About
"Jabe exceeded our expectations by far! He was prompt, professional and very personable. His rates were very reasonable. He added the upbeat vibe to the party that we were looking for, and all of the guests loved him!!! His play list was extensive, and was comprised of songs that everyone knew. I would, without question, hire him again for any function! He is a very talented musician, and a nice guy on top of that! I would definitely recommend him to all of my family and friends. Thanks for a great evening Jabe!"-Janette C, Trabuco Canyon, CA (gig ID# 1263717)

Hello my name is Jabe Amato and I am a solo guitaris singer. I play and sing anything from the Beatles to Foo fighters and everything in between. I also take requests and offer a fully interactive experience or subtle background music. My rates are based on length of gig, distance and if you need me to learn any specific songs for your event.

I am a very friendly guy, easy to work with, fair, honest and prompt.
Please note I also play Ukelele for that Hawaiian vibe.

Please take a listen to my cover songs on the upper right... this is a true representation of what I sound like live.

These tracks were recorded live in the living room in one take (I did record guitar leads after I recorded the initial guitar and vocals together)
I actually can pull off the guitar leads over the guitar rhythms live with the help of my little loop recorder foot pedal that I used on select songs.

Jabe was amazing at our wedding ceremony and during cocktail hour. He showed up way before schedule to set up and make sure everything was going to run smoothly. He needed very little direction and was very professional during his performance. His music was amazing and all our guests were very pleased. We definitely would recommend Jabe to any and all of our friends for events. Thank you Jabe! You made our wedding that much more special.

Jabe was amazing from start to finish. He was very professional, friendly and very open to suggestions. He took the extra time to learn the songs that we wanted to hear during our ceremony. We really liked his voice and music selection when we first heard him play live at a local Newport Beach pub. He also followed up with us right before our big day to discuss the final location setup, since we had 2 locations at the venue: ceremony and cocktail hour. Overall, we were very happy to find and book him. I would highly recommend Jabe to my family and friends for their future events.

Jabe is the consummate professional musician who knows how to manage a party. He was very well prepared with the playlist we planned. Everyone asked us where we found him and wanted his card! We would not hesitate to hire him again. Thank you, Jabe! You are a good egg. :-)
