Amazing Guitarist Made Our Wedding Beautiful
Jim was amazing to work with! From the start he was wonderfully communicative, and was able to clearly lay out our options after we shared what we were looking for. While he has a long list of songs as part of his repertoire, we were also able to pick a couple of songs - and he learned how to play so that he could perform them at our wedding. Jim brought all his own equipment and performed beautifully for our ceremony and cocktail. Our only regret is that we didn't get to listen to him more (as we weren't at our cocktail for very long). We highly recommend Jim - he's professional, incredibly talented, and was easy to work with. We're so appreciative that Jim could join us and help make our wedding day special!Sent on 10/30/2018

Jim Perona Guitarist
I was so excited to get Jim as our guitarist. I wanted non-traditional music and he played exactly what I wanted. I did not get to hear all the music since I was hidden away and had to take photos when the ceremony ended. I did hear the song I choose for my entrance, 'Everlong', and it was beautiful. I also heard a song I asked Jim to arrange for the recessional, 'Longer' by Dan Fogelberg (one of my favorite singers). It was beautiful.Sent on 07/11/2019

Jim is a truly talented musician and we were so lucky to have him perform at our wedding. He worked with us to coordinate song choices that highlighted our personalities and helped establish the right mood and ambiance for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Jim accommodated our unique requests and did an outstanding job. His performance during our processional was very powerful and moving. The guests were struck by the atmosphere he created. He is a gifted musician that can emulate many styles. We received so many compliments from our guests on his performance and we feel very fortunate to have found him. Thanks very much, jim!Sent on 06/15/2019
