  • Our family worked with Tyler Varnell for our son’s wedding on May 29, 2021 and he made the reception a blast! From the cocktail hour where he complemented the music with his saxophone to the reception where he provided lighting, music, emcee and more accompaniment…Tyler was AMAZING! Our friends and family commented that this was the best wedding that they had ever attended and Tyler was a huge part of that experience. Our son and daughter-in-law enjoyed planning their playlist with Tyler and he made sure to read the crowd on the dance floor (which was packed) when he chose each song. It was a magical evening!

  • From planning the details of the big day to the performance on our big day, Tyler was absolutely perfect! He is so professional and organized, yet full of enthusiasm and positive vibes. My now husband and I's family and friends have not stopped talking about how fabulous he was! We booked Tyler to play piano and saxophone, DJ and MC throughout our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Each section of the day was different, but cohesive and smooth. During the reception, he had almost every guest out of the dance floor. We HIGHLY recommend that you book Tyler for any of your events :) We plan to book him for sure in the future!!!

  • WOW. Tyler Varnell is a superstar. We hired Tyler at the recommendation of our DJ (Eric Morales of Extreme DJs) after mentioning we wanted to add an element of "live music" even though we wanted to hire a DJ for the evening. We hired Tyler to play Cocktail Hour solo and then accompany Eric during the reception -- dinner, dancing and after party. I'm not exaggerating when I say every single guest approached us during the wedding to tell us how incredible Tyler was. He is engaging, fun, talented and knows how to get the party started and keep it going. His song book covers all genres, and he played a variety of music that appealed to all guests, regardless of age (our families loved when he played Bruno Mars, and my girlfriends went INSANE when he played "Mr. Brightside" -- he can do it all!). He also played during our wedding party grand entrance and our first dance -- which kept our guests engaged. If you are looking for entertainment to truly "wow" your guests, hire Tyler. You won't b... Read more

  • We get to forever brag about having THE best entertainment at our wedding. Tyler began the ceremony by playing beautiful piano music and once cocktail hour began, he played saxophone. He had the best music and was not afraid to jump on in on the dance floor with us. No mess ups, schedule ran smoothly and he was very professional along with his assistant. So honored to have him on our special day, everyone was raving about him, so many people asked how to book him for future events. Tyler Varnell has our highest recommendation and made our day absolutely spectacular and memorable

  • We engaged Tyler as our sole musician for our wedding and he completely blew it out of the park! He's an absolute professional - exceptional and prompt communicator, generous with his time, very knowledgeable about the do/don'ts for music on the big day, highly engaging, and did I mention, extremely talented! We had an 18mo engagement and from the onset of our time getting to know, and working with, Tyler he was a pleasure to work with. Even throughout the stresses of COVID, Tyler was quick to calm our nerves and provide solutions. He puts so much time and effort into his prep and it was wonderful to see it all come together on our wedding day. Tyler even provided us with a (very) thorough script to ensure that we captured every moment of the wedding (this was a huge relief!). We had a very small wedding and Tyler helped us curate a great resume of songs for display on the sax, piano, and DJ/Emcee. By the end of the night, one of our guests even asked Tyler (directly) if he woul... Read more

  • Tyler did an amazing job at our wedding! Tyler was a great communicator and he went above and beyond to reassure us that our wedding day would be perfect. Tyler is the perfect musician for your wedding or special event as he is the perfect blend of DJ and live musician. Everyone raved about the live saxophone at our wedding. It was the perfect addition to our special day. Tyler was also a great emcee. He kept the party going and our guests loved his friendly personality. I would highly recommend hiring Tyler for your wedding or private event!

  • Tyler rocks!!! One word to describe Tyler: INCREDIBLE! From our very first conversation Tyler was a pleasure to work with. He made the whole process so easy for us, and helped us to navigate things and timing that we had not even thought about, which made everything stress free. His musical talent is amazing, from elegant piano for our ceremony, to jaw dropping saxophone and rocking our dance party with his DJ set! Tyler's performance throughout the night blew our guests away. So many compliments were made about Tyler. I will say we had one little issue arise between the venue changing times on us, and it was going to be difficult for Tyler to set up everything in time. But Tyler took our hiccup and rolled with it and made the best of a tough situation. Professionalism, courtesy, and mind blowing talent are some great ways to describe our experience, which truly made our day special! Thank you Tyler!

  • Tyler was INCREDIBLE! From our first FaceTime meeting to the day of the wedding he was just great! He gave us confidence in that he knew what he was doing and our guests absolutely loved him! He took Covid precautions seriously & truly made our wedding the party we wanted! You’ll truly be missing out if you don’t hire Tyler!

  • Tyler is the man. Talent, Personality, and Professionalism beyond imagine. My man didn’t only play a list of some 40 English songs, no, he learned 3 separate arabic songs and played them FLAWLESSLY. As if he was a native. The sax can be described as an extension of tyler and he knows it soo well as if its part of his body. He stayed longer than he should’ve, probably cuz he enjoyed our company 😂 and cuz he cares about the overall feel of the event. Our wedding was elevated from classy to magnificent because of his touch. So many people thought that the sax was just an elegant element to the overall feel. Amazing Tyler.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Tyler Varnell at a wedding, and he was simply AMAZING! He is a talented musician and DJ, and awesome to work with. Our client is still raving about their fastastic experience with Tyler. As a planner/coordinator you depend on the entertainment to know what they are doing to keep the event live. No doubt, Tyler knows exactly what he is doing. I would highly recommend his company to all couples who want the "All-in-One" incredible experience of down right fun from pre-ceremony to very end of the reception. Look no further, he's your guy! I can not wait to work with Tyler Varnell again.

  • Are you debating whether or not to have a Saxophone player (Tyler) play at your wedding or event?! Wellllll, let me make it easy for you...DO IT!!! WOW! I had the privilege of seeing Tyler in action at one of my best friends wedding and as soon as I heard him play I KNEW I had to have him play at my wedding! And sure enough, 1 year later, my wedding rolls around and I reach out to Tyler. He is the kindest most professional most talented musician you’ll ever meet. He made our entertainment at our wedding! You can tell he has been working his magic for a very long time, his dedication to his skill is certainly obvious. And let me add, one thing I truly appreciate and am so grateful for is Tyler’s flexibility. Due to COVID, we had to postpone our wedding twice and not once did Tyler ever question or give me a hard time about it. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much Tyler, you are truly amazing at your skill and you truly are an amazing person too!
