JERRY IS A VERY EXPERIENCED FULL TIME PROFESSIONAL Jerry has played up to 254 events per. year. Born and raised in Louisiana, his travels in music have taken him to 49 states and 6 countries in Europe. Ok that's the end of the third person part. LOL I was exposed to a "GUMBO" of styles. Over the years I added more tools of the trade starting on GUITAR then adding,SAXOPHONES,FIDDLE,FLUTE,KEYBOARDS and HARMONICA. I play as many instruments in the songs live as I can to keep it as close to the artist that I cover as possible.
Here's some of what my CLIENTS say: This is the second time we hire Jerry for an event and he did an unbelievable job both times! I'm already working on getting him back next time we have an event!! Our customers love him! Thanks Jerry! -Jesus O, Lilburn, GA (gig ID# 684700) To say that Jerry Fordham exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. A week later my wife and I are still talking about how amazing he was. Not only is he a top-notch performer with a wide range of musical talents, but the professionalism and obvious integrity he showed in his work blew us away! Many thanks again to Jerry Fordham and his 5-Star performance and to Gigmasters for giving us the opportunity to discover him. Book him today! You won't be disappointed. Best Regards, Brendan and Ashley -Ashley S, Travelers Rest, SC (gig ID# 599434) Jerry was wonderful. Not only talented on many instruments he was also very accommodating to our guest that felt a need to sing . He is a person I would love to use again. Sharon Clem -Sharon C, Cleveland, TN (gig ID# 609884) Jerry was fabulous! I booked him for my husband's 40th Birthday Party. Despite the intense GA heat and humidity, Jerry was wonderful! All of the guests enjoyed him and we had a range from young kids (age 3) to older adults (mid 60's). The party was at our neighborhood pool's clubhouse and people at the pool raved about him. He plays such a wide variety of music and instruments that everyone can enjoy! -Lauren O, Sandy Springs, GA (gig ID# 703702)
I am a full time professional musician playing six to seven days a week, sometimes twice in a day. I love to play. About seven out of every ten gigmasters jobs I play runs longer than the time requested.
I'm versatile playing several instruments and styles of music. I have played venues ranging from weddings, high school Graduation parties, night clubs, restaurants, dinner parties, food and wine tasting on yachts, Jimmy Buffet pool side, to outdoors in the middle of nowhere around a Bon fire, using a generator for power. I've also played for mixed listening and dance parties. I can play from your selected list of artists in addition to taking guest requests through out the evening. . I can also plug in an I-pod to play any special music you may want to do during the evening or for dancing. I have around 22 hours of music. If you have any questions please call or email me.
Thank you for taking the time to send me a bid request. :)
Some of my first songs I learned were by CCR, Allman Brothers Band, Jimi Hendrex. Over the years the list has grown:
Vam Morrison, Dave Matthews, Allman Brothers, James Taylor, Jimmy Buffet, Jim Croce, Eagles, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Jack Johnson, Gin Blossoms, The Meters, Edwin McCain, David Sanborn, Charlie Daniels, Tull, John Prine and many more
