He was professional, talented, thorough, and he definitely knows his stuff. I had several people come up to me during the wedding and say that they really enjoyed him. I could not agree more! He was very easy to reach during the planning process and everything went off without a hitch. I highly, highly recommend his business!"

I hired Steven to play violin (along with a pianist) during the ceremony & cocktails, strolling violin during dinner, and DJ/MC for the reception. Can't say enough good things about our experience. The music was absolutely amazing, and Steven is a great speaker/MC. We had lots of guests in from out of town, and one of them even mentioned that he would hire Steven to fly to his home state for a party- that's how impressive he was!! I don't think the dance floor was empty all night- GREAT job!!!"
