James Cavern played the perfect acoustic music for our wedding cocktail hour. He sounded great and played beautiful songs.
James was simply amazing as our emcee for our battle of the bands event. He showed up early, was patient when we started late, and was so professional (and talented!) on stage. He really understood how to connect with the audience and was an absolute pleasure to work with off-stage, too. Would recommend to anyone.
James was an amazing addition to our wedding team! He played beautifully for both the ceremony and cocktail hour. His voice and rendition of songs were so original that all my guests were asking about him! His vibe absolutely fit our intimate, outdoor wedding. Thank you James for a memorable evening!
James was beyond amazing and personable to work with. I found him 3 weeks before our wedding, thinking it was even a long shot he would say yes. He did and it was the best gift we could ask for. He immediately wanted to get to know us, what were about and how he can make our day so special. He was extremely accommodating and flexible. As soon as he sent us a preview of his music for the day, we freaked. James played our music for the precessional, recessional, cocktail hour and our first dance. We still are receiving praises about James from our wedding. If we could, we would have had James play the whole night and hang out with us too! I strongly recommend James to do anyones wedding!
James was perfect! I just asked him to do his thing and play whatever he would like and he was fantastic. We had a cocktail party style wedding reception. He started off as just background music really and then as guests got comfortable, he ramped it up and played music that made you want to move. I had mentioned that my fiancé/husband and I were big Lumineers fans and he ended the night with Dead Sea. It brought the room to tears as my husband and I danced to that last song. A
His performance was absolutely beautiful and it was a pleasure to meet James.
We couldn't be happier with our decision to book James to perform at our wedding! He added such a unique flair to all the songs he sang, and our guests were so captivated by his performance. He was the talk of night! We would definitely hire him again. Thanks James! We are your biggest fans!
We booked James for an intimate show and his professionalism and performance was amazing. We were thrilled by the preparation and on-site coordination he drove to deliver a seamless performance. His talent is undeniable and everyone was giving us compliments about him. Talent combined with his professional approach really sealed the deal for us and I would highly recommend.
James Cavern is AWSOME
He is a multi talented artist. We booked him for our wedding on short notice, and we couldn't be happier with what he did for my wife and I.
We continue to support him at local events and he ALWAYS takes time to come sit with us and talk for a little while.
We will continue to support him in his music career and future endeavors. His soulful sound has a certain way with everyone's ears. We loved his performance and his music.
James is amazing! Unbelievably talented! We have heard him at a wedding, concert, and even rocking out in an amazing backyard party!
James was gracious enough to perform at our wedding. He sang me down the isle and learned and sung our first dance! It was amazing that he was able to learn our complicated wordy song and sing it so eloquently. We wanted every piece of our day to be personal and he definitely was a huge part of that vibe! Hopefully one day when he is uber famous we can look back and say hey that guy performed at our wedding. He was extremely professional and worked with our DJ to make sure everything was timed correctly. He got to the event early and was ready to go when we were. I would highly recommend him for any event you have especially a wedding! The only thing we wish he would have done was stick around and party with us after HA!
I first heard of James through word of mouth, and was impressed with his immense talent through watching his videos online. My wife and I had our wedding date set for the fall of 2012, and wanted a unique musical addition. We met James at a local performance and were blown away by his talent and how personable he is. We hired James on the spot to play during our cocktail hour, and into dinner. James took a personal interest into our musical taste, and even learned new songs for us! 4 years later and guests still rave about James and how great he is!
James and I were roommates on NBC's The Voice so I got to see up close and personally how talented he really is and how much he loves music. It's inspiring. He's one of the hardest working musicians in the Bay Area and well on his way to becoming an independent international touring artist. Having him at your event will almost certainly be the highlight of the party. You just don't find talent like that around every corner. Highly Recommended!
