Quality Sound. Expansive Song List. Pleasing Live Entertainment. A Hard-working & Honest Professional. As an experienced solo artist, Anders brings a friendly and inviting energy to every event, and is capable of captivating his audience while making them feel immediately at home. Whether it be a a special ceremony, a rousing sing-along, or the background ambiance for a party, Anders knows how to play to the mood. His strong guitar playing offers the perfect backdrop for rich, warm vocals that always tell an intriguing story. His musical repertoire is delightfully vast and varied, offering a wonderful balance of songs old and new, fast and slow, and spanning many genres.
Anders did an amazing job for my husband's surprise birthday party. Perfect sound to set the tone! He has a large range of music and even learned our wedding song! All night long people were raving about him and he still comes up in conversation. Super accommodating and extremely professional. We will definitely be working with Anders again!
Anders sang and played guitar for our Christmas party of 34 people. He mixed in popular songs and Christmas songs. After dinner he played while we sang Christmas songs. He graciously allowed some guests to sing while he accompanied them. Anders has an easy-going personality and our guests loved his music. He was really flexible and only took a small break while performing for four hours. I highly recommend Anders for any special event.
When Rich and I first heard Anders play on just his website, we knew we had found someone pretty amazing! We booked him right away for our wedding and we are SO happy we did! After booking, Rich and I went to see Anders play a few times at his local gigs. He was so accommodating and asked us if we wanted him to play anything specifically in preparation for our wedding. In addition to Anders providing hundreds of song choices that he performs, he also offers to learn new songs! He learned the song I walked down the aisle to, and it was beautiful!!
Anders made our wedding day. He provided us with such confidence leading up to our day, and we didn't need to worry about anything the day of. He was a hit at our wedding, from providing acoustic music pre-ceremony, live music for our processional and recessional, live music during cocktail hour and dinner, to then switching over to DJ mode for the rest of the night. All of our guests loved Anders and he made the atmosphere come alive!
Rich and I could not be happier for choosing Anders to be a part of our wedding, and we can not wait until the next event we have to have Anders there!
Thank you Anders!!!
We had a small wedding in New Hope and booked Anders for the whole event. He has an incredible song list and is an amazing musician!! The vocalist was a beautiful accent to our wedding processional. He was extremely professional yet easily approachable. We changed a few of the details (a couple were major changes) and Anders changed the set list and details of the day with a smile on his face. He performed during the ceremony and cocktail hour with vocalist. Then was the DJ for the evening. Our friends and family were so pleased with him and enjoyed the whole night even more because of him. Thank you Anders to getting our new life off to a great start!!!
Everything could not have gone better. Amazing talent!
We had Anders for my Dad's birthday and he was fantastic. Amazing sound, super accommodating and a huge list of songs. We will be sure to use him again!
We got married last night, and when I saw the email from gigsalad asking for a review I seriously couldn't wait:
In a word, Anders was amazing!
From the second the ceremony ended people were commenting on how perfect he was. He clearly read the crowd and used the few requests I had made as inspiration for the entire acoustic set. He learned the songs I asked him to for the ceremony and played them beautifully. I'm not exaggerating when I say everyone was obsessed!
I was somewhat nervous about having him act as dj during the reception because there were not many reviews and no sound or videos posted for us to see. However, my concerns were completely unfounded. Anders continued to play to the crowd and stayed true to all of my requests (even checking with me when a guest requested a song I had put on the no play list). He is truly gifted and thoughtful, and our day could not have been a success without him!
Response from Anders Hyatt Music:
Thank you so much Chelsea!! It was a true honor to be a part of your wedding. Your friends and family were great, and I loved the joyful and fun atmosphere you all created. I wish you and Kris all the best in your new life together!!
My husband and I were looking for a singing guitarist for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We found Anders on gigsalad, and before booking him, he invited us to see him play live. We are so glad we did because we loved what we heard. He played everything that was wanted to hear. He is very easy to work with, he made it easy to communicate with him - and always responded when we had any questions. He was extremely flexible with the music, and was willing to learn new songs that weren't on his song list for our ceremony. So many people complimented his performance at our wedding. We loved working with him and having him play for our special day. If you use him for any of your events you won't be dissapointed. He is extremely professional, and is a very talented artist. We would use him again for an event in the future, and we would highly recommend him to anyone!
