Booked Conor for a themed holiday cocktail party for 50, and he filled the air with 80s to 00s pop, sprinkled with some Christmas music. He was prompt with his communication before the event and involved me in establishing the setlist. For the event, Conor was on time with arrival and setup, and he sounded great singing his renditions of each song. Great personality and a smooth performer! Would definitely book him again.
Response from Conor James:
Thank you Andrew! It was such a pleasure.
Connor was fantastic to work with and he learned many new songs we requested. His talent is amazing and was the perfect touch to our special 100 th bday celebration. He was quick to respond to my questions and requests. We highly recommend him for any event.
All I heard all night on Wednesday is, "He's amazing. Where did you find him?"
My entire office was impressed with Conor's voice, professionalism, and talent. He got to the space before me, help setup the microphone, and was very responsive. His set list was great. Was very encouraging and patient with one of my colleagues who wanted to sing with him.
I would recommend Conor to anyone looking for a talented musician/singer for their event.
Conor was very professional and talented. He performed beautiful songs for our event .
Response from Conor James:
Thanks Armand! Had an awesome time
We loved having Conor at our daughter's graduation party. He sang songs we requested, as well as his own songs and songs he knew we would like . His cover songs of Lady Gaga and Adele were more than impressive! Conor is truly talented . My guests loved him. The only drawback was that he didn't have a microphone or sound system, so I had to hire a DJ and share the time for the same fee. I paid for four hours, yet he only played for two. I would still hire him for his talent and that's why I gave him 5 stars, but he needs to bring his own sound system.
Response from Conor James:
Thank you so much for your positive review, Maritza! It was such a pleasure playing for you and your invited guests. I would like to clarify with anyone who is looking to book with me that I do not own a sound system or a car to transport one, and I cannot travel on public transport with that much equipment. If you're interested in booking me, I am happy to help you find a sound system that you can rent to amplify my voice. Otherwise, if your venue is smaller, I've played several gigs where I sit at the grand piano and play acoustic and my clients have seemed pleased thus far with that. Again, much appreciated Maritza! Best wishes X
Conor played a Christmas party at our house and he was really talented. The quality of artistry in his videos is consistent with what he presents in person: a crystal clear silky smooth voice, and the piano skills to back it up. He was prompt and professional and even took some requests from our guests. Conor really made our event special and we recommend hiring him for yours!
Conor is simply stunning. The way he captures an audience with his style transforms you. He connects to a deeper level than most and when looking for a composer, I yearned for that! He surpassed my standards and I recommend him 1000%!
What an intimate sound and feeling Conor creates. He is not only an incredible talent but also a joy to watch. His moments of humanity come through as he connects with his audience on so many levels. I can't wait to see this man live again. One day we will say 'I remember seeing Conor James in a bar in downtown New York, now look at him'.
