My Freshman daughter decided to audition for a singing competition(15 minutes before the audition started). To her surprise a few days later she received an e-mail stating that she won and would have to chose 2 songs to be sung in front of over a thousand at her high school X-facor show. She was panicked and stressed about it for 2 weeks, until we both decided she needed some help to embrace this and figure out what songs, how to act on stage, and how to get over her fear of singing in front of people. We went to see William Powers, and strangely enough he said in the short amount of time we have to work together (10 days until showtime) he would mostly work on her stage presence. To our surprise, he showed her exactly what to do from walking on the stage, what to look at, how to hold your head, what to think about, etc. After one session, she felt like a million bucks. He increased her confidence and helped her to understand that her voice is beautiful and now you go out there and sing your heart out. We saw William a few more times and she would sing to him and her awkwardness in knowing what to do with her body, arms, head, etc, was gone. She was ready! William actually came to the show and (not surprising to him) she won!!! Sophie KNOWS it was all because of William helping her with all of those nonverbal things that are so important for confidence. She went from being fearful in singing in front of 3 people, to singing in front of over a thousand! No one would have ever have known that she had never sang on stage and was scared to death on stage, but she used every tactic that William taught her and she was simply amazing.
Jon provided the music for the cocktail hour of our wedding on Sunday, September 18, 2016. We must start out by saying that, because the entire wedding was one big whirlwind, we did not have the pleasure of being able to hear a majority of Jon’s performance. However, we did hear through word of mouth that the guests really enjoyed the music that Jon provided. We communicated exclusively through e-mail. He was very kind and patient with us as we tried to figure out what types of music we wanted to play. Jon was able to send us a list of songs that he was well-versed in and that accommodated the genres we ultimately decided on (latin, jazz, bossa nova, R&B). This made our lives easier as it helped us to focus and eventually narrow our choices down to a small selection of songs. We finally got a chance to meet face to face at the wedding venue. He was very sweet and very formal (and he speaks Spanish too!). We did have a bit of confusion regarding whether or not Jon would use his own personal keyboard or the piano provided by the wedding venue but thankfully everything worked out in the end. Jon was VERY reasonably priced; however, he does not provide a contract (but because Jon is such a professional, this was not an issue at all). We would absolutely recommend Jon. And like we had mentioned to him at the venue, hopefully we have another opportunity to hire him so that we can listen to and enjoy his musical talents in its entirety. Thanks again Jon!
Nick and his mate, Sam showed up on time....ready to work and continued to play three sets during a three hour period. This is my first time hiring a band for my personal party and I could not have worked with a better pair. I will definitely use him again. Well worth the money. Nice guys and open to my inexperienced suggestions. Lol! And I haven't even mention the quality of their music (jazz) was outstanding. They were the hit and highlight of the party.
Guy has provided excellent recording services for our band, Branches Band. We have recorded ten albums with Guy so far and look forward to more in the future!
The EcoLimes are great musicians. They have a fun sound with lots of interesting mash-ups of popular songs. They were easy to book, showed up on time and took care of their own set-up and tear-down. They took longer breaks than agreed upon.
Tom was perfect for our professional networking cocktail party. Tom was prompt and played straight through the two hours. His guitar playing is excellent and his music is unique. Definitely will hire Tom again.
I have always regretted giving up playing guitar when I was a teenager. When my teenage son started playing bass in his schools jazz band I was motivated to see if I could play again. I struggling for months attempting to use the internet and learn on my own before meeting Ken Fought while he was playing at a friends wedding. I was so impressed with his artistry with the guitar that I scheduled lessons for both my son and I. Ken has helped rekindle my passion for music and continues to work with me in improving my skill and confidence in playing my guitar.
I hired Michael to play for my daughters engagement party. He was outstanding! He also prepared ahead of time to make sure he played songs we wanted to here. I will definitely hire him again.
Paul Tadder is a compassionate and knowledgeable teacher in the way that he connects with the individual as much as the music in lessons that feel as though they are tailored to the student. Though he is well versed in many styles of playing and many genres of music he is able to meet a person at the level they are at to meet their goals musically and in technique with ample support and encouragement. Highly recommended for the beginner all the way to the seasoned professional.
Vicki was wonderful. We hired her for our ceremony Music and loved it. Thanks Vicki. If you want someone who knows what they are doing, Hire Vicki. :)
Pete and I regularly performed, wrote music and recorded albums together in Shenzhen, China from 20012-2014. I've traveled the world and have performed/collaborated w musicians from all walks of life. Without a doubt, Pete is one of the best. His unique melodic & harmonic guitar colorings are essential in what set him apart from other composers. Pete knows how to listen to each song and write to meet the needs of that song. Pete's written well over 3 albums worth of music and has produce a few of his own music videos. Pete is also a seasoned music teacher, having 3-5 years of classroom teaching of guitar, ukulele in China as well as private lessons in the US over the last decade. And then there's performing: Pete's performed in all manner of venues, all types of bands and with eclectic and unique musicians. Theres very little he hasn't experienced. Whether you want to develop your guitar chops, learn how to song write, pro tips and pointers on performance - Trust me, Pete Kruse is your mentor. I'm his peer and I have learned countless skills from him. He gets my full recommendation.
My first lesson with Albert led me to believe that playing the piano is something I would like to pursue. He made it fun and taught me the key names in the matter of minutes. Thank you for showing me that playing the piano is just as enjoyable as listening to it.
It was a joy to work with Kathryn. She responded immediately, and made arrangements to bring along her guitarist, to accommodate a last minute holiday party. Everyone loved the music which ranged from holiday classics, some old MoTown and 60s/70s favorites! I would definitely hire Kathryn again!
I enthusiastically support the recommendation of Nicole Auriemma for employment as an entertainer (guitarist and vocalist) in the Chicago area. I have known Nicole Auriemma for the past year and have employed her numerous times to provide musical entertainment during our summer villa events. Nicole always showed up on time and entertained our guests on a very professional level. Nicole is a pleasure to work with and always brings a smile and positive attitude whenever she plays guitar. It is very apparent that she enjoys performing for audiences in any type of environment." Sincere and best regards, Steven T. Samson
Working with Artist Collective has been great! I appreciate the quality and value they bring to the table. Artist Collective has created a fantastic lineup of musicians to meet our needs.
