Louis and his team did an excellent job for our annual colleague awards gala. Louis was a great communicator before the event to learn the details surrounding their gig and it helped put us at ease with the many moving parts required. We requested the band play music during a cocktail reception and dinner service and they provided the perfect variety of songs and utmost professionalism for this event. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for jazz musicians.

Matt played for my wife's surprise 40th birthday. The play list was phenomenal and spanned over different decades if music (70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's). Great vocals, great instrumentals, and great personality. All of our guests raved about the performance and we had about 68 people.

Wow! We had an amazing wedding on August 16th and Scott was a huge part of it. He was extremely professional, fun and his music set the mood for the entire event. Of all of the feedback we received, everyone gave rave reviews on Scott. I would highly recommend Scott as he was truly amazing. His wide range of music, his musical talents and his attitude were all great. We had two songs requested that kids wanted to sing that Scott didn't know how to play. Scott went and took and taught himself both song in about ten minutes and played the songs for the kids.

John has been a perfect teacher for me because of his profound understanding of music theory and composition. John has a degree in music from Berklee and those concepts are brought to life in our lessons. My musical understanding and ability has skyrocketed since our lessons began. Prior to us starting, jamming with other musicians was incredibly intimidating. Now I have standing weekly jam sessions with multiple groups and am able to old my own and improvise well at each. I have become the teacher for many of my friends who I previously thought were years ahead of me in musical talent. If you have the hunger to learn guitar, John is your guy.

Nite Flyte is an accomplished group of musicians which can provide the type of music to suit the taste of everyone! I very much enjoy listening to them wherever they play in the Lehigh Valley and personally believe they are one of the few bands with the vocals and "sound" which is equivalent to the original artist - in essence an excellent band!

Jonathan Tice is a very talented musician and music teacher. He student taught in my General and Vocal Music classroom this winter, 2014, and proved himself to be a very caring and dedicated teacher. His musicianship is exceptional, and he is able to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of his students. He is patient as well as intelligent. He sets very high standard for all of his students and helps them to achieve those standards.

I requested a violinist to play two songs graveside at my father's funeral. It was very important to me that everything went smoothly, and the violinist sent by Elegance Quartet was exemplary. She was there and set up and ready to go when we arrived graveside. Her renditions of the selected songs were perfect - absolutely right tone and mood struck. I even slightly switched up the start time of the second song on the fly and she didn't miss a beat and even, if I am not mistaken, played a few extra verses to fill the time appropriately, which was most appreciated! It was a small, private family funeral, but everyone in attendance agreed that the music was a perfect tribute to my father. Many thanks to the violinist (I was distracted with so much else that I forget her name.. my apologies, but she was really phenomenal) and to Elegance Quartet!

Mr. Young is an extremely driven and professional musician and educator, who thoughtfully and thoroughly approaches every problem he encounters. What I admire most about him is his willingness to explore and find the most efficient and beneficial method of learning, teaching, or playing, rather than follow what is "supposed" to work.

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!

Mr. Raval is a wonderful teacher. He knows exactly how to make you a better player and musician. He was only my teacher for a year, but in that year I became a much better viola player and learned how to play from my heart, as well as from my head. -Hannah, Yardley, PA

Dorothy played violin for my September wedding ceremony as well as the violin part for our first dance song. She is a true professional and an all around pleasure to work with in any capacity! Her skills with the violin have only increased over the past few years and she is an absolutely beautiful player. I could seriously listen to her playing all day. Additionally, Dorothy was very helpful in picking out the music for the ceremony. I have a lot of experience singing with choirs during Catholic masses but I was overwhelmed by trying to select pieces to use during our mass and wedding ceremony. Dorothy and I Skyped, she played little segments to remind me of the songs and then we made our selections together. Thanks to her guidance, this process was quick and painless. She also worked long distance with the church music director and I heard only positive feedback from the other musicians and church staff. Even with being states away from me and the church, Dorothy pulled off a beautiful set without even breaking a sweat. I can still hear the sounds of her beautiful violin on our wedding day and it brings such joy to think about. If you are considering Dorothy for any project, do not hesitate. She is the best decision you could possibly make!

The Verdict played at our welcome dinner in VT the night before our wedding for around 150 guests. They were amazing, and exceeded our already sky-high expectations. We and our guests had an awesome time, and we have The Verdict to thank for it! They are extremely talented musicians, and you can tell they love to play together; there is a soul to their music that is not typical of most bands. They really read the mood of the crowd and make sure everyone is having a good time – they played softer background music during cocktail hour and dinner, and then switched to dancing music after dinner that got everyone out on the dance floor. They are true entertainers – getting everyone at the event out of their seats dancing, laughing and celebrating. John, the band leader, was a pleasure to work with and was extremely flexible and responsive. He answered all our questions beforehand and worked with us to make sure the evening was exactly what we wanted. They sound amazing – their song list is extensive and varied, and they can play anything from roots reggae to pop with a great reggae vibe. We highly recommend the Verdict for any party or event – they were a pleasure to work with and will make sure everyone has an AWESOME time. -Emma & Jeff

Verified review

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.

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.
