The J. O. Trio was an ideal group to work with. Justin was responsive, accommodating, and easy to contact by phone and email. Their performance was perfect for our event- loud so everyone could hear the music, but guests were able to talk. They also brought all equipment and only required an outlet! Professionally dressed. I highly recommend! A great price for value. More...
Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding, and being so flexible and easy to work with. You all made it such a memorable night. From the Ceremony pianist to the band packing the dance floor all night, You guys were awesome! Too bad the place wouldn't let you guys keep going, we would have had you there all night. More...
My sons have both taken drum lessons from Justin Oliver for several years. He is a personable and effective teacher, and I would recommend him to anyone for drum lessons.
I have been taking lessons with Justin for almost a year now, and I am SO glad to have found him! Learning the drums has been a lifelong dream, and when I finally decided it was time, I was super worried that no one would want to take on an adult learner with no musical background or ability, and that I would be unteachable. Justin has been amazing - I am constantly astounded at his patience and humour, and his ability to get concepts across in a way that makes sense to my non-musical brain, and is fun! I have come SO much farther in the past year than I ever expected, and that's entirely due to Justin's great teaching. More...
My son has been taking drum lessons here for 3+ years and he LOVES it. He’s learned so much about drum technique, musical theory and has explored different genres of music. Also, he’s now a fantastic drummer. I’ve referred several friends who are now also students here. More...
Justin is a great and very patient teacher!
We had Vibrant perform at our wedding this past week and couldn't have been more happy. They were SO easy to work with. It was such a breeze to plan with Justin, he was fantastic to work with. The singers are phenomenal and the whole night was just fantastic. Thank you so much. More...
We had Vibrant perform for our yearly fund raiser recently. They were fantastic, so versatile. We were hoping to find a group that could cover a wide range of music and mood settings. They had a wonderful pianist for cocktail, then small group for light music as a background for dinner. It was beautiful and didn't interfere with the mingling or conversations. Later they shifted to the full band and blew the roof off the place. The dance floor was packed all night. We will definitely have them back next year for sure! More...
I know this is a wedding site but I had to leave a review about them anyway. We had Vibrant perform for our Alumni Casino Night here at Northeastern University. We could not have been happier. They are excellent performers, and true professionals. The planning was easy. Justin was very easy to get a hold of, and great to work with. More...
Justin and the entire Vibrant band were outstanding! Their energy level drew people to the dance floor who I never expected to be dancing. Our guests, and even our professional photographers, videographers, and restaurant staff were asking "what band is this? they're amazing!" They definitely have a new set of groupies.
The planning process leading up to the day was seamless. Justin was very flexible with our last minute changes moments before our introductions the day of, which really speaks to his ability to handle situations.
So glad I found this band online via other online reviews. Hope this helps others make a confident choice in Justin and the Vibrant band. Out of all the wedding planning decisions, this is an easy one to make! More...
Vibrant/Justin was so great to work with. Very responsive with planning beforehand, and everybody at our wedding had a blast! Top notch quality - would 100% recommend. More...
We had Vibrant for our wedding this past fall. I usually don't bother with reviews, but this group was fantastic!!!! I wish I could post a video of their performance of "You and Me" by Dave Matthews Band. We requested it as a final song and they absolutely NAILED it! Everyone is an incredible performer, especially the male vocalist. Our guests couldn't stop raving about them from the moment they started playing at dinner. They started with light arrangements of songs that weren't too loud and made for perfect background to our dinner conversations and mingling. Later, they kicked it up to get they dance floor going. Awesome band and we had an awesome time. Everything was very organized and Justin was very easy to work with. Which took a lot of pressure off of us. I would definitely recommend this group to anyone looking for a great band with no hassles! More...
Could not have been happier with Vibrant for our wedding. It was out on Nantucket so required some logistical coordination, not the easiest. Justin and crew were excellent, pulling off an amazing day for us. Our guests raved about the band and we absolutely loved them, especially the male vocalist. They even were able to do a special request song live for our first dance. Would highly recommend to anyone! More...
My wife and I just got married, and 1 thing that everyone continued to talk about was our band. Vibrant did a great job of getting our guests in the dance floor, and keeping them there. They did a great job from the ceremony up until the send off. We couldn't be more happy. More...
Vibrant is fantastic! I wish all our vendors were this easy to work with. Justin made it very simple to make choices for our entertainment. He was very responsive, often getting back to me the same day. It was super easy to select music for our ceremony, special dances and the band performed the songs we requested perfectly. He was very attentive and offered good suggestions for each part of our wedding.
On top of that, they had to travel out to Nantucket for our wedding. Justin was very helpful in walking us through that whole procedure and made it less daunting. It was so nice to have that taken care of and not have to worry about it. We had a fabulous pianist for our ceremony, jazz trio for cocktail hour, and the full band for our reception. The band was great, everyone was dancing and having a great time. People are still raving about how much fun they had.
If you want a great party, done right, with no headaches - call Justin and get Vibrant! More...
You NEED to have Vibrant at your wedding, period. Justin and the band are so accommodating, friendly, professional, and easy to work with; they were by FAR the best vendor we worked with.
Vibrant provided our ceremony and cocktail hour music, MCing, and wedding band/reception music. The ceremony and cocktail hour music were the perfect mood setters; classy, just the right volume, and romantic. During dinner, they played as a jazz trio, which everyone really enjoyed and found to be a great touch compared to the usual Frank Sinatra piped over speakers. The MCing by Justin was perfect- every name (some of them truly unique) was pronounced perfectly, and he sounded truly excited to be participating.
