Phil did an exceptional job at our wedding. He played the steel drum at our outdoor wedding before the ceremony began. He played beautiful music of our choosing on the grand piano during our cocktail hour. Then D J'd the reception while playing a variety of live music on his keyboard and the steel drum. He played music of our choosing as well as requests from our guests. Phil knew exactly what to do and when to do it and performed with little or no direction. Our guests loved Phil and commented on how great he was. He provided and set up all his own professional quality sound and lighting equipment and even video taped his performance and the dancing. Thank you Phil for making our wedding so memorable.

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!

Great wedding band for ballroom dancing We hired Up Front for our wedding in early December 2014. Attentive, friendly, great repertoire, classy in dress and style, They have the talent to perform many different genres which is important for a wedding with guests aging 2-95. My wife and I like dancing, ballroom, Latin, blues and rock n roll; and they delivered. Not only was the music and talent outstanding but working with them through the whole seamless process was easy. We had seen them at 3 previous events and in all they were a hit and pleasant to listen and dance to. We highly recommend Up Front for any function! Everybody loved them.

Hans & The Wanted played our wedding and it was an absolute blast! One of the first things we decided on when we got engaged was that we wanted a live band. We landed on these guys and it was definitely the right choice and a major highlight of the night. Their range is incredible, their pitch is impeccable, and they're a damn good value as well. I wholeheartedly recommend them and I'll book them again any chance I get. Go see them play and sing some live band karaoke while you're at it—it's guaranteed to be a good time!

Most efficient and satisfying DJ service. Google Music database had all but a few songs to choose from and I was able to listen to my entire playlist in order to narrow it down to just the right music choices! Hourly prices and a patient phone conference catered to our needs and left me confident, day of. Our DJ nailed it day of, even coordinating with a live band in a small space and short timeframe. Thank you guys for being such a treat!

You will be thrilled with Dennis! Dennis Hitchcox has been teaching our son for just over 3 years. Our son has learned so much - not just music theory but he's learned to play (and enjoy) the fun stuff: rock, blues, folk, classical and some ear training. Dennis makes learning fun. I love to hear them talking about music. As a parent, it's so convenient having Dennis teach here. And in all this time, Dennis has never been late. He's the perfect combination of professional and friendly. If you're considering lessons, do yourself a favor and choose Dennis. (Just don't take our time slot.)

I started voice lessons with Bre on a bit of a whim, hoping to get brave enough to sing in blues jam sessions. I am so glad I did! My singing and my confidence are improving steadily, in a way that matches my own individual ambition and goals. Bre is also a blast to work with: she is clearly enjoying our lessons as much as I am, and she makes them fun. And here's an added (unexpected) bonus: The breathing techniques I'm learning from Bre to improve my singing are also a totally amazing stress release!

Ms. Velarde is a very talented and passionate musician, teacher, and role model. She takes the time and puts forth extreme effort in giving my son the skills he needs to be a great guitarist and vocalist. We couldn't have asked for a better person for the job.

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.

    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!!
