Why work with Magnetic Talent? I pre-screen entertainment and then speak with you to tailor recommendations based on your specific preferences and needs.

From the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay to the Four Seasons San Francisco, from The Fillmore to the Eldorado Reno Hotel-Casino, from country clubs to Napa Valley wineries, to Infineon Raceway Sonoma to your backyard, I have provided entertainment for all sizes and kinds of weddings, company parties, and public events.

I am happy to mail you materials, as well as make arrangements for you to see performers in person. What sets Magnetic Talent apart is my wide selection, paired with my competitive pricing -- since I work with these performers all year long, I book them at a discount and pass the savings along to you.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you find just the right entertainment!

"Eric and I loved All Star Jukebox. They did a wonderful job. And just so you know our guest don't stop talking about them. If they ever play in the Bay area where we can listen to them please let us know. Thanks again for everything. It was exceptional."

"The Spazmatics were awesome. They really made our night. You can't imagine the number of compliments we received regarding their performance. You've never seen such a packed dance floor from beginning to end. They were professional and interactive, not to mention extremely talented. They were everything we wanted and more. Thank you very much."

"Thank you all of your assistance in booking such great musicians for Michelle and Pat's wedding. I was also really grateful to have you on hand last weekend to facilitate the details with the band (James Gang) (who were really good!!!). We will definitely keep you in mind for future events next season."

"My name is Amy and I had the pleasure of seeing the Spazmatics at Lauren and Adam's wedding last weekend. They were amazing and I had more fun dancing than I've had in a long time. Seriously, my calves were killing me for days afterwards because I was bouncing up and down so much."

- Amy R / wedding guest

"The whole event was great. The girl band lineup (Iron Maidens) was great... I think all the ladies had a blast opening for KISS.

The client was thrilled, as was the producer... everyone.... So, thank you, thank you... I hope to work with you again."

- Laura F / professional event producer

"You've been so helpful and we really appreciate it -- we were going blind from the East Coast so it's nice to meet someone who knows the biz out there and is willing to help. Look forward to meeting you in person and working w/ you on this."

- Nancy L / corporate client

"All of my guests were raving about them (Afrodisiacs).

You were awesome Scott..seriously. Always got back to me right away, and generally just made my life easier. It was a PLEASURE to work with you. I'm just bummed that I didn't catch you until the end of the night to thank you!

All in all, it was the best wedding I've ever been to as well."

- Sharon L / wedding client

"They (Groovus) brought the house down. Dave & Willie did a great job keeping the crowd going. From the moment I started working with Dave to get all of the logistics together to the night of... he has been absolutely professional and accommodating. The entire band looked really sharp for the evening and I had a chance to meet them all individually. Thanks so much Scott!"

- Florence T / wedding client

"The band (Rodeo Clowns) were awesome! Everyone kept asking me when we could bring them back!"

- Jimi R / printing press company

"Aaron (MC) was very outgoing, great with the kids... he and his DJs were wonderful and they were very easy to work with. Yes I would highly enjoy working with both of these companies again."

- Ilona / professional event planner

Groovus was AMAZING!! ...they totally rocked the place. Everyone, EVERYONE was like, that was awesome. I LOVED the singers, they were so talented. They sang 'American Boy'...and sounded better than the original singers. They made that night so amazing. THANK YOU!! It was fully, just incredible. They were more than I could ask for.

Thanks again Scott!!!

- Marisa D / wedding client

"As for this past weekend, everyone LOVED them (Spazmatics)! Unfortunately I did not get to stand around and watch too much of their performance but what I did see and hear was fantastic!

Everyone I spoke to, fans and staff alike, said they were the perfect blend of crazy/funny for the kids but they played music that the adults could relate to and enjoy at the same time. They were laid back and every time I went over to check on them they were easy to get along with and very understanding that we had a major event going on and that we would try to be as attentive as possible.

I would hire them again in a second, some folks in the office believe they should be the official band!"

- RP / race track senior marketing manager

Scott, I really have to say that I was impressed with everything you handled and it was very much a relief to know you were going to be there. I know you didn't get much of a break or anything like that but I wanted you to know that the amount of respect I have for you went up several notches on New Years Eve.

- R C / sound company owner

Honey Circuit is the best. I could not even imagine getting another band on my wedding. They are very friendly and down to earth... I would hire them over and over again :).

- Jane L / wedding client

Thank you Scott for all your help.  Soul Purpose was great!!  We couldn't have asked for a better group.  We look forward to attending a show in the future.  They were extremely friendly and sounded wonderful!!  Thanks again.

- Kristen N / wedding client

I just sent Christina over an email giving her and the band a big thank you for everything! It did go really well.... I'm so happy we hired them, they were even better than I remembered seeing them at Boswell's so long ago.
