Jason, what a talent you are! Thank you for making our wedding ceremony so special. Your music was absolutely beautiful and we loved the song selections. Walking down the aisle to the beautiful simplicity of a live acoustic guitar really made the moment exceptional. The only problem was that it went by too quickly. Your guitar playing added such a special touch. So many guests commented on the lovely music. You truly did an amazing job. I want to thank you for your part in making this the happiest day of our lives.

To whom it may concern:
Musician Jason Zimmerman recently provided entertainment at a fundraising event for Neighborhood HealthSource at Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis. We were fortunate enough to find him via the volunteermatch.com website – and what a find!
All the feedback I heard – from the board, staff and guests of the organization – was unanimous in its praise. Jason was masterful at weaving between current music and familiar classics. He is a skilled guitarist who also did a nice job of reading the crowd: He would play louder, more upbeat tunes when that tone was called for, and he would fade in intensity and volume when background music was more appropriate.
Two other guests at my table had this to say:
o “It was the perfect background music for the Gala and really helped create a festive atmosphere.” – Dana J., board member
o "Great music that set just the right tone for the evening. Highly recommended!" – Chris Q., guest
To top it off – and on his own initiative – Jason stuck around after the official event had ended to serenade the clean-up crew. He really went above and beyond for this event.
We were very pleased with his talented performance and his easygoing, generous, personable manner. We highly recommend him for other events!

Jason is not only a very gifted musician, but he is also an extremely creative individual whose passion for what he does shows in every show he plays. He did a fantastic job playing a weekly gig at my hotel, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for good tunes and a reliable, friendly artist!
