Jim Loftus: Reviews

Lehigh Valley, PA musician Jim Loftus has managed to establish himself as a working musician of diversity and as a gifted crafter of songs. He writes his own music and lyrics and recently produced his own CD, which is filled with pop rock, R&B, melodic ballads, and tunes with a Latin flavor(sample "Senorita Tell Me Why" on his CDBaby site). "The Fame Game", produced by the popular vocalist and keyboardist on his own label, Loftusongs, is being played on several local commercial and collegiate radio stations. Loftus writes in the same league with established artists Billy Joel and Elton John, emphasizing melody and lyrical content. It's very radio-friendly, and I invite music fans to check him out!--Jerry Duckett
The true meaning of original music. All songs written and arranged by this versatile singer/songwriter Jim Loftus. This CD("THE FAME GAME") has a unique style all its own, at times mixing soul, jazz, with a hint of pop in one recording, tastefully done. The smooth harmonies are very refreshing. Engineered by Dana Fehr and Pete Davis at Signal Sound Studios(Quakertown,PA--www.signalsound.com)
Thanks Jim for giving me "The Fame Game"...been listening to it...your CD is killer.
Jim-- I must tell you (and am writing you a formal letter of recommendation from our party) that all of our guests on June 6th enjoyed you beyond words can express. Steve and I could not have asked for more! You are a delight, have magnificent talent, and I personally wish you all the best you desire. Not only were you wonderful, but the fact that you allowed Emily, Steve''s daughter, to play a song with you MADE her day, which in turn, touched us greatly!!! Steve and I both hope to have more events as the years pass and certainly will ask you to be there either for a performance or pleasure as we feel you have also become a friend. While this is informal and a more formal note is forthcoming, thank you for everything you did for Steve and I at the Brandywine Manor Inn on June 6th! You made our wedding reception a golden memory and believe me, after having a fairytale wedding in Greece, this ranks just as high! Kind regards always, Elizabeth

Jim- Thanks for making my wedding so special. I have had many comments on how wonderful your music was (not including my mother!). One of my colleagues at Northampton Community College who attended has mentionedyour name around here. Good luck in the future, and I hope our paths cross again soon. Carolyn and Steve Moyer

(GIGMASTERS BOOKING): Dear Jim, Thank you so much for helping to create such a festive and magical atmosphere for our wedding. We appreciate the time you took to learn and play "Cavatina" and "Layla". It was wonderful. Our guests truly enjoyed themselves--it was great to see so many people dancing. They complimented your talent all night long. It was perfect! Thank you again.

Hi Jim,

Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did at my mother's memorial. With all the emotion of the evening, we were all very fortunate for the musical "energy" you added to the event. You rose to the occasion with "For You" by John Denver and I appreciate your learning it in a fairly short period of time. Everyone was impressed by your warmth and musical talent and I hope we can do something together in the future.

Good luck with all your future endeavors!

Best regards,
Bob

Additional Comments:
When I orginally found GigMasters, 3 Days before my mother's funeral, and reviewed the GigMasters Entertainers in the surrounding Camden, N.J. area, I knew right away from Jim Loftus' Photograph, Entertainer's Profile & Experience he was the person that I wanted to perform at my mother's funeral family repasse. I liked the fact that Jim has a 24 Hour Respone Time to let you know immediately whether he is available or not. I noticed alot of GigMasters Entertainers have a 3 day & some have up to 10 days respone time. I personally found GigMasters & Jim Loftus services professional & very responsive to my needs & reasonable. Jim's positive attitude & musical talent helped my family to continue to celebrate life as we gathered to eat in the midst of our grief. I highly recommend both GigMasters & Jim Loftus.

Hi Jim,
Thank you so very much for our reception music last evening [Villa Pazzetti @ Saucon Valley Country Club]...You could not have been more perfect. You kept the proper tone throughout the evening and lent warmth, humor, tenderness, and romance as a backdrop. I hope we can engage you again.
Our best to you.

Jim: I wanted to thank you for your performance at McCartney ‘til Midnight[the closing ceremonial gala for the Linda McCartney Photo Exhibit at the Allentown Art Museum]. I heard only great things about you, and the event was a hugely successful one for us. I was sorry to have had to miss it.
Best, Shana