Anders was our guitarist for our wedding ceremony and played INCREDIBLY. He sang for every song except for when I walked down the aisle. His vocals are beautiful along with the guitar playing. We received more compliments on Anders than on anything else the entire wedding day. He helped make our ceremony absolutely perfect and we could not be more thankful for having him!
Response from Anders Hyatt Music:
Thank you Jessica! It was a true honor to be a part of your special day. Thank you for everything!
Anders was a great entertainer for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party. Both the 13 year olds and us older folks loved his singing and guitar playing. He had a wide variety of songs, enough to suit everybody's taste. He was easy and fun to work with. He is very professional, relaxed and personable. He was open to our suggestions and flexible with our challenging schedule. He didn't complain when he didn't get his break time because of a party planning snafu! I hope to have him to another event and am already recommending him to people I know.
Response from Anders Hyatt Music:
Thank you Eve! It was a true pleasure to be a part of your daughter's special day.
Anders and Angella played for my wife's 40th and were absolutely a pleasure to work with and everybody at the party loved them. Really made the night special for my wife. Thank you Anders and Angella!
I hired Anders for my wedding ceremony. I contacted him online requesting he play "marry me" as I walked down the aisle. Anders promptly responded with an audio clip of him singing the song for me. He was very professional and easy to work with. I would hire him again in a heart beat!
Anders was fantastic to work with...responsive, understood the objectives of our event, on-time, and required very little to get set-up and playing quickly. Anders is very talented and our attendees loved his singing and music. Greatly added to the success of our event. Got many compliments and would not hesitate to have Anders play again at a future event.
Anders provided processional music for our wedding, learned a song I requested that was played during the ceremony (as a musical interlude) and continued to play background music through the cocktail hour. His voice and guitar playing set the tone for exactly what we hoped for - light and fun. We got so many compliments from our guests, who thought he was a long time friend I had asked to be there. That's how comfortable he seemed and the mood he set. We were thrilled to have had him as part of our wedding day!!
We used Anders for our wedding ceremony + cocktail music. He learned 2 new songs for us. I was nervous that we barely had time to chat before the ceremony, but I needn't have worried - Anders nailed everything anyway! Anders played our processional, plus a ceremony sing-a-long. My sister had planned a surprise song at the end. Anders didn't know this beforehand, but he went right along with it - played just like normal so we didn't suspect, then joined in with the surprise performers! At cocktail hr he even played the recessional song we asked for. I was so happy I got to hear it after all! He went above + beyond. I'm only sorry I didn't get to thank him in person.
What a nite! Anders was fun, energetic and happy to entertain adults and kids! His breaks were kept to a minimum and the energy was awesome all nite long. I would definitely hire him again
We are so thankful for finding Anders. He did exactly what we pictured and was so accomdating and easy to work with. He also sounded amazing!!! We continue to get compliments from our guests and will neve forget how great our first dance sounded performed by him! Absolutly Amazing! -Shana S, Longport, NJ
Anders was a pleasure to work with. He took all my notes and made it all come together the way we wanted. We gave him very little to work with and he did an amazing job with our ceremony, cocktail hour and first dance. The guests gave us many compliments on the music and his voice. We highly recommend him, he made our wedding unique and special.
I hired Anders for my husbands 50th birthday party. He was amazing! He set the tone for the outside event just like I wanted, casual and laid back. He played all our favorites and even accommodated with "Happy Birthday" when the cake came out. Our guests are still talking about how great he was! They kept asking all night, how I knew him and how did we find such a great acoustic guitar player! 5 stars all the way, don't hesitate to book Anders! Can't wait to have him back! -Jennifer S, Media, PA
Absolutely phenomenal. Loved Anders music from the moment I discovered his Blue Moon video on youtube and he absolutely did not disappoint. We had a fairly non-traditional wedding ceremony and requested a Star Trek Deep Space 9 song and another not well known song which not only did Anders learn them but he sounded great- better than we could have hoped. We even had a hiccup in the ceremony (groomsmen did not start walking) and he improvised wonderfully. I was so nervous because of all the logistics with our ceremony but he was perfect. If you book Anders you will not regret it!
