“Having Andrew entertain in our home has been our best party decision ever! Andrew adapts to your group quickly, using his vast repertoire to play the
music they already love, and new music they’ll like right away. He keeps your friends clapping, singing, and dancing along, regardless of age or taste in music.”
- Jane, party host
A wedding has many parts - all of which are better with music!
- Ceremonies (sacred or secular)
- Cocktail Hours
- Receptions (dinner and/or dancing portions)
- “After-Party” Entertainment
The planning process will begin with a complimentary consultation to determine your musical needs. Whether you already have specific music in mind, or need suggestions and guidance in determining what style or selections best suit your event, Andrew’s extensive wedding experience means you don’t have to do all the work. Rates vary based on the specifics of your event.
"We are amazed by Andrew’s versatility, talent, and character, and have never seen anyone put together such a potent mixture of refinement and wild fun. You helped us create a wedding that will live in infamy!”
- Gary & Shelley, newlyweds
Whatever the occasion, the element of live music adds a spark to any party, and available services range from classical dinner music to a sing-along birthday bash. Andrew’s specialty is “reading the room” and playing just what a party needs—whether it’s keeping things calm, or livening things up! A playlist may be determined in advance or requests may be taken on-site, and Andrew is happy to arrange tributes, dedications or some good-humored
participation for any special guests of honor.
"Andrew brings so much talent and joy to those around him. I really would call off my annual Christmas party if he wasn't there. If anyone wants to take the worry out of a party, wedding, or any occasion where music should be the most important part, then Andrew Blendermann is your man.”
-Gloria, repeat client
Do you love the tradition of processing down the aisle to “Here Comes The Bride”… but also dream of entering to the song playing when you first met? Why not do both?
Let Andrew create a personalized arrangement just for you—blend a movie theme into a classic, an old standard with a new favorite, or a meaningful memory with a humorous twist. All you need is the idea, and let Andrew design and play a never-before-heard “mash-up” inspired by you. Or surprise a loved one with a completely original, one-of-a-kind gift!
Custom Arrangement service includes a keepsake copy of the sheet music and a CD recording of your original song.
