Prior to the wedding and on the day of, he was very helpful in guiding us through the whole process, and was constantly reassuring and on top of things.

Maria Baena Clarke/Baena Wedding "Having Gene Cannon in our wedding was a complete and utter treat. Not only did his presence provided a touch of elegance through his live music, but his demeanor and willingness to please our every need and wants made him extremely pleasant to having him play in our wedding. Gene, you are the best!"
Devon and Jaclyn Johnson Johnson/Hughes Wedding "What can we say....you made our wedding night one we will never forget. Our guest had so much fun and were even willing to pay for an extra hour! They didn't want the party to end! It was amazing to have a sax player, singer, guitar player, and a DJ all included in one price! It was not easy for us to find one person who was as talented and easy/enjoyable to work with as you Gene. We want to thank you for making our wedding night one we will NEVER forget. Anybody who needs an artist for their event we will not hesistate to pass your name along. Thanks!!! Devon and Jaclyn P.S. Expect a call from us to play at our 10 year vowel renewals!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :))"

Celeste Sanchez/ Birthday Party "Just want to thank you again for everything that you did to make my husband's 50th party such a beautiful and memorable event not only for him, but for all of our guests. Entertaining 100 people of such diverse backgrounds and ages isn't an easy thing to do, but you kept everybody going all night. Planning the party was so easy to do with you. You listened to my needs, my music wants and asked all of the right questions about how the sequence of the party would go. You are such a professional! I can't tell you how many calls I have had raving about you, your incredible musical talents and how wonderful you were. Everyone was blown away by your incredible sax playing!! I can't thank you enough for creating this beautiful memory for us. We feel so blessed to know you and have you as a part of our lives. You will definitely be hearing from us again for all of our parties from now on! Thanks Gene, from the bottom of our hearts! You are the BEST!!!!"

Kristin Jones I Executive Meeting Manager I Embassy Suites - Tampa USF Good afternoon, Gene! I hope the rest of your weekend went well! I just want to touch base and say thank you for everything involving Danielle and Caleb's wedding! You are a true professional who is a joy to work with! If you ever need me as a reference, I would be honored. You stand apart from the DJ's in your industry because of your unique offerings and intuitiveness about the clientele. I have never seen a dance floor so packed with such a mixed crowd. You seriously hit the nail on the head!
P. S. The fact that you called the Bride the day of her rehearsal just to assure her that everything was set on your end spoke volumes of your thoughtfulness! Danielle was super impressed! Thanks again for everything!

Gene is a great entertainer, professional and gentlemen. He played all the music our Mom loves (She turned 90) and fun dance music to keep the party moving. He took the time to introduce himself to her, tell her happy birthday and ask for any special request. We had numerous compliments from guest and some asked for his # for their events. Even our family members who are in the entertainment business were impressed! Thanks to Gene the party was a big hit for all.
