Simply put - tyler is amazing
Tyler is the man. Talent, Personality, and Professionalism beyond imagine. My man didn’t only play a list of some 40 English songs, no, he learned 3 separate arabic songs and played them FLAWLESSLY. As if he was a native. The sax can be described as an extension of tyler and he knows it soo well as if its part of his body. He stayed longer than he should’ve, probably cuz he enjoyed our company 😂 and cuz he cares about the overall feel of the event. Our wedding was elevated from classy to magnificent because of his touch. So many people thought that the sax was just an elegant element to the overall feel. Amazing Tyler.Sent on 09/22/2020

Are you debating whether or not to have a Saxophone player (Tyler) play at your wedding or event?! Wellllll, let me make it easy for you...DO IT!!! WOW! I had the privilege of seeing Tyler in action at one of my best friends wedding and as soon as I heard him play I KNEW I had to have him play at my wedding! And sure enough, 1 year later, my wedding rolls around and I reach out to Tyler. He is the kindest most professional most talented musician you’ll ever meet. He made our entertainment at our wedding! You can tell he has been working his magic for a very long time, his dedication to his skill is certainly obvious. And let me add, one thing I truly appreciate and am so grateful for is Tyler’s flexibility. Due to COVID, we had to postpone our wedding twice and not once did Tyler ever question or give me a hard time about it. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much Tyler, you are truly amazing at your skill and you truly are an amazing person too!Sent on 09/05/2020
