I want to personally thank Ahmed for being a wonderful addition to my clients wedding. His musical talent is just remarkable and he was so easy to work with. Ahmed was responsive to emails, punctual, and on point for the event. All the guests loved listening to him play.

Ahmed was fantastic to work with, and a HUGE hit among our guests. He is an incredibly gifted musician, and extremely professional as well. He did a great job feeling out our crowd and playing the appropriate music. We ended up hiring him to stay an extra hour since everyone loved the music so much. Thank you Ahmed for making a party so wonderful!

Wonderful choice for my son's Cinco de Mayo Rehearsal dinner! Very easy to work with, very professional, and easily adjusted to playing inside when the winds were MUCH gustier than expected! Great sound... very talented, and all of my guests really enjoyed him playing during our cocktail hour! Would hire him again without any hesitation!

Ahmed Drief was just simply fantastic!! Such professionalism came from him the whole time, we had a little power outage so to keep the mood going he unplugged and played acoustic and everyone just loved it. I would and can't wait to have Ahmed Drief come back and play at our winery!!

Ahmed was incredibly talented and all the guests loved his music and attitude. We got many great compliments from our guests. He worked with us to pick our music and played the music with such talent and grace. We would recommend him to anyone and will probably use him again at any other special event we may have. Thank You Ahmed! From the Bride and Groom...
