Jim Falbo is Amazing
Jim was incredibly responsive and flexible. He was able to accept the job to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour on relatively short notice. He was quick to send us a very wide-ranging repertoire to choose from which allowed us to create a perfectly tailored set list for both the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Jim was flexible in adding time to his original commitment and was very competitively priced. Jim also offered to learn additional pieces if we had a special song in mind.Sent on 11/15/2019
In addition to our appreciation, we had many people come up to tell us how beautiful the music was during the ceremony and how cool the cocktail hour was with Jim playing in the background.
I truly believe Jim elevated the overall experience of our wedding day.
I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for music at their event.

Loved Working With Jim
Jim Falbo played guitar for our ceremony and was the epitome of professionalism. He responded to all questions we had in a timely fashion. He even invited us to listen to him perform some of his arrangements, to include the piece he arranged just for us per our request . He was punctual for the event, showing up well before the agreed upon time. He had a very large catalog of songs from which we could choose. We really appreciated the classy touch that having Jim play for us brought to our ceremony/reception.Sent on 10/07/2019
