    Excellent Guitarist

    Jim is the best! He recently played for our daughter's backyard wedding, and we loved his performance. He had played a couple years ago at our other daughter's wedding, and we chose him again. He has all his guitar songs memorized, so he is able to play outside without worrying about the wind blowing sheet music. He excels at communicating with his prompt and thorough emails. And he comes early to the wedding to discuss when to begin playing and how the processional will go. We highly recommend Jim as a wedding guitarist!

    Jim's great! (August 2020)

    My wife's a classically-trained singer (music is important to her) and her primary wish was to have a classical guitarist be the soundtrack of our day. Due to COVID-19 we moved the wedding from San Diego to her hometown in Iowa, with limited options. We found Jim Falbo in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro and, because Jim's so responsive, within a matter of an hour or so we had him booked for our date.

    Easy negotiation of the contract, travel details and logistics. Pricing was totally reasonable.

    Jim's amazing. Exactly what we had envisioned / heard in our minds' eye. The mood of the ceremony and cocktail hour was perfect. Great selection of songs to choose from and he even added one or two requests, including an accompaniment with our friend who sang.

    So happy that we found Jim!

    Wonderful music

    Jim was amazing for our wedding at Minneapolis Event Centers. He did such a nice job and we loved the ceremony, and guests loved prelude and postlude!
