James Duchon is so amazingly talented that we have wedding guests still calling us to remark on his performance. He was outstanding! He added such a special touch to our wedding and made it all come together. James played during our ceremony as well as our reception and was spectacular throughout both! His voice is phenomenal and we could not have found a more talented guy if we had searched forever. He not only has such a gift musically, but also is such a warm person. It was a pleasure working with him and we really appreciated his being so accommodating and flexible. James, we will never forget how much you helped make our day so special. Nikki & Craig
I attained my bachelors degree in music education from the University of Toledo in Ohio. While pursuing my degree, I studied classical guitar under the guidance of Amy Brucksch (Dept. Director). I have attended National Guitar Workshop master classes in Connecticut that featured the amazing Sergio and Odair Assad, Antigoni Goni, and Nathaniel Gunod. I have attended the International Guitar Workshop at Stetson University in DeLand, FL where Oscar Ghilia performed and gave a master class. Also, I have taken private lessons from Jeff LaQuatra.
In addition to performing as a musician, I also DJ. You may find my DJ webpage if you scroll to the bottom of this page. Under "Related Press Kits" there is a link to: JC Productions.
I currently reside in New Smyrna Beach, FL where I perform at many local venues. Recent gigs include: playing aboard the 70 ft. sailboat Schooner Freedom while under way in St. Augustine. I played at a VIP event at the Daytona International Speedway. I opened for Herman's Hermits in Hollywood,FL. I was also hired to perform as a singing telegram for the girlfriend of an overseas military officer. God Bless our troops!
