Sam is a great voice instructor. He is experienced in both classical styles and traditional and contemporary R&B/Jazz styles and has performed with numerous popular acts such as Tony Bennett and Aretha Franklin and was a successful contestant on MTV's Making the Band reality show. As an instructor, he stresses the fundamentals in his lessons and helps students to develop a solid foundation upon which they can build performance techniques. He teaches students artistry as well as technique. In addition, he is often encouraging and energetic in his lessons and is very friendly. For students of pop/R&B/jazz standard singing, he uses Michael Buble as models for students and likes developing a round, solid sound rather than the strained vocals seen in most of today's pop music. This helps students with damaged voices to improve vocal production technique and find ways to repair their voices.
I had the pleasure to work with Xen Live on May 14th, 2018 at Richland Golf Club, Middletown MD. He was very professional in every aspect: setting the speakers and the microphones ahead of time, providing a high quality equipment and being attentive to all the musicians including a singer, pianist, and violinist. The volume level was properly adjusted and the ceremony went as smoothly as possible despite the fact there was high wind at the site. I can't wait to work with Xen Live again, and highly recommend his business to everyone who is looking for a perfect wedding. Zhenya Zianouka, violinist pixieviolin.com
Alyssa is a great instructor because she gives me a biological understanding of the mechanics of my voice. Where other instructors rely on cheesy nonsense ("sing more from your heart!"), she explains to me what is actually happening in my body and trains me on how to control it. It is requires hard work, but the payoff is there. Each month I hear significant improvement in my voice and my friends do to. In less than a year I've gone from being a shy singer, to a comfortable performer.
Ms. Nicole Lamm was my very first voice teacher. I started taking voice lessons with her at about age 13, and continued for over 5 years, for all of 8th-12th grades. Being at the most beginning stages of singing, Nicole not only introduced me to a genre of music that I never thought I would sing, but that I would easily fall in love with. She brought me from an inexperienced child to a young lady, preparing me and instilling in me musicianship, work ethic and and a passion for classical music, including art song, musical theater and opera. Her teachings are affective for anyone, young or old, beginner or professional. Because of her patience and time spent with me all those years, I have been singing for over 10 and am continuing my studies as an opera singer, a career that began with her and will last a lifetime.
Steve played at our wedding on October 1st. We had our guest arrive about an hour before the ceremony and Steve entertained them on the patio area while they enjoyed appetizers and drinks. Our guests then moved to the front of the plantation home we had rented and Steve moved to his 2nd set up he had there to continue entertaining our guests before switching to music for the procession. After the service, Steve again set up on the patio and played for several hours. The music that Steve played was perfect over dinner and the hours that followed. Later in the evening, Steve allowed the younger guest to play dance music through his sound system that got the crowd dancing late into the night. While we told Steve multiple times that he didn't have to stay, he graciously stayed well past the time we had agreed upon without asking to be compensated (we did on our own). We have received many compliments from our guest about how great Steve was. We would highly recommend Steve for your event. Steve --thanks for making our wedding so special!!! Paul and Tracy
Mike played during my ceremony at my wedding. He was on time, well dressed and set up in a timely manor. We had some odd requests like imperial march for my husband and the groomsman since he's an insane star wars fan, then 2 becomes 1 by spice girls for me haha. Mike did those two songs great and of course the " god bless the broken road " by rascal flatts .. perfect. I cried the whole way down the isle! haha
It's amazing watching the progress my daughter has made since working with Annie. She looks forward to her piano lessons. Annie is very good at adjusting the pace of the program to what works best for each individual, and my daughter loves the encouragement stickers she gets for her accomplishments.
We had such an awesome time with this group. We had a neighborhood picnic on Saturday and I'm still getting emails from attendees about The Marquees. Great band and great singers. They showed up well in advance to make sure they were set up by the time we had them scheduled to play. You will not go wrong if you hire this group - original back up singers for Marvin Gaye. We have asked them to come back for our next annual picnic. Fun and more fun! ❤️🇺🇸
I am the head of the vocal dept. at Hillsdale College in MI. Sadie was an accompanist in my studio for four years. She was always prepared for my singers and spent time outside of lessons to help them and rehearse with them. She is extremely musical and is an excellent sight reader. She has a very affable personality and is very fun to be around. I would recommend her for any accompanying job as well as teaching of younger students. She is relialbe and well versed in much vocal music as well as piano literature. Sometimes she takes on too much and that is the only thing that I would have her work on to better her performance. That was in a college setting which can be very stressful when combined with other studies. In the professional world I don't think that would be a problem. She is a very well rounded musician and would be able to excel in many venues. I recommend her most highly.
Ron gave me a lot of help when I was learning to accompany singers and saxophone players. He showed me chord configurations that made me sound like a pro. I was asked to join a jazz combo. He was also great at accompanying me as a singer.
I highly recommend Simon for your wedding, funeral, or other need. I was blessed and honored to have Simon provide the music for a funeral service earlier this year. With Simon's talent as a vocalist, as well as his skills as a composer, pianist, organist, and accompanist, the music was superb. He worked with me closely on the planning, and his suggestions for the service were excellent, including the addition of a soloist with whom Simon had worked. Many people told me afterwards how much the music touched them and uplifted them on a sad occasion, and I was touched and uplifted as well.
Every time I have seen Jim perform, he lights up the stage. Very professional performance and leaves you smiling. Always a pleasure!
Todd Baker is the violin teacher of our 10 year old daughter. We reached out to him when we realized that she was not learning enough in her violin group in school. His individualized approach, great skill with children, patience and flexibility across a variety of different music styles has really helped our daughter advance. She loves going to her lessons and comes home inspired. We're very happy with this arrangement.
The band sounded great—very together, able to perform in many styles, high energy and great sound. They also were easy to work with, good humor, excited about the show. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing and working with them again!
Michelle and her band were amazing. The singers and band members really put on a spectacular show. I would recommend them to anyone. I can't wait to see them perform again.
Mrs. Reid Bonzagni is a wonderful musician. Her projection and voice preservation techniques are tested and proven. She is incredibly personable and has a great deal of patience when working with students and less experienced singers. I would recommend her services to any musician looking to further develop their skill set.
I am a professional psalmist. I have been singing since the age of four. I am currently the minister of music of the Solid Rock Full Gospel Baptist Church Ministries International. I also serve on staff at the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church and held positions of praise and worship leader/choir director for over 14 years. Lastly, I am a solo artist in my own right and have sang with and background for many well-known gospel artists over the East Coast. I love singing and lifting people's spirits, for I found music is good for the ear and heart. What makes my business great is when I satisfy Christ, He, in turn satisfy people on my behalf through the gift He has entrusted me with.

I am an R&B artist from Baltimore. I am currently finishing up my first album by multi-platinum producer Herb Middleton. I sing, write song, arrange and produce. I honestly have a gift for melody creation. I also have my own band. We perform songs ranging from classic soul, i.e. Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Eddie Kendricks, Stevie Wonder to contemporary, i.e. Maxwell, D'Angelo, Chris Brown, etc. Most people in the area call my sound "New Age Motown".
I am a studio bass player of all styles. I'm versatile. I can sing backup vocals and play some piano as well. I have 32 years of experience.
I've spent years studying my craft. I genuinely focus on the entire record n how it feels.
