Another Great Wedding at Picturesque Jackson, New Hampshire + Another Great Review

On November 19th, 2011, we performed Live Piano Music & provided Classy DJ/Emcee Services for a Wedding at Whitney's Inn in Jackson, NH. This picturesque location is a Summer Vacation & Winter Ski Resort for many New Englanders.  It was a little bit quieter in the late fall. For the Cocktail Hour, we performed Jazz Piano and Billy Joel, Elton John, & John Legend Piano Hits. For the Reception, the Bride & Groom, who are avid fans of 80's Dance Pop music had us perform lots of hits from such artists as Michael Jackson, Madonna, & Depeche Mode. We were delighted to receive the bride's online review shortly after the wedding on WeddingWire: "I would give Aaron Topfer more than 5 stars if that were an option! Simply put, he is amazing and absolutely wonderful to work with. He has a professionalism and work ethic unlike any other DJ out there and his value for the quality of service he provides is unmatched! Aaron played live piano at our cocktail hours in addition to DJ/emcee-ing our reception and everything was beyond perfect! He respected our "do not play" lists while keeping the dance floor moving all night- Aaron has the ability to get everyone out of their seats and really made our reception- I would HIGHLY recommend Aaron to anyone looking for a quality DJ/musician without all the gimmicks- he's the best!"

A 2011 Wedding We Performed at was Featured in NH Magazine!

Here was the Bride's Review of Our Services as posted "Aaron is extremely talented and provided beautiful piano music for our ceremony. He had another musician play the flute. Our guests asked us if our ceremony music was recorded because it sounded so nice. He also played piano during the cocktail hour and was very accomodating to what we wanted to hear. Aaron makes sure to speak at length before the wedding to get a sense of what we expected and how he could deliver it. Aaron also was the DJ for the entire night and knows how to play music to keep people on the dance floor. . . All in all, Aaron is talented, professional, responsive, and a value for the price you will pay." Here's the Link to the Magazine Article about Her Wedding:
