*GigMasters BEST of *2012, 2013 & 2014*
I was exposed to a "GUMBO" of styles growing up in Louisiana.---I Sing / Play Acoustic Guitar / Electric Guitar / Fiddle / Mandolin / Saxophones / Flute / Harmonicas / Keyboards. I thank God for the talent he gave me and use it to the fullest of my ability and practice like crazy to sharpen my skills.
I do more than just a singer and guitarist, or a One Man Band (with One Man playing one instrument) playing over recorded tracks.
I play several instruments, record some bass and percussion where needed, use loop pedals and achieve a full band sound.
I have a wide verity of songs to please you and your guest.
For weddings I've played Prelude music, music for Honored guest, Processional music and Recessional music.
In receptions the most common agenda has been cocktail hour, dinner, then the reception.
I have played Saxophones on instrumentals of popular songs (soft jazz tunes), a light mixture of songs at dinner,the first dances right away and sometimes after some toast to the bride and groom.
Sometime the clients like a mixture of live and I-pods to some funky dance tunes. I have the connections to plug in I-pods with the song list set.
I remember a wedding I played in north Georgia I changed I-pods 4 times, one from the bride, the maid of honor, the groom and the best man. I have plenty of first class PA gear and lighting equipment for the dance floor.
Your event is about you, and what fits your needs. I have the experience to do weddings, parties, corporate functions, any event that would like live music and done well.
Here are some genuine reviews from past clients.
If I could rate Jerry higher than a 5, I would. The age group at our party ranged from 5 to 74 and everyone had a great time...even the teenagers! He is not only a talented musician, but also gracious and accommodating. There was not one request that he did not play and he even performed one song twice (by request). I have seen Jerry play in bars and now at a private party and I don't think there is anywhere that he would not fit in. Jerry would be a fantastic addition to any party or gathering. I highly recommend him! -Mariann M, Dalton, GA (gig ID# 1719151)
Jerry was amazing and unbelievably talented! We enjoyed everything about his performance. He could play so many types of music from the classic rock we grew up with to today's country. All the different instruments he could play were exceptional. He kept us entertained all night long not only singing and playing the guitar but did so much more with the sax, flute, and the fiddle. In addition to that Jerry was a super nice person and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Jerry highly for any occasion! You helped make our engagement party a night we will always remember!! -Margaret H, Cumming, GA (gig ID# 628370)
We've had Jerry for two different events in our neighborhood. He is fantastic. Not only is he talented, he is professional, fun and easy to work with. We are planning to have Jerry for future events and always look forward to his music and having him as part of our festivities. Thanks Jerry for always making our parties remarkable! -Kimbrel A, Alpharetta, GA (gig ID# 1684509)
To say that Jerry Fordham exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. A week later my wife and I are still talking about how amazing he was. Not only is he a top-notch performer with a wide range of musical talents, but the professionalism and obvious integrity he showed in his work blew us away! Many thanks again to Jerry Fordham and his 5-Star performance and to Gigmasters for giving us the opportunity to discover him. Book him today! You won't be disappointed.
