Louis was great. He showed up early to rehearse with my singer, the rest of his bands repertoire sounded great, and overall he was very professional and super easy to work with.
The Matt Santry Band was great! They had our guests out on the dance floor the ENTIRE night... it was packed! I've never been to a wedding where so many people were dancing. The band was upbeat and fun and Matt Santry was a great emcee to get our crowd going! Matt himself responded in such a timely manner and was always quick to help us navigate the wedding planning process. We had a lot of questions and very specific requests for what we wanted to hear, and Matt went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect. We have already had guests and other vendors ask questions about Matt and the band and how to contact them for their own events. Huge hit and would definitely recommend to anyone else looking for a fun wedding band!
We recently hired Scott Samuels, solo acoustic guitarist-vocalist, for our daughter's graduation/birthday party.Scott was professional, courteous, talented and easy to work with; he added a great vibe to the party!

Testimonial for David Joel, Guitar Instructor: My name is Ken and I have been playing guitar for 43 years since the age of 12. I took lessons for about 2 years at the very beginning. I never learned how to read music in the traditional sense, just tab. I have played in classic rock bands over the years. Several years ago I reached a point in my playing that I felt I could not get any better and was playing the same music, leads over and over again. I was convinced that all I could learn was what I could hear or was shown by other musicians. I knew I developed bad technique habits over the years as well. I wanted to get better and began looking for an instructor on-line and found David Joel. A brief review of Davidâs web-site indicated he was well-versed in all styles on electric, acoustic and classical guitar. The backbone of Davidâs approach is based on the Berklee Series Modern Method books by William Leavitt. It requires the guitarist to read and play musicâ¦something I never did and as it turns out contributed to my âilliteracyâ or lack of language or âdataâ as David refers to music. In the 2 Â½ years that I studied with David he completely changed my technique, increased my potential to play a variety of styles and improvise and helped me to achieve many of my goals as a player. He is amazingly encouraging and very real when it comes to students of all ages. I currently enjoy playing in a number of classic rock bands and praise band at church. Thanks David!
I'm a video cameraman and have taped many bands over the years. Philly Heart and Soul ape the best. Great sound alll around from the horns to the vocals they have an incresdsble full sound. For weddings, corporate events or just about anything they would fit the bill
Mark Weisman has been my son's piano teacher since he was 11 years old. Alex is now a proficient pianist at age 21. Under the tutelage of Mark, my son advanced from a music student to a true musician. Mark is an engaging teacher who introduces his students to a variety of music genres, keeping classical, standards and popular music all part of the student's repertoire. My son Alex's interest in music was spurred on by Mark's enthusiasm and style of teaching. The Music Workshop conducts annual performances for parents and friends so we can see the progress our children have made. My son is now in college and still studies with Mark on breaks and in the summer. Alex belongs to The Jazz Band at Loyola University as well as his own band. He has played professionally for cocktail hours and theater productions. Mark has inspired Alex to continue his music into his adulthood. Mark Weisman is an exemplary teacher and person.
My Family has been using Rob Sr since the early 80s. We like that fact that Rob Jr still honors his Father's prices and we still have just as much fun. The photo booth addition was a nice surprise as we did not order it for our son's 12th birthday party (DJ services only). Rob said that he made it a point to show his thanks for our business by giving us 2hrs on the house!
I have been working with Gordon for almost 7 years now. He has taken my guitar playing to new heights. As a guitarist, I am now able to improvise proficiently based on Gordon's ability to efficiently teach improvisation. Recently Gordon taught me the basic elements of Jazz, a genre of music that I was not comfortable playing. However I was motivated to audition for my high school's Jazz Band, and with Gordon's help, I got the spot of guitarist for my junior and senior years of high school. When Gordon voiced that I was at the level where I could begin to teach beginner guitar lessons, I was a bit reluctant and uncomfortable. However Gordon kept pushing me to pursue teaching, because he believes in my ability to show the guitar to others the way he showed it to me. As of now I have four initial students that are starting up lessons this summer. I would never be in the position to teach without Gordon's positive encouragement and help. When I leave for college not only will I be leaving the lessons of a wonderful guitar teacher. I will be leaving the weekly visits of a lifelong friend. Thanks to Gordon Johnson, guitar will serve as an interest for the rest of my life.
Sat in with the band at my daughter's wedding and hit it out of the park! Great musician, great guy.
This group is amazing. The music is intricate, and upbeat. The music weaves back and forth between each musician. You would never guess that the band leader is young by watching his professionalism. Their love for jazz is so apparent not only in the talent expressed in the music but it is a pleasure to watch them perform.
We hired the band to play at our neighborhood block party and they were awesome! Music was enjoyed by all, from young children to senior citizens. They played a great very variety of music including Jazz standards and popular tunes. They were very professional, played as scheduled and at just the right volume.
The James Supra Blues Band is an award-winning 4-piece blues and rock band, playing in the Eastern U.S. Driving rhythm section, blazing guitar, and the awesome harmonica, and vocals of 12x harmonica champion James Supra makes this a band to be seen. Their new album "JSBB Live" is garnering more radio play daily, and sold out of its first printing in mere days. This ain't your daddy's blues band!
