Phil and Laura were excellent. Everybody at our private party enjoyed their talented music. They were very responsive to the needs of our guest (i.e. kids, special request). Thanks!!!
As a vocalist in a worship band I wanted to improve my voice so I joined Sofia's lessons a year ago. My voice became definitely more stable after a couple of months and she helped me to discover my real register. Besides practicing scales she recommended me songs from different styles which I'd not thought before that I could ever sing. She gave me useful instructions how to perform. Because of her sensitivity she found the best personal examples for me. It was really a pleasure to take part in her lessons. We had lots of fun.
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.
I've been playing music with Rory for close to a year now. While I've never taken lessons from him, as a fellow band mate I continue to learn while playing with him. Besides being an exceptional player, he also exhibits a calm and welcoming demeanor that every student will appreciate.
DJ Katie was absolutely amazing! She was smart, funny, creative and understood our wants for the music at our wedding and over-delivered. She truly worked with us to make our Wedding soundscape exactly what we wanted. She was unique, interesting and engaging---not just the typical cheesy DJ you see too many times at weddings. In fact several guests later asked me if it was possible to get a playlist of the songs she played. I cannot recommend DJ Katie highly enough. If you are getting married and need a DJ stop reading this and go hire Katie. It will be the second best decision you make on your wedding day.
Pressure Point was an amazing band! They were professional, talented musicians and kept the party going all night. Many of our guests commented that they were the best wedding band they have heard and enjoyed dancing to all the music they played. We would highly recommend Pressure Point Band for any event.
My Daughter went from never playing an instrument to being proficient on her trumpet in 8 months. Her band teacher is so impressed. Much of her understanding of music comes from her voice and trumpet lessons with Ms. Valardi. She is branching out into piano this summer and has even attempted to write her own solo. A music teacher that understands the excitement of a student and balances that with foundation is a wonderful thing to find. Ms Valardi is just that.
Drivingsouth Music were fantastic! They were flexible and easy to work with. Their performance was relaxed, enjoyable and perfect for our annual community park event. Many of the guests commented on how amazing they were and wanted to know how I found such a great band.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Nathan for 8 years. He is an amazing guitarist and an even more amazing teacher. His knowledge of theory is unsurpassed. He can play all styles of music and explain it and teach it to you in an easygoing, fun way! I absolutely love my time with Nathan and look forward to each lesson. His band (Tango Alfa Tango) is awesome. I highly recommend Nathan for anyone and any level!
Sarah did a one on one workshop with my daughter's band, Death By Thumb. She was able to connect with them immediately and help them sort out some issues they had as a band. Then they went right into song writing. Polished off one and started another all in a two hour period. One song called Mirror was performed just a few weeks later at the Analog Theater in late November. The band members have a lot respect for her and admire what she is doing with her own career. The kids want her to come back as soon as possible! Thank you Sarah, and we hope to see you soon!!
Carlos is an amazing guitar teacher! Our son learned so much over the years with Carlos & currently plays in two high level Jazz Bands! Thank you Carlos! xoxo The Ball Family
We are Portland's premier classic rock, R&B, and nostalgic music band that's available for clubs, casinos, weddings, corporate parties, or any event. If you need great music played by awesome, highly talented musicians, call us!
We do music. We are an experienced band that will cater your event with music that you desire. We offer oldies, rock, country, blues, jazz and pop music genres.
I can have music produced and recorded. I play on drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, and have a lot of studio gear. I am looking for an online job. I do mixing or mastering too.
Our band provides live music entertainment. We perform for nightclubs, weddings, private parties, community events, and special functions. Our genre of music is r&b, funk, blues, smooth jazz, Latin jazz, and bosa nova.
We are a multi musically talented band. We play bluegrass, country, originals, and some past covers. Our instruments include fiddles, guitars, banjos, dobros, mandolins, and an array of rhythm instruments. We play for company parties, weddings, social gatherings, bluegrass festivals, folk festivals, fundraisers, etc. We provide top level entertainment for a great price!
Three things: First, our song selection. We don't perform a song unless we're both really crazy about it -- and we find that our audiences relate very well to the music we choose. Second, Matt's banjo and dobro playing. He's simply great on his instruments. Third, our vocals. We believe that harmonies are a special attribute of music, and we work hard to make them both precise and musical.
We're a female-fronted rock band, bringing a combination of classic and modern rock. Imagine the soul in Bad Company meets female angst of Alanis Morissette. We entertain children's birthday parties, wedding anniversaries, and just-rock venues. We guarantee smiles on your lovely faces! Grandpas can rock with us!
