Thank you so much for playing at our ceremony! The music was perfect and I also got several compliments about your playing! I wish I could have heard more of it, but everything I heard was outstanding and exactly what I envisioned for our day. We're so happy you were able to add to our wonderful day!
Thank you so much for helping make our wedding day spectacular! You music was exactly what we were looking for. I am sorry we could not enjoy more of it! All of our guests were talking about how beautifully you played.
You were really great -- so many people at the party also commented on how wonderful the entertainment was! Thank you again for everything -- your musical entertaining was everything I had hoped for! It added a beautiful touch to our graduation party.
Good luck to you & I will surely recommend you whenever I can.
Arnie, speaking for my family, thank you for making it a special nite. Your music will not be forgotten. Besides being a pro in your muscial abilities you are a real mensch and everyone had an amazing time. I'm sure we will be seeing you again in the future to celebrate more happy ocassions.
Thank you so much for a great time! You were fantastic. We all had a really good time like I knew we would having you here. Again, thank you so much for a great time. I have gotten a lot of e-mails and texts from family and friends that really enjoyed you! One of my dear friends said "Arnie Rocks!!" I will be sure to have you at another party! Thanks again for everything!! P.S. Birthday girl Nicole had a blast! She loved you!!
Thank you very much for performing at our ceremony yesterday. We received a lot of compliments on your live music, which most people don't utilize, and we were very impressed with your performance.
I am glad that you were able to have no problems setting up at the Queens Botanical Gardens. We have provided your information to a lot of people who asked how we found you for our ceremony, and we will definitely wish you all the best.
Thank you so much for helping to create a spectacular day for us. We have received so many compliments on the music you chose for our guests. It was very important for us to provide a comfortable setting in which all of our guests could have a relaxing enjoyable day, and our expectations were exceeded. We appreciate your attentiveness to our guest's requests and for keeping the "elders" swaying in their chairs!
We would happily serve as a reference in the future. Thanks again for a wonderful afternoon!
Arnie was the keyboard player and emcee at our recent bar mitzvah luncheon. He was great - he was easy to work with and very flexible. His music was beautiful and he was a terrific emcee. Arnie was responsive to the crowd and everyone enjoyed his music. He led the candlelighting ceremony and our guests had great things to say about him. We would absolutely highly recommend Arnie and look forward to working with him in the future. Thank you for everything, you were great and a pleasure to work with.
We can't believe an internet search led us to you! A true professional, you took everything in stride....our ecclectic play list and the addition of a vocalist. You didn't even flinch when two weeks prior to our wedding you were notified of a time AND venue change for the ceremony and the reception!
And, while we were thinking your strength may lie in your people skills and organizational skills, we were thoroughly pleased to find an incredible musician! We, along with our guests, enjoyed the music and vocals throughout the ceremony and reception. We are still receiving positive feedback on your music!
While never meant to "put you to the test", you "performed" perfectly. We are grateful for your kindness throughout the whole process, your suggestions, flexibility, and professionalism. Thank you! We look forward to having you play again!
Please feel free to use us as a reference if needed.
Our very best,
- Ronda and John K. - Cliffside Park, NJ
Thank you! Your music gave us just the ambiance we wanted during the first portion of our gala. It is good to know that you are right here in the Monmouth County area any time we are looking a pianist for events like yesterday's.
I will pass on your request for vocalists to my group as well as to other musicians I know. I will be sure to let them know that not only are you an excellent musician, you are also a very nice person to work with.
I will put you on our mailing list to let you know of upcoming concerts. FYI, we have two coming up in May, so check out our website www.njchambersingers.org. and maybe we'll see you in our audience one day!
Arnie was magnificent. His music skills--singing, playing--were exemplary. He has a magnetic personality that pleased everyone. Everyone at the party loved his performance and many asked for his card. He helped make our 50th a memorable event.
Many thanks for helping to make for a terrific party at our home. You truly delivered on my wish to create a "Dueling Pianos" atmosphere, where my guests could feel empowered to take the microphone and let it fly. You made it comfortable for both kids and adults to be part of the show, which was really special.
Everyone had a great time (thanks for your willingness to stay two extra hours!), and they are raving about the "party of the year" in my neighborhood.
We've been meaning to write back to you and say thanks again for being an integral part of what ended up being a truly magical evening. As all our guests and family told you (and told us over the last couple weeks!), you were really wonderful. My parents and grandparents heard their wedding songs, and thank you so much for playing them, and especially for learning "Because." My grandparents are both well into their 90s, and it was such a wonderful tribute to them to be able to hear their wedding song played at our wedding.
Of course, we would be more than happy to serve as a reference for you in any way we can, and we will definitely not forget about you for any events that we, or our family or friends, have in the future. If it is possible to get on a mailing list of your public performances, we would love that too.
Anyway, thanks again, and all the very best to you this holiday season and throughout the new year...
Thank you for providing us with terrific entertainment today. Our members were really "wowed" by you! Everyone had very complimentary comments regarding your talent as well as your enthusiasm while performing. It was a treat for us to have such a lively, fun-filled gathering and certainly put everyone in the holiday spirit. Also, thanks so much for bringing the song books so we could sing along with you, as well as providing copies of your CDs.
We really appreciate your making the drive from Freehold to Flemington to play for us. We wish you a very Happy Holiday Season and hope to see you again.
We received nothing but accolades from our guests at our wedding regarding Arnie's playing. He was easy to work with, communicated well prior to and during the event and as a musician myself, I can only give the highest grade to Arnie. He played excactly the right type of music for the occcassion. Would recommend him to anyone and use him again in a split second. You won't be disappointed.
