As a solo performer, Andy is in high demand, and it is no wonder.
Can you imagine your guests enjoying the sultry sounds of a roving saxophonist as they mingle outside for pre-dinner drinks? Or how about the classical elegance and emotion of a flute or oboe solo as you walk down the aisle? Or what about having your own little "Michael Buble" entertaining your corporate guests and clients in style? And let's not forget about the all-time classic hits that you'll need when it's time to dance the night away!
Many people fall into the trap of hiring a string quartet for a wedding ceremony, a roving artist for pre-dinner drinks, and then a costly four or five piece band for the reception. Take a step back and consider how much time, effort and expense you would save by simply booking Andy to do the job of all three entertainment options.
Andy is putting a whole new "spin" on being a DJ...
So often, clients have difficulty in making the choice between live music and a DJ. Now the choice is easy! You can have both.
