- Damon "Tuba Gooding Jr." Bryson of The Roots; Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
"I met Hiruy when he was 18 and a freshman at the University of the Arts- a driven and hardworking young man. Close to ten years later, he’s matured to a wonderful musician- soulful, swinging, and with a strong voice on his horn and in his music. I always am excited to hear him play!"
- Mike Cemprola; Alto Saxophonist of The United States Air Force Airmen of Note
"What can I say? He’s my first call whenever I need horn parts on a record or a horn section for a gig. He’s easy to work with, very professional, great energy and his skill level is elite. More importantly, great person!"
