  • I'm not sure if you can find a guy to jazz up (no pun intended) your wedding or party any more than this guy right here. To this day (3 months after our wedding), I am still getting compliments about the small details of our wedding, but the most popular compliment I've received has been about our saxophone player, Tyler. He blew our crowd away with his talent during both our cocktail hour and then again during the reception. We hired a friend who DJ'd along side Tyler and their chemistry was seamless which made it very easy. He was great communicating with us the whole time, making sure he was on the same page with which vibe we wanted throughout certain parts of the night. He played everything from old school to new school and even ended with a song we requested him to learn days leading up to the event. This guy is beyond talented and we will forever be grateful that we found him and hired him for our big day. He truly made it one to remember.

  • Tyler was definitely a highlight to our wedding. He made the experience unforgettable playing songs we all love! He was able to customize our first dance song with the addition of his sax and made the song all the more better. He kept the party going and got people on their feet. It was such a joy to see our guests, young and old, enjoy live music. Tyler is very easy to work with, professional and highly recommended. Thank you again Tyler!

  • Hi, groom here, just got back from my honeymoon after our wedding a month ago. My wife and I still can’t stop talking about how much we love Tyler, and neither can our guests. We feel so lucky that he was available for our special day, I can’t imagine it feeling more special or hiring anyone else for any event I ever do. He is an incredible musician who is doing something he loves so his passion can be his work— you can really tell that he loves every moment. Tyler played saxophone during the cocktail hour and some of the important dances and piano for the aisle walks and the father-daughter dance, as well as DJing the party portion. If that wasn’t amazing enough, he would occasionally whip out the saxophone during the party, song permitting, and played along with the song on the dance floor. Absolutely breathtaking and just so cool! I’m originally from Israel and sent a song to Tyler that is from my country and is about 30 years old, and told him that I’m not e... Read more

  • I can’t rave about Tyler enough! He was totally the hit of our wedding! From the beginning, Tyler was very professional and personable. You can tell he loves what he does and put 150% effort into making our day perfect! He even learned a few new songs just to fit with our song selection. We had so many people complimenting us about our “sax man,” even the catering staff! Tyler truly went above and beyond to make sure we, and our guests, had an amazing night. I cannot recommend Tyler more. We’ve already had 2 guests ask us for his contact info for an upcoming wedding and even a holiday party! Tyler, thank you so much for making our wedding day just perfect!

  • We highly recommend having an element of live music at your wedding and Tyler is the perfect guy for the job. Tyler let us be as involved as we wanted to be and was able to pick up our vibe and improvise on a set list that fit our style. Everybody loved him at the wedding and had nothing but nice things to say. We even had multiple guests ask for his information to hire him for future events. He was very involved with phone calls and was accountable on the day of our wedding. We didn't have to tell him much, he automatically knew where to go and what to do and so forth. During our wedding ceremony, there was such a level of depth that was brought and the guests had so much fun and were very entertained. Thank you so much Tyler for the amazing energy you brought to our wedding and for making it such an unforgettable day

  • Tyler was so amazing! He was my first vendor that I booked and he was my favorite! Tyler played the saxophone for our ceremony, cocktail hour AND did multiple sax-solos throughout the reception. He was a huge hit for all of our guests! We are still getting compliments on how much people loved him. He has a wide variety of songs to choose from on his song list AND he even customized our first dance song. I would seriously recommend him to ANYONE looking for live entertainment.

  • We first saw and heard Tyler at a Bridal Show in Anaheim. He stopped us in our tracks. He played during the fashion show and brought my new daughter-in-law to tears. I contacted him and easily arranged for him to play at their wedding in San Diego. He was punctual,professional and personable. We all love him and can’t wait to use him again soon.

  • Tyler really made our wedding more fun and special. So many guests commented on how great he was. His performances were top notch. From a behind the scenes perspective, Tyler was able to go with the flow and make little changes on the fly to keep the atmosphere alive and energetic. Put those two things together and you can't go wrong, plus he was professional and on top of things throughout the entire process.

  • My husband and I got married about 10 days ago. Tyler played saxophone before the ceremony, during the ceremony, cocktail hour and some songs during the dinner as well. He is really the BEST! In so many ways... First of all, he is really accommodating. Since day one, he made sure to understand what we want and also he delivered EXACTLY WHAT WE DISCUSSED!! Thanks to him, our wedding was really magical, romantic but also so much fun! After the wedding, every single person told us how great was the music and they really liked Tyler. The music was great, he was great, his help was great and overall working with him and getting to know him was great! Thank you so much, Tyler for making our wedding magical!! It absolutely wouldn't be the same without you!!
