Arnie has a wonderfully varied repertoire of music for all ages and occasions that makes him easily adaptable to most any event. Arnie also has a talent for mingling with your guests to involve them, and designing his music selections to capture the theme and mood of your special event.

Whether your wedding takes place in an outdoor garden setting or in the grandest of churches or temples, Arnie will perform the perfect wedding ceremony music to set the mood and cocktail hour music to exhilarate your guests. Cocktail hours, engagement parties, bridal and baby showers, rehearsal dinners, dinner receptions and holiday parties are his specialties. Free consultation is always available for personalizing the music for your ceremony or function.

Arnie can use your piano or provide his professional keyboard and sound system for small, intimate gatherings, or larger venues. He also works with some of the most talented vocalists, specializing in songs from Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, & those great performers & song writers of the 40's, 50's & 60's, to Linda Ronstadt, Anita Baker, Elton John, Billy Joel, Harry Connick, Jr., and the great American Songbook.

Arnie performs many of the most popular tunes of the 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's & 70's, 80's, 90's, and current ones, including those of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Barbra Streisand, Nat King Cole, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Big Band tunes, as well as more contemporary artists like Michael Feinstein, Harry Connick, Jr., Billy Joel (he played in a Billy Joel cover band), Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, Daniel Powter, Josh Groban, Anna Nalick, and much, much more.

Arnie can also learn songs if you have special ones in mind for your event.

If you or your guests would like to request music, that's also fantastic, since Arnie really enjoys playing requests. Although Arnie's website has a short list of about 100+ popular songs that people frequently request from, Arnie knows over 600 songs by memory (no sheet music), and is happy to play any of them for you and your guests.

Arnie was magnificent. His music skills--singing, playing--were exemplary. He has a magnetic personality that pleased everyone. Everyone at the party loved his performance and many asked for his card. He helped make our 50th a memorable event. Dr. and Mrs. Allan Wolk

We received nothing but accolades from our guests at our wedding regarding Arnie's playing. He was easy to work with, communicated well prior to and during the event and as a musician myself, I can only give the highest grade to Arnie. He played excactly the right type of music for the occcassion. Would recommend him to anyone and use him again in a split second. You won't be dissapointed.

Arnie was fabulous and really made the party great. All of our guests were impressed with him, and he couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating to us. He even went around to the tables and asked for song requests from our guests, so he made sure that there was something played for everyone. The music was continuous and really kept the party going. It was perfect for the event and everyone loved it. His professionalism was wonderful and he is very talented. We were so happy we had him at our event and we feel lucky to have found him!