All went well and the party was a true success.... your musician was a perfect addition to the evening. He received so many compliments!!!!!! The professional treatment I received from your company was a pleasure. Thank you!
Yesterday was a wonderful day. The music was delightful and helped to make the day so memorable! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job. Kristin, your vocalist, was a great addition! It was a pleasure working with you.
Thanks again, Carly and I had a blast! You sounded great and a lot of the guests complimented your song choices. Carly even welled up with tears when she heard you play Falling Slowly! We will definitely pass your name along to anyone we know who is looking for a musician. If you ever need a reference, feel free to get in touch with me, I will be more than happy to tell whomever what an awsome job you did and how happy Carly and I were.
Yesterday was a very special day for us. You certainly enhanced our wedding day with your music. I'm sorry we were only able to say a quick hello but I would sincerely like to thank you. You were a pleasure to work with. You were fantastic! We will definetly keep you in mind for any future events.
Thank you! You were amazing! I want you to know that you added so much to my party. My friends loved your music and I think you will get some additional business from the evening. I know that I plan to use you again.
We want to take a moment to thank you for a great evening. The calls have not stopped. Everyone had such a great time. You did it again. You are the best. Cannot wait to have another party so you can once again bring fun and song into our home. Thanks for making the long trip out.
Everyone had a great time and appreciated your music. You really did a fabulous job and Irene and I thank you very much. All our guests as well as the Club Management had very high "notes" for you. You played the music we liked, no doubt! Your warm words of appreciation show the high class act you are.
Please accept our compliments. Hopefully our paths will cross again sometime, somewhere. I would not be surprised if one day The Windmill Club will approach you.
Thanks again and good luck.

Arnie was professional and willing to accommodate all of our needs. He even went out of his way for some special requests. For our corporate event we needed someone who didn't mind being a "side dish" to the event and would be motivating and high energy. Not only was he but he added the music to the event that got people up on their feet and singing! Do not hesitate to have Arnie Abrams at one of your events. We will be using him again and again.

"Sings Like Sinatra!!!"
Wow! I found Arnie on Google and after a short conversation on the phone, took a leap of faith on him for my wedding. How lucky were we?! Arnie is professional, and friendly. His pictures do not do him justice either. He knows exactly what to ask to make sure all the details are taken care of. He helped me choose the right song to walk down the aisle. I get goose bumps when I hear him play it - Theme from Ice Castles. It was a beautiful wedding - much in part to the beautiful music Arnie played. Call him and book him. He enhanced my wedding and I can't wait to hear him play again. He just makes people want to dance. Perfect. Reasonable & Reliable. I love him!
Punctual, professional, flexible and friendly! Truly a professional, able to provide a myriad of genres and styles, very attentive to performing at a volume that added to the evening, and still allowed our 30 guests to converse. Took requests and also provided a list, beforehand, of possible selections. Excellent in every way! A pleasure to meet and work with! Thanks Again Arnie!
Arnie was the Man of the day to me! He truly saved me! I was completely disappointed in myself when I realized I Had forgotten music for my ceremony and my cocktail hour. Well, I called Arnie about a week and a ½ to 2 weeks prior to my wedding and he worked with me so and he made it happen!!! I sent him my money and he was there on time and ready to roll. He was so nice and did an amazing job! I really wish I had the opportunity to get to know him better. But, I booked way to close to my wedding. However, I will be using him again.
Arnie met with us prior to our event to "audition" and demonstrate his abilities. On the day of the event, Arnie arrived early and ran through a few numbers before guests arrived. During our party, Arnie performed exceptionally well and handled requests beautifully. Arnie circulated among the guests to encourage participation. He stayed a little late and played for a few guests who had special requests, since the party was still going on. As a musical performer myself, I can honestly say that we would definitely hire him again.
Arnie was prompt and was already set up before any of the guests arrived. He was very responsive to the group, displayed a great deal of professionalism in his demeanor, and was the perfect entertainer for the occasion. His sets were longer than we expected, were very engaging with the group, and contributed to the success of the evening. We all were very satisfied.
This comes with great appreciation and gratitude for your inspiring music. From our standpoint, the two most important aspects of dealing with any professional, is the fact that the person is easy to deal with and does what he says he is going to do.
Thank you Arnie, for being that professional. We thoroughly enjoyed your music, and its part in the magical day we tried to put together. An extra special thank you for agreeing to accompany the Cantor during the ceremony.
I just wanted to say Thank You! Although I was only able to hear a few songs (photographer took us away!), I heard that you did a wonderful job and everyone really enjoyed your music. Thank you for being a part of my wedding!
Just a note to thank you for your wonderful music on Saturday. You gave our wedding day a special touch. All of our guests really enjoyed the music, too. Rob and I wanted to join in on the cocktail hour but it flew by so fast that it was already time for the dinner reception.
Again, thank you and we will recommend you for other parties and/or other engagements.
All my best to you,
Isabel & Rob Z, Piscataway, NJ
Just wanted you to have a few shots from our wedding on Sat, May 30th.
I wanted to thank you for your wonderful playing that we received tons of compliments on.
The guests really enjoyed your music!
I only heard the last song!!! But it was great!
Thanks for being such a big part of our day and being very understanding at the last minute changes.
I will recommend you to anyone who is having a party.
I just wanted to thank you for such a great job. Everyone was telling me how your live music during the cocktail hour was such a nice touch and what a great job you did. It's true I'm sure that youre not able to find many in-tune 100-year old Steinway's now a days. Im happy that you had the chance to play on it!
I will keep you in mind for any other upcoming events and will recommend you to anyone that is looking for live music.
