Testimonials and Reviews

These are some reviews, testimonials and thank-you notes for Finger Lakes DJ and Pianist: Andrew Westphal. Most of the reviews are from Wedding Wire, a third party website where clients can review wedding professionals. Westphal Music has been awarded the Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award the last three four years in a row–2014, 2015, 2016 and now 2017.

I don’t even know how to BEGIN to say how amazing Andrew is. He is truly the best! I found Andrew through a friend who attended a wedding he DJ’d and reached out shortly after we set a date for our wedding. He has a super user-friendly client portal on his website where you can enter your wedding timeline, song request lists, do no play songs, etc. In addition to being an incredible DJ, he is also an accomplished musician and he played some great tunes on the piano during our cocktail hour. Andrew’s DJ skills kept our guests (and the bride and groom!) on the dance floor all night long. He is incredibly responsive to emails, is super professional, and he’s also one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. It was truly an honor to have him DJ our wedding! A few days after my wedding, one of my best friends was on her way to another wedding and she texted me and told me while she and her husband were on the way to that wedding her husband said “No wedding DJ will ever be as good as the one at Becca and Tyler’s wedding”. It’s totally true. Hire Andrew, you will NOT be disappointed!
~Becca, Saratoga National Museum of Dance Wedding


When we first found Andrew Westphal on wedding wire, we read the testimonials and honestly doubted if such an excellent DJ could exist. But those doubts were thrown out the window from the moment we began working with him. We felt so at ease the months leading up to the wedding because of his comprehensive and easy to use online tools and our regular check ins. He responded to our emails promptly and helped us figure out every last detail. Andrew worked completely along side us and offered his expertise to help create the wedding of our dreams. From setting up, to the processional and recessional, to the cocktail hour and dancing, everything was better than we could have hoped. We anticipated maybe a quarter of our guests would dance but all through the night the dance floor was packed with so many of our family and friends. The energy was just fantastic and he kept it going all night long. Everyone attending the wedding could not stop talking about how wonderful he was and we could not agree more. —Allison & Bobby via WeddingWire


Hire Andrew. Period. He is the most professional, talented, and dedicated DJ I have ever come across. Almost no one at our wedding left early, and that was almost purely because of the atmosphere Andrew created (and Andrew not once brought attention to himself). We had guests tell us that it was the most fun they’ve had at a wedding in years, and that they wanted to take a break from the dance floor, but they just couldn’t find a good song to skip! Andrew also played piano for our ceremony and cocktail, and it was some of the most beautiful piano playing I’ve ever heard. On top of all this, Andrew is fun and so pleasant to be around – we couldn’t have asked for a nicer DJ to run our wedding. I simply can’t say enough about Andrew as a DJ, musician, and person. You can’t go wrong hiring Andrew!! —Hao + Molly, John Joseph Inn Wedding, Lansing NY


WOW! How can we even begin to thank you? You were absolutely, unequivocally phenomenal and the best DJ (and musician) we’ve ever experienced at a wedding. You blew us and all of our guests away.

Thank you for the best dance party ever! Send anyone our way for a recommendation. Best, Alex + Evan


Hi Andrew…..I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for making Brielle and Brad’s wedding last week at Suzanne’s such a success. They were thrilled! Everyone who has called me to talk about the wedding has commented about you! The song choices kept everyone on the dance floor, regardless of age. The volume was perfect..no ears were blasted. Your piano playing at the cocktail hour was great. One of my dear friends, an accomplished pianist and a former elementary school band teacher, couldn’t stop raving about you. I especially loved the rendition of hava nagila. To add to compliments, Bob Stack, the owner of Suzanne’s said you were the best DJ who has ever done a wedding there! You had a smile on your face and really appeared to love what you were doing.

