Perfect, professional and an amazing performer

Andy performed during the cocktail hour at our wedding at Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford, California. Andy was the perfect addition to our special day and performed absolutely beautifully. It was a beautiful scene and having him playing both the ukulele and guitar, and singing, was absolutely amazing. Andy was great to deal with while planning our day and we knew we wanted to book him when we saw his videos and heard his great voice. We also had Andy play and sing our first dance song (Can't help falling in love) on the ukulele. It was the best moment and was so unique for our intimate wedding of 50 people. We received so many compliments about Andy from our guests. I would definitely book him again for a special occasion!

Awesome

Andy replied immediately to our request. He was friendly, polite and very easy to work with. He did a fantastic job at my husbands 40th birthday. Everybody raved about him and really enjoyed his music. He tailored his playlist to our tastes and even let my husband join him for an impromptu song! I would highly recommend him for an event and we would rehire him in a minute.

He is very good at answering questions and getting back to you promptly. Not only does he have a large list of wedding music he is familiar with, he also learned some new songs per our request. Very talented and highly recommended!

Perfect for our wedding

Andy played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and our guests absolutely loved him. He was easy to work with and very accommodating. Here are some highlights:

- Andy learned over a half-dozen new songs for our ceremony on relatively short notice, and executed them flawlessly at the wedding.

- At our (relatively late) request, Andy found two other outstanding musicians to play with him during the ceremony and reception. (We added a cellist for the ceremony and a percussionist during the cocktail hour, for anyone wondering.)

I would strongly recommend Andy for any event. With his professionalism and musical range, he would be a great addition to almost any wedding or party.

Andy is wonderful!!

Andy has a magnificent, mellow, rich sounding voice and is an outstanding guitarist. He was professional at all times, punctual and willing to accommodate our needs. On a picture-perfect day, he played "Into the Mystic" as I walked down the aisle at the Bekeley Botanical Gardens. The beauty of his voice and the surroundings took my breath away. it was all that we wanted and more. Hire Andy for your event. You will be highly highly satisfied with him!!!!

A wedding highlight!

Andy Kong was a true highlight for our ceremony and cocktail hour at our wedding! My husband and I attended a wedding last year that he preformed at and we booked him right after! His voice is smooth and regal sounding; it pairs so beautifully with his guitar. It's been a month since our wedding, and guests are still mentioning how much they enjoyed Andy at the wedding. He is easy to arrange your requests, informative and upfront! This bride was very very pleased with him! 5 stars for Andy!

A true professional

Andy performed at our big company "gala" and did an excellent job. With very short notice and little detail, Andy stepped in to perform at our two big events of the year. His performace was one of the highlights of the night. From the moment I contacted Andy, he was a true professional and super friendly and easy to work with. I recommend Andy to anyone!

Hire Andy! He's great!

Just hired Andy for a school fundraiser, and he was excellent. Needed some cocktail music and he was perfect, amazing voice, good mix of originals and covers & we got lots of compliments on him. He's super easy to work with, professional, on time, and easy to have at a party. I will definitely hire him again. You won't be disappointed, give him a try!

Everything we wanted and more!!

For our intimate wedding we wanted the personalization of having an acoustic wedding march and a coffee shop feel cocktail hour. We booked Andy after listening to his sound. We were sold!! The specific song we wanted to walk down the aisle to was played perfectly! I received several samples of him playing the song before the big day and his professional demeanor did not go unnoticed. Three months later I am still getting compliments on our wedding day and the personal feel that Andy's music added to our day. I couldn't have asked for a better musician.

Everyone enjoyed his music and style

Andy was a pleasant treat for our wine club members. One of our members bought him a $30 bottle of wine as a tip and he sold many CD's that night, too. So, it is not just my opinion that he was a big hit here. The winery owners also repeatedly expressed their enjoyment of his style and repertoire. Andy turned out to be the center of attention, not just a background musician, because his performance was of such a high quality.

I will certainly try to find a reason to book him in the future and highly recommend him to anyone who enjoys his music.

Amazing!

Andy played for my brother-in-law's wedding this past weekend, and I am so thrilled at the number of compliments we've received over the last few days on how wonderful his performance was. He played for about 2 hours during cocktail hour and entertained over 250 guests. Guests raved about his unique sound, and his ability to accept requests. I was the one who booked Andy, and it couldn't have been easier. He was responsive, professional, and personable all at the same time. His personality is so familiar--it felt like we were old friends from the beginning. I can't wait to hear and see Andy's career take off. He truly has a fan in me!

Hire this Very Talented Young Man !! YAY !!

In the year 2011, I was introduced to the Beautiful Musical World of Singer/Songwriter ( and amazing talent ) Andy Kong. The Divine must have wanted to give my life something so special as that it cannot be described adequately, that is all I can figure...as Andy Kong brought to me a special magic, distinct poetic lyrics and memorable tunes. Andy brings this special magic everywhere, not to exclude even the times when he is just walking around smiling, talking to people. Andy is SPECIAL. Andy's original music is SPECIAL/DEEP/HEALING/FUN. Andy's cover tunes are also SPECIAL. ( Really. I think Andy could take any sheet music and give it his own spin. ) Andy is sooooo Amazing that when I know he is performing somewhere within driving distance of me and I cannot go, I feel sick.... Around November of 2011, I saw Andy three places: Sacramento, Tacoma and Seattle. These crowds were thrilled with Andy !! Andy has sooooo much potential... As for myself, I like to support potential, originality and creativity. My Hope is that you support these things too and hire this young man for your Event. Godspeed.

Ideal cabaret style musician & vocalist.

I hosted a small wedding for my nephew at my home, and I wanted easy listening & romantic background music [with & without lyrics sung], before, during, and after the ceremony. Andy played traditional standards [several at my request] and some original songs; the effect was soothing and uplifting. You need to indicate your musical preferences, and hear & see him perform; he exceeded my expectations and my nephew & bride and all my guests loved his music. He can play the piano/keyboard, guitar, saxophone, and ukulele.
