We hired Tyler for my sister's birthday party. He was extremely professional throughout the entire process... from the first time we contacted him to the end of the actual event. He responded immediately to any of my queries via text or email. The contract and payment process was very straightforward and easy. The set up was a breeze because he provides everything. He encouraged us to be involved in choosing the music and asked for direction on our desired "mood" for the party. He was very keen on making our evening exactly how we envisioned it!! He showed up on time. He wore a suit which added a touch of class. Most importantly, his sax playing was simply beautiful. We are music lovers and some of our children are professional musicians so I think we are pretty good judges when it comes to musical ability. Tyler was top notch!! Thanks to Tyler, our night turned out exactly how we envisioned it!! Only thing disappointing was that I had to be a host. I would have preferred to just sit and listen!!
Thank you, thank you Tyler! Hope to be able to hire you again sometime soon.
From the planning to the big day, Tyler exceeded all of our expectations. He made sure my vision was carried out and offered his professional input that really brought everything together. Our wedding was so special because of Tyler's beautiful music! One memory I will forever hold in my heart is walking down the aisle with my father to Tyler playing "Here Comes the Bride." Almost losing my father the year before made that walk that much more special.
All of our family and friends could not stop raving to us about how CLASSY and UNIQUE it was to have a sax player. We were all impressed by his wide variety of song selections from Modern to Jazz to Latin music. I could go on and on about how incredible Tyler is. It was such an honor to have you be a part of our special day - THANK YOU for being dependable, charming, entertaining and so memorable! We will keep in touch for when our anniversary comes around (:
I am not over exaggerating when I say Tyler is my wedding day Super Hero. I had booked a sax player months ago on a different website as a surprise for my soon to be husband for the wedding. All of the sudden my original saxophone player bailed on me 1.5 week before the wedding and I was devastated! I scrambled to find a sax player last minute who could play the songs that I wanted with high energy and passion.
From the initial message to meeting up to the final performance Tyler was professional, enthusiastic, and gave it 110%. My guest and my husband were blown away at the wedding, so many people talked about how awesome the sax player was and it was definitely a highlight of the wedding.
Tyler was very easy to communicate with. Within a few days of the initial meeting Tyler had put together a sample of the songs I asked him to play, and they already sounded amazing! The few days after I could tell he committed to his practices because when the wedding came around, Tyler was confident, poised, and ready to entertain the guests.
THANK YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN TYLER for saving me by being my sax guy for the wedding. I hope you had a blast like we did :)
Amazing experience! Tyler really set a different mood with his sax! A lot of friends and family came up saying how awesome he sounded! Would GREATLY recommend him! Very professional!
It was a pleasure working with Tyler. He is extremely professional, has a great set up that is clean and organized, and is extremely talented. His repertoire of music is incredible, he can play a wide variety of hits that guests love to hear. I look forward to working with him again.
Tyler saved the day at my daughter's wedding by showing up early and prepared for a thirsty post ceremony crowd. He was an amazing professional that kept the crowd in awe. Of course we ordered the perfect bride and groom, perfect sunset, and perfect venue (the Balboa Bay Resort). He even serenaded the happy couple alone on the beach for a fantastic first dance...all the ladies were in love...
Tyler, is always remarkable with his Saxophone melodies. Residents always look forward to his next performance. Thank You Tyler!
Tyler is an extremely talented saxophone player. He is professional and plays a wide range of tunes. Couldn't have asked for a better ambiance set by Tyler for our engagement party.
We hired Tyler to play a 180 person cocktail party and dinner at Pelican Hill for a corporate event. He was so good that the crowd wouldn't let him stop so we ended up hiring him for an additional hour! We wanted him to play more pop music versus more traditional jazz as we wanted an upbeat performance. He did an awesome job with his playlist.
He worked the crowd by walking through the tables and playing, he played all types of songs and had people up dancing. No one wanted to leave! He received more than 1 standing ovation.
Received tons of feedback following the event from the attendees that it was their favorite part of the 3 day event.
Tyler was amazing, very professional and everyone at the party enjoyed his music. I will recommend Tyler for future events.
Tyler was Amazing!! He made our Wedding absolutely PERFECT. I would highly recommend him.
Tyler was a perfect addition to our wedding! It was an absolute pleasure working with him when it came to picking our song selection and just having that open communication with him. His passion AND professionalism not only shined, but set our wedding day jitters at ease. He is truly blessed with an amazing talent! Our friends and family enjoyed him so much! Again we want to THANK YOU for going above and beyond for our wedding on 11/11/17. Anthony & Amanda
We hired Mr. Varnell for our wedding and could not have been happier with his performance! Not only a true musical talent, but an honest professional who can walk you through the "in's and out's" with ease on an already hectic day.
I was so happy we did not hire a tacky DJ or the same old organ/piano player for our wedding...but instead brought the elegance and uniqueness of the saxophone. We received so many compliments from our guests. Would most definitely hire him again!
Tyler was a special part of our ceremony and set the tone for our Napa nuptials! We received many compliments on his performance and there were many guests shedding a tear when he played Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" when I walked down the aisle...I even had a guest book him to play at her wedding the following month! Tyler was a consummate professional and really spent time assessing who we were as a couple and the kind of ceremony and reception we wanted! I would recommend him to all of my friends and family and was the best vendor we hired for our wedding! Thank you Tyler for all of your hard work and wonderful music!
Simply put, Tyler is amazing. I asked Tyler to play "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for a dance with my grandpa at my wedding. Tyler captured everything that is special in that song-- he arranged it beautifully, his delivery was flawless, and he put so much heart into every note. Tyler took the time to ask questions and understand exactly what I wanted; he was thoughtful and caring. What I received was an invaluable, perfect moment with my grandpa that I will never forget. I am so grateful.
You would be remiss not to consider Tyler for your event. Whatever you want, he will deliver!
