Introduction: I have a network of musicians that I work with to provide the best quality of jazz/blues music at reasonable rates for you. For example: • If your guest list is between 15-75 people, my solo guitar or guitar with a bass player would be a good fit for the occasion. • If your guest list is 75-150 people, I would recommend my trio comprised of guitar, sax and bass or my quartet with guitar, sax, bass and drums. • For larger occasions where the guest list is 150+ then my quartet with guitar, sax, bass and drums is an excellent option for that “extra bit of punch”. That said, my trio has played many events for the 150+ guest list too! — it all depends on your budget. My brand of music is tasteful jazz/blues, including many of the songs from the “great American song book”. The style and sound of the music compliments any cocktail or dinner party, wedding reception, or special occasion where adding live musical entertainment is desired. We always play at the appropriate volume level for the room—never too loud—loud enough to be heard and enjoyed by your guests. There are no hard and fast rules about which musical option will work best for you, these recommendations are simply a guide to help you decide what appeals to you. With this in mind my rates are:* SOLO GUITAR — $100 Per hour. DUO — guitar and bass: $400 for 2-3 hours of music. TRIO — guitar, sax and bass: $600 for 2-3 hours of music. QUARTET — guitar, sax, bass and drums: $800 for 2-3 hours of music. For more information please visit my website where you’ll find additional reviews and audio samples of my playing. I would love the opportunity to help make your special event or occasion the success you want it to be! *ATTENTION PLEASE READ: Quoted rate is only the actual "hourly rate" and does not include additional fees i.e. parking fees, travel distance as well as any fees Thumbtack adds onto the cost — I WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO KEEP YOUR COST AS CLOSE TO MY HOURLY RATE AS POSSIBLE!! If there are any parking fees, usually my customers provide a parking voucher, validation, otherwise it's added onto my base "hourly rate". I accept cash, checks or PayPal, Credit Cards (2.75% additional charge will be added for the credit card transaction.)

It’s hard to express in this review how Amazing Jerry was…. Not only was the entertainment top notch but he is the most pleasant human being I have ever had the pleasure to meet.. if you want quality and have the most amazing experience..please please do not hesitate to book him… our family absolutely loved every moment.. we hired Jerry for our Fathers 80th was a complete shock to him when he heard the soft musical sounds that came from another room… this made his birthday so special it was the cherry on top we needed to make his day complete! Jerry you are amazing and we are so thankful people like you exist in this world!! Until next time!!

Hi Elizabeth, All I can say is thank you for the warm welcome you and Otis gave us! You have a wonderful family and it was a privilege to meet them all--Thumper and Tiger too! Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your celebration for your dad's 80th birthday, he's an amazing guy! Please don't hesitate to reach out to me for any other events you may want music for? In the meantime stay safe and be well. Best, Jerry

Jerry and his two musicians were fantastic. The music was appreciated by everyone who attended. The comments were all related to how great the music was. We were so pleased with the balance of the holiday music and jazz. The team was professional, timely and the music quality was top shelf. We will definitely hire again. Trust me. You will love what Jerry does.

Hi Terumi, I am so pleased that we met your expectations! It was a wonderful event with wonderful guests! It was an absolute pleasure meeting and working with you. Thank you so much for your kind review, I'll let my guys know--by the way they very much appreciated working with you as well. Please keep me in mind for any future functions InterVarsity Press may need music for? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Regards, Jerry :D

I highly recommend Jerry! He was an absolute pleasure to work with. He promptly responded to all messages, he graciously accommodated our requests, he is both professional and kind. Very reasonable rates. And his musicianship is stellar! We hired the trio for my parents’ 50th anniversary party and everyone is still talking about how great these guys were. The music was outstanding. Yet, guests felt comfortable to continue to mingle & chat and the trio played on with flourish. Really can’t recommend Jerry highly enough. Hire him - you won’t be disappointed!

Hi Joseph! I hope you and yours are keeping safe during these unusual times. Since I have had an extraordinary amount of extra time these days, I've been catching up on things including reviewing my calendar dates back thru 2019 when I noticed your review! I must have missed it--my bad! I didn't want to let it go without thanking you for having us be a part of your family's special occasion and for the very kind review you gave us. We are looking forward to having our calendar once again take bookings, until then, stay safe and have a great summer! Best, Jerry

Jerry's solo jazz guitar was the perfect choice for our dinner. The live music made our gathering more special. He is also a very personable man, very professional, and we enjoyed working with him. I would most definitely hire Jerry again, be it solo guitar or a combo band.
Jerry D. Tiberi's reply
Thank you Helen! More than anything else, what is most important to me is that everyone enjoyed themselves and that I helped make your event a successful, memorable one. It was a pleasure meeting you guys — and your son Sean really helped me out with some tech issues on my phone! Great guy! Take care and have a wonderful rest of the summer! 👍

We hired Jerry and his band to perform at our cocktail party and were extremely impressed with the entire experience. Band was on time and very professional, music was top notch (impressing even the jazz enthusiasts in attendance), and their performance really elevated the quality of our party. I’m looking forward to hiring them again soon!
Jerry D. Tiberi's reply
Hi David, Thank you so much for your review! It means so much to know we did our job and that we did it well. More than anything the reward of knowing my clients are completely satisfied with the music we provided far exceeds anything else! This is our livelihood and our reputation — in this business — is only as good as our last performance. I look forward to working with you again soon! Have a great Spring! Warm Regards, Jerry
