" I have been fortunate enough to know Russell since 2009. He first caught my attention when  a group of friends and myself were at a local wine bar planning an event.  We were in need of musical talent and just couldn’t help but notice and hear the obvious…he was WONDERFUL!
We approached him on a break to see if in fact he was available in a few months to perform and not only was he a huge hit, he has been gracious enough to play each year.  In fact he has become a staple at our annual event and has been requested for years!

Working with Russell on my non-profit annual fundraiser event I have experienced his extreme professionalism, commitment level, punctuality and of course great talent. He has literally stopped people in their tracks with his voice and just this past year, moved my own mother to tears while singing! It’s just an added bonus that he has such a huge heart and loves to perform for this cause.
We are so thrilled, grateful and honored to have Russell’s talent.  If you are lucky enough to reserve him, you will surely be moved to say the least."

Let's Party!

"....Russell Mayes, my favorite Musician in Austin....."

We have had Tone play at our venue multiple times, and they always impress.  It doesn’t matter if we book a duo, trio, or full band they go over and beyond each time. Russell is great at communicating throughout the entire process, and will quickly answer any questions, or address any concerns you may have.  We have had them play both indoors and outdoors, and they sound amazing either way. Tone does an awesome job at engaging with the crowd, and ensuring that everyone has a great time at whatever event your hosting. We have been using them for years, and will continue to do so. They do a wonderful job with all genres, you will be blown away at their unique abilities and great sound. Book Tone for your next event, and you will be glad that you did!

"When It comes to live music in Austin you’ve got posses the passion and love for what you are doing. As a business owner with live music you need a professional that posses the passion and love for what they are doing. Russell Mayes encompasses all these things. He can warm up a crowd, get them in the groove and have them wanting more when the set is done. It has been one of my great pleasures to not only do business with the man but had the opportunity to listen to the musician."

"Thank you so much for making our reception the party of the century! Your band was fabulous, and as you saw all our family and friends were cutting a rug all night long! Everyone in your band is so talented, and we loved your choices of music. I don’t think the evening could have been more successful. I will definitely recommend you guys to all my friends who are getting married. Thanks again."
