Another Great Event!

This was the second event we have hired Jim to play for our group - this time it was an afternoon Garden Party at the White Orchid at Oasis for about 60 people. Jim’s music provided the perfect backdrop for an elegant and festive cocktail hour and dinner party. He always knows exactly what to play for easy listening along with some nice music for dancing!

A Nice Flow

Mr. Blackburn was very punctual and attentive to our requests. He made our gathering as intimate and familiar as we wanted it. His music was soothing and entertaining, lively and fun at other times. He is very personable and it made our Saturday night a memorable experience as it had the perfect mixture of art and entertainment.I will hire him again for future events as I want to listen to the variety of genres from different times that he can play.

60th Anniversary Party

Jim is a real pro--very talented with a great music selection. He played for us for four hours and everyone loved him. He even learned my parent’s favorite song so he could play it for them. He took our party to another level. And he was lovely to deal with.

A Great Addition To Any Event!

Jim did a fabulous job providing background music for our daughter's wedding cocktail hour & dinner. We corresponded with Jim a number of times via email to outline our thoughts for the event. Jim was always prompt in his response. Jim took our direction and planned a wide array of musical selections that was pleasing for all who attended. His music was entertaining, the volume level was perfect, and his proficiency amazing. Jim was a delight to work with and added such a special touch to our cocktail and dinner hour! The guests of all ages, loved the music he provided! I would highly recommend him to provide background music for any event that you may be planning. We look forward to booking Jim again for another future event! Bravo!

Made Our Wedding!

Jim made my wedding ceremony and reception perfect! He was extremely helpful ahead of time to work with me on song selections and to help me focus on different parts of the entire evening. He even took time the day before to walk with me around the venue to ensure everything would go smoothly. His music was unbelievable and I was fortunate to have the evening videotaped so I am able to listen to it over and over. I hope I can find another occasion to hire him.
