Hi Joe
It was a pleasure meeting you at the gigs out East last weekend. Our friend Roz was right. They sounded great, just like their CD’s. And our practice at you studio Wed and Thurs nights was great.  We picked up many tips to improve our vocals and music.  The first recording then the second one as you suggested was like night and day. We will be back with our other song selections next week. It should be fun to learn more tips.
Thanks
Deb and Donna

Hi Joe
Your studio was perfect to practice in. Nice Head phone amp, clean clear sound.  It’s better then using the PA with the speakers and amps blasting.

It was a blast recording the CD in capture. And really shocked it turned out the way it did. Still sounded like a live band. But you were right we should have done it the way you suggested for better nixing. It was our fault for insisting.  But you did clear the recording up for us and it sounded much better. Next time we will do as you suggested. And I am sure it will sound like an off the shelf CD or like the other ones of yours we heard.
Thanks

Hi Joey
Thanks for setting up our back up tracks for us.  As always you handled the mixer like a pro. We were able to concentrate more on performing and you took care of the rest. The way you tweaked the two new songs, Something’s Got a Hold On Me went over great.   And Shut Up and Dance as you told us get the people involved. Mark and I had the people up and dancing. Its good to have the audience enjoying the show and participating. And a well mixed age audience.  Don’t forget the September, October and  November gigs. Thanks again, and see you at practice.
Love Ya, Ciao

It was a pleasure to practice in you studio. No barking dogs or people telling you to turn down. You set the volume at a good level and sounded great. Got a lot done and with no interference like with our other practices (at home). Hope to be back to record.
Larry

Thursday 08/11/16  10:15 PM
You have a nice practice studio. Our band enjoyed the time there. Everyone was plugged in to the mixer and headset amp and sounded great with our own levels. We will be back again.

Hi Joe
Thanks again for our 05/07 gig in Old Westbury. Glad you were able to make it. We would never have made it through the night when they wanted us to play an extra 2 hours. You did a great job setting up those last sets for us. You’re a life saver, had us up and ready in no time. And we all did sleep good Sunday.  June is Prom and Jersey month. I will call you with the dates if you can make it. Roz and the girls have gigs expect a call.

It was a long journey from start to finish. But it was worth it. You did a fanatic job during the recording sessions. You got us through the rough times when we wanted to quit. Then you suggested we do that part later or another day. And the CD sounded like it was all done on the same day. Great mixing magic you did.
Thanks again
Peter

Wednesday   04/27/16   06:50 PM

Hi Joe
Our band had a great time recording at your studio. And the finished CD topped it off. We suggest any one who wants a top notch recording to have it done at your studio. Our next recording will be with out a doubt at your studio.
Thank You
Victor

Monday  02/29/16   11:02 PM
Thanks for the great CD of our band you recorded. It really came out way better then we expected it to be first time recording. Your mixing made it tighter. Your studio is super cool to record in. And your Art pro 6 headset amp makes it easier to hear our individual tracks while recording. Hope to be back soon
Mike D

Saturday  02/27/16   04:10 PM
You did another excellent job recording and mixing our second CD. We will be selling them at our upcoming gigs. Our followers loved the demo and asked for more.  Thanks again, we will be in touch. Cheers

Hi Joe
Thanks again and really appreciated the 2 gig referrals. It was a blast; sorry you weren’t able to be there. Fall gigs already been booked keep dates open, three groups again. You may have to bring the big mixer out. We have a few more new songs to record and practice weather permitting. Talk to you this week to book time.

Hi Joe
It was great to finally get to your studio Christmas week to record our bands 10 song CD. It was a lot different then just practicing or playing out. It was a lot of work but the finial outcome was great. Thanks for letting me sit in on the final mastering of the CD. And had it finished before the storm. It sounded great and the guys enjoyed their time there. Hope to be back again.
Many Thanks
Jason

Wednesday 11:00 AM  01/20/16
What can I say, I had to play the CD several times to make sure it was us playing on it. It was cool and we enjoyed the time at your studio. It was more then I expected. Your other customers are truthful in their comments.You ran your studio professionally and yet friendly. A great place to record and I will spread the word.
Have a Blessed Day

The finished CD sounded like it was from a top label company. You did a super job mastering it. Great job, all 8 songs were high quality. Your studio is a must for recording again.
Thanks

EXCELLENT!!  job recording and mixing our first demo. We played it at our practice last night, and all smiles and thumbs up. Your studio was great to record in. And thanks on your advice on setting up our sound system and the Voice Tone Harmonizer Box. After you showed us how to set it up it was like night and day. The sound was perfect, no distortion or off notes at all. Thanks again for your time and info on the equipment. And we will be back in January. Holiday Cheers

Mark and Roz was right, you did a great job on our 11/14/15 gig. You had all 3 of our groups sounding tight on the mixer. And we all had the audience dancing all night. And thanks again for recording our band live. The CD came out great, the guys were stoked. We just booked 2 gigs from it. The guys can’t wait to record at your studio during Christmas week. Many thanks and have a happy holiday from me and the guys.

