Pierre & Company have earned a reputation for bringing heart and soul to every single event. They have mastered the art of moving an audience – whether by Pierre's amazing Sax prowess, or by creating the perfect musical interlude to mellow the mood, or even by the electricity experienced when virtuosic musicians unleash on a crowd of people who want nothing more than to dance all night. With more than half a century of combined playing experience, the band is made up of the finest musicians in the country. Individually, each member holds his own as a trained musician in his own right. These are true artists, players who have backed some of the biggest acts in the world.
Pierre was amazing and worth every penny. He was funny, personable, and engaged with our guests. He became the host, so I was able to enjoy myself thoroughly. Everyone had a great time
Pierre and Company did a great job serving our young ladies at Pace Center during our summer group sessions. They conducted a Jazz and Anxiety group session. They had testimonials and history of how music relieves anxiety specifically jazz. Our girls had a great time and they were very engaged.
Pierre & Co did my wedding in 2016. They were on time, professional and friendly!
We have hired Pierre Kendrick Jazz Saxophonist for several events. He is always very professional, well prepared and always performs at the level that exceeds our expectation! Thank you Pierre for taking jazz to another level like no other!
Pierre knows how to get a party started! We have used Pierre many times at our events and he is a Resident favorite. Would highly recommend him! He is very interactive with the crowd and plays fun songs to dance to.
I'm not going to go into the details. In short, Pierre wasn't prepared for our event. Songs we requested weren't downloaded, he attempted to stream them. He skipped over our Mother/Daughter dance completely, because things were "going to fast for him". I'm sure he's a great party DJ, but not a wedding DJ. Our wedding planner would ask him to make announcements and he would go a different direction than requested, she just chose to handle things on her own after a few attempts. When I spoke with him about what happened, it was because of this and that, but not because he wasn't prepared. He said he had a plan B, but he should have had a C & D too. Rather disappointed, I had such high hopes.
Response from Pierre & CO.:
Mrs. Cox, I sincerely apologize that you felt that I was not adequately prepared for your special day. I take my work seriously & would never intentionally disappoint a client. Therefore, I thank you for providing me with your feedback. In all professionalism, once my equipment for the outside wedding was hit with an electric surge from the venue, l had to jump to plan B to try to keep things flowing as smooth as possible under the circumstance that was beyond anyone's control. Before the wedding started I had to re-download all of the songs on to another operable device. I notified the wedding planner accordingly that I needed more time to setup due to the power surge & I wholeheartedly apologize that my request was not properly communicated to all parties involved. Unfortunately, I was not provided with a flow sheet of the event as well and without this information, it added more disorder to the flow of the evening.

Pierre & Company have earned a reputation for bringing heart and soul to every single event. They have mastered the art of moving an audience – whether by Pierre's amazing Sax prowess, or by creating the perfect musical interlude to mellow the mood, or even by the electricity experienced when eight virtuosic musicians unleash on a crowd of people who want nothing more than to dance all night.