I can’t wait to see the video and relive all those special moments. To sum it all up, I wish you a long and prosperous career!  All my best, Susan, Lodi NY Wedding, Suzanne’s Fine Regional Cuisine


Music makes or breaks a wedding. Andrew Westphal made our wedding ceremony and reception the best night ever. Our guests still ask who did the music and rave about how much fun they had. Every single person was dancing. Initially, Andrew played the piano before and after out ceremony. It was perfect and he was seamless in the transition to dancing the night away. Our wedding was put together in just over three weeks. Andrew was highly organized and unbelievably easy to deal with. We let him make the majority of the musical choices (but you can plan your entire night with his extensive planner) and our trust was well placed. Phenomenal professional and worth every penny. —Laurie, Wadsworth Homestead Wedding, Geneseo, NY


Andrew. is. the. best. Do yourself a favor, stop looking at other vendors and book him immediately. Our wedding ceremony and reception were absolutely perfect thanks to him. Our guests said we had the best dance party they’ve ever been a part of and it was entirely thanks to Andrew. The planning process was simple, organized and efficient and he was a pleasure to work with. Could not recommend him more. ~Alex via Weddingwire


I have nothing but awesome, positive things to say about Andrew Westphal. He was the DJ for our June 2013 wedding in the Capital Region of Upstate NY, and did everything absolutely perfectly. The dance floor was hopping from start to finish, even with record breaking heat where we live the day of my wedding in a non-air conditioned building (which typically would have been fine). We gave him a set list and he stuck to it like we asked with just a little improv, which was completely excellent & crowd pleasing. Plus, prior to the wedding in a meeting he kindly offered a few suggestions which we added and they were perfect. By the way, if you prefer that your DJ pick your music, I have complete confidence he’d do a great job at that too. To top it off (x3), he is an incredibly nice person and enjoyable to work with, his website and demeanor were extremely professional, and he is a talented pianist!! He played piano during our cocktail hour which I loved. Also, when I was researching DJs, all of Andrew’s reviews seemed too good to be true, so I actually called Hunter Mountain independently to get a review directly from a wedding coordinator – that sealed my confidence, and indeed he lived up to the reputation posted on the wedding wire. We can’t thank Andrew enough for helping our guests dance the night away in spite of the insane heat and helping our wedding to be such an awesome, fun party.

Hi Andrew,
The wedding was everything we could have possibly hoped for! We had such a blast!

We just wanted to drop you a quick note and say that we really appreciated your hard work – and staying super late. The music was awesome! We have never danced so hard and long in our lives. As one friend told us the next day, “I kept trying to go sit down and rest but then he put on another perfect song and I just couldn’t physically leave the dance floor!”.

We couldn’t have pulled off such an awesome reception or ceremony without you. Everything was perfect…

Once we decompress a bit, we’d love to write you a formal testimonial.

Thank you!! You absolutely crushed it man.
Eric & Riana


So happy that we booked Andrew for our 50 person wedding in Hudson, NY. He played the piano (beautifully I might add) for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner service, and then switched over to DJ mode to really get the party started. He was so fun and did an awesome job. I never would have dreamed that we would have that much dancing at our wedding but the floor was literally never empty. Parents, friends, and kids were all loving his selections. He was exactly what we were looking for – could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Andrew!! ~Elizabeth, Helsinki Hudson Wedding DJ + Pianist Review


Andrew is a total gem and we are so lucky that we found him! He is extremely kind, understanding, easy going, and fun. We had a lot of questions about timelines and etiquette and he was so helpful. It should be said that we drew upon his knowledge and experience to essentially plan out the entire flow of our wedding. His website is very user-friendly, with an extensive list of music to choose from. We had a few unique music requests and he had no problem adding them on. He was very intuitive and knew the right music for the right moment, which kept everyone on the dance floor the whole evening. Our wedding was absolutely amazing and we owe much of that to Andrew. He’s a very talented person, and we couldn’t recommend him more!
~ Ashley & Ben, Watkins Glen NY Wedding


