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 9/17/17Sent on 12/11/2017

One of the best choicest we could have made!
If you're considering Andrew as your DJ, the best advice I could give you is to stop reading this right now and HIRE HIM immediately. We heard about Andrew because he worked as the DJ at two weddings that our friend had attended. Not only did she rave about the music, she said that he was incredibly easy to work with.Sent on 05/02/2019
Andrew is a kind, organized, and incredible DJ who knows just how to tailor the music to your guests to get them all out on the dance floor. His online planning system made it easy to select our must play list, and his scheduling feature allowed us to add in special announcements or moments like toasts.
Also, with Andrew, you get both a DJ and an amazing pianist. We originally planned to have him play piano at the ceremony and cocktail hour and then switch to DJing the reception. When it rained and he couldn't play piano outside, he was still amazingly poised and seamlessly switched to recorded music. More than once during the day, Andrew literally sprinted to retrieve a mic and ensure that everything went off without a hitch.
During the planning process, Andrew demonstrated the extremely valuable and rare skill of being able to deliver expert advice in a way that was not only helpful but also accessible. With his help, we were able to craft a reception timeline that went forward flawlessly.
One of the main things our guests commented on at our wedding, was just how out of this world our DJ was. He managed to get people of all different generations and backgrounds out on the dance floor and knew just how to time the rhythm of the night.
I would recommend Andrew to absolutely anyone and would 100% hire him if we ever need a DJ in the future. Thank you Andrew for providing a perfect soundtrack for our wedding day!

Andrew was wonderful. He helped me with everything from the schedule of the night, to song choices, to our sparkler exit. He listened to what I wanted and also offered his professional opinion to make sure our wedding met all of our expectations.Sent on 12/09/2018
