The decision to hire Audley proved to be the highlight of the evening. His performance and style helped to create a smooth and relaxed environment. He was entertaining, engaging and spontaneous at every turn. His music seduced both the young and the old and has made the Reunion Event the most talked about production in 60 years of documented family history.
Audley played the saxophone, hitting memorable notes and extending harmonies that literally bounced off the ballroom walls. His performance was noted, by many, including the hotel production staff, for its dramatic impact on the mood of those in attendance.
As a rule, I do not write letters of recommendations, but in the case of Audley Reid, it would be wrong not to. His professionalism was on full display during both the business and performance phase of our interaction. He was a joy to hear and work with.
