    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!

    Beautiful music from a professional!

    Jim did a great job working with us on music and was very punctual and courteous. He played many beautiful songs that fit the mood of our event and we received compliments on. We would highly recommend him to play for your next event.

    You are in great hands if you hire Jim

    Jim is an incredibly talented musician. He played for both our ceremony and dinner reception, and we lost track of how many people commented on the beauty and energy of the music throughout the night. Jim has played a ton of weddings and knows how to navigate all aspects of the experience with flexibility and professionalism. He was responsive, communicative, and helpful at all stages of planning. Couldn't recommend him more!
