Kylah offers a very comfortable environment which is important for nervous people like myself. She was able to plan out our goals, was very flexible with listening to bands I wanted to sing along with for practice, and described how the body is effected when you sing a certain way or how your voice will sound when you do certain things to your body. That extra knowledge is vital if you want to learn to stay healthy and perform strong. Overall, the lesson went very well and we plan to meet again a week from now. Thanks Kylah!
Texas Soul and Rock at its best. With a front man so energetic you are looking for a place to cool down, to intensely talented musicians you cannot spend a better night out than with the Austin TX band Roxy Roca!
Nate was my son's guitar teacher for about 8 months. He did an excellent job of explaining things so that they were easy to understand, as well as using songs that my song liked as a way to teach him. My son's playing improved almost immediately after starting lessons with Nate and he was great at following up with him in between lessons if he ever needed help with something.
I first met Deuce when he came to conduct a rehearsal at my studio. I heard the band throughout and was incredibly impressed by Deuce’s virtuoso abilities on the guitar. I was also equally impressed with the way he interacted with his band mates. He seemed very easy to work with and open to suggestions. I later had the opportunity to actually play with him in another band for a gig and everything I thought I had observed before was confirmed. If you are looking for a guitar teacher, you would be in great hands learning from Deuce.
We can only rave at how great this little band was at my daughter's wedding last May in Austin. David does a great job of communicating and was very flexible with a number of special requests which helped to make it such a great day. They came early, and stayed late, even helping us to pick up afterwards. The music is very precise and FUN!!! Steel Betty played quiet prayerful tunes during the ceremony, and gradually amped up the energy as the festivities followed. Highly recommended! Stephen N.
I booked and ran sound for Matthew Ian at a venue on a monthly basis for over a year. He was always a consummate professional, arriving prepared and earnest to engage our audiences, and reliably delivering a great performance. Matt has a wide range of original and cover material to suit a variety of venues, and also has extensive experience running sound equipment, DJing, and working in various DAWs. I would highly recommend him for large or small events.
We contacted Nic at the last minute (literally days before the wedding because of another Shady DJ we almost got stuck with) for his DJ Service and he was there for us! We truly were BLESSED for everything to have worked out the way it did so that we had Nic Dante to be such a huge part of the most special day in our life... our daughter's wedding! I tell everyone about our 1st conversation...NIC: "Do you have entrance or exit music when they get married?" "Do you have a timeline for cake cutting, the toast, bouquet & garter tossing & the send off?"... and MY answer to everything was "HUH?" I sincerely don't know what we would have done without Nic! Not only is he an Amazing DJ & Entertainer (and thank you for singing a few... So special) but he also felt like a wedding planner! I would highly recommend Nic Dante & his DJ/ENTERTAINER Services to every person I ever meet! And I truly hope we will have a reason to use you again... I'll even make up an event /party so we can! Thank you again Nic Dante! ❤️
We hired Chris Knox, Sr. to play music for my husband's Air Force retirement party. Chris and his lovely wife are kind and humble people. They visited the venue, a private home, in advance (at no charge or obligation) to get a feel for the place, select a place for him to perform, and confirm the music set list, which he e-mailed in advance. Chris himself is retired from the Air Force and a former member of Tops in Blue, a touring performance ensemble made up of active duty members of the United States Air Force formed in 1953. Chris plays gigs as a member of The Azul Experience, a three-piece band. However, for our party, he played electric guitar and sang with a backing musical soundtrack. He arrived early and set up unobtrusively as we prepared for the party. He played well timed songs for the surprise and a touching tribute for my husband's career in the Air Force. The set list was quite varied and included everything from Kool & The Gang to Steely Dan. Everyone LOVED the music and he stayed after his performance to just hang out with us. The fee was extremely reasonable. If you need a fun musician at a fair price, look no further!
I took guitar lessons with Tim a couple years ago before he moved away. I knew his skill and talent from his previous work in bands and it was a no-brainer for me to go to him. His ability to assess where you are at as a student and apply the proper curriculum to help advance you in your craft is what you would expect from a quality teacher such as Tim. If you're looking to open your creativity, you can't go wrong seeking guidance with him. He's got my recommendation 🖒👍
Paul taught piano, guitar, and band classes for our music school for three years before leaving for Austin. He is an excellent teacher and outstanding musician and songwriter. We recommend him highly and miss having him at our school.
I met Zack many years ago and began to receive drum lessons from him. Having no prior knowledge or conceptual understanding, he slowly and patiently introduced me to the drums. Everything was explained in an easy to understand manner and as my skills progressed his lessons were more in depth. Everything from basic music notation and theory to keeping time and advanced drum patterns were covered. Very easy to get along with and makes you feel comfortable at your skill level. Never any judgements and plenty of positive reinforcement. Best drum lessons I've taken!
Beau is an exceptional guitar instructor. He was quick to respond to any questions I had and arrived on time to my lesson. I don't have much experience playing guitar, but I feel we covered a lot of ground during the first lesson. He helped boost my confidence in playing and motivated me to practice during the time between lessons. His pricing was very reasonable and he was able to accommodate to my schedule and location. I look forward to more lessons to come and would highly recommend Beau.
They’re a fantastic band that k owns how to read the crowd!
I run a variety dance band called The Sophisticates based in Austin, TX. Philip and his techs from Head Water have provided consistent, professional service for every gig we've had the last two years. I have dealt with many sound technicians in my 30 years in this business, believe me when I say Philip Ramirez is a rising star in this industry!
I'm Sherah, the writer and lead singer for The Fine Souls. My smokey, jazz-inflected vocal croons against a backdrop of guitar, upright bass and jazz drum kit. I specialize in writing beautiful, danceable love songs, and I write from a wide range of Roots genres: folk, vocal and Louisiana jazz, blues, soul, pop and early R&B, so the music never gets boring or repetitious. My melodies are memorable, and the lyrics are vivid, poetic, and romantic, reflecting all the various moods of love. I've even written a song about a couple who's watching the sunset, enjoying the memories of their wedding earlier in the day! We play primarily our own love songs, but we will also learn and play up to 8 of your choice of cover songs, especially if you have particular songs in mind for the first dance, the garter and bouquet toss, or other special moments. Bonus item: For an additional fee, I will write a song for you that's based on your personal love story, and we will record it as a single to give to your guests. We'll also perform this song as the first dance! My musicians are among the very best that Austin has to offer, and we have been or are currently a part of other touring bands. We have performed at various wine bars, coffee shops and restaurants around town, as well as at the Hyatt, the Austin airport on the Ray Benson Stage, and at the Continental Club Gallery. Please visit my Facebook page Sherah & The Fine Souls to see what we're up to!
