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!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Obviously, I cannot thank the band enough for the fabulous job at our wedding this weekend!! I seriously felt like we were having our own private concert with all of our family & friends. The songs were wonderful played and beautifully sung. I seriously cannot think of one song that I did not enjoy. I I did all the corresponding with Rob, he was very helpful every single step of the way, answering any question I had over the past 8 months. The band was very professional, courtesy and polite. I would recommend anyone who wants to have an amazing party (especially a wedding reception) to hire this band!!!! The night was ***AMAZING*** Thank you for everything!! Susan & Matthew Connors

Mark Weisman has been my son's piano teacher since he was 11 years old. Alex is now a proficient pianist at age 21. Under the tutelage of Mark, my son advanced from a music student to a true musician. Mark is an engaging teacher who introduces his students to a variety of music genres, keeping classical, standards and popular music all part of the student's repertoire. My son Alex's interest in music was spurred on by Mark's enthusiasm and style of teaching. The Music Workshop conducts annual performances for parents and friends so we can see the progress our children have made. My son is now in college and still studies with Mark on breaks and in the summer. Alex belongs to The Jazz Band at Loyola University as well as his own band. He has played professionally for cocktail hours and theater productions. Mark has inspired Alex to continue his music into his adulthood. Mark Weisman is an exemplary teacher and person.

BD Lenz was the absolute perfect wedding band for us. They were easy to work with, extremely accommodating, and just an unbelievable group of musicians. BD was easily reachable via phone/email leading up to the day, and was completely professional throughout. They really knew how to keep people up dancing all night and even allowed me to come up and play a song with my old band. BD stayed up and played some lead guitar, just such an awesome experience. Music is so important to my wife and I, and there's no better band we could think of to play on our day. Please, please, please hire this band. You won't be sorry!!!

I have been working with Gordon for almost 7 years now. He has taken my guitar playing to new heights. As a guitarist, I am now able to improvise proficiently based on Gordon's ability to efficiently teach improvisation. Recently Gordon taught me the basic elements of Jazz, a genre of music that I was not comfortable playing. However I was motivated to audition for my high school's Jazz Band, and with Gordon's help, I got the spot of guitarist for my junior and senior years of high school. When Gordon voiced that I was at the level where I could begin to teach beginner guitar lessons, I was a bit reluctant and uncomfortable. However Gordon kept pushing me to pursue teaching, because he believes in my ability to show the guitar to others the way he showed it to me. As of now I have four initial students that are starting up lessons this summer. I would never be in the position to teach without Gordon's positive encouragement and help. When I leave for college not only will I be leaving the lessons of a wonderful guitar teacher. I will be leaving the weekly visits of a lifelong friend. Thanks to Gordon Johnson, guitar will serve as an interest for the rest of my life.

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!

What makes my service stand out is a 100 percent commitment to making you learn the guitar. There are many facets to successfully mastering the guitar, but knowning how and when to approach each step varies person to person. I will identify exactly what you want to learn (songs, artists, techniques, scales, theory) and work with you on a personal lesson plan.
