  • Where do I even begin??! Alex is absolutely incredible. By far, the best decision I made during our wedding planning was hiring Alex to handle all of our music! Music is a hugely important thing in my life - I’m always the one at events that people turn to to “DJ” and play music, make a playlist, etc etc. So handing over the reigns to someone to be in charge of the music on MY wedding day was NO easy task. Alex was truly a no brainer for me. I wanted one person in charge of it all - the ceremony, the cocktail hour, and the reception. Alex exceeded all of our expectations. For the ceremony, I wanted to walk down the aisle to a popular song - but the piano version, no lyrics - I found a piano cover of the song on YouTube, and I sent it to Alex and was like “hey, can you learn this?” LOL - but not only did he learn it, he completely crushed it! It was perfection. Alex also played acoustic guitar at our cocktail hour - we let him pick the songs and do his thing, and we received S... Read more

    You. Are. Unreal. What an incredible review, Kiersten. Your wedding was so, so, so much fun, and I continue to relive moments from that day with my circle of vendor friends who were all a part of it. We all agree -- you threw the party of the year! :) Hope to see you soooooooooon!

  • 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!

  • WOW! I am having trouble finding other words to describe how the music and the band made our night the incredible night it was. Alex created a custom song for my dad inclusive of a few of our favorite songs growing up. He was so surprised as the songs kept playing. It was so unique and I wasn't sure if anyone would be able to create a track that different. We are STILL getting compliments on the overall performance of the night. You won't be let down.

    It was SUCH a pleasure to work with you, Nina, and the band had the best time playing your celebration. Call us for the 1-year anniversary throwdown. ;) Looking forward to seeing you out and about in the near future!

  • Alex was amazing and made our day so special!! He was very accommodating, flexible with our song choices, and obviously sounded amazing. All of our guest came up to us to let us know how great he was! He made our ceremony so special! Hire him!

    It was such a lovely evening with you all, and wonderful to see the same circle of people again after playing Ashley's celebration a few months back. Thanks so much for the kind review! Looking forward to seeing you all out and about sometime soon :)

  • Alex is without a doubt someone you want in your corner in your wedding day! Not only is he extremely talented, but he goes above and beyond in every way. He learned a couple of very special songs for us, and my guests could not stop talking about his amazing acoustic performance during the ceremony and cocktail hour. At the reception when the party sort of fell apart (thanks COVID) he kept going strong to ensure we had the wedding we envisioned! Oh and I should mention, he didn’t cancel on us even though his son was born the morning of our wedding! If that doesn’t speak to his character and professionalism, I don’t know what does. He made our wedding special and I cannot recommend him enough!

    You made my week, Laurie! It was my distinct pleasure to bring music to your wedding, and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. While COVID might have limited us a bit, I still think we threw a great party together. Let's make up for it with a 1-year anniversary party, eh? ;) Thank you, thank you, thank youuuuuuuuuuu...

  • Having Alex and his crew part of our day was the best decision ever! They were amazing! He made the entire music selection process so easy and worked with us to find exactly what we wanted. Alex played solo during our ceremony and then was joined by the guys for a trio during the reception. Everyone loved them and had so much fun! 10/10 would recommend and we will be recommending him to all our friends!

    We had THE BEST time with you all, Cynthia, and I don't think our bassist will ever forget those delicious waffles for brunch. (hahaaaaaaaaaaaa...) Your family was lovely, the venue was perfect and it was just a beautiful day spent together. Thank you for including us in your celebration :)

  • Alex Ruwe is a wedding must! Seriously, you can end your search now. He is AMAZING to work with on so many levels - communication is great, super flexible, offers feedback and suggestions...the list goes on and on. Plus he's just a super chill, fun guy who enjoys music and is passionate about what he does - so you know he's going to rock whatever job he's doing. But one of the things I loved most about working with Alex is his willingness to learn and try new things. The song I walked down the aisle to and our first dance song were not ones that Alex was familiar with before I "requested" them. But that didn't stop him from learning both and playing a beautiful version on our wedding day. It was absolutely perfect and I can't wait to get the recordings (what other dj/band does that!?). Do yourself a favor, pick Alex - you won't regret it! Alex, we LOVED having you be a part of our wedding day. It made it that much more special and we can't thank you enough.

    What a kind and thoughtful review, Amber. Thank you, thank you, thank you... I love what I get to do with music, and to know that it has a positive impact on important moments in people's lives means the world. See you soon, I hope! :)

  • 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!!

  • 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

    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

  • 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 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!
