    Excellent DJ/Musician!

    Tyler did an amazing job at our wedding! Tyler was a great communicator and he went above and beyond to reassure us that our wedding day would be perfect. Tyler is the perfect musician for your wedding or special event as he is the perfect blend of DJ and live musician. Everyone raved about the live saxophone at our wedding. It was the perfect addition to our special day. Tyler was also a great emcee. He kept the party going and our guests loved his friendly personality. I would highly recommend hiring Tyler for your wedding or private event!

    Amazing! Absolutely the best DJ/emcee/and musical talent


    Tyler rocks!!! One word to describe Tyler: INCREDIBLE! From our very first conversation Tyler was a pleasure to work with. He made the whole process so easy for us, and helped us to navigate things and timing that we had not even thought about, which made everything stress free. His musical talent is amazing, from elegant piano for our ceremony, to jaw dropping saxophone and rocking our dance party with his DJ set! Tyler's performance throughout the night blew our guests away. So many compliments were made about Tyler. I will say we had one little issue arise between the venue changing times on us, and it was going to be difficult for Tyler to set up everything in time. But Tyler took our hiccup and rolled with it and made the best of a tough situation. Professionalism, courtesy, and mind blowing talent are some great ways to describe our experience, which truly made our day special! Thank you Tyler!
