I did not hire him for the party and went with a band outside of thumbtack. But while I was dealing with him, he was very responsive. Thank you
I was a voice student of Julie's for several years. In that time I grew in my skill and confidence as a singer. I learned how control my instrument, and event after the lessons ended, the impact carries on! She also helped me feel comfortable in many genres including country, blues and rock. Julie was always patient with me, even when I was being thick-headed. I always felt encouraged through by her teaching and mentoring. I can say with full confidence that I would not be the singer I am today without Julie!
Loved that Adam is both a musician and a DJ! He was able to play acoustic for our ceremony and then turn our reception into a party as a DJ. Took the decision of band or DJ completely out of the equation because he is truly the best of both worlds. He was easy to work with about song choice and various other customizations. He also MC'ed our reception and kept everything flowing. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a musician and/or DJ.
Jessica is incredible! Skilled as a singer and a teacher, but even more important, supportive and encouraging. I'd had one or two Groupon voice lessons but couldn't really sing with those teachers. But with Jessica, I felt comfortable on the very first day. Already after just 3 lessons I've gained enough confidence to sing into a microphone and have been asked to sing harmony on stage with a band! I recommend her very highly to anyone looking to take that leap into singing because she will truly make developing g your potential a personal quest.
Josh is extremely knowledgable and fun to work with. After our first lesson, I already felt confident in playing basic rock-and-roll grooves, and I'm extremely excited to see where we go from there!
Mike was an excellent DJ and MC at my 40th birthday dance party in Franklin, MA. He accommodated all of my music and scheduling requests, and charged a reasonable price. Many of my guests complimented him during and after the party. If I were to hire a DJ in the future, I would certainly contact Mike.
I literally have no words on how amazing this band is! It was a lucky last minute hire and we totally slacked on getting our homework to them on time but they pulled it out! So nice and responsive. With our lack of direction on how to have the reception flow Paul guided us through and it was great! My guests commented a week later to say they had finally recovered from all the dancing! From my 'I need to hear one u2 song one Elton john song and one Bryan Adams song' managed to play during their break a playlist with them on it including my favorite U2 song! Seriously hire them. Like amazing. I want to have a party with them at it every year. All we could ask for and more
I'm an adult student. David has been working with me since 2009. He's amazing. He has me playing songs I never thought I'd be able to play. He has a real knack for getting to the heart of the matter when it comes to musical expression on the guitar. He's great. Hire him!
Chad was easy to work in planning music and lights for my birthday party. He was open to suggestions and allowed my personality, specific song selections and vibe to shine through ~ Kept everyone dancing all night long with a nice flow of upbeat energy throughout the evening. Everyone had a blast.
I had not picked up a guitar since I was nine years old, which is more decades ago than I'd like to admit. After just five lessons have got back all I had forgotten and moved on to playing melody lines and started finger picking. In addition to a long and distinguished track record as a performer as lead guitarist with Beaver Brown and other musical combos, Gary has studied music academically, so is able to teach beginning students like me, break things down to fundamentals and answer all my questions in a comprehensive way. I am studying folk, country and rock, it helps that he performs and can teach everything, acoustic and electric. I could not be more pleased.
Tom Bruhl was incredibly professional and made my job of organizing so easy! He was a standout entertainer for both the kids and adults. We could not have been any happier with Tom and hope he'll come back for our event next year! I highly recommend him as your DJ and One Man Band - your party guests will thank you all night!
What an amazing night we had listening to the wonderful songs so elegantly played by the band and sung by this incredibly talented artist Gabriela Martina. I would recommend that you hire this band immediately for your event!!! I listened to many demo tracks from local arts for our corporate event in Boston and Gabriela and her band members stood out immediately. They were the perfect choice. Throughout my time dealing with Gabriela, her professionalism and response time were fantastic and was so easy to work with. Our guests were extremely complimentary of the bandâs talent and song selection. This group has a bright future!
My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.
I first heard them at the 2014 Boston Jazz Fest and I hired them for a reception. They were a last minute fill in for the original band we hired. We were all really glad they were able to do the thing. They were amazing. They supplied a range of jazz for the cocktail and dinner period and easily moved into some funky Motown and Isaac Hayesish tunes that kept the dance floor moving.
I studied with Felix for a couple years, and it was an amazing experience. After studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, he went on to play in several noteworthy bands including Shockra and The Heavy Metal Horns and plays professionally frequently today. Felix is equally at home with rock, jazz, funk, and folk and will take the time to understand your guitar-playing goals. Want to learn to play by ear? Check. Read music and play from scores? Check. Immerse yourself in theory? Check. Felix's knowledge of the guitar is encyclopedic, he's patient, and he will make the journey fun. But most of all, with your commitment, you *will* learn to play the guitar.
Dave Hines is an excellent, talented musician. I have had the opportunity to hear him on several occasions, and he has also played for me. He is the consummate professional, an accomplished musician, with an extensive repertoire. Ether as a solo musician or, with a band, Dave Hines will not disappoint!
I am front of house engineer at the Hard Rock Cafe; Elly and the Bear are my absolute favorite performers hands down. They are extremely kind and humble and have a phenomenal sound! I always look forward to working with them, and you will never be disappointed or unentertained by their performances!!
Radio Honey is a truly professional quality live music act. Mike and his band of musicians know their material quite well. They put on a great live show and have very good stage presentation with tasteful lighting and good crowd interaction. I would hire them for any event looking for quality upbeat music with a festive vibe.
As a composer, collaborating with Dennis Shafer continues to be a great opportunity to work with an incredibly well-rounded, sophisticated, and poetic musician. After soliciting my musical intentions, such an impeccably pictorial and wonderfully sincere performance of my music could only have arisen from someone so wholly invested not only in his craft, but in a greater concept of what music can mean. I am eager to be again composing music for Dennis to perform. In the spirit of his teaching philosophy, hes opened my eyes to the thrill of collaborative work. Composers can be recluses, and I needed that eye-opener. His availability, willingness, and capacity to clarify the challenges of writing well for the saxophone makes me a better composer. A chance to work or study with Dennis in any capacity should not be passed up. He is a renaissance man and a worldbeater.
