Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 1, 2021From Baltimore, MD

Alan was a phenomenal performer. He showed up early to go over the space, was accommodating and polite to all of our guests, and provided phenomenal musical accompaniment throughout the ceremony!

Mr Alan Oresky was absolutely wonderful in every respect performing his music at my daughter's wedding. He arrived early, set up, warmed up, was ready to perform on time, played a variety of beautiful music. He was quick to respond to all emails and texts. I would recommend him highly. Thank you Alan!!!!

Nursing Home EventReviewed on January 17, 2020From Arlington, VA

A five star rating isn't even an adequate number of stars to describe my experience with Alan. Prior to hearing him, I was leaning towards another violinist, but boy am I glad that I decided to give him a listen. Not only is he a PHENOMINAL musician with a vast musical repertoire, but he also has a BEAUTIFUL spirit! (feels genuine, not forced for the purpose of winning you over) He performed for our pre-Thanksgiving celebratory dinner at the nursing facility I work for, and to say that the residents and staff ABSOLUTLY LOVED him would be an UNDERSTATMENT! I totally recommend Alan to anyone looking for an accomplished violinist. He is truly a gem!


Thanks, Damien! It was a pleasure working with you and your very friendly and accommodating staff as well! All the Best for the New Year!

Alan was amazing! He was a hit with the family at my father’s 80th birthday party. He played the traditional Irish music as requested, and we loved every moment!

Memorial ServiceReviewed on November 5, 2018From Gaithersburg, MD

I contacted Alan regarding a memorial service for my recently departed SO/Partner. His participation was a huge addition to what we had envisioned for the life celebration. I had some specific requests which he accommodated wonderfully and we threw a few last minutes curves at him in terms of adding another musician. He was professional in how he handled himself and the last minutes changes, performed beautifully and was a real gentleman. At the end of the service, people got out of their seats and danced. Could not have been a better ending to what Alison and I had envisioned.

Alan did an outstanding job. It was a wedding with a mixed age group and both Alan and the music fit in very nicely.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 1, 2017From Washington, DC

Without Alan, my wedding day would not have been complete. The music he played helped to set the tone for my wedding day. He was very wonderful and easy to work with. I asked him to play a certain song as I walked down the aisle, which he did without a problem. I would truly recommend Alan for any event. I can not say enough praises about him.


Thanks for that nice review, Jenny! All the Best!

WeddingReviewed on June 23, 2017From Myersville, MD

What a great experience! Alan was great with communication and feedback. He offered us suggestions for our wedding ceremony music and arranged several songs that we wanted to hear but he didn't have in his repertoire. Alan was prepared and ready to go at ceremony time. It was like he had practiced with us the night before. Seamless. I would highly recommend Alan and whomever he brings to play with him. We have received so many compliments regarding his musical talents and that of his co-musician, Esther Haynes. Bravo to both!

Alan played the mandolin for our garden wedding ceremony. He has a wide range of music he can play and my guests were impressed with his ability. His mandolin-playing added a beautiful touch to the ceremony. I would highly recommend Alan for any event.

This artist was easy to work with, and an amazing performer. Multiple people at our wedding complimented us on our choice of music. He was also able to learn songs by request! I would definitely recommend this person to my friends!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on November 9, 2016From Jarrettsville, MD

We are so happy that we chose Alan to play at our daughter's wedding. We chose him after going over several violinist profiles and reviews. My daughter and her new husband along with several of our guests commented on the quality of his playing along with his wonderful selection of music. My daughter had a few requests and I asked him to include some Irish/Celtic and bluegrass. He chose the rest. My 80 year old aunt loved his version of "Danny Boy." I would certainly recommend him to friends, family and co-workers for their special event. Thank you Gigmasters and thank you again Alan for performing at our daughter's wedding.


Thank you for that glowing review, Theresa! All the Best to the new couple and their families!

Alan Oresky is a very talented fiddler and mandolin player. He not only took the fiddle lead in playing Old-Time music, but also worked to integrate the other musicians so that our string band produced a great sound. Our audience was very appreciative and impressed with the fiddle solo pieces he played for us including Jerusalem Ridge, a difficult but beautiful bluegrass instrumental tune. Alan was the key musician that made our concert a success. Depending on the tune, Alan appropriately chose to play either the fiddle or the mandolin to best accompany the band. Alan's friendly personality and guidance was a great asset to the band. We hope to work with him again.

Alan was a delight to have at my wedding. My wife and I were very pleased with his performance and professionalism. I would highly recommend his services.


Thanks so much for that glowing review, Kevin and Shalin! It was truly a pleasure performing for you! I hope that you will have a wonderful life together!

Alan is the perfect choice. Very east to communicate with and quickly responds. He did a phenomenal job for our outside wedding even with high temps and high humidity that day. His playing his top notch and was the perfect addition to the ceremony and cocktail hour. I wish I had more time to talk to him and tell him how happy I was. Thanks Alan!

ConcertReviewed on February 6, 2016From Elkton, MD

I am recording an album of original contemporary music and needed Alan's violin and mandolin talents to add to the sound of my songs. We set up are a recording session where Alan was to overdub his violin and mandolin parts to selected songs. He arrived early and rehearsed and worked diligently to add his unique talents to the mix. I could not be happier with the results. Not only were Alan's violin/mandolin parts spot on but his creativity in adding his voice greatly enhanced the music. I heard the songs as I had originally composed them. I highly recommend Alan Oresky for violin and mandolin.

Alan was great. He made our Irish inspired wedding very special

Review by Patricia F.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on November 4, 2015From Cambridge, MD

Alan was absolutely amazing in the way that he created a relaxing and beautiful atmosphere. His talent was evident from the time he began. The set list was left completely up to him for our wedding and he was only given the direction of what I wanted the feeling of the day to be. He played for our ceremony and cocktail hour and supplied an amp and mic for our officiant. We couldn't have asked for a better violinist/mandolin player. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a reliable, affordable and talented musician! Thank you Alan !!! ~Mr. and Mrs. Mosley

Retirement PartyReviewed on July 15, 2015From Pasadena, MD

Alan accommodated my needs on a very short time frame for a retirement dinner for 25 that due to weather, had to be moved inside. He communicated with me on a timely basis and delivered on all expectations. My guests loved him. He even had some dancing in my living room! Guests enjoyed chatting with him on break and after his time commitment had been fulfilled. The music was perfect for the occasion. I would definitely recommend him!

Alan was a consummate professional. His playing added additional class to my grand-daughter's wedding. He was more than accommodating with requests. Many of our guests expressed delight with his playing and were also impressed with his use of not only the violin but also a mandolin. I can not say enough to express our complete satisfaction with his performance.