It’s over 6 months post-wedding and I am still getting rave reviews from my guests about Andrew. I do not have enough positive things to say about him – he was simply amazing! Pre-wedding: -extremely communicative pre-wedding (phone calls, emails, great tools on his website) -he made sure he knew exactly what we wanted for schedule, music styles, etc, and had great suggestions based off his experience -he procured all requested songs, plus we provided a couple cultural/personal ones -we came up with a great schedule of events, felt good about the music that would be played, and had no worries going into the big day. Ceremony: -Outdoors; he provided a portable speaker/mic system for the officiant, plus played piano & requested songs. Beautiful. -The vendor providing chairs didn’t show up – that sucked. But Andrew stepped in asking “what can I do to help”. When some chairs showed up late, he voluntarily helped pin flowers to them. Bottom line – he’s a great guy. Reception: -Played piano for cocktail hour = was great. -MC: he kept touching base with us throughout the night regarding the different “events” like cake cutting, etc. We had loose time frames for when each should take place, but he read the crowd and suggested when we move into each event, in between the dancing. Result = great flow, low stress. -DJ skills – I don’t even know what to say here, he was just straight up AMAZING. You have no idea how many guests raved about Andrew, even still MONTHS after the wedding. Every single song was perfect and kept the crowd on the dance floor and the energy levels high. His flow and music choice was perfect. Beyond that, he was rocking out behind his DJ equipment and worked up a sweat dancing himself, and everyone was lovin it! So not only did he make the night amazing for us, but he was the key to making our party a total BLAST for all of our guests. Andrew is amazing. Hire him for your wedding and you will be thrilled. —Alex + Alicia Wedding, Boatyard Grill, Ithaca, NY


Andrew was awesome! Every single one of our friends asked about the DJ because the music was that fun! No one left the dance floor all night! He played everything we asked and he put it into an order that made sense for the flow of the evening. I have nothing but good things to say about working with Andrew. I would use him again in a heartbeat and will recommend him to everyone I know in Ithaca!! —Rachel, Fontainebleau Inn wedding, Alpine NY


We hired Andrew to play piano during our cocktail hour and to DJ during the subsequent reception. He was outstanding in both capacities. He played some old-timey ragtime music during the cocktail hour and that was really great to set the mood for our barn wedding. We also felt he went above and beyond, learning a song to play for our procession. After the ceremony, he switched into DJ mode. We had used his online planning application to specify playlists, but he did a great job of selecting from those, and of adding his own choices, depending on the mood of the crowd. He’s very sensitive to the room, and I can think of two specific instances in which that really came through: 1) at various times, my groom and/or I got pulled in to dance while people formed a circle around us. Getting out of that situation can be kind of awkward, but Andrew would gracefully end the song every time we made a move out of the circle, making our exit look completely natural; and 2) we didn’t choose an official “final song,” though we had “With a Little Help From My Friends” on our list of requested songs. Andrew intuited that that would make for a great final song, and it absolutely did – our friends and family circled up arm in arm and we had a little sing-a-long. It was one of my favorite moments from our wedding, and we owe it to Andrew. To sum it up: Andrew is a talented, professional DJ, with great taste. Hiring him as a musician/DJ combo makes for cohesive wedding entertainment for a great value. —Katy & Rob, Silver Queen Farm – Trumansburg NY


Andrew played the piano for our wedding ceremony and was the DJ for our reception this past August in the Catskills. We had some odd (not typical) requests for the piano music during the ceremony and he did not even hesitate when we asked him if he could play them. They sounded so beautiful and people were so impressed with such a nice spin on ceremony music. For the reception, he listened to our requests and definitely was great at reading the crowd to know what to play. We had a very diverse crowd but Andrew’s choices seemed to please everyone! We had a long reception but people were still dancing all night. Andrew was so easy to communicate with during the planning and was very responsive to our questions. We are two people who are very picky about music and Andrew did a great job keeping the party going!
Lauren & Ivan, Maple Shade Farm Wedding, Delhi, NY


Andrew was incredibly professional, kind, respectful of our wishes, flexible and easy to work with. He was also awesome at getting people to dance and enjoy themselves at our wedding, which is exactly what we wanted. And not only did he DJ for us but he also played the piano! Multi-talented and such a great guy.
Emily & Jermiah


