"Jim played during our wedding reception and did an excellent job. He provided the
perfect background music during our dinner reception and helped to create a very lively
and enjoyable atmosphere. We received multiple compliments on Jim’s performance
from our guests and I would definitely recommend him. He is a talented musician and we
couldn’t have been happier with his work." 5/17/21 CS
