Here is his latest review from March 12, 2012 "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. 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!!!! Celeste Sanchez
"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!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :))Devon and Jaclyn Johnson Johnson/Hughes Wedding