Andrew made our night even better than we could’ve asked for – leading up to the day, he showed true professionalism, recommendations and flexibility – and really just asked all of the right questions. He was very focused on making our night ours completely. He organized a day of flow in advance of the day, we went through our (very detailed and handpicked) playlists and he had a deep understanding of our taste and what was important to play right away. We got complimented all night on the music, the dancing was continuous and the energy stayed high the entire time. At one point during the reception Andrew kindly mentioned that we were running a bit behind and he helped us get the events moving again and adjusted accordingly. He was just so helpful from start to finish. To top it off, he sent us a beautiful thank you card, with a picture of us taken from his vantage point at the ceremony. Just a wonderful, kind person. Andrew – thank you and I hope you continue to prosper – your business is flawless. —Boatyard Grill Wedding, Ithaca NY


From our initial phone inquiry through the last song played at our wedding, we found Andrew to be a joy to work with. Before the big day, he answered all of our questions and was very responsive both via phone/video chats and via email such that we were very assured going into the wedding that we were on the same page and had everything set both for the ceremony and the reception.

Andrew played piano for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well as DJing the reception. We chose some contemporary songs for our ceremony music and he adapted them to the piano beautifully. He worked with our officiant to review timing and cues before the ceremony and all the music went off without a hitch.

As DJ, Andrew was equally fantastic. He played a great playlist through dinner, incorporating some of our own song choices and some of his own to create the perfect atmosphere. Once dancing started it was more of the same – some songs we’d requested and a few of Andrew’s picks all very well timed to keep the dance floor upbeat and to provide a great flow to the evening.

We had a small wedding and were initially going to opt for a ‘DIY route’ with the music, asking a friend to man an i-pod. After such a fun and seamless evening, we can’t imagine having tried to pull off our celebration without the aid of such an apt professional. In addition to his musical talent on the piano and at the DJ booth, Andrew was a huge help in just keeping the evening’s events running smoothly. We did not have an event planner, but Andrew kept the celebration on mark for everything from transitioning from cocktail hour to the reception, introductions and toasts, first dances and cake cutting. He is organized, professional, talented, and we couldn’t be more happy with our choice to hire him. We whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone looking for beautiful music for their ceremony and a really great dance-party at their reception. —Leigh


Andrew was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was incrediblely helpful throughout the entire process, to helping structure the day, to providing guidance for song choices, he was easy to communicate with and very responsive. The actual wedding day was perfect in large part due to his talent and expertise. His piano playing and DJing provided the perfect blend for the evening. I received so many compliments from people of all ages on his music selections. He was able to get all generations out on the dance floor. Booking Andrew was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding and we are so glad we did! ~Laura, Gratitude & Grace Wedding Review, Finger Lakes NY


Andrew was such an incredible addition to our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with him as our DJ and cocktail hour musician! Most of our guests said he was the best DJ they’ve ever experienced at a wedding and we completely agree! He not only was the DJ for our reception, but also played the piano during cocktail hour and it was fantastic. Andrew worked with us to ensure he understood the vibe of the wedding and made sure all of our must have music was incorporated into the day. Andrew is a professional when using the mic and only brings attention to himself when it is necessary, definitely not one of those cheesy announcer types. He was able to get everyone on the dance floor with his music selections throughout the entire night, with guests chanting for an encore at the end. Andrew was such a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him!
Adriana, Shadow Lawn Wedding, High Falls, NY


My friends and family thought I was crazy for hiring someone I had never met to play at my wedding but after reading all the great reviews on Andrew I was willing to take the risk and boy am I glad I did!

Andrew truly is the full package.. We had him play the piano during our cocktail hour and it was extremely classy and elegant. He is an amazing musician.

We pretty much gave Andrew Carte Blanche with music for the reception and he did a fantastic job playing to the crowd! Our guest were out on the dance floor non stop from the beginning of the night right until the end of the last dance!

At the end of the night we got tons of compliments on the music and our choice if DJ. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to hire Andrew, he was such a pleasure to work with. I would have him play for us again and would absolutely recommend him to everyone!!

