Many students and staff have approached me and offered their thanks for coordinating the assembly. I would highly recommend you to any other school. Andrew Hershey, PE Teacher, and Assembly Coordinator

WOW! Alex was amazing! He performed for our graduating seniors on their all-night graduation celebration, which means he performed, full of energy and wit, at 3 AM. He had read our local paper and made jokes with the kids as if he’d known them for years. They loved it! I would HIGHLY recommend Alex. He is professional, extremely talented and accommodating! I would hire him again in a heartbeat! Liz Covert, Friday Harbor High School
