This review is based upon our experience with The Jim Lower Trio for our elder daughter's wedding in 2018. Suffice it to say that Jim and his gents were a real find. . . so much so that we're about to hire them again for our second daughter's wedding this year! The Jim Lower Trio understands who they are and why they have been hired. They are exactly who you want for your special event.Aug 3, 2019

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I price everything as fairly as I can. I base the prices/quotes entirely on the number of musicians, hours and guests expected. I will generally include 1-2 prices if the customer is unsure whether they want just a trio or a trio with vocals and my prices are always negotiable. We won't typically provide a huge discount for non-profit or fundraisers. I will say I always do my best to work with-in your budget and will put a group together that will do what you need at the best price possible.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I don't use a one size fits all process for working with a new customer. Every customer has a unique situation and budget so I try to customize a package for every potential customer. If I did have a process I would say listening and finding out exactly what the customer is looking for is the key to every successful event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a bachelors and master's in jazz studies. In addition to my academic background I teach music courses at JCCC, Penn Valley and UMKC. I also help my wife run her bakery and am pursuing a master's in Accounting at UMKC to become a CPA so I understand the art side of jazz but also the business side of running a small business and working with other businesses.
