    Jim Perona Amazing Guitarist!

    Jim Perona did an amazing job performing at our wedding and reception! Not only was his music absolutely beautiful and exactly what we wanted, but he was a pleasure to work with! His communication was great! He was very responsive and offered great advice. He has a vast selection of music to suit all tastes and was willing to learn new songs as well! We couldn’t have been happier and many of our guests commented how much they enjoyed the music as well! We would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for a guitarist. He’s the best!

    Simply beautiful

    Jim was amazing to work with for our ceremony music. He is so talented, but more importantly, such a nice guy! He was able to learn 3 new songs for us, and we even got to have a preview on Zoom before the big day so we could hear the music. We talked through the flow of the ceremony and he made us feel so comfortable. The music was absolutely beautiful and everything we wanted. We even got a recording of the songs to enjoy time and again. Thanks, Jim!
