- John Sebastian of The Lovin' Spoonful
"Alex was absolutely perfect. His music was just right for this event - we all loved it! He arrived way early and had a great accommodating attitude. I would definitely consider hiring him again."
- Joan Gershon, Emory University
"Alex Gordon does an awesome job! He performed at an event I attended and I enjoyed his music so much, we hired him for a customer event the following year. Alex does a great job managing the crowd and judging the environment. He plays loud enough to be present and noticeable for guests to appreciate the music, bop their head and tap their feet but careful not to overpower the networking occurring at the same time. Alex was really easy to work with and very flexible. We would be honored to have him play at future events."
- Tracy Weatherly, Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway

He's an excellent musician with a stellar work ethic!"
- Regina Roberts, Events By Saving Grace
"I highly recommend Alex! He's easy to work with, professional, and above all, super talented! I engaged him for a corporate event, a happy hour and casual buffet dinner which was held outside on a deck.
My guests loved Alex, his laid-back demeanor, his music,
and the smooth "sound-track" he provided for the evening!"
- Laurie Pike, Sr. Executive Assistant, JLL
"I booked Alex to play an hour’s worth of Christmas music at our event. My team and I were blown away; Alex exceeded expectations in every area. He was prompt, professional, well-dressed, and obviously incredibly talented. He wowed our guests. With just a guitar, he made the atmosphere of our event convivial, inviting, and fun. I’m a very satisfied customer."
- Jared Humphries, Decatur City Church
"Alex plays his own bass lines and chords and melodies on one instrument! You don't get that from anybody else. This is a unique talent. His style is subtle, so you don't realize all that is going on. I asked him to learn a well known song for my wedding, but make it his own. 2 weeks later, he performed this for the most important song of the event and it was beautiful!"
