I had the pleasure of booking the Pettinelli Band for a garden party. The musicians showed up long before the scheduled performance and are quite gifted and talented performers. The Band was a big hit. As a result, others have inquired about how to book them for future parties. I would definitely book them again.

We found Scott on Thumbtack for our marriage celebration yesterday. Scott is a fantastic Musician that has an extensive repertoire of music that entertained all my guests of varying ages 17-88. He's very personable, likable, professional, and punctual. He enjoys playing so much, he barely took any breaks. He even brought an extra microphone for open mic time during his breaks. We appreciated how he stayed with us afterwards and jammed with our friends around a fire pit. We would definitely hire him again not to mention that our friends will too.

In one word to sum up this band is PHENOMENALl!!! I hired Pristine Raeign for a corporate brunch event that took place at the Four Seasons Inner Harbor Baltimore. I asked for the band to perform the top billboard hits in a post modern jukebox style. I drove to Delaware where they put on a full on performance for me...down to the attire. I was blown away! I hired them immediately and the compensation was very reasonable. Tina the band lead was professional, responsive and was open to all of my suggestions. Super easy to work with. They showed early and was prepared well before start time. Needless to say the crowd LOVED them. The vocalists were on point, drums, pianist, and guitarist were amazing. There was a brass player who played at least 6 different brass instruments and the violists was a delight. I would certainly hire this band again for another event. The hotel also asked for their information to recommend the band to clients for other functions. So did some of our VIPs in attendance. My boss was pleased with the entire brunch and it definitely turned the heads of our VIP clients and executives. Trust me, this band will not disappoint!

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!

We (Carlino's Specialty Foods) hired PHS for our 10th Anniversary Party in West Chester in October, 2017. They were beyond what you pay for! Great bang for the buck. Large band and you can tell each member was having as great a time as all the party attendees were. They were so well reviewed by all the best! Would recommend them to anyone for business parties, weddings, etc. Thank you Philly Heart & Soul!

Gary performed for a surprise birthday party at our home for about sixty guests. I received many complements for his music throughout the night and days later, so I know the guests enjoyed his music very much. He set the right mood through his song selection and playing style - it was great listening and really made the party a special event. I would hire him again in minute and recommend him strongly.

    About

    I try to make every wedding spiritual, fun, and personal. I like to meet with the couple prior to "committing marriage". I try to keep the marriage ceremony under twenty minutes and at the same time convey the seriousness of marriage. I feel it is important (but I have gone without) for me to meet with the couple and go over their wishes and talk about marriage.
