"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."

"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."
