Stevie and John did an awesome job with my party! They arrived on time with all of their equipment, didn't need anything from me, and were super professional so I could keep enjoying the night. Their list of songs was extensive and when my friends came up with songs not on the list, they learned them on the spot if possible! Stevie even figured out Santana's Maria, Maria at my dad's request so we could have a father/daughter dance. Everyone had so much fun that we are talking about all chipping in to make having a private band an annual fun event! Their lights when if got dark made it seem like we were in our own private club. Also, I didn't even realize it until the end of the night- they didn't take any breaks (except when the VERY dark rain clouds threatened!) so the music just kept going and there wasn't a lull in the fun. Stevie turned my fun graduation party into an amazing night!

    Tom transformed me from a mediocre guitarist into a musician. His approach to teaching shows that he more than cares about his students and helps them in more ways than just technical guitar ability. The more you put in to music lessons, the more you get out of them. Tom inspired me to put thought and effort into music and ended up teaching me so much. I'm now a student in the University of Miami's jazz program and Tom prepared me for much more than to play guitar in the program and pass out of music theory classes. With his help I developed a solid base of knowledge and skills and most importantly learned how to think about and create music. I now feel confident to be able to adapt to any musical setting and progress. For example, leading a band or a group of musicians in a jam session now seems a fun task rather than a daunting one. His resume and history of musical and teaching experience is extremely impressive but I actually had no idea about that until over a year or two in to our lessons. He is one of the most humble people I've met in music. There is so much to be learned just by talking to him and hearing his thoughts on music. There is no one I'd recommend more to teach guitar for anyone, absolute beginner through accomplished guitarist. For an hour each week I could tell the thing that mattered most to him was helping me grow. He's also an amazing guitarist.

    Joel is an incredible teacher! He helped me and 2 other friends (who also take classes with him around the same time) to put together a band that was playing live shows after 6 months of lessons. All of us were completely novice musicians. He even learned how to play a new instrument, the Andean charango, so he could teach one of our band members how to incorporate it into our playing. Joel's lessons are fun and disciplined. Exactly the combination you want for making progress and staying invested in learning how to play your instrument.

      Carman Bryant is an amazing vocalist who channels the soul and vibe of Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Mary J. Blige to name a few, not to mention her ability to sing in any style or genre, from soul to blued to jazz to funk.

      The band played during the ceremony for my outdoor summer wedding in Baltimore in Aug2017. Bob and his band were very professional, easy to work with and great value for their services. Highly recommended for events large and small!

          " Alex taught me everything I know on the guitar. I started from absolute beginner and he took me to the level where I am now. He is a real musician who understands what he is doing on the guitar and why. "He will teach you the music theory in a fun way since every concept is directly demonstrated on the instrument. " The result? " Now, the different concepts are attached to a sound and a hand movement in my head. He has developed his own method of teaching the guitar and he will help you with positioning your hands correctly, thus developing good habits right from day one. " He will also encourage you to improvise and write your own stuff right from the start. At first, it sounds crazy (how can a beginner improvise or write songs?) but after a while, it makes complete sense. This allows the student to develop a lot of confidence with the instrument, especially if you have spent hours (like me) at home messing around in a given key, developing your own touch, your own licks on the instrument. "If you are serious about learning the guitar, Alex is the one!" Gary

            We hired this band to play a spring time event for our club. They were fair professional and most important A GREAT BAND. They made the entire event a real party! This is a ten piece band that had everyone up, dancing and having fun. If you need a band to bring your party to life look no further ( the three piece horn section brought a sound you just don't get with most bands). Please feel free to contact me for more detailed view of the event and how they made this a great party. Thanks to the entire group. I would definitely use this group again and highly recommend them for any event .

            Billy and co are top notch. I've known Mr. Martin for a long time and he's played many events at my place in a couple different bands. He's a consummate professional and a good dude. FFRD is unique because they don't really sound like any one band. They're a combination of quite a few different genres, people of all ages will get what they do and they are super tight for such a big band. Hire them.
