"My husband and I wanted to hire a pianist for our holiday party where ninety guests were invited. We were referred to Live Music Consulting (LMC) by our dentist (personal friend) who knows the owner, Dan Wions. I immediately contacted Dan via e-mail and cell phone but, unfortunately, he was on tour out of the country. Within a day the correspondence began.

He was able to find out what our needs were (both musical and budgetary) and he contacted a very qualified woman through the LMC network and connected us. Dan was such a pleasure to work with, returning e-mails promptly and always answering any questions promptly and politely. Making me feel comfortable that I would definitely have a qualified pianist for our party was such a relief and one less worry for such a large gathering. We highly recommend using LMC and will definitely do business as well as refer in the future.

P.S. Even after our pianist left our guests actually came up to us asking where the live music had gone!"

A Note From the Owner

Hello, my name is Dan Wions. I began Live Music Consulting in 2005. Having received my degree from the largest music school in the United States, Indiana University, I have working relationships with musicians in every state in the country, and worldwide. As a cocktail Pianist and French Hornist, my resources and connections branch across many different genres and styles of music.

As a Pianist for Nordstrom from 1996 to 2008, I saw first hand how important personalized service can be, whether shopping in a retail store or searching for the right musician. Many websites, display broad lists of hundreds of musicians in your area. These musicians often put together marketing packages that highlight their strengths while hiding their weaknesses. If you are not a trained musician, it can be very difficult to choose from such a list, even when sound samples are available. Other websites will feature one or two specific groups or individual musicians. With these websites, you are limited to the services offered by those musicians alone.

Through Live Music Consulting, you will have access to all the musicians in our worldwide network. This network is compiled of many talented musicians, represents a variety of genres, removes geographic boundaries, and is growing every day through the efforts of our Consultants. After your free consultation with one of our Consultants, we select musicians off the list based on their strengths and your specifications. If no one on our list is adequate for your needs, we find someone who is.
