Professional Wedding DJ & Pianist

Music Matters

“The music was awesome! We have never danced so hard and long in our lives.
We couldn’t have pulled off such an awesome reception and ceremony without you.” ~Eric & Riana

“We still have people calling to tell us it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended. None of this would have been possible if it weren’t for Andrew” ~Bryan & Rachel