Dear Mr. Joe
My daughter Juna and I are very pleased at the way her 2 song musical composition turned out. You were a very kind and patient man. At time working with a 16 year young girl can be trying. She can be demanding with her music wants. You were able to record her playing the violin and piano as if played all at one time. I apologize again for her uncalled for outbursts. She was tearfully overjoyed with the CD. So I am relaying her great full thank you. And hope we may use your services again.
Respectful Regards
Lili and Juna

The CD you did for me was fabulous, I couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks for setting up our songs for our next few shows. Last weekend show was amazing. Glad you were able to make it. Would never have sounded that good with out you at the mixer. Hope you can make our fall shows again. Mark and the guys are counting on you. Hopefully do a live recording with the new songs, please. The other band that was out with us will be calling you. Also wants to record. Talk soon.
Love Ya,  Ciao

Hey Joe
The 2 song CD you recorded for me was a power house. The band loved it. They said if I sounded that good, with them on it should turn to a gold CD. We will be practicing the other song. We should be ready to record all of us in the fall. Great Studio. Will call again.
Regards,
Denny

A quick thank you for your work and recording our CD. It came out really better then we ever expected and solid. The studio was comfortable and easygoing. We felt at home. No pressure or attitude like the one we almost recorded at. My friend’s band did end up recording at the other studio XXXXXXXXXXXXX. He was not pleased. He played his CD for us, and then we played ours. He was quite peeved about his and the amount he paid for a 4 song demo. But he was very impressed with our CD.  The sad part is his band sounds good live. I gave him your card. And he said he will call.
Thanks Again

We are glad we took my cousins Juan’s suggestion and visit your studio. After we heard his CD it was a no brainer. He was right you are the Man. You turned our time there in to a rocking polished CD. You were cool and gave us a CD to be proud of. Peace Bro

Fine job with the CD. It was a little hard for me doing all 3 tracks. But it came out sounding great after you mixed it. I will have my friends come down to fill in the other tracks. And then it should really sound like a full band. I will call in September with the time and maybe add an additional song or two, time permitting.
Thanks again
Josh

Wednesday 09:30 PM   08/12/15
Thanks Joe for the mastered copy of our CD. The guys stopped by to pick up their copy and they said awesome. Great job, and they want to go back again to record. It was a great experience. Your vocal tips on using the mic (and your props, smile) did make a big difference on the second take. And the CD is proof. Many thanks and hope to be back soon.

The finished CD was mind blowing. Like night and day for our 2 original songs we first attempted back in Jan. Your suggestions on our songs tightened the sound. As if you knew the songs better then we did. The other cover songs we did came out just great after you mastered it to the CD.  It was a lot of work and hours but it was well worth it. And you worked just as hard getting it to sound perfect. We all thank you for your patience, patience, patience. You always kept your cool, even when we wanted to quit. Great work and we will be returning again.
Thanks Again

Totality awesome mastering job you did on our CD recordings, second to none. The original quick mix you did sounded really good. But man you put our tunes on steroids on the finial mastered CD. Crisp clear and in your face kick a**, even when played on low volume. Even the parts that we wanted to do over again, you said you could fix the parts with out us, and did.  Your recording head phone setup you used was great. We were able to hear our own parts over the other players. We sure could use that for when we practice. Great vibe’s the entire time at your studio.
Thanks again.

Hi Joe
You did an excellent job again recording and mixing our 2nd CD with the Motown and soul songs you suggested last year. We can’t decide which CD is better. Our folks like the Motown CD, all smiles that’s good music. And you were right, good dancing music. I had to burn an extra copy for myself.  It was a great experience again in the studio. And the guys all agree. We have a few gigs lined up thanks to the first CD. And will be playing some of the new songs. Peace, rock and roll and a bit of soul.

Thanks for our finished Demo CD Monday.  You are a man of your word. You took the 4 songs I recorded in January, and added the other 3 members on it 2 weeks ago. And it sounded great. Excellent mixing and quality sound. The guys were speechless when they heard it. We plan to come back again. This weekend we will be working on new songs to record. Thanks for the great work you done.

