I came across the Aqua-Nets at a charity event where they were playing 80's music. I had been debating having a 50th birthday party and having thoroughly enjoyed my evening, I booked the band for my party. The band manager made the planning very easy. The band were professional and really created a great atmosphere for my party. All my guests had a great time and mentioned how they hadn't danced in years. I would highly recommend the Aqua-Nets for your event. The performers will entertain your guests and I have no doubt they will make your event a complete success.
Before we ever started wedding planning, I always thought we'd go the DJ route when it came time for our big day. For some reason, I didn't think most bands could do my favorite songs justice. Then, we saw the Michael Benson Band in action. When we finally got to planning our wedding, one of our "must-haves" was a good dance party, so it was never a question that MBB would be part of our day. We even tried to keep it a surprise to our guests, many of whom are familiar with Michael and his performances, but once we let it slip, our friends could barely contain their excitement, knowing that an especially fun wedding was ahead of them. Michael was an absolute professional from day one, humoring my bridal anxieties and accommodating some very special requests, including our first dance -- a Phish song covered by Dave Matthews (the perfect song to appease both bride and groom!). And what a dance party it was! High heels were removed, jackets and ties taken off, Gangnam Styles and lassos appeared, and guests who claim they "never dance" were mysteriously summoned out to the floor. We never wanted it to stop. Thank you, Michael Benson Band, for being such a huge part of what made our day so perfect!
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.
Good Co played the reception at our annual conference and did a great job setting the mood. Our event was smaller than we had originally expected, but the band played on like it was a packed house. Everyone in attendance really appreciated their performance and I couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere than what Good Co created. Great music, a great presence, and worth every penny!
The Rafael Tranquilino Band is one of the most versatile and exciting bands I have ever seen. Rafael's guitar work is inspired and he never ceases to blow me away! He also never plays a song the same way twice. You just never know what he's going to do. He is my favorite guitarist! Leah Tussing's vocals are this very cool combination of jazzy blues that brings a completely new vibe to every song she sings. Love her! They are a dynamic duo with some of the most talented rhythm sections in the PNW. I never miss seeing them when they are in Tacoma.
I hired this jazz combo to play during the reception at my wedding and they were fantastic! They showed up on time, they were very professional, musically they were tight, and they came practiced and prepared! Not only did they perform above and beyond the day of, but they also took time to talk with me and make sure we were all on the same page of what I was expecting from them and the style I was hoping for. I didn't really have specific song requests, but mostly just explained the style I was going for and left it up to them to put together a good mix. They did not disappoint! They met my expectations and went above and beyond, and they really put that final touch on the reception that I was hoping for! :) I highly recommend them!!
Pyramid Scheme was everything we hoped for and more. The interaction with them before, during and after the performance was perfect. Their repotoire is excellent, they adjusted the sound level right to the size of the room and the crowd, normal discussions were still possible without loosing any intensity of the songs played. Even joining the band to play a few numbers together using their instruments was possible. Would definately hire Pyramid Scheme again if we need entertainment in the area.
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!
Max was great to work with and I would love to hire their band again in the future!
He is the best guitar teacher! Especially if you are into theory side of the music. I'm a singer with a degree in music, but he still has so much more to teach me. He'll show you the right path to take you to the next level. Also I've seen this guy shred on his acoustic guitar. I'm pretty sure he has more than 2 hands and 10 fingers. By hiring him as a solo guitar player for your event, you will get like a band worth of complete sound.
They did the best classics, and new stuff too, it was so fun! So nice to have a real live band and not a DJ. We were getting compliments on the band all night. Such a great time! Thanks Highsteppers, you rock.
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.
I came to Nathaniel mid-summer 2013 to begin beginner lessons after careful consideration of his skills. He is so accomplished! After adjustments to find the correct guitar (left handed) we finally got down to brass tacks and I have improved so much under his direction. Nathaniel is so patient and always has the right answer when a question is asked. Nathaniel likes putting some humor in with his instruction technique which helps to relax and enjoy the session. Anyone who is looking for a spectacular instructor, Nathaniel is your choice.
It was more than I expected!!!! We hired them for a little surprise anniversary dinner for Mama parents. Everyone was on the dance floor and all smiles. I will be hiring this band for all future events!
Very professional and talented musicians. Have worked with them several times and will continue to do so. Highly recommend 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!!
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.
