Thank you so much for putting together the awesome band. The music was phenomenal and I felt blessed that you gifted us with all the wonderful talents, including yourself. Again, a big thanks!
Nathan Goldberg (Gloria Allred)
The band was outstanding. Rick showed up hours before the event to set up and make sure that everything was exactly as it should be. He and the band members are all very talented musicians. They were amazing with our guests- very warm and extremely likeable. I would hire them in a heartbeat.

"America's Greatest Cover Band" (TV Series)
Working with Rick and Vehicle was a sincere pleasure. They are a group of extremely talented musicians and singers! They are professional to the core, showing up early, rehearsing, and were ready to go even before I was ready. Even though I auditioned them for a TV show I could tell they have that same manner of professionalism in every aspect of their business. That is exactly how they treat their band, as a business. Of course, it is fun for them, but clearly they are there to please their customer. I purposely threw them a couple of "curve balls" during their audition and they handled them brilliantly. I am positive they would do the same in any situation. And best of all, they sounded amazing regardless of the genre of music they played.

Thank you for performing at the Unfrozen Music event on Saturday. Vehicle was a fantastic end to the evening! My folks who mostly listen to 'classical' music really enjoyed your performance and energy ... and so did I.
I also appreciate all your help! Your sound expertise and willingness to share your equipment made my life easy! We couldn't have done it without you!
