Very entertaining and a good showman. Everyone enjoyed his performance. Beautiful music and talented group. I asked Jerry Ford to play a comedy song for the group as it pertained to Model T Fords and this was a Model T Ford Club. He had the music for about three weeks prior to the event, but I really don't think he or the piano player even looked at the music or the words until they opened it up on stage and attempted to sing and play it. It was a disaster! Other than that, I was very pleased.

Jerry Ford Orchestra’s Response:

The music was sent to another group who couldn't do it; NOT ME! We were given the music a few days before our performance by that person. We had some fun with it at the event. Being a "gag" song, I was not aware they expected a perfect professional performance which we were capable of doing ... my mistake. I did, however, visit every table and our entire playlist consisted of "requests" of the people in attendance.

Jerry Ford did an exceptional performance for my 1940's themed Birthday Party. His live orchestra made the event a real throwback to the original 40's days. The music was perfect, the singing was exceptional and his overall demeanor and professionalism couldn't have been better. I feel like his music made all the difference in the world and my party will be talked about for months! I will definitely recommend him to anyone. If the situation arises for a similar party, I will use him again. My guests were amazed that I had a live orchestra and he fulfilled all my expectations. Thanks for a great job, Jerry.

The evening was a fundraiser for the USO. Jerry Ford Orchestra was perfect. They performed a wide range of music from the 40's and 50's. Jerry was very accommodating and helpful when we planned the evening, which, at Jerry's suggestion included the playing of each military branch's themes during the introduction of our veterans. Twin Oaks would recommend Jerry Ford Orchestra and will probably schedule them again for next year’s fundraiser. As for as professionalism, the band traveled 2 hours knowing that the performance might be canneled due to weather.
