Great Job! Didn't miss on the 80's dance tunes, and was awesome with Karaoke needs of all of our guests. We would recommend again for sure.
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.
Jesse is a consummate professional. Very knowledgeable. All of our shows run smoothly, and we love having Jesse's bands play at Brighton Music Hall in Boston.
We had hired Mike to play at our Fundraiser last weekend...All night we got nothing but compliments about the band from our guests! What a great job!!! We will be reaching out again for his services very soon!
David works with our twin girls (7 years old). All they ever wanted to do was play guitar and he's got them playing songs they love. They can also read music, strum chords, and are actually starting to write songs. The growth since last fall is incredible. He's a great teacher and his Beatles tribute band is spot on. Def check them out!
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.
After taking piano lessons from a traditional piano teacher for 6 years, I needed a change. Steve was the perfect choice. He played at a local piano bar at the time, and I wanted to hone my skills so I could play in bands, too. I assumed he would teach me the ins and outs of chords and then send me off to conquer the music scene, but it turned out he had a real mastery of musical theory, and he held it to a very high importance. He began each of our lessons with music theory - all the basics that make a solid foundation for any musician. Then, he introduced a new concept to something I had been doing all along. He gave me sheet music to learn - tough teaching songs - then after a time, began blocking my view of my hands with paper while playing. Eventually, he'd block my hands and take away the music, teaching me a very important part of playing anything in front of people. You have to know the music inside and out. You can't rely on the sheets in front of you. That's the only way you can truly immerse yourself in the song and let your fingers do the playing. His fees were reasonable and the time was very well-spent. You have to do the work between lessons to get the most out of them. Steve has a true mastery of live performance on every level, and it would behoove any musician, young or old, beginner or skilled, to spend a year in his teaching. We can all benefit from it. I certainly did. I've been in various bands, ever since, and I haven't looked back except to remember who helped me get here.
Tom played his instruments and sang during the cocktail hour, in a very entertaining manner. It was just the right amount of atmosphere. Also, he made an effort to play all of our requested songs during the dancing portion. He kept the party going and he was very personable and easy to work with. I highly recommend him.
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!
The best DJ our group has ever used! On time, in fact early, continuous music for the tastes of Our crowd (and that is quite rare...a DJ assess the audience? What a concept!) Very 0ersonable, quick response to requests, great selection of music! Definitely hiring him again!
The GroovaLottos performed at our wedding. We had them and a DJ. Their music was fantastic as well as their showmanship! they had more people dancing than the DJ did! They were a lot of fun when they performed an original song called "Do you mind if we dance with your date?" that had a line dance to it that the lead singer taught us. Everybody at the reception, including my uncle who walks with a cane, was on the dance floor doing the dance! They promised to help make out celebration a party and they really did. One guest hired them for an event his business was doing and my uncle hired them for his 60th Birthday party.
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.
We absolutely loved Java Jive. We were so lucky to have them at our wedding! They were so flexible and learned a number of new songs for us. The customer service and care was as if we were their only customer. Throughout the planning process they were incredibly responsive and flexible (as our ideas about the wedding music changed). They walked us through the whole process identifying things we hadn't even thought of. They had played at our venue, the Popponesset Inn a number of times and knew just exactly what we needed for setup and for best sound quality. Java Jive is also so affordable in comparison to other wedding bands. By far the absolute best value and price that we could find, yet the quality of their music was outstanding. We totally love this band and have recommended them to everyone!
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.
I hired the New London Big Band for my weekly live Jazz event in Hartford, CT. Not only were they very professional, they played an excellent show. It was so great that one of my recurring customers told me it was the best time they have ever had at the event, and they have been a recurring customer of mine for more than 6 years. I would highly recommend the New London Big Band to anyone that is looking for a great live Jazz act for any occasion.
I had them play at my 50th birthday party and they rocked it! They are an outstanding band with fabulous voices, music and personalities! You just have to hear them! Fabulous rock and roll experience!

Transcending the boundaries of genre, Insigniya has hit the ground running since the bands start in January 2009. Taking influence from a vast range of musicians, Insigniya has been breaking down barriers in creating original music that cannot be classified simply as jazz, rock, or funk. Insigniya is centered on the concept of channeling a special energy through an audience, creating a feeling of freedom and self empowerment, while giving people sounds to bob their heads and move their bodies to. This energy is found full force at shows, and getting it recorded is the ultimate goal when the band is in the studio. With a constantly growing loyal fan base, Insigniya is attracting more and more people to shows, each providing a senses-saturating experience full of high energy. In their third year, the band is unleashing their unique electro-funk-jazz sonic explorations throughout the northeast, having performed at venues, such as The Middle East Downstairs (Boston), Nectar's (Burlington, VT), Sullivan Hall (NYC), and Cafe Campus (Montreal, QC). In Summer 2011, the group made their debut on the festival circuit, performing at festivals, such as StrangeCreek & Wormtown (MA), Disc Jam (MA), Camp Coldbrook (MA), The Big Up (NY), Liberate (VT), Bella Terra (NY), Evolvefest (NJ), Heads In Harmony (ME), Magnetic Gathering (NH), and Lesphestival (NY). Insigniya is ever-increasingly devoted to creating a unique music that pushes the envelope in all genres, while sharing a collective love for music, positive progression, and good times with the masses.
