Jim Falbo was an incredible addition to our wedding day. As the bride, I had such a carefree experience in planning with him ahead of my day, and he performed beautifully and without added direction or assistance from me on the day of. My guests were raving about his skill, and he has an extensive library of options to select for your day. I highly recommend working with Jim, and I thank him so much for being a part of our day.

Jim Falbo was a true professional and helped make our wedding day beyond beautiful and special. He made the entire process easy for us, and gave clear guidance in selecting ceremony songs to best accompany the day. His experience and musical craftsmanship were wonderful, and were noticed by all 200 guests in attendance. I would recommend him to any newly weds, or anyone for that matter, looking for the perfect musician to accompany whatever day they are celebrating. Hats off to you Jim!

I have great things to say about Jim's work at our wedding! My brother, a pretty unemotional guy, said that Jim's music during the ceremony helped to set the mood enough that it brought him to tears! If that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is. Jim has a wide, diverse repertoire, and that made it easy to plan music for our ceremony. He was even able to ad lib between parts of our ceremony as a transition, too, which we hadn't planned--I was so appreciative of his ability to be flexible in our context. His playing was also a great backdrop for the start of our cocktail hour. My only regret is that I couldn't spend more time listening to him as the bride!
