Wow! I can't speak highly enough about Jimmy. From beginning to end he was amazing. He helped us choose our music for our wedding, was always immediate in his responses, delivered EXACTLY what he said he would and was simply fabulous. He is an incredible musician and my wedding guests enjoyed him so very much. Hiring him was one of the very best decisions we made in the entire wedding planning process. I wish I could have been a "guest" at the wedding to be able to enjoy all of the music he played without the other wedding demands..... Thank you Jimmy for treating us with such love and kindness and being so patient with us the whole way through. You are THE BEST!!!

Jimmy was awesome! We booked him a few months prior to our out-of-state wedding and, from the very beginning, he was very prompt in responding to all of our questions. Jimmy learned several songs not in his original song list and played them better than the originals during the ceremony. He showed up exactly when he said he would and brought all of the equipment needed (including a microphone for the officiant) and even briefly went over the itenerary again right beforehand to put me at ease. We would without a doubt recommend Jimmy to anyone for any event. Of all the stresses involved in a destination wedding Jimmy was the only part that was worry free. Thanks man!!
