Great Musician for Events
I hired Dean to play a specific piece on the saxophone for my surprise engagement in Central Park. He was very professional and responded to my wishes to keep the surprise secret - he blended in with the rest of the crowd there. He was also very flexible with payment and overall very responsive. Highly recommend.Sent on 12/20/2019
