James was extremely accommodating with music selection. His performance was absolutely beautiful. He arrived early and was professional in every respect. I would highly recommend this extremely talented pianist; he far exceeded expectations. Grab him for your event before some other fortunate soul does!
James was really fun, played all my requests, and had an incredible variety of music- my guests couldn’t stump him! Amazing to find someone equally happy in pop songs, soft atmosphere music, and difficult famous piano works. Thanks James!
James absolutely lit up our event with his extraordinary talent and kind nature. Fielding all of our requests with ease, chiming in on melodies when it was clear we needed guidance, collaborating harmoniously with our diverse chorus of voices and personalities, he made my parents 40th Anniversary Celebration truly unforgettable. We love you, James!

James Lent was unbelievable and played our requests from jazz (Bill Evans) to Country (George Straight and Garth Brooks) to classical Latin music. We are family of musicians and where thoroughly impressed with his performance! I'd highly recommend him. Manuel J Ramirez CPA
James was awesome. I had asked for a special song for my wedding and he was able to play it. He is very professional and extremely talented
I cannot say strongly enough how pleased we were with James Lent. He is a true professional. He arrived in plenty of time so that when our guests started arriving really early, he was ready and simply started playing as if that was the time we had agreed on all along. Our guests commented on his talent and style. He gave just the right touch to the evening. The five stars for rating aren't enough. On a scale of 1 to 5, I'd give James a 25! I recommend him highly.
Wow! We can't say enough about James! We had a cocktail party/wedding reception and booked him based on his reviews on gigmasters. He was exceptional, from communication before hand about songs we liked, arriving early, dressed professionally and gave an amazing performance. He brought two other instrumentalists to accompany him after playing by himself and that worked out so well. I received so many compliments on the music. He was very accommodating to requests for several songs, and was very skillful in playing around our "toasts". He is amazing and would use James again in a heartbeat!
James was perfect for my friends' wedding. He came totally prepared and was a very good sport when we threw a curveball or two at him. He followed our group of tipsy non-professional singer adeptly and with good humor. He also graciously accepted our invitation to hire him for an additional two hours when the guests didn't want him to leave, which is the best sign of all.
James was extremely easy to work with. It was a last minute idea I had, and James came through with a beautiful performance that will remain in our hearts forever! Thanks James!
James elevated our Christmas party at home to what seemed like a performance at Disney Concert Hall! My husband and I were so impressed by his enormous talent and his incredible lack of ego for someone so accomplished as a musician. He ranged from the most complicated pieces of serious classical to the jingle bells sing along variety with out skipping a beat! His enthusiasm got the whole crowd singing along (not easy in LA!!) and he was very happy to play any requests. He was prompt, organized and extremely professional too. We would recommend him to anyone who loves beautiful piano music and we will definitely be booking him in the future! Thank you James!!!

Did a wonderful job that created just the right atmosphere for our family wedding event. Took requests, adjusted to different groups young and old as well as birthday moment for a 5 year old playing with him. We had high expectations and James delivered on all levels.

Mr. Lent is not only talented but personable and able to adapt to the needs of host and guests. He's also versatile and his playing appears to be effortless. He is responsive to pre-booking questions and was punctual. He's turnkey so you can concentrate on other host duties. The party got rave reviews and a big part of the party was the music. No need to look further. Just cross your fingers he isn't otherwise engaged. If he is my advice is to have your party on another night.
James seems like a great guy, very talented, easy to work with and a super piano player