Hi Joe
Our recording session was an experience last week. First time in a studio brain freeze and nerves, but cleared up. Our time there was easygoing after that. We thank you for your patient while we were trying to do 2 original songs. It does take more then 2 hours to complete songs. But what we did record sounded great.  Just seen your Feb Presidents week special on your web site and will be booking a 4 hour block. Call you this weekend after speaking to the band.
Thanks
Bob

Sunday 08:15 PM   01/11/15
I must say I was a little leery about recording myself singing and playing guitar again. You were the second studio I tried out. But I did want to check out another studio for my band. Yours was a good experience with no pressure, just a quick mix as I requested and a CD.  Not twisting my arm to book more time and mastering it. You explained what could be done at a later time if I wanted too. Including, adding the other members on the songs. I played the 4 song CD for the band last week and they said it was clear and crisp. At practice today they agreed we all should return to finish it as you suggested. So expect a call.
Thank You
Tom

Hi Joe,
What else can I say? You did a great job on the recording and mixing of our 11/7 gig. The CD’s sold fast. We will have a few more songs after the New Years gig. We will give you a call. Keep us up dated on the WinterFest gig. Talk to you soon.

Just have to say thanks again for a great job mixing and recording our 10 song CD and having it ready for our 11/7 gig.  You did another fantastic job with our speaker setup that night. I’m sure that nights live recording you did for us will be top notch. And thanks again for being there. Your new CD marketing idea sounds great. Talk to you soon.

Hi Joseph,
Our Worship Band wants to thank you immensely for your time and effort in the recording and the finishing of our 12 song CD.   The proficiency in the way you were able to record and mix all of our 18 tracks by scheduling us with three or four people at a time to meet our hectic work schedules was appreciated. Pastor Don was happy that we received the CD in more then enough time before or Holiday service and sale.  And also was extremely happy with the mixing of the CD.  And if you have the time, maybe come to one of our weekend services.  Thanks again and hope to return soon.
Sincerely

Hi Joe,
I want to thank you again for being available to mix and record us performing live at our Oct 3 gig. We had one of our best sounding shows. You set our PA system up for max performance.  The 3 CD’s of the show you mixed sounded superb.  Also thank you for showing us and formatting the CD software to make our CD’s look great. We fulfilled all of the CD requests for the people that called you. We will be bringing a good supply for next weeks outing. Thanks again and see you next week to record our 10 new songs. And hope to have that CD ready to hand out also next weekend.
Sincerely

Hi Joe
The 12 song CD of our band you recorded for us came out flawless. The best studio we have been to in the last two years because you know how to talk to and treat you clients. And knew what you were doing. You said “the effort you put in, will show in the quality of the finish product”. Our band believes it’s also the man’s effort at the mixer who makes the finished product what it is. I played our CD for my guitar teacher yesterday and he said you finally found Mr. Magic, he captured the band perfectly. Then asked for your business card. And said, great mix, stay with him when your band records again. With my teachers and our parents “now that’s a CD to be proud of”. I think said it all. The band is forever grateful for your time and effort recording us and the best CD we ever recorded. And we will start learning those Motown songs you suggested. And you will be recording that CD for us also.
Thanks Again

Joe,
The guys and their wife’s were over the house last week to review the CD you recorded for us. And the response from my wife was “Oh My God, Oh My God” with her brother Rocco chirping in, I told you so, see I told you so.  After all 4 songs she said “Bravissimo Bravissimo” and the looks said it all. The guys said great job. And you were right. The ladies liked “The Lady is a Tramp”.

Again thank you for you time and patience recording us. And you did a great mixing job. We are getting ready for a vacation and I will be calling you when we return to set up time again. We have two affairs, one large and one medium size to play at in the fall.  Everyone suggested we hire you for our sound man there, if you are available too. We do want to sound like the CD mix.  We also checked out you songs on line great sounds. The photos were nice also. We may have to borrow your sharp looking ThunderBird for a few photos. And please update us on the Long Beach gig.
Sincerely
Mark Marcus Trio

Hi Joe,
I just had to thank you again for taking the time and record our band. The 10 track CD you finished Wednesday night sounded excellent.  We played it at a party over the weekend and jaws dropped. Ralphies jaw is still on the floor shaking his head.  Everyone loved it and all good praise. They did question if it was us guys playing, but they were just busting our chops. It was very comfortable to work with you. We all felt at ease the entire time. And your advice and humor kept us moving on. Watching you do the final mixing and burning to the CD showed us how much work is put into recording and then the finial product to come out the way it did. And we are very grateful to have been their. We will be highly recommending you to all or friends and bands we meet. You did 100% better then that so called fancy pro studio did for us last year. And we hope to return this fall, that is if you don’t get to busy (-.  Till next time, Peace, Rock and Roll with a bit of Soul
