Our ability to sing in many languages enhances the authenticity of performing at a theme event.

Jim and Sylvia received many complements from our guests after their performance. They are truly wonderful performers and I would recommend them highly. They even went to the trouble to create their own guitar rendition of a piece that we wanted them to play. Wonderful!! They made our ceremony truly memorable and their music was beautiful.

I love him..I definitely want to book him again, he's so humble and gentle in spirit. I had a wonderful time listening to him, the party guest loved him some even asked about his services. It was great, can't wait to party again and book him, the party will never be forgotten and it was truly an honor to have him play at my house and party, he's wonderful with the guitar. God gave him a wonderful gift to display.
