Lucy Poole, Bride, Piper Palm House Wedding (5-STAR)
Alex exceeded our expectations in every way. From the acoustic set during our ceremony, the acoustic duo during cocktail hour, into the DJ set for a memorable post dinner dance party. We received many compliments on all of the music, and the sound set up was perfect all around. He was friendly, easy to work with, and a great communicator. 10/10!
Tracy White, Program Manager, Wells Fargo (5-STAR)
Alex has provided music (Solo Acoustic, Duo & DJ) for several of our events, including: High Performing Teams Conference, PCG Client Experienced Symposiums, FiNet Forums and WBS 1 & 2 Forums.
I was introduced to Alex by one of our vendors last year and have not used another source of musical entertainment for our events since. Not only is he brilliant at what he does musically; our clients love him, he’s versatile with his song choices, he caters to his audience and he’s the consummate professional – at all times. Before, during and after the events….he not only asks for but receives feedback in a very positive light and will adjust his style/song choices/approach accordingly, if needed. I have forwarded his information along to others in my organization who have utilized Alex in the same capacity and all have raved about his music and his professionalism. He is our go-to music man now! I truly cannot say enough good things about Alex – other than – I’m fortunate enough to be able to work him. He’s an awesome performer with a wide range of musical talent.

I've booked Alex several times for events ranging from an awards gala to a private function at a coffee shop, and there's a good reason. He is the total package. He is quick to communicate, very reasonably priced, sounds phenomenal (whether he's solo or backed by his band), and always gets rave reviews from our guests. I would recommend him without reservation and urge you to contact me directly should you need to hear more reasons why he's the one for your event!
Alexandra Fowler, Executive Producer, CPG Agency (5-STAR)
My company has used Alexander Ruwe for many events and will continue to do so. He is professional, easy to work with, and most importantly, great at what he does. He brings such positive energy to the environment when he plays, and has a wide-range of songs in his catalog that keeps everyone singing along. I would highly recommend Alex for any upcoming event where you need an outstanding entertainer.
Heather Graham, Senior project manager (5-star)
I’ve hired Alex several times for various clients/events and have had the opportunity to hear him perform solo acoustic and as The Alex Ruwe Band, and both are excellent! The great thing about working with Alex is he has the ability to customize his performance to fit your needs, and that could mean he plays acoustic guitar in the beginning, switches to The Alex Ruwe Band in the middle and wraps up the evening with DJ music. This unique aspect of what Alex is able to offer to his client's really sets him apart from a lot of the other artists out there.

Alex was incredibly friendly and easy to work with. His performance was excellent! He read the crowd perfectly and performed a variety of songs that appealed to everyone. We will definitely hire Alex again!
Melanie Andrews, Asst Regional Superintendent (5-STAR)
Alex played a variety of songs that provided the perfect backdrop to a Rotary fundraising event. Attendees spanned a variety of age levels, and the music played touched on different genres and musical tastes. There was something there for everyone to enjoy.
Ann Hoerber Layton, Mother of the Groom (5-STAR)
We hired Alex Ruwe to perform at the rehearsal dinner for our son and future daughter-in-law, held at the Boathouse in Forest Park, this June 2018.
Alex helped make the evening even more memorable with his music. In preparation for the night, he asked the future bride and groom for a list of song requests. He was professional and easy to work with. Alex’s voice and guitar were the perfect backdrop for the evening – not too loud, not too soft. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed his easygoing style and amazing voice. He put his spin on musical classics and made them his own.
Alex welcomed song requests from the guests, and did not disappoint.
The catering staff at the Boathouse also enjoyed his musical talents, they asked for his business card and said they would absolutely recommend him for future events there.
As the wedding festivities came to a close at the end of the weekend, our friends and relatives were still talking about how much they enjoyed Alex’s music and what a perfect addition he was to the evening at the Boathouse.
Kent McMahon, Event Host (5-star)
Professional all the way. Alex can telepathically read his audience and adjust the song selections accordingly. He can be the front man and put on a show or fade into the background when appropriate. Alex is the real deal and his love for music is transferable to his audience.
Samantha Books, Bride (5-STAR)
Alex was the perfect choice for our afternoon wedding reception! We could not believe how many people remarked on how wonderful he was and asked ‘Where did you find him!?’ Working with Alex from start to end was a joy; one of the the most professional and organized people I’ve ever booked for an event. My husband wasn’t sure we needed a musician at our informal party but, afterwards said, ‘Honey, you hit it out of the park when you booked Alex! Everyone loved him!’
Bradley Lavern Peters Jr., RARE Chop House, Manager (5-STAR)
Alexander has been a long time staple at our venue and has taken up a monthly residence throughout 2018. His level of professionalism is always top notch in every aspect. He draws in a fantastic crowd, and always has excellent song selections to create the perfect ambience in any situation. I would personally recommend his services without hesitation to anyone inquiring.
Russell Warren, FRosty Mug, Entertainment Manager (5-STAR)
Alex always brings his A game to every performance. He has a fantastic, huge songbook. Very crowd pleasing doing songs across R&B to Country to Pop and 50's Crooners. He plays his covers in his own unique style that our crowd always loves. He is one of if not our biggest draws, and we love to have him as often as we can book him. That's his only down side, he's so good he's always booked!
Chuck Ayers, The Ayers Farmstead, Owner/Operator (5-STAR)
What a wonderful evening, Alex played a solo show in the Barn Loft @ The Ayers Farmstead. I always knew he was a talented musician/singer/songwriter, but did not realize what a great entertainer he is. Very much enjoyed his engagement with the audience. Highly recommended!
