Phil Greek was an excellent wedding dj. I found him last minute and everything worked flawlessly. have never hired a dj before but using Thumbtack saved our wedding day. Phil has an amazing music library and was able to find all of our songs. He was very flexible with schedule and kept to his word and more than delivered.
Alisdair is currently providing music consulting for our band, Dreadlight. We we're very impressed initially by how excited he was to work with us and how even at the first phone call, really understood our sound and showed a genuine interest in our musical path. By the first meeting, he had studied nearly every aspect of our work and provided clear and helpful feedback on our current songs. He gave us new and enlightening insight on our instrumentation, vocals, lyrics, and overall sound in an impressively organized and detailed way that spoke to us and strengthened our vision as artists. He told us our strengths and weaknesses honestly and helped us identify key elements in our work that define us. Overall, working with Alisdair has been an enlightening, inspiring experience that has even further strengthened our passion for music. We look forward to continue working with him and growing not just as artists, but human beings as well.
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 had All Request Live, Inc. DJ our wedding. They were absolutely amazing! Dave and his team are quick to respond to your emails and phone calls. They were extremely helpful and friendly. During the wedding they did a phenomenal job with song choices and as well as keeping to the schedule we had planned for them. Many of our guests told us how much they enjoyed the DJ. I couldn't be happier with our choice! Thank you All Request Live, Inc. for making our wedding so much fun!!!
With just a few days before I was supposed to sing for a wedding, I sought out an instructor through thumbtack to give me some feedback on how I sounded. Greta was the first to respond and her rate was very reasonable, so we set up an appointment. Unfortunately Greta suffered a fall on the day of our appointment, had to go to the hospital and subsequently cancel our appointment. With just a day before the wedding I had resigned myself to being as prepared as I could be on my own, and to just "get through it the best I could." Much to my surprise, Greta called me the evening before the wedding and offered to do a skype session free of charge in lieu of our previous appointment. The session was helpful and informative, but most of all, Greta's sweet and gentle encouragement helped me feel more confident then I would have otherwise. I was very thankful for her taking the time even though she was still recovering from her fall. She went above and beyond!
I worked with Shannon and he was everything I could have hoped for and then some. I had an unusual request of learning a song to play for my wife at our wedding and had zero experience. He taught me the basics and then he broke the song down into chords and away we went. He had me completely prepared come wedding day and even brought and set up my keyboard as this was a surprise. He also provided some tips on the singing aspect as well. Him and his wife are incredible people and I'll never forget the impact they had on my life and our wedding day. Do not hesitate for a second to hire him for ANY goal you have regarding piano. Thank you again, Shannon!
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.
Attila has taught my son in the last 6,5 years. They spent lot of memorable lessons together starting with simple children's songs ending with Blue bossa jazz standard. He is patient and has good sense of humor, wide range of music styles. Thanks to his work my son plays the guitar very well and he is the guitar player of the Big Band at the Music School. Highly recommended teacher.
Scott DJ'd at our wedding about a week and a half ago & did an awesome job! He was able to integrate the songs we asked him to play with a nice variety of other music as well as the requests that our guests made. He honored our request to keep our special event very low key & family oriented. He is also very affordable. We would DEFINITELY recommend Scott to anyone looking for a DJ for any special event.
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.
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.
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.
Chris is truly a champ! He was taking requests and making changes for my wife and I within the last few hours before our wedding. He was kind enough to go above and beyond what I could have expected from him and even provided us with some ceremony music for our outdoor wedding. If you want reliable, professional, and courteous DJ services, these folks are simply the best!!!!
Kent played for our ceremony and cocktail hour and everyone loved him. I knew that when we met him for the first time, he would be the one to play at our wedding. He is really easy to work with and has a great songs. Thank you Kent!
My husband and I hired Ryan to perform at our daughters wedding reception this past fall. We first heard Ryan perform at the Portland Airport while waiting for our plane, and were immediately attracted to his beautiful music. We approached him and he was gracious enough to take the time to talk with us and answer all our questions/concerns (and gave us a free CD so we could listen to his music in-depth). We were sold!! Ryan is a very gifted and talented artist. His repertoire is extensive and varied and includes many the best known classical pieces, as well as some of his own beautiful compositions. Please consider hiring Ryan Walsh for your future events .we are so glad we did! Carrie M.
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

Beltaine Dual dulcimers, guitar, flute and marimbula offer a unique and bright sound to Celtic and traditional music from around the world. Beltaine is a Northwest trio that shines as bright as its name. There is a strong synergy among the members of Beltaine, as all members play both melody and harmonies on multiple instruments. The music is eclectic but not electric, with emphasis on traditional dance music and powerful songs. In live performances, Kris, Brian, and John keep it light and lively with spritely tunes, stories, and jokes soon everyone gets to be a part of the magic of Beltaine. The bright and festive sounds of acoustic guitar, hammered dulcimer, marimbula, flute and penny whistle combine in folk-inspired arrangements, with dance-like qualities and a celebratory air throughout.
