He is very personable and interacted with the guests. He had us all clapping and singing along. He has a great singing voice and is a very talented musician. We were all impressed by his performance.

Jimmy is always a hit when he performs at our Happy Hour!

If Jimmy has not been here for a while I have residents come to me and ask when he is coming back. We have Jimmy here as often as his schedule will allow. The residents and staff enjoy his performance very much. Jimmy is very personable with the residents and tries to take a moment to visit with them if time allows. It is always my pleasure to hire Jimmy for our happy hour here at The Lakes Retirement Community. Thank you for your fine entertainment Jimmy!

Review by Pamela A.

Jimmy is an absolute pleasure to work with. He’s prompt, professional, arrives nicely dressed and most importantly, draws a crowd for my business.

I own a small boutique/gift shop in Idyllwild, CA and have hired him on several occasions. Every time he has brought in more business than I had to pay out hiring him. When he is performing, my store is full of people. I often look out as he is performing in front of my shop and people are standing around, singing along and sometimes even dancing to his music.

His attitude is also wonderful: Friendly, positive and not a clock-watcher. He often stays an extra 10 or 15 minutes if he has gathered potential customers for me. And, did I mention how much my employees and I love to listen to his music while we work? He’s an outstanding musician and singer and is great with people!

Review by Brad P.

This event was a private dinner at the St.Regis Resort. However, I've hired Jimmy Street as a sax player/featured vocalist for hundreds of major corporate & private events for over two decades. In a word, Jimmy DELIVERS. He is totally dependable, always on time, dressed right, plays and sings with soulful artistry, and he's great fun to work with. When I hire Jimmy, I know MY own clients are going to be totally pleased, and that's the bottom line.

Booking Info

  • Typical Gig: 60 - 240 minutes
  • Fee: $100 to 250 per hour + travel exp. when applicable
  • Languages: English
  • Unions: AFM

Overview

What to expect depends largely upon what the client wants, but here's a typical private party:
1. I arrive early and set up in plenty of time before the guests arrive.
2. Usually, the first hour or so the guests are arriving, mingling and eating, so I keep the music relatively low-key: Standards, soft jazz and easy listening vocals.
3. As people finish up their dinners, I pick up the music and interact with them, encouraging them to sing along or dance.
4. I usually close the evening with a really up-beat icon that everyone knows and likes to sing and dance to.
5. I'll bid the guests farewell, thank them for coming and recognize the host for putting on a fabulous party.

If there are any announcements, I’m happy to make them, and the hosts or distinguished guests are welcome to use my microphone for toasts, speeches or simply to welcome everyone.

Additional Booking Notes

Since I do a solo act only a small stage is needed. Providing easy access to electricity should definitely be considered as well.
Placing me in an elevated, strategic location so that I can be seen will allow me to interact with your audience far more effectively. I do not have lighting, so consider that an important element as well. Placing me in a well-lighted location will enhance the performance 100%

My dear friend and cohort, Jimmy "Street" Reeves has been a part of my musical life for 25 years. We started our friendship while we were in Big Daddy (Rhino Records). Ten years later, it continued in The Hodads until this day. In all musical situations, Jimmy has been the frontline star and spark. His entertainment acumen is unparalleled.

– John Hatton Bassist/Vocalist for The Brian Setzer Orchestra, Jose' Feliciano

I've had the pleasure of utilizing the multi-talented Jimmy Street on three different occasions, all of which were tremendous successes. Besides his terrific musical talents, one of his greatest strengths is his ability to "know his audience". His attire, set selection, and stage manner always fit the audience. He's always on time and always is gracious to fans after the performance. I would recommend him without hesitation.

– Ray Adams President & Group CFO Aviation Leasing Group Kansas City, Missouri

Jimmy Street is an excellent addition to any musical presentation, from instrumental-based jazz and pop to his extraordinary vocal capabilities.
Beyond those gifts, he brings terrific showmanship to the stage, and is always able to build a great rapport with an audience.

I have worked with Jimmy in everything from small "background music" gigs to full production concerts, and his attitude and contribution are always 100% plus.

Influences & Inspiration

I have been influenced by wide variety of musicians, singers and entertainers. From singers like Frank Sinatra or Michael Jackson to jazz musicians like Paul Desmond or David Sanborn or classical flutists like James Galloway. I am by no means a 'specialized' act. I play a wide variety of music and styles...but everything is a memorable piece of music that just about everyone has heard and enjoys.
