Client Testimonials:

"I booked the Ari Seder Jazz Duo for a cocktail reception honoring our Past Presidents in July. The standard jazz classics they played in an unobtrusive manner were just the right mix for our event. They play with great skill and professionalism.

I would recommend them to anyone interested in a smooth listening sound. Everyone had a fantastic time and I received many compliments on the entertainment. People were saying that the duo really added that special something to the evening. I will not hesitate to hire them again! Thanks for a job well done."

"We have hired Ari Seder to perform at several private and business functions. I highly recommend him and plan to use him often in the future. First and foremost, Ari is an extremely talented musician. He has an extensive playlist and our guests have been uniformly impressed by his music.

In addition to his talent and showmanship, however, Ari is extremely professional and organized. He meticulously prepares for every event to ensure that his performance meets our needs and goes off without a hitch. At important business and personal functions, it is important to know that you are hiring someone who will deliver and impress. Ari Seder does this without fail."

"Ari performed for our family on Motherís Day this year and we couldnít have been happier as a result.

He made an otherwise simple backyard brunch into a very special event. His music filled the air while everyone either sat and listened or ran around playing with the kids.

Thanks to Ari, motherís day this year was one to remember fondly."
