We hired the Michael Benson Band to play at our wedding at Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island. Since we were bringing the band all the way over to the island, we decided to put them to work throughout the entire event! Michael and one bandmate performed a guitar/sax duo for our Ceremony, then Michael played some keyboard music for the Cocktail Hour, and then the whole 5-piece band played for our four hour Reception. Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with both before and during the event! They are all excellent musicians and we loved the music throughout the event. Michael did a fantastic job of being the "MC" during the reception and made sure that it kept its flow throughout the night! We would not hesitate to hire them again! Definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding night!
David is a very knowledgeable musician and teacher. I have had lessons from him in both music theory and a band setting. As a band leader he is outstanding and has helped me to understand the theory behind improv soloing. In the study of music theory he is a vault of knowledge and has broken things down to the smallest part so that beginners like me can start learning and USING the info in practice. The book he wrote is well laid out and very useful both in organization of theory and tools for practice on saxophone.
Miriam was great to work with, cooperative with our inability to pay with cash/check, and the performance was great. We appreciated the background music, but could easily see that the band would be great for a more interactive performance as well. Overall the experience was great!
What a great band and true gentlemen. There were professionals with tremendous talent and crowd appeal. Ideal band for any occasion!
I use Ian for our monthly music and all of our Wine Club releases as well. He is always professional, easy to work with, and always demanded by our guests to come back. If you are looking for the perfect sound, from a dependable musician, look no further. I highly recommend Ian (and his band if you have the space for it) for any event. He can rock any room, and he can also serenade any audience as well. He also brings an audience with him, and his sound draws in anybody within range. And unlike a lot in his profession; he is dependable and always incredibly easy to work with. Thank you Ian!
Band was absolutely amazing and with much better musicians at a lower price than other bands we checked out. They were able to learn and master our first dance songs on a last minute basis, play some unexpected live requests, and even allow our friends to join and sing on a couple tunes. Many people complimented the vocalist and the band in general at the end of the night as well. Highly recommend. I have background in music, and these guys know how to play.
If the Rafael Tranquilino Band has any room for improvement, it's imperceptible to me.
We hired Ryan and his band to play for our wedding. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We asked him to play specific songs, and he wrote out music for the whole group and they performed it perfectly! He made our magical evening truly one to remember. Would highly recommend Ryan and his band for weddings, corporate event entertainment, background music, and anything in between.
We had Michael and his band play for a reception on New years Eve. The whole experience from booking the band through performance and breakdown was great. Very professional group and sounded great! My guests were thrilled. Would definitely use them again.
We had a band drop out on our event with short notice and the Highsteppers were able to step in (ha!) and save the day. They brought a whole live sound setup and looked and sounded fabulous. We are most certainly going to be booking them again for future events.
Lauren was able to accommodate a last minute request to play at my son's rehearsal dinner, when the musician we had hired had a medical emergency. As it turned out, I was SO much happier with Lauren and her harp than I would have been with a Jazz band - she provided the perfect accompaniment to an intimate gathering of close friends and family of the bride and groom. She plays beautifully, and I highly recommend her!
Very professional and talented musicians. Have worked with them several times and will continue to do so. Highly recommend this band!
Love hearing Lindstrom and Company perform! I've gone to so many of their shows and every time is amazing. Beautiful vocals, and great song selections. It's always a fun evening with this band!
A Northwest legend! Danny's showmanship and musicality never disssappoint! His band plays jazz,funk and blues. As a single he is the perfect addition you wedding,backyard or indoo party or event. My favorite
I hired Detour Band for a private party in Everett! They had a lot of energy and I loved how the songs were mixed together. They did a great job at playing music in between their sets and had awesome lighting! I was very satisfied and would definitely hire them again and would recommend them to everyone!! I loved how the singer got out and danced with the crowd in between her sets.. So much energy!! I love Detour!!
We provide a full-service band for weddings and events as well as the DJ and sound. We want your party or event to be the best it can be, and we are here to help.
I do live band music and single singing act with acoustic/electric guitar. I do country rock music mixed with classic rock. I am a lead singer/bass player of the Classic Roads country rock band. I am a lead singer/guitarist of the Hometown Hootenanny show (Grand Ole Opry-type show). If you need a band, or wedding songs accompanied on acoustic guitar, just a single vocalist on acoustic guitar, or some background music with a positive crowd engaging energy, just tell me what you want, what you really really want!
The Craig Lawrence Band is the Northwest's premier party band and has been creating the elements of great dancing and good times for private functions since 1984. We pride ourselves in providing the perfect music selections for your function, whether it is a wedding ceremony/wedding reception, private party, or corporate event. We are able to play everything from soft background dinner music to high-energy rock, including the most current hits. Our band was just selected as the best wedding band of 2013 at Mywedding, and we were in the winning category for Evening Magazine's best wedding/party bands for Western Washington. We are known for pleasing the crowd and packing the dance floor from the very start of the evening until the final dance. We appeal to all ages because of our ability to perform such a large variety of music, which includes the following: current hits, classic rock, oldies rock, big band, swing, Motown, disco, funk, country, jazz, Latin and ethnic music.
I guess that would depend on which service we're referring to here; as far as karaoke goes I feel that it's because I add to the performance of the singer by playing assorted instruments, backing vocals, and an above average mix. These things combine to create a much more authentic feel for a singer. As far as instruction, I use a much more informal and flexible style that I feel is less rigid for a new student and allows for more creativity and enhanced advancement.
We are a mature band that plays at the appropriate volume level for the venue/occasion. We have a relaxed, informal presentation that encourages audience participation.
Visualize your event with our vintage, classy and sophisticated music drawn from the 1920s and 1930s. We bring alive the Gypsy Jazz of France and the American Swing standards of prohibition era Harlem, and we also have Latin sambas and bossa novas, all to swing dance and sway to. Our music will make your event special. We have performed for weddings, corporate functions, anniversary receptions, birthday parties, festivals, restaurants, swing dances and more.
