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.