Thank you for helping make our wedding night such a huge success! ~Antonia & Keith


Andrew Westphal absolutely deserves a 5 star rating. His quality of service was perfect. He learned specifically requested songs for my wedding ceremony and played them more beautifully than the original recordings. His musical flow during the reception worked fantastically. He always had people on the dance floor having a great time and knew the best moments to bring it down for slow dances. In dealing with Andrew prior to the event he always responded quickly to my emails and was always clear about any details we had to go over. He works very hard for his clients to make sure that THEY are happy and his rates are very fair. He is worth every penny. When some last minute changes were thrown into the mix, he handled them with ease and things ran very smoothly. He was cool calm and collected the whole night and he is really easy to talk to when you have an idea. There was no stress involved with dealing with him. He is a professional through and through and we were able to trust him with making sure everything went well. We really appreciate the time he put into working on our wedding and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ or musician for their big day.


Andrew was great to work with from the very first inquiry to the last song of the night. He played all of our favorites and the evening flowed beautifully. He even weathered a wicked thunderstorm with ease and professionalism. He kept the party going even after we had to move it inside for the evening, due to the storm. The venue asked us for his info to recommend to other clients and our friends are still asking for our playlist. We highly recommend Andrew. —2015 Lodi NY Wedding (via weddingwire)


Andrew was a fantastic wedding DJ, and he also did a fantastic job of playing piano for our ceremony. He has legit musical chops, which not only allows him to serve both these roles, but it takes his DJing to another level. He kept the dance floor full all night and catered to everyone at the reception with a great mix of genres and styles. He was also a pleasure to work with leading up to the event and made us feel comfortable the entire time (and we’re pretty selective when it comes to music). I would definitely recommend Andrew.
~Adam & Meredith, Heron Hill Wedding, Hammondsport, NY


 Andrew was professional, personable, and reliable from the minute we chose him as our DJ. He guided us through the entire process, and with our input, really created an expert playlist for our wedding. Because of him, our wedding atmosphere was flawless. People were on the dance floor within the first song or two, and the bridal party introductions were exactly on queue. He hit every song at the exact moment, and really made it a party to remember. I’ve never been to a wedding where people were dancing and enjoying themselves until the very last song; however, this changed with our wedding. 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 and his excellent work. We highly recommend Andrew for any and all of your music needs!
~Bryan and Rachel Humes


Andrew was absolutely terrific! I had so many people at the wedding tell me how wonderful the music was. Everyone, young and old was up dancing the entire reception. He seamlessly mixed all the songs I had requested with requests from guests and made it such an amazing day. He even handled a power outage caused by the caterer with ease. He was a constant presence without being overbearing, which is exactly what we had asked of him. Also he was such a nice guy to work with, so accomodating to changes we made last minute. I honestly can’t say enough nice things about Andrew and would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone planning a special event.
Martin & Eric


Andrew Westphal did an amazing job working with us on our summer wedding at Sonnenberg Gardens. He was very flexible in working with Sonnenberg and made sure that he had all of the extra equipment necessary for our outdoor wedding. It was great to have someone who is also a musician because he was able to arrange the ceremony in a unique and very personal way. He also did a great job selecting music for the reception, everyone was on the dance floor for the entire evening and all of our friends commented on how great the dance music was. Overall he did a really great job with everything and his professionalism and knowledge of his craft made sure that the music was one thing we didn’t have to worry about.
~ Ann, Sonnenberg Gardens Wedding, Canadaigua NY


DJ Andrew Westphal is the best there is! My dad really wanted a band just like he had at his wedding, but after hearing Andrew he said that he was better than a band! And it couldn’t be more true! Andrew played the piano during our ceremony, cocktail hour, and during dinner and then he got the dancing started! His music that he played was so beautiful and couldn’t have been more perfect! From the very beginning when first talking with Andrew I knew he was the right fit for us. He was so nice to talk to and shared my exact vision for the day. He was so organized and was always there to answer any questions. Whenever we spoke I never felt rushed through the planning and I just knew that I could count on him since this wasn’t his first rodeo. I took his lead because he said it had my back! He even helped my sister with a special audio/visual piece for her speech. That was above and beyond! We are so grateful to Andrew for making our day a success and for keeping everyone out on the dance floor with us! Best DJ of all time! ~Marielle, John Joseph Inn Wedding DJ Review