The best part was by far the band during the reception's dancing; we had a smaller (90 guest) wedding with a number of attendees I didn't remotely expect to dance- I was wrong! Seeing so many faces on the dance floor throughout the night was great. The variety of music was perfect; we gave Vibrant limited direction in terms of what to play, and they did an excellent job reading the crowd and picking songs accordingly. Their two vocalists are amazing in terms of range and style, and so many guests told us they really loved having a quality live band to set the party atmosphere.
In terms of planning, Justin is perfect. Any question, change, request for a quick call, etc was answered almost immediately and with a sense that Justin really enjoys making events great. I never felt like I was inconveniencing him or that he was simply "doing his job." The planning worksheet he provided was incredibly useful, and I appreciated going through it, item-by-item, with Justin before the wedding.
In short, Vibrant is amazing. If you're looking for a band with a huge range of talent - romantic ceremony piano, jazz, straight up party band, and a project manager to tie it all together- Vibrant's the only choice. Thank you! More...
We had a great time with Vibrant. We had some fairly traditional Jewish aspects to our wedding that they really did a great job incorporating. They learned a lot of traditional songs and did a great job performing them along with their usual songs. Justin was very easy to work with and brought up a lot of useful points to us during the planning stage. Things we hadn't really thought about. It made the night flow a lot smoother, I think. More...
Thanks so much for everything! OMG Purple Rain was AMAZING!!!! thank you for adding that in for us. It really made our night.
Vibrant was fantastic to work with. Thank you so much for all that you did...especially with all the last minute changes. You guys are the best!
Vibrant was very easy to work with and helped us out with a number of logistical issues - our wedding was on a cruise ship. I'm sure it wasn't the easiest in the world, but they made it seem that way. Great music, great people. We had a great time. More...
Thank You so much for all your help. You all were fantastic and made the day so enjoyable. Thanks for accommodating all the different locations we were using. You really went out of your way to make everything work. More...
Justin was very responsive and easy to work with. Everyone was raving about you guys. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much, you guys were fantastic! It was super easy working with you all. Thanks for accommodating a cruise ship wedding, must have been hard to work through all the little details, but you made it look like a snap. Thanks again guys!
Hey Justin and crew! Thank you so much for making our wedding day a party we'll never forget! We are so glad our guests got to dance the night away thanks to y'all.
Thank you so much!
You guys were great and our guests shared so many compliments. From including all the Brazilian music we asked for during the dinner set to the top 40 dance sets, everything was too notch.
Having Michaela up and singing with the band was adorable and I am pretty sure Katie has a new BFF. More...
Amazing band! Thank you so much! I'm sitting at the airport waiting for our flight to our honeymoon and had to write in about Vibrant's performance. Everybody had a blast last night - Jack and Katie got everybody going! Fabulous! More...
I had to write in about just how incredible my experience with this band was. It was a very difficult task selecting a band and Justin was extremely understanding and helpful. I would hire them again and again. We plan to go and see them again this fall when they're playing out. Thank you so much! More...
Thank you so much! We had an absolute blast. Justin was easy to work with and very quick to respond. He really put together the perfect night of music for us. And they kept the dance floor moving all night, even when the guests wanted more music at the end of the night. They were very accommodating and rocked the night! More...
Thank you guys and gal so much! You rocked...and on real short notice too! You saved us big TIME! We won't forget it! wish we had found you guys first.
Thanks for making our celebration a very special day. You all went out of your way to make it an experience we'll never forget. Thank you so much!
Thank You so much for playing at our event! We had over 700 people there and everyone was raving about you guys! We will definitely be in contact about future events. Jack was a blast out on the dance floor! Thank you so much! Highly recommended! More...
Justin and company were profession, responsive, and excellent musicians to boot. Highly recommended.
I had been playing drums for 15 years without a single lesson before I decided to call Justin. I progressed more in the few months he has taught me than I could have in a year without him. I made quantum leaps in progress from week to week: my speed, technique and musicality all improved noticeably with each lesson.One of the things that makes Justin such a good teacher is his versatility. He is willing to sit down and teach you a Metallica song as readily as he would a jazz standard. The exercises he provided me worked wonders on my independence and phrasing, two aspects of drumming with which I struggled immensely before I took him on as a teacher. Whether you are a raw beginner or a veteran, I would recommend Justin to anyone who is looking to improve their playing. The guidance and structure he will bring to your playing is invaluable, and he really underscores the importance of playing musically, not technically--a very underrated aspect to drumming in today's technically dominated drumming landscape. More...
Thank you so much for a great performance! Everyone had a blast and can't stop talking about you guys. We couldn't be happier.
Thank you for putting on such a great memorable night! We really appreciate all the work you put in to make it special for the both of us.
Very Responsive and helpful! We had a blast and really appreciate the time they put into our wedding. Top notch performance all around dinner through dancing. Didnt want the night to end!
Thank you so much for everything you did for us. You made it such a great night and accommodated all our quirky requests!
Vibrant was fantastic! Thank you for everything. It was very easy to get in touch with Justin. He listened and really made us feel comfortable that all our requests for the evening were taken care of. It saved us a bunch of time to be able to have our ceremony music, cocktail hour, and reception all in one. You guys brought the energy and really lit up the party, everyone can't stop raving about you! Thanks again. More...
