Since joining Gigmasters in 2009 James Woolwine has established himself as a professional soloist of the highest caliber. An award-winning dual instrumentalist with two degrees from Berklee College of Music, he performs on piano and/or guitar.

As a pianist James strives to offer his clients a wide variety of the music they love at a reasonable price. He maintains a well-known repertoire of Classical, Jazz, and Pop/Rock music suitable for all occasions. If you are unsure what music will be most appropriate for your event, James can help you make the best selections from his repertoire; or if you just want a nice background mix, he can create the perfect ambiance. He's also delighted many clients with his willingness to learn new, and often non-traditional songs, upon request. No music is off limits. From Bach to The Beatles, if you want it he'll figure out how to play it for you. He is always happy to bring his own keyboard if a piano is not available on-site. James has received awards/scholarships for his piano skills from the Roanoke Valley Music Teacher's Assoc. and the VA Lion's Club.

As a solo acoustic guitarist James maintains a concise mix of original, Classical, and contemporary fingerstyle music that is ideal for weddings and/or background ambiance. (His Gigmasters song list is for piano. He maintains a separate guitar repertoire which can be requested via email). As with piano, he is also happy to learn new guitar music clients request in advance. He transitions seamlessly between fingerstyle and flatpicking, and often incorporates a looping pedal to create amazing sonic textures. Recently, James won 1st prize in "Advanced Fingerstyle Guitar" at the 2014 Topanga Banjo/Fiddle Competition. People who are looking for expert guitar music will appreciate James' talents.

In addition to his instrumental skills, James is also a talented songwriter and occasional singer. He can sing vocal cover songs requested in advance.


"Working with James for my wedding cocktail hour was great. He was very prompt and professional in his response to my messages. Just speaking with him a few times gave me the utmost confidence that he would deliver a fantastic performance, which he did. James really set the tone for an elegant evening. He will come highly recommended to my peers in search of musical talent for any event." - Dan D.

"I was very happy with your performance at my daughter's wedding. My family and friends enjoyed the music you chose as well as your piano skills. Your playing added to the festivities of the evening. We would certainly hire you again if the occasion arises." - Jane B.

"When our booked pianist disappeared a week before our wedding, I started to go into panic mode. Thanks goodness James came to the rescue. Not only was he available to help us on such short notice, he did the most wonderful job playing a varied selection of music to appeal to our guests. I would highly recommend James for any special occasion." - Caitlin B.

James was amazing! He always returned my emails in a timely fashion and provided tips and reassurance when I was worried about song selections. James made my wedding feel more intimate and everyone remarked on his playing. He was dressed to the nines and was unbelieveably talented! Lastly, what I thought made him really great is he went through the receiving line just to meet my husband and I formally and wish us the best instead of just walking out when his time was up. I couldn't recommend him more highly and would use him again in a heartbeat.
