Matt did a great job with our event and we received a ton of compliments on the music. He learned two of our favorite songs and was professional and wonderful the whole time. I highly recommend him and his band mates.

Rob and the entire band were absolutely amazing! They MC'd our wedding and didn't skip a beat (pardon the pun :D) They were flexible, really read the crowd well and had everyone on the dance floor the entire night. Rob was easy to contact, quick to respond and very thoughtful about how to put the set list together. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect band for their special occasion and we hope to use them again someday!

Pristine Raeign IS absolutely amazing! They performed for United Way of Delaware's Great Gatsby event. Our original band cancelled at the last second and Pristine Raeign not only saved the day but made us think... why in the world would we book anyone else in the first place?! The party was 1920's themed and it was a one of kind experience to see them transform the songs that we listen to on the radio into a 1920's vibe. My absolute favorite was the sax player. The band was professional, one time, and more than accommodating. I recommend them to everyone! They are true musicians that can make any theme you have come to life in their music!

This band is professional in all ways possible- on time, manners, and knowing how to work the crowd. can’t speak highly enough of this group... but they will definitely be at another party of mine in the future!!! Thank you all!

The Jersey SureCats are a great band and excellent entertainers. They are very talented musicians, and provided great enthusiasm and fun throughout their performance. The song list they provided also helped guide them in playing the type of music we were looking for. Being a professional musician myself, I am very picky about live music. With that said, I give the Jersey SureCats an outstanding rating for their coverage of the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's.

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!

My experience with the Whiskey trail Band was excellent in every aspect. They were responsive from my first contact with them responding to my questions immediately. They arrived early and with almost no direction set up their eqioment and was ready to perform in advance of the start time. I received many compliments from my guests. At the pre discussed time they concluded their live performance and moved their equipment to a new location and became a DJ. They add some colored lights which were perfect. Once again, a terrific job. Took many requests and did a good job balancing the music for 18 year olds and those around 50 years old. Everyone was having such a great time that I extended the DJ time an extra hour. I would confidently recommend them in every aspect!

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.