Andrew is awesome! We had two distinct parts to our wedding – the outdoor cocktail party and ceremony then the reception upstairs in the barn at the Millbrook Winery. Andrew provided music for both – he played the grand piano for the ceremony and the cocktail hour and then DJ’d for the reception. I can’t explain enough how perfect all the selections, timing and overall execution was. Our music tastes are so all over the place that I felt bad even trying to explain to him and have it make sense. He was able to put into words, or music should I say, our intentions exactly as we’d hoped. He read the crowd, kept the party alive when we were up dancing, accompanied the cocktail hour with perfect mood-setting selections, and the perfect build up during the ceremony. Can’t wait to book him for another event – he “gets” it!
Mara & Matt


The best! Andrew was the perfect DJ, and I would recommend him to anyone.

Andrew communicated well in the months leading up to the wedding. He has all the tools to help you set up the songs you want in advance. All our questions were answered promptly and we knew that we would not have any issues with our music.

You will get the whole package with Andrew, perfect timing, your choice in song selection and he is a great piano player as well. There were music choices for everyone. During dinner Andrew played the piano and my 4 year old niece was up dancing around. He was so great at playing her requests and really made her night.

Not one issue with any part of his service. Our guests were up dancing all night. Our friends are still talking about how much of a great time our wedding was and I know that Andrew played a huge role.

If you’re getting married and want a flawless night, go with Andrew Westphal, you won’t regret it.

Kyle & Kalie, John Joseph Inn Wedding, Groton NY


Andrew was perfect for our wedding! He played piano during the cocktail hour that added a really classy touch. He was very flexible in working with a family member who sang at the wedding and was able to provide the necessary equipment for her. We had a relatively small wedding (45 people) and I was not sure if many people would dance but Andrew spent time with us before the event to help choose songs and read the guests perfectly to time the selections. Almost everyone danced most of the night!

I would highly recommend Westphal Music for any event! ~Heather & Christian, Aurora Inn Wedding, Aurora NY


Dear Andrew,

We cannot thank you enough for your amazing entertainment during our wedding day. You are so talented and your services are beyond any we have experienced at any other wedding. Our guests could not stop complimenting your work, and many asked for your information for future events. You really impressed us by spending so much time discussing our wedding prior to the big day. Our wedding would not have been as personalized without your help. Wishing you the best, Kyle and Kalie


An Evening to Remember…    posted 8/11/2011
Andrew is a very talented musician on top of being a wonderful DJ. His theme is very low-key, which is exactly what type of DJ we were looking for. He knew exactly when to slow things down, and when to pick things up. He was very accommodating, and his website was very practical and user-friendly. There are sections for the bride and groom to choose their wedding music, special requests, and even an area for guests to select music. All-in-all, a wonderful DJ, very professional, great price, and a very nice person to work with! ~gina111, via the Knot


Andrew is the best!
Andrew was our DJ, our piano player and our party starter. He was professional, easy to work with and he really listened to what we wanted. He rolled with all of the punches and was always right there when we needed him the night of (checking in with us and making sure we were happy) I would recommend him a thousand times over.
~Nessa7432, Bronx, NY via the Knot


From the moment I met with Andrew until the end of the event he met all of my expectations. He went out of his way to make sure he could meet all my song requests and any of those requested by my guests. Andrew was gracious, easy to work with, and accommodating in every way. I only wish I had hired him to do my daughters weddings rather than incur the huge expense of hiring a band. Bottom line HIRE HIM.
–James Schwab
Pawling, New York


Andrew was amazing! He played our ceremony and cocktail music beautifully. He had all of our guests up and dancing. Everyone had a great time at our wedding and Andrew is a major reason why people had so much fun! Andrew really listened to what we wanted played and was overall a pleasure to deal with. My husband and I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this DJ to any future brides.
~Deirdre & Brendon


