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!
