Tyler Varnell is an absolute wedding/ event experience- we couldn't have picked a better vendor to play at our wedding. Not only is he an amazing musician, but he was able to become the star of the show and really rock the dance floor (or in our case, a second story balcony over looking reception). He can set a classy, romantic, vibey tone during cocktail hour and then turn around and play hits next to you on the dance floor during reception. He was even able to learn a few songs that were special to my husband and I to play at our wedding. Our guests were in literal awe at the talent and showmanship of Tyler- have you ever heard a sax play EDM hits?- this guy brought it! If you're not hiring him for your wedding, its a total missed opportunity.
Did I also mention his communication was always prompt, positive, and top notch? What more can a couple ask for?!

Best vendor we ever found

OMG. Where do I even begin?! Tyler is AMAZING and so multi-talented. His piano brings out the emotion during the softer moments in the ceremony. His sax brings the perfect cocktail vibes right after the ceremony. And finally his DJ/MC/surprise sax appearances bring an energy to a wedding that is sooooo fun. You cannot find a better person for this than Tyler.

On top of that, he is so organized, friendly, and responsive. He is such a professional and a great guy all around. Hiring Tyler was the best decision we made for our wedding, and I’m so glad we found him!!!

Best Wedding Dance Party!
We booked Tyler over 2 years ago for our wedding originally planned in 2020, when we had to postpone we made sure to make our new date around Tyler’s schedule as we had to have him play at our wedding. We have been waiting over 2 years to hear him play on our big day and it was well worth the wait! He made it feel like a concert on the dance floor. All of our friends and family were blown away by him and it was the most unbelievable experience. We can’t thank Tyler enough and highly recommend him for your big day!

BEST DECISION EVER - PHENOMENAL!!
Tyler is one of those people that you interact with one time, and it becomes apparent within minutes that he is someone you’d want to hang out and be friends with after your event. The interesting thing about Tyler is his ability to fill a space with his humble, kind and charismatic personality, and he just becomes the embodiment of the musical atmosphere he creates. It felt almost as if his presence wasn’t real. You can certainly feel his energy of happiness while he is jamming in a crowd of people on the sax, and those vibes go out to everyone lucky enough to be in those moments. There’s not much else to say other than he made our wedding truly special, one that my wife and I will hold near and dear to our hearts for the rest of our lives. We are convinced at this point that Tyler is a wizard because nearly a month after our wedding our friends and family are still talking about how incredible he is. You put a spell on us and our peeps. Thank you, Tyler, for all you do, and we look forward to booking our next milestone event with you!

BEST DJ/EMCEE/SAXOPHONIST/PIANIST
If there's one thing you can do to make your wedding memorable, it's hiring Tyler. He's so talented! We had him as our pianist as guests walked in and our saxophonist during cocktail hour/reception and he stole the show. All our guests were amazed at how well he handled the crowd, handled the live music and mp3 all while being the emcee. His list of music is quite wide range too so he can play for any crowd. We postponed our wedding 4 times and all four times, Tyler was so quick to respond giving us tips, ideas, and simple encouragement. He was definitely the smoothest vendor I had who even convinced the owner of the venue to allow live music during reception (there's a certain sound decibel limit at night). Overall, great experience. Hire this guy, you won't regret it.

From planning the details of the big day to the performance on our big day, Tyler was absolutely perfect! He is so professional and organized, yet full of enthusiasm and positive vibes. My now husband and I's family and friends have not stopped talking about how fabulous he was! We booked Tyler to play piano and saxophone, DJ and MC throughout our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Each section of the day was different, but cohesive and smooth. During the reception, he had almost every guest out of the dance floor. We HIGHLY recommend that you book Tyler for any of your events :) We plan to book him for sure in the future!!!
