If you are planning a wedding, one of the most important considerations is the music.
A few quick questions:
• Have you ever attended a wedding or party where the music flows perfectly without drawing attention to itself?
• Does it make any difference if your DJ is a musician?
• Have you been searching for a low-key DJ that specializes in music?
So, you’re planning a wedding and you want a DJ that can rock the party and keep the mic to a minimum. And the peace of mind knowing your reception is in good hands…
A Musician’s touch.
A DJ that is also a professional pianist offers the best of both worlds: a musician’s ear for smooth transitions and volume levels–with a DJ’s knowledge of music, expertise at reading the crowd and ability to help direct the flow. And, if you like the idea of live romantic piano music for your ceremony or cocktail hour, then you can take care of all of your entertainment in one stop.
Discovering your music preferences and vision, Andrew helps you create the perfect playlists featuring as many of your favorite songs as you like. The online client planning system let’s you search the music database and add requests anytime–as well as organize all the details of your wedding–with personal help from Andrew along the way.
And if you or your guests have requests during the event they can easily be mixed in, Andrew reads the crowd and adjusts the music accordingly.
Live Music for Ceremonies and Cocktail Hours
Andrew has played the piano professionally for more than 20 years and can provide beautiful piano music for your ceremony: from traditional favorites such as Pachelbel’s Canon and Bach’s Air on the G String to more modern choices with Andrew’s elegant interpretations. For cocktail hours, consider the classic sounds of live solo jazz piano and Ragtime–the perfect transition before moving on to the main reception.
Andrew is fully insured and has backup systems at every event so you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your celebration is in good hands. And for those who appreciate quality sound, Andrew utilizes the latest DJ technology with high-end sound systems that can really rock your party.
From the moment you start planning till the last dance, Andrew is responsive to your needs, tastes and desires. His attention to detail and personal guidance will help you create a custom-tailored celebration, so you can relax and enjoy the party of your life!

The wedding was everything we could have possibly hoped for! We had such a blast!
We just wanted to drop you a quick note and say that we really appreciated your hard work – and staying super late. The music was awesome! We have never danced so hard and long in our lives. As one friend told us the next day, “I kept trying to go sit down and rest but then he put on another perfect song and I just couldn’t physically leave the dance floor!”.
We couldn’t have pulled off such an awesome reception or ceremony without you. Everything was perfect, from the Amelie piece through to us doing the can-can at 1am to New York, New York.
Once we decompress a bit, we’d love to write you a formal testimonial.
Thank you!! You absolutely crushed it man.

Andrew is awesome! We had two distinct parts to our wedding – the outdoor cocktail party and ceremony then the reception upstairs in the barn at the Millbrook Winery. Andrew provided music for both – he played the grand piano for the ceremony and the cocktail hour and then DJ’d for the reception. I can’t explain enough how perfect all the selections, timing and overall execution was. Our music tastes are so all over the place that I felt bad even trying to explain to him and have it make sense. He was able to put into words, or music should I say, our intentions exactly as we’d hoped. He read the crowd, kept the party alive when we were up dancing, accompanied the cocktail hour with perfect mood-setting selections, and the perfect build up during the ceremony. Can’t wait to book him for another event – he “gets” it!

From the moment I met with Andrew until the end of the event he met all of my expectations. He went out of his way to make sure he could meet all my song requests and any of those requested by my guests. Andrew was gracious, easy to work with, and accommodating in every way. I only wish I had hired him to do my daughters weddings rather than incur the huge expense of hiring a band. Bottom line HIRE HIM.

Andrew was absolutely terrific! I had so many people at the wedding tell me how wonderful the music was. Everyone, young and old was up dancing the entire reception. He seamlessly mixed all the songs I had requested with requests from guests and made it such an amazing day. He even handled a power outage caused by the caterer with ease. He was a constant presence without being overbearing, which is exactly what we had asked of him. Also he was such a nice guy to work with, so accomodating to changes we made last minute. I honestly can’t say enough nice things about Andrew and would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone planning a special event.
–Martin & Eric
Andrew was wonderful to work with. He promptly replied to all of our questions and concerns prior to the wedding and took all of our ideas into consideration. He even edited our first dance song and went through a very long list of requests…Andrew helped set the tone for the entire evening, he worked closely with us on creating the perfect playlists for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. He was flexible throughout the evening and played requests from the wedding party and guests. He kept everyone dancing throughout the evening and people raved about the music that was played. We were incredibly happy and would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.

Andrew is probably the nicest guy i have ever met! He took requests and even played some salsa (a request) at the very end. People were dancing – and all was good! His website allowed me to browse through thousands of songs and he even had a “most requested play list” that had exactly the kind of music for the party. I am confident that people left with a very good impression and that andrew will be deejaying very soon for some friends. Bravo!
Andrew provided cocktail and dance music for our daughter’s wedding. He was a true professional and was dependable and thorough. His web site is easy to navigate and he made it easy for us to pick the songs we wanted. Everybody danced and had a great time!
Andrew provided a really good mix of music to suit the tastes of everyone in attendance at our function, regardless of age. The vibe of the music brought everyone to the dance floor. I would highly recommend Andrew. Best private DJ I have ever worked with, very professional. Will be hiring Andrew in the future for additional functions.
Andrew is definitely my DJ for any future events. I must have canvased about a dozen DJ’s and Andrew was the most professional, prompt, and polite out of all of them. I was also more than pleased with his on-line request system. His fees are more than reasonable for the services provided and he was a hit with the guests. Not only was he a master at his profession, but he enjoyed learning about new music from party goers who were from other countries and cultures. His ability to diversify and adapt to the changing mood of the crowd makes him a must hire for your event.
Andrew is a very professional and organized DJ. He always answered all questions via email or phone call within the hour they were asked! He also goes out of his way to get special request music available for your event. It is not always easy to find a suitable DJ for an event, being that this type of service relies heavily on word-of-mouth referrals. I hired Andrew for my wedding, and am very happy with his level of professionalism. He was a pleasure to work with, and I felt confident with choosing him every step of the way.
Thank you, Andrew!

Testimonials from Wedding Wire:
We asked Andrew to DJ late-night at our Sep 2011 wedding. On very short notice, he was responsive, easy to work with, and did an amazing job. Has a great feel for the crowd and kept us all dancing. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others or use him again!
Andrew dj’ed our wedding at Hunter Mountain this past Saturday and he was the best. He really caught our “vibe” and we had only spoken to him once over the phone. We loved his web-based song request & planning system because it made it easy to add songs requests as we thought of them. We were really happy that instead of playing the same tired music you hear at every wedding, Andrew played more interesting and diverse music, from jazz and Frank Sinatra during the cocktail hour, to more “dance-y” music later in the night. I would recommend Andrew to anyone that has more sophisticated musical tastes, and wants to have a distinctive and memorable wedding soundtrack then you would hear from the Jersey Shore type DJ’s that you normally hear.
