"Andre was amazing and the perfect choice for my daughter's wedding! We met him before the wedding and he was very responsive and professional. My daughter requested a special song for her to walk down the aisle and Andre played it perfectly! The bride entrance was the real highlight of the ceremony! He was an awesome DJ, too! Our guests had a blast! We got so many compliments about his job! He is a highly experienced and full of ideas musician with a great taste, and huge repertoire that covers different styles of music! Looking forward hiring him again in the future!"
"Thank you Andre for your wonderful musical talent. It was successfully surprising and refreshing! You did an awesome job and took my event to the next level. You are number one on my list and will be the first to call if I ever need a musician at any of my events. Your warmth and genuine talent impressed my guests who gave me ravenous reviews regarding you. Perfection - It couldn't have been better. You were a Godsend. Thank you - you have a lifelong fan."

"Andre's wife, soprano Alina Ilchuk, gave the featured musical performance at our prestigious fundraising dinner in San Francisco for the Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation to support Ukrainian Catholic University. Andre accompanied his wife on saxophone and flute. Their performance was breathtakingly beautiful. Alina and Andre are wonderful, warm, professional musicians. They listen carefully to what you would like, and then captivate their audiences with beautiful music. Andre is also an expert technician, comes in with his own equipment, and quickly sets up the sound and stage perfectly. They move among various musical genres with ease. As a trained musician myself, I give Andre and Alina my highest recommendation. Whether for a wedding, reception, dinner or other occasion, you can count on Alina and Andre to make your event very special."

“ ...Andre's music is perfect and filled the room creating an amazing atmosphere. He fulfilled my wishes beyond expectation! Thank You for your wonderful work and making our wedding more special than what it already was!"
"I booked Andre for a wedding reception I hosted at my home. His gorgeous wife was so professional and asked all the right questions so we got exactly what we wanted. He was wonderful and it was so neat to have the mood set by live music in the backyard. I couldn't count how many guests commented on how great he was! He played a variety of music that was enjoyed by our guests of all ages. He even took requests which was very fun for our guests. I couldn't recommend Andre enough for your next party or event!"
“ Andre did a phenomenal performance on my daughter's wedding. Everyone was so impressed. The best saxophonist for events of any kind.”
“I had Andre play for my wedding. He is very professional, prompt, and easy to work with. If you want to make your wedding more special, spend an extra $ and add saxophone to it, you won't regret it.”
“ Andre made our wedding experience absolutely amazing! He was able to sense the mood of the crowd of all ages and sway them with any song he played! He provided us with coordination, DJ and live music, including all the top notch equipment! We can't thank him enough for all that he did, and would recommend him to anyone and everyone!”

Take a peek at a selection of my live performances here.
Ever since I started playing saxophone, I knew I was destined to be a performer. Shortly after receiving my Master's Degree in Performance from Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts, Ukraine, I began my career as a professional saxophone player and DJ.
I lived and worked in four continents, including both Americas, Europe and Africa. I used to tour with such renowned musicians as Keiko Matsui, De Phazz, and an acclaimed Dutch DJ Eddy Good. I played on live TV in a Ukrainian version of Dancing With The Stars for three seasons and was a part of the orchestra for famous European circuses in England (Circus Vegas) and Germany (Circus Busch - Roland). I had a privilege to collaborate with many artists while cruising on a ship around the globe as part of Royal Caribbean Cruise company and was a solo artist at the Art Studio Entertainment Agency in Hurghada, Egypt.
I often perform with my lovely wife, Alina Ilchuk, who is a professional singer. Alina has performed throughout Europe, the United States and Canada. She has recently appeared as a principal artist with the Sacramento Opera, the Reno Baroque Ensemble, the Bay Area Classical Harmonies, and Slavic Chorale. She received her Master's Degree in Voice Performance from California State University, Sacramento and is a member of the prestigious music honor society Pi Kappa Lambda. Her repertoire includes both, light classical and pop hits.
