We created a life-long memory for my husband's surprise 60th birthday party and David and the All Requests Live band were a big part of that! They were so easy to work with. The videos they provided really impressed me and they more than delivered! They talked with the guests to see if they had any special requests and I think they managed to perform almost every one of them from multiple decades and various genres. They were very flexible and at the last minute even hooked up my niece's phone to their system so she could sing a dedication song she'd been working on that we had no idea about. My family is not known for cutting a rug but everyone was on their feet and had the most amazing time. Thank you so much ARL!
The band was excellent, professional and perfect song choices for the event we hosted. I would gladly hire them again.
Ryan taught me both piano & guitar, and I couldn't have had a better teacher! I have been in bands/choirs all throughout my life, and I have been instructed in music by many people. Ryan is very patient, he loves to incorporate the specific music that you really want to learn, he teaches you the correct form and emphasizes it's importance, and he makes sure that your lessons are well-rounded and productive. I wanted to learn a song for a performance, and he taught it to me during the lesson while also making sure we practiced scales, chords, and other skills I needed to work on. I learned so much from Ryan, and would highly recommend him to anyone.
Joe can do it all. No genre or instrument can stop him, and he will slay whatever you put in front of him. And now that he's a bona fide, certified sound engineer, you will not only want him in your band, you want him to record your next album. A great guy, great friend, and a fantastic musician.
My wife and I hired Logan to play at our wedding. He did a fantastic job! He provided all the equipment and even did the leg work to get the band together! It was very little work on our part after the initial meeting with him. And what a talented guy! The music he provided created the perfect atmosphere. Thank you for your willingness and flexibility and for blessing our wedding with your talent!
Thank you for being a part of our wedding. The guys did an excellent job, sounded great. An outstanding overall experience. Highly recommend!
Could not ask for a better band. These guys played at our wedding and kept people dancing all night. They were extremely punctual and went above and beyond. There variety and quality of music was spot on. They were very friendly and if we ever are in need of aband we will def book them again. They by far eexceeded any expectation I had and really contributed to an amazing reception.
Good at this point of time.Will give more details after the Event
He is excellent! A great solid drummer of many many styles, as well as just a wonderful human being. Great to play with, great to be around. He's also a very good teacher. I've worked with him for a dozen years at Marist High School, where he has been my music director for my theatre program musicals, has played and music directed for me for shows at the Cottage Theatre, and is now our music director and lead drummer for FAB Performance's Favorite Album Band.
Hired his band years ago and have hired him annually ever since! Lots of fun, great music and musicianship, and super nice to get along with. They have great energy together, and the lead singer can REALLY belt it out! Wished their playing would never end.
Taska and The Party Band performed at our wedding. They did an outstanding job in every way! They did a great job catering their music to the audience, playing classic older dance tunes to contemporary hits. The musicians are all top notch professionals and did such a great job. A big bonus for us was that Taska gladly took over the role of Master of Ceremony, and kept the party rolling with toasts, first dance, cake cutting, and anything else we wanted. Taska is such a great entertainer, and made everyone feel so comfortable and involved. She even invited some of our guests who are musicians to sit in and sing and play with the band for a few tunes. Everyone LOVED that! I am so grateful we booked this group for our special day! It is so much more fun and personal than a DJ! Thanks again Taska, Cliff and the rest of the group!
I hired Joe's band, The 5th Elephant, for my boyfriend's 30th birthday party. What a blast! Their selection of songs was just what I was looking for. The band had a lot of energy on stage and one of the guys even came out and was rocking out in the crowd during one of the songs. I really appreciated Joe's professionalism and his willingness to learn my boyfriend's favorite song. :) I would definitely hire them again for future parties. One thing I missed was having some slow songs to slow-dance to. Not a problem; just a suggestion. You guys rock!

I offer double bass lessons and bass guitar lessons. I am available to play for studio recordings, freelance groups for special events, musicals, concerts, public or private events. I play classical repertoire, jazz, rock, Argentine Tango, folk music or Americana, with written out music or by ear. I love playing for singers and I also enjoy playing original music. I have two preformed groups to offer: Rough Jazz - with trumpet, alto sax, guitar, bass, and drums. This group plays jazz mostly from the 50's & 60's Miles Davis, Horace Silver, John Coltrane, etc. Tangor is an Argentine Tango group that has violin, guitar, bandoneon, and bass. We play for dancers as well as listeners. Tangos, waltzes, and milongas are the core of our repertoire but we also play Greek folk music, jazz, klezmer, and the Beatles.
