Here is the one vendor I can't honestly comment about. Our wedding was a somewhat destination wedding, and he was one of the vendors I dealt with mostly over the phone and through emails. Jimmy was wonderful before the wedding. We knew what to do and expect way beforehand. When we went to dinner and to see him play at Zogg's, he pulled up a chair after his set and sat down to discuss every part of our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour so that even though my husband and I would probably miss most of his performances, we knew what he would be doing. He played the songs we requested, and I did hear "Here Comes The Bride" during my walk over the dune and to my new husband's side. He also played our wedding song ("You" by Chris Young) on the steel drums during our sand ceremony. Friends took a few video snippets, but since we missed the cocktail hour due to having our pictures taken, we didn't get to "dance" to the steel drum music :(Sent on 09/25/2013
Friends and family who attended our wedding continue to compliment the steel drummer and how different, special and tropical it made our ceremony seem. Thanks, Jimmy G!!!

Jimmy was a pleasure to work with. He was receptive to our requests and preferences and arrived plenty early and set up on the beach with no issues. He was even able to provide a wireless mic for our officiant (we used a friend). The music of his steel drums added the perfect touch to our beach wedding!Sent on 10/06/2016
