  • Tyler recently played the saxophone at our wedding ceremony. He is very talented and an amazing saxophone player! We did not tell anyone he was going to play at our wedding, so it was a total surprise when our guests arrived, and they were all in awe of his performance (my husband and I could not agree more), and we still talk about it to this day! If you want to make a lasting impression on your wedding day, I highly recommend you contact Tyler and book him right away, I promise you will be glad that you did! Tyler was exceptional to work with!
