Reviews from Music Dept NYC, Yelp Page:
"Adam was beyond professional and so wonderful to work with. We asked him to play a song recorded and composed by my husband, and he was able to put sheet music to it and played it beautifully on the acoustic guitar and violin with another super talented musician. Not only did Adam go above and beyond any of our expectations leading up to the wedding, the day of the wedding everything was perfect and the music was truly a highlight that everyone remembered. We loved working with Adam and would highly recommend him for any event!"

"Adam is great to work with. He's a one stop shop for all my corporate event live music needs. He has a range of artists and musical talent at his fingertips, and always gives me a nice selection of options for my clients and me to choose from. Most importantly, from a corporate event planner's standpoint, Adam and his talent are reliable and always professional. It's one element of the event I know I never have to worry about. The artists will show up on time, they will perform exactly as contracted, they will be professional, and my clients will be thrilled!

"Adam and Clerida performed as a cello and guitar duo at our wedding this past February and I can't say enough about them. We selected them at the recommendation of our wedding planner who had numerous positive experiences with them in the past, and right from the beginning we were grateful for our pick. Adam worked with us ahead of time to make sure that the they were in lockstep with our vision. The day of, they showed up early, were professional, and truly set the mood with their beautiful performances (lots of Beatles!). We had them for both the ceremony and the cocktail hour and I'm still receiving comments of praise from our guests."
