band great comfort and confidence seeing Leo closely monitoring his board through each song until the last note was played. Great feedback from the crowd that night. I would recommend Leo for any live gig.

Tony connected us with Coverstone band. They were impeccable and our group loved them. The desired effect was amazing so we're so appreciative. Tony had a great attitude and when we encountered an obstacle with the venue the event was held at - Tony brainstormed a quick solution for us. It meant a lot to our team that he took care of us to ensure our entertainment was locked in! (Thanks, Tony!)

Tony, one of the piano teachers for Noteworthy Music, has taught my son piano lessons for almost two months now. My son was taking from another teacher and not progressing. Now, he is hugely improved from where he was before and even playing for his school's talent show!

He is a great teacher and gifted musician. H taught me to play piano in my own home. Playing on my own piano did help me learn. Tony was always punctual and prepared for my level of learning. I can't think of any way to improve.

Nothing but praise for Soul Revival! I booked them for our private outdoor party and they were amazing. Our guests absolutely loved them! Gabrielle was even going out and dancing with the kids - how fun! Gabrielle was extremely responsive, easy to work with and they showed up an hour and half early to make sure they were fully prepared. The song list was expansive and an awesome selection. And, to top it out the pricing was very reasonable. Thank you!

Dolce Fuoco was the consummate example of professionalism. I asked Kristen and Meagan to meet me for a clandestine meeting to plan the wedding (As not to tip off the wife to be). They were right on time. I provided a couple examples of what I envisioned for the ceremony. They were then actually able to bring up video samples of the very songs that I was thinking about. We were on the same page the whole way on the style, the performance, timing, and selection. They did an amazing job keeping me in the loop of any new developments. And they were great at rolling with the flow as it related to the theatrics and chaos of planning a wedding. Their performance was everything me and my wife could have dreamed of. My wife was only expecting to have a DJ play the songs for the ceremony. Instead, the ladies were beautifully dressed sitting on top of a rooftop deck with the wind blowing throw their hair like angels. The performance was just as angelic. I was more than satisfied with the value. As a business person and someone who has booked bands before, I knew that these ladies delivered a product far above the cost. You don’t want to leave something as important as your wedding to anyone. I trusted Dolce Fuoco to deliver for us. And they did. We can’t thank Dolce Fuoco enough for the job they did at our wedding. In a time where the stress is high because of planning a wedding, they came through and provided a perfect experience that helped make everything come together beautifully.
