"We were married on a Friday evening in Deerfield Beach Florida, however we live in North Carolina. Planning a destination wedding was very stressful. Ed responded to my emails quickly, set up phone dates where he played music samples, and answered all my questions. As a bonus he came with a PA system so all our guests could hear us on the beach. His set up was beautiful and so was his music. We received many complements on our ceremony music. I would highly recommend Ed to anyone looking for a professional and talented musician."
Maeghan and Tony (wedding ceremony)


"Ed Horowitz is the ultimate professional! Every request we had, he fulfilled with enthusiasm and a smile. Every guest at our event award gave positive feedback about the entertainment, and many expressed interest on using him for one of their own events. He is wonderful to work with plus he supplied us with a beautiful PA system. I have hired Ed I'm the past and will do so again.
Heidi Richards Mooney (awards banquet)


"Ed is absolutely fabulous!! And not only does he play one instrument, he plays three! Ed met with me three times to go over the music for the ceremony; and was very flexible about time and place. There is such a passion in Ed's music that you know he enjoys what he does so much. Thank you so much Ed! You truly added such a unique and personal element to my wedding. I couldn't imagine my wedding without you! I would highly recommend Ed to anyone who is looking for a musician for any occasion."
Danielle and Jason (wedding ceremony / cocktail hour)

"We can't begin to express our gratitude to Ed for the beautiful music and ambiance he provided for our wedding! When we hired Ed, we didn't know we were also getting an experienced ceremony coordinator. He helped us plan out the processional and recessional with coordinating music so that everything flowed perfectly. Thank you, Ed for everything you did for us."

I would give Ed a 6th star if I could. Planning a wedding can be stressful; if you'd like the music to be one aspect where you don't have to worry- then hire Ed. We hired Ed to play the ceremony and cocktail hour at our wedding. He honestly could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I feel like he truly loves to play weddings. Ed helped us select a beautiful program and develop the entire wedding processional. He played all the songs for us ahead of time, all on various instruments, so we could make informed choices for the big day. He was detail oriented, responsible, punctual, and gracious. Do yourself a favor and hire him.

I hired musician Ed Horowitz to create a special atmosphere for my Dad's 90th birthday celebration. That he did, exceeding my expectations! It was an intimate family party of 22, held in a restaurant. Ed was spectacular! He was a very professional, talented, gentlemen who entertained us magnificently with his beautiful instruments, violin, mandolin, acoustic guitar and ukulele. Ed is a gifted musician with a broad repetoire, playing for all age groups. He had many of us up and dancing! Soft spoken and unassuming yet engaging, Ed helped to create a structure for our party, a pleasure to work with. All felt he made the party! I highly reccommend Ed. Thank you Ed!
