Hiring for your special Wedding Day?

Jeff says: "I offer what I believe to be the most unique musical wedding experiences from one company in the Midwest area.

4 Unique Music Experiences in 1 full day:

Ceremony - Full Acoustic Instrumental Ushering in and out, Wedding Party, Processional, 1 or 2 songs during the ceremony, Recessional. I offer a full list of ceremony songs and if requested well ahead of time can learn a new one as well. P.A. (sound system is included in the price)

Cocktail Hr - A variety of background acoustic guitar and vocal songs while your guests mingle prior to dinner (timing is up to you)

Dinner Hr - Here the music atmosphere changes to instrumental ensemble music with a 3-4 piece band sound with music acoustic/electric Jazz, Blues, Swing with guitar/piano/sax/percussion at a background level. Timing will include party introduction (if requested) speeches, and any other special piece requested. I am also available to give a dinner prayer/blessing if needed.

Reception Dance time/requested music. The Reception is completely catered to your tastes, some choose a traditional reception with a 1st Dance, Father/Daughter Dance - Mother/Son, Wedding Party Dance, Bouquet Toss/Garter, as well as a dollar dance. Others choose a more laid back wedding with some of these or none. On the music end, I create what you'd like for you evening.

With the Jeff James Live Looping Show you truly get a full band sound without the full band price. In addition to the Live Music, I will also offer places during the evening for music that perhaps I wouldn't normally play live (i.e. Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Cupid Shuffle, Electric Slide, etc) You can even make your own non-explicit playlists if you'd like. The music I provide ranges from Classic Rock, Rock, Country, Blues, Acoustic Rock, 50's-2000's. You and your fiancé choose from a list of over 450 songs. You can choose as little as 5 songs to as many as you'd like. (this even includes for the cocktail hour.)"

Jeff James was absolutely amazing!! He made our wedding ceremony all the more perfect!! Before the wedding, he came and sat with me for a while and went over everything that he was going to do during the ceremony. He did a great job reassuring me that everything would go perfectly. Jeff is an extremely talented guy! During the recieving line after the ceremony, everyone was asking me who he was, and where i had found him. I was very pleased with his performance, professional attitude, and great personality. I would recommend Jeff to anyone. He was wonderful! Erin Kodesh
