Working with Jim was great! We hired him about two weeks before our wedding and spoke with him about a week before and he was able to do everything that we wanted and more on the day of our wedding. He jumped from the organ to the piano in the church and he even sung during out candle lighting ceremony. He has a beautiful voice and adds a very special and personal touch to any job he does. We highly recommend Jim for your wedding or any special event. Thank you Jim!!!--Julie G.

Jim played at our wedding ceremony and he was VERY professional. He was there early and after the ceremony he came to us to make sure everything went how we wanted it. We definitely will recommend him. We had last minute requests and he was able to accommodate every single one. That's what you call a professional. Everyone at our wedding loved him. He made our day very special. Thank you Jim!- Katherine R

Wedding Ceremony in Harrisburg, PA(Harrisburg Hilton)on 04/27/2013:

Jim was excellent! We gave him a specific list of songs to play during our ceremony and our cocktail hour and he knocked it out of the park! Many of the songs he had to learn as my wife and I requested some unique songs that aren't typically translated to the piano and Jim did an amazing job. I had many of the guests ask me where I found him and that they loved his playing. I would recommend him to anyone searching for the perfect pianist for any event!  --Joe N.

Wedding Ceremony in Stroudsburg, PA(Stroudsmoor Country Inn) 04/20/2013:

We booked Jim for our wedding based on his Gigmasters reviews and he did not disappoint. We booked him for our ceremony, cocktail hour and first dance and he was very professional and easy to contact in the days leading up to the wedding. He was willing to learn new songs, including the one I walked down the aisle to, which was beautiful. Our guests raved about what a great job he did and we couldn't have been happier. We would hire him again in a heartbeat! Thanks again, Bill and Holly-- Holly H
