I am a classically trained vocalist and musician. I also write and produce original RnB music. I play piano and guitar and specialize in jazz and blues. I can play anything from renaissance/baroque music and Spanish guitar classics to Brazilian Jazz and swing standards. I know most popular music and Top 40 hits and I can learn anything, even on short notice.

There is so much to say about Jason , he is absolutely amazing ! I was so hesitant going through gigsalad for the first time and never meeting Jason but he blew our minds . Our guest couldn't stop talking about him . We decided to hire Jason for the whole night of our wedding, originally we were only going to hire him for 2 hrs and play music from our playlist . Jason took care of everything ! He learned all the songs we requested and made sure to play the songs we loved . He made it so easy on us and came well prepared .... we felt like he was family ! I promise Jason will not dissapoint you ! Thank you Jason for making our day even more special !
I feel fortunate that I came across this site and was able to hire Jason to play at my party.
Jason is absolutely the best. Jason is well prepared and and he took the time and effort to ensure that everything was perfect for my party. Jason performed our playlist and he was complimented by my guests the entire evening. I was a true privilege to have Jason play at my event & I hope to have Jason work with us again on future events.
Response from Jason Diaz:
Thanks Rick, it was so much fun to play for you!
Jason is a professional from beginning to end! Prompt with communication in planning, arrived on time, and is so talented! Our guests enjoyed his musical style and mix of original music and renditions of well known songs. A wonderful performer to have at any event.

Jason was amazing at our wedding, couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you so much! He is extremely talented!
Response from Jason Diaz:
Kurt and Anna,
Thank you so much for having me. It was a beautiful ceremony. Wishing you and your little one all the best.
Jason was a perfect choice for the Anniversary Dinner I had planned. He put in a lot of effort to learn the songs I had requested and sang them beautifully. Great Job! Would definitely recommend to anyone and hope I get the chance to use again.
What to Expect
Jason always puts on a captivating performance of cover songs as well as originals. A classically trained musician and jazz player, he's very flexible and can make last minute adjustments with ease. In addition to being a fabulous singer and guitarist, he also loops his guitar and vocals and creates a wall of sound using his laptop. A dynamic performer and never afraid to engage his audience, Jason makes any occasion a day to remember.
Jason was born to sing. His childhood was lost to hours plunking away on a small, Yamaha keyboard and recording into a toy karaoke set, all the while trying to belt it like his gospel-singing, Baptist mother. Raised in the church, he penned his first tunes at the organ, but then quickly decided that hymnody was not his style.
In his rebellious years, he met his first guitar – an old Harmony electric, straight out of the Sears’ Christmas catalogue. He taught himself a few blues licks and power chords and began to find a new voice – one born deep and straight from the soul. It was this voice that would take him away from home in pursuit of the ever-elusive Hollywood dream.
Fast forward a few years later – Jason and his band have shared the stage with artists such as Rocco Deluca, Nikka Costa, and Jonathan Foreman, as well as countless local indie favorites. His songs “Paper Roses” and “Aftermath” – from his 2008 self-titled EP – appeared on network television shows Gossip Girl and Ghost Whisperer in fall 2009, helping him to earn a brief stint on the first season of NBC's the Voice.
On May 15, 2015 under Mirrorball Entertainment, Jason released an EP of five songs that feature a fresh albeit mature sound. With the help of uber-talented producers Stefan Skarbeck, Coleman Trapp, and industry icon Tony Maserati, he has created his best work to date.
Just this past Christmas, he also released his first self-produced and engineered record and Christmas EP "Modern Day Carol," available on iTunes now!
