Arnie was amazing. He played all the hits and was happy to have the crowd sing along. Everyone loved him.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on February 1, 2010From West Nyack, NY

Arnie was magnificent. His music skills--singing, playing--were exemplary. He has a magnetic personality that pleased everyone. Everyone at the party loved his performance and many asked for his card. He helped make our 50th a memorable event. Dr. and Mrs. Allan Wolk

Review by Myron P.

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on November 17, 2009From Galloway, NJ

We received nothing but accolades from our guests at our wedding regarding Arnie's playing. He was easy to work with, communicated well prior to and during the event and as a musician myself, I can only give the highest grade to Arnie. He played excactly the right type of music for the occcassion. Would recommend him to anyone and use him again in a split second. You won't be dissapointed.
