Frank R., San Diego, CA. - 5.0 star rating 11/14/2017
We had Sanford play a beautiful Steinway, a wonderful combination, for a Tenth Anniversary Remembrance of our late son, who died at age 19 of brain cancer, Sanford played background as guests toured exhibits related to our son. The ages ranged from youth to our 97 year old neighbor and all raved about the beautiful music. The variety of songs he played without any music was amazing and appreciated by all!
While not every occasion can have a Steinway piano, you can have Sanford Blaze,a skilled pianist who plays a wide variety of songs bringing beautiful music to those in attendance. I am grateful for his presence at our event and highly recommend him.


Josh N., San Diego, CA. - 5.0 star rating 5/15/2017
I'm very happy to have found Sanford. His jazz/classical style was perfect for our private party. He came by himself, set up a very high quality speaker system and everything sounded great! I'll be hiring again and referring him to others. Thanks Sanford!


Adina R., Irvine, CA. - 5.0 star rating 8/11/2017
I can't say enough good things about Sandy Blaze! He played piano for our wedding and he was wonderful!! He's very talented and personable and all my guests loved him. His music really set the tone for the wedding and everyone complimented us on the live music. He can play a variety of styles based on your preferences. I highly recommend hiring Sandy for your next event.

We hired Mr. Blaze to perform at our wedding during cocktail hour and dinner. From the moment we booked him, Mr. Blaze went above and beyond with his professionalism and desire to make our night special. He even took the time to learn Persian songs and played them throughout the night along with his usual repertoire. We received multiple comments from guests and even the venue staff remarking about how talented Sanford is on the piano. He exceeded our expectations in every way, from visiting the venue ahead of time to test out their piano, to wearing a tux for our black tie wedding. We look forward to hiring Mr. Blaze for future events, and highly recommend him!
