JP was AWESOME! He showed up on time, ready to get to work! He was excellent in reading the crowd and playing music to suit the mood. We really enjoyed the life he brought to our event, a surprise 40th birthday party. I would not hesitate to hire JP again or recommend him to others looking for live entertainment for their events. HIRE HIM! You won't regret it :-)Feb 10, 2020VerifiedJ.P. Garmon's reply
Thank Ms Breanne! It was a pleasure to provide the Live Music for Britney's birthday party. Please let me when I can be of service in the future!
Great time with J.P.! He played a nice mix of music, took requests and added his own color on the music he was playing. He was also very flexible on start time too. We will definitely use him again. Great job P.J. And thanks for kicking off our holiday weekend!Jul 4, 2020VerifiedJ.P. Garmon's reply

We hired JP to play at our pig roast party last Saturday. He was great! From the beginning he answered all my questions and even called a few days ahead to make sure everything was on track. The day of show the show, he also arrived early and with plenty of time to set everything up. I would hire him again for any event and recommend him to anyone looking for a local musician who knows some good tunes.Jul 14, 2020VerifiedJ.P. Garmon's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I typically work with customers who have a budget of $300-$600 for a Solo Musician. Several factors come into play that can result in the variance. I will be happy to discuss those with any interested client. For instance if you are an Venue manager that hires musicians on a recurring basis it may be possible for me to work with a lower budget. Please contact me directly to discuss.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I encourage the customer to check out my online profile and reviews. Once they are satisfied that I am a good fit I require a small deposit to hold the date. The balance would then be due the date of the event. If the customer has specific tunes they would like to hear I will work to add those to the lineup given enough time to make them sound good. I will go the extra mile to see that they are happy with my services.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over 40 years experience, playing, writing, and singing music. It is my passion.
