  • The cost of Alexander Ruwe band was perfectly in line with what we were expecting to pay, and the quality was top notch. His song book range was impressive, and the band was willing to learn some songs by our request. Alex custom blended three different songs into one for our first dance track which was absolutely perfect. He made three different edits to ensure it transitioned seamlessly, and took all of our feedback to heart. Our dance floor was packed the entire time, and everyone complimented our incredible live band. The emcee-ing was perfect (not too obnoxious, which is a complaint I have regarding most weddings we attend). The mix of live music + pre-recorded tunes was just right, as well a nice balance of fast dance tracks and crowd-pleasing slow dance songs. The groom's uncle surprised everyone with a guitar solo, which got the dance floor started, and Alex + his band joined right in as if it were planned. My husband and I are particular about what music we like, and Alex real... Read more

    We had more fun than we deserved at your one of a kind celebration, Ellen! :) Thank you so much for including us. I, myself, or the band, would gladly bring music to an event for you, or anyone near and dear to you, anytime! See you soon, I hope!

  • Alex was absolutely amazing! We had to change our venue twice because of Covid and Alex worked with us through the whole process! In the end, we had a backyard wedding that was livestreamed and everyone there physically and virtually commented on how much they loved Alex! The acoustic music during our ceremony helped give it a super personal touch! Then, later in the evening when it started raining, Alex let us move him under a 10 X 20 tent and we kept the after party going for another 2 hours in the rain! We could not have asked for a better DJ! Alex truly cared about us and making our day the best day it could be! We 1000% plan on using Alex for any and all music needs in the future and he will be someone that we recommend to anyone who is looking for a DJ! Thanks so much Alex!!!

    What a lovely and hilaaaaaaaaaaaarious evening we shared together, team! Watching all of you dive into buckets of ice cold water while we danced and partied in the rain together is something I'll never forget. Thank you so much for your kind words. Can't wait to see you both again soon!

  • Where do I even begin? I will just cut to the chase... if you want an acoustic guitarist with an amazing voice and fun personality, YOU NEED TO HIRE ALEX FOR YOUR WEDDING!! Friends and family were blown away by how great he was. My family are huge music nerds and I asked him to learn at least 15 sounds for our wedding specifically. He did, and they were all perfect. He even created a rendition of an electronic dance music song that is my husband and I’s favorite song- and somehow turned it into a super special romantic version. Same with one of my favorite Kanye West songs- he somehow turned it into a super cool version. He provided microphones and a clip microphone for my officiant, a huge speaker, and came early and set up. He also stayed about 30 mins later than what we hired him for. Lastly- he is one of the most friendly and warm people we’ve ever met. So kind and excited about our big day. I could keep going on and on about Alex... but to sum it up: just hire him. You won’t...

  • YOU GUYS! I first heard Alex play/sing at a wedding show at the Ritz Carlton and I knew I had to have him be part of our special day. I didn’t even have the venue yet but I knew I had my ceremony music!!! I would describe his style as John Mayer on steroids, haha! We booked him to play the music at our outdoor ceremony, outdoor cocktail hour and first dances at the reception. It was more beautiful that I could have imagined. He even nailed the country song we had for our first dance. Everyone thought he was just playing the guitar and he had the real music playing in the background. No!! He sounded JUST like Kane Brown. Also - talk about easy going. He was the only vendor we worked with that was willing to be flexible IF we would have had to cancel due to Covid. He made our wedding so special. PLEASE do yourself a favor and book him today or at least go listen to him play at a local spot!!

    Youuuuuu made my entire month, Alishia! Your kind words mean more than you could even know. Thank you so much for including me in the celebration. Let's do it again soon... ;)

  • Put your hands together for Alex Ruwe!! This vocalist/guitarist/ DJ (probably many other musical talents that I am forgetting) is absolutely amazing! I was a bride that had to reschedule my wedding 3 different times during COVID 19 and he was accommodating, flexible (even with a trip planned during for my new wedding date) and wonderful to work with! He put my husband and I first and we would work with him again in the future. We had guests literally come up to us at our wedding telling us that he could have sang for the entire wedding-that is how beautiful his voice is! I 200% recommend him for any occasion!!

    Ohhhhhh you made my entire month, Cassie. The truth is you could have changed it 100x, and I wouldn't have missed it. :) Thank you for allowing me to play a small part in a truly special celebration. Looking forward to seeing you all again soooooon! -Alex

  • My husband and I got married in the middle of the pandemic and Alex went above and beyond to accommodate all of the changes. He was so fun and easy to work with and our guests LOVED him! From the acoustic ceremony to the dj’d reception, Alex absolutely killed it!!

    Youuuuuuu are the best. It was not the wedding you initially planned, but we all seem to agree that the intimacy of it was so much more. It was a perfect day, and I was honored and thrilled to be apart of it all. Hope to see you and Xavier again sometime soon!

  • Oh my God, Alex was amazing. This is going to be a hard statement to write, because Alex was just so great in every way. He still has one of the best voices I've ever heard, it's smooth, dynamic, and he controls it so well. Alex is also one of the nicest guys I've ever come across. He always answers our emails/questions within a few days, is super easy to talk to, and has a great sense of humor. We genuinely consider him a friend at this point rather than a vendor. For our wedding, I was hesitant at first using a live band, since we would be limited in our song selection, but his song selections were SPOT on and everyone had such a great time. He had a solid mix of oldies that everyone knew and could sing along with, as well as current top 40 hits. He was also SUPER accommodating for the first dances for our wedding. He learned all of our song requests and made them his own (which we asked him to do) and they sounded amazing. He even took the time to meet up with one of our friends to ... Read more

    Thank you so much, Wells -- it was an honor! I can still close my eyes and go back to your and Paula's first dance. What a moment! Wishing you two the very best! -Alex

  • Alex played as a solo acoustic act for us, and he was the hit of our reception! We had so many people singing his praises (no pun intended)! Alex's song selection, overall sound, and sunny disposition made for an amazing addition to our special event. He set a beautiful mood for the guests, and couldn't have been more engaging. We are so thrilled that he was able to play for us at such a reasonable price; it was PERFECT! If you want a true, talented professional that has an amazing sound/vibe, CALL THIS GUY!

    You are farrrrrr too kind, Michaela! I had the best time playing for your guests, and I hope to cross paths with you all again soon!

  • Alex was impeccably great. He had an extremely positive attitude, was very accommodating, and has an instinct for managing the energy of the dance floor to great effect. He hit all of his music cues for the ceremony, and made the reception a party. Would absolutely recommend him as a DJ for any event. I literally have only good things to say about him.

  • Do yourself and make the easiest decision in your wedding planning by far. I have known Alex personally my entire life and there was no doubt in our minds that my husband and I wanted to book him to play at our wedding. I can truly vouch for his character and professionalism. Beyond that, he is extremely talented and experienced in the music industry. He is so easy to work with to make the day so special and tailored to how you envision it. I had so many comments and compliments from our guests on his talent and we couldn’t have been happier! You won’t regret hiring him for a second.

    You made my week, Kelsey! Thank you so much for your kind words. Being friends and family with your family for all these years has been one of life's great joys. See you soooooooon!
