James was very professional from the moment we started talking to him. He was immediately responsive with everything that we discussed along the way. Everything was perfect from his professionalism to the beautiful music that made our daughter’s wedding ceremony so special! I look forward to the next event that we can have him play at. He is a very talented and very nice young man!Oct 27, 2020Verified

I threw a surprise birthday party for my wife and he made it an even more spectacular event. He was personable, had an array of song selections, and most importantly knows how to play! Thank you again for making this event a memorable one that she will be thinking of for years to come. Truly spectacular. Thanks again brotha!Feb 7, 2021Verified

James was excellent for our wedding ceremony. From start to finish he was exceptional. We requested a number of songs and he was able to play them all so beautifully. It really accentuates all of the wonderful emotional moments. He was early, had everything setup nicely and in the right placement, and he was very cordial and professional. I highly recommend James!Oct 3, 2020Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Distance travelled and amount of time performing are the two biggest factors. If there is a large amount of material to learn, rehearsal time may be added as well.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?If the customer is hiring me for an event, I will ask what they want to accomplish. For a recording/composition, I would ask what their vision is and explain what feelings they would like to communicate to the listener. From there I can be more descriptive as to what I need from the customer to finish the project successfully. My purpose is to help make your great event even more memorable.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went to NYIT and Purchase college. have been actively playing for wedding events and shows for over 6 years. These ranged from ensembles to play tanGo music, latin music, jazz and classical ensembles. I studied with a professional performer for around 10 years.
