Wonderful person, talented musician
Jim was wonderful to work with on a 2020 Wedding Rehearsal Dinner to Remember! Cancelled & Rescheduled due to COVID restrictions. All arrangements made by email, text and a single phone call- the process was seamless. His music and selections were great. He was on time, he set the mood for the evening and guests commented on how perfect the night was - music was soft and allowed for conversation to be heard; just how we envisioned. Highly recommend his services. Very pleased!Sent on 01/13/2021
