*GigMasters BEST of *2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015*
I was exposed to a "GUMBO" of styles growing up in Louisiana.---
I hope your planning is going well!
I'm in the categories you listed. Where I am different from my competition is, there is not a gigmasters category for singer/ multi instrumentalist. I Sing, play acoustic Guitar, Electric guitar, Saxophones, Flute, Fiddle, Keyboards and Harmonicas.
I keep a close eye on what my fellow musicians in gigmasters are doing. Most of them are good, the difference is, it's vocals, backing tracks and one instrument, the guitar. I offer more verity in songs (over 800) and in instruments I play..
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 or acoustic guitar on instrumentals of popular songs (soft jazz tunes), at cocktail hour, dinner, fallowed by first dances. I have a wireless microphone for you and your guest to make announcements or toast right from where your seated.
Most clients like a mixture of live and I-pods to some funky dance tunes. I have the connections to plug in I-pods, cell phones.
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.
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. (I also have a portable generator if the event is located on a beach or outdoors location away from electrical power)
Here are some genuine reviews from past clients.
Thank You for your time
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. Best Regards, Brendan and Ashley -Ashley S, Travelers Rest, SC (gig ID# 599434)
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)
Jerry gave our event a personal touch that was meaningful in many ways. Our party took place on our dock, and Jerry helped carry out that theme by preparing and singing a parody of "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay"...with the words changed appropriately for our 70 and over crowd. He also gave attention to my dad's 89th birthday, my 3 year old granddaughter by singing "The ABC Song", and by performing "Lean on Me", a special tribute to my friend with terminal cancer. We were literally "Dancing in the Moolight" with wonderful, lively dance tunes. I simply let Jerry know ahead of time of any special requests and he did his utmost to make the party what I wanted! -Cindy And Dave M, Soddy Daisy, TN (gig ID# 1129625)
Jerry was great! I hired him for a physician christmas party and he is all that has been talked about since. Everyone who attended has commented on how great he was! He was very accomodation to my request. We will definitely be hiring him again! -Candace E, Fort Payne, AL (gig ID# 1561818)
