    Hire Jim NOW!

    Jim played his guitar during our wedding ceremony, cocktail reception, and dinner. Three hours straight without a break! We didn't have a clue what music we wanted for our ceremony. Jim met me a couple weeks before the event and brought along his guitar and gave us lots of options! He's so talented, humble, and gracious. You'd be lucky to have him be a part of any special event. He brought our wedding to life in a way that I never imagined. I feel honored that we were able to have him at our wedding. He's amazing.

    Jim came highly recommended by my wedding venue and I am so thankful for that recommendation. Jim was a bride’s dream to work with. Communication was so clear and easy and fast, and the music was beautiful. His guitar set the perfect tone for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and he was excellent with recommending songs we had never even considered. We could not have been happier. I would definitely recommend Jim to play for your special event if you’re looking for a professional guitarist.

    Sincerely,
    Jim Olsen
