We selected Jan to be the DJ at our 40th high school reunion. He showed up two hours early to set up and had everything ready to go an hour before the party started. He did a great job keeping the right songs coming one after another and the dance floor was packed the entire time. I would highly recommend Jan for any type of party where a DJ is needed. I look forward to working with him again the next time we hold an event.

Apart from being enthusiastic about music and skilled at guitar playing and teaching, Mary is also kind and supportive. I ask lots of questions about guitar playing and music theory. She is patient and is able to answer all of them in a clean and concise manner. She also shares with me information from Seattle Classic Guitar Society on performances and master classes of top guitarists from time to time. I would recommend Mary to every person who wants to learn guitar, especially classical guitar seriously.

Jacob is a virtuoso. He focuses well on letting the student develop their own techniques to achieve desired expertise. Amazing at distilling students’ favorite songs/music into versions that are playable at a range of ability.

    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!

    Pyramid Scheme is a very talented trio of musicians that are able to deliver quality music from any era. They displayed the ability to execute country, rock, R&B with seamless ease. I highly recommend them for your event.

      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.

        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!

        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.

        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!

        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.

        Lindstrom and Company are truly great performers and musicians. They can be the highlighted talent, or perform as house music. They are capable of mastering a wide selection of music that easily makes them art for any occasion. You will never be dissapointed in hearing them perform.

          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!!

          About

          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.

          About

          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!
