Steve is a great guy - very professional and courteous. He goes above and beyond to make sure the "guests" are having a good time. He has great resources - having all the music people request. We have used Steve's services multiple times and will continue.
Even though we live far away, whenever you two come to visit all the children are happy at our get together s :)
I first contacted Reed in hopes of finding a guitarist that might be interested in accompanying me while I sang. I’m an adult who was never exposed to vocal or instrumental lessons growing up. Needless-to-say I was beyond green. I was focusing on singing, and it never crossed my mind to even try guitar. Reed’s love of music is contagious though and with his encouragement, we started formal guitar lessons. I warned him I didn’t want to dive into theory, read music, etc. I just wanted to be able to play current songs I could sing to. He tailored his lessons to my goals, but over time I realized he was not only teaching me those songs, he was teaching me the foundation of guitar and building up a chord & (I hate to admit it)- theory- library honestly without me even noticing. He is able to simplify the complex world of music and make it fun. If you’ve seen him play, you know he is an extremely versed guitarist, and despite his elite skill set he was more than patient, understanding and encouraging for a beginner like me. I have also seen him work with advanced guitarist, and he is beyond able to vary the curriculum to suit their needs. I highly recommend taking lessons with Reed no matter what level you’re at. I would have never imagined in less than a year of doing so, I would be hosting my own YouTube channel and writing original music. I have Reed to thank for that. I unfortunately don’t live in the same state as Reed anymore, but I still continue to do skype lessons with him as I want to continue to grow and improve, and well, he's the best! -Jessica Marie
We hired Raynbow & Friends for an open house with approximately 600 people in attendance. They were on time, quick to set up and got right to work. The face painters were great and everyone was very pleased with them all. Great job and Thank you so much for helping us make our company open house a success!
My experience with Yellowmoon Entertainment was excellent! For the price they exceed expectations! The music, DJ, and set up are all excellent! I would definitely recommend them for any event needing music! They kept the dance floor packed all night!
Joel Ramsey appears to be a visionary. He seems to have mastered multiple foreign accents, is extremely proficient in slapstick comedy, and conveys facial emotions extremely well. His work impresses me because I can't help but be entertained by his art. I know that he must be onto something, because when I show his work to others, they are laughing just as I am. What can Joel Ramsey do better? He can make MORE videos for his fans to enjoy!
I hired FaceMuse to paint faces at my toddler daughter's birthday party. I could not have been more pleased. Sarah had all the outdoor equipment to provide a shaded area to work/entertain. Our guests were so pleased with the experience and were able to look at a wide variety of options. Sarah is professional, easy going and very approachable. It was a great experience and I would hire this business again and again.
Lochlan stole the show when I hired him to perform at my friend's birthday party. Even though it was a smaller venue with about 35 people, Lochlan made the most of it and turned our celebration into a great time. He interacted with the audience and made sure that every single person got a balloon hat. I could not believe how entertaining the show turned out to be. Highly recommend Lochlan if you want to take your event to the next level. Thank you Lochlan!
Jodi is efficient and creative in her work. Has a variety of experiences in many different areas.
My daughter takes violin lessons from Jocelyn. Typically she's shy and reserved, but with Jocelyn's love of music, inspiring personality, and excellent teaching style, my daughter is thriving and living every minute of her lessons!!! Thanks Jocelyn for being a wonderful teacher!!
Jay was great! The time he was here he was interactive with the kids and creating ballons for all the guests. We'll definitely be having him at our future parties.
Every entertainer will say something about "how good we are", they have to say that. Our record of local and national clients speaks for itself. I don't toot my own horn, I will personally explain what benefits you get with our company.
Motchy is an phenomenal DJ. He's very easy to work with and entertaining to watch; you can tell DJing is a passion more than a job. Motchy is very willing to play any genre of music that you desire and his prices are reasonable.
I can't say enough about this band! Everyone at the party enjoyed the music and the dance floor was always packed. The band was very accommodating to all of our requests and worked very well with the property owners on sound levels and times. Thanks again to all the band members and the sound guy for an awesome night.....catch you on the FLIP SIDE!!!! - Alyssa
Artist Bio Funny name. Great band! Most groups start with rock and pop and play blues when they run out of material. They start with blues because it's the basis for all-American pop music since early in the last century, then they take great material and do it the way they think it fits for the band. For 22 years, Chainsaw Curtis and the Creepers have been playing a distinctive brand of roadhouse blues, rock 'n' roll, and R&B music all over Wisconsin, northern Illinois, and eastern Iowa. More about Chainsaw Curtis and the Creepers Curt Rodeheaver started playing music on the piano at age nine and picked up the guitar at thirteen. Gigs for high school dances led to his first nightclub work in 1970. He continued to play in bands and in 1981 in Ithaca, New York with band mate Glenn Davis and started a weekly Blue Monday jam session at a night club called the Nines, which is still going today. According to Living Blues magazine, it's one of the longest continuously running jams in the country. In 1989, Curt moved to Southern Wisconsin from upstate New York to open the Silver Moon Blues Oasis in Darien. He got the name Chainsaw from a line in the Huey Lewis song "Cool Is the Rule (But Sometimes Bad is Bad)." The Creepers started as the house band at the Moon backing artists from Chicago. Curtis would occasionally take the band out of the club and do gigs in other area venues. When Curt left the Moon in 1993, he continued to book the band in clubs, at festivals, and parties. There have been many Creepers over the years (more than 35!). The first Creepers album, Too Much Like Work, was released in 1996 and included eight original pieces and three covers. Dave Luhrssen of the Milwaukee Shepherd Express called it one of the best locally produced blues albums. Curt's song "Nine Months of Winter" got to 102 on the Garageband.com over all charts in a field of more than 20,000 songs. The 2000 release Pantloads of Fun included eight original songs by Curt. John Noyd of Maximum Ink magazine called Pantloads a "smokey barbecue reminiscent of ZZ Top and Los Lobos." Chainsaw Curtis is currently working on material for his third album - (Tragedy's Easy) Comedy's Hard. The Creepers have more than a hundred years of experience on stage. There is video of the band on our Reverbnation page. It's blues! It's electric folk! It's American music! Crank it up.
