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!

Jonathan is an excellent and relateable teacher for my teenage daughter, Kristina. She really enjoyed her lesson with him. He gives a comprehensive lesson and explains very clearly so that the lesson flys and seems effortless. It is clear he has a strong background in music education based on the different areas he covers in the lesson. I highy recommend him. He is calm, flexible, patient, has a nice sense of humor. He is very knowledgeable and he knows how to teach!!!!!!

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 David’s web-site indicated he was well-versed in all styles on electric, acoustic and classical guitar. The backbone of David’s approach is based on the Berklee Series Modern Method books by William Leavitt. It requires the guitarist to read and play music…something I never did and as it turns out contributed to my “illiteracy” or lack of language or “data” as David refers to music. In the 2 ½ 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!

The Jersey Surecats drove about 70 miles in a snow storm for my daughter's wedding. They provided light cocktail music. Then played a wide variety of toe tapping dance cover songs. They were the life of the party. In fact, several guests inquired about them so that they can hire them. They even learned several songs for the wedding. They were cooperative and went the extra mile for us.

Ron Sunshine performed at my wedding on Long Island. To this day (19 years later!), people will still announce that it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended and always mention the "great band". Ron was a pleasure to work with, straight forward on all fronts, no surprises. The band was a group of professionals from New York with stellar credits. I highly recommend Ron Sunshine for any event. The material was first rate, danceable, and spanned decades (a little something for everyone).

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!

    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.
