We hired Alex Ruwe to perform at the rehearsal dinner for our son and future daughter-in-law, held at the Boathouse in Forest Park, this June 2018.
Alex helped make the evening even more memorable with his music. In preparation for the night, he asked the future bride and groom for a list of song requests. He was professional and easy to work with. Alex’s voice and guitar were the perfect backdrop for the evening – not too loud, not too soft. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed his easygoing style and amazing voice. He put his spin on musical classics and made them his own.
Alex welcomed song requests from the guests, and did not disappoint.
The catering staff at the Boathouse also enjoyed his musical talents, they asked for his business card and said they would absolutely recommend him for future events there.
As the wedding festivities came to a close at the end of the weekend, our friends and relatives were still talking about how much they enjoyed Alex’s music and what a perfect addition he was to the evening at the Boathouse.
