Rave Reviews

I love seeing Dylan perform around Santa Rosa! He puts on an amazing show and never fails to please the crowd. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great music teacher or looking for someone to perform at a venue.

The best jazz bassist you'll find, the Dylan Juhan Jazz Group is always amazing. He mixes it up with different instruments for every show, it never gets boring. Would also recommend as a music teacher, super patient and great with kids.

- Lucy M.

Absolutely amazing to work with, both as a musician and a luthier. Dylan did a full setup and repair job on my 100+ year old violin, I couldn't be happier. It's a family heirloom with a lot of sentimental value, and I wouldn't trust anyone else. He's also an exceptional band leader and bass player, shows are always a great time! Do you let self a favor and go watch him play, 1000% worth going out.

As a musician, he's the only bassist I trust. Seriously talented, always great to play with, this guy is going places. His knowledge of jazz and rock music is way beyond the usual. And he's reliable which goes a long way in the music business.

- Brian B.

Dylan is an amazingly talented performer, and is extremely reliable. He's always willing to take on a job, and enjoys what he does. He's professional, yet he still possesses a very relaxed and friendly personality when interacting one-on-one; this makes him enjoyable to work with, and creates a very comfortable atmosphere. He's a wonderful sight reader, and has a finely tuned ear which he utilizes to follow along with any music. He's committed to his work, and has an incredible sound on bass.

- Sean L.

He has put many, many hours into improving his craft as a luthier. Dylan built his own standup bass, and has worked on/repaired countless string instruments under the guidance of experienced professionals over the years. He has become an impressive luthier, but he is an especially patient and kind teacher. He has a great knack for making his students smile and laugh, while pushing them to want to succeed and grow as musicians.  He cares for his students, and shows a deep love for music. Dylan is an amazing performer, teacher, and luthier. His love for bass and music is very apparent.
