Mr. Kinney officiated our wedding on Sept. 10, 2017. Prior to the ceremony he met with us, and provided us with indept advice/counseling and information on the services he provided. On the day of, he was on time, patience, professional, poised, humerous and wise beyond his years. He guided my husband through his nervessness and was just easy to talk to and well received by our guest. We are over joyed by our choice and would recommend him a thousand times over!!
Loved him and his family. His music and comedic talent was on target. Will certainly request him again for other church activities.
Demoine is an outstanding performer and entertainer. He has a way with the crowd in such a pleasant way. There were so many laughs and applause for this great talent! Will definitely hire again.
Demoine's comedy performance during my family reunion was awesome and unforgettable. He immediately gauged the crowd and followed with just the right jokes for all ages and it was absolutely hilarious. In addition to the comedy show, he spoke godly words to inspire any family and ended the show with beautiful music from his saxophone. My family looks forward to having him at our next event!
Showed on time, professional and fun. Also, a great saxophone player. My family gives you two snaps and a circle.

After dealing with 3 comedians who were either unprofessional, reneged on our verbal agreement, or failed to communicate as we planned to have them at our event, I had the pleasure of having Demoine Kinney for our Gala this past weekend. He was laugh out loud, crack your side, hurt your stomach from laughing so hard FUNNY! My group really enjoyed him. He was professional, related his material to our group and ended with us wanting more. We will be using him again. Thank you for a job well done!
