Introduction: Hi! My name is Tim Ward Jr. I'm a Philly-based songwriter, guitarist and singer, and I'd love to provide live music to enhance your event, whether it be a milestone birthday, a block party bash, an intimate wedding ceremony, a surprise engagement, or a cozy house concert. I've performed music live over the past 15+ years in many different settings, and some of my favorites have been private events, where I've had the privilege of being a part of those meaningful moments in people's lives. Depending on your budget, event type and space, I can play solo (guitar, voice, harmonica) for a singer-songwriter feel, or hire accompaniment (e.g. percussion, piano, bass, strings, additional vocals) for a fuller sound. Part of my package includes bringing my own sound setup as needed. My repertoire accentuates rock, folk, pop, and original compositions, and I've got the versatility to learn and play a wide variety of songs. Let's talk about your event and how I can help make it an unforgettable experience!

Tim was the entertainment for our backyard wedding celebration. When I say our entertainment, I mean not only his music but he, himself. The musical ability of this young chap blew the guests away. From the wide spectrum of genres in his quiver, to the artfully curated wedding playlist, to the inviting nature he brought to our guests, Tim absolutely nailed it. You can tell he has been painstakingly perfecting his craft for some time. He has an ear for music and a true desire to share what he has learned with the world. Whether through his own music or his teachings.

I used to play in a band with Tim 10 years ago. I’ve always loved Tim’s versatility with different songs and different styles of music, his funny and easy-going personality, and his full commitment to professionalism when it came to practice and gigs. Over the past year we have reconnected for a few gigs (one being my wedding and another a large family reunion) and man it has been the best experience. Tim has the ability to entertain the crowd, keep people guessing what song he will play next, and make everyone feel part of the experience by taking requests and engaging in great back and forth banter with the crowd. I would recommend Tim for any gig because I know he will put on a great and special show, and from my own experience, Tim is one of those musicians that I feel privileged to have shared a stage with. I look forward to doing it again soon or seeing him perform on his own.

My wife recently hired Tim to do my 40th surprise party. He was outstanding and provided such great entertainment to our guests. His song list was perfect and he even took a few requests. It got people up dancing and had the whole party singing along at times. Tim is a true professional who provides the highest quality of entertainment. We highly recommend hiring Tim for any party or event you might be hosting.

I recently hired Tim for my husbands 40th birthday party and he was a hit! He provided the perfect vibe and added so much fun to the party! I gave Tim very little direction and background on music to play but he knew exactly how to play for the crowd. He had great tunes to start the night while people mingled and great tunes at the end of the night as people started dancing and singing. I had several people reach out to let us know how great the musics was. I HIGHLY recommend Tim to enhance your party!

Tim played for our firm's 20th anniversary party. He was great! He was very helpful navigating some of the specific needs of our venue. And our guests loved him. We have had several requests for his contact information!
