The Alexander Ruwe Band – Our Favorite Vendor
The cost of Alexander Ruwe band was perfectly in line with what we were expecting to pay, and the quality was top notch. His song book range was impressive, and the band was willing to learn some songs by our request. Alex custom blended three different songs into one for our first dance track which was absolutely perfect. He made three different edits to ensure it transitioned seamlessly, and took all of our feedback to heart. Our dance floor was packed the entire time, and everyone complimented our incredible live band. The emcee-ing was perfect (not too obnoxious, which is a complaint I have regarding most weddings we attend). The mix of live music + pre-recorded tunes was just right, as well a nice balance of fast dance tracks and crowd-pleasing slow dance songs. The groom's uncle surprised everyone with a guitar solo, which got the dance floor started, and Alex + his band joined right in as if it were planned. My husband and I are particular about what music we like, and Alex really understood our vibe from the playlists we created for him and the worksheet we filled out. Not only was our experience with Alex seamless, but the professionalism displayed was the best of all our wedding day vendors. The whole experience was high quality, just like Alexander and his band. Working with Alex was a true joy, and I hope to use his services again!

Alex is the best!
Alex was absolutely amazing! We had to change our venue twice because of Covid and Alex worked with us through the whole process! In the end, we had a backyard wedding that was livestreamed and everyone there physically and virtually commented on how much they loved Alex! The acoustic music during our ceremony helped give it a super personal touch! Then, later in the evening when it started raining, Alex let us move him under a 10 X 20 tent and we kept the after party going for another 2 hours in the rain! We could not have asked for a better DJ! Alex truly cared about us and making our day the best day it could be! We 1000% plan on using Alex for any and all music needs in the future and he will be someone that we recommend to anyone who is looking for a DJ! Thanks so much Alex!!!Sent on 10/05/2020
Alexander Ruwe Music's reply:What a lovely and hilaaaaaaaaaaaarious evening we shared together, team! Watching all of you dive into buckets of ice cold water while we danced and partied in the rain together is something I'll never forget. Thank you so much for your kind words. Can't wait to see you both again soon!

Where do I even begin? I will just cut to the chase... if you want an acoustic guitarist with an amazing voice and fun personality, YOU NEED TO HIRE ALEX FOR YOUR WEDDING!! Friends and family were blown away by how great he was. My family are huge music nerds and I asked him to learn at least 15 sounds for our wedding specifically. He did, and they were all perfect. He even created a rendition of an electronic dance music song that is my husband and I’s favorite song- and somehow turned it into a super special romantic version. Same with one of my favorite Kanye West songs- he somehow turned it into a super cool version. He provided microphones and a clip microphone for my officiant, a huge speaker, and came early and set up. He also stayed about 30 mins later than what we hired him for. Lastly- he is one of the most friendly and warm people we’ve ever met. So kind and excited about our big day. I could keep going on and on about Alex... but to sum it up: just hire him. You won’t be sorry and he will make your special day 10xs more special. Needless to say, we are planning on hiring him for any future large family events. THANK YOU ALEX!Sent on 10/13/2020
