"If there's a better sax player than Dennis Marcellino in the world, I haven't heard him!"
Carter Knox, Entertainment Director for the Fred Meyer Corporation
AT A.D. ENTERTAINMENT, WE CARE!
My primary focus at your event is that you and your guests have a great time. I do this by being very in-tune with the music and volume desires that you initially request (on my "Pre-Event Checklist", which you fill out well in advance of the event), and then by staying sensitive to you and your guests as these change throughout the event. "Having averaged over 100 wedding receptions and parties per year for most of the last 27 years, I know what it takes to fill a dance floor, keep it full, appropriately change the mood, and make sure that all announcements go smoothly and are dynamic." Dennis
