Testimonials:

"Book Kaz for your wedding ceremony and you will not be disappointed! Kaz was so great to work with from the beginning- easy going, professional, kind, and an extremely talented musician. He worked within my budget and offered some great suggestions for music as I really was overwhelmed with decisions and had a hard time making a playlist for the ceremony. He and Cameron played our music selections during our ceremony perfectly and also played for our guests during our cocktail hour while my husband and I were off taking photos and we received nothing but raving positive feedback from our guests -- they were all very impressed with him. I would recommend booking Kaz in a second to any bride looking for something beautiful to walk down the aisle to."

-Rachael & Joe Rotella, Married May 3rd, 2015 at Zion Lutheran Church 


"Interesting and gentle - a perfect combination for a New York wedding. Cameron was easy to work with and wonderfully accommodating to our musical needs. He brings a dependability, uniqueness, and intimacy that is like no other. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a violinist!"
