About Al Alvarado Music

I have been performing along the Emerald Coast since 1989 and have had the honor of performing for hundreds of weddings. If you're looking to hire a musican for your wedding, I'll make it EASY! You just tell me the mood you'd like set and I'll take it from there. Have specific requests? No problem. I play to professional backing tracks while your guest are arriving. We can personalize what you want played for the arrival of the wedding party, your processional, the ceremony itself, and finally the recessional.

I am now performing live both as a solo act as well as with numerous musicians along Florida's Emerald Coast.

- First Call Studio Artist
- Was an integral member of the group 'Jones & Company', performing from New Orleans to Nashville.
- Won 'Best of the Emerald Coast' for 3 consecutive years
- Won 'Best of Show' Air Force Worldwide Talent Competition
- Voted 'Best Horn Player' Beachcomber Music Awards 2011, 2012, and 2013
- Performed one-on-one with legendary broadway star Ben Vreen
- Recorded 'Part Time Lover', a song which ultimately reached #7 in England's 'Top of the Pops'

    Al Alvarado plays at the restaurant my family own in Destin; Bric a Brac, (in case you would like to see him play the sax before you hire his services), he works out a very good deal for us, so I'm sure he will give a nice and fair price to anyone.
    During the high season (spring/summer), we have live entertainment 7 days a week; a different musician every night, but Al Alvarado is one of the three musicians we keep all year round, he's worth every cent to our business. He's very professional, the selection of songs he plays are exquisite to the ear, his music is very enjoyable and so is his personality. We're a family friendly restaurant and is delightful to see kids dancing at his music. If you choose Al Alvarado to play on your special day, you won't regret it and all your guests will be very pleased with your choice. He's always on time and is a very responsible person, it's with great pleasure I write this review.
    Hope this will help you to make your mind.

    Al is amazing.... he actually performed for us at a post wedding "Jazz Brunch" for all of our family and out of town guests. He was just exactly what we were hoping for. Great music and he is very good at engaging w/the guests. He also worked our event into a very very busy and full day he had scheduled... Would have been easier for him to say "I can't do it that day"... but instead he said..."Let me see if I can make this work for you"! You will love this guy... he is so professional and so good!

    Unfortunately I, as the bride, didn't really get to enjoy Mr. Alvarado's talented sax skills other than when I walked down the aisle but I heard nothing but absolutely great things about this presence and the music he provided. My husband said he was LEGIT and set the mood in every way!!! I knew just from interacting with Mr. Alvarado a.k.a. Saxman ;-) via email that he would be a delight; he addressed my every need and concern and was a pleasure to work with up until and through our wedding day. I hate that I didn't get to enjoy his music like everyone else but I would definitely recommend him for anyone's event!!!

I give Al Alvarado my highest endorsement!
