He was very prompt and professional in his response to my messages. Just speaking with him a few times gave me the utmost confidence that he would deliver a fantastic performance, which he did. James really set the tone for an elegant evening. He will come highly recommended to my peers in search of musical talent for any event." - Dan D. "I was very happy with your performance at my daughter's wedding. My family and friends enjoyed the music you chose as well as your piano skills. Your playing added to the festivities of the evening. We would certainly hire you again if the occasion arises." - Jane B. "When our booked pianist disappeared a week before our wedding, I started to go into panic mode. Thanks goodness James came to the rescue. Not only was he available to help us on such short notice, he did the most wonderful job playing a varied selection of music to appeal to our guests. I would highly recommend James for any special occasion." - Caitlin B.

Review by Jenn W.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 6, 2011From Charlton, MA

James was amazing! He always returned my emails in a timely fashion and provided tips and reassurance when I was worried about song selections. James made my wedding feel more intimate and everyone remarked on his playing. He was dressed to the nines and was unbelieveably talented! Lastly, what I thought made him really great is he went through the receiving line just to meet my husband and I formally and wish us the best instead of just walking out when his time was up. I couldn't recommend him more highly and would use him again in a heartbeat.

James was just phenomenal! Very professional and accommodating. He was helpful and easy to work with throughout the process leading up to the actual event. James answered emails promptly and provided the specifics. He did an amazing rendition of my parent's favorite song. I highly recommend James. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
