Andrew Westphal is a professional DJ and jazz pianist from the Hudson Valley, now in the Finger Lakes NY, offering full music entertainment services for weddings, events and parties. His extensive music library covers a wide range of popular music, dance classics and just about any requests you or your guests might have. More importantly, Andrew's 20 years as a performer have helped him cultivate a distinct musical sensibility, so the right music is seamlessly played at the right time and the wrong music is NOT played--i.e. the Chicken Dance or Macarena etc...!

Andrew's approach is low-key, less mic, more about the music and all about the FUN. Behind the scenes, Andrew is organized and helps direct the flow of events so you can relax knowing that everything will be taken care of. He consults with you while you are planning your event to ensure that the music will reflect your tastes and that all details are considered.

Online Music Database: clients have their own website log-in where they can organize details of their event and make requests whenever they think of them. If desired, guests can also join in the fun with their own request area. And Andrew can also help suggest music and arrange playlists so that the music flows perfectly with your event.

Based in Ithaca, NY, Westphal Music serves Upstate NY including Rochester, Syracuse and the entire Finger Lakes as well as occasional events in the Hudson Valley and beyond.

    We chose Andrew to DJ our wedding because we loved that he offered to play live piano. He was absolutely wonderful! Andrew played the piano for the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner, and then switched to DJing for the remainder of the reception. We relied on his expertise in helping to choose both the piano music and reception music, and are so glad we did. He knew what to play to keep our guests out on the dance floor. We received so many compliments from our guests about how wonderful our DJ was. Everyone thought the live piano was beautiful, and had a blast out on the dance floor during the reception. We highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for an amazing wedding DJ! - Renée & Mark 9/17/17

    Hire Andrew Now!

    Reach out to Andrew before someone scoops him up for your wedding date! Not only does he do a fantastic job as a DJ reading the room and keeping the dance party vibes going all night, but also the value he brings in being able to play live piano makes working with him a no brainer. We gave him some non-traditional wedding ceremony songs we wanted and he played them on his electric piano (which sounds like the real thing!) It made the ceremony extra special to have live music without having to pay for separate live musicians. Our venue also had a Steinway grand piano that he played during dinner. His prices are already great just for DJing, but adding in the live music makes it an incredible deal. Thank you, Andrew, for making our wedding a truly unforgettable night!
