"Tyler was absolutely perfect for our corporate event! He was professional, funny, engaging and great at announcements (especially when speaking to our employees). Everyone thoroughly enjoyed him and loved hearing their song requests. Can’t wait to have him back! Thank you Tyler! One more thing….He is an AMAZING singer and guitar player - both acoustic and electric!"

"The hotel event coordinator asked me for his info because she was so impressed."

Chris Macinkowicz | VFW National Office

"With very little pre-event direction, Tyler read the crowd expertly, picking perfect songs one after another. Ranging from Country to Pop, to Blues and everything in-between, Tyler provided an amazing experience for me and my colleagues. In fact, during our set, the hotel event coordinator asked for his contact information because she was so impressed. I highly recommend him for your next event."
