The Louis Pettinelli Quartet was everything I expected. They played at our wedding reception cocktail hour and all our guests stated how classy it was. We submitted specific songs and his band played it all. I appreciated how flexible and accommodating his was with our request. He was able to honor our desire for a 30 minute opening session with just the pianist and an hour performance with the whole band. I was very surprised when the sax player broke out the clarinet for one the songs. All the band members were professional and respectful. At the same time, you can tell they really enjoyed playing their set. I highly recommend Louis Pettinelli and his musical colleagues. He understands your needs and delivers it with the highest quality, professionalism and respect. Bands and musicians can learn a few things from Louis Pettinelli.

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.

I came to Marty to learn to sign while I played my guitar. I was more curious to see if I can be a recreational vocalist. Marty has been working with me to identify the root note in a chord and how to sign in key. It's amazing what a professional like Marty can pick up on and help me with.

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 have been studying guitar and bass with Stevie now for six months. The progress I have made is remarkable! Stevie plays and teaches five instruments and I have had the pleasure of seeing him perform live........he brings that same enthusiasm and excitement to his students at C-Note music school. Previously I had studied with a few other teachers that used a " one size fits all" method, while Stevie''s lessons are custom fit and tailored specifically to meet my needs,abilities,and goals. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn to become a musician!!!!!

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!

Rad and Kell played our wedding with their full band and the performance was spectacular. From the acoustic set during the cocktail hour, to the full band/DJ combo during the reception, each song sounded great and had everyone out on the floor dancing! Whether they cover songs or play original content, their unique sound makes each experience enjoyable and memorable. I can't wait until I can catch their next gig!

I've had the pleasure of working with singer/songwriter Gary Reed both in the studio and live performances. His song list includes many popular tunes that people always enjoy. He is also a very accomplished fingerstyle guitarist with a giant catalog of memorable songs he has written. Anyone attending one of his shows is in for a major treat!

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.

I am an event planner and I hired Nikolay to play for an outdoor wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was very responsive throughout the planning process and was more than willing to learn my client’s pop song requests in an extremely short period of time. He showed up on time, looking professional. His playing was beautiful and immediately made me smile, even during his sound check. He’s a very talented guitarist and his music brought the exact feel that the bride and groom wanted. Guests were talking about how good the cocktail music was during the reception. Thank you, Nikolay, for making me look good! I look forward to working with you again.

I truly can't begin to say enough wonderful things about this band. The exquisite music speaks for itself. Ron played at my wedding and the entire crowd still speaks about what a class act both he and his orchestra are. He not only had a littany of directions and partial MC-ing to do, but benevolently dealt with my sister who had planned some surprises as well. He is professional, patient, reliable, talented, friendly, accommodating, and downright fun. The band are highly talented musicians and good people. I recommend them highly!

Joe Mixon is the man! He is a phenomenal guitar teacher with incredible talent. He's patient and easy going, but also pushes you to become a better musician. He took parts of songs that I wanted to learn and created drills to improve my timing and agility to make me a better overall player. You couldn't ask for a better guitar teacher, or a nicer guy. Highly recommended!
