We honestly couldn't have loved him more. Ruben was the BEST. Everyone raved about him and was a little sad when it was over. SO reasonably priced, SO sweet and incredibly talented. He had a vast list of songs to choose from and nailed them all. He brought such a fun, lively presence to our cocktail hour. You MUST book him!!

Ruben Cantu performed this past Saturday at our Holiday Party at the Hollywood Roosevelt and was truly amazing! We had over 150+ guests and we received so many compliments regarding Ruben. It was the perfect touch for our cocktail hour at the Holiday Party. I cannot thank you enough. Professional, prompt, sweet, styling, and so much more. I'll for recommend him to anyone who would like to have a great time and listen to awesome tunes. I would like to bring him back next year or sooner. Thank you Ruben!

SaxMajor - American:Latin:Bollywood’s Response:

Brittney, Thank you so much for inviting me to perform for the Keslow Camera Holiday Party at the world famous Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. The guests were trendy and diverse.The venue for the cocktail hour was incredible. Hotel staff were very helpful throughout. Just to let other readers know that I performed a mix of holiday music, recent Top 40 and Latin. And finally, it was a real pleasure to make your acquaintance.

We hired Ruben for our destination wedding in San Diego. I had no idea he would knock it out of the park. He was able to perform every song (both American and Punjabi/Bollywood) live on the saxophone. I had a special request to merge two songs as part of my bridal entrance and again, Ruben delivered. He showed up very early the day of the wedding to set up and started playing earlier than expected and he also stayed later for cocktail and finished up strong. He was honestly the best addition to our special day and I am so glad we stumbled across him. I would recommend his services for any event in the future. Our guests at the wedding were asking for his card. :)
