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!

I couldn't say enough incredible things about Scott. He's a true performer. Amazing with the acoustic and making the song he's covering his very own. I hired him to play for my anniversary with my girlfriend. He's not only a great musician, but he has a great heart as well, having regaled the two of us with interesting stories of his life in between his breaks. Two things I really enjoyed was how expansive his song list is and how he added a creative spin to certain covers. Whether it's a whole room or just a party of 2, Scott is the solo musician you're looking for.

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 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!!!!!!

When I think back on how inexperienced and closed-minded I was when I came in for my first lesson with Dan, it reminds me of how patient he was for the last 3 years of working with me. Dan has opened my mind to so many different types of music, and has demanded so much of me as a musician. They say you'll never be satisfied with yourself as a musician, but I think I'm getting pretty close. WOULD RECOMMEND!!

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!

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

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!

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.

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!
