Andre and his wife, Alina, are THE dynamic duo! We hired Andre for our wedding day and we got a lot more in return! They went above and beyond with their services & exceeded our expectations!Sent on 06/18/2018
We found Andre simply by googling local DJs in town. He was one of the first that popped up & he immediate captured my attention because of the saxophone! Exactly what we were looking for. Live music mixed in with our personal playlist. Andre was the full package for us!
Meeting with the couple was so effortless. It was smooth sailing from the first time we connected. They immediately made us feel confident in the fact that every last detail will be taken care of. We didn’t have to worry about a thing & boy did they come through! Andre went as far as to customize a song for me to walk down the aisle to! Talk about going the extra mile!
It was an outdoor venue with nothing but a little outlet for them to work with but their set up was phenomenal! They thought of everything. They had wireless microphones which made it easy to maneuver for the emcee. The pastor at the ceremony and toasts at the receptions were well heard!
They made sure to thoroughly inspect the area before rehearsal to make sure they had everything necessary to execute on the big day.
They have payment options too which makes it convenient when you’re on a budget!
The day of went seamlessly well. There were no hiccups and Andre’s performance got the crowd wild! Spirits were high, people had an absolute blast! Andre knew how to set the mood for every moment throughout the entire event.
Andre & Alina, you knocked it out of the park! Thank you SO much for being a part of our special day & making it unforgettable! We are forever grateful!
