Chris Andrews knows what he is doing, and does it well.
Chris presented himself very professionally. Was on time and played a very nice selection of music for the occasion. My husband, my guests and myself, were very please. He serenaded us for the entire event.
I’ll work with Chris again for any other events I may have.
We had a wonderful experience with this saxophone player at our party. I would totally recommend him!
He was playing the entire reception for our civil wedding and the music was Amazing!! My guests were raved and we were very happy with his service. I would recommend him to anyone and without any doubt I'll hire him again.
