Ash was very professional and has a great sound. He came early to setup and check out equipment. I gave him a long list of possible songs and I thinks he knew or learn the majority before the event. He was also very flexible and interpreted with the party vibe and programming . Very satisfied and would recommend to hire Ash at your next event or private party.. very cool
I would highly recommend Ash St. John for any of your events. He was flexible, professional, easy going and a great musician. He tailored his time to fit the unique needs of our event and was enjoyed by everyone that attended.
