Jim Falbo is an accomplished and eclectic solo guitarist and composer who has played for 20 years and entertained many different audiences in various events including weddings, churches, concert halls, mansions, restaurants, wine tastings, among many others. Jim's recordings have been featured on 99.5 Classical MPR and 88.5 Jazz FM radio. Jim is the recent winner of the 2017, 2016, and 2015 Couples' Choice Awards for wedding musician. As an artist in high demand, Jim adds a great level of enjoyment to all in attendance wherever he plays. Jim has received shining reviews while performing in various Classical Guitarathon's and most recently performing in the 2014 Minnesota Guitar Society Classical Guitarathon. Jim works closely with clients to make sure they receive what they are looking for musically on their big day.
He has released four albums with his latest "Guitar Reveries" which combines a unique blend of classical, Latin, Spanish, and contemporary favorites on guitar.
Jim plays a wide selection of music, specializing in Classical/Romantic European and Latin American music (especially Brazilian). Fingerstyle acoustic guitar is also a style he enjoys playing. He also enjoys playing contemporary songs arranged for solo guitar by artists as varied as John Legend, Sara Bareilles, Chrisina Perri, Eric Clapton, John Mayer, and many more. Artists from yesteryear are also in his extensive catalog and are as varied as The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, The Beach Boys, Elton John, and Elvis Presley. Outside of the popular pieces in Jim's repertoire, he plays an extensive amount of pieces that are "hidden gems," and would be favorites if the listener had known they existed.
He is a true professional that caters directly to his clients needs from the beginning of the booking process to the special event. With over seven hours of memorized music, Jim's versatility and ability to cater to every taste is un-paralled.

Even though so many reviews for Jim were related to weddings, I chose him to play at my father's memorial service, after listening to him and deciding that the string quartet option was out of our budget. I made the right choice! After discussing my Dad and his musical tastes, he put together a perfect play list that included classical guitar mixed with some of my Dad's favorite pop tunes. He even learned a favorite hymn and a special song by Joanie Mitchell that was not in his repertoire! Jim made the enormous responsibility of choosing this music easier. He was prompt, kind and so talented! He honored our Dad's life through his gift and I am so grateful. Amazing!
