"James Kalal is a very talented guitarist & a pleasure to work with." — Maddie Guerrero, PRI Productions

WEDDING IN JEKYLL ISLAND, GA
"I cannot say enough about James and Sylvia. They played beautifully for our reception. Even the kids loved the "jazz". They played latin, flamenco and even Led Zeplin's Stairway to Heaven. They were both very pleasant and travelled from Jacksonville to Jekyll Island for our reception. We could not be happier to have James and Sylvia play at our reception. Our guests were thrilled and absolutely loved the music. Very classy. Some said this was the most beautiful reception they had been at. I highly recommend James and Sylvia for your wedding if you want something different than a DJ. They made our reception very special. Thanks to both."

James and Sylvia were wonderful...our main goal was to find a banjo player for our friend Mike’s birthday. James offered his banjo talent along with Sylvia’s guitar talent. They were great and very entertaining...James played the guitar also. They had a wide variety of music and were able to fulfill requests too. Mike was more than pleased with this birthday surprise. We definitely recommend James and Sylvia as entertainers...