Andrew played the piano for our wedding service and reception. He was great to deal with during the planning process, he accommodated easily any special requests we had and was very easy to work with and very helpful in making sure everything was perfect. His keyboard talent is excellent, he made our day all that much more special. The music was wonderful! I would highly recommend Andrew for your event, wedding or otherwise, he made every part from the planning to the wedding a wonderful experience and all our guests commented on how beautiful he played… he truly added to making our day so special
~David & Michael


Andrew was wonderful to work with. He promptly replied to all of our questions and concerns prior to the wedding and took all of our ideas into consideration. He even edited our first dance song and went through a very long list of requests…Andrew helped set the tone for the entire evening, he worked closely with us on creating the perfect playlists for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. He was flexible throughout the evening and played requests from the wedding party and guests. He kept everyone dancing throughout the evening and people raved about the music that was played. We were incredibly happy and would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.
–Tara and Matt
Newburgh, NY


He expertly blended our playlist with other songs to suit all of the age groups at our wedding so everyone had songs to dance to. Most of our guests were on the dance floor the whole night and didn’t want him to leave at the end of the reception. I can’t even count the amount of times our guests have already commented how great he was. We highly recommend Andrew.
~Catherine & Matt


Andrew provided cocktail and dance music for our daughter’s wedding. He was a true professional and was dependable and thorough. His web site is easy to navigate and he made it easy for us to pick the songs we wanted. Everybody danced and had a great time!
–Janice Sullivan


Andrew provided a really good mix of music to suit the tastes of everyone in attendance at our function, regardless of age. The vibe of the music brought everyone to the dance floor. I would highly recommend Andrew. Best private DJ I have ever worked with, very professional. Will be hiring Andrew in the future for additional functions.
–Raymond Jordan
Newark, Delaware


Andrew was incredibly flexible and we are so thankful that he seemed on top of it. He asked the right questions to be able to handle the events as they panned out on the big day. He provided his own set up and lights that weren’t tacky, he played the perfect music at the right times and was great at getting people up and dancing. He’s extremely professional and he doesn’t give off that cheesy vibe that I’ve gotten from other DJ’s.

We highly recommend Mr. Westphal to DJ at any event.
–Mathew via Wedding Wire


Andrew is definitely my DJ for any future events. I must have canvased about a dozen DJ’s and Andrew was the most professional, prompt, and polite out of all of them. I was also more than pleased with his on-line request system. His fees are more than reasonable for the services provided and he was a hit with the guests. Not only was he a master at his profession, but he enjoyed learning about new music from party goers who were from other countries and cultures. His ability to diversify and adapt to the changing mood of the crowd makes him a must hire for your event.
–Dietrich Orris


Andrew is probably the nicest guy i have ever met! He took requests and even played some salsa (a request) at the very end. People were dancing – and all was good! His website allowed me to browse through thousands of songs and he even had a “most requested play list” that had exactly the kind of music for the party. I am confident that people left with a very good impression and that andrew will be deejaying very soon for some friends. Bravo!
–Stephen B, Highland, NY


Andrew is a very professional and organized DJ. He always answered all questions via email or phone call within the hour they were asked! He also goes out of his way to get special request music available for your event. It is not always easy to find a suitable DJ for an event, being that this type of service relies heavily on word-of-mouth referrals. I hired Andrew for my wedding, and am very happy with his level of professionalism. He was a pleasure to work with, and I felt confident with choosing him every step of the way.
Thank you, Andrew!
Gina & Franco

More reviews from The Wedding Wire:

Andrew dj’ed our wedding at Hunter Mountain this past Saturday and he was the best. He really caught our “vibe”…We loved his web-based song request & planning system because it made it easy to add songs requests as we thought of them. We were really happy that instead of playing the same tired music you hear at every wedding, Andrew played more interesting and diverse music. I would recommend Andrew to anyone that has more sophisticated musical tastes, and wants to have a distinctive and memorable wedding soundtrack…


We asked Andrew to DJ late-night at our Sep 2011 wedding. On very short notice, he was responsive, easy to work with, and did an amazing job. He has a great feel for the crowd and kept us all dancing. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others or use him again!
