Arrived early - Very professional. Would highly recommend.
We hired Alex to perform at my husband's birthday party, and his group was very professional and easy to work with. He is very communicative and made sure that all of our needs and requests were met. He is a phenomenal performer and his piano player was amazing as well. I could not recommend Alex more!
